In conversation with Walter, Peter states that 1933 (the year he erroneously believes his grandfather emigrated from Germany to the U.S.) was "well before the Nazis came to power". In fact, in January of 1933, Adolf Hitler, Nazi party chairman, was appointed Chancellor of Germany. This is generally agreed to mark the beginning of "Nazi Germany", and is exactly when the party came to power. See more »

The Research
15 February 2017 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

During the reception of a Jewish wedding, only the descendant from a Holocaust survivor die. The Fringe Division is assigned to investigate and Dr. Bishop suspects that the action is part of a scientific experiment with a toxin and another specific group will die. When the clients of a diner with brown eyes die, Walter confirms the signature of his father with a seahorse in the formula. Walter also recalls the research of his father in Germany and seek his books that have hidden formulae of researches carried out by him. However Peter discloses that he sold the books to a bookstore. Now the only chance to stop the murder spree seems to be to locate the buyer's whereabouts.

"The Bishop Revival" is another episode of "Fringe" where Dr. Bishop steals the show and resolves the case. Peter feels embarrassed and regrets his action in the past when his father was in the asylum. Olivia this time has a minor participation. The plot is well concluded with Dr. Bishop's revenge. My vote is eight.
