Here we go...

So our speculations were correct. Envy is indeed a child of Hohenhaim, perhaps from one of his lovers, and I assume Hohenheim left him when he was young. Perhaps returned later to find him dying, and made him a homunculus? I don't see any other reason why he'd harbor hatred. I mean, Hohenheim left him to go have other sons with another woman.

I don't understand how they're going to bring Archer back. Don't get me wrong, I'm one of the few who love Archer, but all that will fix him is a fragment of the stone. Did you see? he's still bandaged like a mummy -poor baby. ;_;

OK, so Tucker transmutates Nina, but he had no way of bringing back a soul. I mean, there isn't a soul left to fix, right? Scar took care of that back in the eps, when he turned her inside out. Though perhaps, with more help, he could do it. I'd like to see Nina back.
Because of this, we found out everytime the stone is used, it erodes, thus eroding Al's body because he IS the stone. Now that Ed can't touch him, there's no way to transmutate his armor back to the way it was. Game over.
And if they do make Lust human, it would probably have to be the second to last thing they do. This all depends on how much energy is used. Taking Al's body and afixing his soul will be last for sure because it uses the most energy. Creating a body out from scratch.

All in all, I personally think Envy will be the last homunculi to be defeat. This means that Lust and Pride could POSSIBLY live. I don't see the Fuhrer as completely bad and neither Lust. Wrath might liv too, but I don't know if I see that happening; Sloth dies in the next ep.
But right now, I'm more worried about Roy and Armstrong. Their chances of dying are 50/50 unless someone puts a stop to the troops moving. -__-

I can't believe it, 5 eps left. Of course, then there's the movie :D but I personally think there should be another season. But we can't forget our beloved manga!

It would be an extremely bad idea to kill Roy plot-wise; not to say it won't happen (because who knows), but he's essentially shaping up to be the second protagonist in the story. Although I love Al, Roy initiates MUCH more action and parts of the story than him (and story wise that's what's important). It would nearly be on the level of killing Ed off if Roy were killed.

Killing off Hawkeye/Armstrong/all other supporters, though, I could see happening. :-/ Roy and Liza's behavior indicated they KNOW that something's up and they're essentially being sent on a suicide mission; that's why they forced Fury and Havok to stay in Central. I don't know why Roy's letting Armstrong go with him, although my guess is it was an order from higher up. (Now that I think about it...I wonder if Liza went? I bet she did, we just didn't see it. Somehow I don't think she would have let herself be left behind; "ano hito o mamoritai" and such.)

Archer just won't die....and Envy's violence in this episode shocked me a little, although given his name it isn't surprising that he's so violent toward the idea of the Elric brothers.

Maybe Riza did come along but, my bet at the moment is that she's taken another route to the North so she can run into Roy and co. (Perhaps under her Margott Orange Peacoh disguise with the whole glasses thing?)

We haven't seen Riza's field experience like we have in the manga (when Havoc was shooter and Fuery communications and Hawkeye the sniper) so you never know. It would be a tad 'wierd' for lack of a better word for Riza to be the only one in like a group of a 5 000 men you know.

I haven't had a look at the sub yet, saw the raw and sub should be done in an hour or so and I'm currently watching hockey >_>; (well, there's the whole NHL dispute and the worried feeling that we won't have a hockey season so...World Cup Hockey's the best we've got at the moment XD)

XD My friend and I promptly after seeing 46 formulated the idea that Mr. Mustang must have a glasses fetish.

Well, even if we don't see women in the military as much, it's obvious that they're there - considering Ross and such - so I think it would be plausible to say that she went just with the normal troops.

My sub downloaded in a half hour - since it's school for me now I didn't bother struggling through the raw and also since it's school the sub downloaded in a half hour and not three hours ^^;;

mm, agreed about Envy and his name.

But yeah, they all feel they're going to die.. but maybe they wont? After all, the stone WAS created, and if Ed and Al get there in time, it cannot be created again.

I just have a feeling were gonna be crying in the next 5 eps ._.

It has seemed to me for a while that Ed, Al, and Roy are the three main characters of the show. (Not Winry, for heaven's sake.) We know that Ed will survive to the movie, because he's the headlining role, dammit. I don't see a logical dramatic progression for Roy's death; he has too much left to do. They'd have to shape it up pretty quickly in the next four eps, and I won't believe it till I see it.

What makes me nervous is Al.

Hawkeye's more of a main character than Winry, IMO. *harbors immense hate for Winry XD*

Al makes me nervous too, especially after what happened in 46. But it would also hurt Ed so much to lose his brother that I'm not sure that would be worth it either. I mean, Roy was hurt badly by what happened to Hughes, but he's also an adult and while Hughes was insanely important to him, Al is insanely insanely insanely important to Ed.

Not to mention that when people die in this series it seems to happen very quickly with little to no foreshadowing.
