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

Dr. Walter Bishop: Peter, hold on to these tight. Anti-gravity osmium bullets. Shoot Observers with these and watch them float away like balloons.
Peter Bishop: If we shoot 'em, they're dead. Why'd we want 'em to float away?
Dr. Walter Bishop: ...Because it's cool.
Peter Bishop: That makes sense Walter.

Disappointing series finale
2 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was really looking forward to this. For a season finale, let alone a series finale, I found this episode extremely disappointing. It was very uneventful. Nothing actually happens for the first 30 minutes except characters talking, and every conversation had the same shot/reverse shot, which got tedious and bland. Everything you would have expected to happen, happens. The entire episode felt very by-the-numbers and didn't stand out to be special from any other episode of the season, which is something a finale should typically do. I appreciated the attempt at callback from earlier seasons, but it felt very underwhelming and brief.

This should have been much more eventful.

6/10
