Storyline

Agent Dunham and the Bishops investigate the deaths of a group of people who died from radiation poisoning in a diner. They believe the source of the radiation was Emily Kramer, a young woman who had vanished two weeks previously and was probably being held against her will. When another young woman, Claire Williams, disappears the investigators believe someone may be conducting experiments. Dr. Bishop believes the emanations from Kramer were microwaves and she may in fact have been developed as a walking weapon. They trace the research to the head of a pharmaceutical firm David Esterbrook, who has a history of promoting off the wall ideas. Nina Sharp has information and strikes a bargain with Peter Bishop.

Quotes

Olivia Dunham: I guess by now you're heard.
Phillip Broyles: That you frog-marched a senior officer of a multi-billion dollar conglomerate out of his office? Yeah, I heard. Quite a few cameras there.
Olivia Dunham: [shrugs] The press. They always get their pound of flesh. I understand that you think I acted too emotionally. Putting aside the fact that men always say that about women they work with, I'll get straight to the point: I am emotional. I do bring it into my work. It's what motivates me. It's what helps me get into the headspace of ...

The Radiation Effect
19 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

A woman is dumped from a van on a street of Massachusetts without memories and dizzy by two men wearing hazmat suits. She goes to a diner and the owner calls a police officer. He interrogates the woman, she becomes upset and everybody inside the diner dies from radiation and her head blows-up. Agent Dunham is assigned to investigate the case with Dr. Walter and Peter Bishop and they find that the woman was Emily Kramer suffered the rare and incurable disease "Bellini's lymphocemia" but she was cured by radiation. When another woman, Claire Williams, with the same disease vanishes, Dunham and Peter learn that they had been submitted to an experimental treatment by David Esterbrook from the Intrepus, the competitor of Massive Dynamic. But how will they find the location of the secret laboratory?

"The Cure" is another great episode of "Fringe". The intriguing beginning and the negotiation of Peter and Nina Sharp are the best moments. However, the storyline about the relationship between Dunham and her stepfather is pointless. It is funny to see Dr. Bishop finding the cure of an incurable disease without experiments in a short time to save Claire. My vote is eight.
