In the future, the Observers rule and humans that survived the purge serve them. There are still a small number of people fighting for the resistance, and one of them has discovered one of the original Fringe team in the form of Walter protected in amber. As the resistance attempts to get rid of the Observers, we get a glimpse into a rather dark dystopian future. Written by kamas716

Crazy Credits

Opening text which scrolled upward on screen: 'They came from the future. At first, they only watched. Arriving at key moments in human history. We called them OBSERVERS. But in 2015 they stopped watching... and seized control. Citizen uprisings proved bloody and futile. Those who survived became known as "Natives." In an attempt to show their allegiance, some Native factions became "Loyalists" and were marked by the OBSERVERS. The original FRINGE TEAM fought the invasion, but was quickly defeated. FRINGE DIVISION was allowed to continue at a reduced capacity, but only to police the Natives. The resistance was quickly overcome ...or so they thought.' [the word "OBSERVERS" was written in red text, while all other text was white against the black background.] See more »

Fringe's Magnum Opus?
28 October 2015 | by bnevs18See all my reviews

IMO, there are several different universes at play...we shall call them A (for the original one the pilot started off with), B (for A's counterpart), 85 (for the 1985 episodes), C (for the new timeline where Peter is 'trapped'), D (for C's counterpart), and now F. I had found myself not liking season 4 so much because, for some reason, I was not interested in universes C and D...A was the one that I was interested in. But my first taste of universe F has me enthralled, and I could take a good 10+ episodes of this before going back to the original universe...but will it? A cheap ploy to stave off cancellation? Perhaps, but as far as my first look at F, Im all in for another season.
