The tape glitches really annoy me. Similar to fingernails on a chalkboard (I worked at a small TV station in high school).
On top of that, the glitches always happen at a point when you really want to know what's being said.

Etta's death was a shock. I agree with earlier posters that the end will be a time reset to before the invasion. Which would make the ending quite boring and predictable. I hope this is wrong.

Peter is going to unleash a world of hurt on the Observers now...

You only have to kill his daughter once to piss him off.

How many times do you have to kill his gf/wife though? I think we need a running tally on that one.

Me too. The first time or two... ok. But every tape has to have a glitch at the exact critical moment? It does become annoying.

I love this show, and look forward to each week of this final season. But I'm finding some of the plot devices are just a little too trite. I expect better from Fringe.

I think there are glitches in non-critical moments as well. You just don't notice them because...well...they are not critical!

A redheaded Etta? Hmm... That might be nice.
