Fringe 3.11 "Reciprocity" Recap

According to, the definition of reciprocity is a reciprocal state or relation, a mutual exchange. When you give something to someone, be it tangible or not, they give it back and vice versa.

As Walter said in last night’s episode of Fringe, every relationship is reciprocal. Between man and woman, man and child, person and pet… Every relationship is about the give and take. In last night’s episode it was about man and Walternet’s machine.

But before I get too far ahead of myself, let’s take it back and recap tonight’s episode from the beginning…

The episode begins as the fringe division crew is on the scene with Nina Sharp at Massive Dynamic’s off site hanger where the doomsday machine is being assembled and tested. Whereas Olivia mentions it’s bigger than she imagined, Peter supposes, "it’s just big enough to destroy a couple of universes." No one at Massive Dynamic seems to know anything about the workings of the machine but as Peter is in the house, things start happening. Specifically, the electromagnetism in the room spikes, the computers start going crazy and Peter gets a nosebleed.  (Oh hey! Am I watching Lost?!) Read More...

I have to wonder if the show adopted Fauxlivia and Walternate from Fan Blogs about the show. Its odd to come up with the term in episode 10 all of a sudden. Seems like a nod to Fringe followers.
