The Time Jumper
28 February 2017 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

A man appears in a commuter train wagon and all passengers and batteries die. The Fringe Division investigate and soon they find that the MIT astrophysicist Alistair Peck (Peter Weller) is the responsible. However he can jump in time absorbing energy around the destination, change the events and resetting time, giving the sensation of dejavu to Olivia. They discover that Alistair is trying to jump in time to save his beloved fiancée from a car accident. Meanwhile Dr. Bishop write a letter to Peter telling the truth to him. Then he meets Alistair at the MIT and he tries to convince the astrophysicist to give up his intent. He also discloses what has happened to Peter and corrects his formula that has a mistake. What will Alistair do?

"White Tulip" is another great episode of "Fringe". The intriguing story is again well resolved and Walter finds the best solution about Peter. It is great to see Peter "RoboCop" Weller again with an excellent participation. My vote is eight.
