    Oh my Walter.

    So I took a break between watching the previous episode and this one. I have a problem finishing TV shows, and I'm struggling to get to the end of this one because I don't. Want it. To end.

    Having taken that break, I forgot how INCREDIBLE Fringe is. And I am sorry. I will see it through to the end, and I will not be disappointed. It is known (don't hate the reference).

    Black Blotter focuses on Walter, with an expressionist point of view incorporating not just the prior season's animation (watered down wisely) but also his hallucinations, and his hallucinations of hallucinations. Combine the beautiful style--I felt the exact tone the writers desired hit me when that animation story happened--with great plot points like Olivia and Peter's continued strong bond, a bit of bad ass Astrid, finding the Boy, and a shootout with loyalists, and wow. Just wow.

    I'm gonna keep chugging and watch another episode before 3 am, I think.
