If this is somehow what happens as Jones has said, in some way (see above), it will likely be that those who have no doppelgangers (like Jones) will remain unscathed. Which sets the stage for a DRJ vs. PB deathmatch!
, I like the way you think. Maybe DRJ's lack of a double (that we know of) is his reason to believe he'd be unscathed by the merge. I do agree that he probably wants to be the new God of a new united universe but I still don't quite understand why he thinks that tinkering with the machine will leave him unaffected. What sets him apart? Does he have a device? A physiological difference? And, by the way, I say "unaffected" but we also don't know what that effect will be, what the majority of the people will experience, what DRJ wants to do to them (apart from turning the surviving humans to porcubats).
Hell, maybe DRJ will turn himself into a porcubat too and after the merge those creatures are the only ones who survive. I would be totally satisfied with that explanation, by the way. That's the level of detail I'd like, nothing too extreme but something that could justify certain events. This season has been pretty vague with the "science" and I'm getting antsy. Like, we're practically getting Ghost Whisperer-style explanations, "fate" and "special baby" and "true love". Let the porcubats be a beacon of sci-fi awesomeness.
Nina falling for Faux's "trick" required my suspension of disbelief. It is the oldest cop trick in the book! Maybe they don't have cop/lawyer shows OverThere?
Seriously. Even if it wasn't a huge cliche, I'd still expect better from Nina who's always totally secretive.
Maybe I'm just a softy, but I didn't have that problem. He'd said previously that this Peter was going to be the closest he'd get to being able to connect with his son. I don't really see it as much different than people starting to call a step-mom "mom", or the like. I was was touched by it.
Ugh. I did not like Walter so cheerfully referring to Peter as "my son". It just seemed so off. And fanservice-y?....
I don't know, the fact is that in the Blue universe Peter also wasn't Walter's biological son (or, well, DNA-wise he was, but you know what I mean) but Walter raised him since he was a child so "son" was true. But Amber Walter? Who met Peter, like, a month ago? And whose son is dead? And has been dead for over 2 decades? With no replacement? I liked that Amber Walter was distant at first and I also think that it's natural that he would warm up to Peter; in fact, the other week, when he gave him all the presents he had been "getting" for his own Peter, I thought that was sweet, you could see Peter's presence was healing Walter. That level of warmth/comfort/bonding was beautiful. But "son"? I think it's a little too soon for that. Unless it's one of those "Blue emotions are bleeding into the Amber verse" things. Which is too mushy for me to appreciate, frankly.
I just miss Blue Walter. And I don't know why Peter doesn't miss him too. If I suddenly found myself with a different version of my parents who had never met me I'd be pretty devastated, even if they were nice to me/learned to love me. It's not the same. If 'son' was a way for the writers to tell the audience "look, it's fine, they all love each other again" it kind of had the opposite effect on me.
