    Her powers scene was amazing.

    Just a shame that Peter won’t accept that this is his Liv.

    It was great how she gave Jones more than what he bargained for :)
    Go Dunhamnator!

    Wondering how Anna prepares for an episode like this. Awesome is an understatement!

      Yeah did you see Jones face when she started going all ‘lightning starter’ on him. That was awesome and priceless.

    Gotta give it to September. Yes, Olive was very good, and the Amazing Olivia Lightbox Show was one for the ages. Peter was also very good, and you could see his hating to turn his back on Olivia (Joshua Jackson once said in an interview that Peter would always save Olivia, whether Olivia or Fauxlivia, but I would also guess any version).

    But September gave the episode its epicenter. No September, no mind meld, and P/O proceed, but maybe not for the best. But because of September and the mind-meld, explaining the birth that was not supposed to happen, to the wrong Olivia Dunham, and why he saved Peter…that added lots to the mythology.

    I am not sure September is gone forever.

    “Please, stop..I just can’t right now….I’m, I’m tired and I just need rest….” oh I believe you Olive!

    She had the roughest couple of days: headaches+flashes of her prior time+abducted+broken hart…Did she even got to pee before they abducted her?

    Plus I re-watched it and Dunham is so tough and Anna was brighter than the lights she blasted…wonderful girl!

    no offense fellow FRINGE fans, but if September doesn’t win this poll by a significant margin I think I will have to abandon faith in all of you! what is wrong with your voting fingers people!?

        He was great, but I liked him more when he wasn’t so chatty 😉

        I don’t think we’ve seen the end of him…

            oooh clever! I like what both of you say; interesting thought [and if I’m honest I did have to force/convince myself to overlook his strange-pentameter-less chatty-ness, I thought that it took away from the brilliantly woven and mysterious on screen history of the character which was due in large part to his speech patterns, but I’m thinkin if he used his usual pentameter, he would have run out of time within the context of the show (the they would have come, the they who were coming!) and taken up too much time in terms of the shows running time, stretching out the scene forever].

    I think this had to be the closest episode Josh and Anna have ever had in terms of Fringie of the Week. They were both amazing in terms of their heartbreak in this episode but adding in the realizing her powers storyline I had to give the edge to Olivia.

    This thing is going to become completely pointless if people always just vote for peter regardless of the context.

      I’m sure some people do that, just like I’m sure some people vote for Olivia regardless of the context.

      I voted for Peter (for full disclosure my favorite character is Walter) because of one reason – the scene where he found out he had a son was probably the best acting I’ve seen from JJ throughout the whole series.

      I voted for Olivia. Poor girl; she is forced to torture her adoptive mother (even though it wasn’t her), she’s remembering things that may not have happened to her, and her boyfriend breaks up with her after she escapes.

    Oh man…. Olivia and September were both SO GREAT it’s so hard to choose. Cerevis finally got to show his major acting chops, but Torv just blew me away. Also, her “I’m turning off the lights.” was so cold, so determined, so powerful.

    I went with September as he has intervened again. I believe it was Walternate who shot September as he stepped in front of the bullet that would have killed Olivia. Peter and Olivia of the future can have a child. An ultrasound photo will go on their refrigerator to accompany the neighbor’s artwork.

        sure is! [maybe it’s a super child that becomes the first observer! or can bend and shape the multiverse as he/she likes with peter’s dna/machine connectedness, whatever it means, and olivia’s cortexipowers! (and fly, why not) how cool would that be?! : dun dun dah, dah dah dah dah super peter and olivia baby!]

    This was a hard choice for me, but I went with Peter. In this episode and last, his scenes were remarkably evoking. I’ve always enjoyed how Josh plays him, but he’s been so on par in particular lately, that I could swear I could feel what he was feeling. Doesn’t happen to me often, and I very much appreciate it when it does. That being said, I was sold on Anna from the Pilot. That girl’s got chops. She can do anything. I’m always right there empathizing with her.

    Who knows, maybe it’s because the romantic characterization has been stunning between PandO so far this season, that even the actor’s believed it. Way to go Jackson. I knew you had it in you to be okay with the love stuff….again. lol.

    I do usually have a different favorite per episode. Walter is my most consistent though, I have to admit. He was by far my pick in WTW. That diner scene couldn’t have been acted any better. Noble’s kills it…every time, every episode. Nuff said.

      I also voted for peter, and that says something considering september had really great stuff in this episode and i love michael cerveris, i agree with what someone said above about the acting in the henry reveal.

      Blair Brown/Nina was great also, meana :p (ROCO i think you should rename NinRed, meana)

      Lastly, anna torv was fantastic in this episode like she has been throughout the series, however i just cannot reconcile with the torture scene. Whatever people say about her being emotionally disconnected (although i agree that is what they were going for) i just thought it was an awful scene, no matter what the intent, it just felt like bad delivery and bad acting generally by anna torv, i hated that scene, and it ranks as one of my worst in the series as a whole. But every other scene apart from that she was fantastic and that is the ONLY reason i didnt vote for her, if not for that scene i would have.

      Finally, how lincoln even got 1 vote in this poll is beyond me the character is beyond ****! hes MEGA ****!

    Peter again? Really? Don’t get me wrong. I like the character, and he did a fantastic job in this episode, but I don’t consider the character, his role, and his performance in this episode to be the highlight. And yes, I know everyone has different opinions, and that’s fine. I just have to express my surprise to see him so high up in the votes yet another week in a row. In some ways I think voters are simply making up for lost time from the early episodes this season where they couldn’t vote for him since he didn’t exist (and for the record, that last sentence is meant to be humorous, so no need for anyone to get defensive or upset at me :) ).

    But really, I agree that this episode was extremely close for a lot of characters. I would say that September, Olivia, Peter, Nina, and Jones all contributed in amazing ways throughout this episode and it’s hard to rank them. I suppose it sort of depends on what you were looking for. Personally, I would order them with Olivia at the top, followed closely by September, then Peter, Jones, and alternate Nina. It was really hard for me to decide between Olivia and September, but in the end I had to give it to Olivia for the way she kept control of the situation from the instant she was captured. She was not fooled by the Nina deception. No matter how obvious viewers might claim it was, it couldn’t have been obvious for the character, yet she still saw through Nina’s act and she did what she needed to do to manipulate the situation in her favor and find a way to escape. Then there was a huge step forward for the character as she took control of her powers. Then Peter broke her heart. Yeah, she had quite an episode.

    Olivia.. for major tragic points. The end of that episode was probably one of the saddest things I ever seens on the show. Olivia never gets a break, no matter what timeline/universe..
