Background on Bishop: Peter-Centric Episode of Fringe Ahead

at . Comments

On February 4, Fringe goes on hiatus, as Fox feature the new show Past Life in a prime time slot for a few weeks.

But producer Akiva Goldsman is giving fans a reason to tune in when the mysterious series returns:

On April 1, Fringe will air an episode simply titled "Peter." As you can guess, it will open "a window into the mysteries of Peter that have been promised since the first season," Goldsman told Michael Ausiello this week. He added:

“It’s an episode that’s fundamentally about his relationship to Walter and the truth of where they are right now, which is pretty revelatory to the characters and hopefully the audience... questions about Peter’s identity and mortality go a long way towards being answered.”

As for developments in Peter/Olivia relationship? The producer has something to say about that, as well:

“The romantic elements of their relationship will come forward pretty soon. Like any courtship, it wanes, and then it comes back again. So that’s going to make another move forward [on February 4], and then we’ll keep addressing it throughout the season.”

Fringe airs "The Bishop Revival" tonight. We'll review it in detail soon after it concludes.

Fringe Quotes

Peter: Hello. Walter is that you? I can hear you breathing.
Janitor: Is this Peter Bishop?
Peter: Yes.
Janitor: I'm calling from NY. I know this is going to sound crazy but I just saw a woman disappear in front of my eyes.
Peter: Who is this?
Janitor: Her name was Olivia. She has a message for you; she's trapped in the other universe

You, Olivia, have the ability to bend things with your mind. That's what you're doing in this drawing, if you look at it the right way.

Walter
