Re: Fringe Series Finale (Discussion, Spoilers)

And so it ends, indeed.

Well, I have to say I really enjoyed the Fringe finale and I'm going to miss the hell out of Walt who will always be one of my favorite TV characters of all time. His emotional goodbyes to Peter and Astrid broke my heart. I wish he had one with Olivia, saying that she was the daughter he never had.

I love the returns of the cow and September's Observer leader, that Olivia got to use her abilities one last time, and that Windmark finally got what he deserved. But I'm sad that September died. I wished he could have spend more time with his son. At least, he has Walter to tell him stories about September.

The final scene felt like the right note to end the show on. It was emotional and left some air of mystery about whether Peter suddenly remembered at that moment the events of the deleted future, and what will the characters do now that the Observers won't be around anymore.

And the way I see it, in this alternate timeline, the Observers were around but they were deleted from the present along with Walter and Michael like Walter told Peter would happen. This should answer the question on the minds of those of you wondering why Peter would be still alive if September was erased along with the other Observers.

Like Joshua Jackson said, he doesn't expect the finale to satisfy everyone and considers that a good thing. I agree with him. The finale wrapped everything up and yet, I was left wanting more. I want to see more of Peter, Olivia, Walter, Etta, Broyles, Astrid, and Nina. Sadly, that can't happen and that is the marking of a good ending: giving us just enough for some level of closure while leaving the rest to our imagination.

Remember that Donald had the empty envelope and they wondered what had happened to the white tulip.
And that tulip was originally sent by another time traveler.
It's weird. Peter Weller was in a random episode in season 2-3 and then never seen again until last week. So Was Walter around until exactly that moment in 2016 then just gone? You would think he would want to be with his son and grandchild.

I'd actually like it more if the ending said here, with Walter being locked up, everyone thinknig he was crazy, happened.

Well, I'm glad I was way off on that; an ending like that would've been a tremendous let-down, and a cheap way to go.

I am disappointed that we didn't get to see Bell (minus his hand) one last time.

I know they discussed continuing Fringe in comic book form if the show got canceled last season. Here's hoping they go ahead with those plans. I've enjoyed the Smallville Season 11 comic for instance.

These chats have definitely been fun. You've done a great job, Proc. I'm just sorry that yet another great show is over and another chat thread is finished.

Re: Fringe Series Finale (Discussion, Spoilers)

I think a good sequel in the form of a comic book or novel, would be the story of what happened after Walter and Michael entered the shipping lane, from Walter's perspective.

Maybe they will meet the Doctor and talk about a fixed point in time.

We never did find out why Michael got off of that train.

^ Thanks for hosting so many of these, it's been fun.


It's been my pleasure, one I'm definitely going to miss. I've got my DVDs, but it's not the same as watching live and commentating you guys.

And I certainly will miss trading puns with you, Mr. A!

To give Windbad a nosebleed.

I hope so too, but there'll never be one quite like Fringe.

I'll miss your translations, O Lady of the Glyphs!

I'll still be watching the Fringe reruns on the Science channel. Been noticing the connections.

It was part of the plan.

Yeah, and people wonder why I don' enjoy the show as much as before.

And he'll convince Walter that bowties are cool.
