Do not miss this week's episode of Fringe, "The Bullet That Saved the World." Not only is it an incredible example of what Fringe has become in its final season, it's also something of a major game-changer. Want to get a peek at what you will see? Check out four these preview clips!
WARNING: Fringe season 5 spoilers lie ahead. That can be scary. We understand. Just take a deep breath, hit play on the videos and everything will be all right. Probably. This is, after all, Fringe. We can't make any promises.
The first of the Fringe videos is a rather long one. But you definitely want to stay until the end. That's when it gets good.
- What kinds of things are in a pawn shop in the dystopian, Observer-controlled future?
- A pillow with a pithy saying embroidered on it
- A Simon game (which inexplicably has working batteries -- those games **never have working batteries)
- An electric guitar
- A silver necklace
- A surprisingly helpful Observer
OK, so the Observers don't remember that there was baseball? That seems odd. Especially since they have to have encountered that when trying to read people in the past.
The second of the videos takes us back to the lab and gives away the fact that Peter totally escaped from the Observers and Loyalists.
Poor Astrid, having to deal with Walter's impatience all the time... Much more important than that, however, is Peter's frustration following that run-in with the Observer. At least Etta is positive -- her mind trick is teachable, after all.
The third video from "The Bullet That Saved the World" takes us under the lab and into Walter's museum of Fringe horrors.
Yes, Walter saved souvenirs from each of those frightening, horrifying Fringe cases we saw in the first four years of the series. Of course he did.
The final video shows starts off with an Observer playing the Simon game and gets weirder from there.
How exactly has Broyles managed to stay in the employment of the Observers while showing that much contempt for his boss. Also, how well-done is Broyles' old-man makeup here?
"The Bullet That Saved the World" airs Friday, October 26 at 9pm on FOX. Don't miss it.
