The finale for doesn't mean just the end of Fringe but really the end of an phase in my life. Fringe has been there during the rockiest times of my life. I've grown up obsessing over a show that sadly remains unknown to most of the world. The final is part of a year of lasts that is certainly emotional. Excuse me, I need to get another Kleenex.

Fringe was, and still is a part of my life. I started studying chemistry and physics, because Fringe showed me how wonderful and mystical our world(s) is (are). The finale summed up the show in one last tremendous event. To be honest, when I saw Peter saying "I love you, Dad!", calling Walter Dad for the first time, really touched me, I even dropped a few tears. Simply put: THE BEST SHOW (for me at least) IN TELEVISION HISTORY!

The end of Fringe is still hard for me to believe. I've never been so invested in a show before or felt so connected to a group of characters. The finale wasn't exactly what I wanted it to be, but it was still a treat and I'm glad the series at least got a proper finale. My favorite part of the end must have been when Walter told Astrid that she had a beautiful name. Maybe now that it's over, more people will finally get into it. No one ever believes me when I cite it as my all time favorite show, worse still is some people think I'm saying "friends".

I wonder how the creators of this series felt as they finished up the show? Did they cry a few tears themselves as the edited and ended each scene? For me, I saw this show as a gift. A gift given to us by the behind the scenes FRINGE team and actors that put this whole thing together for our time. It reminds us of hope and what is really important in this life. It reminds us that we are all in charge of our own destiny's. It also encourages us to see the code in every detail of creation. It is the same old story of Love That Conquers All. What did the show FRINGE do for me? It gave me the symbol of a white tulip in my timeline to come and happy memories and lessons to be remembered beyond that. ''Να είσαι καλύτερος άνθρωπος από τον πατέρα σου''

Fringe finale changes my life. I couldn't have expected any better ending of my favorite series, which I consider to be the best series ever!It changed my life because it meant the end of a series i was in love with. I learned a lot of science and feelings through every season and now I will miss it so much!
About the finale...I loved every single scene with Donald, because I enjoyed so much to see the human side of September. I also loved every Walter's detail with Peter, Astrid, Gene and the floating bodies of the dead.
I enjoyed so much the last minutes when it develops an epic battle of Fringe Team vs The Observers, and how Windmark died.
Finally, I cried when Walter had to go, but I was happy as Peter and Olivia where a happy couple with their daughter.
The "Thank's for your support" letter was an excelent detail from the producers, as well as the white tulip.

It may sound like I am about to denigrate Fringe but read the entire comment and hear me out.

You know, Fringe could be annoying sometimes. Sometimes, especially in the first season, the writing was not good and the acting not much better. Sometimes, there were plot inconsistencies and scientific inaccuracies that even the wildest fringe science could not explain away. Sometimes, there was erasing Peter from the timeline.

But, most of the time, I do not care about those sometimes.

Fringe is like someone you love; you overlook the flaws to see all the good things about the person you love. It is a little weird to refer to a television show in that way, but Fringe is the only show I have ever formed an emotional attachment to. I cared about Walter, Peter, Olivia, Astrid, Broyles, Nina, Lincoln, and all the other characters (and some of their alternate versions) that populated the Fringe universes. I wanted them to all live happily ever after because the writers and actors did something amazing; they made me create an emotional bond with multiple versions of multiple fictional characters in multiple fictional universes in the past, present, and future.

It was something of a tortuous emotional bond, waiting all week (and during the summer) to know what was going to happen to these people (do not worry, I did not think about Fringe 24/7, I had plenty of ballgames, family events, work, etc. to think about). What would Walternate do to Olivia? Would she get back home to Peter? Would Peter survive the machine? Which universe would survive? Would Peter re-establish his timeline? Would the Observers be defeated?

I have followed many television shows, some long lived such as the X-Files, some painfully short like Awake, Firefly, and Pushing Daisies, and some that are critical acclaimed such as The Wire. But I have never cared about the characters nor waited for the next episode of any series like I have for five seasons of Fringe. All good things must end; Fringe had a good run of 100 episodes, ensuring syndication immortality. But, I wish this was not the end of the story for Fringe, because I can honestly say that I doubt any series will ever affect me the same way Fringe has.

To Jackson, Torv, Noble, Nicole, Reddick, Brown, and all the other great actors, as well as Wyman, Pinkner, Abrams, and all the writers and producers; hopefully you will all create and act in some great film and television in the future. But, maybe think about "getting the band back together" someday. After all, if those future scientists give Walter a lab in 2167, he will create a time machine faster than Gene the cow can moo.

Fringe has always been awesome, since “Pilot” from season 1. The writers and producers made an upgrade in every aspect of sci-fi and showed us how science matters with feelings and people. And it became a mythical show because of the good story and astonishing characters portrayed by excellent actors.

This finale was brilliant, I totally liked it, every single detail. The finale was a summary of all the series, showing the main fringe events and the human side of the characters, concluding with a happy ending with the sacrifice of a father who loved his son. It couldn’t have been more lovely.

Science, love, sacrifice and a damn good story is what Fringe means to me, and surely for many others who, like me, waited devotedly every thrusday/friday to come to watch the new episode.

Fringe isn't dead, it’s only its airing what’s over, but Fringe lives inside me, eternally.
