When Walter, Peter and Olivia try to blow up the supply line from future Observers to "now," they aim to turn the wormhole into a black hole to wreak havoc on the other side of their supply line, expecting it to take the Observers years to recover. Since Observers in the future DO control time travel, nothing would prevent them from opening another supply line after those years of recovery into the very same moment in 2036, making the entire plan of shutting down the supply line ineffective.

Adjustment Bureau Meets T2 and a Few Others:
4 November 2012 | by (Cornwall) – See all my reviews

OK We R Finally getting to the meat n potatoes, part of this the Last Season: 4 those of U concerned that Etta, is in fact Gone forever, pay Close attention to Olivia's Foreshadow 'Surely We didn't just get her Back, only to Lose her again, so soon' This is Fringe also, where Things R seldom, if ever as they seem to be. I am sure, She'll show up, down the Line, or I am a very Poor judge of Episodic TV: Anyway: I Digress... How very nice 2 see Homage, Tribute paid to Philip K Dick, a La The Observers so closely Resembling the 'Helpers' of The Adjustment Bureau: And Peter Interacting with the Tech he Liberated, is Obviously a somewhat Awkward homage to Terminator 2: All that Aside, it really Looks like we may in fact get a Very Satisfactory Wrapping Up, to what is Arguably, the Best Thing 2 Hit TV, at Least since JJ's Last Great attempt LOST:

Cheers TRX15:

Makes U think Right!
