Well I don't think, I know that for sure. All I said was that I doubt Ed will be killing Envy himself, since he is known to be soft when it comes to taking lives. Either they'll let a more composed and less "evil" Roy finish him or they'll use him as guide to get through that maze-like place.

Or Riza or Scar could finish the job as well I guess.
Either way, Envy is pretty screwed. >_>

Why didn't they let Roy burn the motherfucker for good?
Manga morals are too soft.

It's one thing to fight Envy to remove a dangerous threat it's another thing to take joy in killing him (although I admit I took joy in watching Roy burn Envy, not so much in seeing what it did to Roy).

Of course I am sure Roy will pull through this and thank his 3 guardians (Riza, Ed & Scar) when it is all over but the next chapter can't come soon enough.
Yep pretty much and the fact that if Roy does kill Envy he will be letting himself being influenced by anger or Wrath. I think this shows significance of Roy avoiding himself becoming like Bradley, nice little symbolism imo.

First of all, have to love the way how Roy burnt Envy, as Hughes. And did any of you realise that he reduced Envy back to his original form in just 1 chapter?

Now what Roy needs is a hit to the back of his neck. The Flame Alchemist needs a break.

What exactly are they supposed to do with Envy besides killing him though? Sure, he could be forced into being a guide to Father for them or something, but keeping him around is something of a danger, or rather an annoyance given how quickly managed to take Envy down.

So we still have Pride and Wrath at the very least on the loose. I wonder who will take Wrath down. Mustang would be appropriate I suppose, but he just got Envy to some degree.

No one's feeling sorry for the cow? You guys suck

That said, I am a bit annoyed with Ed and the others being all soft on this guy. This is a war. You kill your enemies in a war. Period.

Its a theme, Arakawa is telling us that revenge is never the answer, thats why instead of Scar defeating Kimbley its Heinkel whose a minor character and has very little to do with Kimbley other than the irony of Heinkel being a former bodyguard.

A major theme of FMA is that a single life is only worth that life. That's why human transmutation is impossible as there is nothing possible to trade for a life. There was also the scene in the Ishbal War when a leader of Ishbal surrendered in order to spare his people and Wrath just laughed at him and said that the leader was arrogant to think his life was equal to thousands of others. Then the idea of revenge in that you are killing others in response to the loss of another life. In this case I disapprove as Envy is not only a backstabber but also sly and this could very easily lead to problems down the road. Just because Mustang has the wrong motive, he still would have been doing the right action.

The problem wasn't the killing the problem was that Mustang was doing it for revenge, which taints a person.

Compare Scar in the Ishval flashbacks to the Scar we see for most of the manga.

They could've let Mustang burn Envy, and lecture him later

I think all there's left to see is...
Will Riza shoot Roy , and that foreshadowing recap chapter come true...?
or , will they find a way to calm him... ?
Considering how enraged he is right now though , I just can't see how they are going to pull that one off.

Like I said earlier, someone has to smack him at the back of his neck. KO = problem solved.

Expect he's not going to be KO forever , and he's going to want more blood when he gets back up. Especially the blood of those who went against his revenge.

Well either Riza shoots and kills him which would basically make the whole "I want to be fuhrer" thing useless, or they somehow calm Mustang down.

I am betting on the second one since Mustang is the second most popular character in the series.

yeah , and he's very happy about it


But yeah , I forgot about him wanting to be Fuhrer.
Though , should he survive , Just watch as Olivier becomes Fuhrer instead of him.

KO him, tie him up, gag him, and leave him in town with someone else. Or they could convince him to hold his guns, and get to Father for the fight. Of course, whether Envy co-operates is another issue.
