Trivia

When Walter is looking at the slowed down footage of the Observers removing September's body from the lab, you can see Scooby Doo on the monitor over Walter's right shoulder. See more »

Goofs

When Olivia is talking to the killer as he sits in the police car, you can see the scars covering his face. But when the view is from the other side, looking straight at Olivia, his face it completely clear. It flips back and forth like that a few times. See more »

The Olivia from Peter's Timeline
30 March 2017 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

When a serial-killer kills husbands dehydrating her bodies and then their wives, Walter examines the bodies of the wives and concludes that the killer is using pheromones taken from the husband. Soon they discover that the murderer is Anson Carr, who has a skin disease and is needy of love. Meanwhile Walter finds a strange device implanted by September in Peter's eye and he succeeds to contact September and learn where the Olivia from his timeline is.

"A Short Story About Love" is an episode about love: people in deep love; people needy of lover; Peter pursuing his Olivia. The plot is well resolved with another great participation of September. My vote is nine.
