I knew I shouldn't have picked Col. Mustard in the Conservatory. I had the weapon right though.

Diane Kruger turning up on Fringe was a nice surprise.

I saw the Observer. Before the credits, walking in the crosswalk at the redlight, immediately after cute lawyer chick first notices a rash on her arm but before anything else happens.

And a spoiler regarding the "bad guy" theory opined during last week's thread:
Spoiler:
The more I think about that "Walternate as the bad guy" hypothesis, the more it makes sense to me. But if Walternate IS the bad guy, then the writers missed a golden opportunity IMO to begin building that sub-plot into the story arc.

Sicky Boy had just spilled his guts to Olivia, mentioning more than once a "mysterious stranger" whom he had met at the hospital years ago. Now, when Peter and the cops arrive, had the writers simply included Walter in the arriving party - simple enough to do, all they need is to have some plausible excuse for Peter to be driving somewhere with Walter in the car after midnight. Sicky Boy recognizes Walter and says something accusatory. Walter, of course, has no idea who this man is, because he never met him at the hospital - Walternate did. The writers only needed to stick Walter in Olivia's apartment to begin laying the groundwork for a Walternate Reveal in 3 weeks.

It would've been too easy, but they didn't. Which makes me tend to think that Walternate ISN'T the bad guy.

Yup! I even said to my wife I wonder if that was an intended Basterds reference.

How'd they score her for such an insignificant role anyway?

She and Joshua Jackson have been together for the past 4 years.

I totally missed that was Diane Kruger. I don't know why, but I never recognize her until I find out later.

They were playing the board game "Clue" (which in-show was also referring to Olivia's search on what to do with Peter's secret) and in the game, you usually say murderer's name/location of the murder/murder weapon.

Unless you're looking for why they specifically said "In the Lab" (which isn't in the actual game, but probably refers to Walter's Lab) and why specifically Revolver is chosen (which is in the game, but I have no idea what further significance it could be - here's a stretch: number of people killed plus her = the # of bullets in a revolver? I'm reaching here... )

He was way too good for her. She's not very attractive, especially on the show. But amazingly, off the show, her hotness increases with the accent.

My theory has long been that Australian accents add 2.5 to 3 points on the hotness scale, making a 5 into an 8 or so.
