    Could the name change from “End Game” suggest a fifth season renewal? (Fingers crossed.)

    Well-loved. Like: Thumb up 23

    They changed the name of the finale? Me being the Fringie I am, I wrote the names of the episodes on my calendar…in pen… great :( But, could this be a sign that season 5 is a go? A Brave New World seems to me that it’s saying the show has overcome a seemingly impossible task and entering a brave new world: Season 5! Seriously though, why change the title of the finale from a very conclusive title a very continuous title?

    And wasn’t this case the plot for The Road Not Taken in season 1?

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 8

      “The Endgame is out the door…”

      That wording is what I would call sufficiently vague. But it seems to be saying that the idea of the end of this season being the end (or beginning of the end) of the show is no longer the case.

      Was DRJ behind the people bursting into flames in that episode? I can’t remember. If so, that episode might hold some clues into this one like how Nothing As It Seems did!

        they were cortexiphan subjects and jones tried to have them activated. (which actually opens a big plot hole since olivia flashes over to the other side and uses clues from the same case over there to assist the case over here even though there were no cortexiphan trials over there…)

          I always thought that she was traveling not to the other side, but somewhere/time else. Perhaps to the yellow verse?

            I also think she didn’t flash over to the other side exactly…I think she just saw another version of that case, “the road not taken” so that she could solve it…I don’t know how to explain it better…

                It’s not really a plot hole though. They explained in that episode that there’s an infinite number of universes, and this was just one of them.

                  but the producers have also said that they weren’t doing a third universe.
                  you can split hairs all you want, guys, but the fact of the matter is that it wasn’t explained.

                    I agree with you. I have always wondered what actually happened because a simple slip to the AU did not seem to fit what was happening at all.

                      Yeah whenever i rewatch that episode i always think its a bit weird cause its now very clear they hadnt work out all the details for the AU so the things dont look right etc. Yeah they had a lot of stuff in season 1 that turned into plot holes later on in the series

                      I read an interview somewhere that that was Akiva Goldsman’s early view of the AU, but it got taken in a different direction later on. So yeah, there is a bit of discontinuity there.

                      I feel it’s something that can be overlooked now, considering that there’s almost zero continuity on this show, and considering we’ve been in two universes, two timelines, the past, and the present, it’s pretty amazing that they’ve kept everything basically in order! So I forgive them :)

      In many ways, season 4 looks a lot like season 1.
      Especialy the cases;
      Pilot/Neither Here Nor There
      Ability/Subject 9
      The Transformation/Nothing As It Seems
      In Which We Meet Mr. Jones/Back To Where You’ve Never Been
      Bound/The End Of All Things

    Walter’s painful past? Maybe spontaneous combustion caused the lab fire that killed the girl and made him go to the asylum..

    I’m liking this title much more than “End Game”, but that was also the title to the fourth season finale of Heroes. Hope that isn’t a harbinger of doom. So Miss Mader has a name now: Jessica Holt. Wonder where that came from. “Spontaneous combustion”? Sounds a lot like The Road Not Taken; probably ties into the Cortexiphan kids again.

    Who knows, maybe this might finally explore what the heck happened to his lab assistant

    The people exploding and such in The Road Not Taken were from DRJ lackeys attempting to activate Cortexikids. Remember our man Harris ? lol.

    If someone here has watched Heroes, he/she should know that the last chapter of Heroes, which has never come to pass, was called “Brave New World”….

    Bad feeling.

        And that’s what has been keeping us alive. If Heroes had as much public support on Twitter, Facebook, etc; as we do, it might’ve survived.

    It’s a very common title; I think Heroes, Grey’s Anatomy and Vampire Diaries all have an episode ”Brave New World”.

    Ok guys, I know this is unrealated, but still.
    You know, how I was telling you about my Fringe presentation?
    It was quite successful, I gained around four or five new vievers (in a group of 10 people).
    And then, I realized, that I should do something like that, and publish it on the internet. I’m not talking about power point presentation, of course, but about an interesting project. I tryed a lot of things, from poetry to painting, but since I’m not much of an artist, and my english is not very good (however, I did wrote a short song), I don’t know what to do. So, since you were so helpful with my presentation, I was hoping you might have some ideas.

      Congrats on the presentation. It sounds really great. Maybe splice together a video presentation like the past, present future ones, interspersed with some written or audio dialogue for further explanation. Kudos, by the way, for converting some viewers.

        I’m afraid that’s not possible. My computer kind of crashed, and that presentation was deleted.
        off topic;
        It’s terrible, every computer I touch collapses, crashes or something like that!
        In 2012 computers (that I was using);
        10 times crashed
        20 times froze
        7 times the mouse stopped working
        7 times keyboard stopped working
        4 times screen turned upside down
        13 times all computer files were delited
        30 times internet stopped working
        18 times screen turned black
        28 times USB wasn’t working (different computers, different USBs)
        21 times SD card wasn’t working

        also
        15 times camera wasn’t working (diferent cameras)
        20 times phone wasn’t working
        40 times hendheld froze
        16 times charger (phone or computer) wasn’t working
        9 times TV went out
        38 times headphones weren’t working

        And stuff like this always happens to ME! This happened to diferent computers, and this NEVER happens to anyone else. It just goes off, and than later on again. I don’t live in some third world country, all electronic was fully operational (before I entered the room)

        OMG, I have no idea, why I am bothering you with this, but it is kind of a fringe
        thing!
