After Cornello's plan had been exposed and with her hope shattered, Rosé was forced to start over and persevere through hard times when the military intervened in Lior. Rosé was imprisoned by the military. When she is next shown, she is free and has a child. It is unknown how she got it, though it is implied that she was raped while in military custody. Scar uses her as the symbol of hope for the people of Lior, referred to as the Holy Mother. Later, seeing Edward paralyzed at the sight of Sloth, Rosé gets her voice back and uses what he told her before to snap him out of it. She became targeted as Dante's next vessel with the new Philosopher's Stone. Dante hypnotized Rosé, and her baby was used by Dante to open the Gate. While she's kept with Dante in the underground city, Edward finds her dancing alone in the ballroom under the trance. While the two of them are dancing, Rose tells Edward that she had been waiting for him. She then tells Ed that she loves him. Edward blushes and pushes her away, asking if she knows what she's saying and that they're "just friends". It is unclear if Rose said it under Dante's "hypnosis" or genuinely loves him. (In the Japanese dialogue, Rosé doesn't tell Ed that she loves him. Although, it is somewhat implied she might say it and Edward pushes her away and asks if Al was brought there.)
Edward's death breaks her trance. At the end of the anime, Rosé and her child appear to have moved to Risembool, living happily with Winry and Pinako.
