Using her FBI training, Olivia escapes from Robert Jones' people. An FBI agent from Olivia's past is set to investigate the motifs and actions of the Fringe division. Olivia retrieves a sample from her abductors that contains the same parasite that is used to kill an immunologist. At the federal HQ, Loeb interferes with the investigation and finally Olivia figures out he's the other mole. Loeb instructs his wife to kill Olivia but Peter, who overhears the conversation, warns Olivia. Loeb is then caught by the team. Written by Andreea D

Phillip Broyles: Listen up. One of our own has been abducted. The vehicle of Agent Olivia Dunham was found abandoned on Graniteville Road in Westford three miles northeast of Little Hill. I want everyone doing everything: surveillance cameras checked, local officers and agents questioned. Anyone who might have seen anything - PD, DWP, AAA - I don't care what acronym it is, you get 'em, you talk to 'em and you find Dunham.

Engaging and Full of Action
20 December 2016 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Olivia awakes tied-up to a stretcher and a masked man injects something in her spine; however she glances at his shoes. When most of the abductors leave the place, Olivia lures the men that have stayed and succeeds to escape, taking samples of their research with her. However she is arrested by the men of her Sanford Harris that holds a grudge against her and is investigating the Fringe Division. Meanwhile the immunologist Professor Miles Kinberg expels a slug through his mouth during a lecture and Dr. Bishop researches and learns that the parasite is the same he found in the samples that Olivia took from her abductors. Olivia brings another famous immunologist, Dr. Simon, to the FBI office for protection; however Mitchell Loeb brings water with the parasite and kills him. But soon Olivia recognizes his shoes and finds that he is the double agent. Now she plots a scheme to find evidences against Loeb. Will Olivia succeed in her intent?

"Bound" is maybe the most engaging and full of action episode of "Fringe". Olivia Dunham shows her skills in the most different situations, inclusive with her sister and nephew and this is indeed her episode. The conclusion, with the confession of the mole Mitchell Loeb is intriguing. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Bound"
