Trivia

"Northwest Passage" was the original title of the seminal cult TV show Twin Peaks (1990). Like this episode, "Twin Peaks" was also about an FBI agent teaming up with a local sheriff in a small Pacific Northwest town to solve the murders of local young women. Also, like Twin Peaks, the small town is known for its delicious pies. See more »

Goofs

When Peter drives in his car just before he enters the crime scene by the diner, in the car he wears a three-days beard, when getting out of the car throughout the scene at the crime scene the beard is gone, and after that in the sheriff's car the beard is there again. See more »

Quotes

Peter Bishop: [reading words engraved on a pen] "Find the crack" - that is the worst police slogan I've ever heard.
Sheriff Tracy Mathis: It's not a slogan. In the darkness, there's always a crack. It's how the light gets in.

"Northwest Passage" is another great episode of "Fringe". It is impressive the regularity of this series where most of the episodes are intriguing and well developed. Now the identity of the man that came from the other side and called "The Secretary" is disclosed and may surprise many viewers. My vote is nine.
