Or, since Nimoy is semi-retired from on-camera work, are they writing themselves into a bit of a corner? “Once you kind of realize the extent of everything, it will probably become clear why we’re not [writing ourselves into a corner],” Wyman answered, cryptically.


My guess: Bell has soul-magneted himself into Walter, and both he and Walter are inside Walter now. (Which would explain Walter's personality change; and Walter's rage toward Bell is a cover-up.)

The EPs stopped short of confirming buzz that Season 5 would heavily involve the year 2036 seen in Episode 19: “That future is important to our storytelling, but it’s the not the be all and end all.”


My guess: Alternating episodes of present (or near-future, ie 2016) and future (2036). One set of episodes explains what happened to result in "Letters of Transit," the other set shows them fighting back in 2036.

“Seth is spectacular and awesome … but as for his standing going forward, to say anything about that would be also to reveal things that are coming ahead,”


My guess: The Alt-U will be seen again, either in the near-future or the far-future.

Those guys really know how to say something without saying anything at all and stirring the pot. I eat it up though! Love our showrunners!

A Robin Williams guest appearance would definitely boost ratings, which would help ensure we see the entirety of season 5.

There seem to be some either believing or hoping that there will be 22 episodes to Season 5... but that isn't going to happen.

Also, Fox is not going to yank the show off the air before the 13 episodes have been run. (They certainly could have done that to the show THIS season but that possibility never even came up.)

We will get 13 episodes, and done.

That said, it's certainly to Fringe's advantage to get better ratings even during a final lame-duck season. Going out strong is always preferable, because you never know what creative opportunities can develop even though a show is going off the air.

I think they would have to come up with one method that requires little personal screen time for Leonard Nimoy. Voice overs seem to work for him or to have Bell appear in a new form. I'm leaning towards a biomechanical form this time until a true human host or form can be found. This would explain the human shape shifters. This would also explain why Bell could be in cahoots with Jones until Bell got what he wanted, then he could turn on Jones. Bell did something similar to Walternate in the previous timeline.

I'm concerned for Olivia. She may be a casualty or a sacrifice for this new war coming. It is what she was created for and we do not know what type of 'programming' Olivia has been given. The "man x" could be that program in some form. He was in her mind and may be her target and in assassinating him may cost her her life maybe by overuse of her powers.

So, is she already P.G., or just talking about a nursery for the hell of it? OUT WITH IT, WOMAN!!!

ETA: Isn't it cool that we already know whose potential arrival is being discussed?

I think I caught my breath when Olivia says "nursery"

Of course, these cruel writers also had to have Olivia say "only if I'm dead"

Oh, warm and fuzzy feelings. Which means that something horrible is about to happen. But I love that Olivia can be all cute and relaxed with Peter.

Also...is there a difference between a bedroom and a nursery?

Best way in the world to get an audience excited about a TV couple's pregnancy (esp since TV fans tend to treat babies as though they have cooties)- show us her grown up and AWESOME first.

My interpretation of the scene is that it's her telling him that she WANTS to have a baby, not that she is pregnant. I think their reaction would have been stronger than to just shrug and answer their phones. :-)

The scariest clip was the cast interview clip. When John says he read the script and said, "What? You can't do that to people. . ." What does that mean? Who has to die/needs to be sacrificed/do we have to lose, etc? I don't want to lose Peter again, and I certainly don't want Olivia to actually die. I have a feeling that after part 2, I might be sobbing in a corner somewhere. Why does that keep happening to me with this show?

Gawd, I think I'm going to implode, either from fan girlish delight at all the adorable domesticity or in sheer terror over what sort of angst they're going to rain down upon us. And I absolutely love them for it! ;)

I have watched that clip too damn much, but it's just so adorable. Peter's living his domestic-bliss dream: lolling around in bed with Olivia and the Sunday paper. And Olivia, so relaxed!!! that she's feigning sleep but still alert enough to make smartass remarks about real estate...and then she turns sentimental and sweet on a dime. I'm such a dork, because I LOVE THEM.

For me, the best part of that clip is Josh Jackson's facial expressions. That boy could teach a master class on face acting.

Medford=congested, shoulder-to-shoulder living
Holliston=former farmland-turned-white collar suburb for commuters to boston
Woburn (Peter said Weburn?)=kind of grimy small city. No offense to those who love it, but I'd want to die, too.
Lexington=woodsy, monied, understated, historical suburb

More 'Liv's type of place?

Personally, I picture them in Cambridge or maybe Hyde Park... old houses, sidewalks, trees, lots of parks and street fairs. Dare to dream.
