Welcome to Fringie of the Week – the weekly poll where Fringe fans get to vote for their favourite character performance from the latest episode.
Night of Desirable Objects may not have been the most overarching of episodes, but a lot of characters featured so there’s plenty of Fringies to choose from.
Peter Bishop currently heads this season’s table after his victory last week, but who will get the fans vote this week? Feel free to cast your vote and check back on Thursday when this post will be updated with the winner.
Welcome to theFBreview of Fringeseason 2 episode 2 –Night of Desirable Objects. In this review I present my honest opinions on the goodandthe bad aspects of this installment. I also take a look at the resolved mysteries and open questions relating to this episode, before sharing my remaining thoughts on the aspects which may have been overlooked.
So last week was all about Peter taking charge. He popped his collar and we duly tipped our hats. But we kinda missed our Olivia, all stuck in a bed and barely able to pick up her gun. I knew that inter-dimensional travel was dangerous, but I didn’t expect her to be such a wreck! With that in mind, I’ve decided to dedicate my ‘raw and immediate’ thoughts from the second episode of the new season of Fringe to agent Dunham.
So without further ado, here are the 6 Olivia-related Things I Learned From Night of Desirable Objects.
1.) Olivia is on another level
Olivia returned from the parallel Universe with her powers of observation heightened – her super hearing already helping to crack cases and solve crimes (if only she could hear Evil Charlie’s thoughts, huh). Coincidence? Not a chance – her entire journey (barring the odd detour) is part of the plan, she’s on the path laid out for her. The super hearing and impending headaches are par for the course – side-effects from the clinical trials which kept those childhood abilities locked away until the time was right. The fruit of Bell’s labor now coming home to harvest.
Yes, Olivia’s had it rough, but I sense that the hardest part is yet to come! Is she strong enough to mentally cope? Put it this way, she’s gonna need her family (and obviously I DON’T mean Rachel ).
