LittleWing said...

Wow....just....O to the M to the G. I think you can't have spoilers here so that's all I'm gonna say. West Coast, get ready for one of the best Fringe rides EVER.

Epicness is an understatement.

aydee said...

So Olivia is able to control Peter and everyone loves her, but yet when Peter uses HIS Abilties to help Olivia, people tend to whine and trash Peter. Wonderful.

den said...

what was the name and artist of the opening song ? The melody is driving to a Fringe

Dave Thompson said...

Anyone else catch this?

What's the deal with Mr. X and the nanites?

pMaestro said...

Did anyone else think that the writers were a little not-too-subtle with the clue as to how Olivia will *not* die? Cortexiphan regenerates injuries as we saw with the lemon/pound cake (can't remember off the top of my head). And who's been dosed up to her neck (or more) in Cortexiphan? Who, I might add, is supposed to die in all time lines? I'm calling it now.

pMaestro said...

Good catch, Dave! And remember that Mr X was seen inside Olivia's mind while she was being occupied by William Bell who, surprise/surprise, designed the nanites ...

Matthew M said...

What no comments about Leonard Nimoy? There weren't any rumors of his return, no hints that he would be back, . How did they manage to film him without anyone spilling the beans. I think that whole Star Trek return was a misdirect so he could do Fringe without being noticed. What a great plan, worthy of William Bell and Walter Bishop!

Sam Weiss said...

wahhhh this is crazy,, cant wait til next episode... i think walter (possibly controlled by bell) shot olivia then september interfers., blocks the bullet thats why he has a gun shot on his chest.. :) and their real enemies are the OBSERVERS which invaded the universe in yr 2036

Ron said...

@ Den:
Opening song: instrumental version of Billy Idol's "Eyes Without a Face"

keith said...

Oh I'm sure fringe detoured our minds from bells return so they could blow them tonight

keith said...

Hey and by the way fringe its so painful to watch Walter get questioned like that after all he has done. Ahhhh!

Unknown said...

What happened to the intro??? They added another layer of the theme music when the hand appeared

SheHateMeBro said...

Could the timeline be changed again, so that the future we saw never happens?

O. McDonald said...

Struggled to find an observer in this episode. The best I could do was this http://i.imgur.com/HAEWx.jpg Can someone with higher definition verify for me?

Oberserver fringe brave new world

totaly looks like an observer,
but one thing i dont realy understand is why do wiliam bell focus on creating a new universe and filling it with shity creatures instead of figthing the observers. becouse thats why he is doing this rigth ? becouse he knows the observers are gona take over so he want to start from skratch... ?

sublime-surot said...

@Sam Weiss
That's actually good theory. It's always been hard for me to accept that it was the other observers who shot September. Then during the preview for next week we get the line "this was a future he didn't forsee" from Rebecca Mader". Although, why would Bell want to kill Olivia when she's his and Walter's best work? Gaaaah can't wait for next week!

Ron said...

Jessica Holt (the nurse being treated for the nanites)saying goodbye to Olivia:
"If you ever need help getting to the head of the line in an ER... "
This is for next week!

chillip said...

taking nurse holt from hot to cold sure seems to echo the white tulips scene from subject 13..."did you imagine that?"

just watched that scene again. it's just as good as it gets.

DONL33 said...

I LOVE THIS SHOW!!! 1 major mistake, I can't believe how everybody always gets this wrong! Anywhere in the continental US, if you go straight down thru the center of the earth, you end up in the Indian ocean. You do not end up in China or India. Since all of the cont US is above the equator, you must end up below. Even Alaska ends up in the ocean below Africa. Hawaii is the only place that hits land, it ends up in southern Africa

dee.baulch said...

DONL33...I agree with your statement, but, one thing you should consider is, in this case, the beam was being sent from satellites, to the "disco ball" (if I remember correctly)....it depends on where it/they were located... Would not the satellites be in a geosynchronous equitorial orbit for targeting purposes? If this was the case, then the outcome could be quite different than if the beam was directed from directly overhead.... (I'm no scientist, but makes sense to me).... Oh...and I'm with Sam Weiss on the September/Olivia bullet conjecture..... Cannot wait until FringeFriday :)

dee.baulch said...

I checked the gps coordinates of "Boston" - if you were to drill directly through the earth, you would come out about 1000kms south-west of Perth, Western Australia, in the Indian Ocean...... No-where near India.... Unfortunately they didn't do their homework on this one.... :(

Ron said...

Could Bell be "Alt-Bell" ?
I know Alt-Bell is supposed to be dead in car crash when he was a young man (so presumably in the 50s or 60s) and even the change of time line couldn't have change an event so far in the past.
But I think it's kind of strange seeing him acting a bad guy, plus, I don't know... the change of haircut, clothing style...
Anyway the car accident is fake (the one that killed "our" Bell), so why not the "alt" car crash rather the one Nina is speaking about?

I don't see Astrid or Olivia die tonight: Astrid is alive is the future and Olivia can't die before 9 months (maybe a little less) in order to give birth to Etta. Of course we have to assume that the timeline won't change again to make that statement (I'm pretty sure of that).

Can't wait for the season finale whatever happens

pMaestro said...

Booyah! Didn't I tell you that the lemon cake regeneration foreshadowed Olivia's? ;-)
