Fringe Season 2 Ep 8 Review


An Observer (Peter Woodward of ‘Crusade’ who is the son of the late Edward Woodward) abducts a woman. He has fancy tech, a liking for chillies and can catch bullets. Who are the Observers? Walter seems to know as he acts suspiciously as Peter and Olivia try to find the missing woman.

Peter will no doubt figure out his origins mainly because Walter acts so damn suspiciously. We get clues about the Observer’s weird writings which Walter can read but he doesn’t tell anyone this.

Peter and Olivia (and her product placed car) learn that Observers have appeared at historical events and their activity is increasing. The Observer turns out to have abducted the woman because she was due to die in a plane crash. He saved her because he loves her.

Observers aren’t allowed to interfere except to correct a mistake that is of their own making which raises the question. How did the original Peter die? What is the arrangement that has allowed Walter to keep this Peter all these years?

Peter kicks in a door and shows he has ways to dealing with men pointing guns at his head, how often has this sort of thing happened to him. Peter is able to use the Observer’s weapon which nobody else can do. Is it because he is from the other universe?

This was good but who are the Observers and what are they looking for? Walter knows stealing Peter was wrong and that he’ll lose him when the truth comes out.

Best Lines:
Please don’t take my son. Your friend and I had a deal. We had an arrangement. I know what I did was wrong.....”

“1884. Apparently it was a great year for blubber.”

“Look how happy she is. It’s a shame things are about to get so hard for her.”
