    A great episode. For two reasons: One, it's just another part of the awesome Fringe season 3 experience that makes every week all the more better. This episode worked in bringing in some more easygoing dynamic between the main team (Altlivia, Charlie and Lincoln), and even humanising Walternate somewhat. Some developments that I'm looking forward to seeing play out are getting going here, and I truly hope more than anything that we get a fourth season to watch them do their thing.

    Two, Haig Sutherland (Riley!) showed up for a minute. Julie McNiven showed up for a minute extra, decked out in crazy bug lady costume that was equals parts crazy, hot and awesome. Awesomeness.

    There's no doubt Fringe is actually the best show currently on TV imo. But those last few episodes the romance took too much center stage. Having Peter's choice of women and Olivia's pregnancy deciding the fate of the universe is a bit too much. But since writers interview seems to indicate than much more will be done about the true storylines (battle between 2 universes, mythology, first people, sam weiss, obsbserver, destructive weapon, characters arc/drama not involving love triangles, etc). The best part of the episode for me involved Walternate and the cortexifan trial but it was too short.

    I also love when they give great attention to the emotional and dramatic side of each episode cases. The rocker who lost his son, Milo and his sisters, the shapeshifter police man, the senator's wife and his family, etc. Even the cab driver in Olivia was a pretty cool character. It was also fun to see the antagonism between Fauxlivia and Newton when he was still alive. Having Fauxlivia killing the deft man, pushed by Newton, was some great part.

    But it was fun to see what's is going on in the alternate universe. I love the characters and love their interaction and friendly bantering. And Brandonate is one cold dude.

    It's a nice twist to have Walternate with enough moral fiber to refuse to do experiment on children as our Walter did. Who's the monster now?

    I felt like this episode was meant to have been aired right after Over There's Olivia returned home, rather than all this time later. I think when I re-watch the show I'll move it up and see how it flows.

    Very nice episode. What an ending though. I caught on very late.

    This was an excellent episode, but this love triangle thing is getting a bit out of hand. Loved seeing the alternate universe and the whole mad scientist thing. This universe's Walter wouldn't experiment on kids, wonder what that says about our Walter. Astrid's kinda awesome in alternate universe.

    I really would like to see if the observers are in the alternate universe. I'd be really curious if they weren't, might even suggest that they might have come from that universe.

    I think the only reason he wont experiment on children is because Peter was taken from him. We allready know how much importance he puts on kidnappings, perhaps he feels the same about all crimes against children. He wasnt able to protect his own child so he feels some responsibility to protect all others.

    I thinnk the observers are a creation of the first people. Lets just hope we get more seasons so we can find out

    With Walternate, the one line he won't cross doesn't offset all the other lines he is willing to cross.

    Excellent episode! Great to see what's up in the otherverse and catch up with 'familiar' characters. I really like how Fringe has set up a conflict between two sets of characters, but makes you sympathetic to both (or several of both, at least). Altstrid was as good as ever (would be handy to have one of her around indeed) and I definitely don't want Fauxlivia to survive any less than Olivia. Walternate of course is the main driving force between the cross universe attacks - most of the others on his side are pawns believing they're doing the right thing, but on the other hand, he's only in that position because of what Walter did, and Walternate isn't crossing a big line that Walter crossed which makes me a little more sympathetic to him. Just a little though. I have to wonder whether there's any chance of a happy ending for both universes - or at least most of them, or if one is destroyed there will be survivors. That's just pointless speculation at this point though.

    I'd be remiss if I didn't highlight the utter awesome cutenes of Julie McNiven's bug-girl character. Managed to be more adorable than Ginn in my opinion. Haig Sutherland's moment was nice too. Pity they're most likely just one-off guests.

    As for The Twist, I didn't see it until the mad scientist let on that Fauxlivia wasn't infected. Hoorah for a surprising pregnancy reveal! I usually spot those plots from a lightyear away.
