    No, they are obviously working towards a big Olivia reveal. Could be a while, though.

    Yeah, but, based on the previews...
    We're back to current time next week.

    Fringe jumps back and forth a lot. Universes, timelines, times, etc.

    I smell a pilot. For a spinoff. Hey, how did Broyles not age? In 2036, the Observers look like cartoons. During the opening crawl, I thought for a second I was watching Blade Runner.

    I must have missed some stuff. How come Ambassador Spock is entombed in amber?

    I'm no physician, but I'm pretty sure if they blew Walter out of stasis that violently, they would have killed the old man.

    Trying to make sense off all of the reveals in this episode.

    So which reality was this? The Fringe division seemed to be on the A side. But there was Amber like on the B side. And William Bell was alive. But he resided on the B side. Was it a combined reality?

    Just weird to see the Observers be evil. They've always been so detached until now.

    Other than that I'm not sure what we're supposed to take away from this besides that's the future the Fringe teams have to fight.

    Isn't Olivia/Peters daughter supposed to be the key to something? Wasn't that why The Observers wanted Peter to no longer exist? It seems these Observers are unaware of this. Why wouldn't they just kill her... it seems that would have been a more direct root?

    They don't seem to know that she exists...when they try to "read" her, they don't get anything out of the ordinary.

    By the way, when her role was cast, I'm pretty sure they said
    that she was going to be either a regular or recurring in the fifth season...

    Yes but since they've been watching history and were aware of her significance it would seem she would have been vulnerable sometime.

    Unless they can't "read" her in ANY way...

    Maybe the fact that her Daddy doesn't exist makes it impossible for them to track her? She just doesn't register as being her?

    By eliminating Peter, they sealed their own doom?

    I kinda like it. Just hope they go back to 2012 for a bit. Be cool to wrap things up in 2012 and have a chunk of time in 2035 and end the show there :)

    I vote for combined. Another thing was Broyles was around - which would be an A side thing as he was put in jail on B side. Also important to recognize that this timeline still appears to be altered (Peter removed). So that never got fixed.

    Was this Jones' plan? Merge the universes and let the Observers take over? Why do they need to be merged?

    I wish they would stay in 2035 and resolve today's arc there. Maybe make the bad guys into the heros.

    I liked this much better than the rest of the season. Now our Fringe team is coming back together like the old days.

    I'm confused as to which timeline this is. Although from the previews:
    If they shut down the machine then sever worlds that's why there's no mention of the other universe in this episode. I'm guessing they shut down the machine, then later in 2012 the observers take over.

    And John Noble plays yet another compelling version of Walter. He is an amazing actor.

    Is this the first episode of Fringe without Olivia's character appearing?

    John Noble is so good, as is the rest of the cast.
