Mark Watches ‘Fringe’ Liveblog: 6:02 am EST

As we descend to the depths of the final three Fringe episodes of season three, shit will get real, and none of us will be prepared. Tonight…oh, I’m not even going to give you the one word summary of this episode. It’s just too much! Join the Mark Watches community in liveblogging Fringe!

You know what?

….for tonight’s episode. Give it to me, Fringe.

Because we are all on the exact same ground this time around, our spoiler policy for these blogs will be completely different. Anything that has aired in the past is fair game for discussion. Anything that has not publicly aired WILL BE CONSIDERED A SPOILER. I know there are spoilers for “6:02 AM EST” floating around the ‘Net (WHICH I HAVE AVOIDED TYVM), so please, DO NOT POST THEM HERE. I know that this episode in particular has COMPLETE SPOILERS out there, so please be courteous to other viewers and keep them to yourself.

This liveblog will work in relative to when the episode airs for you. So, you may begin your livebloggy commenting down below when the episode starts. To avoid spoilers, I stick to the first page and comment away, and then go back afterwards to add any more.

AN EXTRA NOTE BECAUSE IT MUST BE SAID. I have avoided them, but Tumblr and other such communities are FULL OF SPOILERS FOR WHAT HAPPENS TO NIGHT. Thanks to Spoiler Cuts, I’ve not seen any of them, but I will ban you with the force of a thousand suns if you post any before the episode airs.

See you all tonight!

    I haven't seen any spoilers but spoilers of spoilers, if that makes any sense. Like… descriptions of the spoilers? I don't know.
    I might miss this liveblog, but I'll be blogging with the West Coast next week!

  2. Minish says:

    That gif never gets old.

  3. carma_bee says:

    Yay! 😀 I've only seen trailer clips and stuff like that, but I'm really excited, that's all I'll say.

  4. psycicflower says:

    I believe the real question about tonight's episode of Fringe is will Olivia continue to eat toast like a boss?

    I'm already loving the gif goodness that is Mark Watches. I wish I had one of my own to share. I wish I could join in the fun tonight, but alas, my parents are moving to Ecuador (tomorrow), and they will be upset if I don't pay attention to them. Unfortunately, they have not experienced the EPICNESS of Fringe.

  6. rabbitape says:

    Having dinner with my parents tonight, so I don't know if I'll make it back in time to watch the episode live, much less liveblog. (There's no wifi here! WTF?) I'll have to save my all-caps-iness for the review entry, I guess. Sigh.

  7. Exbestfriend says:

    So I had forgotten that today was Friday, but then realized that today wasn’t Doctor Who day, so it must still be Fringe day. I came to MarkWatches to make sure the liveblog post was up and the TOTES FREAKED OUT because I thought the title of the post was not the title of the episode, but when the episode had aired.

    I’m having a weird day. I don’t take mandatory vacations well. Someone please explain to me why Good Friday is a state holiday? I’d rather take Mardi Gras and Halloween TYVM.

  8. echinodermata says:

    Is the promo that aired last week considered spoilery? Cause here's a cool graphic based on it. I guess I won't embed, just in case.

  12. psycicflower says:

    SAM WEISS! Or drama teacher in Community as I only coped the other week.

  13. Hotaru_hime says:

    Alt!Brandon creeps me out.
    Also, Faraday? Wasn't he a character in a previous season?

  14. Hotaru_hime says:

    They used the baby to activate the machine!!!

  15. Hotaru_hime says:

    Oppenheimer… I guess WW2 happened. I wonder to what extent.
    Does Walternate feel some regret?

  16. monkeybutter says:

    So it was Walternate who said it!

  17. monkeybutter says:


  18. psycicflower says:

    Could they not also use some of Walter's chromosomes to make the profile more complete? Obviously it'd be hit and miss but it couldn't hurt.

    • monkeybutter says:

      Not really, because there's chromosomal crossover, and Walternate's DNA might not make up a significant part of what they're missing. It might make it a little clearer, though. Maybe that's what they'll do!

      • fey says:

        Well, there's crossover with Olivia's DNA in the baby's DNA too. Which is why simply removing a few chromosomes wouldn't get them exactly half Peter's DNA. But that's getting a bit complicated for a show where most of anything medical is best not examined too closely, or really at all, beyond: OH; MAGICAL! (I do imagine that, especially as science is more advanced over there, that they'd be able to tell which DNA is from Peter, so that works out, even if it's not shown on screen.)

        You're right though, there's simply no telling which parts of Walters DNA would have been passed on to Peter, but all paternal DNA (and all non-Oliva DNA) in the baby must be from him.

        What surprised me, is that they have no DNA sample of Peter. He was there for a bit! It shouldn't have been too hard to get SOMETHING, if they don't have anything left from when he was a boy (baby teeth?).

        • monkeybutter says:

          Thanks 🙂 You're right about everything! My brain wasn't fully functional last night, but I also thought it was really weird that they didn't have any Peter DNA. What about his hairbrush? I guess it would be too much to hope for that Peter's blood spot screening card wasn't destroyed before he disappeared.

  19. Hotaru_hime says:

    Sheep! It's what makes us superior to the Alt!verse.
    Also, wow, sun is up real early at 6am there.

    • fey says:

      Well, the farther north and south you go, the longer the days get in the summer (and the shorter in winter). Where I live it's light at 6 am too right now (and dark a bit after 8 pm). Probably the show DID show the sun a bit high, that's filming times for you. I have no idea what the right hight of the sun would have been, but I don't think the sun rises earlier in the altverse, because that would imply a different tilt of the earth's axis, which should have consequences we haven't seen (I think).

  20. Hotaru_hime says:


  21. psycicflower says:

    Is this how alt!verses sheep died?

  22. monkeybutter says:

    oh hell no swarms of locusts

  23. Hotaru_hime says:


  24. psycicflower says:

    Interesting, the credits are completely blue. Mainly our side then?

  25. Hotaru_hime says:

    Oooh, Green Lantern sneak peek.
    God, I really want this movie not to suck.

  26. exbestfriend says:

    Walternate makes me sad. He is just so evil. Walter from our world would find another way, will find another way.

  27. psycicflower says:

    BOWLING ALLY! I see Sam's gotten a hair cut.

  28. Hotaru_hime says:


  29. Hotaru_hime says:

    What does this meaaaaaaaaaaaaan?

  30. Hotaru_hime says:

    Awww, she looks so happy~
    Is that bb Peter?

  31. carma_bee says:

    Aw they're so cute

  32. psycicflower says:

    Awwww. This cuteness and happiness obviously won't last for long given the show's track record.

  33. Hotaru_hime says:

    Doesn't even know he's naked, huh?

  34. monkeybutter says:

    HAHA naked Walter!

  35. monkeybutter says:

    Oh, of course, Tuesday.

  36. Hotaru_hime says:

    Naked Tuesday cooking…
    These two are so cute!! I don't want this ship to end!!

  37. psycicflower says:

    Too precious for this world!!!

  38. monkeybutter says:

    Poor sheep.

  39. Hotaru_hime says:

    Oh God, that IS how the Altverse lost its sheep!!

  40. monkeybutter says:

    It's on!!

  41. Hotaru_hime says:

    Ugh, this product placement, I can't even.

  42. monkeybutter says:

    Why hello there Sprint product placement.

  43. psycicflower says:

    I believe the phrase is 'shit just got real'

  44. Hotaru_hime says:

    Maybe having the machine on both sides makes everything worse?


  45. exbestfriend says:

    It is on like Donkey Kong.

  46. bookling says:

    Ahhhh, what is going on? THE MACHINE IS ON.

    • psycicflower says:

      Olivia and Peter were adorable in bed together, Walter was naked and Walternate and alt!Brandon are using Fauxlivia's baby blood from the other episode to get some of Peter's chromosomes to use the machine.

  47. Thiamalonee says:

    Was not expecting this before the finale! Was I the only one not expecting this??!

  48. exbestfriend says:

    IDEK. I am more than skeptical about the plot/costume/any part that isn't Ryan Reynolds' face.

  49. Hotaru_hime says:

    Peter knows?! SUSPECTS?!!?
    Holy shit.

  50. Hotaru_hime says:

    What is the name of the baby?!?!

  51. psycicflower says:

    Awww bless. Fauxliivia and baby.

  52. Hotaru_hime says:

    Awwww, cute baby… feelings are so conflicted.

  53. monkeybutter says:

    If the machine is activated on both sides, does that mean that both sides can be destroyed?

  54. monkeybutter says:

    Lincoln, you are really hot.

  55. psycicflower says:

    The event is obviously the machine. Come one alt!team, question Walternate.

  56. Hotaru_hime says:

    False alarm my ass, you know what you're doing.
    Fauxlivia has new feelings.

  57. katherinemh says:


  58. monkeybutter says:

    Can't fool Fauxlivia!

  59. Hotaru_hime says:

    Walternate is displeased with your questioning.

  60. monkeybutter says:

    She's still concerned about Peter 🙁

  61. Thiamalonee says:

    Olivia is going to have to go back over there to turn off the machine, and Altivia will help her to save Peter. Calling it.

  62. Hotaru_hime says:

    "I chose to give up my son so that you could keep yours."
    So powerful.


  63. psycicflower says:

    Ooo Fauxlivia not seeming happy with Walternate's actions. And Walternate plays emotional manipulation of new mother. This should be fun.

  64. aurelia says:


  65. Hotaru_hime says:

    You can warn some people, but you can only save so many with 15 minutes.
    Ohhhh, Peter…

  66. Thiamalonee says:

    What? What Way??

  67. psycicflower says:

    Don't you dare convince Walter to let you in the machine Peter. It ended badly last time you were even near it!

  68. monkeybutter says:

    Think Peter doesn't like seeing his parents drink?

    • Hotaru_hime says:

      His mom on this side drank and (presumably) became an alcoholic and then committed suicide when he was seventeen. Probably not too fond of the stuff.

      • monkeybutter says:

        Yeah, there was just a look on his face when Walter pulled out the flask that made me think of his mom.

  69. Hotaru_hime says:

    If a machine is calling out to you there are only bad things.
    I don't want you to die Peter!! Don't make Walter sad!

  70. monkeybutter says:

    Aw, he did figure it out 🙁 Poor Walter.

  71. psycicflower says:


  72. Hotaru_hime says:

    Awww, it's like they're close again, like in season 2 right before Peter found out he was really from the other universe.

  73. Hotaru_hime says:

    Sam Weiss is gone?

  74. monkeybutter says:


  75. monkeybutter says:

    Dammit Nina, you're supposed to be on top of things.

  76. Hotaru_hime says:

    Nina has been keeping secrets~ And now Olivia knows.

  77. monkeybutter says:

    Oh shit, Sam?

  78. psycicflower says:

    The First People, Sam Weiss. It's all coming together!

  79. Hotaru_hime says:

    Hunt for Sam Weiss… but we're not supposed to trust him!!

  80. Hotaru_hime says:

    Poor insignificant couple, you're gonna die

  81. monkeybutter says:

    Aurora Borealis!

  82. Hotaru_hime says:

    What is that?
    What are you writing? WHY IS IT A ZERO?!?!


  83. monkeybutter says:

    Calculus makes Sam sad…

  84. bookling says:

    The fuck was that?

    Also, has anyone been keeping up with the glyphs?

  85. psycicflower says:

    !!! Sam is using the Universe window/device/thingymebob!!!

  86. katherinemh says:

    Agent? That's the only five letter word I can think of that starts with AGE…

  87. aurelia says:

    Buh? Calculus?

  88. exbestfriend says:

    Did we know that Sam Weiss had one of those window things? Because I feel pretty surprised. Then again I was just surprised by The Fast and Furious 5 being a movie.

  89. Hotaru_hime says:

    Awww, Anna Torv with a baby makes me happy!

  90. Hotaru_hime says:

    Awww, Lincoln, you are so cute!!!

  91. katherinemh says:


  92. monkeybutter says:

    D'aww, they're dating.

  93. bookling says:

    Ahhh, Lincoln and Fauxlivia! SHIPPING IT SO HARD.

    I also ship Fauxlivia/Her Combat Boots. I love the way she swaggers around in them. Badass.

  94. psycicflower says:

    I love you Lincoln! Never change!

  95. Hotaru_hime says:

    What is she going to do? Is she going to our side?
    Poor Lincoln, losing the love of his life!

  96. monkeybutter says:

    safe = not in Walternate's hands.

  97. psycicflower says:


  98. Hotaru_hime says:

    What he really wants to do is SNOG THE HELL OUT OF YOU.

  99. Hotaru_hime says:

    She has a gun. Restrictions do not apply.
