Clue for 117 hidden in 116

When Olivia goes to the frat house, you can see a decal on the keg that says ‘RED BALLOON LAGER’…

This foreshadowed the big red balloon in Bad Dreams, that was part of Olivia’s vision of victim, Risa Pears, in Grand Central Station.

The yellow-red-blue-clear pattern

Last week I noticed that the color yellow seemed to be very dominant in the episode (”Inner Child”).

I figured it to be a reference to the possibility that the medicine Olivia was getting as a child was yellow…

Yellow

But then this week I noticed that the magic color seemed to be red…really, really, really red…

red

OK…so that’s a lot of red, right?  I thought so too.  But it wasn’t until I noticed the close-up of the toast in Walter’s lab, that I began to wonder if there isn’t a bigger pattern here than I originally thought.

yellow-red-blue-?

yellow-red-blue-gray?

mixed

The four colors line themselves up again at the frat house, although they are not in the same order…

red-yellow-clear-blue

yellow-clear?-red-blue

pattern

If last week’s episode was dominated by yellow and this week’s episode was over-run by red, do you think next week will be littered with blue?  It seems like a possibility, but what does it mean?  Red, Yellow and Blue are the primary colors.  But what possible insight does that give us?  And that doesn’t account for the clear/gray.  Maybe it has something to do with the meaning of the colors…

yellow

YELLOW:  Like the energy of a bright sunny day, yellow brings clarity and awareness.  Clean light yellow clears the mind, making it active and alert.  It is full of creative and intellectual energy, and is the color associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra. This chakra deals with identity.

red

RED:  Red is the color most chosen by extroverts and one of the top picks of males. On the negative side red can mean temper or anger. It is associated with fiery heat and warmth. It can also mean danger (burning).  Red is the color of blood, and as such has strong symbolism as life and vitality. It brings focus to the essence of life and living with emphasis on survival.  Red is the color associated with the Root Chakra.  This chakra deals with the protection of individual integrity.

blue

BLUE:  Blue is the color of inspiration, sincerity and spirituality.  It gives a feeling of distance which  allows us to look beyond and increase our perspective outward.  The vibration of blue can be used to open energy flow where it is blocked.  Blue is the color associated with the Throat Chakra.  This chakra deals with creativity, self-expression and the search for truth.

gray

GRAY:  Gray is the true neutral color. Its energy imparts void, emptiness, lack of movement, emotion, warmth and identifying characteristics. Because of this, gray can be restful. It has a detached and isolated feeling.  Gray is also the color of sorrow. People who favor gray can be the lone wolf type or narrow-minded.

crystal

CRYSTAL:  (The closest I could find)  Crystal brings harmony to the life force.  Used for healing, meditation, chakra balancing, protection, and changing bad vibrations.  Crystal is used in expanding the mind to touch the spirit world, and enhance the beneficial life force.  Crystal and gemstone balls have been used for divination since at least medieval times. They are a traditional symbol of the occult and hidden wisdom, and much more.

colors

So, what does it all mean?

meaning

Yellow clears the mind, making it active and alert‘ could be in reference to the child and/or Olivia.  They both seem to have a more advanced mind than average.  Being able to shut lights off simply by thinking about it or knowing the thoughts of a serial killer would certainly fall under the category of ‘intellectual energy‘.

meaning

Redcan also mean danger’seems pretty self explanatory to me…murder, death, kill!!  But perhaps it is more of a reference to Walter’s struggle to correct the mistakes he made 20 years ago.  Mistakes that are costing people their lives… ‘the protection of individual integrity‘.

meaning

Where does that leave us for Blue… ‘spirituality‘?  And is the final color meant to be Gray or Crystal?  It is just another in a long line of mysteries that keeps me glued to the set every Tuesday.  I wait anxiously to see if next weeks episode confirms my color pattern theory.

Burlap Bear - Ella’s book

This may be an Easter Egg, the Next Episode Clue, or maybe nothing at all.  You be the judge…

easter egg

book

The name of this book is “Burlap Bear Goes to the Woods” by Tomas Christensen.

burlap bear

I did a lot of Googling and could not find a book by this title, or anything even close.  That means it’s fake, so it must have some sort of meaning or inference.burlap bear

It’s possible the reference here has nothing to do with the front of the book, but the inner pages instead…

Note: the red

look familiar…well it did to me…it reminds me of the claws of the hybrid creature…

The Note:

There are old notes from Exploration 1 and Exploration 7, although they are partially covered and cannot be fully read. It seems as though something interrupted Walter as he was typing his notes…because it ends during the middle of a word.

The newest note appears to have been typed with the same typewriter that the ZFT manuscript was typed with.  The image below is from the ZFT manuscript…

"Unleashed"

Synopsis:

Synopsis: As animal rights activists ransack a laboratory, they get more than they bargained for when one of the caged “animals” unleashes a ferocious appetite. Leaving grotesquely mutilated dead bodies in its wake, the scientific engineered beast with the body of a lion, claws of an eagle, fangs of a viper, skin of a rhinoceros and tail of a serpent attacks Charlie. With Charlie’s life on the line, Walter must come face-to-face with both his past and the beast.

Tidbits:

Tidbits: Charlie’s wife Sonia is portrayed by Kirk Acevedo’s real-life wife, Kiersten Warren.

Fringe Fumbles:

Character of the Week:

Walterism:

Peter: “Are you ok?  Did you take something?

Walter: ” Psychedelics?  Not since Thursday, no.”

My Thoughts:

My Thoughts: I loved this episode.  Not necessarily as a mythology episode, but as a stand alone episode, it had a lot of enjoyable moments.

unleashed

First of all, any episode that puts Walter and his craziness front and center has my vote.  Almost every scene had a little Walter-wit, which I have missed over the last few episodes.

unleashed

In the underground scene, I felt as though I was watching a horror movie.  I was on the edge of my seat.  True suspense has not really been a ‘Fringe’ emotion until last night.  I like being scared!!

unleashed

We finally get to see Charlie do something other than run along side or behind Olivia and the rest of the team.  When he was talking to his wife on the phone, and unable to tell her if he would be home for dinner, I was touched by his show of emotion.

unleashed

And lastly…are Peter and Rachel dating?  What the fringe is that about??

unleashed

The plot of the episode was not the most intriguing, and there wasn’t any new mysteries, but the other aspects, when put all together, made it one of my favorite episodes.
