Trivia

When the shapeshifter enters his next "body"'s apartment, The X-Files (1993) is briefly visible on the television. The clip shown is one from the episode "Dreamland," which like this episode of Fringe (2008) is about characters who switch bodies as a result of cryptotechnology. See more »

Goofs

The nurse is shot by Agent Francis and is lying dead when the others arrive. Later we see the shape shifter Francis dumping the real body of Charlie Francis in the incinerator. this adds up to three bodies, 1 nurse and two Agent Francis', 1 too many. Either that or the FBI did not secure the scene and account for the not dead inter-dimensional shape shifting soldier. See more »

Quotes

Peter Bishop: Olivia, I need to ask you something.
Agent Olivia Dunham: Sure.
Peter Bishop: 'Einai Kalytero Anthropo Apo Ton Patera Toy' - you said that to me, just after you woke up. Do you remember?

Son of a shapeshifter!
19 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A shapeshifting supersoldier from another dimension tries to stop Olivia from attending an important meeting. He injures her but does not kill her, and is then ordered to go back and finish her before being allowed to return home. The basic premise of this season opener is derived from that cult classic, THE HIDDEN, as the soldier keeps changing physical identities with various unsuspecting people. This show tries so hard to be the new X-FILES, but the simplistic writing and amateur acting simply do not support this lofty ambition. The closing scene of this episode amply demonstrates this. But you must watch and judge for yourself.
