The Parasite and the Dead Man
22 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

While having a meeting with Philip Broyles, Frankfurt based FBI Agent Mitchell Loeb apparently has a heart attack. He goes to the hospital and when the doctors open his chest, they find a weird creature wrapped around his heart. Agent Dunham, Peter and his father Dr. Bishop are summoned by Broyles and Dr. Bishop believes the creature is a parasite developed by man. Dunham travels to Frankfurt to interview a man called David Robert Jones, whose name was found in a Loeb's report, and is imprisoned by the German government. However the man imposes a condition to give the antidote to Loeb: to ask one question to his partner Joseph Smith in Massachussetts. But the problem is The FBI has just killed Smith in a raid. How can Dunham get the answer from a dead man?

"In Which We Meet Mr. Jones" is another strange episode of Fringe, with a weird parasite wrapped around a man's heart; communication with a dead man; and unsolved mysteries.As usual, Dr. Bishop steals the show with his desire for mint while researching an intriguing case. But the lead story is entertaining. My vote is eight.
