Fringe 5x06 - "Through the Looking Glass and What Walter Found There"




The Fringe Team investigates a pocket reality occupying an apartment building, and Peter learns that he has the power to stop the Observers.

One of the things that I've 'observed' since this season began is that with each successive episode, the story has grown darker. Walter's brain getting scrambled (again!) Desmond losing his head (literally!) and the heartbreak of getting us to really like and care about Etta and then killing her.

This show is rockin' so far, and I think the ante will be up even higher now that Peter has stuck that thing in his neck and become 'one with the Borg', as it were.

If I did the math right, I think after next week's ep, we'll have a four week hiatus, then then four weeks leading up to the finale, which will be the final two eps. Should be a heck of a ride.

It is. But at least it appears that they have a definite end in mind, and in some ways that better.

Still, it will seem strange not having these little Friday night gatherings, making jokes about Walter's food-fetishes, the variations of Astrid's name, or Belly's hand.

Hey, does anybody have a list of the things Walter has called Astrid?

What did he call her this week? It didn't even sound CLOSE to her name.

You're right, but I can't remember what it was. Asparagus, maybe?

I'm afraid I won't be here tonight and probably not next Friday. I'll DVR Fringe this weekend and post my review then.

Have a great time everyone!

Ostrich! How could I have forgotten that one!



Thanks for this, Maria! I'm glad that you came through the storm all right. I know it's been a rough go for many, many folks. We're glad to have you back.

With this title I'm hoping we see Walter with a giant hookah and a magic caterpillar.

Hello everyone, I won't be able to watch this with y'all tonight. I've got a Birthday Shindig to attend. Have fun and I'll catch y'all next week.

I half-expect him to start singing "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds".

Have fun at the Shindig, Quo! We'll do our best to hold down the fort without you and Pipes.
