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.

16 May 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

"Agent Dunham please don't tell him" is the last line of one of the best episodes in the series The short arc (story) is engaging and suspenseful, relying less on the rules of dramatic conflict and more on the "connection" between the audience and the characters, which is well established by Season 2.

As the episode winds down, Torv lets her hair down -- literally -- a treat for her fans who by this time have realized that she spends entire segments with her hair pulled back yet astonishingly remains one of the most photogenic actresses in TV history.

Just when you think this can't get any better -- this a special treat for viewers who caught the throwaway reference to "Peter dying again" from an earlier story -- a "trope" is used to let the viewer and Torv's character pick up new information on this arc at the same time.
