Loeb - Massive Dynamic or ZFT

Last week there was no sign of Massive Dynamic anywhere, but we were introduced to some new bad guy group by the name of ZFT. As it turns out, another double agent, Loeb, appears to be working either for them or against them. At first I thought he must be working for them, but David Jones worked with them, and his comments contradict the idea that Loeb worked with them as well.

Jones: “The people I work with are loyal to the end. Can you say the same?

Jones: “You make two assumptions, Miss Dunham, both incorrect. The first is that there is nothing more valuable than my freedom. The second, is that I am responsible for the infection of Agent Loeb.

The first quote I assumed to be a reference to Agent Loeb, but it is possible it is a reference to John Scott. Even if that was true, why then did Agent Loeb have to go to so much trouble to get the password ‘Little Hill’? If they worked for the same company, wouldn’t he have access to that information freely? And if he didn’t have access, and is going rogue on ZFT, then Jones’ statement about his people being loyal is not quite so true. So, if Loeb doesn’t work for ZFT then who does he work for? If he works for Massive Dynamic, I would have expected there to be some clue to that…a hidden logo or something. Maybe I just missed it.

In context…the second quote made me wonder…is the assumption that Jones is the one that works for ZFT the faulty one. Perhaps Loeb does work for ZFT, and Jones does not. That would certainly make Jones’ comments ring more true.

This week, we see the return of Agent Loeb, and he is up to no good again. We also don’t see any references to Massive Dynamic. This time Agent Loeb is stealing an equation and using it to build a cloning machine. This answers the question as to whether or not he works for Massive Dynamic…we know they already have their cloning machines, and they are cloning more than just apples.

Agent Loeb has to be working for somebody. We know this because after he shoots Joanne Ostler he speed-dials someone and states “It works.” So if he doesn’t work for Massive Dynamic and he doesn’t work for ZFT, then who the blazes is he working for?  Then again, if it is not a cloning machine that Loeb is working on, but rather a matter displacement device, then that changes the order of the cards yet again.

At any rate, I really feel sorry for M.D. because it looks like they have some serious competition coming at them from more than one angle.

What’s with the sock?

When Agent Loeb falls to the floor…you can see some sort of symbol on Broyles sock.

It sort of looks like an upside down ‘G’. It may very well be the insignia for the sock brand…and I can’t match it to any Greek symbols…but I thought I would point it out just in case we see it again down the road in later episodes.

Prelude to 108 in 107

One of the items that Agent Loeb brought back from Germany with him was a copy of ‘A Christmas Carol’. This could be in reference to the red and green lights that has Walter thinking of Christmas lights or to the ‘ghost of Christmas past’ (Walter’s past at St. Claire’s hospital).

Page 47

When Agent Loeb is talking to Broyles, he mentions ‘Page 47‘…although they never show us what is on page 47, I wonder if it was a reference to J.J. Abrams’ show Alias. One of the major plot-lines was Rambaldi’s missing page…Page 47.

The Observer in Germany - 107

Well staying true to ‘Fringe’ form…The Observer snuck himself into a few frames this week. Approximately 15min 50sec in to the episode, at the airport in Germany, you can see him with his back to the camera, then he turns and walks towards the camera.

My question is…why is he always ‘observing‘ Agent Olivia Dunham? He was watching her on the subway, he was watching her at the Hotel, and now he went all the way to Germany to watch her at the airport. Wouldn’t his time be better spent peeking in through the window at Walter’s lab…I mean, that is where all the cool scientific stuff happens. I suppose he might be psychically linked to Walter, so he always knows what he is doing. Since Peter is always with Walter, and ‘observing‘ the bad guys would give away the plot line, that only leaves Olivia. Lucky her.
