Episode NotesEdit

  • The events in this episode mark the first time (chronologically) Ed transmutes by clapping. In the manga and Brotherhood anime, Ed discovered this immediately after learning to use his automail.
  • In the report from Shou Tucker that Roy Mustang is holding just after the opening, the nation of Britain is mentioned twice, despite the story taking place in an alternate world that does not include the nation of Britain. The report itself reads like an excerpt from a textbook, describing the Scientific Revolution and advancements made in that time.
  • Mustang's silence when asked about Shou's wife indicated he either suspected, or was fairly certain of, what Shou had done to her.
  • The Elrics' assistance in helping Gracia Hughes give birth to Elicia is based off their involvement in the witnessing of Satella LeCoulte giving birth to her son in the manga and 2009 anime. However, while Winry, who was present in that version, helped Satella deliver her baby while the Elrics watched, the Elrics helped Gracia deliver Elicia in the 2003 anime.
