  • Season 3, Episode 14

    The last episode was not easy and it was no accident that took the number they had. 13, bad luck, bad luck, bad weather. We returned to the ghosts of the past and fears of the future. But it was not by chance that I, after all, wrote a critical light, full of faith and will.

    He was right. The now 13, went home and returned to one side. The one building, an apartment, where, in a lively evening party to counter a balcony disappears causing people who were in it, alleging that neither falling rag dolls on the floor. Another magnificent start to do remember "The Happening." It is early on that we also realize that this is an episode of reconciliation. Not discovered right away is that, rather than the peace of the rest is a couple of two.

    This is because the case this week was no more than a love story, bigger than any one of the two universes. An old woman, resident of this building, lost her husband some time ago, but the strength of their feelings makes him able to see the other side. On the side where things ran around and a widow cries with the same pain. The love of two has caused a rift opened up in our world and put at risk everything and everyone. For this problem there are two solutions: Amber, already familiar to us, or cause that you would break loose and eventually let her husband go in peace. He won the second and all finished well.

    I loved this story. Not only for being an incurable romantic, but also because I think balanceou perfectly the next sci-fi with the dramatic side, without ever taking off from mythology. It is necessary to achieve great maturity and harmony to tell us a story well. In addition, the bridge is also intelligent mounted between the case and the players. References were clear and the speech of Peter (Joshua Jackson) at the end showed how the narratives were symmetrical. And if the other won the loneliness, not this. Finally they set aside their heads pain, fears, and assumed the relationship. All done with great taste, without ever bothering or soften. The pity is that we know the rest, pregnancy, the other. The rest unnecessary, the rest expected to enovela thing. But well, for that matter can only hope.

    It was also very interesting to bring Amber back and put Walter (John Noble) in the same situation as his rival. Wonderful scene in which vents, realizing all the other reasons that led to becoming the monster it is. There is no good or bad, are all a bit gray.

    Finally, one thing that makes me confused is that the gaps in another universe just happened to have time and ours not. If there is an imbalance, both should be affected. Or not?

    That said, "6B" is not just a floor, is a return to the track. A fantastic episode dosing in certain doses fiction, action and romance.

    The Best: The Case of the week.

    The Worst: Us to know that this reconciliation is short-lived sun.moreless
  • Moving On

    This was a very unique episode and something very different from the rest of the episodes that doesn't require supernatural mutated beings of some sort. It was about two people mourning over their deceased spouse, very sad the pain they must have gone through. Their story was good enough for this episode, when it comes to Olivia and Peter there is no forgiving that needs to be said. Peter didn't do anything wrong he thought it was Olivia. After Fauxlivia left he missed those times of not being alone and having someone when you wake up beside you. He wanted that so bad with Olivia he ignore the small details that wasn't her because he was deeply in love with Olivia. Thats why Olivia let it go, writers wanted you to feel that she was scared because of the events in season 1 she lost the person she love and also betrayed her in a way. So towards the end I thought it was beautiful that she was willing to let Peter in I can see she's scared but she wants Peter as they head up the stairs.moreless
  • Thank you Olivia! She finally forgives Peter, and we can move on from there.

    I have to admit I was terrified for this week's episode. The last few have been nothing but painful attacks on Peter's relationship with Fauxlivia and Olivia blaming him every time she gets a chance. But tonight she finally forgave him and she snuck him up to the bedroom to "forgive" him properly. Oh, and there was also a ghost plot, who turned out to be the woman's not dead "over-there" husband. So the team figured out a way to save them from ambering the place and proving, once again, our Olivia is smarter! However, Walter putting on the get busy music and making pancakes for the two in the beginning of the episode had to be my favorite Walter moment yet, he was very sneaky *cough* about it, and had all of us laughing at his antics. So all in all, a good start to fixing the Fringe team and proving that not even sleeping with her double can end a relationship. Now let's see if they can handle the kidnapping of Peter's sperm in next weeks episode!moreless
  • Somewhere between Ghostbusters and Ghost

    Another well balanced episode of Fringe. The fringe case itself was intriguing enough, something as common ( in sci-fi ) as a ghost turning out to be something else entirely. The character interactions were interesting, between Walter questioning his actions like Walternate did last week ( anyone else worried that he may already have his full brain back and slowly turn into another Walternate ? )and Peter and Olivia having a shot at happiness together ... just before those nasty writers remind us that Fauxlivia is still out there ! And of course, call me excessively romantic, but I found that the core idea of the episode, the idea of love and grief so powerful they break the limits of death and reality, was a sweet one. Not exactly like the movie Ghost ( the couple was not THAT interesting in itself, even if you can feel some sorrow for the old man at the end ), but close enough. After Marionette, it seems that Fringe writers are not bad at stories about the human heart ...moreless
  • 314

    Another unique and interesting storyline in tonight's episode of Fringe. The woman, what was she up to? How were the laws of physics being defied in this building? They got you hooked, but like so many times before, once they explain what is going on, you start to lose interest. The writing is just a bit lame right now, pardon mon francais, and the show is sort of boring, as much as I hate to admit it. It is still aesthetically pleasing, it is still the best sci-fi series out there today, but it would be hard to argue against Fringe not being stale right now.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (6)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Olivia: So, what was so important?
      Walter: Hmmm? Important? Breakfast. The most important meal of the day. And I proved it in 1973. Blueberry pancakes. A Bishop family specialty, best eaten while it's still warm.
      Olivia: Walter, you didn't have to do this.
      Peter: That's exactly what I told him.

    • Peter: I know that you struggle with trust issues. That you have a difficult time letting people in.
      Olivia: Well, I... I'm struggling because the reasons are real. I'm not making them up.
      Peter: I know. I never wanted to be one of the reasons. And I still think about her, because I spent so long imagining going down that path with you. Imagining what it would be like to wake up in a bed next to you. To sit around, just the two of us having a cup of coffee, reading the paper. And then finally, I had it. I've seen what the two of us together looks like. And it's beautiful.
      Olivia: Peter, she's the one that took it away from us, not me.
      Peter: And now? Who's the one stopping us now?

    • Peter: Hey, Cupid!
      Walter: Did my plan work?
      Peter: Well, if your plan was to make things even more awkward and painful between Olivia and I, yeah, worked like a charm.
      Walter: Perhaps I should have made a frittata.

    • Peter: Walter, we keep 'em in the back.
      Walter: Then why are you all sitting around?
      Astrid: I'll go get it.
      Peter: You know, a thank-you wouldn't kill you.
      Walter: Oh, I'm sorry if at this moment, when the universe is collapsing, I forgot the magic word.

    • Peter: So you're afraid? Afraid of what?
      Olivia: That you were right, that this isn't just about her. It was, but I think that this is me. I think that I'm stopping this. Maybe I'm just incapable of being vulnerable...
      Peter: Olivia, come on! You know that that's not true!
      Olivia: It must be! I'm terrified that I can't fix this, that... that this is just who I am.

    • Olivia: Do you really think that this is the end of the world as we know it?
      Peter: If it is, there's no reason to wait outside in the cold for it. There's a bar right across the street.
      Olivia: Wait, you think that now's the time to be throwing back shots?
      Peter: Who said anything about donning shots? Maybe they got fries.
      Olivia: Now you're talking.

    • Peter: Did I ever tell you about the time Walter did his rendition of Never, Never Going to Give You Up?
      Olivia: No, but I actually love Barry White.
      Peter: He was only wearing his socks at the time. Doing the Hustle, there was a lot going on.

    • Broyles: I need to run this up to channels.
      Peter: Not exactly how you imagined meeting the President, huh?
      Broyles: I already know him. He doesn't like me, I beat him at golf.
