The Fullmetal Alchemist, Edward Elric, along with his brother Alphonse and the Briggs soldiers, manages to freeze Sloth before being sent to the brig, and all this was done so that Oliver can learn and can have more knowledge about the homunculus.
He can know more by talking to them down to the tunnel so that they can tell her without any fear of reprisals. While being there, Edward logically concluded that the tunnel is being used as a giant transmutation circle.

Kimblee and Raven arrive at Briggs soon after with Olivier tricking Raven into revealing the existence of an immortal army.
