Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Episode 31 — The 520 Cens Promise
Published December 7, 2011
Ed passes on what Riza told him to Al, and the two contemplate about what to do after they complete their objectives, and as to why Scar and May's alchemy worked when theirs was blocked. However, May had run off, so they go and look for her. Meanwhile, Riza, Breda, Fuery and Falman say their goodbyes as they are sent to different HQs, with Roy finding a hidden message inside a chess set Falman returned him. Roy later reminds Ed that he owes him 520 cens, but Ed decides to hold on it until Roy becomes Führer. Roy uses the note he got from Falman to make contact with Grumman. Meanwhile, Fu is shocked to find Lan Fan had lost her arm, and declines Ed's help to find an automail mechanic, since it would involve Ed's acquaintances in their troubles. Afterwards, Knox gets a visit from his wife and son, who are pleased to hear he treated two live patients. Suspecting that Marcoh had escaped along with Scar, Envy releases Kimblee from prison and gives him the task of retrieving Marcoh and killing Scar. Wanting to find out more about Kimblee and the secrets behind his brother's alchemy, Scar destroys Marcoh's face so it will not be recognized, before heading off to the North to recover his brother's notes.
