Tomorrow night’sÂ FringeÂ episode “The Boy Must Live” marks the show’s return after a thankfully short winter hiatus. Having seen it in its entirety, I can tell you that the episode does a great job exploring some of the show’s oldest mythology. With only two FringeÂ Fridays left, make sure to tune in on January 11th and 18th!
Fringe‘s last episode before Christmas was “Anomaly XB-6783746“, which packed the one-two punch of Nina’s sacrifice at the hands of Windmark and the revelation of Donald’s identity. It should come as no surprise to anyone that part of Walter’s plan to track down September involves LSD:
This particular moment brings some much-needed levity to the episode, and serves as a nice little call-back. As much as Walter has changed, he still lacks even the most basic filters; and it’s nice to see the old Tank getting some use again before the end!
This last clip is actually one of my favourite moments from the episode, and answered one of my pressing questions following Walter’s connection with Michael in “Anomaly XB-6783746”: Walter’s memories of the original timeline have been restored.
