Mark Watches ‘Fringe’: S03E22 – The Day We Died

In the twenty-second (and final) episode of the third season of Fringe, Peter deals with the consequences of activating the doomsday device, where he finally learns what it does and how it came to exist. Intrigued? Then it’s time for Mark to watch Fringe.

So….how exactly do you talk about “The Day We Died”?

Much of what Fringe has become is about imagined worlds. There were hints of such things in season one, with season two focusing on how two parallel worlds could subtly affect each other. By the end of season two, and for the entirety of this season, the writers and showrunners of Fringe have given us one of the most detailed group of settings in modern television. Not content to merely elaborate on a world where fringe science is a real, tangible thing, they have given us a parallel world so delicately imagined that even the tiniest details provide us with a universe of insight.

With the full look at the Other Side” in “Over There, Part 1 & 2,” I was not of the belief that we’d return there much. It seemed so difficult to create a parallel universe and fill it with enough idiosyncrasies to make it believable enough that I wouldn’t feel insulted by the concept. They did this successfully in the season two finale, but how on earth would they be able to continue that throughout an entire season?

I think part of the joy of the third season of Fringe has been watching the people writing and running this show pull off what is, at face value, and impossible concept: A serialized show about parallel universes at war with each other. They’ve made the two sides easily identifiable, through title sequences and physical changes in character. They’ve created a story that is emotional, dense, complex, and challenging to watch, but we never feel like we’re in over our heads. They’ve done all of this after being moved to one of the worst time slots for FOX shows that aren’t The X-Files.

Damn it, I love Fringe.

In many ways, over the course of 45 minutes, there was a sense of finality to “The Day We Died.” (The title certainly helped that.) It’s been said a million different ways since yesterday, but had this show not been renewed for a fourth season, I believe we would have all witnessed the most mind-melting, frustrating, troll-ish series finale to ever air in history. COULD YOU EVEN IMAGINE. COULD YOU. Oh god, I would not have been able to handle it. As it is, having to wait four months to find out what the hell just happened is going to be unbearable.

So, how are all of YOU doing right about now? I ask this because an hour has passed between the last paragraph and me starting this one. I am still so flabbergasted by this episode that I don’t even know what to talk about and I played Borderlands for over an hour just to distract myself from this mostly-empty document. It’s not helping. I have been rendered completely wordless because of “The Day We Died.”

It’s time for me to rely on a list, because this is what I do:


  • Let’s start with 2026. What do I say often? I love time travel more than most things. This is a True Statement About Me That You Can Use To Infer Things About My Character. And in “The Day We Died,” we just got a healthy dose of some ontological-paradox-heavy time travel, not only with Peter’s consciousness traveling fifteen years in the future, but with the reveal about The First People. We’ll talk more about that later.
  • I love that the first person Peter comes into contact with that he recognizes is Astrid. For the record, I loved her hairstyle, but I’m biased because there probably isn’t a single thing Astrid could do to make me hate her or even express a passive dislike.
  • Ok, for a second, I thought Ella was someone pretending to be Olivia, since she was addressed as “Agent Dunham” and THAT IS A LIE, YOU ARE NOT MY OLIVIA. But, again, it’s a testament to how complete this world-building is: Even Ella has a part in it.
  • The first truly frightening thing about this future world is the confirmation that there are tears in the world, much like those that occurred on the other side. It’s the first chance for us to learn that the destruction of the Other Side did not lead to a happy future.
  • In a way, isn’t this future-world almost like a third universe? Like they did when they introduced the Other Side, the writers get a chance in “The Day We Died” to explore their characters in new emotional and visual ways. If I hadn’t been told that this was still Our Side, I would have proposed the theory that we were not seeing the future, but yet another parallel world. Either way you look at it, there’s still that genuine sensation that the writers have actually planned out what this entire world looks like. It feels expansive. It feels real.
  • Oh, I totally spotted you, H.G. Wells reference. No one named Moreau is a good guy!
  • The very concept of the End of Dayers is TERRIFYING. People who want to bring about the end of the world and who can actively do so? Bravo, Fringe, for bringing in this truly unsettling plot and only hinting at how horrible it could have been.
  • I see you, theater from the season two finale! That was a fantastic visual reference to the past. These men were not going to that theater to save anything; they were going there to destroy.
  • PUTTING WALTER IN PRISON FOR ACTIVATING THE DEVICE. GOOD GOD. Totally uncomfortable and unfair, but such a bold and fascinating choice by the writers.
  • WALTER IN PRISON IS SO DEPRESSING. It’s a “good” thing in the sense that it’s a fantastic parallel to the very beginning of the series, when Walter was in the hospital.
  • BROYLES IS A SENATOR! Which probably means that he can’t take LSD anymore, which TOTALLY ISN’T FAIR, but I like the idea that Broyles continued to move up in the world. Which brings me to my next point….
  • So much of the Future World (my official name for it) is about untold stories, left for our minds to imagine them. When did Walter have a stroke? When did Olivia decide she didn’t want to bring a child into the world? What happened to Broyles’ eye? Where were Nina Sharp and Brandon? The beauty of this all is that, given what happens at the end of the episode, we will probably never find out why any of these things popped up in the future. (You know, since Peter technically “erased” that future.)
  • Walter saying he is happy for Astrid because then she doesn’t have to take care of him anymore…..oh my god my creys. (This was the first of many moments that nearly made me sob.)
  • OLIVIA CAN CONTROL HER POWERS!!11!!!1!1!! Oh my god, what a fantastic development for her character. One of the few very good things about the future world, since most of it was A DISASTER.
  • I read a few posts online about how people were mad that Walternate wanted to destroy Our Side….UM THE DUDE TRAVELED THROUGH A WORMHOLE JUST BEFORE HIS SIDE WAS DESTROYED. He was the only living being from his side left alive. Why wouldn’t he want to exact revenge on this side? Given Walternate’s angry desire to do what he wanted, which was so different from our Walter, I found it to be incredibly in character for him to side with the End of Dayers to destroy our side.
  • Peter’s entire little speech to his dad…. “You’re my dad.” GOOD CHRIST. Brilliant writing and entirely tear-inducing. Wow. One of the best moments of season three.
  • Ok, just a really strange thought, but….Peter and Olivia’s house is really nice???? WHY ARE THESE THINGS THAT I THINK ABOUT?
  • Reidan Lake. Good god. I’d say that, as a whole, I watched the entirety of “The Day We Died” with a rapt attention on the screen, sitting on the edge of my couch, my phone silent so that I’d have no interruptions, desperate to catch every word and nuance of this finale. Aside from the final moments, I’d say the entire scene inside the house on Reidan Lake was the most electrifying and tense thing this show has done in all three years since it’s inception. It’s a cliche statement to make, but this is exactly what it felt like: I was hanging on to every word.
  • I am now acutely aware that there are at least two Fringe-watching households in my apartment building and one across the street, because at the exact moment that Peter reaches forward to discover that Walternate is a hologram, myself and at least three other people screamed in horror at our television sets. My heart rate instantly shot through the roof because that was one of the most YOU ARE NOT PREPARED twists EVER.
  • I know that each one of you who were also unspoiled going into this episode were then equally as mind-fucked when Olivia woke up from the flash in Central Park and was then SHOT IN THE HEAD BY WALTERNATE. Surely, she’s not really dead, right? They can’t kill off the lead character, right?
  • First scene after commercial: OLIVIA’S HEARTBREAKING FUNERAL. THEY ACTUALLY DID IT. THEY KILLED OLIVIA. (See? Unbelievable sense of finality to the whole story.)
  • Olivia got a funeral pyre. Omg that is how I want to be buried.
  • John Noble, Anna Torv, and Joshua Jackson all deserve an Emmy nomination for this show in general, but this finale in particular showed all three of them pulling off some of the most difficult scenes they’ve ever had to film.
  • On that note, the moment I finally started crying was when Peter was crying in front of his refrigerator, staring at Amanda’s drawing. Nope, Peter, please don’t cry ever. It is one of the worst things to watch over. (Not quite as bad as Hurley crying, but still. STILL.)
  • I LOVE TIME TRAVEL. Bless you, Akiva Goldsman, for using the concept of ontological paradoxes. I’m now entirely used to them because of LOST and Doctor Who and I sort of wish every show had them forever and ever because they are beautiful and nothing hurts. Now I need to go back and re-watch so much of season three with the knowledge that Walter sent the device back in time billions of years through a wormhole. So that means Astrid or Walter or Peter or someone made those drawings and wrote that book and holy god that is such an amazing plot twist that I never even considered. Though…how does Sam Weiss play into this?
  • Fauxlivia is a never-ending badass. “They outsmarted you, didn’t they?” God, she is so nonchalant about her entire universe being destroyed.
  • Let us finally discuss what we have needed to discuss this entire time.



We don’t know if they’re fully merged or if, like he said, he’s used Liberty Island alone to manage the two of them. Either way, I never once considered that this was a thing that could occur. To say this was unexpected is an understatement. PLOT TWIST OF THE CENTURY and one BRILLIANT way to lead into season four: how will these two universes get along??? I mean, did you SEE the way they eyed each other? WALTER VS WALTERNATE IN THE RING, September 2011.

When Peter popped out of existence, I knew something was wrong, but could also not have guessed that this is what the Observers were talking about this whole time. He served his purpose, so everyone forgot him???!?!!?! HOW DOES THIS MAKE ANY SENSE oh my god my heart. WHAT HAPPENS TO FAUXLIVIA’S BABY


  • What.

Ok, maybe in the distant future I’ll be able to find something I disliked about “The Day We Died,” but as it stands, that was one of the most exciting and entertaining season finales I have ever watched. What a brilliant, frustrating, and mind-blowing thing to experience.


I’ll resume liveblogging and reviewing the show then, but I just want to thank the small group who participates in the liveblogs and comments on my reviews. I wish it was larger, but I do have a lot of fun with a much more manageable crowd. Thanks for the partying and the wonderful insight!

  1. ObservantChild says:

    My wife said she would stop watching if Joshua Jackson left the show. And rather then be jealous I kind of agreed with her. Does this constitute a "Man-Crush"?

  2. J. says:

    I have been waiting for this all day and it felt interminable. HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO MAKE IT UNTIL SEPTEMBER?????
    Astrid, take the wheel.
    (No, but seriously. Thank you for doing these. None of my friends watch so it's nice to have a place to come to spaz out.)

  3. NB2000 says:

    So, how are all of YOU doing right about now?

    It's been roughly half a day since I watched it and MY BRAIN HAS NOT RECOVERED! No seriously I'm still trying to piece it all together. (I'm also somewhat half-asleep right now so none of this will make sense)

    If I'm brutally honest…I'm not sure how much I like the future scenes. They were very well done, it was interesting to see what could happen to the characters and how their lives would be impacted by everything, so I liked them on that level (it took me a second to catch that the credits were different again and then I was amused by the new words). I just can't escape the feeling of…well, why? If, as I currently follow it, that timeline has been erased by Peter's actions then none of that is going to happen. I still have faith in the Fringe writers though, I'm willing to trust that they aren't just going to throw this scenario at us and then never mention it again. I have no idea HOW they'll do this but I'm sure they can manage it.
    (cut for length)

    • NB2000 says:

      I surprised myself by not being upset when Walternate shot Olivia, I'm really not sure why though. I think I was just in denial that they'd actually go there. I mean, it's OLIVIA FUCKING DUNHAM! they wouldn't kill off the leading lady. It did start to sink in during the funeral scenes (I too want my funeral to be like that. I've often said I don't to be cremated but if I get to go out Viking style in a ceremony as beautiful as that then I take it back) at which point the "Oh hell no, I'm not watching if you killed Olivia!" reaction kicked in.

      He served his purpose, so everyone forgot him???!?!!?! HOW DOES THIS MAKE ANY SENSE oh my god my heart. WHAT HAPPENS TO FAUXLIVIA’S BABY

      I was talking it over with a friend who also watches the show who brought up the same point about Fauxlivia's baby and I sarted to realise: does ANY of the series make sense without Peter? If he's not there then Walter doesn't cross over that first time which means that…yeah NOTHING makes sense without that happening. Yeah that thing about trusting the writers is coming up again because I seriously cannot put that together in my head.

      As sad as I am that the season is over, I cannot begin to tell you how relieved I am that I no longer have to juggle this show and Doctor Who (I've given up on livestreaming them so I don't see them until Saturday afternoon at the earliest). These last three Saturdays have really put my brain through the wringer trying to work out WTF IS GOING ON with these shows at roughly the same time. I'm going to spend the time until Fox announces their Fall schedule hoping that they move it from Fridays (which they won't do).

    • unicornseatrainbows says:

      The way I take it is, Peter had to see this future and the consequences of destroying either of the universes in order to know that the two rely on one another, and create a bridge connecting the two so that they can begin to work together, saving both universes. This was his purpose, according to the observers. But when Future Walter gives him the knowledge he needs, he says there may be consequences. The consequence is that Peter no longer exists after fulfilling his purpose. So yeah, this future we saw in the finale has already been prevented, but I'm guessing, once somebody figure's out Peter existed, they will have to change the course again making SEASON FOUR THE TIME TRAVELING SEASON! UNF.

  4. unicornseatrainbows says:

    This is me since last night, and probably until September:
    <img src="; />

    Just. Wow. Shocking, thought-provoking, and brilliant. I love you, Fringe.

    Two things. JH Wyman said during the live tweet last night that "If there is no Peter…there is no Baby Henry." OLIVIA DUNHAM SQUARED TO SAVE THE WORLD!!! Also, I think Walter was imprisoned for starting the rift between the two universes in 1985. Peter is technically the one who destroyed the other universe, but did it in self-defense of our world.

    • Hotaru_hime says:

      JH Wyman said that? So what does that mean? Does that mean that there is no longer Baby Henry or that because there is Baby Henry Peter still exists?

      • unicornseatrainbows says:

        I know, right? I guess it means WHILE Peter is not existing, Henry Nugget isn't either. Josh Jackson still has a contract for season 4 though.
        Whether that means both Peters died when they were young, whatever, perhaps the Olivias will be more likely to team up without their awkward Peter past. Walter and Walternate seem to still blame each other for the damage caused to their worlds, but I would infer that now something else aside from Peter is making them antagonistic toward each other.

    • aurelia says:

      Wyman's tweet made me wonder if Lincoln suddenly wondered why he was at Olivia's mother's house.

    • aurelia says:

      And will shirtless Frank come back?

  5. echinodermata says:

    I don't comment too much on Fringe posts, just cause it's harder for me to really know what to say about things I don't know any resolution to. Which is why I love knowing about all the books and shows in advance of the reviews on this blog (can't. wait. for. buffy). I love knowing how things piece together in advance, while watching someone slowly seeing it come together for the first time.

    That's a convoluted way of saying that I don't even know what to say other than I was impressed by this episode. I wasn't actually that blown away by Peter bringing the two universes together, to be honest – I hadn't predicted in advance that would happen, but it wasn't a shocker. HOWEVER, the observers and then Peter disappearing? Holy fuck. Fringe is Very Good at giving a great season finale twist in the last 5 or so minutes of the show. Every. Damn. Time. Good job, writers.

    More of a side note: one thing that I think I'm good at, though, is waiting for mysteries to unwind. When it comes to entertainment, at least, I'm pretty content to just let it flow – I look forward to new installments, but I guess I'm kinda desensitized to waiting. To some extent, I even enjoy waiting a while – I like letting the anticipation build. And a couple months is nothing compared to things like years between HP, a year between each LotR movie, and the wait for certain movie sequels to be written and shot (looking at you, Star Trek). So bring on the hiatus; just means more fun when the new season starts.

  6. knut_knut says:

    I have no idea what to say about this finale other than TIME MOVES TOO SLOWLY WHY ISN'T IT TIME FOR SEASON 4 YET?? I spent today wandering about like a zombie because of this show. Mind is blown

  7. __Jen__ says:

    My reactions were your reactions, Mark. SUCH AN AWESOME FINALE. I am really excited to see how this will all play out. I love that this show is so ballsy with it's plot choices and still stays true to the characters.

    Since I can't really come up with more to say that hasn't already been said, here are some links!

    Here's a nice interview with the showrunners:
    I think that our approach to this show is that we’re in love with the characters. We’re most interested in the character journeys, and using all of the stories as different means of exploring the existential questions and themes that are embodied by our characters. We say all the time that in many ways, Fringe is a family drama masquerading as a science-fiction procedural. If Lost was a show about characters in search of redemption, our show is called Fringe because it’s about characters on the fringe of humanity, each in their own way, looking for a connection with each other. It just happens to be set against the backdrop of this sort of insane story about two interconnected worlds.

    Also, as I saw pointed out on another site, the lyrics to the piece playing at the opera (Henryk Górecki's 3rd Symphony) are kind of sadly fitting with this episode/show.….

    I love that all the little details have meaning in this show. The books that we see the characters read reveal things about them and the themes of the show, and other details are used to make each universe feel expansive and lived in. It's just great and so rewarding.

  8. shyfully says:


    (If anyone could make me a gif of Peter disappearing or Olivia being shot with those words on it, I WOULD LOVE YOU FOR ALL TIME)

  9. Thiamalonee says:

    Mark! You HAVE to read the Thursday Next books by Jasper Fforde! Ontological Paradoxes galore. I want to make a comment about this episode that pertains to how a situation was treated in those books, but I shan't out of the hope that you will one day read those books.

    Time Travel! Wordplay! Literary References! Genetically Engineered Dodos!

    • msosa01 says:

      I love those books and they'd be perfect for his Mark Reads!!! I got to meet jasper Fforde and he is just as awesome as his books

  10. What’s on filmed-in-Vancouver TV tonight? Series finale Smallville; S3 finale Fringe; Supernatural; Sanctuary + SGU repeat of Blockade

  11. lastyearswishes says:


    We don’t know if they’re fully merged or if, like he said, he’s used Liberty Island alone to manage the two of them.
    I don't think he merged them, per se. Didn't he say he created a bridge or something? I'm probably going to need to rewatch this episode a couple thousand more times lol.

    I would assume that since he technically never existed that his child wouldn't either. Never know on this show though!

    I'm so insanely torn up about Peter though, you don't even know. I was so distraught after I finished watching the episode last night that I just sat and stared at the wall for a good 20 minutes lol.

  12. VictoriaLeigh says:

    J.H. Wyman Said that 'If there is no Peter…there is no Baby Henry". THEREFORE, if there IS Baby Henry, then Peter still exists in some form and can be brought back.
    I have a lot of questions brought on by Peter's erasure from time, not questions of "How do these things work with out him?" but "What happened differently without him?". There had to be some new cause for Walter (or William Bell!) to cross universes and start the conflict with the other side. Was it simply scientific curiosity? And how did Nina loose her hand now? Or did she? How did Olivia get Walter out of the Mental Institution without Peter? Or was he even in there? Did Elizabeth still commit suicide? Was she alive to help Olivia? What cases were solved differently without Peter? Or did everything happen exactly the same, but the universe has wallpapered over it? I am so excited to find out!
    And here's a theory: What if Hallucination Peter from the beginning of the season is really Displaced From Time Peter? The only flaw in my brilliancy is that Olivia also hallucinated Walter, but Peter was the only one who spoke to her. I'm willing to bet we're going to get more of him, either way.

  13. psycicflower says:

    It's a whole calendar of Observers! was my first thought before the mindscrew that was their closing lines.

    I haven't really had enough time to put thoughts together outside of OMG TIME TRAVEL!!! but I'm really just curious as to how Peter disappearing works. Is it like Doctor Who where a person is completely erased from memory so their actions still happened, it's just no one will remember them? Or is he actually completely erased from existence in every sense of the word because then there would be a lot of explaining to do since Peter is such an integral part to the fight between the universes. I can't wait for series 4.

    Thank you Mark for doing the liveblogs and reviews. It's a lot of fun.

  14. Leslie says:

    I started watching Fringe and then stopped a couple of eps into the first season. Then when I saw you were reviewing Fringe, I thought, "Well, he usually has good taste" and gave it another go. AND NEVER LOOKED BACK. Finished 3 seasons in like 3 weeks, maybe? But now I regret catching up because there's 4 months between now and season 4!

    I knew there was going to be a giant reset button. We weren't going to get that 2026 future. I was not expecting Peter to just disappear from existence and have everyone forget about him. I thought he'd died from the effort of merging the universe and not cease to exist. Oh, Observers, we need to know more about you and your plans!

  15. I am now acutely aware that there are at least two Fringe-watching households in my apartment building and one across the street, because at the exact moment that Peter reaches forward to discover that Walternate is a hologram, myself and at least three other people screamed in horror at our television sets. My heart rate instantly shot through the roof because that was one of the most YOU ARE NOT PREPARED twists EVER.
    A) That is awesome.
    B) I was wondering whether Walter had just been sitting in that chair for hours and hours waiting for Peter to show up. And then when it turned out he WASN'T EVEN THERE, it made more sense! Because he probably just waited for some sort of signal to tell him Peter was in the house and then he set up the hologram and sat down dramatically.

  16. medea says:

    What a finale…. I guess that the purpose in season 4 will be to try and remember Peter and bring him back? Maybe he's the glue that holds things together? I hope it is an issue about them not remembering him rather than him not existing. I hope so!

  17. cjazzle says:

    its during these kinds of days, following the season finale's of trippy shows like Fringe and Lost and BSG, etc, that i have to physically force myself to not think about what i just saw, but more especially try and speculate what might happen next. you stopped during your review and played Borderlands for a while to get your mind off it, and that's basically what i'll be doing for the next week. cause in the end, there's nothing more disappointing than creating a story in your head of what you're SURE is gonna happen in september, and then it turns out to be TOTALLY different, and its not so much disappointment i guess, but stupidity that you would even TRY and guess what happens next, much less assume you're anywhere close, because THATS how good these writers are. somehow they go where nobody would ever expect but they do so in a way that is consistent with the universe they've created and in such a way that is not cliche or trying too hard to be revolutionary or better than the last. i mean, it IS better than the last, but its not like grey's anatomy where in order to one up their epic cruise ship disaster they turn the tables on their own and murder like a gagillion doctors. or transformers 2 where there was WAYYYY too much going on and it was just confusing and overstimulation. i apologize if any of you reading like those two things, i do still watch greys anatomy, but i've learned to take it all with a grain of salt.

    i digress, FRINGE FUCKING ROCKS!!

  18. sabra_n says:

    Let me speak of a side subject that's not terribly urgent!

    One of my favorite things about this episode is that it neatly got rid of the idea of the First People as some prescient ancient-supercivilization and I am so grateful for that. It brings the motor of the story back to our characters rather than some mysterious Rambaldi with no discernible motivations, and that's a really good thing.

    On the other hand, it does make the saga of the Weiss family a little sad. They've spent generations digging up artifacts that Walter, Astrid, and Ella sent through a wormhole? Hee.

    Anyway, I hope that the show continues to stick with its preference for character and story over myth for its own sake. Oh man, it's going to be ages until September. (Speaking of which – there were exactly twelve Observers on Liberty Island at the end, no? Yikes.)

  19. Kit says:

    Has anyone commented in OLIVIA WEARING COLOR? That was the biggest thing that struck me about the Future….

    • monkeybutter says:

      Good catch!

    • sabra_n says:

      And high heels! That part I didn't like so much; I always appreciate Olivia's eminently sensibly taste in footwear. But still, it was a quick way of showing how she'd….loosened up? Or at least thrown off some of the cortexiphan trial conditioning in her mind.

      The only other time I remember seeing Olivia wear color is in the flashback to her first date with John Scott, actually – IIRC, she was wearing a bright green dress.

    • msosa01 says:

      I was shocked to see her legs!!! I lost it when I saw she was wearing a skirt… I turned to my friend, who doesn't really follow the show, and told him how I was freaking out because our Olivia only wears pant suits, he didn't get what a big difference it was, but it was nice to see the change in her… she was smiling more and overall she just seemed much more comfortable with herself and content with her life. It was yet another character that Ana Torv had to play in which she succeeded immensely. I still can't believe how good she's gotten considering that I thought she was pretty bad when the show began, can they give her an Emmy already?

    • Thiamalonee says:

      I'm doing a rewatch of season 1, and in the episode where Olivia meets Nick Lane, "Bad Dreams", Nick makes the comment that he did what he was told "wore the blacks and greys, blended in." I never noticed that before! Olivia's style choices were programmed by Walter and Bell! The color in her wardrobe, in my opinion, indicates that she actually is free of Jacksonville.

  20. Hotaru_hime says:

    So having stewed over this for a couple days, I've come to the conclusion that I have no idea what the fuck is going to happen.
    Pretty much I think everything will be hinged on Baby Henry existing or not… and if he doesn't will the two Olivia's express as much vitriol towards each other if Peter never existed? I wonder…
    But yeah, echoing the "SEPTEMBER IS TOO FAR AWAY!" sentiment. I don't know how I'm going to spend four months in suspense like this.

    • Thiamalonee says:

      But even if there was no PeterAngst, Olivia was still abducted, imprisoned, brainwashed, and nearly had her brain taken out, while Altivia spied on Team Green Liberty. There will still be vitrol.

  21. monkeybutter says:

    How am I doing right now? Hmm, still confused about Fringe. I feel like my reaction to the past three of hour episodes is just WHAT IS GOING ON. I like mystery, but I really want them to work towards an answer for everything they've set up, especially at the end of the season. Like, what are the implications of Peter's disappearance? He's been the motivation for all of the universe tearing, so if he doesn't, why has all of this happens? What happens to Walter and Olivia's characters and their development over the years. Things should change. Like I said, I like complexity, but I want there to be a point to all of this in season 4. Please.

    I really enjoyed the episode as it went on. I figured that the universes would merge, but not that Peter would do it deliberately (and then blip out of existence). I do like that twist, though. It gives us a chance to see how the Walters and Olivias get along without Peter mediating or being the center of attention. It's no longer which universe Peter chooses, but what the other main characters do. Lots of fun character development time! I also can't wait to see what they do with the new element of time travel.

    There's one other thing I wanted to mention. Olivia was killed in the future, but it was by Walternate, not the man in her picture. So that plot line is still lurking, in spite of the big undo we got for Olivia in the finale. So! Season 4 seems to have a lot in store. I just have no idea what is going to happen!

      I think it's reasonable to assume that Walter and William would still have developed the technology and curiosity to cross universes, even if Peter dying wasn't the motivation. But I agree with you, I hope and assume there is more of a point to this than just seeing what things would have been like without Peter.
      But in the mean time, I'M LOOKIN' AT YOU, LINCOLN LEE!

    My brain exploded!!!!!!!!!!! So many thoughts and going through it at once that I simply can't process this amount of awesomeness and freaking out-ness…..
    I think it's only Liberty Island that meshed because of what Peter said about all the holes and soft spots leading there, which, what the hell does that mean, but ok. The biggest question about that is, if they're not all meshed, then how are they going to get back to their respective worlds to fix things… so I'm hoping that the worlds are meshed because, how awesome would it be to have Fauxlivia/Olivia and Walternate/Walter interaction every episode!!!!
    The biggest problem is obviously Peter being erased from existence… Can't deal without Joshua Jackson on this show. I'm really hoping that somehow Olivia will still remember him despite everything like she did when they were brainwashing her to be Fauxlivia. The biggest issue I have with this is what happens to Fauxlivia's baby? Does he seize to exist since Peter wasn't there to make him?? Are they going to think that Link is the father and allow Link/Fauxlivia's relationship to develop? Oh it's just too much… This is worse than any Lost or Alias finale

  63. Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

  96. Have you ever considered creating an e-book or guest authoring on other sites? I have a blog based on the same theme if you’re interested.

    Well I definitely loved learning this. This particular subject procured by you is extremely efficient with regard to accurate planning.

  99. Wonderful article, thank you for discussing the data. It’s not all too often that you study an article in which the poster knows what they are running a blog about. Sentence structure and punctuational tend to be spot on as well, just difficulty I appeared to have had been bringing up the site, seemed sluggish. Looks like other site visitors had the same difficulty?
