As Barry talks with Al more, Scar comes. But it seems even he can be put in doubt by Barry's words. Meanwhile, it seems a man has been set free after 130 years. He releases many creatures in Lab 5. Scar and Al then look for Barry, as Slicer agrees to take Ed to where he can learn the secrets of the Philosopher's Stone. Ed then watches in shock as the younger brother wipes away his blood seal even after being treated like a human. Kimblee, along with other prisoners, are going to be researched on. They are lead into a room by Envy, disguised as Gran. As Ed walks with Slicer, he is attacked by some chimeras until Tucker, who is a chimera himself, stops them. As Al and Scar talk, they run into the people in black as Al finds out they are homunculi. After Tucker shows them what they're doing in Lab 5, he takes Ed and Slicer to a room full of red water..
