Fringe – The Road Not Taken

Great episode tonight!

Harris buys it in a very appropriate way, Nina Sharp appears to have been assassinated, and Walter walks off with The Observer! Crazy!

Anyway, back to the main story for a minute – I think it’s pretty clear that the organization (ZTF or not) that’s doing this has been doing two things: 1) Experimenting on new weapons and 2) Making people into weapons. Sometimes two in one, like in tonight’s episode.

I liked the storyline on pyrokinesis and not being able to control it. Much better than last episode. Those blood and guts things… Gah! I thought it was pretty great that the girl turned the tables on Harris at the end, when it looked like he was going to let her explode.

Never did like that guy.

Another thing I didn’t like was the sound recording from the broken glass… Really?

Now, the question is – Was he the only one in the FBI working for ZTF? I’ve always had questions about Charlie… could he be involved too?

OK, back to the big, big question… Walter seemed to not be incredibly surprised by The Observer’s appearance. We know they’ve met before, and if I recall correctly, The Observer saved Peter from drowning. Could there have been an agreement made back when that happened? Save Peter, and at some later date Walter would have to go and do something with The Observer? Sure sounds like it to me. (Maybe this was all spelled out earlier, but I don’t remember this, so please let me know in the comments section).

What did you think of tonight’s show?
