Very nice episode last night.:) There were definitely a few twists I did not see coming in this one.

Yes there were some twists. Biggest one for me : I thought Walter had mixed up some sort of antidote and wanted to release it, so the virus wouldn't work. I would have never thought, that he would actually kill that man.

Interesting though, that neither Olivia nor Peter catched one detail. With the mad scientist making a version to attack Walter, Peter would have been affected too. Just like with the family in the beginning of the episode.
Seems like 'Alternate Universe' means 'alternate genetic makeup' as well.

Just hope they reveal how the Nazi scientist was able to not age. Somehow I thought of the Observers....

It's the obvious linkage and now that particular angle's got me wondering if Walter is really Walter and not Robert...

Anyway... what an intriguing episode. Very dark with Walter fighting fire with fire, raising all kinds of ethical issues. I am also eager to see how this story links up with the overall arc.
I could see immediately looking at the mysterious bi-spectacled figure that he was German and probably a neo Nazi especially when most of the wedding party were wearing skull caps.
I loved finding out more about the Bishop family tree... interesting that the episode was about largely about families... wedding, family history, shared genetic traits
Personally I think S2 is quite sensational... Fringe is one of the least formulaic shows around. It goes into all kinds of interesting places that one doesn't quite expect from the obligatory horror opening.
Last week I wandered into a Fringe forum and was very surprised to read comments about how the show has gone down in some people's estimation. I for one think that S2 is so good and certainly better than the first half of S1.

IDK if I agree with what you have spoilered. For some reason that seems to obvious...and this show is by far not obvious! ;)

I really enjoyed the episode! :D I was very surprised with how Walter solved the problem!

I think Walter worked out quiet early who the guy was because of the off the hand comment about his DNA ageing him at 100+.

Nah, the Nazi's experimented with it, it was in another one of Walter's throw away comments.

I work in pharmaceuticals, and trust me this kind of biological warfare is well within our grasp, which is very concerning! And with the appeal such a weapon has, what with religo-racial cleansing being a hot topic for many extremists, its appearance over the coming decades is almost assured.

I love having the scientific education that I do because it really allows me to grapple possibilities that fringe science as presented in the show can have. Of course, it also makes me cringe at bull**** science like the face-changing devices seen earlier in the season.

Walter driving the car was hilarious. And he's also playing Cupid. How much would you pay to see Walter in his purple suit.

Another glimpse into my favorite dysfunctional family, what other layers will be revealed? Walters dark side came out again with him killing the Nazi guy


Was it Walters father that wrote the ZFT Manifesto and not Walter?

Walter would've been a kid during the Nazi's rule...and a young kid at that.
