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

In Manhattan, an earthquake in a building only kills everyone inside but one survivor. The Fringe Division arrives in the spot and finds a second building in the same location and the structure and people merged together. Dr. Bishop concludes that the second building has been brought from the alternate universe using a technology developed by William Bell and him many years ago. Broyles contacts Nina Sharp and the Massive Dynamic helps the investigation trying to identify buildings with similar mass. Meanwhile Dr. Bishop asks Olivia to travel to Jacksonville to revive her experience with Cortexiphan and use her ability to identify the next target. However Olivia is a fearless woman and not the frightened child from the past and the experiment does not work. When they return to New York, Olivia feels that she is frightened again and she identifies the building using her ability. Then she discovers a secret.

"Jacksonville" is another engaging episode of "Fringe" related to the alternate world that will probably affect the relationship of Olivia with Peter and Walter. The cliffhanger conclusion is fantastic and every viewer will look forward to see what happens. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Jacksonville"
