If you ever doubt where Edward Elric looks to for parental guidance...
I’d like to direct you to the last episode of brotherhood.
Here, he is pretty much telling Hohenheim to screw off after suggesting Edward use his life to bring Alphonse back.
He’s crying, the only time he calls Hohenheim “father” is in a sentence calling him a lousy one.
Edward is crying and upset and then he looks over…
With tears in his eyes…. who is he looking at?
He’s looking at a certain Colonel and Lieutenant.
AND REMEMBERS THEIR WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT
and that helps him calm down so that he can think.
And we all know the conclusion.
BUT I’M JUST SAYING. HE LOOKS TO ROY AND RIZA AFTER DISMISSING HIS BIOLOGICAL FATHER.
