Meanwhile Ed’s group have arrived at the gate to Father’s lair, it opens and the immortal army pours out.
Olivier has the general at gun and sword point and isn’t afraid to show that she means business. The general yells out orders only to be crushed by Sloth who was trying to get both of them. Olivier takes him on.
There’s almost no end to the immortal army as Ed’s group struggle to hold them back. Ed realises that they’re powered by human souls and in order to stop them getting onto the streets he seals the entrance. Before charging in.
A central officer finds himself against Buccaneer. Mustang’s group is still on the outskirts and Hienkel hears Pride banging on Al’s head and recognises it as morse code. But it’s too late as Kimblee arrives freeing him and blowing Hienkel away.
May runs from the immortal army and is able to fight them off to some degree. When one grabs and eats the jar that Envy is in, he takes control and absorbs the army to regain his original form, thanking May.
Marcoh and Yorki are in the slums and learn that the dome has broke but in order to stay out of the way, they stay back.
Prides throws back Al’s head, Kimblee comments on Pride consuming Gluttony, and Al moves towards Hienkel, Pride grabs him but Al breaks off his legs.
Olivier fights Sloth and any officers that move to attack her are killed by Sloth. She throws a grenade but it isn’t enough and he grabs her. He tightens his grip and Armstrong arrives and rescues her.
Al tries to drag Hienkel away as he tells him to leave him behind but Al refuses, cursing his legs. Acknowledging the Al’s views on the stone, Hienkel gives Al the philosophers stone he picked up, in order give Al the strength he needs.
As Pride and Kimblee observe from the side, crimson light flashes as Al steps out of the dust. Leading into the new ending theme.
