Slow start but strong finish
22 December 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

"Anomaly" started off with a nice pace, taking place right after the team locates Michael the Observer boy. Unfortunately, the pace soon dips and the episode takes a slow turn as Peter, Walter, and Olivia visit Nina to read Michael's thoughts.

A major chunk of the episode was Windmark interrogating scientists and the Fringe team trying to get a piece of technology. These two linear plot lines took about half of the episode and went by slowly, but as soon as Windmark found the man working with Nina and our team found the technology for Michael it picked up again.

With the "black lab" Nina brought them too compromised, the Observers found her and were about to interrogate her for information on Michael when Nina took a Loyalist's gun and shot herself. It was a tragic ending for Nina, but really raised the stakes. With the piece of technology allowing them to communicate with Michael, the team went back to the lab and Walter asked him questions. Michael showed Walter flashes of his past, and revealed that Donald was actually September as a human!

Yes, this episode did answer a major mystery of the show, but it seemed like it took too long to do it. Just like last weeks, it felt that the first chunk of the episode was stretched out too long, although the final 10 minutes were fantastic. It just feels like time is being a bit wasted here, and with only 3 episodes to go there isn't any time left to stand around.
