Fringe 4.8 “Back to Where You’ve Never Been” Review
The choice of title “Back To Where You’ve Never Been” is really awesome. I reminded my self how ignorant I’ve been about all the characters. While the show slowly unveils the unexpected, it can be the case that Peter has no home where he can go back.
At the beginning of the story you can see Peter with Olivia and Walter having pancakes in breakfast. Waking up from his dream, he wishes to get back home for sure. Olivia and Lincoln have improved on working together and they are going to another Universe along with Peter.
Elizabeth realizes that Peter has turned into an adult when he tells her that her husband plans on killing her. Though she has that much sense not to believe in it, she know it will never happen.
Charlie and Altivia have been taken off from their case. All the characters are now wondering if Olivia is right in whatever she said about Walternate, is he someone else than what they think he was?
While on one side where Fringe team is rethinking over Walternate, Elizabeth feels hundred percent sure about her husband’s innocence. Walternate had put it really well by saying that everything that you see is not as you see it. Walternate and Peter seek each other’s help. It is leading to a huge desperation building up.
Peter was taken aback with surprise with Walternate’s trust in him. Walternate told Peter that as he is not devoted to any universe he can very well be trusted to take the right step. He requested Peter to convey a message to the other universe that he is not the shapeshifter culprit. Leaving his personal motives behind, Peter will be out to save the universes again.
Anna Torv has been successful in playing out so many characters on the show which include: 1) Olivia Dunham 2) Fauxlivia Dunham 3) Fauxlivia acting as Olivia 4) Olivia thinking she is Fauxlivia 5) Olivia acting as Fauxlivia 6) Bellivia 7) New Olivia Dunham 8.) Altlivia Dunham. I am still not sure if I have not missed anything out. I don’t understand how Josh Jackson has managed to face so many Olivias since the start!
The single hour of the show gave me a lot to think about with evidence that can build up on my theory. An Observer met Olivia while she was waiting for Peter, and he told her that she has to die. Olivia now needs to solve this riddle in context to Peter.
