Storyline

Murders occur in which the victims are initially thought to be albinos, but when the body count reaches four, it seems evident something else is happening and gets the attention of Fringe Division. Blood at one such scene is traced to a strange, pale baby hypersensitive to light who supposedly died 4 days after his birth in 1989. But U-gene (for Unknown) Bryant almost certainly survived and came to the attention of the body that later became Massive Dynamic, where he became the subject of intensive experiments. Walter demonstrates that UV light can reveal an otherwise invisible mouse. He theorizes that an invisible U-gene is absorbing the victims' pigments in an attempt to become normal. He's going to need a lot of pigment, so more bodies are expected.. But in doing so, he is unwittingly altering his genetic makeup in a way which will ultimately be suicidal.

Now we see what's really going on
19 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

And this episode, which seemed to make little sense according to the overall story that is being told, tells a "minor" Fringe story to interject another side-plot, this one closer to "home".

This has to do with the "Orange Fringe 'Verse" version of one of our main Fringe characters.

We are discovering now, that people we considered allies in the first three seasons of Fringe - Now have motives different than what we thought they had in the "Blue Fringe 'Verse".

Or did they have ulterior motives all along?

The "Fringe Event" of this ep, Although interesting, is not of the caliber of what we usually see in these weekly "Proceedural" eps. But regardless, I feel this is an important Ep: If only for the fact, that there seems to be something a bit more sinister happening, "closer to home", which brings questions about where the "new shapeshifter threat" is really coming from.
