Grey MattersWhere did Jessup go? When will Peter find out what Walter did to him? The shapeshifter's leader Thomas Jermone Newton (Sebastian Roche of 'Odyssey 5') is cutting brain matter out of mental patients heads starting with Mr Slater (Jeff Perry of 'Wild Things' and 'Nash Bridges') This makes them completely sane, mostly because it wasn't their brain matter to start with.
Newton aka frozen head guy is very polite and nice and he knows what Walter did to Peter. Which makes one wonder why no attempt to get Peter back has been made and where Peter's real father is. I liked the Lovecraft references in this ep. Peter broods. Olivia points out that old Walter was a jerk. Newton grabs Walter to get some info and make threats about him losing his son, again.
Peter sure likes kicking down doors. We get more info on the other side, it seems a blight has killed all the trees and grass but how? Newton gets away to be bad another day. He's a better baddie than Jones in season 1 that's for sure. Dr Bell turns out to have been behind the brain tissue switching which means he drove three people mad and left them to rot in loony bins for 14 years. This was okay but will TPTB pull the trigger on the Peter reveal already?!?!?
"Frozen heads don't just get up and walk into places. I mean the dead don't rise out of their graves and perform midnight surgery."
"No I know, but this one did."
"From what I know of your father going crazy made him a better person."
"Would try to open a corridor from our world to the other side. I managed to infer that the results would be less than desirable."
"How are things on your side?"
"Worse I'm told."
"In theory he shouldn't be able to, but in theory he should still be a frozen head."
"I know why you built it, the door. I know what you lost. now are you going to pretend that you're willing to lose him again?"
"You so much as twitch and you won't have a head left to refreeze."
