A man removes the heart of another man and calls asking for medical assistance. The paramedics arrive and find that the victim is still alive without his heart. The Fringe Division is assigned to investigate the case and Dr. Bishop realizes that the body is practically not decaying. Further, they find the heart was transplanted and there are other transplanted victims in similar cases. They conclude someone is harvesting the organs from the donor Amanda Walsh Meanwhile Peter discloses to Olivia his relationship with her alternate version and she apparently receives well the information. But when Olivia returns to her apartment, she is upset with everything the alternate Olivia used. After the investigation the Fringe Division comes to the name of Roland David Barrett and they break in his house. Olivia arrests the man that tells that he has rebuilt and revived Amanda, but something came instead since her eyes were different, deeply affecting Olivia.

a tour de force

I will be honest with you.

After the last episode, it was clear that the writers would try to revive the short arc. But the brilliance of the long arc (see prior reviews) was such that I felt -- as is the case with most shows that try this -- they would end up cutting off their own nose to spite their face, so to speak. In other words, the short arc would be boring compared to what came before.

I was wrong. I am thrilled to admit I was wrong.

In perhaps the best "transition" I have ever seen for show that strayed so far afield, they re-spun the short arc, NOT ONLY CREATING THE BEST MODERN UPDATE ON THE FRANKENSTEIN STORY I HAVE EVER SEEN, but adding emotional elements to the Peter-Olivia arc that literally every man and woman on the planet could relate to.

This series is not merely good, and not merely the best thing JJ has produced, but is one of the best series of all time. If you going to a deserted island -- or to prison, or to an alternate universe -- for an uncertain period, you would want to bring the DVD collection with you,
