I don't love Barack but I do love that comic. :D
Fringe. Remember, I'm one week behind due to Fox refusing to allow everyone to stream online immediately after an episode airs. (If you're a Direct TV subscriber, you can stream immediately. Everyone else has to wait 8 days.)
So, for those of us in the peanut seats, the latest episode finally brought Peter back on.
Olivia was being 'haunted' by an electrical presence. Walter was sure it was a kid he'd experimented on years ago.
I think his name was William. But he had his name as a child and what he changed it to. I can't remember both, sorry.
So they find William. Along the way, Walter looks at an envelope in Olivia's jacket and finds out that she's being asked if he's a threat to himself or others? That's why he leaves the lab. The first time he has. (What? Huh? Remember, last season's cliff hanger, when Peter saved the world, it took Peter away and erased a great deal of what happened. Without Peter there working with Walter on Fringe Division, Walter has instead always stayed in the lab and been too scared to go out.)
So William isn't responsible for the electrical storm. But he has magnetic powers.
He remembers Olivia, as "Olive." He trusts her but hates Walter who destroyed his life and his chance to be normal. When he gets nervous, he starts pulling metal to him. He got nervous on a date, he shares, and next thing he knew the woman's fillings were coming out of her teeth.
Walter does apologize to him. (If you're not up on Fringe, Walter and William Bell -- Leonard Nimoy -- conducted experiments on children to try to get them to develop powers. The children -- including Olivia -- do not see that as something 'good' or honest -- and who can blame them.)
So they end up trying to get him by an electrical power line facility. Him being whomever is the electrical person.
So Olivia stands there and the electrical cloud approches her then William uses his powers to destroy it as planned; however, Olivia screams for him to stop.
She senses something.
She's not sure what.
But when William stops, the cloud snaps and (they don't see this) Peter is slung out of the cloud and into an upstate New York lake.
Olivia and Walter get a call from Broyles that some man has turned up in a lake and claims to know Olivia and all about Fringe.
They go to the hospital.
Peter immediately recognizes Olivia but she has no idea who he is and that's the end.
At last, Peter is back.
I'm tempted to see if I can buy the episode at Amazon and stream it. But I'll wait like all the other peanut seat cohorts until Saturday when we can stream on Hulu.
Remember that Chuck is on this Friday with its first episode of the season.
