    Peter’s gone rogue…it’s been a while. I love it! What I find interesting about Newton wanting to find Peter is we’ll likely learn what he wants him for, but the “why” will come from Walter before season end…maybe. Normally, I’d be irritated by that, but I find the idea of S3 having a great deal to do with discovering who and what Peter is truly capable of.

        I just realized I didn’t finsih my thought…I find the idea of the audience discovering what Peter’s capable of really exciting. Unearthing things about his past could end up having as much to do with Nina (as was hinted at again in ‘Peter’) as well as the deeper secrets and knowledge that lies in Walter’s mind. Heck, if we’re fortunate, we may discover more about what Broyles knows, which has always been in question.

    As I mentioned in the previous thread, I question why Broyles would be willing cover up Peter’s disappearance, as I should think he’d be more invested in keeping the team together. Looks like a very exciting ep!

      Okay, well, put this in the category of one of my crazy, random, probably not true theories, but could it be that when we see Peter talking on the phone, saying how he doesn’t want Walter to know where he is, etc., that he’s not necessarily talking to Broyles? We have no way of knowing that he actually called Broyles — it could just be the way they put together the clips from the episode that makes it look that way. And when Olivia asks Broyles if he knows something, that could be referring to many things. We’ve seen in recent episodes that it again appears that Broyles is aware of certain information that he’s keeping from Olivia and team. She could be referring to any of that.

      Like I said, I’m probably wrong here. I just find it surprising that Peter would contact Broyles of all people. And, it still bothers me that he has shut out Olivia without even talking to her. Even though I understand he’s upset, it just doesn’t fit. Maybe it’s just because he doesn’t want Walter to know where he is, and he thinks if he contacts Olivia, she’ll tell Walter where he is. Or he doesn’t want to put her in a situation where she would be lying to Walter. Maybe?

      But, assuming he did contact Broyles and Broyles does agree to keep that to himself, it kind of makes sense simply because, while he would want to keep the team together, Broyles is also the kind of guy who keeps secrets — especially if he thinks it will be for the best in the long run. That said, I agree that he would ultimately want Peter back working with the team, not off on his own.

        “I just find it surprising that Peter would contact Broyles of all people…”

        Yeah, that’s what I find intriguing about that scene–it just doesn’t make sense that someone who wants to go into hiding would call what amounts to his boss, of all people. And who is this mysterious “Kristen” who was apparently killed to get to Peter? Is she someone from his past, or just a random individual whose death he finds suspicious for some reason?

          I think he’s still trying to operate within the law, maybe he knows if his credentials are used in the investigation and if anybody questions it, they will talk to Broyles, so he has to talk to him first. I think he is very angry with Olivia and thats why he didn’t call her. It would make sense when he woke up in the hospital with that look of betrayal on his face.

          Doesn’t Kristin sound like an old girlfriend? remember the guy he beat up and pointed a gun at randomly on the street and said “Leave her alone”–maybe the ‘her’ was Kristin? Maybe when he buys the gun at that shop, they tell him she has gone missing?? How exactly does he just stumble upon a crime scene involving someone he knows?

            No sorry, that girl’s name was Tessa. I remember because I thought the Tessa on the cortexiphan kid list was her (wrong too). This episode looks awesome, and I agree with mlj102 that the promo could be misleading. They do that all the time, edit to suggest one thing and it’s totally out of context. But I guess it’s a good way to excite the audience without giving things away.

              Peter contacting Broyles wouldn’t surprise me at all. Ever since Peter’s “We’re done reacting” speech to Broyles at the beginning of the season, I think we’ve see their relationship develop as the season has continued. (i.e. their friendly banter in Of Human Action and Johari Window) I find it entirely feasible that Peter, coming across something relating to Newton would contact Broyles, as he’s on the outs with Walter and Olivia.

    There is a little snippet in this promo of two hands on what looks like the motel phone from the promo photos, it’s small and I had to rewind to see it, but what’s that all about?? It’s important enough for them to include it…. And where’s Walternate??

    I love how Peter is going to his shady underground contacts to buy a gun. He must know Olivia knew because he’s not calling her.

    So are Newton’s guys going to kidnap him? They’re shooting darts at him kind of like Olivia in that one episode where she was taken. Perhaps take him to the other side?!?!

    I’m so excited for a Peter-centric episode!!!

    Peter being kidnapped by Newton and taken to the other side? Oh the symmetry. Along the lines of what I was thinking, either that or recruiting him in this fragile state (but I think his *heart* might be still tied to this side).

    Good luck with that buddy, Peter won’t go quietly. That is one guy I wouldn’t dare mess with!

    Did anyone else notice the bald (I think?) man standing next to Newton at the very end of the promo?

    Is this our first proper look at the secretary?

    what if peter was secretly, a Cortexiphan kid? that would be super awesome if something just happened during this. i think the secretary might be Walternate because what if he wanted to work with Newton to bring Peter?

      I’ve a very crazy theory….What if in the AU Peter was the source of cortexifan and there aren’t other cortexi-kids like olivia, nick ecc. in our universe? He is a supersoldier like Olivia, but supposed to fight for the alternate world, because the war threat already existed….maybe. But his kidnapping caused the war permanently.

      I’m crazy, am i? XD

        Do you mean in the alt/universe, because we know there’s at least 147 potential Cortexiphan children that Bell and Walter experimented on (if Walter’s drug hazed story contains some elements of truth) on this side. However, I like the theory that Peter is the original source for Cortexiphan in the alt/verse…and having him return to that universe could mean the difference between which universe survives.

          See, I have a hard time believing that the 147 children Peter mentioned in here are referring to the number of Cortexiphan Kids — or, if it is directly referring to them, that Walter’s drugged up, crazy mind used an accurate number. Actually, my theory since Olivia. In the Lab… has been that there are 47 Cortexiphan Kids. Broyles told Nina that there were nearly a dozen unaccounted for kids from the trials in Jacksonville, and 30 more from the ones in Wooster. If Olivia’s Height Chart list includes all the names of the children from Jacksonville, there are a total of 16 from that location. About 30 more would bring us up to about 47. I remember thinking it would be just like the writers of the show to have there be 47 total Cortexiphan Kids. Of course, when Broyles said there were 30 more children from the Wooster trials, he could have meant there were 30 unaccounted children from there, but was implying that they have actually managed to locate some of them already. That would be interesting, though I find it hard to believe they would have been able to locate 100 Cortexiphan Kids already…

          As for Peter being a potential Cortexiphan Kid, I’ve always thought that was a clear possibility. He’s the right age, he’s Walter’s son, and he fits the profile (blacks and greys and all that). It must have been on another topic, because I can’t find it in these comments, but someone pointed out that if there were 147 Cortexiphan Kids (or, in my theory, only 47), that would make an odd number, which doesn’t fit with Walter and Bell’s process of putting the kids in pairs. Now, if there were 16 kids in Jacksonville, that makes 8 pairs. And if there were 30 in Wooster, that would be 15 pairs and a total of 46 Cortexiphan Kids. And number 47 would be accounted for if Peter was a Cortexiphan Kid as well. He would have been the lone one, not really a part of either of the 2 official trials. Of course, that would have to mean that: Walternate had done Cortexiphan Trials over there as well, and experimented on Peternate, making the Peter we know a Cortexiphan Kid, or Walter gave Peternate the Cortexiphan after bringing him over (which is a couple of years after the trials supposedly ended), or original Peter was a Cortexiphan Kid, but Peternate isn’t. Could the Cortexiphan be what caused both Peters to get sick? Of course, it doesn’t make sense why Peter would develop some fatal illness from Cortexiphan while none of the other kids seemed to get sick from it. But it would be an interesting set of circumstances if that is what happened…

            WOW. That’s a really good theory.

            This, from Fringepedia:
            “Peter tracks the Pattern of stolen dreams with 147 pins. The identical number of people (147) were aboard the aircaft in Pilot and in The Transformation.”

            To be honest, I like the idea that there’s only 47 Cortexiphan children, because 147 seems unmanagable within the confines of the story. That and it still leaves the possibility that Peter is that lone child who was treated, perhaps by Walternate, or by Walter after he kidnapped him. The latter makes more sense seeing Peter can’t recall his childhood, although he does recall that Walter did hook him up to car batteries and shocked him for research. Hee! That scene never fails to tickle me, although I know it shouldn’t. ;-)

    I just remembered all those trees from Olivia’s dreamworld in “Jacksonville.” AND the yellow pine tree from “Inner Child!”

    What do you see? Olivia “I’m in a forest…really tall trees.”
    So we have pine tree symbol in Inner Child, Pine tree on Nick Lane’s arm in Bad Dreams, pine tree symbol practically yelling at us in Man From the Other Side, and now looks as though a showdown b/w Peter and Newton will take place in a forest.
    Don’t know if this connection was intended in Inner Child, but it was close in episode order to Bad Dreams and Nick’s tattoo.
    Awesome.

      I was thinking the same thing! Wowww!! Very interesting connection! And if you pay attention to the promo, it seems that Newton is shooting Peter (or a tree next to peter) with a kind of YELLOW syringe. So we have both the forest and the yellow again! :D
