It's the original and only title. There was a rumor that it was changed because a promo for season five was labeled "Etta" but there was nothing to it.

That promo with the Observers coming after Etta is great.

Re: Fringe - Season 5 discussion

Two weeks to go, folks! I am getting more psyched by the day. While part of me will always miss the reality that was presented in Seasons 1 - 3, I'm jazzed with this new future that Fringe is taking us into. Hopefully, even if Nimoy opts to not return to the show, we'll at least find out how Belly ended up in amber along with Walter and Peter.

^I did see him in one of the trailers, but I guess it could have been old footage.

I haven't read anywhere yet that Leonard has signed on, but he does like J.J. and seems to enjoy portraying Bell. I remain hopeful that he'll at least show up in the series finale, if not at least once before the end.

Re: Fringe - Season 5 discussion

Will we be getting flashbacks to the "present day" for closure there as well? I think I'll be a tad disappointed if the final season of my beloved show is entirely in this future period (as awesome as that will likely be).

While I don't know for certain, my gut feeling is that we'll definitely have flashbacks, if for no other reason to see how the Observer take-over began, and how the team ended up in amber.

Plus, I personally feel there's a few loose ends to tie up from the whole 'reboot-of-the-universe' storyline from last season. Either way, I'm really looking forward to the show's return.

The one trailer did show Peter and Liv with a young Etta as a bunch of Observers show up. If that is actual footage from the episode, it would seem to indicate that there is some kind of a flashback in the premier.

I'm hoping that at some point we get word of the final fate of the Red universe. Did the observers end up there as well? If not then why not?

I would like to hear something about this as well. When they closed the bridge at the end of season 4 I was sad to hear that we would no longer see any of the redverse characters.

I think with the Observers, you have to wonder if they can travel between realities (which, given their evident scientific and technological superiority, seems plausible). If that is the case, then there is a strong chance that they could have ended up in the redverse as well (and perhaps other universes).

But here's the thing there: Why would they go to another reality when they already have ours? If they have an excess of Observers, sure, but otherwise I don't know if they would. For exploratory purposes perhaps, but nothing more.

Well we know that the Red Universe had observers since we saw them there. The question is whether or not they were native to that universe or were travelers from the Blue Universe?

Re: Fringe - Season 5 discussion

Two days and counting. Can you guys tell that I'm psyched?



On that note, I will most likely have the discussion thread up and running sometime tomorrow afternoon. I know it's a bit early, but hey, it IS the season premier.

Minor spoiler for next week's ep in the new TV Guide.
