Anyone remember the episode that weapon was from?
I can't remember but it was late first season. It was a David Robert Jones invention.

Possible, based on what I've read.

I can't think of any other word that could fit the glyphs.

Damn, I hope I'm wrong, but I'm getting a bad feeling that Broyles is not long for this world.

I think I'm finished with this show. I almost wished it was canceled after season 3. This show is just a mess.

Didn't see that coming even with the glyph hint. I thought this was a good episode and dug the filming as I alluded to earlier.

I'd read that there was going to be a death. I figured it was going to be either her or Broyles.

Well, it looks like Peter is going full-fledged avenging angel next week. And I'll be rooting for him. Windmark is going to get his in the end.

Re: Fringe 5x04 - "The Bullet That Saved The World" (Discussion, Spoil

Alright...that was quite the shocker, wasn't it?

I wanted to like this episode, and for the most part, I did. There were some great references to the mythology of the Fringe cases and some great scenes with the Observers. However, I feel let-down by this episode.

I had heard that this episode was supposed to be a huge game-changer, thus I expected something along the lines of season three's "Entrada", but I found that the action was mostly saved until the tragic end of the episode.

The ending...that is another matter entirely.

I cannot describe how angry Etta's death makes me. I really loved her character, and to see her killed after only appearing in five episodes really upsets me and feels cheap. From a writing perspective, I can understand the move being bold, but I cannot help but feel angry at her death. I may accept it, eventually, but I'm certainly not happy about it.

Windmark now has one hell of a bulls eye on his bald head.

I had a feeling that either Etta or Broyles was going to die in tonight's episode. I'm glad Broyles wasn't going the one to go down since I wanted to see more of him but doesn't make Etta's death any less tragic. Poor Peter and Olivia. They reunite with their child after so long only to lose her when they are beginning to be a part of her life. I can't wait to see the impact Etta's death will have on the story. I foresee some hard times for Peter and Olivia. I hope Walter and Astrid can help.

Windmark is officiall my enemy after what he did to Etta. I'm almost thought with happy relief that he got caught in the anti-matter explosion. Seems he'll be sticking around for a while.

Is the bullet on Olivia's necklace Etta found the one that was in her head when Walter shot her in Brave New World?
