So we got Peter back and we got lots of answers too, hurray!
1 - Our Fringe team have no idea who the observers are.
WALTER: That lake where we crossed over was frozen. The ice broke. We fell through. I tried to hold on to him... but he drowned.
PETER: The Observer didn't pull us out of the lake that night? Well, that must be it, Walter.
ASTRID: What's an Observer?
2 - Olivia and Rachel lived with Nina Sharp after their mother died.
AGENT LEE: Okay. You -- you're gonna have to do better than that. Why does Nina Sharp have your photo in her office?
OLIVIA: After our mother died, my sister and I were due to go into the foster system. Instead, Nina pulled some strings, and... we went to live with
AGENT LEE: So the Acting C.E.O. of one of the richest companies in... the world - was your Nanny?
OLIVIA: Something like that.
3 - William Bell is in fact dead in this timeline as well, or at least that is what Malcolm Truss believes.
4 - I am a little suspicious that Truss's work was shut down. Is regrowing skin tissue really that much more controversial than everything else
Massive Dynamic is doing?
MALCOLM TRUSS: I never thought I'd say this, but... I wish William Bell were alive... just so he could see you. I truly believed that the work that
we were doing was going to change the world. And just like that... Bell shut down the project. And all he could say was, "Some things are not ours to
tamper with. Some things... are God's."
5 - The new shapeshifters are upgraded and much more difficult to identify. I'm going to take a guess and say that one of them will infiltrate the
PETER: They're the perfect infiltrators. By transforming their DNA, they can become anyone. They perfect this technology, and they can get close to
us. They could replace any one of us. And short of performing surgery to find those memory disks, you would have absolutely no way of knowing.
6 - Once more, I don't understand the idea that cellular replication is such a terrible thing, aside from what we see it has been used for. It can do
great things. Although, I am brought back to our first introduction of Agent Lee from the other side. Olivia and the other cortexiphan kids crossed
over, and one of them combusted, causing severe burns over Lincoln's body. It was probably alternate Truss's research into cellular replication that
saved his life.
MALCOLM TRUSS: It's my fault. "Some things are not ours to tamper with."
OLIVIA: Excuse me?
MALCOLM TRUSS: It's something someone said to me once. I didn't understand it at the time. But I do now.
7 - Olivia appears to have a bout of deja-vu at the end. Olivia was having deja-vu in season 1 as well, but she was apparently slipping in and out of
the alternate universe somehow.
8 - More shapeshifters are coming.
