Fringe -- "Jacksonville" -- Winter Finale -- 02/04/10

Fringe

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
A bizarre seismic disaster in Manhattan leads Walter to believe the incident was not geological in nature, but may be related to his experiments with William Bell conducted decades ago in Jacksonville. In the hope of preventing another catastrophe, the Division heads to Florida, where Olivia is forced to confront the traumatic events of her childhood.


Yup, tonight is the midseason finale. Will return April 1st.

And Olivia was really pissed at Walter when she realized what had happened, both at the daycare and at the end of the episode.

She seemed more distraught than pissed at the end.

This was a pretty good episode. We get to see some twisted stuff and Walter's true evil side.

So Manhattan on the other side is spelled Manhatan? Weird...

This episode had so many great moments. But the best part for me wasn't the grossout face, or the evil eyed girl. It was Olivia's immediate reaction to Walter when she got out of the trance. 'You did that to children?' All of a sudden I realized just how bad Walter really was. No more adorable crazy scientist. Just an evil SOB who tortured little kids for 'science'.

Great ending. I'm glad someone else finally knows about Peter. I wonder how long it's going to be until he finds out. That should be a crazy episode.

The combo on the lock that Walter couldn't remember the significance was 5-20-10. May 20th perhaps? That's a Thursday if the show timeline is the same :-P

Great winter finale.

Is Peter going to know the truth in the season finale?

AWESOME episode. The moment where Olivia saw Peter at the end was perfect. I can't wait until this comes back and have my fingers crossed for a third season.

Fantastic stuff, and a real game-changer for the series now that "other side Peter" has been outed to Olivia. The dynamic between her and Walter seems to be permanently altered, and not for the better.

Can't wait to see how the rest of the season plays out....

This show gets better and better - the 2nd season amps up from our expectations after the 1st season. (What a contrast with Heroes!)

Actually, Olivia saw that Peter was from the other side earlier in the episode. When time ran out and she says "I'm afraid" -- it's clear that at that point her fear triggered her ability to see objects from the other side. At that moment, she sees Peter for what he is and runs to the window to look for the building.

It's interesting to note that Walter must have known that if he was successful in restoring Olivia's "vision" that she would know about Peter.

once we saw she was going to get her "seeing" powers you knew the reveal at the end would be seeing Peter for what he is. even though you knew it was coming it was still fantastic.

No she didn't. Her fear did trigger the ability but it wasn't fully happening yet. You can tell from the double take she does at the end when she sees Peter's otherwordly glow. Yes he was with her when the ability kicked in, but it wasn't at full strength yet - she could see the building because it was so MASSIVE - but the smaller energy wasn't visible... I watched the ep 3 times and am fairly certain she didn't know until she showed up for the 'non-date'.

But then why did she run to the window? Remember that time had run out and they had all given up at this point (that is why she was so afraid). It seems to me that she ran to the window because she saw Peter's aura and realized she had her ability back.

Just watched the episode on my DVR -- Walter made it clear to her that she didn't have the ability anymore because she was never afraid. When she realized she was feeling fear, she knew she might be able to see the building, so she ran outside. She didn't notice anything about Peter until the end.

Great episode. Can't wait for the final 8 episodes and really hope it gets renewed for a 3rd season.

Since the tidbit was brought up in this ep that both worlds have to eventually equal out the mass when there is crossing over, anyone else think Walter might have dumped his own dead Peter in the other world while kidnapping the live one?
