    I am finally able to get all my thoughts out about this episode. It was undoubtedly the best of the season and included some great character moments like the peter/walter scene (the like has been so missed this season), the peter/DRJ scene and the walter/elizabeth scenes, brilliant acting. The storyline was good for the most part, with a few minor flaws and one MAJOR contrivance which i will go onto later.

    As the season goes on i am liking this version of altlivia more and more, she is so much better than in season 3 and the writers have taken the oppourtunity to rebuild her character with both hands. In what i believe was joshua jackson and jasika nicoles first scene in season 4 together, there was a great character moment, and i greatly enjoy how nicole plays her astrids.

    One of the minor plot flaws i found was the long intense sexstares between DRJ and altbroyles that screamed (to me atleast) “WE ARE IN COLLUSION!”.

    Moving onto my major nitpick for this episode and ive gone into detail on seriable, but i really feel strongly about ourlincolns inclusion on the all important universe deciding table between ouruniverse and the altuniverse. His inclusion was nothing less than ridiculous. What has he done to earn the othersides trust? against their wishes cross over and however inadvertantly partly caused the death of two fringe agents, wrongly accused walternate of sending over the shapeshifters and then tells the altverse people how to do their jobs. So of course they reward him by letting him have a seat on the table!
    Next: what has he done to earn such high regard on ourside!: been a junior agent for what must have been at most a few months to olivia, not done anything remotely special, took part in a huge act of insubordination with olivia, and tracked down the super secret fringe agency with a license plate!

    I actually think they included him there so the contrast between opposing alternates would look prettier, his high screentime is awful, astrid would have been better. RANT OVER.

    9/10 episode though. lol 😛

    I only just noticed it was written by Monika (and Allison) who is definitely one of my favourite writers (of any show)! PROBABLY MY FAV EPISODE SINCE SEASON 1 ENDED!
