And so it ends...


I thought this was a good one but didn't get any groans... I'll have to try harder.

Re: Fringe Series Finale (Discussion, Spoilers)

There seems to be a lot of little things we need to go back and analyze...far more genre references than we suspect.

"Unit 2, Engage!"

And was it Oceanic Flight 513 (Lost)?

Lens flares..

Astrid had some great moments. She had the idea that was important to success...and an amazing goodbye to Walter. Though brief, it really highlighted what she contributes to the team.


Good ending. Not as great as I was hoping...but pretty darn good.

So they are all alive, Nina too. Walter and the child are somewhere in the future.

I take it Walter died since he was not innoculated.

I was hoping for more of a bang with that final scene. Then again, I only learned the significance of the white tulip last week since I missed almost all of the first two seasons.

I thought the episode was good though. Not one of the best finales I've ever seen but it was still good.

Walter was already innoculated in 2015.

Re: Fringe Series Finale (Discussion, Spoilers)

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

It wasn't horrible like Roseanne and Will and Grace, but not as great as Six Feet Under, Avatar, Boston Legal or Damages minus the last few minutes.

Goodbye, Walter.

Goodbye, Donald/September.

Honestly, ending on the white tulip was puzzling, but, poignant.

On the all, it was not spectacular but I liked it. They got Etta back. Walter achieved some measure of redemption.

I will miss this show terribly.

I will miss hanging out with you all.

See y'all around the board.

It was kind of abrupt.

Really though, a lot of otherwise good series struggle to close out strong.

Yeah, I think I feel much the same. It was great in that it pulled out so many elements from past shows, tying the series together and taking us down Memory Lane at the same time. I think part of me hoped for something more, but yet I suppose it had to end this way.

There were a lot of touching scenes that made this memorable.

Re: Fringe Series Finale (Discussion, Spoilers)

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.

The same here, my friend. Of all the shows that I've participated in their threads, I think I'll miss this one the most. Truly, some great moments both on screen and here on our board.

You all have been great company on Friday nights.
