    I love Olivia, she showed so much emotion when thinking about Charlie! Especially the “You’ll be fine” scene.

    Wow, was that the deafening sound of paint drying that I heard last night? What else could have kept me awake through 2.05?

    Just going through the checklist that would have made for a welcome intrusion at ANY point in last night’s episode, I can quickly come up with 1) action 2) suspense 3) danger 4) shapeshifters 5) the ‘coming storm’ storyline 6) any inkling of ‘over there’ 6) a William Bell sighting 7) Slusho

    And, how am I supposed to believe that Olivia and Charlie were such close buds when a shapeshifter who knew jack squat about the man whose identity he was assuming, was able to fool Olivia for six freaking weeks? Olivia’s emotional response last night was so unbelievable given how easily she was duped by the evil impostor. It’s one thing to ‘know’ someone by their appearance, but if I’m asked to believe that Olivia and Charlie had some sort of special bond, then I can only assume that it was the shallowest special bond in FBI history.

    And that whole pencil and paper routine with Olivia at the graveyard? How bad was that? THAT was soap opera bad.

    Josh Singer (writer of 2.05), you’re the weakest link…GOODBYE!

      Whilst I was satisfied by Olivia’s emotional reaction to Charlie’s death, etc, you do make some good points. I think the hardest thing for me to swallow is that Evil Charlie was around for 6 weeks – I still can’t get over that. Unless they explain that the shapeshifters are able to assume the memories (etc) of the people they take-over, it will be even more implausible.

      But I do hope we’ll see some more reference to the amount of deception that Olivia endured. I mean, this is Olivia we’re talking about – a woman who HATED it when small-timers like Esterbrook gave her the run around, so there should be more fall-out from the shapeshifter infiltration.

      That said, Olivia is getting stronger (what doesn’t kill you, and all that), and there’s still time yet. So hopefully the writers are paying attention to the details in the long run!

        I agree it does come across as a bit of a stretch to believe that shapeshifter Charlie was there for six weeks and no one noticed anything strange. However, I do think there are a couple of factors that could make it a little more understandable.

        For one, though they maybe could have looked into the situation in the hospital basement a little more carefully, for the most part, they had no reason to doubt “Charlie” or suspect him of anything. As Olivia expressed in Momentum Deferred, she was no longer afraid for her life because as far as they were concerned, the shapeshifter was dead. We can point out all sorts of inconsistencies that should have brought up suspicion, but the fact is that they were comfortable with the facts as they saw them and they believed that Charlie had killed the shapeshifter. Whatever facts they had from that event, it was apparently good enough for them. So they were guilty of being a little too quick to accept things for how they appeared and for getting complacent, but when you consider that, they easily could have missed clues that Charlie wasn’t who he appeared to be simply because they weren’t looking.

        Along those same lines, they’d moved on beyond the events of the premiere and Olivia had other things on her mind. After all that had happened to her, it only makes sense that she wouldn’t be picking up on the subtle clues that she normally would have noticed if things had been a little calmer for her. I find it impressive enough that she’s simply been able to continue functioning and moving through life. It would take a lot of strength to keep going like that after all that had happened. Olivia’s good at putting on a good face but the truth is that she’s still recovering from what she’s been through. So it’s understandable that she’s not functioning at the top of her game and not noticing subtle differences in “Charlie’s” behavior. And I imagine she’s going to beat herself up over that for a long time.

        That said, I wish they would have played out the Charlie storyline a little more over the last few episodes. I would have liked to have seen more of his interactions with the members of Fringe Division during the time he was a shapeshifter. For example, they sure pushed the whole idea of Charlie helping Olivia to remember (orders from the typewriter, him telling her in the car that he’d help her) and yet we never saw him do anything. And I had been hoping that Olivia would have picked up on any inconsistencies in his behavior. I was somewhat disappointed that they figured it out from a computer image. But, it is how it is, and I felt they handled it all pretty well.

    My thoughts on this episode is that the very end scene is pointing to the whole moment from last season when Walter goes to Peters grave. I think in the coming episodes the truth about this will unfold. Who thought it was weird that Peter was having a dream about Walter going crazy when Peter was a little kid. Then the whole moment when Walter was asking him about the dream he had and it just so happened that he couldn’t remember it. Mock my words: The truth about the “other Peter” will UNFOLD!!
