Fringe – August


Thursday’s “Fringe” was one of the best of the season. I think it makes one thing pretty clear: The Observers are third party to this whole “war” between our dimension and the dimension that Olivia traveled to, to see William Bell. They’ve been observing our world for quite some time, and apparently have a non-interference rule, which seems to be as strictly adhered to as Kirk ever did with the Prime Directive (yes, that was sarcasm).

A couple of points:

1) They messed up something that caused them to have to correct it by helping Walter get Peter back. What they did, we have no idea. However, this could very well be what the original catalyst was that caused the people in the “other” earth to realize we existed.

2) Apparently being “important” plays some role in the decisions of what The Observers…well… observe. Interesting twist to who the kidnapped girl became “important”, but a bit unsatisfying at the same time. Maybe it was the whole “I love her” thing that didn’t ring true.

3) I LOVED the way August snagged those bullets out of the air. That was great!
