Fringe's Series Finale Trailer Portends Doom (VIDEO)

Fringe ends forever on Friday. Yeah, sad stuff. Obviously we'll miss Walter and Peter and Olivia and Astrid and that dwarf whose head exploded in the subway, but do you know what's going to be just as painful? Not seeing anymore of the awesome Fringe promos that are constructed by some incredibly underpaid mad genius in the basement of some building in Beverly Hills.

But with only one night of Fringe left, the promo department dialed back its cryptic teases down to a 7 and appropriately let a lot of new footage take the spotlight. And you know what? The new footage looks pretty spectacular and like everything you want out of this plot-heavy action film of a season.

Uh-oh, is Walter going to die!?!?!!? "Do you have the courage to sacrifice anything?" "I know in my soul this is what I'm supposed to do." Kinda sounds like Walter is gonna die, if you ask me.

    That show is all about choices and how it is affect space and time. All that happened in Fringe was always about Walter's choice to kidnap Peter to the other side in order to save him from death.

    To be consistent with the timelines we've come to know, if the plans works and the observer creation doesn't occur, it means that September isn't there to distract Walternate from the remedy in the 1980's. It is most likely that Walter's sacrifice will restart a new timeline!

    I just hope they don't give us another Lost finale

    Looks AMAZING!!! Best promo ever. Can't wait but at the same time devastated it's ending.

    Dream finale: They go to the otherside, we see what's been up with Lincoln Lee, they talk to Walternate, he takes the place of our Walter, and when all is said and done, Olivia, Peter and Walter get to live the rest of their days solving "normal" Fringe crimes.

    I think he will die, and actually won't mind dying as he does not want to become "the old Walter" again, and with Nina gone, there is no one to fix him this time :(

    Why not kill Astrid she is pretty useless for most of the series at list this way her character will do something except babysit Walter

  • Geertvdheide Jan 16, 2013

    While Astrid handles a lot of communication, research and support tasks, I agree that Astrid doesn't add that much in terms of story. I would have loved to see more Astrid-centric episodes expanding her character and backstory, but seeing her interact with her other world counterpart was pretty cool. Killing her in the finale wouldn't make any sense though, imo.

    Anyway, I'll miss Fringe but I like the fact that the show is ending on a high note. A few more seasons could really have hurt the overall quality. Longer shows often become watered down, repetitive or unfocused. Now it ends as one of the very best sci-fi shows ever! I'm confident the finale will be amazing and satisfying, both emotionally as well as plotwise.

  • ElisaDiaz Jan 16, 2013

    meh.... they already said that Walter would have to die in prior episode (Donald confirmed to Walter)

  • JoshuaFraim Jan 17, 2013

    yeah but remember september also said the same thing about olivia last season. dying isn't always permanent.

  • ElisaDiaz Jan 17, 2013

    even vampires don´t stay vampires forever these days, LOL, you are right - maybe when they said "I'll have to sacrifice myself" he didn´t mean death
