Fringe: "Northwest Passage" Review Season 2, Episode 21


Fringe's sophomore season is building up to an epic 2-part finale. This episode doesn't reveal much in terms of overall Fringe mythology until the very awesome ending, and even then it just confirms what we already knew or suspected. Still, this installment deserves credit for using a different formula and giving Joshua Jackson some much-deserved time in the spotlight all by himself.


When watching this episode, I couldn't help but get this feeling that I was watching a different show. Something very much un-Fringe-like. Something...old. Yes, Twin Peaks! David Lynch's odd drama about solving a murder mystery in Washington state. In many ways this episode felt like an homage to that show, borrowing some themes and visual cues (like those wonky camera angles), and Twin Peaks was even originally called "Northwest Passage" before the pilot episode was released.
