Fringe And Those We’ve Left Behind S04E06 (Fox)

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.

Peter is finally out of jail, but Walter still won’t see him. He’s convinced that he needs to suffer for what he did before.

The code for this week is LIVING.

Dunham comes to see Peter in holding. She says that something strange is going on with time and they think that he’s part of it. Peter was dreaming of a perfect day with Olivia in a park.

People in Boston are reporting time loops and temporal anomalies. Shortly before Peter arrived, they experienced their own anomalies. Dunham thinks that Peter is the cause. She’s taking him to Massive Dynamic to run more tests.

They are called to another event. There was a flash fire without a fire. During the duration of the event, the mother reported that her child went back to infancy. There was a fire here four years ago. The whole place flashed back to four years ago. Walter is refusing to have anything to do with Peter. Broyles wants Walter on it. He says that Peter is a Fringe event. Walter examines that Peter isn’t the cause of the temporal anomalies.

Peter thinks that this has something to do with time displacement. When he came back, he somehow damaged the space time continuum. The temporal anomalies are just going to get exponentially worse over time.

There have been 56 reported time slips. Olivia tells Peter that for weeks before he appeared, Walter was having visions of him. He also showed up in Olivia’s dreams every night.

Lee tells Dunham that another event happened. Peter grabs some stuff and then experiences a time jump. Then, Peter experiences a time loop. The events seem to focus on 4 years ago. Peter discovers that there is neutron radiation, which isn’t natural. It was caused by someone.

We see some guy using the temporal tech in order to revisit a time when his wife was well. He is using the work of his wife. Each pulse gives him 47 minutes with his wife.

When he sees the cops in his neighborhood, he tells his wife about it. He built it for his wife. It’s called a time chamber.

The culprits are using a neutron pulse. Walter thinks that the source of these time slips is located inside a Fibonacci spiral.

One of the Fringe people gets disintegrated when he approaches the suspect’s house. It’s a time bubble. They need a mobile Faraday cage.

Walter gets Astrid’s name right for the first time. That was strange. He puts together a portable Faraday cage.

Peter gets into the house. He convinced Broyles that he needed to send someone with a science background. Peter is knocked out by Raymond.

Kate agrees to shut it down in exchange for immunity for Raymond. Raymond is mad, and Kate realizes it. He asks her to write down the completely equation. She writes down something different so that it sabotages his next attempts.

Kate completely erased her work so that Raymond could never use it again.

Broyles allows Peter to move into a house that is owned by his father on campus.
