When they are injecting the cortexiphan in Olivia, Walter says to Peter to turn the monitor, which seems to be ViewSonic. However, ViewSonic was founded in 1987, while the building was closed in 1985 and the monitor couldn't be ViewSonic. See more »


Dr. Walter Bishop: The universe seeks balance. We sent a car over there so a car of equal mass came back. Now, a building from the other side appeared here. The laws of physics demand both sides of the equation balance. I calculate that a building from this side will be pulled over there... inhabitants and all... within the next... just under 35 hours.

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.

Rating: wow
