Storyline

Agent Dunham and the Bishops investigate the deaths of a group of people who died from radiation poisoning in a diner. They believe the source of the radiation was Emily Kramer, a young woman who had vanished two weeks previously and was probably being held against her will. When another young woman, Claire Williams, disappears the investigators believe someone may be conducting experiments. Dr. Bishop believes the emanations from Kramer were microwaves and she may in fact have been developed as a walking weapon. They trace the research to the head of a pharmaceutical firm David Esterbrook, who has a history of promoting off the wall ideas. Nina Sharp has information and strikes a bargain with Peter Bishop.

"Microwave for 30 Seconds!"
12 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Emily Kramer (Maria Dizzia) is dumped out in the middle of the street by Hepa-Suited guys in white. She finds her way into a small Café and is given Soup. A congenial Police Officer (William Hill from Law and Order) tries to befriend her, but she reacts and he has to cuff her, which pisses her off even more. So she turns the Café into the equivalent of the inside of a Microwave Oven and Nukes all of the people inside- but the process leaves her with an unimaginable headache!

Walter and Peter discover she had been diagnosed with a fatal, un-treatable disease that somehow is in remission, due to tiny radioactive particles in the blood. Dr Sanjay Patel (Alok Tewari) had been hired privately to make a designer cure, and he had succeeded so well that a Drug Company decided to abuse the situation. And so we get to see another of those cute little wrinkly mice get exploded.

Olivia tracks down another woman with the same disease, who was friends with Emily, although her husband denies it. The woman is in a secret Lab being injected...

"This Red medicine will cure your disease - This Blue medicine will make you... Special" and here we again hear the word "Special" which has been a Tenet of Fringe from the beginning.

This ep Also introduces the relationship between Olivia and her Step-Father.
