When last season's finale for "Fringe" ended, the all-knowing Observers informed us that Peter Bishop had been erased from existence, which got a collective response of "Errr... wha??" from fans.
Well, now we finally see just where things are going. Olivia and Fauxlivia are now working together across the two worlds (we have yet to see Walternate this season), with the laboratory where Peter stepped into the mysterious machine as something of a bridge.
But the loss of Peter is something of an "It's a Wonderful Life" scenario, where we see that quite a few things are different since he's not around.
For one thing, Walter is a bit more of a loose cannon now, to the point where he doesn't really venture out of his laboratory all that much (Astrid is now an investigator for Fringe Division out in the field, with a video linkup to Walter).
The latest case brings Olivia face to face with Lincoln Lee, who we know from the alternate world, and ends up getting introduced to the world of Fringe Division, sort of taking the place of Peter in this reality.
And where is Peter? Popping up throughout the episode for a split second here and there... and finally freaking out Walter, when he appears in a reflection in his television set.
I enjoyed the look at yet another alternate version of the world of "Fringe" (complete with a different colored opening sequence, amber), and anytime the Observers show up, it's bound to be a good episode.
We're just getting a taste of what's in store for this new season, and actually, I'm just happy to see that "Fringe" is still on the air at all.
