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.

Trivia

The character of Roy is a reference to the late author David Foster Wallace. Roy's costuming, clothes, and makeup all resemble DFW's style. In the end of the episode, Roy's bandages echo DFW's trademark bandana. See more »

Amber
7 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Actually I had "misplaced" my review of S4E3 in here, so I have to make up something for this one, which is oen of my favourite classic Fringe eps.

Introducing "The Amber Protocol" - This ep slipped ideas used heavily in season 3 on "The Other Side" but we did not know about this seeing this 3rd ep of Fringe on the way in. Which just makes me respect the continuity of writing the producers keep for this show.

Also has first use of Walter's "Headset" although they had to drill holes in a guys head to use it the first time. Other questions arose in this ep, some of them still unanswered.
