Where is Peter Bishop on 'Fringe'?

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.

    I want Peter back. He was a good part of the story. I love this show I hope it never gets cancelled. Why do these big wigs get rid of the orginal cast we fall in love with? Get rid of the big wigs...Leave well enough alone. I love the inter action between Walter and Peter.

    I am looking forward to Peter's return. None of the characters are as likeable in a world without him. It was an interesting episode, though.

    Watched it with high expectations and loved every moment of it. One thing that keeps revolving in my mind- did I miss something or there was no explanation about how the two universe came to this co-existence ? Peter's illness prompted Walter to cross into the other world so without this what event triggered it ?

    Absolutely psyched that Fringe is back on the air.. Can't wait to see what crazy storylines they have in store for us this season!

    BTW, this is one of the best storylines on TV at the moment. This series is awesome!

    I think they changed the past where the Observer saved Peter from drowning with Walter... and instead let him drown. So Peter didn't exist in either universe. His influence is still showing, people realize they are missing something, and some events turned out similar to when Peter did exist. The device the Observer built to 'erase' someone (perhaps himself from causing the whole problem in the first place) will probably be given to Walter to examine at some point, and they will undo Peter's dissapearance. At least, that's my guess.

    Let's hope some decision maker at Fox reads these comments to learn we love Fringe and want to see it stay on the air as thought provoking entertainment and damn good TV.

    I'm so glad to have Fringe back on TV! Such an awesome show. What will be interesting is the sympathetic observer. He can't seem to do what he's supposed to do (and I think that was to eliminate Walter). He's been following these people for a long time and he seems to have formed an affinity for them. I wonder if he won't put Peter back into their lives somehow.

    I think Peter is in the alternate world that his dad created and that is where Peter is actually meant to be. It should be an interesting season to see how thing unfold. I am excited!!!

      Come on now, he's not Waldo!

      I think personally, he is just between worlds, not really here or there. And the observer couldn't destroy him, so hopefully they will be able to "remember" and bring him back.
