Did You Know?


Right at the beginning of the show, four of Jones' minions are shown moving to specified geographic locations at a synchronous time. Three at in the Eastern Hemisphere: Australia, China, Nepal, and the fourth is in the Western Hemisphere, in New York. Yet all four are shown as being in daylight; this is impossible: if it were daylight in the Eastern Hemisphere, it would be night in the Western Hemisphere, and vice versa. See more »

Bye Bye, Bridge
28 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

David Robert Jones has elicited the help of Several Cortexiphan Kidz to move his agenda along. We've met a couple of them: Sally Clark (Who may have been the person named Susan Pratt/Nancy Lewis in Season 1 - Played here by Pascale Hutton, but in Season 1 by Jennifer Ferrin) — and Nick Lane (David Call).

I do not know if the Sally Clark and Nancy Lewis characters were the same person, both of them had the same Cortexiphan "gift" of Pyrotelekinesis. Nick Lane we also met in S1, he and Sally helped Olivia and Walter cross over at the end of S2. We saw in the season finale of S2 that Nick Lane was known by the Alternate Lincoln Lee.

In S2 we ultimately saw Nick shot and Sally self-combust, causing Alternate Lee to live in a Nanite Regeneration Chamber for a couple of months. But in the Bridge "Verse, they are here and helping Jones. The Alternate Nick Lane ironically seeks out Lincoln Lee, to notify him that he "dreamed" himself causing an Earthquake.

Walter pieces together what Jones is doing, that Jones is using one set of Cortexiphan kidz to resonate with their Alternates and thus bring about the end of two universes: and both Fringe teams unite with one chance of finding Jones. Or else Peter has to close the Bridge to keep Jones from finalising his plan.

This episode is mostly bittersweet because we know that this will happen at the end of this Episode. Jones has proved to be one elusive b$#$#%. Jones lied to the Cortexies to get their help. As much as I may want to try to understand Jones, as pleasant as he appears: he is inevitably Slime.

In a way I have been waiting for this Episode all season: I'd hoped that with The Bridge in place there would have been more episodes with interaction between the two. It is great to see Walter and Walternate, Olivia and Fauxlivia, Astrid and Alt-Astrid, Broyles and... Well Foeyles is in Jail so he was not there. All side by side for the "last" time. And Walter/Walternate has a tryst with him/themselves, which was great acting on the part of John Noble who makes us believe he is two different people.

I'm glad the characters ended on this note: Will we see them again? Will they ever stand Side by Side again? Not in the Bridge room.

But there still exists ways for people to cross over, and we can be sure Jones has no problems using them. And of course, Livvie's natural Cortexiphan Talent is that of crossing over. And it did occur to me, that this smells like a Trick of JonesJonesJones
