First, the bad news. After slaying the Lowatus Dragon in an epic battle of endurance last month, our fire-breathing nemesis has risen once more to inflict terror on the Fringeverse. Yes folks, after this Thursday’s episode of Fringe, the Lowatus will be reborn – this time in the guise of the NLCS Baseball. How long will it last you say? It could take up to four weeks to put the beast down, with episode 3.05 possibly airing November 11th. Ouch-y.
In better news, Fox are at least showing ‘encore’ episodes of Fringe on Saturday nights – see the promo here.
In even better news, today’s Fringe Links takes you behind the scenes of Fringe, with pictoral look at some of the props and people from the first three episodes of the season. We also engage in some code-cracking to unlock hidden Fringe content, listen to a quick audio bite from Joshua Jackson, and share a recap from our friends at TV.com.
Fringe Season 3 BTS Photos – “Olivia”, “The Box”, “The Plateau”
Our friends at TV.com recap last week’s “The Plateau” episode:
“The Plateau,” Fringe‘s third episode of Season 3, was the second so far this season that highlighted the alternate universe (producers will be bouncing back and forth between universes with each episode). It was also the first episode of this season to move the alternate universe (let’s call it the Red Universe, after the color scheme of the title sequences that comes with these episodes) into case-of-the-week territory. If there were questions of whether Fringe would go 100 percent mythology this season, they were squashed last night with a very entertaining episode focusing on a creepy guy who would absolutely destroy Bobby Fischer in a game of chess.

Joshua Jackson talks to Fox All Access about the importance of the father/son dynamic on Fringe – short audio clip here. Thanks to Dave for the heads-up.
