So the most recent episode (click here for it at Hulu) finds the Fringe crew dealing with a man who's making people float (and then killing them). And Peter and Olivia are playing full disclosure, this game where they tell each other everything.
And, at the end, Peter tells her about his secret project. And I'm guessing he now regrets that.
The episode starts with Walter at Massive Dynamics getting stone with a security guard and they're talking about when Walter slept with Yoko Ono, among other things. And Walter ends up in William Bell's office. (Bell died at the end of last season -- Lenoard Nimoy played Bell.) He finds all these old proposals including one for bringing people back from the dead.
He runs to Nina who doesn't think it's possible.
The Fringe crew solves the floating mystery.
Walter is bothered by the fact that a lot of what's going on appears to be a ripple effect from when he went to the alternate universe to kidnap/save Peter. (Peter was his son. On this earth, Peter died. Walter was watching the alternate universe and saw that the other Walter wasn't figuring out the cure -- his Peter suffered from the same disease. Walter crossed over, grabbed alternate Peter supposedly to treat him but ended up keeping him when his wife asked him to. We've since learned that his wife then wanted Peter returned. And that, as a young boy, Peter met Olivia.)
So he's talking to Nina and brings up the plan to bring Bell back and she is skeptical. But he's sure it can be done because we are energy, he explains, and energy never dies and cannot be destroyed. He grabs this bell that Bell (get it) had given Nina and strikes it. He then looks deep in Nina's face and asks, "Billy?"
No, Nina informs him, it's still me. :D
So Peter is showing Olivia what he's been doing. And it's obvious that she's bothered about the shape shifter aspect. (Peter was killing them off to get their discs.) She walks off to the side and stares at her reflection.
Peter asks her a question.
In Joey's old woman voice!!!!!!
Guess who she is?
Oh Lord. This show is so weird. (And I mean that in a good way.) I can't wait to see what happens next.
Okay, I'm noting this from the Center for Constitutional Rights:
CCR Statement on People’s Movement in Yemen, Violent State Attacks on Protestors
Yemeni authorities must end their deadly night raids and other attacks on protesters. There are reports that one protester was killed and an estimated 100 peaceful protesters were injured after the Yemeni government used live ammunition and tear gas against them in Sana’a late Tuesday.The United States government and the international community must take a strong position against such violence and support the Yemeni people and the democracy they and the people of Tunisia, Egypt and Libya are fighting for. The current uprising, which includes thousands of women, men and students, is a clear indicator that the continuing repressive and anti-democratic status quo in Yemen cannot and will no longer be tolerated by the people. We urge the Obama administration and the international community to support the political transition from the repression of the corrupt Saleh regime that is being catalyzed by the Yemeni people in their demands for democracy.We are deeply inspired by the Yemeni people’s struggle for democracy and the freedom to determine the future of their own nation, even in the face of violent attacks from the government. This is a cause for hope.
The Center for Constitutional Rights is dedicated to advancing and protecting the rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Founded in 1966 by attorneys who represented civil rights movements in the South, CCR is a non-profit legal and educational organization committed to the creative use of law as a positive force for social change.
I used to love CCR. It was my favorite organization because it didn't kiss ass and it wasn't scared of anyone. They were challenging the occupant of the Oval Office from 2001 through 2008. But then Barry O came traisping into the White House on his magical unicorn and between Bill Quigley and Vince Warren, it was like CCR had turned into a fan club for Barry O. You pictured Billy and Vince whipping it out and seeing who could beat off the fastest while moaning Barack. And Vince and others meet with Barack and when that comes out, the attitude of CCR is 'We can't discuss that meeting.' Excuse me? Do I not remember the comments about Cheney's secret meetings and Cheney was the vice president.
So I haven't been impressed with CCR much at all. It does seem to be coming back to life. (And I'll credit that with Michael Ratner who seems the least likely to drink anyone's Kool Aid.) But, I have to be honest, even now, highlighting CCR, I'm always nervous about it. Like in three days, they'll be going back to fawning over Barack.
CCR should never fawn over any president.
