Olivia’s Flashback – 203

Fringe - 203 Fracture | Posted by Scully

Here are some screen caps of Olivia’s flashback.  Most of them are direct shots from the finale last year “There’s More Than One Of Everything”.  Some of the shots were upside-down or mirror images, which we have seen Fringe use before (Inner Child for one).  But the last two shots are different.  The last shot, I believe is a close-up of WIlliam Bell’s face, but I’m not sure.  The second last shot is of William Bell using his oxygen mask, which we did not see last year.  Either it was from part of a scene that was cut or it’s from a scene that we have yet to see.

Click below to view the rest of the screen caps.

The Observer in 203 – “Fracture”

Fringe - 203 Fracture | The Observer | Theories & Speculation | Posted by Scully

By the time the episode seemed like it was wrapping up, I was thinking “I missed him, where was he?”.  Well, as it turns out, the question this week was not ‘where is he?’, it was ‘what is he up to?’.

Last year there was a lot of speculation as to the intentions of our very bald friend, but I always maintained that he is on our side.  I have to admit that this week, I am starting to doubt that theory.  They have definitely given us reason to re-think all of our previous notions about the Observer.

I think the question about why he is always carrying a briefcase has been answered.  But another, very important question has come to the surface…What is in the briefcase?

Here is the theory in Colonel Raymond Gordon’s words…

Fringe’s Human Mutant Not Possible, Says Expert

.
In “The Night of Desirable Objects,” Agent Olivia Dunham—sidelined by a car accident last week—traded her hospital gown for a gun and dove right back into the action. Fringe has already flirted with genetic mutation in animals, but this week, Dunham, mad scientist Walter Bishop, and his son, Peter, dealt with an actual mutant—and not one of the fuzzy X-Men variety. PM sat down with Dr. Richard Myers of Stanford University’s Department of Genetics and the president and director of the Hudson Alpha Institute for Biotechnology to find out if real-life mutants are possible.

Fringe Season Two Premiere Misrepresents Head Trauma

.
In the first season finale of Fringe, we left FBI agent Olivia Dunham in an alternate dimension where she was to meet with mysterious Massive Dynamic CEO William Bell. (His offices were located in the still-standing Twin Towers and, oh yeah, JFK is still alive. So are all of the Beatles … and they’re on a reunion tour.) In the second season premiere, “A New Day in the Old Town,” we didn’t find out just what Dunham and Bell talked about—but we did get a healthy dose of medical pseudoscience. Popular Mechanics talked to Justin Sattin, an assistant professor of neurology at the School of Medicine and Public Health at the University of Wisconsin and medical director of the UW Health Comprehensive Stroke Program, to separate the fact from fiction.
