So what happened on the show?
First off, the ratings are not good this year. Fox needs to take that lock off the shows and stop making non-Dish subscribers wait 8 days. Fringe is going to need all the help it can get to survive the season, let alone come back next year. The ratings are awful.
And part of the reason is what I outlined last week. We don't want this b.s. about where is Peter?
We want to see Peter, we want to see him with Olivia.
So there was a little kid that bullies were threatening and he goes into this dank place (like a sewer system) and the bullies follow him. As they threaten him, they're covered with mold and killed. The mold goes after the city of Boston.
But they can't kill it. Walter says "no." If they kill it, it will hurt that boy who has formed some sort of psychic bond with the mold. So Walter's ready to give the boy a lobotmy to break the bond but in the end he talks the boy into letting go.
And he tells Olivia he's going crazy again. He explains he's hearing voices and seeing a man's face. Olivia hands him a sketch, it's Peter's face. Walter says that's the face he's been seeing. They don't know who it is but agree it must be something important if they're both seeing it. Olivia did the sketch from her dreams.
And that was the last scene, sadly. They need to get Peter back into the mix and quick or that show won't last four more episodes.
