Re: Fringe Series Finale (Discussion, Spoilers)

I guess I can take that as an explanation as well and like you said, it has been mentioned by Walter, so it can also be found inside the canon of the show. And it's simple!

I have always figured that yes, there are infinite amount of universes, but that our familiar blue and red worlds are somehow entangled together like the double helix of DNA if you will - perhaps because they were at some point just one single universe and they separated by some cataclysmic event, yet still very much connected. This fairly small and I suppose quite obvious theory might also explain the existense of the Machine in both worlds.

Re: Fringe Series Finale (Discussion, Spoilers)

I'm more worried that there is a finite chance of immortality and I'm the version of me that gets to live forever. It really buggers up my pension plan.

I wonder what Hugh Everett, the proposer of the MWI, is doing in the branch of the multiverse where he's still alive. He was a clever chap so I doubt that maintaining an income would be a problem, but who really wants to live forever in a universe when all you friends and family die before you and you survive until the end of time?

Forgetting all of the other problems with time travel logic, Walter states that both he and Michael will be anomalies beyond 2015. I understand why Michael would be an anomaly, since he couldn't have been created by the Observers in the first place if they never existed, but I can't figure out why Walter would be an anomaly. Am I forgetting some critical interaction with the Obersvers he had? In this timeline, he and Peter were never saved by September, so it's not that ... so why would Walter be an anomaly?


I agree, this makes no sense. I mean for a time, Walter was going to let September accompany the kid... So if that had happened, would Walter STILL have disappeared in 2015? The whole thing just defies all logic.

That said, I still enjoyed it, on an emotional level. I am really, really going to miss seeing John Noble on my TV each week.
