Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Episode 5 — Rain Of Sorrows
Published December 7, 2011
After Ed wakes up from a nightmare, the Elrics stop by Mustang's office to inquire about Shou and Nina Tucker. Encountering Lt. Riza Hawkeye, she reveals, as she heads to the crime scene, that they have both been killed. Meanwhile, back in Lior, Lust and Gluttony attempt to cause a rebellion using the faith of the locals, with Envy using his shape-shifting powers to disguise himself as Cornello. Back at East City, as Ed and Al dwell on their limits in alchemy, they are viciously attacked by "Scar." They quickly retreat until they are cornered and are forced to defend themselves, resulting in Scar destroying Ed's arm and damaging Al's body. Just as Scar prepares to finish off Ed, Mustang and his soldiers intervene. Mustang attempts to subdue Scar, but is saved by Hawkeye, who reminds the Mustang that his flame alchemy is useless in the rain. When Armstrong arrives and battles Scar, it is revealed that the man is an Ishbalan. Outnumbered, Scar manages to escape into the sewers, and Mustang tells the Elric brothers about the Ishbal Massacre. The Elrics then decide to head back to Resembool to repair their bodies.
