If Blair Brown‘s charm failed to convince you that the season 2 Fringe finale was gonna be MAXI-Huge, perhaps you’ll listen to Jasika Nicole? TV Addict spoke to JN, who teases the remaining episodes of the season, including the 2-part season climax. It really does seem as though the finale could be fairly massive.
Head past the jump to see what Jasika has to say. (contains spoilers for upcoming episodes).
“After coming to grips that this other universe exists, Astrid’s immediate reaction was, I need to be there for him, for Walter, because she knows what a downfall this is going to have for his relationship with both Peter and Olivia,” explains Nicole with regards to what fans can expect from the aftermath. “She knows that Walter’s been kind of abandoned often throughout his live because of the things he’s done, he’s hurt people and now he’s completely immersed himself in people’s lives and she just wants to be there with him.”
After-all, if there is one person who might possibly be able to understand the difficult choices one must make in the name of science, it’s Astrid. Whose loyalty to Walter has become one of her defining and most endearing qualities. A quality which will not surprisingly be put to good use as the season reaches a conclusion.
“You actually get to see it later, in an episode that hasn’t aired of course, where it’s just Astrid and Walter kind of hanging out in the lab because Peter doesn’t want to have anything to do with him, he’s really hurt. So she’s just trying to help keep him in a good place because who knows what will happen.” says the actress facetiously. Because let’s face it, if there is one person who knows exactly what will happen… it’s the woman who just recently had the pleasure of reading the jaw-dropping season finale script that has Astrid meeting what we’re poorly dubbing “Alterstrid!”
