Sometimes Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood comes across as too much of a tease. We're getting so many bits of information, so many little nods and winks towards things to come, that it feels like forever before we get the payoff with it. The last few episodes have been fairly intense with it and the writers know that so we do get some lighter moments here to balance it out, though that's to the chagrin of some who really don't appreciate the humor that sneaks into the series. I actually rather enjoy it for the most part so an episode like this is pretty welcome.
As is the case with many episodes here, there's a lot of little story arcs going on that are all swirling around each other. After Kimblee's being freed previously, we now see him on the hunt for Scar as Scar makes his way through the train system to his final destination up north, an area we haven't seen in the series yet. Kimblee comes across as positively creepy here as he works within the system - but with style - and sets out to track him down so he can eliminate him once and for all. Scar himself doesn't get much time, we see more of May and her panda doing little things for the trip than anything else, but the change in the dynamic is palpable here as Scar is generally more subdued and thinking ahead more of what he wants to get done.
