I really do not like how the show is placing so much emphasis on the trial Olivia was a part of years ago. Based on the ending to tonight's episode it looks like that will continue for some time, possibly beyond the rest of the season and I do not know how interested I am in that.
If this is the whole reason behind this show that would be a huge let down in my humble opinion. After an exciting first season I can't imagine this is where they planned on going. JJ Abrams does have a tendency for really letting his shows go after one season. I'm not saying Fringe isn't good anymore, but the show needs to be more packed with one and done storylines.
