Storyline

When the art student Christine Holls is abducted by an Observer that is shot but is not wounded, Olivia and Peter are assigned to investigate the weird case. Soon they find that this 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 that explains that she would take a flight to Rome. Peter sees a picture of Christe 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 hitman to fix August's mistake. What would be the reason for August's action? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

The amusement park shown at the end of the episode is Playland, near Vancouver, BC. The roller coaster is simply known as the Wooden Roller Coaster, built in 1958. See more »

Goofs

In the long shot of Olivia on the roller coaster, it is clearly someone wearing a poor blonde wig, and not the actual actress. See more »

"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"
