Seeing as Peter has an episode named after him, it’s only right that Olivia gets her due. And by jove, could this be another serialized episode? 😉

    Roco first of all: ‘Seeing as Peter has an episode named after him, it’s only right that Olivia gets her due.’ OK I’m not a native speaker of English, so I either don’t get the joke or you meant ‘… gets her too’ – probably it’s the first case…

    Wohoo Sam Weiss is back!
    Is it just me or do the episode titles become weirder and weirder?
    It sound like one of these mixed episode like ‘Night of Desirable Objekt’ and ‘What Lies Bellow’.

      Hi Stefan! :)

      I’m not a native speaker of English myself but the phrase “to get his/her due” is quite common. It means something like “to get what he/she deserves” (in a positive way; native english speakers please correct me if I’m mistaken).

    The plot of this episode sounds amazing, I’m thrilled that Sam is back, and I love the title! Seriously, that title is fascinating, intriguing, clever, and completely brilliant! It really makes me wonder what’s going to happen in this episode. It seems clear that it’s a take off of the game, Clue, which is a game of solving the mystery of who is responsible for the murder, where, and with what weapon. So if the answer is “Olivia. In the Lab. With the Revolver.” it seems to imply that Olivia killed someone in the lab with the revolver. But then the question is, who does she kill?

    I say this all the time, but I seriously can’t wait!

      Great clue – I never played that game.
      Oh, and just to set everything clear when I say the episode titles are getting weirder – that good for me because I like weird. :)

    mlj, you hit it right on the head–“Clue”. Olivia. In the Lab. With a revolver.” I love that game, and regularly beat my family. “Professor Green. In the parlor. With the candlestick.”

    makes me wonder if the outbreak affects someone they took back to Walter’s Lab, and the person unexpectedly came out of a coma, or came “back to life”.

    Of course, you never know w/Fringe. Could be something very different.

      This is my question, too! I think it must be, if you compare the pics of Diane with the promos. Maybe she’s the woman who dies.

    It looks like 2.15 is going to be mythology laced. Is it too much to ask for two back to back?

    Love the title, fantastic! And am very excited to see Sam Weiss back, he’s such an interesting character I really want to know more about him and what he knows.
    So you know how Fringe leaves a clue in every episode for the next one? Well I found the clue for this one in one of the previews of ‘Peter’ on
    In the preview, the observers are leaving a movie theater (having watched Back to the Future starring Eric Stolz???? other side?) and behind them is a poster for “Clue!”
    Another very cool tidbit is that Eric Stolz was originally cast to play Marty McFly in Back to the Future but was replaced by at the last minute by Michael J Fox. So in the alternate universe, he did in fact star in the movie.

    Hey there! I just wanted to point something out to those of you who may not have noticed yet. As “giulio” had mentioned before on the “Jacksonville” observations page (because I’m not sure I would have noticed without reading his post), the name Lloyd B. is scribbled next to the height chart at the Daycare Center, along with Nick Lane (Bad Dreams), Nancy and Susan Lewis (The Road Not Taken), and of course Olive D./Oliva Dunham. Perhaps the “Lloyd Becker” credited in this episode is the same one who was supposedly treated with cortexiphan.
