Storyline

When the shipment of cryogenically frozen heads is stolen by a mysterious man, he shots the security guards and one of the guards helps him to kill the guards but is also killed by one of the guards. When Dr. Bishop analyses the corpse, he discovers that the body has blood and mercury; therefore the man is a shapeshifter and Walter concludes that the nurse killed at the hospital was human. The Fringe Division finds an intact device with the shapeshifter and Olivia gives it to Nina Sharp in order to help the Massive Dynamics to find the identity of the shapeshifter that tried to kill her.

This is the TIUAN episode
20 February 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

One thing that all highly successful series have in common these days -- and make no mistake, this 5-season barn burner is right at the top of the list -- is a TAKE IT UP A NOTCH episode, Thats an episode where the producers basically say to the fans, you like our characters, you like our weekly adventures, you are quite happy with the show, BUT WE ARE NOT ... so lets throw in a pinch of salt.

For FRINGE FANS a FUN FACT .. time changes when you are having a good time.

This episode speeds by in a blink because so many interesting things are happening.

Great writing direction editing.

They could also have called this episode WALTER GETS LUCKY.
