What’s life without Peter? That’s the question the cast of Fringe will have to consider as production on Season 4 edges closer.
John Noble has offered his thoughts on what happens when life peters out, and the external threats which could unite two warring factions.
John Noble: “See, the thing that rescued Walter, once they pulled him out, the thing that humanized him, was Peter. Finding this relationship with his son, that brought Walter back into the human race. Now if he doesn’t have that, if he doesn’t have any love in his life, what’s going to happen? He’s been in an asylum without love in his life all this time, if he’s working without love in his life… I hope they give him Gean at least – Gean the cow! No, I am seriously thinking about that, because I know for a while I’m going to have to work on that loveless Walter. And I’m stewing around in my head already. [Laughs.]”
Noble on the potential of a third universe entering the sandbox:
“The thing that will save the two universes now is an external threat. That’s what brings people together.” I’ve heard this from fans and I think it’s very clever. So if these two universes have to meet, what’s gonna make them do it? Suddenly, if there’s an external threat… I’ve got my fingers crossed that that’ll happen.”
