Psyche! Only God dies.
Scar fights Bradley, revealing his right arm covered in tattoos that reconstruct broken objects, thus bringing about a close to his brother’s research. As May, Ed, Al, Izumi and even Greed (at the last second) fight Father, he bitch slaps them all and starts the country wide transmutation. Seems like everybody dies, i.e. their souls are absorbed into Father. A big ass gate opens up on the surface of Earth and an even bigger ass Father pops out of it. As the giant Father’s coming out of the gate, another gate opens up in space, revealing the eye of someone Father calls out as God. And why call him? The millions in his country weren’t enough, that greedy son of a bitch wants to adsorb God too.
Seriously, what the fuck? OK I understand what’s happening, but why? I thought opening the gate would give Father all the knowledge in the world or some shit like that, how can he possibly absorb God, if such an entity exists in the world of FMA? Or does he already have the power of the gate, such that he’s strong enough to challenge God himself? Whatever the case, a huge explosion occurs at the end of the episode and everybody probably ends up dieing: all the people, our main cast, Father, God, everybody’s dead.
Except not, coz the preview for the next episode shows Ed and the rest of the gang fighting against something. I don’t know why they had to pull off a Gurren Lagann style battle of titans. They’re just trying too hard to have an “epic ending”. That said, anything less and I would’ve been disappointed as well. Eh, for now it looks good; over the top and silly, but I’m liking it, in a OMGWTFLOLBBQ kinda way.
