After Kyo runs away from Toru, Akito comes out of hiding. Still full of loathing for the girl, Akito grabs a knife and prepares to attack Toru. Akito fears the future, now unknown and without guarantees. Toru offers Akito a chance for both of them to start over, and as Akito reluctantly reaches out to clasp Toru's hand and possible redemption, the ground underneath Toru gives way, plunging her to the bottom of a ravine.

Kimblee in charge - and he promptly sets about coercing the Elric Brothers into helping move the Homonculi's grand schemes onward. Using the hapeless Winry as a bargaining chip.The Elric Brothers have no choice but to trust the loyalty of the soldiers of Briggs - and the ethos of their mortal enemy, Scar....
