Some Briggs soldiers escort Winry back home, where she is surprised to find Ed and his group. He warns her to escape to another country, but declines, saying Ed should just make sure he protects everyone. Meanwhile, Scar has recruited several Ishbalans to help in his cause and Roy informs Olivier about Selim. Al, who had been suffering from more frequent blackouts, is ambushed by Gluttony and Pride and captured. On the day before the promise day, Bradley is tricked into taking a train back to Central and is caught in an explosion on the bridge. Meanwhile, Riza, Breda and Feury prepare for tomorrow. Also, within the military, as the "chosen" generals are panicking over Bradley's possible death, Olivier sees her chance to try and take control, but before she could do anything, she is halted by the sudden appearance of Father and Sloth.
