With Peter hospitalized, Astrid channels Walter's despondency into tackling the problem of dry lightning storms unleashed by the machine. Olivia, meanwhile, joins Sam Weiss to raid a crypt for an ancient lockbox containing "a crowbar" that will help her open up the doomsday machine for Peter, followed by a raid on an electrified museum for its hidden key. With everyone gone and the hospital inundated with burn victims, Peter awakens, alone, suffering memory loss, and wanting to go home. Written by statmanjeff

Did You Know?


After Walter gets struck twice by lightning, he returns to his lab. While "Ostrich" (Astrid) looks for papers to show him, Walter waits, whistling the tune "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen." See more »


(at around 10 mins) When Walter flies a kite to attract lightning, "wind" blows his and Astrid's hair along with other items in very close proximity to them, yet neither the trees in the background or behind the kite nor anything else in the surrounding area move at all, nor is the kite properly constructed in a manner that would allow it to actually "fly" even if there was wind.

Sam Weiss: It's hot-wired. It's tricked into thinking he's already inside. That's why it's repelling anyone or any thing trying to enter.
Olivia Dunham: So you're thinking that it's malfunctioning.
Sam Weiss: What I'm saying is... it's frustrated... in a manner of speaking.

Wow Really Rocks Hope They Wrap it up Sensibly!
30 April 2011 | by (Cornwall) – See all my reviews

This Is Darn Good

What a Wonderful Episode, even though it Takes Many Leaps of Logic, and so On, but as In All Fringe--Logic is Never Relevant it seems here if you have been Paying Attention To Any of the Previous Episodes but I wander Pardon Me! I really Wonder if the Observers are coming Back for the End of this Season, or Will They Be Prominently Featured Next Season as so Many People are Speculating? Boy I am Really Impressed with the Writing these Past Few Shows--It is Really Getting Much Stronger every Episode seemingly--Very Good Job Writing Staff--Now Let's Wrap it up Nicely, with a Few Good Shows that Actually Make Sense, and Hopefully You Won't have to Scratch your Head too much, or View Them Repeatedly to Have them Make Sense! One Can Only Hope!

Cheers T:
