Guest star Peter Weller plays a scientist who has implanted mechanical and electrical devices in his body that give him special abilities - the dictionary definition of a "cyborg." Weller is most famous for playing the lead role in the RoboCop movies, in which his character is a cyborg police officer. See more »


During the recurrent scenes where Peter Weller leaves the train ramp after his jumps, you can see at the right of the screen a subtle but visible Canadian flag on the window of another nearby stationary train. See more »


Peter Bishop: I read that déjà vu is fate's way of telling you... that you're exactly where you're supposed to be. That's why you feel like you've been there before. You are right in line with your own destiny.

The Time Jumper
28 February 2017 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

A man appears in a commuter train wagon and all passengers and batteries die. The Fringe Division investigate and soon they find that the MIT astrophysicist Alistair Peck (Peter Weller) is the responsible. However he can jump in time absorbing energy around the destination, change the events and resetting time, giving the sensation of dejavu to Olivia. They discover that Alistair is trying to jump in time to save his beloved fiancée from a car accident. Meanwhile Dr. Bishop write a letter to Peter telling the truth to him. Then he meets Alistair at the MIT and he tries to convince the astrophysicist to give up his intent. He also discloses what has happened to Peter and corrects his formula that has a mistake. What will Alistair do?

"White Tulip" is another great episode of "Fringe". The intriguing story is again well resolved and Walter finds the best solution about Peter. It is great to see Peter "RoboCop" Weller again with an excellent participation. My vote is eight.
