I would compare it to a pair of shoes that are too small and you have to curl your toes in while you wear them. That's what the other bed was like.

Shakira. I still can't get over that. Can you? And Shakira's really on a White House panel. Is that not ridiculous?
In other ridiculous news, MJ Lee (POLITICO) reports:
Fringe. I watched it Saturday. This was a better episode.
But I think the show's going to get the axe this year.
My criticism last fall is similar to my problem this season.
Last fall, the real Olivia was trapped in the altnerate universe, remember? And the alternate Olivia was pretending to be the real Olivia. And I said this was going to get old real quick (and it did) and that people expect Peter and Olivia to be together.
Well this was episode two and the thing is, Peter's still not on.
As part of the effects from his bringing the two worlds together, Peter disappeared and the Watchers erased all memories and evidence of him -- as though he never existed.
In the first episode (last week's) of the season, Walter kept seeing Peter on the TV screen and elsewhere. He didn't know that was his son Peter. He just knew he was seeing some man every where he looked.
He's hearing Peter's voice. He still doesn't know who Peter is. But he's hearing his voice and Peter's asking for help.
Now there was another storyline. Olivia had to work with Alternate Olivia. A serial killer on their side needed to be caught. On our side, he was a college professor. So Olivia accompanied him over (he was drugged and didn't know where he was going). He ended up catching on and rushed to try to reason with the alternate him. He explained that, on our earth, he ran away from his father and ended up living with a woman named Marlene who taught him about kindness. So that's why he didn't grow up to be a serial killer.
Backing up, when Olivia (our Olivia) was trying to talk to him and calm him down, she said her step-father abused her. Alternate Olivia heard and asked later if that was true? So Alternate Olivia wasn't abused is my guess (and that's why she lacks Olivia's power to transfer back & forth between the earths without equipment assisting her).
So the serial killer gets his other self the professor and removes a portion of his brain. The portion containing Marlene.
At the end of the episode, they're alarmed -- Olivia and Broyles -- because without the memory of Marlene, the professor could turn into a serial killer at any minute.
But it turns out, he remembers all the lessons Marlene taught him. He just doesn't remember her. Olivia says something like, 'How is that possible?' Broyles (or someone, I think it was Broyles) tells her that some people are so important to us that we can remember their lessons even if we forget them (maybe she tells that to Broyles?). The point being, that may be a hint that Olivia's about to remember Peter. I hope so because this no-Peter is getting very old.
