When a group of guest falls during a party from the veranda of an apartment building in Brooklyn to sidewalk, the Fringe Division is assigned to investigate. Olivia, Peter and Walter learn that the building is considered haunted and the residents are moving away. Walter sees the position of the bodies and conclude they have felt through the balcony and concludes the place has a crack to the parallel universe. Olivia notices a glow from the apartment 6B and the widow Alice Merchant believes she can contact the ghost of her husband Derek from the beyond. But soon Walter, Olivia and Peter conclude she is contacting Derek from the parallel universe. Meanwhile Peter tries to mend Olivia's broken heart and rekindle her feelings for him. Written by

The apartment building where the initial fringe event occurs is called the Rosencrantz Building. Walter shows that the building is a site of anomalous disruption of the laws of physics because he flips a coin and it lands on heads ten times in a row, a statistical improbability. These are references to Tom Stoppard's 1966 play "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead," which opens with its two main characters (who are also two minor characters from Shakespeare's Hamlet) betting on coin flips. Against the laws of probability, Rosencrantz bets heads--and wins--ninety-two times. See more
(at around 20 mins) When Walter breaks the glass panel to demonstrate the universe breaking through, the camera angle moves from back to front of the glass panel but the fractures do not match up. From the one camera angle the radial fractures form a five point star with the top point almost directly north and a concentric fracture around the middle, and from the other angle the fractures form a six point star with the top two points running towards the corners of the frame the glass panel sits in and no concentric fracture visible.
