*flails wildly* FRINGE

Spoilers like crazy for winter finale: Jacksonville XD

First off - while I enjoyed the episode, it went by really fast. I barely felt we had an episode - it wasn't very complete. It was something probably better suited for a two-parter, y'know? The key thing of this episode was to finally, finally confirm in-canon that Peter isn't from this 'verse. And of course we don't get that til literally the last minute. >.< Gah!

Second - favorite parts: a. Nina Sharp. Seriously, I know she's barely there, but she seemed more accessible in these moments, probably due to her emotional state. b. Olivia's drugged state and her reaction to Walter, "You abused us!" and the dead-on accusation that Walter was seeking answers to questions he shouldn't have been asking.

Disliked - a. Lack of Astrid! Damn it people. I want my girl getting her screen time! Why's she constantly stuck in the lab? You do realize that her official job is an FBI agent, right? Not a babysitter? b. Peter being so damn giddy at the end. *facepalm* It's true I'm not real keen on canon-established P/O. I think the reason I like Mulder/Scully is because they progressed it over a long time and there was a lot of issues and developments that occurred throughout. I really don't want any relationship being officialized on Fringe this early. (However, I am amused how excited Walter is about the potential.)

Questions:
- Where was the Observer this time around?
- What was the patch on Peter's jacket from the first part of the episode?
- About balance... if the hotel was taken away, wasn't something else supposed to appear? What was it and where was it?
- Padlock code, 5-20-10... significance? (Fringe isn't coming back in May, is it? As in 5/2010)
- Peter looked both a little more clean shaven, but at the same time a little sickly. Was something up with Joshua Jackson during the filming?
- Olivia didn't answer Broyles when he asked what it was that made her ability "turn on." 1) Why wouldn't she? (This I'm just interested in hearing more theories about, it didn't really surprise me.) 2) Why did the camera focus on him for a long moment after she shut the door?

I think that's all for now! Tomorrow I'll watch Bones... and otherwise be busy hammering out the setup for Fringe RP!

OH! Nice catch on the lock combo! Maybe that is the projected date of the finale this year?

Now that's an interesting thought. I need to look up when they're coming back on air. =) At least I'd have a chance on confirming an "easter egg" like that. The mythos hints embedded everywhere is ridiculously hard to dig all of it out... =p

Oh Fringe... j'dore.

I don't know about the finale date, but if William Bell used that combination for everything and it is indeed a date -- something BIG is about to happen. LOL.

This episode made the fangirl in me come alive with vegence. AS WELL Made me contemplate taking a gun to fox studios. It was so intense and being sweeps months and all they should've extended this episode to two hours. I agree with you the P/O thing is comming on a bit fast. But the sexyness in that almost kiss was intense. Good acting on both Joshua's and Anna's parts.

One thing I have noticed is the observer is always where you least expect him.... and sometimes he is so quick you have to pause to relize he was only in 1 or 2 frames.

It's rather ridiculous, I know! I rely on the wikis to tell me where the Observer is, most of the time. And friendly screencaps. Even when I'm paying close attention to the show I'll often be distracted by what else is going on in the shot. *facepalm*

btw, did you see that obligation_rpg is now accepting apps? =D

Yes. Debating who I want to play... thinking Liv's sister. Or mayber one of the characters with "powers"

Ooo, would be awesome! =D After last night's episode I need to look at a screencap of the height chart at the daycare and get a few more names up in the "abilities" list. =p

If you figure out who you're leaning towards, let me know so I can put the character on hold for you. ^_^V
