Through the Looking Glass and What Walter Found There



A good episode for sure, but there was a lot of walking in circles. Literally. Yes, that was the point of it all, but it was kind of frustrating at times. Another thing about the 'Pocket Universe', with the Observers popping in and out, it was very reminiscent of The Matrix, not to say that this was a bad thing. Just an observation is all. Hell, even Peter with the use of his newly implanted tech in the back of his neck has suddenly taken on the characteristics of Neo. He's 'The One'. He even sees 'Blue' (Instead of Green).

One thing I gotta point out or something that is nagging me. I think the little bald kid is actually September.

Five-Twenty-Ten



If you must know, the episode title refers to William Bell's Safe Combination number. Another solid episode all around and one that answers one of the big questions about the Observers: Why are they bald. But first things first. The entire episode is basically tracking Peter and the longer he uses the tech that he implanted in himself, the more he begins to take on traits that are the hallmarks of Observers, the way the talk, the way they move and now the way they look. Earlier we see that the tech is definitely having a physical toll on Peter as he starts to bleed from his ear, but its at the end when Peter runs his hands through his hair, leaving a clump of it in his hand. He's losing his hair and soon he will look just like them. It was nice to get Nina Sharp back into the fold, even if she has aged quite a bit.

The Human Kind



I love the symbolism of what the bullet that Olivia has been carrying for the last few episodes and how it factored into the plot in a big way in The Human Kind. The bullet literally saves her life and in the end is what's saves Peter's life now that Olivia was able to bring him back and give up the tech. Also, Jill Scott did a great job as Simone. I don't think we will see the character from here on out, but it would be cool to see if there was a bigger plan that she plays in the demise of the Observers since she can see the future in a way. But with Peter now at a disadvantage of foresight in killing Windmark, maybe it's her ability the Human resistance will come to rely on and use to their advantage.

Black Blotter



With Walter dropping Black Blotter Acid, this opens up the episode to be one of the oddest episodes in the entire series. Odd, even by Fringe standards. If you remember the animated episode from a few seasons back you should have an idea what this one is like. I did get a kick out of Walter's minds eye when he was trying to remember the secret password as it took on the look and feel of The Beatles Yellow Submarine animated cartoon with live action cut outs. Very interesting episode for sure and not bad by any stretch at all.

Anomaly XB-6783746


Now THAT was a fantastic episode!! I knew instinctively that once Nina returned here to help the gang and the boy that her time on the show was coming to a close. I also knew that she would be "interrogated" by Windmark and that the only way out, the only way to save the gang would be to end her own life so that she couldn't be read and give away their position. None of this was a surprise. But she did have a great final scene where she basically points out the flaws of the Observers about them being animals. It was great. Even though Windmark didn't show any outright emotion to her revelation, you could tell that he was insulted...because he knew her to be 100% correct.

The big reveal comes at the end when we find out who 'Donald' is. It's none other than September. I had thought of this twist back when it was first mentioned there was a 'Donald', but I never went any further than this. But that didn't keep me from wondering if we would see September one last time before the series ends. It's safe to say, yeah, we will. Very cool.

The Boy Must Live



Well, it's finally revealed what I have suspected for quite some time now. Eradicating The Observers from existence will reset everything, which means that Etta will be coming back and reunite with Peter and Olivia. What I didn't expect (but make sense now that I think about it) is that in order for any of this to work, Walter will have to make the ultimate sacrifice with his life. He needs to go out like a Hero and basically redeem himself for some of the things that he did in the past, in effect resetting his mistakes that he more or less brought about through his tampering of worlds and parallel universes. Big reveal is that we find out that the little Boy (Michael) is actually September's Son and that by send him into the future, it will change everything. I wasn't expecting him to be caught by Windmark at the end of the episode. Well, he wasn't caught as the boy gave himself up willingly. So, me thinks the boy has something planned.........

Liberty / An Enemy of Fate



As a die-hard fan of Fringe, which I've been with since day one, I was always worried that the series would not give me a satisfying conclusion to what is one of the best damn shows I've ever seen. It was a very real concern for me that the finale just wouldn't deliver given how complex the mythology of the show is. How can anything really measure up to what's been an awesome 5 year run that always managed to outdo itself each season.

Well, having just gotten finished watching both Liberty and An Enemy Of Fate, I can honestly say I have never been more satisfied in wrapping up any particular series. This one had it all. Liberty was fantastic. The entire rescue of the little boy was very entertaining, edge of my seat drama. But it's An Enemy Of Fate that will leave you breathless. You have to be a fan of the show and know all the ins and outs of the characters to really appreciate what is being given to us in the Series Finale. Even I couldn't keep from getting misty eyed....more times than I thought I would. It was a very emotional send off for one of the main characters and a reunion of another, which is something I called way back earlier in the season. God, I'm gonna miss this show big time. Both episodes get 5 Stars each. Hell, they get 10 Stars!

Thanks for a great 5 years!! Everyone involved with the show did an amazing job! Your legacy is secured. Bravo!
