At the start of the episode a man is found dead, floating outside a building, attached to the ground by a rope. It is later determined that he has been given a compound that makes him float. His arms and his legs hang down towards the ground. If he was lighter than air, upon death, his arms and legs would float upwards, as neither gravity or his muscles would be pulling them towards the ground. See more »


Dr. Walter Bishop: "They glanced up and saw Icarus float through the sky, and taking him for a god, They stood still in wonder."

Whomever is behind the curtain clearly has their act together
15 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

Once again we see that someone with a solid grounding and background in sci-fi is at the helm. This episode takes regular science, the laws of physics, gravity specifically, and turns them around with a "what if" scenario. Then adds in the human component of a caring scientist trying to help people out, so driven in his work that he regrets the casualties he is causing, but still won't stop. Everything about this episode worked. The security details, the investigative methods, the slowly revealed plot and motivation of the scientist, it all meshed. And that's the just the main plot! The secondary issue of "soul magnets" was teased throughout the whole 43 minutes until being fantastically unveiled at the very end. And once again, all along the way we were treated to a real fan of the sci-fi genre being in control of things, keeping the story believable, but with just enough red herrings to keep us guessing too.

Well done Fringe team, well done indeed.
