They throw the stand-alones in to make it more attractive to syndication...that's all a money play....
Wow, what an episode!
MASSIVE POTENTIAL SPOILER ALERT!!!!
Ok, with that said, not sure, but I think we just got a MAJOR clue last night, with two little words...."I'm sorry"...said by the shapeshifter
Because it all falls into place now. He said this to Walter, implying that in the other Universe, this is who he reports to...(i.e., Mr.
Secretary)...which then answers my question...
Why do the ones from the other side WANT a war?
Think about it, Walter in the alternate Universe, has his son kidnapped, by seemingly another "him". What would he do? Easy, he'd devote every
ounce of his intellect on making a doorway. This is why there was only one man (Walter) coming through on the bridge, versus an army. I suspect the
other Walter may have worked more closely to that side's military, and thus had to integrate it with a military agenda for the funding, etc. (i.e.
why they want war)....
Just need to see where Bell is on this, either as an ally or an enemy.... My guess is really neither, he just wants to prevent the war, and feels he
can do more about it on that side. But, the other Walter's rage is likely driving the war effort.
Too bad our Walter didn't get to explain to Peter about saving his life...that certainly changed my ideas about how the relationships would play out.
My guess now is that Olivia will be the one that catches up to him, to explain about saving his life.
Great episode though!
