Fringe: Previewing Episode 2.07 "Of Human Action"
Thursday, November 12, 2009
The one thing I got cleared up after watching last week's Fringe: once you're in it, there's no going out. That should explain for Broyles' obsession with the cosmonaut case, one that tore his family apart. Also, probably, for Walter going towards great lengths to get himself a replacement Peter, possibly something that also tore his family apart (and we'll see that soon, now that they're casting Walter's wife).
There is, indeed, a lot at stake. This season, we've been going through a lot more than we thought of--everything's possibly connected to Walter, or to William Bell, or to Massive Dynamic, or to whatever. And all that, with a possible war between two universes looming? Ohh, I don't know how you'll be able to get away from this.
On tonight's Fringe, the team gets back from investigating that person-disintegrating-to-ash thing and goes to something seemingly more urgent: a kidnapping in New York becomes a hostage situation. Making things a bit harder to figure out is the person behind it--could it be mind control? Could it be that the guy really can use the full extent of his brain, perhaps beyond what Olivia can possibly do?
There could be a similarity with Olivia, or better yet, a connection to Massive Dynamic. The moment the Fringe Division uncovers that, hah, all hell breaks loose, it seems. Fringe returns tonight from 9pm on Fox. The photos, and a possible trip to the other side, are right below.
