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.
As we stated earlier in the summer, production on the final season of Fringe dues to illnesses befallen John Nobel and Blair Brown. Well, we’ve come to learn that john Nobel was actually suffering from a sleep disorder and has now returned to work and we, Fringe fans, could not be more ecstatic.
He told EW:
“I couldn’t even think, mate,” the Australian actor tells EW. “I was working and going: ‘This is really hard.’” Which is saying a lot for a heady sci-fi series that routinely challenges its cast and audience with such noodle-cooking concepts as time travel, parallel worlds, and alternate timelines. With the blessing of producers and backers, Noble took 10 days off to seek treatment in Los Angeles. He’s now back at work in Vancouver, shooting the second episode of the season, which will launch as scheduled on September 28. “People were so bloody supportive, it was really touching,” says Noble. “I’m feeling more well rested now and sleeping better than I have in 20 years.”
