Throughout the past several weeks, there have been many, many videos from the publicity people at Fringe. Although most of the recent videos have focused on recapping the series' past three seasons, four earlier videos seemed to point directly to the show's future in season 4.

None of these videos, however, gave us more than a quick glimpse of what's to come. That all changes with a new video, "Where is Peter Bishop?"
The video, released by FOX on September 16, contains a few of the older pieces of imagery, together with a whole host of previously-unseen moments from season 4. Check it out below:
Did you get all that? Did you need to watch it a few times?
Just in case you don't have time to watch the video obsessively (that's my job), here are the high points contained in "Where is Peter Bishop?"
- Immediately, the increased and now-important presence of Lincoln Lee (Seth Gabel) is made clear. At least for the first few episodes, it looks like Lincoln might be something of a Peter replacement.
- The gross-out factor on Fringe is obviously not going anywhere, if slimy/veiny guy has anything to do with it.
- "There is no one else. There is just me." Awww... Poor, lonely Olivia!
- As if Walter wasn't Dr. Frankenstein-y enough, he's now reanimating corpses (albeit briefly).
- Can no one speak of Fringe division at all now? Interesting...
- Look carefully for quick flashes of Observer stuff, lots of corpses, icky little bits and Walter in the isolation tank.
- "I don't know if there's anything sadder than two people are meant to be together, and something intervenes. I'm not wearing pants." Thus, Walter more or less sums up the themes of Fringe.
- All of those fuzzy, interference bits contained Peter footage. He really isn't going away.
- The Observers seem awfully concerned about people finding out about a non-existent Peter. Good.
Something not seen at all in any of this? The alternate universe. Every bit of footage seems to come squarely from our universe, echoing the simpler times of season 1 when assigning a universe to Fringe
footage wasn't even a question.
It's all very confusing. And interesting.
