I gotta tell you, I’ve had what was going with Fringe completely wrong. I’d been thinking, along with the characters on the show, that there’s some sort of war coming. That might well be true, but there’s something else that’s going on. I can’t believe it didn’t occur to me until just now.
So, Walter grabbed Peter from a parallel universe when he was a kid, right?
Do you honestly think that the Walter from the parallel universe would just let that stand? He’d do everything, and I mean everything, he could to get Peter back!
That’s why the people on the other side are trying to get through to our side. Parallel Universe Walter wants to get Peter back.
It’s pretty likely that the “Secretary” on the bridge is Parallel Universe Walter.
