It’s fitting that this show will premiere on Fox, since this was the network of the X-Files. Fringe has got much in common with the X-Files, yet it is different. Fringe is the latest show of wunderkind J.J. Abrams. Like most new shows, the pilot was leaked on the internet a few weeks ago.

Just like a few other shows, like True Blood, I’m happily surprised by Fringe. The production values are great and I’m enjoying it a lot. A lot of money has been pumped into this show, and it just looks fabulous. The protagonists are also an interesting bunch. There isn’t much more that we learn of the Pattern, but Massive Dynamics is most definitely deeply connected with those events, even though they aren’t sharing their information with Agent Dunham.

I think that this show takes a few common elements from Alias, especially for all the things that concerned the mystic scholar Milo Rambaldi. The same kind of esoteric science is involved in this show. It’s done very well. I’d actually like to see this type of mystic science have more of an impact on the show. It would suit the show very well. A bit of the supernatural wouldn’t be bad either.

Fringe is one of the best shows on TV right now. It’s getting better and better, and I like it maybe a bit more than X-Files. Why? There are less filler episodes. Most episodes deal with the mythology of the show.

Season finale of Fringe that takes place completely in 2026. It’s kind of amazing if you ask me.

The code for this week is NO MORE.

It’s May 20th, 2026. Peter gets patched up. Agent Dunham comes to see him. She’s Olivia’s niece Ella. Olivia thinks that it’s Moreau and the End of Dayers. Moreau is a terrorist. Moreau is busy planting another device at an opera.

The opening theme is different. Peter, Olivia, and Elle arrive on scene. They find one of the devices that didn’t explode. Fringe HQ is in Boston. Peter has got no idea what the thing does. He wants to show it to Walter. Walter is being detained. A wormhole recently opened in central park from the late Palaeozoic era. They ambered it over. The device is some kind of light bomb. The End of Dayers use them on soft spots in this universe to tear holes into it. They are trying to accelerate the End of Days.

Peter goes to see Senator Broyles. He wants Walter. Broyles is against this. Broyles has got a bionic eye. Walter is in prison because of the harm he has caused by opening the door to the other side. People hate him deeply. They allow Walter out temporarily. It looks like Walter is partially paralyzed. He must have had a stroke of some kind. Olivia shows Walter that she’s learned to control her telekinetic abilities.

Moreau is getting his orders from Walternate. He wants to open the wormhole in Central Park. He wants to destroy this world. We learn that the End of Days was triggered when they activated the machine. The two worlds were intricately linked. One simply cannot exist without the other. Walternate came over to try to save his world, but ended up stuck here when the other universe died. There was a trial and Walter was put on trial. He was found guilty and jailed.

Peter and Olivia don’t have any children because Olivia doesn’t want to bring in a child into a dying world. Walter wakes Peter up. He’s found something. They try and detect Strontium 90 and find a campsite. An agent finds a key and gives it to Peter, who hides it from Olivia before going to Reiden Lake. He finds Walternate waiting for him. He left the key for Peter. Walternate came over at the end, when his universe was dying to ask for help. He ended up stuck here. Walternate blames Peter for destroying his universe. He plans on destroying this world bit by bit. Walternate isn’t even there. He was using a hologram. He threatens killing someone Peter loves.

Moreau plants a device in Central Park. Olivia arrives to investigate. The amber has been compromised. The worm hole is opening up.

Walternate steps out and shoots Olivia in the head.

They have a sort of Viking-like funeral for Olivia, putting her casket on a small raft made out of logs and setting it alight.

Elle brings Walter back to his lab.

Walter comes to see Peter. He says that he can do it all over again. The pieces of the machine were buried millions of years ago in the past. Walter sent the pieces of the machine back in time using the worm hole.

He wants to bring Peter’s consciousness forward to show him what would happen if he starts the machine, so that he is forewarned.

Peter goes back into the past. He has been in the machine 60 seconds ago. Olivia goes up to the machine. Peter does something, like bringing both universes in sync, and steps out. Peter says that he’s torn holes in both universes and they lead to this room, so that they can build a bridge between their worlds. Peter winks away in mid-sentence. The others don’t notice this.

There is a conclave of Observers outside. They say that they don’t remember Peter because he never existed.
