Fringe Episode 218: The Man from the Other Side

      Email Post       4/22/2010 08:20:00 PM      

When two teenagers on a date turn up “dead” at an abandoned warehouse with the three puncture wounds to the soft palate – a trademark of the shape-shifters – the Fringe team investigates the evidence as well as the motives of mastermind Newton. Upon discovering a shape-shifting embryo, Walter returns to the lab to conduct further analysis, and Olivia and Peter head to Massive Dynamic for answers. Meanwhile, Peter reveals a family secret to Olivia as Walter struggles to recall what Newton knows about “building a door”.

I've had this theory since we saw Peter's grave in season one, but I think it's finally confirmed in tonight's episode. The whole force behind the attack from the alternate universe, the leader and master mind, is Walternate. He's mad that his son was stolen, and he's coming for revenge.

I agree. They made the mysterious man on the bridge look like Bell, but I think it was actually Walternate.

I totally agree that it was Walternate. The Wife-ernate? encountered Walter who said he was taking Peter-nate to be cured. When Walternate came home sans Peter and knowing he didn't come to take Peter to be cured would've been something Walternate would've investigated full force to get his son back.

Amazing episode, and Olivia Dunham was once again so awesome. The way she realized quickly the cop was a shapeshifter and BLAMO!! Direct hit, and then the gunfight. Wow. Way to go Dunham!!

And the preview for next week with the WonderBread dotted Gene the cow? hahahaha. Awesome.

The only thing that kinda pulled me out of the story was "how is the bank dude going to keep that hole in the floor unnoticed and uninterrupted"? LOL But it's scifi and I am more willing to cut the writer some slack because really, is anything that happens in scifi 100% logical/realistic? LOL.

Not to harp or be a dick about continuity but I have to wonder how Newton was able to bring MFTOS from the scene. Newton would have had to run from the bank of the river, up the bridge, grab MFTOS, bring him back and get him into the car, load up the equipment- all in front of Olivia and Feds. There's a beat missing there. Know what I mean?

I have thought about Walternate being behind it all for sometime now as well. I believe this episode confirmed this theory. The shifter told Walter sorry as he was dying which leads me to believe that he was saying sorry for bringing Walternate over to return Peter to where he belongs. The man on the bridge looked very much like Walter to me as well. I believe that William Bell has been in the alternate universe working to try and stop Walternate.

Did anyone else notice the license plates on Olivia and Broyles' cop cars? One said 1R2D21 and I'm pretty sure the other said 13PO1, but there's no screencap of that one. I'm not a huge Star Wars fan or anything, but I think that's a pretty big reference.

what this licence plate means?

Continuing with the idea that the man on the bridge was walter, if you look at the guy that newton is talking to at the end, he has a nose like walter, and his hand looks like an old persons hand. It might be walter. (that's if the guy on the bridge is the guy that newton was speaking to at the end)

I agree.. It is definitely Walternate!

kindof off topic from the episode but has anyone else noticed that inthe very end when the symbol of the apple comes up the inside where the "seeds" are looks like fetuses? i kinda noticed that and went back and looked again, just want to see what everyone else thinks

Quick question: Does anyone else find it interesting that they don't show Olivia view of Peter with the glimmer any more disappointing? I mean it was a little distracting, but still, can she still see the glow or not?!?

To Serenity- yeah the seeds on the apple glymph definitely look like fetuses. Maybe you could think of the apple as both dimensions. Its almost symetrical but not quite, and it is still a whole apple(not divided). Maybe the 2 seeds symbolize how each of us has an alternate on another side. Now-going really deep-An apple has more than 2 seeds...meaning more dimensions. Just something to think about.

Can't wait for Season 3!
