Synopsis:

Spoiler:
Alternate Olivia joins Peter and Walter on a case involving a strange box that may be causing people to go into trances from which they never emerge. Meanwhile, Walter meets Nina at Massive Dynamic for a reading of William Bell's will.


Great debut last week. Looking forward to seeing what transpires next with Bolivia/Olivia story arc.

This probably one of the coolest promo photos the show has put out.

Great episode. This season is going to be so good. I love all this Olivia/Olivia stuff and the Alternate universe being such a key part of it all.

Rotfl @ ETM's head blowing up. I like how they are back to the case of the week, but it ties into the overall plot. God this show is good.

Fauxlivia is cute. Maybe she smiles more.

The midget's head exploding was fucking awesome!

Loved when Walter called Astrid...Aspirin.

Very good episode by the way. The show is just consistently good every single week.

Astrid: "Walter, I think you have brain matter on your tie"

Walter: Licks the tie, "Ahhh, it's raspberry jam!"

I'm a little surprised that Walter and Peter haven't caught on to Bolivia's odd behavior.

So is that music box supposed to be a piece of the Doomsday device that Walternate is creating? I know Peter is one of the key players, but why did Bolivia's contact dump it with the midget at the subway station?

First, yes it must be. It was in the schematics.

Seocond, it's simple: They needed to find a way to get Peter actively engaged.

It worked.

Peter has mentioned a couple things... like her noticing music. But Peter is also attracted to her, and Fauxliva knows it, and therefore his head can easily be distracted by her.

Fauxlivia is a lot more confortable smiling that the real Olivia ever was. When Olivia smiled (and it wasnt that often) it was like she was trying to figure out how the mouth is supposed to go and wondering if she was doing it right. The fake one will show those pearly whites at the drop of a hat, which makes her kinda scary.

Also, is it just me or does Faulivia have a different walk?

Yes, she walks and carries herself very differently than Olivia. I'm surprised no one has noticed.

Considering that one of the easiest ways to ID someone at a distance is by watching them walk it is kind of surprising that these none of these Einsteins have noticed anything different about "Olivia."

And Anna Torv finally has a chance to show off her acting chops which have been missing for the past seasons.
