Goofs

When Walter describes his health status after the encounter with the worm, he mentions his "white blood count" being "through the roof". In fact, a very high (through-the-roof) white blood count (above normal) would be a sign of infection. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Walter Bishop: 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.

The Parasitic Worms

"Snakehead" is another episode of "Fringe" in "X=Files" style. The story if entertaining and the worms are really creepy but the writer was not inspired. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Snakehead"
