Mark Watches ‘Fringe’ Liveblog: One Night in October

Ah, I am quite satisfied with life because Fringe is back on our television sets. Did you know that ratings went up in the best demographic and this is wonderful and exciting? Let’s help keep this wondrous show on the air by liveblogging this week’s episode. OH, FRINGE, WHAT WONDERS DO YOU HIDE.

Screw having a social life. I’ll be plopped on my couch Friday night to watch this live. YOU SHOULD DO THE SAME! I will put the review up on Saturday afternoon as well. No waiting three days like last time. So let’s get to it!

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.

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

DO. NOT. POST. SPOILERS. This community is not the place for that. You have the rest of the fucking Internet. Go there.

    All the sadness, I'm never able to do a liveblog like this with y'all because I have no TV (local or cable/satellite). But who cares, SO EXCITED! Crossing my fingers that we will be seeing a "there" centric episode tonight.

    Yay! The preview they aired last week looked really promising for the kinds of Olivia moments I love!

    • rabbitape says:

      I went to the Fringe website to watch the promo for tonight, and there was a hilarious video titled "A sit down with Josh Jackson," which was just 20 seconds of an empty chair with his name on it.

      So excited to liveblog tonight! Assuming my jet lag lets me stay awake that long!

      • monkeybutter says:

        lol that's amazing. Does this mean that the Mighty Ducks movies never happened?! We've gotta get Peter back lest this tragedy continues!

        Have a safe trip, and i hope to see you in the liveblog!

        • rabbitape says:

          My trip actually ended late Monday night, but I still haven't readjusted my sleep schedule (it was 12 hours off), so I keep falling asleep at 7pm and waking up at 2am. It's really annoying! But I'm not working this weekend, so I have a post-Fringe date with some ambien.

  3. Hotaru_hime says:

    I'm really looking forward to tonight's episode! Fuck a social life, it's time for Fringe!

  4. psycicflower says:

    Woot, woot, new Fringe! And I completely misread Fringies as Fringles. I must be hungry.

    Can someone please confirm for me whether it's on at 8 or 9 o'clock (assuming my internet can handle live streaming right now)

    Last Five Minutes of Hell's Kitchen's Thoughts:

    1) Gordon Ramsay has no business calling anyone ugly
    2) "Stay the course" gives me Bush flashbacks and makes my eye twitch.

    Now time for Fringe!

  9. psycicflower says:

    Argh tube in his head

  10. carma_bee says:

    omg what is he doing to this random man 🙁

  11. monkeybutter says:

    Whyyyy is there blue fluid going into his brain? I'm calling him Mr. Freeze.

  12. monkeybutter says:

    lol baked goods. MENTION THE VAGENDA, WALTER.

  13. knut_knut says:

    AHAHHA kennedy!

  14. psycicflower says:

    'Kennedy, help me' Ahahahahaha

  15. monkeybutter says:

    WE GOT OUR NAME! He's Kennedy!

  16. monkeybutter says:

    Aww, Astrid. Thank you for doing the shipping work for me.

  17. monkeybutter says:

    her type doesn't exist :c

  18. psycicflower says:

    'Do you ever think that maybe your type just doesn't exist' – 🙁

  19. knut_knut says:

    uuuuugh no drills in my head please

  20. akacj18 says:

    i just had a shipping REVELATION. you want more astrid? Astrid/Lincoln!!! i think it could totally work.

  21. monkeybutter says:

    Team-up! L?

  22. carma_bee says:

    I've never noticed the height difference between Olivia and Boyles until right now

  23. __Jen__ says:

    I am late, but yay! Fringe! I loved the use of Agnus Dei.

  24. knut_knut says:

    220 IQ???!!!

  25. psycicflower says:

    You wouldn't want to mix them up.

  26. psycicflower says:

    Colonel Broyles is alive 😀

  27. knut_knut says:

    that's super creepy, Fauxlivia

  28. __Jen__ says:

    Way to go Fauxlivia.

  29. psycicflower says:

    Lincoln! I hope they both meet!

  30. monkeybutter says:

    I like that the sedative's color is reminiscent of the titles

    • akacj18 says:

      also reminiscent of the color coding – the lights that flash over olivia and broyles in the security/entryway to the bridge room (whatever its called) – RED and GREEN.

      • akacj18 says:

        i am an idiot. red and BLUE universes. GAH. i'm just gonna go jump into a level 5 event or something. i hope the rest of the episode goes well!

  31. monkeybutter says:

    OMG LINCOLN. And Frank's still there!

  32. __Jen__ says:

    Booo Frank.

  33. monkeybutter says:

    Lee and Olivia tension! I love everything about this!

  34. knut_knut says:

    Other Lincoln's hair is much better this season!!

  35. monkeybutter says:


  36. psycicflower says:

    Well that mother and daughter are doomed.

  37. __Jen__ says:

    I don't know if anyone else got a Domino's commercial, but that artisan pizza didn't look half bad!

  38. monkeybutter says:

    Oh right, I think we have L- I, now. liars? links?

  39. psycicflower says:

    Dying laughing at the Glee ad, that was super dramatic.

  40. monkeybutter says:

    Oh, Walter. OMG the ad

  41. knut_knut says:

    lol this reminds me of that old Sony (?) cm in the 90s

  42. __Jen__ says:

    God I love the Requiem. I still sing along with the alto line whenever I hear it after singing it in college.

  43. __Jen__ says:

    Poor Walter. 🙁

  44. psycicflower says:

    Love you forever Astrid

  45. monkeybutter says:

    Just like you…

  46. monkeybutter says:

    I wonder if he'll make the connection

  47. __Jen__ says:

    Fauxlivia is so pretty right now.

  48. monkeybutter says:

    I want a jar of gelt…

  49. psycicflower says:

    Feeling a bit like I'm watching Criminal Minds. Quick, someone call the BAU!

  50. monkeybutter says:

    Oh, do not ever let your kid use a gas station bathroom. Even if you're there with them. That's gross.

  51. __Jen__ says:

    This guy is going to freak out when he gets it right? 🙁

  52. knut_knut says:

    please don't be a victim wall

  53. carma_bee says:

    Maybe not a good idea to leave photos lying around…

  54. monkeybutter says:

    He steals their happy memories?

  55. monkeybutter says:


  56. monkeybutter says:

    Oh yeah, go in there Olivia, that'll make things MUCH BETTER.

  57. monkeybutter says:

    omg Fauxlivia's face I love her

  58. fieldofwhitetulips says:

    Anyone see the glyph?

  59. akacj18 says:

    if it weren't for the amber (and his intelligence) they MIGHT have been able to pull off convincing him they were twins. but then i suppose they'd have to spin a whole other set of lies.

  60. __Jen__ says:

    Did anyone catch the Fringe-ish reference on Community yesterday? First Doctor Who and then Fringe. I love that show.

  61. psycicflower says:

    What way does yer man in the phone ad say mobile?

  62. psycicflower says:

    Scarlie married bug lady!!!!! I'm loving the universe changes.

  63. knut_knut says:

    I miss Scarlie and his spider loving lady

  64. @chuckLiving says:

    Whenever Walter was listening to Mozart, he looked so at peace. Heartbreaking that Astrid woke him up. :((

  65. monkeybutter says:

    Wow, Olivia's opening up.

  66. knut_knut says:

    oh god Olivia's face 🙁

  67. psycicflower says:

    Everyone on this show is just so tragic.

  68. monkeybutter says:

    So he's freezing the happy memories to hold onto them?

  69. psycicflower says:

    They're totally going to meet before the end of the episode.

  70. monkeybutter says:

    Oh crap he's on the loose.

  71. monkeybutter says:

    That was fast, Fauxlivia

  72. psycicflower says:

    Other side Fringe division! Alt!Astrid!

  73. __Jen__ says:


  74. @chuckLiving says:

    I just realized that both Broyles are alive!

    • SecretGirl127 says:

      Yeah, I didn't even make that connection. We know Fauxlivia took over Olivia's life for a while, so how did they get her back without killing Broyles?????

  75. carma_bee says:

    That was a B there

  76. monkeybutter says:

    I don't want to type while Astrid is talking and miss whatever she's saying.

  77. monkeybutter says:

    Astrid is better than us all!

  78. knut_knut says:


  79. psycicflower says:

    Well that was quick.

  80. monkeybutter says:

    B Limbo?

  81. knut_knut says:

    what is this mac and cheese patty melt nonsense??? why??????????

  82. psycicflower says:

    That Toyota ad was kind of creepy.

  83. Kate says:

    LIMBO's my guess, since Peter is in a pseudo-existance limbo?

  84. monkeybutter says:

    YESSSSSSSSSS Olivias in the car together!

  85. psycicflower says:

    Don't freak out the man with the drill for human skulls!

  86. monkeybutter says:

    Holy shit.

  87. __Jen__ says:

    This double universe thing makes for such cool character possibilities.

  88. akacj18 says:

    poor olivia is totally out of place and out of her element in the alt-fringe division office. she looks so small, literally and metaphorically. too bad she is also DOMINATING the alt-fringe team in investigative skillz. BOO YAAAAA.

  89. @chuckLiving says:

    This is not going to end well.

  90. __Jen__ says:

    Oh shit.

  91. psycicflower says:

    Olivia killed her stepdad! asdfghjmnbvcmdsngba

    Maybe that's why she doesn't blink anymore!

  92. knut_knut says:

    lol Olivia <3

  93. monkeybutter says:

    lol First time Fauxlivia has ever been shocked like that

  94. monkeybutter says:

    So he is stealing his other self's memories. Good job knut_knut!

  95. knut_knut says:


  96. psycicflower says:

    'Bring home the best action movie ever' – I really don't think so Transformers.

    • knut_knut says:

      couldn't they just have said best action movie of the summer? It's not true either, but EVER is a bit extreme

  97. __Jen__ says:

    That American Horror Story looks like it could be interesting.

  98. monkeybutter says:

    A halved apple!
