When a specific group of guests at a wedding in Brookline, MA, suffocate from the inside out, the upsetting and disconcerting crime scene has the Fringe team investigating how the toxin was delivered and targeted. As evidence is taken into the lab, it’s discovered that the wedding ceremony was a testing ground for a weaponized science experiment. Adding to the intense lab investigation, Walter uncovers an alarming formula that reveals a link to a branch on the Bishop family tree. With the escalating threat of more deadly attacks and unexpected familial ties to the case, the Fringe team stops at nothing to prevent further catastrophic events in the all-new “The Bishop Revival” episode of FRINGE airing Thursday, Jan. 28 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

    Yes, next week should be somethin’ all right. But I care about this week. I gave it a “good”. I must see it again though, because I didn’t quite get the ending. Were they saying that the Nazis figured out time travel? That only the perp figured it out? That there are Nazi observers who actually meddle? And Walter. A little bit of old west justice? Broyles reaction was classic. A cold stare. Nothing more, and then a “Good night, Dr. Bishop”. Approval? Nothing but. Olivia had no idea how to react. It looked to me like she was a little shocked. And Peter with a “whatever works” stance. This “nothin’ episode” may have far more consequences than we think…

    I agree, FlashWriter. The story itself wasn’t necessarily compelling or emotional or intense. But it was still good. And there were many great character insights and developments. I think this episode was important for setting up events coming up the rest of the season, and I expect that, when Season 2 ends, we’ll look back at this episode and realize how important certain things were, that maybe we don’t quite understand right now.

    Quote from FlashWriter:

    That was my thought at first, but I think it’s more likely that either Josef Mengele or Robert Bishop found a way to keep the Nazi scientist fresh well beyond his sell-by date. Unless the scientist was in fact supposed to be Dr. Mengele himself? Hey, if he can clone Hitler (in “The Boys From Brazil”) surviving this long should be a piece of cake for him. :-)

    So I always wondered why Walter would have written the ZFT (Zerstörung durch Fortschritte der Technologie) manifest in German on an old typewriter. This episodes could proof that it wasn’t his manifest en typewriter, but his father’s!

    this episode was exquisite, i do wish tho that the German man with an impressive age could have survived for interrogation.
