As Edward’s thoughts turn to finding his brother, we return to Alphonse and Hohenheim…
Al knows everything. About Xerxes, about what Hohenheim and Father really are. He knows everything and he chose to believe his father was telling the truth. Good ol’ Alphonse.
Maaan, so much is being talked about here! Hohenheim explaining what it feels like to be immortal, explaining that if Father’s body is destroyed then the dwarf inside him will be as well (so basically, the duplicate body is essentially a fancy glass container)… Also, Hohenheim identified the mysterious Transmutation Circle from Scarface’s Bro’s research as “A reverse transmutation circle” but supplied no further comment on what the fuck that means.
Hohenheim also warned Alphonse about Pride, and advised against trying to destroy the tunnels.
Finally, Alphonse raised a question I’ve been wondering about. If Hohenheim is, well, Hohenheim… Does that mean Edward and Alphonse aren’t regular humans? Hohenheim assured his son that they are. So I’ll have to trust him on that one.
It makes me so, so happy that these two are working together. I’m looking forward to Edward’s reaction to the truth about his father as well… Though, Ed hates Hohenheim a lot, lot more than Al does.
