Fringe Liberty
20 January 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Michael know is with the observers while the fringe team find it hard to find where he has been taken. Looking for Michael they call Philip looking for help. The observer struggles to get into Michael's head and fails when Michael is able to make the observer bleed. Philip goes outside the office and calls back the team telling them where Michael is being kept captive. Olivia thinks that their best option is for her to travel between universes again. While Peter thinks she should not do this she thinks this is really the only option to get Michael back. No one quite knows what has happened in the other universe but they get to see through an ideas of Astrid's. Donald goes to the lab and finding no one there goes through with building his part of the plan. The gang arrive at the safe house and Olivia feels fine to take her dosage to travel to and back. Olivia struggles to take the dosage but takes it either way all four of them. Olivia reacts strange not seeing most people around her. Once Olivia wakes up she must go to the other universe. Once she travels she is instantly detected and taken into the headquarters of the other universes Fringe division. She is then reunited with older versions of Fauxlivia and Lincoln Lee. Olivia gets the help she needs and is taken to liberty island. She then travels back to her universe to get Michael who is not in the room she thought he was. Olivia makes her way through the building to the room where Michael is shooting anyone in her way. She finds Michael but when she goes back to the other universe is followed by an observer. Lincoln and Fauxlivia help her get away by keeping her safe with their guns. Olivia and Michael then travel back to their universe reunited with the fringe team. The observer learns the fringe team found out Michael's location was from Philip. Donald is missing a piece for his machine and finds out December asking for help from a favour he is owed. It was great to see Lincoln Fauxlivia one last time making the episode even better. With one episode left I wonder who will live and will the fugitives win in the end.
