Ed and Al decide to go to the town of Dublith to visit their alchemy teacher, Izumi Curtis, to ask her for information about the Philosopher's Stone. They agree to take Winry with them when she notices that Rush Valley, a town best known for its automail shops, is on the way to Dublith. King Bradley appears and warns the Elrics to be careful around the military, and he then hops out of a window to evade his subordinates. Hughes investigates the problems in Lior, The Fifth Laboratory, and the war in Ishbal. He discovers a connection, but is then attacked by Lust. He escapes her and tries to telephone Mustang with his information at a public phonebooth, only to be gunned down by Envy disguised as Maria Ross, and then as his wife Gracia. Hughes is posthumously promoted to the rank of Brigadier General. Mustang investigates Hughes' murder, and concludes via Armstrong that a high-ranked member of the military may be responsible for the command of Hughes' death.
