When a shadow touches a man at home and he turns into dust, his wife panics and the Fringe Division is assigned to investigate. Philip Broyles recalls similar cases he was involved and obsessed a few years ago. Senator James Van Horn tries to persuade Broyles to stop the investigation and deliver the case to the CIA and Russian government but he does not accept. A patient is murdered in a hospital and while investigating the surveillance cameras, Olivia sees the shadow. Soon the Fringe Division finds the responsible for the death and what the shadow is. Will they succeed to stop the entity?

Towards the end a little girl is watching a cartoon with a white lion cub. That is 'Kimba the White Lion', a 1960s Japanese cartoon show based on a 1950s manga. When Disney released 'The Lion King' that movie's similarities to 'Kimba' caused a bit of a stir. See more
When speaking in Russian to his comatose brother, Timur refers to him sometimes as "Sashka", "Sashok" (diminutive of Aleksandr) and other times as "Lyokha", "Lionya" (diminutive of Aleksei). In fact, Timur actually cries "Aleksei!" zapping his brother for the first time. Despite being similar, Aleksandr and Aleksei are two quite different names in Russian and have different diminutive/pejorative forms.
When Broyles opens the dossier on brothers you can catch a glimpse of cosmonaut's full name: Aleks Ivanovich Vasiliev. "Aleks", being a modern short form of both Aleksei and Aleksandr, is not a "valid" name in Russia or Soviet Union. No parents could give their baby a name "Aleks" - in SU there were strict regulations/customs on this subject. Since Aleks is not a valid name, it couldn't form proper patronymic. "Aleksovich" (son of Aleks) sounds synthetic and just weird. See more
