Getting Into the 4th Window
4 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

The whole idea of a "Johari Window" is to try to bust into that 4th Window - The one that has stuff that you don't know and others don't know. The more stuff in the 1st Three windows, the better you can guess what's in the "Unknown Area"

And that's what Edina is: An Unknown Area, and the people who live there want to keep it that way.

This is another expert Fringe episode of Misdirection, and it had Walter chasing a huge Macguffin: Until he finally remembered: "Hard Artichokes Rarely Keep: Norwegian Elephants, Singapore Sleep"

Walter is recovering from being Kidnapped by Thomas Jerome Newton. So he's afraid to go out in public anymore. This is affecting not only his relationship with Peter, but his work ethic as well: But it is this particular Pattern Event that breaks him out of that. The idea of finding a "Werewolf" gets him excited. Apparently, there are people near Edina who can change their appearance!

But Walter does not find any evidence of Lycanthropy: Instead, he finds a beautiful butterfly, which he catches to bring to Astrid.

But when they get a body and the butterfly back to the lab, the butterfly has reverted to an ugly, deformed MOTH - And so has the body! Which gives Astrid a scare when she zips open the body bag. The man, who was normal in Edina, is now deformed.

Walter uncovers a secret: A secret which he was involved with for a short time for some Army experiments. It is up to Walter now, to either let the secret out, or to continue keeping it - For the safety and peace of mind of the people of Edina. But which? Walter has to choose.
