After a violent tremor shakes a Manhattan office building to its core, leaving only one survivor who leads the Fringe Team to believe he is not from this reality. Walter surmises that what shook the building was not geologic, but rather something discovered by him and William Bell many years ago. With another catastrophe imminent, the team races to Jacksonville, the site of Walter and William's experiments, forcing Olivia to face her mysterious past in an effort to save hundreds of people from certain death.

OK, the show was amazing as ever, but seriously? Did they have to ruin that kiss? I mean, it was just perfect, why, oh why couldn't they just let those two kiss? Anyhow, back to the point I am also wondering (in addition to what mike said), if the code Walter used to open the lock has any significance. it was 05 20 10. Is it a date? Could something be happening in May 2010? Something like the rip between the universes? Considering the fact that the show starts again in April, it is very likely something important will happen. But then again, if they will resolve the situation of, well,basically, saving the world, what will there be left to follow (as a plot line)?

Got you curious?
