It's often hard to know where Fringe is going. Especially now in season 5, this sci-fi show constantly twists and turns in ways we never thought possible. Do Fringe spoilers help with this? It's hard to say, but we should take whatever we can get. With that in mind, here are a bunch of spoilers -- and a promo video for "The Bullet That Saved the World."WARNING
: There are Fringe
season 5 spoilers in this article. As you may have guessed. Continue at your own peril.A Look into the Future of This Week
The next Fringe
episode, "The Bullet That Saved the World," seems likely to pit our heroes against the Observers again. This is difficult. The promo video for the episode makes this very, very clear.
- Of course the Observers are always two steps ahead. They know the future don't they? Or is that ability gone now?
- "It's time we created a few Fringe cases of our own." It's not like they don't have the experience to make that work...
- Etta looks to be in a rather perilous situation in the promo. She had better make it out OK!
- Speaking of perilous situations, is Peter about to get blown up at the end there?
