A marine biologist, an insurance salesman and a teen-aged boy find their lives fundamentally changed by the emergence of a new, and often dangerous, species of sea life, while government agents work to keep the affair under wraps.
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. Written by

The final confrontation is supposed to take place at South Station, which is a real transit hub in Boston. However, the building shown is considerably smaller and different in architectural style from South Station. See more »
Well this episode's plot is as unbelievable as they get and by making it like that it also has some dumb flaws. A guy who is overhearing and seeing things that will happen through non-existing frequency that's been made in secrecy for "special government needs". Sounds pretty dull and funny? Well it was also, bunch of people making transactions, dressed in suit and a tie, dragging suitcases along town and of course they don't speak English, they speak Latin! Flaws are, if that random dude that was under some experiments many years ago can overhear what the "bad guys" are saying why can't they overhear his conversations also, sorry if i'm mistaken and it's a one-way channel!
Episode contains some witty moments but in general it still isn't as good as i hoped it would be. This is only the third episode of 'Fringe' and already they are making some dull plots that just aren't catchy for a show of this thematic, they could be making much more interesting and intriguing stuff and i hope they are heading towards that direction.
