How I missed this show… How very happy I am that it is back… even if it is for a brief 13 episode series ending chapter.
Let me digress.
Season 5 picks up in 2036 and the Observers (in all their Mad Men-like regalia) rule the planet with an iron fist. But the defining moments of the episode were not the edge of your seat moments. No, no… they were the private moments shared between a family.
Seeing Peter and Olivia reunited…
and then finding out why Olivia went to NY and Peter stayed behind…
Walter sharing a moment with his granddaughter…
and finally the moment that we had all been waiting for…
All my husband could do was give me a roll of paper towel as I wept.
Whereas the glyphs that acted as markets throughout the episode spelled…
… the show ended with Yaz’ Only You playing on as Walter looked at a dandelion. For those of you that don’t know, the dandelion has meaning and that is that it is a gift to a loved one that will provide happiness and a promise of total faithfulness. Yes, Walter may have lost the information locked away in his brain due to the interrogation by Windmark, but that does not mean that Walter can’t do it. He just needs to have faith in himself.
So, Fringe fans… we’re in for a fun ride because this episode was the nut-grabber. The prologue to 12 episodes which will be filled with action and an ending to a series that has given its fans some of the best TV ever produced.
What to expect in the episodes ahead:
In the promo for In absentia that we posted earlier and in tonight’s episode, we see that Etta has some serious anger issues and is hell bent on revenge for what the Observers have done to her (separating her from her family) and to the world. She is capable of anything and it is up to Olivia and Peter to keep her on track as they fight for freedom.
Fringe: Remember at the end of last season when Walter was in Transit and retrieved part of his brain in order to be a bit less scatterbrained? Well, Jasika Nicole hinted that her character, Astrid, will continue to be by Walter’s side because he is still “not there.” She went on to say, there’s some stuff that goes down after we get out of amber that you’ll see that he’s going to need a lot of taking care of and Astrid is going to be a really important part of keeping Walter on task.”
The Vampire Diaries: In the first episode of Season 4, Elena will remember a moment from her past in which Damon told her he loved her. Yet, due to her new state of being, she will not recognize that she’s watching a memory from the past rather than experiencing a moment in the present.

Insider: Fans are obviously hoping the show gets a fifth season. Have you heard anything on set that we don’t know?
Jasika: We honestly still do not know – we feel pretty confident that we’ll be back but for a 13-episode fifth season. It’s a rumor that’s going around, so we all feel like it won’t be a full 22 but we’ll have time to wrap everything up and provide closure for fans.
Insider: You’re currently filming episode 17 — and I know that Jeff and Joel have repeatedly said that they have a finale plan in place that would take a certain number of episodes to complete. As far as you know, that plan hasn’t been initiated, right?
Jasika: There is a huge moment in episode 17 that could actually be the start of the end of the show. I don’t think it is though because the writers always do that. I have actually thought that every season finale worked as a series finale – it’s such a tease. I have no idea if this is the start of those episodes — although I don’t think they would tell me if it was anyway [laughs].
Insider: When I talked to Josh Jackson a few weeks ago, he remarked that Peter should become an Observer at the end of the series. What do you think Astrid’s endgame should be?
Jasika: Whoa! I’m still reeling from the Peter thing. That’s cool and it totally makes sense. Oh man. I love that. OK, focus — Astrid’s endgame. OK, I have no idea if this could ever happen but I think there’s a real possibility that the Astrid’s would live together. Like, one of them would permanently move to the other side. You’ll understand that better after tonight’s episode, but because of what the alternate Astrid ends up going through in her home world, there’s a real potential for her to be forever drawn to this Astrid so I could see her deciding that they are family now.
Insider: I feel like that’s the pitch for a half-hour sitcom!
Jasika: What’s funny is we actually have created a 30 minute sitcom called Farnsworth P.I. – the idea was created by this guy Ari Margolis and his idea is that Astrid gets caught in a timeloop because one of Walter’s experiments goes awry, so she keeps flashing to different decades. It’s kind of like Quantum Leap – so to keep herself afloat, she’s become a private investigator. So she’s in this huge afro and white leather knee-high boots in the 70s and got a gun. She’s trying to get back to her original timeline, but she keeps getting thrown around history. I definitely think there’s a sitcom out there for Astrid.
