The Beginning of the New Life of Peter
17 March 2017 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

"Subject 13" is a filler episode of "Fringe" dedicated to Peter and his parents. "Subject 13" shows how Peter reacted to his new family; how Elizabeth Bishop convinced the boy that she is his mother; how Peter met Olivia for the first time; and how Walternate learns what happened to his beloved son. This corny and unnecessary episode breaks the engaging sequence of "Fringe" and should have been presented when the audiences learned that Peter is from the Parallel Universe. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Subject 13"
