What does this pattern mean?

There is something very weird going on in the hospital room where Walter tries to talk to Dashel. A pattern in the way things are laid out. Here is the pattern template …

Now look at the drawings on the wall…

I thought maybe this pattern was Braille, but that can’t be right because braille only goes 3 dots high, and the first group is 4 dots high. Then I thought maybe it is Morse code. The pattern varies slightly from image to image so it could be

4 dots - ‘H’ then dot,dash,dash - ‘W’ giving us ‘H.W.’

4 dots - ‘H’ then dash,dash,dot - ‘G’ giving us ‘H.G.’

This is the only explanation I can find…anyone have any other ideas??

The Observer and the butterfly

Once again ‘The Observer’ seems to be in Olivia’s vicinity, only this time he actually seems to be looking in the direction of the red castle where the kidnapped boy was being held…

I also noticed a butterfly on the side of the box…I believe that this is our prelude for next week’s episode.

SPOILER ALERT: highlight to read

The team investigates the suicide of a Massive Dynamic employee, who jumped out a window to escape attacking butterflies.

The Apple

Near the end of the episode we watch as Agent Loeb places an apple into a mysterious contraption…

The forbidden fruit

and then he pulls what looks like the same apple out of the other side. I don’t think this was the same apple. I think ‘they‘ used the equation to build their own cloning machine. My reasoning? The apple glyph with the twin fetuses for starters…need I say more? Now if I just knew who ‘they‘ were !!

It is also possible that it is not the same apple at all. Maybe the equation was some sort of matter-displacement formula, and he is actually pulling the same apple out the other side of the safe…through the safe wall.

SPOILER ALERT: highlight to read

This would be a prelude to Episode 10…“While investigating a series of bank robberies, the team is shocked to find one of the suspects trapped inside a vault wall, as if it has solidified around him.” If this is the case, then perhaps the apple is just a reference to ‘the forbidden fruit’…the desire for forbidden knowledge.

Green and Red dot mystery semi-solved

Remember the red and green dots that were popping up all over the place…

binoculars-104, kayak-101, hat-104

Well it turns out they are a series of lights, that when flashed at a certain frequency and wavelength will put someone in a hypnotic state, making them susceptible to suggestion and causing them to lose time or black out. Walter worked on this very thing for an advertising company but was not successful. Obviously someone has perfected it and is using it for evil. Here they are under the hood of Joanne’s car…

I have no problem with the dots on Rogue’s hat…he was a bad guy, but what about the dots in the viewer of The Observer’s binoculars? I was under the impression he was kind of a good guy…or at least neutral. And what about the kayak that belonged to Olivia’s uncle? Was he a bad guy, or perhaps he is another observer. I look forward to learning what “ZENO” means, maybe that would answer some questions. Here they are again in the dungeon where Ben was being held…

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.
