    Olivia's prominence in the show has really changed since the early seasons.

    So the boy is from 2600ish and is a by product of The Observers. So if the The Observers never invent the boy then how can he go back in time to stop them?

    Come on... this is basic time travel issues writers! :lol:

    My wife just had an interesting point.

    Is the tech Donald/September referred to 'The Machine'?

    The writers came out and said that everyone would get their own season in a way. I think they said this season would be Peter's.

    I know a lot is going on in this episode, but the thing that freaks me out the most is that people in the 2600s actually dress like it's 1950.

    At least Widmark didn't pull out September's porno magazines...

    September should've rigged his play to blow up.


    Never mind!

    Grand?

    Gravel?

    Gravy?


    That's it, gravy! The key word from 'Conspiracy Theory'.

    It's also strange seeing Cerveris being... Human.

    ;)

    A nice touch, that. That was my second favorite Fringe ep ever, right after 'Peter'.

    The scene between Walter and September was rather moving. Noble and Cerveris work well together.

    I was wondering if the white tulip would come back up.
