Storyline

The team investigates a young man, Roy McComb, who seems to have the ability to predict major incidents before they happen. When they search his apartment, they find drawings and models of a variety of attacks, including the flight from Germany. In the most recent incident, a bus load of people are gassed and a bag stolen from an undercover narcotics agent. Dr. Bishop recalls working on experiments with his old friend, the founder of Massive Dynamics, that could explain what is happening with McComb. When Agent Dunham visits Nina Sharp to get more information on Massive Dynamics' possible role in these experiments, she realizes that she has not been fully briefed on what is going on.

Both an intense and fun episode.
24 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An old human subject for one of Dr. Bishop's old experiments is experiencing bigger issues than what as expected as he can now predict the upcoming tragedies in the world, including the flight which brought us here in the first place of this whole journey( the one in the pilot) and the Fringe team's latest assignment, the bus that was filled with a chemical and killed them all, and making them still as sticks. They use this young man for another experiment to prevent the next tragedy, which also has a connection with the bus incident. There is also an excellent twist at the end of it, won't give it away though...

This was a pretty interesting and engaging episode, but not my favorite so far of the season 1. However, I really liked the additional relationship and character development for both Peter Bishop and his father Dr. Walter Bishop.

Can't wait for the next episode, however I hope to be much more engaged with it than this one. But perhaps it was partially because of myself, I was sort of tired at the time I watched it. Gotta watch it again...
