[[folder: How did Greed know about Envy?]]
* How did Greed know that Marcoh defeated Envy when he ran after Father and Sloth after Pride was trapped? He wasn't anywhere nearby nor did he have the time to ask anybody about it.

** Greedling has Greed's powers because of his philosopher's stone. Wrath's philosopher's stone gives him his Ultimate Eye and nothing else because he's supposed to pass as a human that was elected as president, so him having regeneration powers wouldn't have worked with that.

[[folder: Why not break the circle?]]
* In regards to the [[spoiler: Nationwide Transmutation Circle]] why not break the circle, it's not a permanant solution but it would stop the transmutation right?

** Amestris is established as a warlike and alchemically advanced nation in the series, with several border conflicts raging while the main plot was happening. Anything weird happening probably makes the other nations fearful that Amestris just made a ''major'' advancement, and that they'd better watch their step. Alternatively, the border posts saw the Amestrian guards drop dead, then ''revive''. Either way, no one is messing with Amestris for a long time.

** Doubtful. Such positions usually do have some basis in family lines, but to actually reach those positions requires skill, not being "chosen" for them (Even if such skill is primarily political). If they were indoctrinated, it was more than likely once they became [[spoiler: indoctrinated once they reached at minimum brigadier general or higher.]] That way they have the necessary clout to actually affect the plans already in motion.

** That's easy, Ed used some of Envy's Philosopher's Stone to pay the toll to get back out. By the time Ed and Al discuss their time in The Gate, they no longer have access to any.

So a giant transmutation circle surrounding essentially an entire country lights up during the eclipse. Does no one see this? No soldiers on any of the 3 countries Amestris has strained relationships with notice their opponents collapsing and ceasing all movement/sound? Despite the very obvious roar and flash of light he creates during the anime, is Father in some sort of invisible spiritual world? I wouldn't think so, since the people being can clearly see the giant black hands rising out of the ground, but what was the reaction of the other countries?
* Probably their reaction was "Let's stay the ''hell'' away from whatever's happening over there!"

I assume this is most likely a misunderstanding of the scene but when in Gluttony's 'stomach', they escape by Ed Transumting himself to open the eye of truth that was present in Gluttony. After this, Ed tells Al that he saw his body, who said he couldn't leave without his own soul. So why doesn't Al transmute himself (so there is no perceived 'taking' by truth as it is only himself) and try and grab his body in the gate. Even if it doesn't work, it's worth a shot. It's that they don't even discuss it which bothers me.

*** Just a nitpick here: [[spoiler: there were two countermeasures. ''Scar's brother's'' countermeasure got rid of Father's alchemy blocking. ''Hohenheim's'' countermeasure put everyone's souls back.]]
