In the last Fringe episode, "An Origin Story," we saw Peter Bishop insert a creepy bit of Observer technology into his own brain. What consequences will that action bring? These three videos -- all of which have footage from the upcoming episode, "Through the Looking Glass and What Walter Found There," give us our first hints.
WARNING: There are some big Fringe season 5 spoilers in these videos. If your curiosity can be overcome, you probably should avoid watching them. But where's the fun in that? So indulge that dangerous curiosity and continue on!
The first Fringe video is a combination of interviews and brief footage from "Through the Looking Glass and What Walter Found There."
- I am so sorry that you had to watch that footage of Peter's Observer bug going in again. So creepy...
- Both Joshua Jackson and Anna Torv are sporting some hardcore facial injuries there. That's not so good for them.
- Of course Peter is going to lie about the Observer tech.
- Still, he sounds pretty normal when he talks to Olivia. Maybe it isn't so bad.
- "When he sets his mind to doing something, the moral implications don't seem to bother him too much." That is a very true statement about Peter Bishop.
- When the Observer tells Peter he's made a grave mistake, does that refer to inserting the tech? Or does he just mean Peter challenging an Observer directly?
- Like father, like son...
Lest we think that Observer tech will simply erase Peter's emotions, this second video proves us wrong. Peter is acting kind of unfeeling toward Olivia, but it's only because of his Etta-related grief.
Is it just me, or is it a lot easier to just travel around now than it was in last season's "Letters of Transit"? Not that this is important -- the important thing is the grief and the bonding that occurs over Etta's holographic message.
You just have to wonder if the sad parents will ever be able to stop watching their lost daughter.
The final video is a standard promo for "Through the Looking Glass and What Walter Found There."
There is a definite Alice's Adventures in Wonderland feel to this funky little universe. Considering the title of the episode (which is a play on the full title of the Alice sequel by Lewis Carroll), this should not surprise us. But it's seriously cool!
"Through the Looking Glass and What Walter Found There" airs on Friday, November 9 at 9pm on FOX.
