Question about Ed  
Okay I have one question for now that's been bugging me about the series... 

Why, when Ed's soul was possessing alter!Ed's body, did Hohenheim say that Ed could still find a way back to the alchemy world...?  I mean, didn't Hohemheim say alchemy didn't exist in our world?   And that HE couldn't even go back, even despite his decaying form...?  It doesn't make sense to me.  Unless Hohemheim KNEW that alter!Ed's body would die..thus sending Ed back through the Gate.... But still, I can find no logical *teehee* answer to it.  Once someone arrives in our world, according to the plot, one can never go back...unless...*insert movie plot here*  So...anyone have any clue as to what Hohemheim really meant? Or...am I just being stupid...?

...You know...I'm suddenly thinking about Al...in the armor...and how, at the beginning, he rarely showed emotion...and then at the end...he was FULL of it.  Maybe he was getting used to showing emotion through his soul rather than physicality.

I'm hesitant to put forth any of my theories about what's going on at the end of the series because... well...

It makes abso-fricken-lutely no sense whatsoever!

I mean, seriously, I love the show. It's what got me into the FMA fandom. But honestly, the plot-holes and loose ends are just too plentiful. I'm going to watch the last 6 or 7 episodes over again, to see if there's something I missed.

i decided that without the manga, the animators needed some help with the plot....so they started doing crack. its the only "logical" solution. i mean, there are some plot holes so big that even I can't ignore them!
