Who Came from the Other Side?

Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
2 March 2017

Two teenager are smoking grass in a car parked at an abandoned area. Out of the blue, they hear a noise in a warehouse and the youngster Dave decides to snoop around. A shape-shifter catches him and assumes his form while another one catches his girlfriend Jill to use her body. When the teenagers are found dead with three marks on the palate, the Fringe Division investigates the case and soon they find a shape- shifter embryo at the warehouse. After a visit to the Massive Dynamic, they conclude that Thomas Jerome Newton is the responsible for the transference. Further, he is trying to bring something big from the parallel universe that will be synchronized with our universe. Now they have to find where the transfer will happen.

"The Man from the Other Side" is another intriguing episode of "Fringe". Now Peter has discovered the truth that Olivia and Walter have tried to tell him. But the great question is who has come from the other side? My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil):"The Man from the Other Side"

Walter's Greatest Fear Realised

Author: XweAponX from United States
5 June 2012

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This is the focal point of the whole series: This Episode is what Walter feared the most: And also what September feared as well.

Three Shapeshifters arrive on "our" side: But one of them is still in embryonic form. Two Teenagers outside smoking "Red Zinger" marijuana see the odd lights, the boy goes in and is instantly absorbed: The Girl, shortly after.

This Leaves one unformed Shapeshifter for Walter to dissect.

What is important here, is that the relationship between Peter and Walter has reached a new height: Peter starts calling Walter "Dad" which he had never done. This pleases Walter: But what neither of them know, is that this new connection is in dire danger from the moment these shape-shifters arrived.

As Walter and Peter and Olivia and Astrid race to figure out what Newton is up to this time, Newton is setting up for the a major event: The arrival of "The Secretary" and at this juncture, we do not know the identity of this person.

Walter, with the help of "Brandon-Nerd," remembers something about sending material to the other side: And Brandon shows them something they had not taken into account: That the universes must be in Time-Sync. This was hinted at in S2e1 and S2e4 - Belly called them "Time Shifts" but in actuality, it was just Olivia's clock getting adjusted to the timing of the other side.

The "Instructions" which were in a transmission at the time the shape- shifters arrived, Walter partially decodes. They include a time: 3:31pm. So Something is gonna happen at that time, it is up to Fringe Division to find out where.

Using basic detective work, they do find out where: It is a partially disassembled Bridge across a river.

Walter had remembered that in sending the objects over, they had to have three tuning forks of the same pitch vibrating at the same time, and the area in the middle would be the place where the crossing over would occur.

So with all these things in place, they find the Bridge where it will happen. Walter had created a pneumatic hammer that would vibrate with a cancellation frequency: But things simply happen too fast, Peter is left on the Bridge: Exposed to the frequency of Newton's Machine: Which Walter had told him would rip him apart. But in fact, it does not. But an FBI agent on the bridge is vaporised! And it does not affect "the Man from the Other Side."

With just these clues, Peter figures it all out: He's not from this side, thus realizing Walter's Greatest Secret and Fear.

This is what Walter and The Observers feared the most: Because Peter leaves the protective covering of Fringe Division, leaving Newton free to pursue him... Across the "Northwest Passage."
