Ep 13 – “Beasts of Dublith” / “Daburisu no Kemono-tachi” (ダブリスの獣たち)

Edward and Alphonse are expelled by Izumi, becoming her equals rather than her students. Meanwhile, Mustang announces to his five subordinates that they are all transferring back with him to Central. Scar, recovering in an Ishvalan squatter colony, is advised by the elder that pursuing the current state alchemists would not do the surviving Ishvalans any good. Scar leaves the colony after having to defeat two thugs recruited by Yoki, who wanted to capture Scar and bring him back to Central, due to his connections to the murder of Basque Grand. Alphonse, lured to a trap after reading a threatening note regarding his secret, is captured by Roa, Bido, Martel, and Dolcetto, all of whom are chimera employed by the homunculus Greed. Edward finds Greed, who proposes teaching homunculus fabrication in exchange for learning human transmutation. An enraged Edward charges at Greed, who uses his ultimate shield to make himself invulnerable to Edward’s attacks. However, Edward is soon able to counterattack by transmuting Greed’s ultimate shield. Izumi arrives and intervenes, taking Greed by surprise.
