About the ending!
12 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The ending of this episode provoked a jolt of euphoria throughout my body and mind. Especially, when I have been particularly interested in near-death experience studies (involving confirmed claims) which show evidence for the hereafter in the real world.

The ending of this episode ("Os") entered rarely occupied ground for a drama of its caliber: a depiction of consciousness after death that wasn't ridiculously spooky or merely symbolic. Most TV dramas seem to adopt a presumption of naturalism. The supernatural and the concept of dualism (exceptions being shows like "Ghost Whisperer") tend to be explained away by more easily observable phenomena. Death is usually the primary threat in most TV dramas. Most TV dramas tend to promote or suggest the "finality" of death. It's as if without that perspective, most dramas would be much less effective.

However, "Fringe" has the confidence to annihilate the concept of death as final and come up with one of its best episodes. Furthermore, it's likely to continually grow in interest as the extent of this apparent possession develops.

Way to make a stand and embrace the hereafter!
