Here’s the promo for Friday’s second part of the Fringe Season 4 finale.

Comments

    Now that Olivia can control other bodies at will, there is no excuse for her not to manipulate William Bell like a marionette. It should be a piece of cake for her.

      True, but she may only be able to do that with Peter, because of the personal connection that they have!

        She could also do it with those two policemen, not only Peter. She didn’t have any side effects, either. In theory, she can manipulate anyone at will at any given time without breaking a sweat.

    * “If we are capable of being gods, then it is our destiny to do so.” The core of Bell’s God-complex.

    * Good to see you, September. Does this mean Bell shot you?

    * The hole in the floor–did the beacon pay a visit?

    * Bell ringing the bell is a coda back to “Momentum Deferred”

    * What’s behind Walter’s self-satisfied smile?

    * Walter with a gun. Seems like he is the the means to Bell’s end, from the promo, anyway. Unless Walter really shoots September.

    * Have we seen Peter’s last loving caress until Season 5?

    Only six days to the last Fringe Friday of the season.

    I don’t care WHAT happens at this point in the story. Now that Leonard Nimoy has made his triumphant return to reprise his role as the deviously cagey William Bell Fringe is whole again and I am now prepared to shower this program with unconditional love, come what may. Thank you Mr. Nimoy for endearing yourself to a whole new generation of sci-fi fans with your singular talent.

    Walter doesn’t look like he’s smiling. He looks sad that he may have to shoot his friend.

    Is that Peter and Olivia falling through the air? What if they booth sacrafice themselves. I agree that it hasn’t been shown that Olivia can access her abilities without Peter. It will be interesting to see.

    Can’t wait . . .

  7. TW says

    IIRC, when Bell rings his “bell”, it’s to summon forth some soul from his “soul magnet” tech.

    So my question would then be, is there a soul inside someone we don’t know about ? Is there a soul inside of Olivia he’s going to bring forth ?

      Or I suppose that his ringing of his bell set in motion something else, the “chain reaction” maybe … he’s alluding to ?

        I wonder, did Olivia cross over and meet Bell in this timeline, from Momentum Deferred? If so, then she still has a soul magnet in her!

      The producers confirmed on Twitter that Bell is only interested in Olivia for her cortexiphan, not soul magnets.

        He needs Olivia for her cortexiphan to help in his lymphoma treatment maybe.
        If Bell could contol the cell growth and multiplication of lymphoma, then maybe he can control his death, and finish playing the very long game of chess. There is method to his madness.

    First off, I don’t know if you guys remember (because I never hear anyone ever mention it, and I’ve been reading the comments on here religiously since the conception of FringeBloggers), but in the season 3 finale, Olive was able to stop the FBI evidence box from falling to the floor; and Walter gave her a look and she said something like “I’m able to control it now”… Well, I’ve always been wondering what happened to that untapped power that we saw in 2026…

    I honestly think that this episode will definitely be a cliffhanger, more so than last year’s. But unfortunately, I don’t think that I have the emotional fortitude to withstand it. By the way, I’m quite sure that the finale will not leave us with an ending that WOULD’VE been satisfying had Fringe not been picked up for season 5. I know that Wyman & Co. said that we would be satisfied with the conclusion of season 4 if it were to be the last season… but I think that’s bullsh!T; just as they said earlier in the week that William Spock BellMoy wouldn’t be featuring, but there he was.

    All I have to say is that after watching ALEX (A.K.A. Astrid) get popped from behind, I’m not so sure if I want to see the finale until at least the end of August… who am I kidding? Just about 155 hours til the finale, and I’ll be all over it!

    p.s….. did anyone else find it FunLarious when Walter told Astrid (or just after calling her Alex) “PEACE OUT” and then chucked her the duecies?????

        I’m sure it was unscripted… I’m sure that Noble really feels (and truly gets into) his character as our Walter… I’m sure the Scientific lines in every episode are from Wyman & folks, but I’m sure for the rest, they just say “O.k. John, where you see dot dot dot, just do your thing”.

    I’m just wondering how this all leads into “Letters of Transit”.

    Bell is back, and has everyone pissed at him, like in LoT, but Astrid was alive in that episode, and Olivia and Peter are supposed to have a kid before William does something awful to Olivia…

      Well, the events of the season three finale didn’t lead into 2026 – in fact they were designed specifically to avoid the world of 2026. Perhaps what we will be seeing is the way they manage, without knowing they are doing so, to avoid what we saw in 2036. In a series with multiple worlds and multiple timelines, there will be multiple futures – we have seen two of them, one already avoided.

      Also, LoT was the 19th episode… as we know the 19th episodes (i.e. brown betts, LSD, etc.) usually have nothing to do with the OVERALL story arch; but at the same time, it does. Wow, that was confusing… however, these episodes are usually there to show us how creative the showrunners are and give us minimal insight on where the show is going via easter eggs and certain forms of symbolism. However, I don’t think that we will be seeing too much of 2036 in the near future. Although we should in about 24 years time.lol

    There’s certainly a lot of information to process from this promo, but the part that stands out most to me is Jessica when she says, “This was a future he didn’t foresee.” Why?

    1. Who foresees the future? The Observer. And in his warning to Olivia he claimed to have “looked at all possible futures” and in every one, Olivia had to die. I have long speculated that, like in August when the others wouldn’t accept Christine could be special until August made her that way, somehow they would find a way to a future that September hadn’t seen, in which Olivia could live. So is Jessica suggesting that that’s what happened — that this is a future the Observer hadn’t foreseen?

    2. If that’s the case, how does Jessica know about the Observers? Is she more involved in this than we were lead to believe? It seems to suggest, as others have speculated, that her involvement in Part 1 was no coincidence, but that it had been planned that way. Planned by Bell? A different villain altogether?

    3. Who is she talking to? At first, I figured she was talking to Olivia; that there was some lingering effect of the nanites (I actually considered that perhaps Bell would be able to somehow use the survivors from the nanite incident to trigger merging the two universes) that caused her to contact Olivia again and become involved in the events of the next episode. But upon watching it again (several times) it doesn’t seem to fit. The way she says it sounds too matter of fact, almost like she’s reporting in to someone about an unexpected development. Perhaps she’s talking to Bell. Or another observer, like December, or a new one entirely?

    At any rate, I’m interested to see this in context. As of right now, I’m highly suspicious of Jessica and her involvement in all this. And I’m hopeful that what she’s suggesting with that comment is that Olivia doesn’t necessarily have to die. Of course if that’s the case, it would have to be some big twist or extenuating circumstance that created a future September hadn’t foreseen.

    • shidey17 says

      Taking the events of August into account, I think you’re onto something with #1. Christine was only allowed to live because she became important when she caused the death of one of the Observers. Perhaps something similar will happen with Olivia. We know September gets shot, so if he dies, maybe Olivia will get to live because she is important enough to affect the Observers? Or simply because her powers allow her to do things she shouldn’t be able to do?

      Unless it’s Walter who is in danger. Peter would definitely sound alarmed if Walter was in danger.
      Remember, this episode could have served as the series final (per Joel and Jeff), so I don’t think Olivia will die here. I don’t know . . . it’s going to be a long 5 days. :(

        I believe this ep would have been a SERIES FINAL only without a renewal. Since we now have a season 5 the alternate ep will be shown which is only a SEASON FINAL and a lead-in to season 5. BTW I read that season 5 is a FULL season. Fox will air the first 13 eps and the broadcaster of the remaining eps is still TBD. Hope so!!

          JD, I don’t think so. The official press release and the producers have confirmed that season 5 will be made up of 13 episodes . . . :(

          In terms of the final season episode: I believe it will still be the one that ‘could have’ worked as the series final. The producers said that they did not shoot an alternate ending; not that they didn’t really shoot another ending in the event that they got picked up for a 5th and final season. We’ll just have to wait and see. :)

    You know how misleading these promo’s are, they almost never match what really is going to happen during the show. I think Peter would only yell “NO” like that for Olivia or Walter, I am praying that neither gets shot or any other injury. The jump, maybe P/O are jumping off the boat into the water to escape or something. If that is the case, hopefully the boat is not too far from shore! This is maddening, waiting to see how this season is going to end.

      In a cast interview Jasika Nicole says something about there being helicopters in the season finale and then it cuts to a clip of Olivia with a headset on. That promo clip looks like 2 people falling from a significant height. I’m going with Peter and Olivia jumping out of a helicopter maybe to get to Bell’s Ark where Walter (and maybe Astrid) are being held.

    What the hell? Peter’s scream could only mean that someone really important was shot. And since it was Walter who took the shot, it may very well be Olivia who got shot. But it does seem a bit weird that Walter would just shoot her like that. That’s like Walternate in the season 3 finale. Or maybe Walter has a plan. Like Olivia can heal herself or whatnot. Maybe this is what ‘dying’ means, like losing whatever things Bell did to her. I’m excited! Belly as the true villain is he logical choice.

      But it is a total reversal of character, and unless it is established this is a different Bell from the one we have already met, that would be breaking one of the main principles of writing fiction: consistency of characterisation. I don’t think the writers will be able to resist the temptation of achieving delicious symmetry by ending season 4 as they ended season 3, with one version of Walter shooting a version of Olivia.

    Here’s a crazy theory. What if Bell takes over Olivia’s body and that’s why, possibly, Walter shoots Olivia. Question: Do we know for certain that Walter is pointing his gun at Olivia? It looks like he and Peter are pointing their guns at Bell.

    Interesting and exciting stuff ahead.

    I’ve been reading comments for a while, but this is my first time posting. I have two main thoughts.
    1. Am I the only one who thinks Peter is actually pointing the gun at September. I swear its a bald head, but kinda hard to tell for sure since its kinda blurry.
    2. I have never believed that 4×19 was the absolute future set in stone. I never though Olivia was dead in that episode either, I figured Bell trapped her somewhere, possibly even in Amber. So my point is Astrid could very well die, though I hope not. Olivia doesn’t have to be pregnant or even become pregnant soon. Etta doesn’t have to exist. The 2026 future was supposedly avoided so the 2036 future could be avoided as well. The episode is a doorway into season 5. I don’t think we can make any assumptions about who may or may not die based on 4×19.

      If you look at Letters of Transit when they got Astrid out of the amber, Etta gave Astrid the shot and said . . .”Walter, where is . . . .” and she was interrupted by Simon. I think she was going to ask Walter the whereabouts of her mother? My take on that question she started to ask, was an indication to me that Etta knows her mother is not dead and she should have been in that amber with Peter, Walter and Astrid.

      Like: Thumb up 2

      • Chris says

        That is what I got out of that scene as well, that Etta was expecting her mother Olivia to come out of the amber. But my point is just because certain people are alive (Astrid) or possibly not (Olivia) in Letters of Transit, that doesn’t mean that is exactly the future we will see in season 5. I really don’t think the writers will kill Astrid, but there is that possibility. They did kill Charlie after all. Season 5 could deal with an observer invasion but not in those exact circumstances in that exact time line. I can’t believe they would really telegraph so much of the future plot so clearly in 4×19. The showrunners like to throw in twists you don’t see coming, but you never know.

        I just went back to look at this scene, and it looks to me like the William Bell trapped in amber is the William Bell of old. He doesn’t have his new digs and funky haircut. So this is either a continuity error (and very well could be) or this is a totally different future from what we see unfolding in Brave New World.

    I wonder what Bellie’s reaction to Peter is. I mean, he most know Peter exists, because DRJ used him to activate Olivia. So what does William Bell think of all that, his lab partner’s dead son suddenly coming back from existence?
