Storyline

In Philadelphis, the Police Officer Daniel Gillespe receives a phone call and leaves his partner alone to pick up a briefcase in a Train Station. When he catches the object, his body hardens and blows up killing eleven people. Soon the Fringe Division investigates and discovers that it was not a terrorist attack with a bomb; instead it was Gillespe's body parts that killed the passengers. Dr. Bishop finds in the autopsy that something was injected in Officer Gillespe since there are needle marks in his toes. However the footage from the surveillance camera does not help since there is static blurring the image. Peter and Olivia head to Gillespe's house to interview his wife and Olivia accidentally finds a hidden compartment with the drugs used by Gillespe. Soon they discover that an AWOL colonel, Raymond Gordon, may be behind the explosion. Meanwhile Peter and his father seek out a new apartment to live and Olivia meets Sam Weiss to treat her physical and mental problems. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

47 reference: Walter states he stopped counting at 47 needle punches in a victim. 47 is often referenced in the Star Trek shows, and the tradition carried over to Fringe from J.J. Abrams and others. See more »

Goofs

During a briefing, Olivia referred to the explosives being triggered by "a specific VHF frequency". "VHF" is an abbreviation for "Very High Frequency", so stating "VHF frequency" is redundant. See more »

Another Episode without Connection with the Parallel Universe

Meanwhile Peter and his father seek out a new apartment to live and Olivia meets Sam Weiss to treat her physical and mental problems.

"Fracture" is another episode of "Fringe" without connection with the parallel universe storyline. Just like the previous episode, it is entertaining in the X-Files style. Olivia seems to be recalling her experience in the parallel universe and Sam Weiss is curing her. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Fracture"
