I've been cheating and watching a little on Friday. I'll sneak out of the Iraq study group for ten minutes and watch some of the show. Then forget what I last blogged on.
So, no, I haven't walked away from them.
Okay, Fringe. On the most recent episode available on Hulu or at the show's website, there's a girl who can see things that will happen in the future, she can draw them. Massive Dynamic wanted her in Baltimore and have pursued her ever since. (I believe this alternate Olivia lives in Boston like our Olivia.) When Lincoln (?) and Olivia go to find her, the father wants them to stay away because he wants his daughter to have a normal life and Massive Dynamic did these awful things to her.
Our Olivia and this Olivia were both tested on by Walter and William Bell and that's Massive Dynamic. Our Olivia has the ability, when frightened, to enter a different realm. She can cross to other dimensions. The Olivia on the show right now can't. Or if she can, doesn't know she can.
She also doesn't know that Blair Brown's character is not a good person. Her Nina is actually behind drugging Olivia. Olivia has bad headaches and doesn't know that she's regularly gassed and then Nina's goons enter her apartment.
The girl is able to help Olivia and the gang prevent a major bombing. But then the girl dies. (She saw her death coming.)
And as Olivia's feeling sad about that, Peter happens by and she shows him a photo. It's a watcher. But they don't call them that here. She wants Peter to tell her about them in his universe and he explains that they show up at major events. She asks if they're ever wrong and he explains they don't predict, they share what they have already seen.
He asks her if she's met one and she doesn't explain to her that not only has she but that he told her that in all the universes, it's always the same, Olivia must die.
It was an interesting episode. But I'm tired of Peter being stuck away from Olivia. At the end of last season, he entered that machine and it was supposed to be like Peter never existed. Instead, it's taken him to different universes. ANd they should have had him home already.
