Storyline

When a scientist is killed by a blue dust that grinds his bones up, the Fringe Division investigates the case and suspects a biological attack. The investigation leads them to a former marine that flees but is hit by a car. In coma, Walter recalls his Cortexiphan patient Simon Phillips that is capable to read mind. Olivia, Peter and Walter try to convince Simon, who leaves in a desert area, to help them to locate the terrorists, but he is sensitive to other people since he cannot control his ability. Simon agrees to help and also disclose Peter's real feelings for her. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

During the first encounter of Simon Phillips and Walter Bishop, Simon recites the random thoughts that Walter thinks. One of them is the mathematical definition of the Mandelbrot Set on the imaginary plane: "Z-two equals Z-one square plus C" See more »

Goofs

When Walter mentions "Wooster," he is actually referring to the Ohio city, not the Massachusetts town of Worcester, which is pronounced similarly. In previous episodes, it had been established that a second set of Cortexiphan trials had been conducted in Wooster, Ohio. See more »

When a scientist is killed by a blue dust that grinds his bones up, the Fringe Division investigates the case and suspects a biological attack. The investigation leads them to a former marine that flees but is hit by a car. In coma, Walter recalls his Cortexiphan patient Simon Phillips that is capable to read mind.

Simon agrees to help and also disclose Peter's real feelings for her.

"Concentrate and Ask Again" is another engaging episode of "Fringe". The lead story of Simon Phillips and his telepathic ability is great, but the subplot about Olivia and Peter feelings is also promising especially after the discovery of Nina. My vote is eight.
