Did You Know?


Neil's safe combination is 7-9-3. Since Neil is a mathematician and highly religious (to the point of believing himself to be an Angel of Mercy on Earth), this is not surprising, as all three numbers are considered divine numbers in most major religions of the world. See more »


When Alternate Astrid blurts out "Deus ex Machina," Walter asks, "The hand of God?" This phrase actually translates into "God via the machine" or "God in the machine," an plot device in Ancient Greek drama that amounted to a last-minute rescue by an omnipotent force. Neither Walter's translation nor Alternate Astrid's use of the phrase are accurate. See more »

September's Gadget
4 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The last time we saw September, he had a gaping hole in his chest. Now, the other Observers, are speaking of him in the past tense. Or, at least of things he did or did not do in 1985.

IN this episode, we meet a man (This week's Fringe Ep is once again sadly missing IMDb info at the time of this review) who somehow has figured out how The Observers can see time, and he is using this ability to Make Angels, either out of three victims, or himself, the title of this ep can mean either thing. Did September have something to do with this? Ironically, the place where the man learns the ability is at Reiden Lake - The seismologic center where began The Pattern.

At the same time, Alternate Astrid has come over to "this" side, what does she want? This is Jasika's moment, and her episode. Astrid has been a fixture on Fringe for the last 3 and a half years, this is a welcome investigation of her characters.

Peter is learning, he just can't talk to Walter the same way he talks to "His Own" Walter - It just doesn't work, in the Orange 'Verse- This Walter still seems to want as little to do with Peter as possible... But with the untimely visit of Alter-Astrid and then later, Fauxlivia, Walter is given some things to think about.

This Episode is Puzzle Pieces... But as Colonel Broyles had said in the Season 2 premiere, "The more we learn, the more questions we have". Well, the puzzle pieces that have been thrown down on the table in this Ep, are a confusing lot- Disparate Events that are somehow connected.

There is a New Observer, who does not seem as Friendly to Walter and Peter's cause as September was. This new guy (Steve Weller) seems to be the Observer Boss who you don't wanna Cross. We also meet Astrid's Father: A special appearance by Blu Mankuma.

I make this entreaty to all Fringe fans: Please Tune to Fox on Friday, even if you will not be there!
