Peter's not gone. It seems to me that paradox Peter served his purpose and is forgotten. Also he said the room is to serve as a bridge uniting the two universes, he was also about to go into depth about what the machine does before disappearing given it opens the door to new time lines where Peter still exists in respect to the first people he was speaking of. Elementary Quantum Physics.
I did not like the season finale at all. As great as last weeks epsiodes was this week was really lacking. And the way it ended with Peter never exhisting at all....wtf. Hated it so much. May NOT watch next season at all.
A theory popped into my mind as soon as the episode was over : the Observers say that "Peter never existed". But for Peter to have "a purpose", Walter must have crossed to the other universe and take Walternate's Peter back to his world, otherwise the whole storyline crumbles.
But remember that fact : when Walter crossed back, Peter fell into the frozen lake. And if it wasn't for the Observer, he would have died, and the damages into the material of the universe is done anyway !
So my theory is : the Observer saved Peter that very day so that a few years later, he could make the story happen as we know it and bring together the two Walters and Olivias, and fix what would stay a big mess if he had not been there.
What do you think ? Sound plausible ?
As for why they do not wonder what the hell they are doing altogether in the same room, I have no answer, and a very big frustration. WTF is wrong with those people always making my favourite character disappear ?! lol
The finale was a 5/5 for me. I cried when Olivia died. Enjoyed the Astrid/Ella/Walter scenes. And loved the way Peter came back and merged the two universes. That scene was the showdown I was waiting for. Although I'm hoping the two Olivia's work it out. For a split second it looked like Fauxlivia seemed rather intrigued by Olivia.
Also if Peter did not exist, then Olivia as a child who ran away from Walter's trials, would not come back to Walter and would not have crossed over and given Walternate her drawing book telling him about crossing over universes. Peter helped her come back, that was the first time they met and i think it was the sweetest thing ever!
I am very excited to see how the new season will pan out and i'm on board with anything the writers give us.
this episode will surely need multiple viewings before one can say it was underwhelming. it delivered so much information and new twists that its basically a set up for next season. i believe josh will return. after seeing both sets of the fringe div appear together in the same room and their reactions was enough for me. 5/5 ep. no other show since lost has turned the tables the way this show does. hats off to the writers. no one saw the ending coming. for a minute i was convinced that we would be watching the only the future storyline going forward and that there would be no more us and the alt universe. boy was i mistaken.
Perhaps it was all a dream and reality will be revealed in next season. Peter never disappeared and the destruction of the universe was just a nightmare from which the characters will awaken???
I loved the ending. I think they twisted it well enough to make me extremly excited for the new season. Peter may have not existed but, I think there will be remnants of him through both olivias and thats whats gonna make them start questioning things. You can never remove all when your moving through time. Great show, wonderful writers, and producers, and everyone involved. looking forward to fall. thank you fringe for giving me a show i can really really enjoy!
Last week's episode was so emotion driven, it would have been hard to keep that level all throughout this episode. I like that they took it down a notch and then went completely left field. It didn't bother me that they didn't really "explain", the half truths are kinda what attracts me to Fringe, I get to make up my own decisions. A show that not only makes me think, but encourages it!
Given what we know of the Observers, they have the ability to know the past & future. We also know they like to "experiment" with human nature & behaviors. What if our two universes were always meant to destroy each other? What if that is our destiny? Then it would make perfect sense for them to "create" a reason to speed up the process as well as a means to correct it. So, Peter no longer existing is a moot point. He doesn't have to exist if the destruction was always going to happen. He does have to exist to bring us together to fix the problem. The writers can create any number of reasons why the two universes have animosity, but the easiest is the destruction of each universe. Walternate doesn't have to have a son to believe we are causing the destruction of his home.I'm interested to see how they write Peter next season. For that, I have no idea. Which is why the finale is a 10 in my book.
Have to agree with you. I was sort of disappointed with the finale. I hope Season four comes back strong. If ratings don't improve, it will probably be the last season. Writers please give it a good ending!!
you definitely are an anomaly reviewer - this episode had me on a rollercoaster of emotions and i think it's one of the best ever..actually the perfect cap to the season - i loved the new twists and the emotion, so i'm sorry u were underwhelmed but i think i'm in the majority when i say this episode rocked my world!!
