Last week, after a number of what can only be called spontaneous Human Combustion incidents, Walter theorizes that William Bell is behind the nano-technology that caused the phenomenon.
Walter follows a lead, which brings him and Astrid to a warehouse. At first things look okay, until they discover strange creatures. That’s when they men with guns come out. Astrid tries to escape with Walter, but she’s shot in the process. William ‘Billy’ Bell comes out as Walter is holding Astrid in his arms.
Meanwhile, Peter and Olivia track down a pair of destructive satellite antenna. That’s where they run into Dr. Jones. He and Peter have a grudge match, but when Jones gets the upper hand, Olivia tries out a new ability by controlling Peters body, and with that knocks Jones into the antenna which kills him – “I was the Bishop.” That show of power by Olivia is in addition to an earlier display where she saved a woman from spontaneously combusting. Here’s a season finale video to whet our appetites tonight.
Come on Astrid, you better not be dead. She was in the future, right? But the future can always change in this show. The writers look like they are really stepping up the game for the final season this fall. I’m so glad they gave Fringe enough time with season five to properly finish this story.
Here is a nice interview with Leonard Nimoy and John Noble, talking about how Bell and Bishop’s relationship has changed in this episode.
And here’s part two…
Aww, that was nice of John Noble to give Nimoy such admiration. If you haven’t started watch Fringe, then go rent or stream or borrow from your geek friends the first season so you can start catching up.
Special Shout Out to my little Geeky Niece Tyzé for giving me her perspective on the whole Walter and William Bell thing. She thought it was pretty cool that they met again.
