Alternate Astrid stops by this side for a visit with her counterpart, and ends up being instrumental in solving the case. A Fringe division composed of agents from both universes investigates a string of deaths that were seemingly predicted.

Closure for the case comes when Olivia and Peter track Neil to Reiden Lake; Olivia ends up killing him after he appears to be shooting at her. Shortly thereafter, two observers sneak into his house and steal the device Neil was using, saying it belonged to September and was lost the night he did not save Peter from drowning.

To make the universes vibrate at the same frequency, Jones uses cortexiphan subjects as the tuning device, which results in earthquakes across both worlds. In the alternate universe, Nick Lane comes to Lincoln saying that he had a vision about the earthquakes before they occurred. Together they cross over.

Jessica Holt contacts Olivia, who, along with Peter, meets her and an Observer in the abandoned warehouse. They learn that Jessica works for Bell before the Observer and Jessica are shot; Peter and Olivia take her body back to the lab to interrogate about Bell‘s location with Nina‘s assistance. After Olivia realizes that she is the energy source Bell needs to complete the destruction of the worlds, she, Nina, and Peter board a helicopter bound for Bell‘s freighter. When they arrive at its supposed location, only Peter can see it because it is in the other universe. Peter and Olivia combine their abilities to arrive on the ship. Onboard, Bell says that he cannot shut off the collapse, so Walter shoots Olivia through the head, and the worlds are saved.

It‘s the first part of a two-part Fringe finale tonight and all is bittersweet. The end of season four is near, yet there are so many answers to open-ended questions to learn! I don‘t know if I‘d rather look away to prolong the inevitable or face my fears head on. I guess I should ask myself, "WWWD?" Translation being, "What Would Walter Do?" Clever, right? Walter Bishop has a childlike nature as seen through most of the season, yet as a leader amongst his Fringe family, Walter has definitely stepped up to the plate. Tonight, audiences will see even more from this lovable character.Last week, the bridge between both universes was closed. We waved goodbye to Lincoln Lee and the alternate Fringe Division, but welcomed the end to the supposed reign of terror from ultimate bad guy David Robert Jones. Tonight‘s episode will require that Walter return to the dark times in his life, forcing him to face his issues head on in order to help explain an event that causes people to spontaneously combust.  Read more »

TV series that are adapted from movies are rarely successful but there are a few exceptions and it looks like CBS‘ Bad Teacher is one of them, at least based on the promos released by the network. If you haven‘t seen the 2011 movie starring Cameron Diaz, who also happens to be the producer of the comedy series, it‘s about a gold-digging middle school teacher who curses at her students and whose motivation includes marrying a wealthy man and getting a boob job. While the groundwork is essentially the same, the TV series has plenty to offer as far as character development and plot are concerned. Read more »
Every year, some of our favorite shows go off the air for the last time. Even the most diehard TV watchers would admit that few shows have universally beloved series finales. Friday Night Lights, Breaking Bad and The Shield are the ones that come to mind for me.While there are shows with controversial endings that are hated by many, beloved by a few, like The Sopranos, St. Elsewhere and Dexter, we instead want to look at series finales that are controversial for another reason: whether or not they provided "answers" to the long, over-arching mythology the show promised to.  Read more »
