In an earlier show, the Fringe team pursued a man who could make paraplegics float using an osmium solution that worked only due to the unraveling of the two universes. Walter then said in the next season that the universes had healed themselves, thereby the laws of physics were once again intact. Because of this, Walter's osmium-tipped bullets shouldn't have made the Observers float when they were shot. See more »


The Observer: It's not about fate, Walter. Yours or mine. It's about changing fate. It's about hope. And protecting our children.

I want that white tulip!
24 January 2013 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

I can not believe that this remarkable show ended. I will miss every millisecond of every episodes and characters and everything. I feel like trapped in amber and waiting for Fringe to continue to get out. This show will remain as my favorite sci-fi drama, forever. And John Noble who played Walter Bishop, I want to say that I love you so much. You are a great actor. Not just in Fringe, in other movies and dramas too. You gave life such a character that I will never forget and I will always miss because of your remarkable acting. Walter would never be Walter if you wouldn't play. I hope producers decide to make films. Not just one, it should be trilogy. I will never lose my hope and I will wait for the white tulip.
