"Fringe" fans are used to seeing the dynamic between our favorite characters shift suddenly and dramatically -- and while it's always fun to explore new versions of old friends, we've found ourselves missing that old banter between Peter (Joshua Jackson) and Walter (John Noble) this season.
"We had to fight to get the old dynamic back," Noble told Zap2it when we caught up with him at the opening of Warner Bros' Television Out Of The Box exhibit at the Paley Center in Beverly Hills. "As characters, and as people, because Josh and I love playing it."
Now that Peter knows he's been home this entire time and that Walter and Olivia are his Walter and Olivia, Jackson tells us that Peter will continue to grow more comfortable with his father. "So far as Peter's concerned, these are all his people now. All of the barriers between Peter and Walter should then be removed," Jackson says. "Even though Walter has to come out of his shell, still, a little bit, there's no reason for that father-son love to not be there. It's not the central portion of our story toward the end of the season, but he and I love doing it, and it's a good portion of the story."
"The payoff is really there at the end of the season," Noble says, promising a more familiar relationship between father and son. "You do see that again."
Speaking of fathers and sons -- Jackson promises that fans are about to see the fall-out from the revelation that Peter had a son. "You're about to find out," he teases, with a very sly look on his face. (Seriously, just watch the video below.) You won't want to miss tonight's new episode at 9 p.m. EST on FOX.
Fans are anxiously awaiting news as to whether "Fringe" will be returning after this year for Season 5. "There are a lot of warm and fuzzy feelings out there, between us and FOX," Noble says. "I know that the FOX executives love the show. It's just a matter of business, and it's very close, because we're an expensive show."
