The residual effects of this season's new time-line have started to merge with previous stories told once again. When David Robert Jones' newest experiments begin to endanger both universes the alternate universe brings in "The Consultant".
This episode had that 'what if' feel to it.
It may only be the second episode of the season, but I'm saying this week's episode of Fringe might be the best of the year already. Even down a series regular (for story reasons of course; long live Peter!) the show has never been better.
Imagine a pregnancy without stretch marks or swollen feet, without cravings or contractions, and without wearing muumuus or getting morning sickness. Sound too good to be true ladies? All you need is a human easy bake oven from an alternate universe.
When the red credits role you know Fringe has something new in their bag of sci-fi tricks in story for the viewers at home. With the story being back in the alternate universe for the first time since the Olivia switch in "Entrada", this episode goes in an interesting direction for Fauxlivia starting to relive her old life.
If X-Men's Bobby Drake and Smallville's Jimmy Olsen were to have a scene together what would it look like? No, not so much a comic book crossover but maybe more like an Ashmore family reunion in this case.
Where would you be if there was a North and South Texas? Or if ball-point pens and avocados were so uncommon they would be considered rare? Why, you would be watching the newest episode of Fringe, entitled "The Plateau", of course.
Fringe is back folks. Everyone's favourite pseudoscience team, aka Fringe Division, is back to investigate the weird and unexplainable. There is just one problem; the people are the same but the characters are different.
