Trivia

While talking to his fellow diner, Dr. Silva states that he is quoting Samuel Clemens. Samuel Clemens is the real name of Mark Twain, suggesting that in the alternate universe, Samuel Clemens never used the pen name Mark Twain-- another way in which the alternate universe is very similar, but slightly changed.

Goofs

When Mona is first examining the insect she says it is Coleoptera possibly Archostemata (a suborder of the order Coleoptera). Coleoptera is the correct name for the order of insects commonly called "beetles" (which she refers to just after by saying that the airship terminal is an unusual place for "beetles") and have the character trait of "sheathed wings" from which it gets its name. However, the insect she is examining has neither wings nor sheaths for them but is made up of overlapping segments on the back of its exoskeleton more in-line with the order Blattaria commonly called "Cockroaches" and even though this is an alternate universe the meaning of the Greek words koleos, "sheath"; and pteron, "wing", thus "sheathed wing" and "Coleoptera" would probably not have been different.

In the parallel universe, the Fringe Division investigates a case where a man was eaten from inside out by an extinct beetle. Meanwhile Broyles is considered missing and Lincoln is the head of the division. Olivia welcomes her boyfriend Frank that has just returned from Texas and wants to propose her.

"Immortality" is another important episode of "Fringe", this time in the parallel universe. Olivia, Lincoln and Charlie compose a great Fringe Division and every viewer is certainly looking forward to see what will happen when they learn the fate of Colonel Broyles. The evil Walternate is happy now that he believes will return to his universe and activate the Doomsday Machine. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Immortality"
