Craig Robert Young is "Alfred Hoffman" - A man who is a shadow from
Walter's father's past.
Hoffman shows up at the "Milton-Staller" wedding - Which obviously is a Jewish Wedding - And is recognized by the Matriarch of the Staller family as a face that looks very familiar. Unfortunately, she dies before she can say much more about it, in a gruesome way: There was some kind of poison in a cinnamon candle that killed only her and her relatives and offspring.
These strange deaths happen once more to people in a Coffee Shop, but only to people with Brown Eyes. Peter finds the same "cinnamon" residue which Walter identifies as the poison.
At first Walter is only vaguely intrigued by the "Plug-And-Play" death aspects of the compound, until he notices a chemical "Signature": - The form in the Molecule of a SEAHORSE, which was the signature of his father.
At first, Walter is angry at Peter, for selling his father's books to Markham 10 years prior-These books had the formulas that are apparently being used to make targeted poisons, Walter believes that the books may have been used to make the poisons. In fact, there is something more insidious happening, which has nothing to do with the books. Hoffman, seeing how "Walter Bischoff" is close to finding out that he's responsible, lays a poison-trap for Walter by stealing one of his coats (And an Apple from the Fridge - This is about the 3rd time an Apple is being eaten by a Fringe bad Guy-Mitchell Loeb gobbled one up after killing Joanne Ostler).
Peter buys back all of Walter's father's books from the guy Markham had sold them to, who was making a Nazi Collage out of the stuff. But once Walter identifies Hoffman as being the Culprit, he sets up a revenge fitting for Hoffman: And turns the tables on him.
For Walter, there is nothing more important than Family. As damaged as he is he will deal with any threat to either Peter, or the memory of his Father. This episode has Walter reflecting back on his father and also considering the future of Peter. As Hoffman lay dying, he points to Walter and yells "Bischoff-Traitor!" before expiring.
The last thing we see, is one of the books Peter had brought back, lay open, and there are photographs of Walter's Father in his Laboratory in Germany, before he defected to the US: Hoffman can be seen clearly in the Photograph.
