I actually like JOlivia the best. I hate Etta as a nickname. Sounds too forced, like they had to choose a nickname and didn't want to use Henri.

Also, Henrietta is the name of my brother's ex-wife, who left him out of the blue and took much of his stuff. So I have personal issues with that name.

Yeah, the other nicknames are to distinguish them from alternate versions of the same character.

Not a problem here.

Just to be clear... I don't care, really, and am not taking the debate seriously.

Though we probably should call Henrietta in the future FEtta.

Her name is Etta.

The names Walternate, AltOlivia/Fauxlivia were ways for us to distinguish the doppelgangers from the characters from the normal characters we follow. Thus far there is no other Etta, but going by the history of this show I would bet that at some point we'll need to come up with an alternate name for Etta.

I just rewatched this ep. and I'm pondering a few things. I guess I missed this the first time but in the scene where they're scanning Walter, Simon opines "Looks as if he's experienced some sort of trauma." Well, no sh*t, Sherlock! Maybe from when you blew him out of the amber at a hundred miles an hour?

How does being trapped in amber preserve you? It's not cryogenics. Wouldn't the stuff ooze into every orifice and become part of you? In any case, it's nice to know that in 2036, a shot can magically bring you back to life.

"Letters of Transit" - Not so subtle comparison of the Observer takeover to the Nazis? *

Holy crap, Olivia Wilde is hawt! (Not related, she was just on TV as I wrote this).

*Ref:
Spoiler:

In the movie 'Casablanca' (1942), the letters of transit were sought after items to allow one to leave the Vichy-controlled, Nazi occupied town of Casablanca for Portugal and eventually, America.

You had to remember the backstory to get that.
When Walter and Bell worked together, Walter voluntarily had pieces of his brain removed for some reason (that I can't remember ATM) which eventually led to his stint at the loony bin.

Amber is said to perfectly preserve a specimen (think Jurassic Park).
Creative license is obviously used in the delivery process and outcome.
In this universe amber starts as a gas and then solidifies. You certainly would not want to be inhaling as it is released.
