Ed, Greed, and Lan Fan have a difficult time fighting Pride, who gained Gluttony's powers after devouring him. Working with Hohenheim, Al allows himself to be captured by Pride in order to grab him so that Hohenheim can trap Pride in a mountain of soil where there is no light, preventing him from using his shadows. Meanwhile, Kimblee begins to move just as Scar's group is told about the bombing of Bradley's train. As the Promised Day begins, Greed goes to Central on his own while Ed's group and Scar's group meet up again to devise a plan. In Central, Roy and his subordinates begin to attack soldiers while using Bradley's wife as a hostage. However, the military higher-ups give the order to kill everybody in the group except for Roy.
