    “Peter reveals a family secret to Olivia” – another one? Man, this family this family has more skeletons in the closet then could fit in there. I hope it’s something about Elizabeth…
    Anyway, Newton is back, yeah!

    From the promos it looks like Olivia is going to tell Peter in the next episode “Olivia. In the Lab. With the Revolver.” At least that’s what Fox is hinting at.

    I’m not to sure that Peter will find out about himself until a later episode. When Peter does finds out though, I can see it prompting a big fiasco. It will be the final crack that can ultimately shatter the relationship Walter and Peter have had to strain to rebuild since season 1. I suspect that, knowing Peter, he might even take off. As for the “family secret”? Maybe Peter will reveal the reasons for the bad blood between him and his father in the past?

      John Noble said that Peter will find out very soon in an episode initially titled “coming home” but it was probably changed in “the man from the other side”. John also said that after peter’s discovery, we’ll see him [peter] away from the fringe division for a couple of episodes (and Noble praises joshua jackson for his amazing acting). All this BEFORE the later episode ;)

        Really? Well I’m excited then! Still, I don’t mean later as in like 5 or 6 episodes, but I am wondering if the reveal of Peters identity will come before or after the “Overture” episode, which would be episode “2.19”. I can’t see that kind of drama being interrupted so the cast can break out into song, as interested as I am to see it.

          I understand what you mean when you say you can’t see them throwing the musical episode in after Peter finds out the truth — I agree that it could be rather odd to have the huge reveal and the fall out from Peter knowing the truth, then interrupt that with a seemingly unrelated musical episode. But I expect Peter will find out in the episode before the musical (which would be this one). For one, it would be a way to dissolve the tension — you know, having the reveal will be very dramatic, very serious, and very depressing. Throwing the musical episode in there will help ease the tone of things a bit. Also, the way the musical episode has been described, it sounds like it’s Walter’s way of coping after Peter finds out. If you think about it, it’s really typical Walter — Peter learns the truth, gets mad and leaves — what’s Walter going to do? He’s going to be devastated, and telling this fun, humorous story to Ella could help him deal with his grief.

            Yeah, I thought about that too. Good point though. Now that the episode description for “Brown Betty” is out and it mentions “While Walter deals with some upsetting news…”, the first thing I thought of was “oh, did he find out?” I mean, it could mean a lot of different “Fringe” related things, but since Newton is in this episode, and I’ve had a feeling that the truth will come out due to him, then maybe Peter actually does find out in this one. Hmmmm….

    Anyone have any ideas why it says the teenagers “turn up “dead”” — with ‘dead’ being in quotation marks? To me, it seems to suggest that, while they appear to be dead, they really aren’t dead. That really caught my attention and it sounds very intriguing!

    This episode, like all the other recent episodes, sounds absolutely amazing! The idea of a shape-shifting embryo is incredibly fascinating and I can’t wait to learn more about the shape-shifters and Newton. And don’t even get me started on the fact that Peter is going to reveal a family secret to Olivia. There are so many possibilities regarding what that secret could be, and I’m wouldn’t be surprised if it’s going to be something crucial to the show. I wonder if it will be the kind of secret that, once we know what it is, it will completely change the other things we know. I also find it significant because, while Peter has developed a very close relationship with Olivia, he still remains very private and has kept personal details — specifically things involving his family — very secret. So it’s a big step forward for Peter that he decides to confide in Olivia and open up to her about this secret. Perhaps the fact that Peter is able to share a secret with her will prompt Olivia to decide to share her secret with him.

      Very interesting and plausible theory. Good points! I agree with what you said about Peter confiding in Olivia. If he shares something personal to him and expresses that their relationship has grown and he therefor trusts her, I can see Olive racked with guilt. Although, the thing that I’m still not sure about is whether Walter or Olivia will tell Peter the truth. Perhaps It will be neither of them. Maybe he’ll find out himself, or find out from someone else, possibly Newton? What do you guys think?

        I’m not sure how Peter will find out. In some ways, I would really like to see Walter tell Peter. It would be the best way for Peter to learn the truth, and it would be significant. But I just don’t think Walter would ever voluntarily tell him. This secret is too important to him. There would have to be something really huge that would cause Walter to choose to tell Peter.

        That said, if Walter’s not going to tell the truth, then there’s a part of me that really wants to see Olivia tell him. I think it would fit with her character. I could see her deciding that she just can’t keep it a secret anymore and she has to tell him. It could be awkward, but it would make sense. I could see it happening.

        However, as has been mentioned, I could also see Newton telling Peter. What modulegirl said makes a lot of sense. So that could also happen.

        Another idea is that something will happen in the course of their investigation that essentially reveals the truth about him. Maybe he will get sick or a specific case will somehow show that he’s different. That would be enough to raise his suspicions, leaving Walter and Olivia in a position where essentially they have no choice but to confirm it.

          Your last theory was something that I’ve been thinking about too. In the new music video promo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-PH8yF43MI&feature=player_embedded) there are scenes that indicate that Peter got hurt or perhaps that something is happening to him. I really feel that the reveal will come out not as Walter had intended it to. Whether it be from Walter being forced to explain it to Peter (due to certain things that had been happening to him), Olivia telling him, Peter figuring it out himself, or being told by someone else (not Walter or Olivia). There are so many possibilities.

    Lightning just stroke me: Maybe Elizabeth was in the Lab when Carla Warren died, so that she did something to Carla who wanted to bring Peternate back to his Universe, Elizabeth wanted to prevent Carla from bringing Peter back, there was a fight, something went wrong and Walter let it look like an accident but couldn’t handle it as Elizabet was/is unrepentant.
    Then Bell came around, took parts of Walters brain out including the one remembering the ‘accident’ and Walter went to the asylum – and from there on we know the story.

    I have long held that the ONLY person to tell Peter about his origins is Newton. If he is working for Walternate, he may have a vested interest in Peter knowing. And no one else who knows wants to tell Peter (regardless of what this week’s previews show Olivia doing or saying). No one wants to hurt him and this will hurt bad. And everyone knows that Peter is a runner and this is the type of news to make anyone run. I think Newton will be the one to make the reveal and Peter will know the truth of what he says and no one will be able to deny it. I cannot see Walter or Olivia organically revealing the truth, but I can totally see Newton doing it.

      Oh! I just read your post after I posted mine. I totally agree! I’ve always thought that Peter would not find out from Walter or Olivia, I also suspected that it would be Newton. Like you said, Peter is a runner, and although he has somewhat left his past behind, and started new, eventually it will catch up to him and he will most likely go back to his old habits.

    You know, I still feel that Peter won’t find out the truth until maybe episode “2.20”, after the musical episode. Maybe the “upsetting news” Walter is dealing with during “2.19” has something to do with the observers? Like perhaps they tell him something.
