Lincoln, feeling out of place on the team now that Peter is back and Olivia is beginning to forget him, volunteers to take liaison duty for the day, and joins the alternate Fringe team in the search for a vigilante killer with some unusual abilities. He bonds with Fauxlivia and Alt-Astrid, and he and Alt-Lincoln compare life stories to figure out the way in which their two lives diverged, only to find that they're not so different as they initially seem to be. Alt-Lincoln still suspects that there may be a mole in his team working for David Robert Jones. Written by
In the parking lot attack scene in the alternate universe, there is a sign that says "USSR." In our universe, the USSR was officially dissolved in 1991, adding to the list of things which are different "over there." See more »
All the good stuff happens "Over There." Agent Lee has been moping around like a 5th Wheel ever since Olivia got Olivia's Memories back. We've seen the wheels rolling, during the time of "No Peter" - There was an obvious sexual tension between Agent Lee and Olivia. How would one of us feel, after meeting an Olivia, just to have a Peter come along and take her away? I'd feel the same way Agent Lee feels. But our Agent Lee, he's just too nice of a guy - Always has been, thats the difference between Our Agent Lee and the Agent Lee from "Over There." And So "Our" Agent Lee takes a slight vacation over on "The Other Side"
And gets wrapped up in a Fringe case.
"Over there," the Fringe agents are Honoured Heroes. This in stark contrast to "Our" side where nobody knows the existence of Fringe Division.
Meanwhile a shapeshifter is killing crooks. Pretty Creepy Shapeshifter, what does it want? Why is it attacking Petty Crooks and taking their identities? Why is it protecting women who are being attacked by perverts? Tim Guinee plays one of the perverts who attacks a woman, the shapeshifter (Named "Caanan") takes Tim Guinee's face. Maximino Arciniega is also a petty crook/Drug dealer, who gets absorbed by Caanan after Tim Guinee. Seems like Caanan cant' keep the body as long as the other Shapeshifter 2.0's in this timeline, or even as long as the one who Occupied Agent Charlie Francis. But Caanan is not like other Shifters, he's got it... Built-In. Where as Shapeshifters 1.0 used a device, Caanan has the device "Built-In."
Why is this shifter going after Low-Lifes? The answer is related to our Agent Lee's problem - And both "guys" are looking for the same thing.
And it seemed pretty Hopeless that this hapless Shapeshifter - Who was vainly waiting for David Robert Jones to "Fix" Him - would find any usable answers at all, except to absorb more crooks. But Agent Lee, in finding an answer for himself - Finds a solution for our Shapeshifter as well.
In this episode, some real progress is made by Fringe Division "Over There" against Jones. But this victory cost way too much- I'm sure this is not the solution Lee was looking for.
Meanwhile, has Alt-Astrid figured out their Broyles is In Deep with Jones? She knows something, she has that look in her eye.
