Storyline

September asks December to bring an initiating reactor to complete the time machine. Then he meets Walter, Peter, Olivia and Astrid and explains how the device works. Peter finds a farewell video tape from Walter addressed to him. Olivia and Astrid go to December's apartment to bring the initiating reactor but they find him hanged and the part taken by Loyalists and The Observers. Astrid suggests to use an Observer shipping lane instead. Olivia and Peter go to the Observer's headquarters and use chemical gas to retrieve a control cube to use the shipping lane. They also rescue Broyles that was interrogated by Windmark. Now they start to set in motion the plan to defeat The Observers. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

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; 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). 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.

Quotes

Captain Windmark: Before we arrived here, we sent a team of twelve. Their mission was to observe and report; however, a strange phenomenon occurred. To some degree or other, they succumbed to irrational emotions. Your kind infected them.
Phillip Broyles: But not you. You seem to be impervious to everything.
Captain Windmark: I will never speak of it again, but I will admit this to you, Phillip. I, too, feel something. I believe you call it... hate.
Phillip Broyles: The feeling is mutual.

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.
