I think I shall miss them, more than I imagined. Especially Alt!Astrid.
I really enjoyed this episode of Fringe, and the way they bring back storylines and tie them together (somewhat – of course, given all the weird stuff that goes on, continuity is a giant victim). It’s difficult to keep straight, sometimes, given the variations of these universes we’ve seen, what canon still holds and what doesn’t. I mean, does season one Fringe seem like the same show at all now?
It makes sense that Jones would tap into the Cortexiphan subjects; like many, er, eccentric evil geniuses, he seems conveniently able to spin tales to get people to believe all sorts of shit. Those test subjects had already been demonstrated to be vulnerable, considering how most of them had their lives ruined by the Cortexiphan. But now that the bridge is closed, what’s he going to do? Obviously not give up, by the looks of it. Try to destroy each universe individually?
Lovely angst with Walter and Walternate, I thought, and I liked that Walter was obviously distressed at the thought of losing Peter, but that it wasn’t Peter making that ultimate sacrifice thing all over again.
I also like that Olivia had a cogent argument with Nick Lane, and that it still didn’t work. It wasn’t a surprise twist or anything; I found it fairly predictable. Because a conversation isn’t going to cure years of being messed up and/or angry. Where did Nick go, though?
Er, so apparently Lincoln’s intent was to get with redheaded Olivia. I don’t begrudge him any happiness, but urgh.
I guess I don’t have that much to say about this one.
