Goofs

The point of going to the future is to stop the forced evolution of the Observers. Walter and Michael make it to the future and the show ends with the Observers' invasion never happening because the Observers never happened, or at least not in the emotionless form we saw in the show. If that is the case, then September should not have been present at the Lake to save Peter and Walter, so both of them should be dead. Also, if September never existed, then Michael never existed. So the invasion would still take place. What we should have at the end is Olivia, without Walter, joining Fringe Division and researching the Plan (an idea dropped early in Season 1). But of course, we could go back as long as the Observers have been observed in history (the historical prints and paintings shown throughout the series). So it is possible that none of this would ever have happened and we could be looking at a completely different time line. See more »

Quotes

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

Best Series Finale of a TV show for the past years
2 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

All good things eventually come to an end. And so did "Fringe". Despite the lack of dynamic in Season 5 compared to the other four seasons, the series finale was satisfying enough, and way better than the finale of "Lost", for example. Brilliantly played by the cast members, the final two episodes brought a logical ending to the 100-hours story. It really made sense - something I was afraid would not happen, after the confusing finale of "Lost". It also had a happy end, but not in the cheesy way. Therefore, I think it should be satisfying to all fans of the show. For those of you who have still not watched the entire show, I strongly recommend "Fringe".
