Trivia

Brad Dourif and John Noble both have featured roles in "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, but never appear in the same scenes. In this episode, they share a pivotal scene together. See more »

Goofs

Walter was apparently tried for the eventual devastation created by his original crossing between universes (something for which there is obviously no law against because it had never been done) and was imprisoned. It would not have been possible to be tried for breaking a law that does not yet exist. See more »

Crazy Credits

The opening titles are gray, and feature new fringe science topics: futuristic concepts such as "brain porting" and "clonal transplantation", but also "hope" and "water". See more »

Daredevil and X-Filesean finale 3rd part
7 May 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

With all the conspiracy theories still surrounding 9/11 and the upcoming memorial I can't imagine how the American audience felt at the end of The Last Sam Weiss. Peter Bishop going all John Connor on us for a few split seconds was just mindshaking and my brain was suddenly connecting the electrifying productions we enjoyed in the past decades, from Back to the Future to Lost. In fact when it comes to time travel the last is definitely one of the strongest reference these days considering how its last seasons were astonishing. I mean episodes like The Constant practically redefined the way I thought about science fiction. That's why I couldn't help linking this 22th episode to Lost's season 6 16th one, What They Died For. The Day We Died was in the same vein, a cookie jar full of all the elements that made Fringe's season 3 so stellar. But the difference with Lost is that it was actually a finale, an excellent one and respectful of all the hope its audience had in it. My only complain would be about Emily Meade guest starring as Ella. She seemed misplaced and to tell the truth the self proclaimed dumb than dumber being I am didn't really get who she was. Moreover of course she was pretty as hell but far too young to play in the same league as Olivia & Peter. I understand that their intention was to introduce a new character who will probably be featured in season 4 but the story didn't need her. All I wanted was a raw wormholy versus ! Don't get me wrong it happened. Oh yes it happened ! From the wicked orange amber to futuristic devices it had it all, and more. The one thing that should dazzle you the most is the cautious, intriguing and twisted writing. It's simplex the story was filled with jaw dropping events and its ending should put your eyeballs in orbit around your head. Be prepared for everything ! You've been warned. After The X-Files and other cult shows I never thought I would be so excited about an upcoming season but the fourth is coming and its 22 episodes could make us tremble even more. The day they died should be the one you never felt so much alive !
