    In Absentia

    By thefanof, Jan 06, 2015

    This episode more than made up for a so-so premiere. You had a case that questioned morals, loyalty and how to proceed in the year 2036. You had a really intense confrontation with the loyalist, and you had a rare sight on TV where violence actually was lauded instead of ridiculed.

    A morally complex and deeply moving episode!

    A morally complex and deeply moving episode!

    The relationship with the loyalist taken prisoner alone is worth the price of admission.

    The development of Etta's story is even more amazing.

    Don't know. Still good but something's missing...

    After watching two episodes from the fifth season I see "Fringe" in a different perspective. It is hard to say if it is good or bad but for sure it is different. This feeling of looking for the Observers somehow made me more interested. This time I don't see the point in looking for them because they are everywhere. Nonetheless I am missing something and I hope that this "thing" will be soon discovered. Otherwise I will admit that they jumped the shark with the fourth season finale. Looking forward to be wrong.moreless

    5x02 "In Absentia"

    I just love it when Fringe goes all dramatic and asks questions about morality. This episode was a good example of that. Now that we have a line to follow (recovering the tapes), I think it's time to just shut up and watch Fringe end with a bang.
