    Overall, this episode was great. I thought that she was going to tell Peter, but I guess she didn’t.

    Does anybody knows why Diane Kruger is not mentionned in the episode credits, even though she was playing Miranda Greene, the dead advocate in the beginning of the episode ????

      I think that it has to do with the fact that she’s Joshua Jackson’s girlfriend so she came on Fringe as some kind of “my beau is on the show, so let me come over and have fun”. You know, not like a serious guest star. It was explained in one of the on-set videos.

    I thought the episode was amazing. I feel like it did a great job of giving some key looks and connections back to the past, like the Jacksonville list, while at the same time prominently dealing with Olivia’s new secret.

    As far as I’m concerned, Anna Torv’s performance was the most important thing in this episode. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Olivia so broken before and Anna pulled it off to perfection. You could see she was heartbroken and that was so ultimately central to the plot of the episode and what eventually happened in the end…

    So to add on to that, I think the role Olivia played in ultimately making Walter see that he did indeed have to tell Peter the truth, no matter the result, was such a great touch and ending to this episode. I’m actually really glad that they decided to go with Olivia being too concerned with losing Peter to tell him the truth and in turn leading to Walter realizing he had no choice but to do what Olivia was too afraid to do.

      I agree with you, bdp…I like that the weight of revealing the truth was placed squarely on Walter’s shoulders (though it remains to be seen just “how” Peter will find out the secret).

      It was also nice to see Nina’s reversal in the encounter with Olivia. She really conveyed a calculating personality.

      And bravo to Anna and Josh for projecting the confusion and inner turmoil felt by their respective characters.

      I agree bdp, Anna Torv’s performance was transcendent. The look of relief and peace that exuded from her at the end was remarkable. (And she never looked lovlier!) But what did you think of Blair Brown performance? When Olivia went to visit Nina at MD, Nina went from guarded to minxish when she realized Olivia’s true motive. Brown put on her best “Cheshire Cat” face when she turned the tables on Oivia.

      Best supporting actress for the episode?

        Inter-Dimensional Dave and Bishop Takes Queen, I agree with both of you about Olivia’s seen with Nina Sharp. I’ve always been a big Nina fan, she just has such a great air of mystery around her. And I loved how you saw her actually seem nervous when Olivia brought up Peter’s past yet, typical Nina, she was able to quickly recover once she was able to read Olivia’s feelings for Peter and in turn planted the seed of doubt in Olivia and ultimately getting the result she wanted.

    I’m headed off to bed, but before I log off, I wanted to make a quick comment about the episode. It was great. The tension and awkwardness was so deliciously thick, it made me appropriately uncomfortable. I think that tension/awkwardnes was a key element missing from several of the episodes post ‘MD’. However, tonight, Anna Torv did a fantastic job of portraying Olivia’s inner struggle as she vascillated between keeping Walter’s secret and revealing the truth to Peter.

    Whoever directed the episode did an amazing job capturing the emotion of the of the characters. Sam Weiss who has such a different energy all together, interacts with Olivia and all her seriousness. Loved how they worked in the game of ‘Clue’.

    I would be remiss if I didn’t mention how the writers are playing around with the attraction between Olivia and Peter. Nina’s candid comments to Olivia that deflated her anger, but also gave away a truth…she’s not prepared to lose Peter, because she has come to car for him, and developed feelings for him that go beyond their working relationship. Peter senses this too, but is just as apprehensive in making anything of it. I liked how they had him address their near kiss…but also recognize that he’s come to care about their odd little family unit.

    One other thing…Astrid already knows the truth about Peter. I don’t know how I know that, but I got a gut feeling she’s simply waiting for the inevitable fallout so she can be there for Walter.

    Great episode, can’t wait to go back and re-watch to pick up on the nuances.

    There was so much to love in this episode. As a result, there’s a lot I could say, but I’m really trying to make my comments shorter, so I’ll try to be selective in what I say (or, more than likely what’ll end up happening is that I’ll just save most of my comments for Roco’s official review).

    I loved seeing Olivia’s inner struggle throughout this episode — Anna Torv portrayed those emotions perfectly and it was truly remarkable to watch. As a result, the story was engaging and flowed very well, and I found that I could feel the same kinds of things Olivia was feeling at any given moment. I loved that whole story running through the episode. It easily could have become a story that was boring, cliche, and burdensome, but the great writing and the incredible acting made it something truly special to watch. I know that, having to follow the amazing episode from last week, this episode had a lot to live up to and could have been a disappointment, but it held it’s own rather well, in my opinion.

    I’m not quite sure what I think of Olivia’s final decision to keep the secret. I understand that she cares about Peter and is scared to lose him… And what she said about some truths being more harmful than good is a pretty accurate statement. But I think she would recognize that keeping the secret would only make it worse when he finds out… and she has to know he will eventually find out. I worry that, by going that route, they’re making Olivia guilty of the same thing Walter is guilty of: being motivated by selfish reasons, which, while understandable, doesn’t necessarily make it right. And that just doesn’t fit in Olivia’s character for me. I hope that in upcoming episodes, we will continue to see her encouraging/pushing Walter to tell Peter. Actually, I haven’t completely ruled out the theory that she may have been trying a reverse psychology approach on Walter. She may have ultimately decided that Peter should know, but she shouldn’t be the one to tell him. So she decided to leave it up to Walter, and thought that maybe by advocating that Peter shouldn’t be told, she could push him in the direction of choosing to tell Peter himself. I still need to think about all that some more.

    As for the rest of the episode, I think we can safely say that we have officially met our first Mythalone episode. And I liked it. In a sense, it was a stand alone episode, and it didn’t really progress a lot of the over all story and the case was separate from everything else. But it addressed many important things and it had a ton of continuity. I loved the return of Sam Weiss, the focus of Cortexiphan, the reference to Intrepus, and mentions of people like Nick Lane. Even fan favorites like Harris and Rachel got mentions in this episode.

    Bishop Takes Queen mentioned Olivia’s meeting with Nina. That was a very fascinating scene. Actually, I found it to be a classic example of Nina’s clever, manipulative strategies. When Olivia first declared that she knew the whole truth about Peter and everything else that happened at that time, Nina was clearly stunned and uncomfortable. She seemed worried and even vulnerable — not something we see all too often. But I think at that moment, Nina could see how much Olivia cares for Peter and she used that to her advantage. She was able to use that observation to take the subject matter and turn it away from her and back onto Olivia. Suddenly it was Olivia who was uncomfortable and vulnerable while Nina was back in control and able to keep whatever secrets she has. It’s kind of scary how Nina is an expert at manipulating conversations to go in her favor. And, while I’m on this topic, did anyone else get the impression that, when Nina said something to the effect of how she is aware that when you work closely with someone, you can start to develop feelings for them, that she was speaking from personal experience? Could it be that that happened between her and Walter or William?

    I got that impression, too, mlj…but my first thought was Broyles rather than Bell or Walter. Of course, given Nina’s undying loyalty with Bell, perhaps it is him. It’ll be interesting to discover exactly whom she was referring to, I’m sure.

    And you’re right about that conversation between she and Olivia. I got the feeling that Olivia’s primary reason for going to Nina was her attempt to unburden her anger about everything tied to the truth about Peter, the adverse and deadly consequences of the cortexiphan trials, Bell, Massive Dynamics, because she can’t really unload on Walter. Too much is at stake, but Nina being the expert manipulator that she is, she whipped it on Olivia…used her emotions against, but also touched a deeper truth…feelings for Peter she isn’t completely comfortable with.

    I actually was rather bored by the episode…(nervous laugh) Maybe because I believed the entire time that Olivia wouldn’t spill the beans to Peter, and also that the “targets” were Cortexiphan kids. I dunno, maybe I was in a bad mood last night, cuz when I think about it there were so many things that I liked…

    1. Sam Weiss. When they showed the shot of the bowling alley I was like, “Yes!”
    2. Finally, a Nick Lane mention, a Nick Lane relative, a Nick Lane PHOTO…wahoo!
    3. Happy Peter. Practically hugging Walter, cheerfully delivering coffee…it made it sad because he’s not going to be that happy for long. I think Olivia is wrong – Peter won’t take the news as well as she thinks. But we’ll see. :)

      “Maybe because I believed the entire time that Olivia wouldn’t spill the beans to Peter”

      But see, that’s just it. I never thought Olivia would tell Peter in this episode, either. I was nearly 100% sure that they wouldn’t have Peter find out like that, this soon. But for me, it wasn’t the question of “is Peter going to find out this episode” that made it so intriguing to watch, it was more the way they addressed the issue, the journey over the course of the episode, and the way we saw Olivia agonizing over the position she’s in and constantly jumping back and forth with her decision of “I’m going to tell him” to “I can’t tell him.” I think they portrayed that whole dilemma in a wonderful way that included a lot of depth and a lot of emotion.

    Hmm…a slow mover of an episode, but I liked it…although the wife did not. I think I appreciated it more because I knew about all the subtle continuity details that were woven into this episode (everything from Bowling Yoda’s subtle speech about Olivia wearing the drab clothes and being a “soldier” to the brief mention of the Pyro Twins from season 1). Very good episode, very continuity heavy..but I’m glad to hear them referencing things from Season 1.

    I wasn’t convinced about Cancer Dude’s motivations at all though. Why was he killing cortexiphan kids? He made it sound like it was an accident but he was pretty deliberately hunting them down. But..we finally get reference to the mysterious individual who was driving the “activations” in season 1. I knew it wasn’t David Robert Jones! Will we finally hear about ZFT in season 2?

    A decent episode overall…it just felt like a “glue” episode, tying things together before it gets really good (ignoring the upcoming musical waste-of-time promo for “Glee”).

    Does anybody get the feeling that Sam Weiss is training Olivia according to the ZFT manual? He tells her she looks like a solider. Didn’t David Robert Jones tell her she would be a willing participant?

      I think it was something like first they will be unwilling, or would resist the idea of being activated. As far as Sam goes…the producers did say we’d learn more about him, so, I suppose he could have a connection to ZFT.

      Which leads me to the idea that when Olivia asked him about himself last night, his comments seemed a bit random, but perhaps they weren’t. One thing he said was that he’s older than he looks, which I thought was an odd comment coming from a guy. It makes me think of the kid from Inner Child, and the suggestion that he was a lot older than he looked, but due to the conditions he grew up under, he looks younger. It may be nothing…against, just a random, flippant comment, but it struck me as odd.

      Like that kid, he does seem to have a way to read her and access what she needs…almost telepathically.

      • mlj102 says

        Yeah, I also thought his comments about being older than he looks and barely able to remember his childhood were pretty suspicious. My first theory is that he’s something like the Observers. Of course, he’s not one of the Observers, but maybe connected somehow. The Observers don’t appear to age, so if he doesn’t appear to age, that could explain him being older than he looks. The Observers also have a unique perspective and seem to see the whole picture, which allows them to understand a lot of the little details and what’s going on and what’s going to happen — which is similar to the way Sam is somehow able to read Olivia like a book. Obviously there are still a lot of questions with this theory, but it could be possible.

        Another thought I just had is that he could somehow be connected to Hoffman, from The Bishop Revival. In that episode, Hoffman apparently worked with Robert Bishop, yet in somewhere around 70 years since that time, he didn’t appear to have aged a day. So maybe whatever happened to Hoffman to allow him to travel in time, or stay looking young, or whatever, also happened to Sam.

          Huh…I made a similar comment below about Sam possibly having a connection to Robert Bishop. Great minds converge. ;-)

          Another thought: I wonder if there’s any significance to Sam always fixing, cleaning, or calculating something every time Olivia comes to visit. I know he’s at work, but it really caught my attention this time, since he was fixing one of the machines in ‘Dream Logic’ when he told Olivia to jumble.

            Yeah, I saw your comment below, but since yours focused more on Robert Bishop and mine was more focused on Hoffman, I thought they were separate enough that I would post it on my own, anyway. I’m definitely not trying to steal credit for your theories!

            By the way, I think your Robert Bishop experiment theory is quite intriguing. Wouldn’t it be just like Fringe to reveal that Walter’s father had been responsible for various drug trial experiments just like Walter was with cortexiphan? That would certainly be an interesting development!

    Very interesting episode. I liked that they tied the story into several threads from previous episodes, referencing such people and things as the Cortexiphan kids, Sanford Harris, and Intrepus–which seems to be having a run of bad luck ever since Olivia arrested its CEO way back in “The Cure”. I knew something fishy was up when I recognized the name Lloyd Becker, but couldn’t recall from where.

    The tension was so thick in this episode, you could practically cut it with a knife. Olivia and Peter seemed so awkward in their scenes together, I frequently found myself cringing in sympathy. Some of you have complained about the episode being “slow”, but I find that’s one of the things I like most about Fringe–the directors aren’t afraid to slow things down, to let the camera linger on a face or an object, to show an emotional reaction, to allow the actors to pause and think about what they’re saying–you know, the way “real” people do. :D We’re so used to TV shows and movies that move at breakneck speed and rely on rapid-fire editing to make the scenes move even faster, that I find deliberately paced shows like Fringe very refreshing. The slower pace allows one to breathe, to think about the characters and storyline, to experience the characters’ emotions along with them.

    Just a short note. Sam Weis is rapidly becoming one of my favorite characters and I was really happy to see him. I get such a different dynamic from him. It’s like, “Hi, Sam. Good to see you again. How’s it hangin’, bro.” His interactions with Olivia are classic. I can’t help comparing Olivia when she first met him to who we saw in this episode. She’s a Weis believer now, no doubt about it. What? Play Clue? Now? No problem, come right in.

      And help me down this bottle of whiskey (assuming) that I’ve already been hitting pretty hard. LOL. I don’t think we’ve seen Olivia drink as much alcohol during the entire episode than she’s done in the past two episodes. Girlfriend was struggling something terrible.

      Speaking of Sam’s visit, I finally got what the title of the episode meant…Olivia needed a clue to help her figure out these seemingly random clues. Makes me wonder if Sam wasn’t trying to get her to figure out something about himself with his cryptic reply on being older and taller than he seems.

      Ooooh, a thought: What if Sam is an experiment conducted by Robert Bishop? A trial quite similar to the cortexiphan trials, but one that gave him sort of a psychic ability? We’ve already met two characters who apparently knew him or knew of him, so, what if Sam, like Olivia is one of the more “adjusted” candidates of Robert Bishops trials?

      I know, pretty out there. ;-)

        Well, the thing here is that she never seems drunk. I don’t know what to make of that. Cortexaphan keeps you sober? We manage to see her while taking that one drink when she comes home and so it looks like she’s always drinking?

        This is not to say that it doesn’t bother me…I’m overlooking it for now, but I’ve learned not to trust anybody who seems to lean on the booze. God, I’m coming off as a prude, but there it is. (Eliza Stewart didn’t die, she just migrated to the west coast.) So I hope Liz’s boozing is only temporary.

              I too have noticed that Olivia and Peter both tend to hit the booze in times of stress, and it fits into my theory that both characters are, to some extent, suffering from delayed Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder–probably due to their experiences as children. Substance abuse is often one of the symptoms, as are difficulty sleeping and problems with personal relationships. Just a thought.

    Well… I loved this episode. It was incredible the information of the past that was showed. I really don’t know why Olivia decided to keep the “top secret” of Peters and Walter, but I’m happy that he decided to tells Peter the truth, at the end.

    The Sam Weiss’ returns was one of my favorite parts. He and Clue? Good, but I still don’t understand why the title of the episode. What lab? What revolver? Some ideas?…

    Now, the Olivia and Nina’s meeting. I thought in Broyles when Nina said “the partner” part, but it could be Bell, perfectly. Hey, what if she is Bell’s sister, or somenthing like that? We’ve seen a lot of “family” stuffs in this episode… The “little odd family”, the “school” of Cortexiphan, de dead sister… i don’t know.

    Oh! That reminds me Peter!! Poor Peter!! He was laughing, smiling, being gentlemanly… And the “family” thing! I thought in that word in the second episode of the season 1. They were becoming a family, and now I know that Peter thinks like me… LOL!

    Great, great episode. I thought originally it was just going to be another standalone mystery with the backdrop of Olivia struggling with her secret, but then it turned into so much more. LOVE how they’re continuing stories; almost every little bit of dialogue in there was just dripping with mythology and references, even down to Sam’s comments to Olivia about her drab clothing (remember Nick Lane – “I wore the blacks and greys”) and about her being a “soldier.” BTW, Sam is definitely something more than we know. He “sensed” that Olivia wanted company? Is he a cortexi-kid as well, or is he possibly connected to ZFT?

    Also, I had always assumed the man who was “activating” cortexi-kids in Season 1 was William Bell, but looks like they may be going in another direction. Interesting.

    Oh, and did anyone catch the Inglourious Basterds reference from Diane Kruger? When trying to pronounce the guy’s name, she calls him “Gorlami.” I thought that was hilarious!

    but when i think about all the other weird stuff it doesnt seem so bad in comparison.. i think i was just thrown off from the beginning.. i LOLed when the woman turned around in the car covered in tumors.. it just looked like she had a bad allergic reaction..
    walters theory about chi and tantric sex just seemed like a reach to throw in something esotoric to pique peoples interest.. i dont think tantric sex and chi can be justly summarized in a Walter rambling..

    This will need to be in the observations later. There are Clue game items strewn about the episode. Dagger, Candlestick, Revolver, Rope, Lead Pipe and Wrench are the murder weapons in the Clue game. I have found a few so far. The Dagger was in Lloyd’s apartment on the mantle, the Rope was in the foreground view of the lab before the tantric sex conversation, the Lead Pipe was being removed from the bowling alley equipment by Sam Weiss.

    Well, I was quite entertained by this episode.
    Points to Point Out:
    1) Nina is a master manipulator! She easily turned Livia’s attack back at her, leaving Olivia questioning her decision.
    2) Peter is bad at reading Olivia. Yeah, he could tell is was all wierd around him, but he guessed the wrong why. Speaking of guesses
    3) Either Sam is falling for Olivia, or he’s a creeper with no life. Even my best friends don’t show up in the middle of the night to keep me company!
    4) Good job, Walter! You have finally stepped up and decided to do what we’ve been yelling at the tv for you to do: Tell Peter The Truth.
    5) Olivia is quick to put her guard down when dudes start crying. Really, Liv, even I would have kept my only weapon up, in case he pulled a fast one.
    6) Broyles and Nina aren’t exactly on the best terms right now. He didn’t say it, but his attitude, tone and face scream “IBLAMEYOUIBLAMEYOUYOUALMOSTCOSTMEMYBESTAGENTIBLAMEYOU”.
    Nina covently ignored this.

    I love the Sam Weiss charachter and hope we see a lot more of him, whatever his role is. He’s interesting, from the second he shows up in an episode. I love the above speculations about what he might be, or what purpose he might have. I can’t help but remember that Nina sent Olivia to him, and wonder what mission he’s carrying out for Nina and Massive Dynamic? Unless I’m remembering incorrectly? I did watch every episode in 3 weeks to catch up with this season, and may be confusing my facts. Would love to hear more thoughts on this. This was one of my favorite episodes, actually. It was one of the first times I actually believed Olivia was in danger; I thought that was well-done. But I have a hard time believing she wouldn’t have drawn her gun immediately. I can hardly wait for Roco’s review!

      Well, we must remeber, livia’s been drinking alot, and the guy she’s fallen in love with is from another/alternate universe. She’s not herself.

    The Observer was in the opening scene, walking in front of that woman’s car at a crosswalk.
    This episode wasn’t very memorable for me.

    In series 2 e12, Olivia in the Lab with a revolver, she is drinking scotch. It is driving me insane that I cannot read the label on the bottle. I can see 1805, and I think the word Willow underneath a word with two “O” ‘s in it . I have googled, etc, with no success. Any ideas?
