I don't watch a lot of TV. Everything I watch is pretty much up here.
I'll try to catch up on Nikita in next week's blogging.
But first we do Fringe. As a few of you pointed out already, I guessed right. On the latest episode at Hulu (just went up today), the following takes place at the end.
Peter: So I helped you? Then I need you to help me now. I have tried everything I can think of -- everything that I know how to do -- to get back home and none of it has worked and nobody here can help me. But you can. I know you can. Please help me get back home.
Watcher: You have been home all along.
Peter: I don't understand. I was erased.
Watcher: There is no scientific explanation but I have a theory based on a uniquely human principle: I believe that you could not be fully erased because the people who care about you would not let you go and you would not let them go. I believe you call it love.
Peter: And Olivia?
Watcher: She is your Olivia.
First, Fringe is a sci-fi show. So I expect science to be correct. The Watcher did not have a theory -- a theory can be tested. He had a guess so what he was a hypothesis.
That's a pet peeve Elaine blogged on back before she had her own site and was guest blogging. Stop calling a "hypothesis" a "theory."
Second, go back to Feb. 25th, my post "Is Peter Home on Fringe?" and
Okay when I was typing I got an idea.
This is my guess. It could be right but it's mostly likely wrong.
On all the earths we've seen -- at least 3 but possibly 4, Peter's dead? Really? That makes sense? How about the "possibly 4" part? Why do I say possibly 4.
This season we showed up with World 3 and Peter surfacing in the lake. And the immediate alternate world World4 is a whole lot like World2 to World1.
How did last season end?
Peter got in the machine and the Watchers told us that it was going to wipe him out of both realities.
So that would explain why Peter would be gone from both World1 and World2.
What if Peter resurfaced not on World3 but on World1. What if Olivia's regaining the memories that the Watchers wiped out.
I wonder if that's what's been going on this season?
What if this whole time, Peter's been home and not realized it?
Yep. Let me do the Snoopy dance.
Other than that, the episode was nothing special. There was a nice scene with Nina and Olivia at the start where Olivia made it clear that she wants what she wants and Nina's telling her that they aren't her memories (we now know that they are).
Don't forget that on NBC tonight, there's a new episode of The Firm. That show's really gotten good.
