I was talking about this episode of Fringe with a friend, and we both agreed: This sure felt like an X-Files episode. Remote farm house, creepy creature. At least it wasn’t a repeat of that “Mom and the boys” X-Files…. that one still creeps me out. If you have no idea which episode I’m talking about: good. You really, REALLY don’t want to remember that.
How this episode fits into the overall story, I have no idea. Heck, The Observer (pointed out above) barely made an appearence. The only thing that makes sense is that the doctor in this story is involved with the overall plot, because of his research. I mean, why else would The Observer be there?
Not much else to say about this episode other than: Quit it with the references Walter is making to Peter and the empty grave. We KNOW what happened. Walter has better (and funnier) things to ramble on about.
Overall, an “OK” episode, but not as good as the season premiere.
