(Spoiler): The new promo for the April 1st episode of Fringe, 2.15 “Peter” is doing the rounds. If the title wasn’t enough of a hint, the promo makes it clear where and when this episode is going, and I must say, it does a nice job at whetting the appetite.
If you want to remain totally spoiler-free (and why wouldn’t you), I would recommend not clicking the blue “click to continue” link below, as the promo does tread that line of giving too much away *shakes fist*. Otherwise, grab your goggles and your best running shoes and head past the jump. I’ll explain why later.
UPDATE: High Def video added:
The voice over interpretation is interesting: “How far would a father go, to CURE his son”. In other words, would you sacrifice the entire world (possibly two worlds) for the life of your child? A nice easy question to start the day with, thanks Fringe!
As for the episode, I would like to (at least) see these overarching elements brought together:
- Walter supposedly reaching back in time to grab Dr. Alfred Gross in a bid to cure Peter (did this happen or was it a cover story?)
- September ‘saving’ Walter and Peter, and how this relates to Peter still ending up dead (they could give this a sinister turn, but we’ll see)
- How Walter got to the alternate universe – his own ‘genius’, or a helping hand?
- If Walter owes September a debt, what are the terms of the debt?
Anyway, if the promo is anything to go by then the look of this episode should be a real treat for the eyes (remember those goggles I asked you to bring?) – JJ. wasn’t kidding about the retro style of the episode.
It’s been great to de-fringe (if such a thing is possible on this blog) but it’s hard not to get excited for the return of the show in just under 4 weeks time. Maybe if we run really fast we can make it come along sooner (hence the running shoes)?
