A GIRL WITH UNEXPECTED TIES TO A MISSING SOLDIER REQUIRES SOME FRINGE INTERVENTION ON A SPECIAL UNEARTHED EPISODE FROM SEASON ONE OF “FRINGE” AIRING FOR FIRST TIME MONDAY, JANUARY 11, ON FOX (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).
After a teenage girl is pronounced brain dead, her mother takes her off life support, but when doctors operate quickly to remove her organs, the deceased girl shockingly awakens screaming an alphanumeric code. Equally as perplexing as her resurrection is that she is now somehow able to speak Russian and possesses classified information only a high-ranking soldier would know. While the girl’s mind-bending condition intensifies, Walter dusts off some old lab videos and hypothesizes the unthinkable, sending Olivia and Peter to investigate the bewildering case in an original “Unearthed” episode of FRINGE and here’s another mystery: is it an unaired episode from Season One or is it from an alternate universe?
What’s the deal?: “Unearthed” is an unaired episode from season 1, airing for the first time tonight (Monday Jan 11th), on FOX. It was filmed towards the back end of last season and has been locked away in an impenetrable vault underneath the FOX offices..until tonight. Initially, Unearthed was anticipated by many to air towards the beginning of season 2, as a stand-alone, indeed, the episode was used to advertise season 2 after the season 1 finale:

As mentioned, Unearthed is effectively a stand-alone episode from season 1 (it’s officially listed as season 1, episode 21, or “1.21″), detached from the immediate season 2 storylines – although the network surely have tongue firmly in cheek when suggesting that it might also be from an “alternate universe”. We’ll be the judge of that.
