#2 - The Shape of This Country

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Season 1 - Episode 35

After Olivier comes up with a plan to stop Sloth, Buccaneer forcefully recruits the Elrics and Falman for the plan. With everything in place, Olivier and her trio of tanks ram Sloth into the elevator which is sent down to the level with the exposed walkway. The confused Sloth walks out of the elevator and immediately gets fuel spilled onto him by Buccaneer's group and is pushed over the railings with a combined effort from Olivier's tank, Falman, and the Elrics. The fuel spilled onto Sloth is cold weather fuel that evaporates even in the middle of winter, and with blizzard conditions outside Sloth is quickly frozen. After freezing Sloth, Olivier orders Buccaneer to put the Elrics into the fort's holding cells so she can question them later. The next morning, the Elrics are thanked by several soldiers for helping during Sloth's invasion, but the soldiers still wouldn't let the Elrics out of their cell.
