Yup another fringe-tastic story about the future! And this time they are doing it NWO style!

It seems like Fringe's episode last night was something where the writers decided that they needed to do something with the Observers so they said, "Why don't we make them evil?"

So, with a sudden taste of NWO fascism added to their personality (or is that just the water they are drinking?) They become evil and "purge" the human race of all people who do not want to submit to their will. Why? They destroyed the planet in the year 2609 and have returned to take over now. (crappy excuse I think)

Peter's daughter(?) yes daughter, Henrietta is working with a guy named Simon Foster (call out to Henry Ian Cusick from Lost) and they are apparently part of a Resistance movement to overthrow the corporatist fascist mind reading evil observers. Fringe's intro was again changed. Words like individuality, education, imagination, freedom, due process, private thoughts, and free will! With images of jail cells and concentration camps mixed in.

You get a full fledged movie intro about why the observers are now here in star wars esque fashion with words sprawling across the screen explaining this new found future viewers find themselves witnessing.

There is loads of new tech which is dubbed black market tech. I saw at least two sonic screw drivers (Doctor Who) in there, anti-matter, Holograms, Neural transfers, and Walter's Jesus like ability to heal Nina Sharp's hand.

Did broyles have a tattoo on him? Or is he an observer? Something I always questioned. Anyway, those who do submit to the Observers are marked as so many conspiracy theorists believe will happen in the future under this type of NWO system. So yes, they didn't even leave that fact out.

Another call to Doctor Who is that when Walter was freed from the Amber he apparently stuffed William Bell somewhere out of the way and only took his hand. (actually that also relates to Torchwood as well!)

Something else that puzzled me was that when you had Broyles question Widmark(?) about why he has such a crappy job, the observer replied, "He likes animals." So is it too early to suggest that Widmark is David Robert Jones?

I honestly cannot wait for future eps of fringe. This show is the only creative endeavor to come out of hollywood that loves to play with the impossible and has gone to the future on multiple accounts. I think they are creating a fine NWO scenario here, the only critique I have at this moment in time, is that how this will all fill into the main story line. The main story line and this seasons mythology in itself has already been ridiculously well done!

Although I may be a critic when it comes to real conspiracies and the real NWO. My hats go off to Fringe and their creative staff for even thinking about this sort of stuff and making it visually stimulating to the mind and for allowing our eyes to view it!

That episode was one of the best in the last season. It covered the nwo subject really well.

Although it was just an opression of free will and free speach, we don't see people being slaves and deliberately poor.

One of the best subject were the so called "loyalists" that kissed ass in order to live a good life, if a nwo becomes reality, we will see a lot of that..

It was a good episode indeed.
My bro tells me there are 2 more in this series-but they may get cancelled after that,they don't know yet,so they have made two endings for this season-1 will be a "wrap up" in case the show does get cancelled he rekons.

I hope it does not get cancelled,I will really miss it if it is.

I won't get access to this season till September. Hope it doesn't get cancelled.

Its rare for a series i like to live this long.

It gave me the creeps. That being said, I liked it-I'm always a fan of future progression stories.
Interesting-in the corner was #fight the future, which is the same phrase used in the X-Files,
what is it about that message TPTB want drilled into our subconcious?

Where was the"fight the future" reference?I missed that.
I love the way they link to other shows-Remember when Walter was wearing the old style 3D glasses,and he said he got them sent to him by "Dr Jacobi?"





Twin peaks reference,for those who didn't know.

Have to admit, I'm not in love with this new twist. Where's Anna Torv?

Did they just stop persuing the bad guy, David Robert Jones, or whatever his name is?

When Peter reappeared after being erased by the observers, shouldn't it have been his goal to get everyone's memory of him back?

It was embedded in the screen like the station watermarks, not in the show itself. Part of the twitter marketing I'm assuming, still, a curious choice of phrase.

There should be 3 episodes left, 22 in a season.

To the OP... I've watched the episode and its very interesting! Reminded me somewhat of the Half Life (video game) universe. Humans under draconian control, vast population reduction etc etc... I believe a new world order would be a better option than invasion from the future!

I definitely didn't see this episode coming! Yet another tangent to think about, if I'm honest its getting tiresome. How many times is William Bell going to resurrect? Is this another timeline? Where is Dunham? So many questions.

However I'm still on the edge of my seat for the conclusion of this next week. Who would have thought the observers were going to invade?

Dont forget Walter has to survive in order to build the machine, write the manuscript and send the machine back in time.

It's implied that Olivia is dead in the future. Etta was wearing a fired bullet around her neck, and Walter mentioned William Bell betraying her somehow. We also know she was going to be killed by the man on the zeppelin, from a few seasons ago.

Also the original observer, September said he had seen all possible futures and in all she must die. There's the twist though, she won't. The team will save her somehow prompting the observers to give up because they find they're fallable after all. IMO it will all end once Peter gets himself back into the machine.

I have just been trying to find info on if season 5 will go ahead-Its looking good,from TV Line:


TV Line has upgraded Fringe in its "2012 Renewal Scorecard" from "Could go either way" to "A safe bet".

www.fringetelevision.com...

I also found this:


Speaking at WonderCon this past weekend, Fringe executive producers J.H. Wyman and Jeff Pinkner revealed that not only would they like to have one more season to wrap the series up, they also said that if Fox doesn’t renew Fringe for another season, they’ll be heading to comic books for season 5.

screenrant.com...

Both links from March 2012.

Either way I will be happy-I love graphic novels,although they take ages to produce.

I hope this means they won't try to cram in a proper "ending" in this season,as I hate it when shows have to do that if they find out they get cancelled..
