A compelling continuation, and a warm welcome back for Fringe.
20 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Early in the morning at Harvard University Dr. Bishop experiments with a caterpillar, changing it's color, Peter's obviously grossed out then receives a call about Olviia's disappearance. Contiuing where we left off with our last episode Olivia finds her self in this strange lab where she is being experimented by a group of mysterious men. With a plea for water Olivia takes action and wipes out the doctors experimenting on her as well as a few guards. She grabs a weapon, some evidence, a jacket and a cell phone and calls Broyles who is informing all of the agents within headquarters to go on search party for her. Olivia runs outside and tells here she is. Olivia quickly digs small hole nearby and places her new found evidence in and buries it. The FBI arrives but she is taken in for custody. Olivia wakes up on a hospital bed where she encounters a ghost from her past-Harris. Years ago Olivia had him convicted for the molesting of two young girls. Now that he's back in black Harris has been put with the privilege to evaluate operation Fringe with such a panicked Pentagon on his head. Olivia and Harris do not see eye to eye whatsoever and he will not treat her with much respect regardless if she did her job well or even tried her best. Back at headquarters Olivia sees more familiar face,s her sister and her daughter who have come to stay at her house for a while till they get their stuff together. Olivia meets up with Peter and Walter and shows them her evidence, meanwhile at a local university a college professor has a stroke and collapses onto he floor where some sort of slug creature comes out of his body. The Fringe team investigates, traditionally giving the evidence to Walter and Peter to study, mostly Walter and Olivia to find who is behind it. For some apparent reason she believes that the people behind this have to do with the people who abducted her. Problems could get worse for Olivia when one of her kidnappers, Mitch starts to show up at headquarters all fine and dandy. Now Olivia suspects him of being apart of the organization who took her. Her clues take her to another professor but after Peter tells her the facts they know of the creature and how it takes it's hosts, she is already too late for that one man. Olivia then takes herself to Mitch's house where she has some breakfast with his wife, and does some sleuthing on her own. Little does she know his wife calls him and he tells her to grab his nearest gun and kill Olivia. Agen Francis and Peter collaborate and track the phone connection between Olivia, and Mitch and his wife and find out about the whole thing. A standoff then occurs between Olivia and Mitch's wife, it ends with her killing her. Mitch drive under a bridge somewhere a few hours later and he is arrested, later he is interrogated by Olivia. Mitch refuses to talk till he sees his wife, Olivia shows him a photo of his wife, what's left of her. Micth freaks out and breaks out into tears and tells Olivia about "the plan" but not so much, here we have our "He and his people are doing evil deeds for good reasons" moment and gives Olivia the talk that she can't trust who she's with. Mitch is taken away and Olivia questions his words, but Peter tells her he's just a crazy lunatic...

At first, I felt this episode had too much going for it, but in the end it all seemed to work out together solidly.

The story structure was fine.

The thought provoking message worked, though we've kind of seen it before in earlier episode,s though not quite as better as it handled here to say the least.

The conflicts and the suspense was fantastically well handled.

The acting was good but I felt Anan Torv tried too hard this time with her American accent.

A very enjoyable and compelling returning hour for Fringe, can't wait till next week...

8/10.
