The Fringe team descends upon the scene to examine the bodies and discovers that the mysterious organisms are actually giant parasites. As the investigation unfolds, Walter heads back to the lab while Olivia, Peter and Broyles race against time when they realize the case has ties to a threatening organization. Written by

My name is Walter. The Number 5 bus hasn't stopped here for over two hours. Not that it matters. I used up all my bus fare to dial seven wrong numbers. I can't remember Peter's number. I know it's got three fives, a one, a zero, and two sevens... but for the life of me, I can't remember the correct sequence.
