The Dream's Thief
16 January 2017 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In an office, a man called Greg Leiter sees that his coworkers are demons and kills his chief with his briefcase. The Fringe Division goes to the hospital and Olivia and Peter interview Greg; out of the blue, he has an attack and dies with acute exhaustion and white hairs. While Dr. Bishop performs the autopsy of his body, Olivia and Peter visits Greg's wife and learns that he had sleep disorder but was under treatment. Meanwhile there is a similar incident and Dr. Bishop finds a chip connected to the thalamus in both corpses. The Fringe Division visits Dr. Nayak, who had implanted the chips, and suspects of his assistant Zach. But when Zach is found dead in his room and Dr. Nayak receives a note with an intimidation since he is collaborating with the FBI. But soon the Fringe Division believes that Dr. Nayak is addicted on the dreams of his patients.

"Dream Logic" is an entertaining episode of "Fringe" with the storyline apparently not connected to the parallel universe. Peter's dream in the end of the show is the most intriguing part since he recalls when he was abducted by Walter. My vote is eight.
