Olivia made the decision to be her better self and allow the other Olivia’s memories to supersede her own, and now she is paying the consequences. “Nothing As It Seems” gets back into the monster of the week episodic format we have all come to love, with a bit of a dose of the larger story line. The Fringe event already happened in Peter’s timeline, but nothing is unfolding like it did before. Will the team figure out what is happening? Will Peter remember enough to be able to help?
Television Review: Fringe Friday: 6:02 A.M. Eastern Time to Hit the Snooze
This episode switches between both Universes to show what happens when The Machine is turned on. The count down begins to the end of the season, and the possible end of one of the Universes. I really don’t see how they can just kill off one entire Universe. I’m hoping that between the two Olivia’s and Peter they can figure out a way to save everyone. But I also don’t see how a show could continue to be about two Universes. So, I really can’t decide what the writers are going to do. The one thing that really bugged me about this episode is Walter’s incessant pity party. Major ugh factor there. Stop whining and fix things already. I do like that Astrid seems to be gaining a back bone, so we’ll see if that continues.
Preview for Tonight: Spoilery so you are warned.
