Fringe Episode 313: Immortality

As the story shifts back to life “over there,” the absence of Colonel Broyles shifts the dynamic of the Fringe Team as they investigate a bioterrorist armed with an insect that has a taste for human flesh. Meanwhile, alternate Olivia is reunited with her beau, and Walternate remains determined to save his world but discovers there are certain lines he will not cross.

Discuss the episode here in the comments.

If she was in love with the father... Hmmm!!!

Jr. won't directly have anything to do with the device, I think. Nor was her getting pregnant part of some ultra cynical master plan. It was an accident. Which fits in to her and Walternate finding a little redemption in IMMORTALITY. And Walternate won't take any risks with children, much less his own grandchild. But he apparently will use Jr. to entice Peter to cross back over.

I don't see the pregnancy as being the biggest game changer since Peter's abduction. Unless it's her pregnancy that's causing our world to fall apart next week? I hope not. There could be a simpler more believable explanation for that. What would be the solution to a dangerous embryo of two worlds? Let's not go there.

Hate to say it, but it looks as if they are building to a Season 3 finale that could serve as a Series Finale. They have to walk a line between giving some closure to loyal fans and leaving things open to renewal, if not on FOX then elsewhere. Here's one way to do it.... because Peter obviously cares for both Olivias, the device he fires up will heal BOTH universes (still hate that silly device twist). I think he winds up on our side, but not WITH Olivia just yet, but it looks promising. Walternate is mollified with a grandchild, in place of a son who really no longer belongs over there.

The cliffhanger, if I were king, would be a final scene with a strange view of New York, that wasn't our side or the Altverse. But a third universe, call it Malverse, that appears darker and more malevolent. Something frightening flies at the screen, all flaps and fangs, which blacks out our view. "TO BE CONTINUED" pops up and fades out.

Season 4, if it happens (and they need a good teaser), would deal with the first two universes temporarily at peace and working together to defeat the Malverse. It could happen.

I agree that Olivia's pregnancy may not be the gamechanger -- the best candidate is the revelation that Weiss wrote all the "First People" books. It raises all sorts of questions about the books themselves, as well as how Nina got involved with him in the first place.

"It must be hard to be a father" That's what came to my mind when they found out there was some movement in Fauxolivia belly! The observer was right...

Please advise what the code decipher was for this episode. I decoded it as Romad, and I don't know what this means. Must have missed something!

Talking about immortality. What could maintain a good show with declining audience but with a faithful fan base of dying?

Isn't there ways of sustaining a TV show independently nowadays?

I was thinking to myself about it. If an expensive TV show like Fringe is threatened by the lack of audience, would it be possible to be funded by the faithful world wide fans by other means?

So let's say you have something from 4 to 5 million people paying to see watch the premiere of a new episode on-line or though a system like Netflix?

Would it be enough to give it an afterlife?
