Trivia

Walter, wearing goggles, is working on the mining suit. That hand held gizmo with the purple 'flame' and sparks looks to be a plasma cutter, a device using a high current electrical arc to generate an extremely hot plasma jet which can easily cut through the hardest steel. See more »

Goofs

When Olivia is describing to Peter the wall of missing persons behind him, the "mind's eye" visual shows a wall of missing persons fliers, one of which states "LAST SEEN JUNE 12 2033". The current year is 2036 and they have been frozen in amber for 21 years since 2015, so the wall being recalled and described was from 2015 or earlier, making the 2033 date nonsensical. See more »

Making History
6 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

Peter, Olivia, Walter and Etta head in a van to a coordinate in Northern Pennsylvania as per Walter's instruction in a videotape. Meanwhile Astrid stays in the laboratory in Harvard trying to fix the tape. They meet Edwin Massey and his group that record history in a computerized file system for the next generations. Astrid succeeds to understand the rest of the video and informs that they should find a mine and get some rocks that are necessary to generate energy power. But the problem is, the mine would kill whoever try to reach the lower level since its atmosphere calcifies the human body. Further, Etta receives a phone call from the resistance telling that The Observers are approaching to the location based on an information from a loyalist that tracked them down. What will the group do?

"The Recordist" is another great episode of "Fringe" with an emotional story. The situation of the historians trying to preserve the true human history is sad, and the conclusion with Edwin's sacrifice is touching. My vote is eight.
