Details on the Final Four Episodes of FRINGE Season 2

FOX has released official descriptions and schedule information for the final four episodes of Fringe season 2: “Brown Betty”, “Northwest Passage”, “Over There, Part 1” and “Over There, Part 2”.

Like Pokémon, head past the jump to catch ’em all.

FRINGE (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) – “Brown Betty” – “FOX Rocks” Programming

While Walter (John Noble) deals with some upsetting news, he tells Olivia’s niece, Ella (guest star Lily Pilblad), a fairy tale that includes musical performances by Olivia (Anna Torv) and Agent Broyles (Lance Reddick).

Thursday, April 29th

FRINGE (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) – “Northwest Passage”

Peter teams up with Sheriff Mathis (guest star Martha Plimpton) on a serial murder investigation with ties to Newton (guest star Sebastian Roch). Meanwhile, Walter copes with the possibility of being sent back to St. Claire’s, and someone from the “other side” pays a visit.

Thursday, May 6

FRINGE (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) – “Over There, Part 1” – Season Finale, Part 1

In part one of the two-part, two-night second season finale, Walter and Olivia travel to the parallel universe, and the anticipated face-off between Walter Bishop and William Bell occurs when special guest star Leonard Nimoy returns.

Thursday, May 13

FRINGE (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) – “Over There, Part 2” – Season Finale, Part 2

Sacrifices will be made and both universes may never be the same again after Walter and Olivia visit the “other side” in Part 2 of the climactic season finale.

Thursday, May 20


Don’t forget, there are 5 episodes remaining in total, including this Thursday’s epic-sounding “The Man From The Other Side“.

    I try to stay as spoiler free as possible but just couldn’t resist sneaking a peek at this page. Fortunately not too much was given away. I always figured that Walternate was dead on the other side, part of the deal the Observers have with Walter. But wouldn’t it be wild for Walternate to take Walters place over here, perhaps in St. Claires, and allow Walter to travel “over there”.

    I think rather the visitor for “Northwest Passage” is Elizabeth from the other side. I think she will be used a pawn to lure Peter over perhaps even under duress. Olivia will have to choose between saving Peter and protecting Walter as Newton will seek to exploit his percieved weakness of Olivia. Maybe there is nothing to this but Broyles did say, “There is only one Walter Bishop” to Olivia in the episode, “Grey Matters”. Was that a clue?

    Also, I didn’t think Olivia would be traveling “over there” until next season to get Peter back. Hopefully we will also find out why Peter is so important. Things are happening fast I can’t wait to see how it all plays out.

    I’m confused by the dates listed here–is there no new episode scheduled for April 29th? If “The Man From The Other Side” is this week (the 22nd), and “Brown Betty” doesn’t air until May 6th, then what will they be showing to fill in the gap? Also, do both parts of “Over There” air on the same night, or are they breaking them up?

    It would make more sense to me to have “Brown Betty” on April 29th, and the second part of “Over There” on May 20th, but I kinda like the idea of 2 hours of FRINGE in one night…

      No, LizW65, you are right. The schedule goes like this:

      April 22: The Man From the Other Side
      April 29: Brown Betty
      May 6: Northwest Passage
      May 13: Over There Part 1
      May 20: Over There Part 2

      I think Roco just made a slight mistake when he copied the information over here — he took the date from below, which is actually for the next description, instead of the date from above… if that makes sense…

    Great info. For some reason I thought there were only 3 episodes left, so I am glad to see “Northwest Passage” in the mix. What a pleasant surprise to see so much Fringe left for the rest of the season.

    And I have never been more excited to be a Fringe fan than now, as we gear up toward the end of this season. The latest string of episodes (since “The Bishop Revival”) – along with the potential of the upcoming ones – have been nothing short of phenomenal.

    Oh man, these are great, I cannot wait. From the looks of it, the last four episodes will give us the much speculated “Peter going rogue after learning the news” storyline. Not a huge shocker there but I am looking forward to it, hopefully the recent credit John Noble gave Josh Jackson in an interview for his performance over that arch will be well deserved.

    I’m not watching the musical episode until I read on here if it was a flop or not. If it’s a flop I’ll wait for the DVD.

    I’m detecting some nods to “Twin Peaks” in that “Northwest Passage” episode. We shall see.

    A confrontation between Walter and Bell, huh? Which Walter? Pity our Walter smashed up that viewing mirror…after what he did, I know I’d want to keep an eye on what my alternate self was doing.

    Interesting title names. Very reminiscent of World War 1/2 marches…Brown Betty…Over There…war is coming, I guess.
