Storyline

When a patient of a mental institution is submitted to an intriguing brain surgery and is left behind with his brain exposed, he surprisingly regains sanity. The Fringe Division is assigned to investigate the case and while Olivia and Peter check the surveillance footage, Olivia recognizes one of the men. She check the FBI file and finds his name as Thomas Jerome Newton, the leader of the shapeshifters that have stolen the frozen heads. They discover that the patient's doctor is Dr. Paris and there are two other patients sent to other mental institutions by the physician fourteen years ago. Soon they learn that the two patients have mysteriously recovered and the Fringe Division discovers they have been also submitted to brain surgeries. When Walter is submitted to a CT-scan, they find that three pieces of his brain were removed and implanted in the three patients. What is the intention of Thomas?

After Newton asks Walter about the door, we see Olivia and Peter on the way in the Navigator, with the driver's window rolled up. The shot then switches to the inside for a troubled glance between Peter and Olivia, then an exterior shot of the Navigator with the driver's window open and no Peter in the passenger seat.

"Grey Matters" is one of the most intriguing episodes of "Fringe". In this episode, it is explained the behavior of Dr. Walter Bishop and the feelings of Olivia and Peter with him. The evil Thomas Jerome Newton will certainly be the great villain of this season. My vote is eight.
