Fringe Season 2, Episode 4: We Did Expect More Questions Than Answers, Right?

Now that we saw that William Bell told Olivia, do we have answers? Well, obviously, not yet, else this would end up being a really long chase scene.

Setting aside the fact that Livy drunk a worm smoothie without the strawberry flavoring, and the fact that it took a bell to trigger all those memories, I think we have most of the underlying questions for this season of Fringe intact. Two universes collide, Nina Sharp said: inevitably there'd be a battle until only one universe survives, since we're built to do just that. In the words of "Willam", it's "the great last storm".

No further details, really--if they gave away everything, it'd mean we'd see less of Leonard Nimoy, if not at all--but I'm interested in seeing that guy whose eyes opened at the end of last night's episode. We have, it seems, a new villain. Now the chase is to prevent this guy from opening the gate, although I have this feeling he's just small fry compared to whoever's on the other side that's behind this whole thing.

Interpreting his warning may have been too late--Livy telling "Charlie", may his soul find eternal peace, complicating things--but there's still so much to cover. Like, why exactly did William go to the alternate universe? What else does he know? What role does Livy have in stopping this thing? (Remember the medical tests? It's more than certain that she's able to do some fringe-y stuff, and that should come into play in the future.) Better yet, what role does William have? Livy, after all, isn't trusting him, and even if things look a bit clearer after last night, you realize that there's still a lot of gray areas to account for.

We may have entered a new phase on Fringe, but that doesn't mean we're all through with it. When the universes really collide, oh, get your medicine ready.

One last thing. The other story this week involved Walter and Peter bringing in Rebecca, also known as the girl who saw those shape-shifters before all this happened. After the experiment, and before she heads home with Walter, she had this farewell moment with Peter. Is it just me, or did she see that shape-shifter aura in Peter? I thought one scene had Peter with some light surrounding him--and no, it's not just the sunshine. I'm thinking that the other-siders have already infiltrated our side, and that Walter didn't really get Peter from the other side, but a shifter posting as him.

Or maybe it's because Peter is from the alternate universe. I think I really need my headache medicine.

First of all: wow, what an episode! So much input, but as said before, to some degree more confirmation than actual news.
To Peter/not Peter: Remember Ep. 1.20 "There's more than one of everything". The bald guy (shifter?) says this exact sentence to Walter while giving him a coin. Later Walter is seen walking to a grave saying "Peter Bishop 1978-1985". He then lays the coin crying on top of the headstone.I think it's safe to say that from that point on any speculation regarding Peter was well founded.I started to suspect that Peter was from another Universe - as said: there's more than one of everything. So Walter original son is dead and he got (himself?) a replacement.?
Also worthwhile to notice: at the beginning of the first season Walter has a glitch opposite Agent Dunham when he asks her if she is aware of the medical history of Peter. When she negates, he pretends the question was of no importance.
There's something fishy going on with Peter, that's for certain.
But I, for one, don't believe he's a shifter. To be honest, I don't want him to be...

I've totally thought that Peter was from an alternate universe for a few episodes now. It makes sense that Walter's real son actually died when he was "sick" and Peter is indeed a replacement.

Walter gave Rebecca's the ability to see things that don't belong in that universe; things that don't fit in.She see's an aura around shape-shifters not because they're shape-shifters, but because they came from the alternate universe—just as Peter did.

thefonz ...that was exactly what i was going to say... peter isn't a shape shifter... juste from a other univers
