    Love Liv (no, really, you have no idea), but had to go for Peter this time. They just nailed his character, it was well done on all sides, by the writers and Josh. Well done!

    Well-loved. Like: Thumb up 13

      same here, Olivia is always my fav but Peter was really good in this episode. Actually I would have gone with the whole trio because I was so happy to have them back after 4 episodes of them in the background.

    I Voted for Peter, but I gotta say the captive Observer had me creeping out in a good way. His performance was very good.

    In case anyone else like me thought he was friggin familiar as hell.

    I figured out the actor’s name as well in case anyone was wondering. His name is John Prosky, he’s been in several tv shows, as he is a character actor. He is most commonly remembered as the Republican Congressman David Finch on True Blood. The one that was having a homosexual affair with Lafayette, and against Vampire rights.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 9

    Really tough choice. Both Peter and Liv were really great but for completely different reasons. This was probably one of the best episodes of Fringe in a long, long time. Maybe of the entire series.
