Storyline

The team investigates a young man, Roy McComb, who seems to have the ability to predict major incidents before they happen. When they search his apartment, they find drawings and models of a variety of attacks, including the flight from Germany. In the most recent incident, a bus load of people are gassed and a bag stolen from an undercover narcotics agent. Dr. Bishop recalls working on experiments with his old friend, the founder of Massive Dynamics, that could explain what is happening with McComb. When Agent Dunham visits Nina Sharp to get more information on Massive Dynamics' possible role in these experiments, she realizes that she has not been fully briefed on what is going on.

Trivia

The character of Roy is a reference to the late author David Foster Wallace. Roy's costuming, clothes, and makeup all resemble DFW's style. In the end of the episode, Roy's bandages echo DFW's trademark bandana. See more »

Goofs

The positions of the "frozen" bus passengers change between the shot of the police officer discovering them and the subsequent scene of the main characters investigating the scene. Most obviously, the dead DEA agent disappears from her frozen position between the two scenes. See more »

Astrid Farnsworth: Wait, you want to rewire his brain?
Dr. Walter Bishop: Not without his permission. It would be a minor surgery.
Peter Bishop: Minor brain surgery. Emphasis not on the minor.

Another Engaging Episode
12 July 2016 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

A man called Roy McComb gores to the church and confess to the priest that he can talk to the devil and foresees accidents. Meanwhile a man releases a lethal gas in a bus and steals the backpack of a woman. Agent Dunham is assigned to investigate the case and soon she discovers that the woman was an undercover narcotics agent. Meanwhile the FBI is informed by the priest about Roy and finds drawings, sketches and models of several attacks in his apartment, some of them not released to the press. Roy explains that he overhears voices and Dr. Bishop recalls an unfinished experiment of communication he had worked with his former friend and founder of the Massive Dynamics. Dr. Bishop and his son decide to proceed the experiment with Roy while Dunham learns that she is not informed of all necessary information. Further, they find that the man did not find what he was looking for in the backpack and has visited the agent in the hospital. What is he searching for?

"The Ghost Network" is another engaging episode of "Fringe". There are funny moments with Dr. Bishop and mysterious sequences with Phillip Broyles and Nina Sharp. Anna Torvis is excellent in the role of the efficient Olivia Dunham. But so far the best is the unpredictability of each storyline. My vote is eight.
