Say, Walter's team succeed and their plan works out. This means that observers as we know them will never come into being. September will never exist to save Walter from drowning. Our-world Peter will die as he did, and the-other-world Peter (who is one of the leading characters in the story) will also die, as the other Walter did not know how to cure him. In the end we will come back to the original time line, but without Walter and Peter; And the whole story we have been watching will never exist and have never existed. It will be just a bubble or an insignificant loop in our time line. To my personal delight, there will never be any love story between Olivia and Peter, because Peter died as a child. Getting back their daughter (Olivia and Peter's daughter) would be a complete rubbish. Why did Olivia not see it?

Keep in mind that Peter should have died the first time they changed the timeline (at the end of season 3), but came back because of his strong emotional connection to the group. Therefore if Peter is already an anomaly, then it's possible that he'll simply remain that way if the timeline changes again.

Of course, I want to believe that there's another way, that even without Observers, Peter and Olivia are fated to meet ...

for a second, I wondered why Peter wasn't as enthusiastic about the plan as Olivia. But think about it : if the Observers never exist, logic tells September never goes to 1985, doesn't distract Walternate, Walternate cures Peter ... and Peter and Olivia never meet. Peter knows he has to sacrifice his life with Olivia to save the world. Ouch !
