A pretty solid episode, but after last week's ridiculousness I think any regular episode would have seemed great. And of course they reveal the worst kept secret of who the Secretary from the other side is.

Very good episode! I'm very happy that Fringe is back in its true fringey form. ;) Very good episode. At the end I was expecting Walter to walk in with Olivia...instead we got...Walternate!!

Haha I totally called that one back when "Peter" aired! I knew... ...Walternate will come over eventually and that he's been the one behind plotting the "war of the worlds"!

Anyway it was nice to see a Peter-centirc ep, great performances as always.

I wonder what that device that makes all those strange sounds is all about...

It probably the same thing Walter was trying to build, maybe a side effect of it's scanning is it interferes with Peter's hearing.

Glad it didn't take long to reveal the worst kept secret though :)

Very good episode IMO. Yeah, I knew it would be Walternate at the end there, but it was still cool to see. I can't wait to see the two Walters face-off against one another.

If nothing else, this episode demonstrates the importance of knowing what you're eating, even if it is delicious strawberry flavored death.

Seems so tame after last week's episode. :P

So things are back to normal eh... Gruesome deaths, real dead bodies and AU characters. :D

Can't wait for the next episode to see how it all ends up for Peter.

Which side will he choose?

Which side will he choose?

It's an interesting question and I'm sure he'll be torn between two worlds. But our world is what he has known and lived in most of his life and that will count for something.
However, if does go over to the other side, it could still be interesting story telling... and we could have a better idea of what's been going on in the bleaker alt universe.
What I want to know is why the Observers thought it was so important for Peter to be around. It's amusing that they call him "the boy". I guess for them, he will always be a boy. ;)

I don't see him going to the other side. They killed all those innocent people to get to him, I doubt he will be happy about that.

Yep, he'll suddenly figure out why his memories of his childhood and that of Walter's never matched (Walter always remembering the little things like the coin flipping - Peter's memories were different in that he didn't remember his dad being around but mum taught him to flip the coin), then it'll dawn on him that his real dad is behind all these people's deaths, and he'll side with our side - this is maybe what the Observers mean when they say that he is important, perhaps if Peter rejects Walternate, they go back to their proper reality and the rift/door/collision becomes more stable/avoided.

In the end, I do think that very thing will sway Peter. The lengths "his" side went to in order to accomplish their goals.

IDK if his side went through much...I mean they didn't find him until he's in his 30s

No, I mean all the horrible acts they committed just in order to find him. For payback.

Really loved this one. It had a brilliant but eerie "Twin Peaks" feel to it all. And I also thought the female sheriff character was terrific.

It's funny, but of all the things that annoyed me about this episode was the fact that Krista the waitress said she was going to create a playlist for Peter because she wanted him to "stay awake out there". Then, when we listen to the first song, it's "Is there a ghost?" by Band of Horses, which starts out with a very soothing melody about how the singer "could sleep, I could slee-eep..."

Ooops... Peter just crashed the car. ;)
