The Haunting Man
26 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

Walter is interviewed by a psychiatrist that wants to send him back to the mental institution but he does not disclose that he is haunted by a mysterious man. Meanwhile the young boy Aaron flees from two bullying boys and hide himself in a tunnel in a park. However the boys find him but are surprisingly decomposed in seconds buy a fungus. The Fringe Division is assigned to investigate and the boy is sent to Walter's laboratory to see whether he is also infected. Soon Walter finds that the fungus are part of a single organism that he calls Gus and they are interconnected with the boy.

"Alone in the Dark" is another conventional episode of "Fringe" in the style of "X-Files". The best part is the conclusion, when Walter learns that Olivia is also dreaming on the man that is haunting him. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Alone in the World"
