Did You Know?


Walter, flying his kite, defies the storm saying, "Strike me down you sprites, you elves, you glorious blue jets ". The lightning we normally see is an electric discharge between a cloud and the ground. In 1989, for the first time, electrical discharges were recorded between the tops of storm clouds and the ionosphere. The most common upper atmosphere lightnings are 'red sptites', 'ELVES', and 'blue jets'. See more »


When Walter and Astrid walk down the hospital corridor after visiting the cafeteria, Walter uses both hands to carry a heavy tray loaded with pudding, fruit cocktails and other things. They encounter Broyles in the hallway; although Walter never visibly puts the tray down, he starts gesticulating with one hand. His other hand remains out of the shot; so, in theory, it could still be holding the tray, but his arm does not appear to be straining to hold anything as heavy as a fully loaded cafeteria tray.

Olivia Dunham: Okay, Sam, I'm gonna make this really easy for you: I am armed and I want you to take me to the key, now.

Wow Really Rocks Hope They Wrap it up Sensibly!
30 April 2011 | by Traxman15See all my reviews

This Is Darn Good

What a Wonderful Episode, even though it Takes Many Leaps of Logic, and so On, but as In All Fringe--Logic is Never Relevant it seems here if you have been Paying Attention To Any of the Previous Episodes but I wander Pardon Me! I really Wonder if the Observers are coming Back for the End of this Season, or Will They Be Prominently Featured Next Season as so Many People are Speculating? Boy I am Really Impressed with the Writing these Past Few Shows--It is Really Getting Much Stronger every Episode seemingly--Very Good Job Writing Staff--Now Let's Wrap it up Nicely, with a Few Good Shows that Actually Make Sense, and Hopefully You Won't have to Scratch your Head too much, or View Them Repeatedly to Have them Make Sense! One Can Only Hope!

Cheers T:
