Season 2, Episode 16
Synopsis: Walter tells Olivia about the events in 1985, including how Peter ended up where he is today and what happened to the boy’s mother, Elizabeth Bishop.
I often wonder what I’d do when Lost ends and then I watch Fringe and think, I’ll be fine. In fact I prefer Fringe to Lost right now.
I love Walter. He takes crazy to another level and makes it more palatable for those with good mental health. He’s a gentle loving father who just happens to be a mad scientist.
We’ve had hints since season one that Peter isn’t all he seems and Walter finally confirmed it to Olivia in this episode. Now if she can just keep her mouth shut!
John Noble has a craggy face and I think the make up people did a decent job of making him look younger. There are people out there who have a face that looks old by the time they are 30 but by the time they are 50 they grow into it. He has that sort of face, therefore the flashbacks didn’t bother me they way the bothered other people. It’s all about the storytelling people. If you are watching Fringe you’ve already agreed to suspend belief, surely you can take it a step further and convince yourself that Noble looked young enough to pull it off.
