Storyline

When the art student Christine Hollis is abducted by an Observer who is shot but not wounded, Olivia and Peter are assigned to investigate the weird case. Soon they find that there is another Observer (called August), and not the one they know that saved Peter and Dr. Bishop from a car accident. They interview Christine's roommate who explains that Christine was to have taken a flight to Rome. Peter sees a picture of Christine and her parents, who died in the San Francisco earthquake, and he finds the Observer in the background. When the plane to Rome crashes, the Fringe Division concludes that August has saved Christine's life. Meanwhile the other Observers hire a hit man to fix August's mistake. What would be the reason for August's action? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

"August" is one of the best episodes of Fringe. The sad story has a tragic romantic conclusion and shows a little more about the Observers. The question now is the remark of the two Observers in the end of the show about Olivia in the amusement park telling that everything is about to get so hard for her. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "August"
