Fringe > Fringe Review: Make Way For A Different Happy Ending > Comments Page 2
It was alright. The shifter device was gross. Some good scenes between the Lincolns and all 3. The case was boring besides Fringe team turning the tables on Jones.
So upset about AltLincoln, I mean to me he was the real Lincoln, cute, confident, and I loved Alt-Livia and him together. This season's 'real' Lincoln doesn't even come close to comparing to me. I would have rather seen Peter go over to the other side since he could have debriefed them on Jones and seen AltLincoln, AltLivia, and Peter interact.
Gah, I'm seriously pissed they did this. I love the alternate universe, but I really want them to wrap up Peter's being erased from existence SL, because I'm still wondering if the rest of the characters will remember Peter and then start to remember their old lives? Will Altlivia ever remember having a child? Since Olivia is forgetting this life more and more, will we have just wasted this entire season trying to invest in new personalities and histories of our main characters?
I will miss AltLincoln the most!
This was a great episode! The stories are coming together so perfectly. Honestly, this was the 1st time I was really interested in the alt-universe. Now, I'm very interested in seeing more of them. I was feeling a little tiny bit bad for Lincoln when he lost Olivia but now I'm so glad he's going to stay with alt-Olivia. I hope there's another season because there is so much going on that I don't want to be left hanging. Side Note, can we do something for Astrid? She's such an underdeveloped character. The girl's only got 1 episode in 4 yrs.

This is not Felicity or Greys Anatomy. This seems to like the last season of Lost, where the concentrated so hard on relationships they forgot the had a story to end properly.
I actually kinda agree with BigBopChip. They should get back to the overall plot and not get bogged down with the relationships. I admit it was good to see Peter and Olivia back together but lets get back to the cases. The first and second seasons eps. had it just right, with character development, cases, and overall plot growing apace.
Another splendid episode! The interaction between the two universes always seem to feel like Fringe's finest moments.
YES, Alt-Broyles must be a shape-shifter! And, finally, the evil Alt-Nina is (hopefully) brought to task for her duplicity.
And, yeah, neb8fan, that definitely looked like an umbilical cord to me, too. Too creepy!
The glyphs spelled out "Dream". Now, with the title of last weeks' episode, "Nothing As It Seems", I wonder what Fringe has in store for us. The title this week, "Everything In Its Right Place" certainly seemed apropo, like it was a resetting of things, to leave (our) Lincoln where he is supposed to be. Perhaps, like Peter, he has now found "his" Olivia.
1. Good episode! It was a relief to get away from Olivia, Peter, and Walter. The writers have mucked up their characters beyond recovery. RIP.
2. We don't know that Canaan was the first, only that he was one of the earliest human shapeshifters. Do we have any idea why Jones switched to humans? Easier/cheaper?
3. Sorry, but I think desperate, lonely Lincoln1 stepping into Lincoln2's shoes is nothing short of creepy. If this was 2 years after Lincoln2's death, or if Lincoln2 was still around, it wouldn't bother me, but stepping in as a sort of rebound for himself ... Ew!
4. What was up with Nina2? She looked like a broken doll.
5. I hope we spend next week in Walternateland, seeing how Broyles-the-shapeshifter (I'm guessing he is, although he could be cooperating with Jones for motives of which we're not yet aware) scrambles to stop the unraveling of Jones' evil plans.
Anna Torv and Seth Gabel were simply amazing tonight. It was a great episode.
Such a good episode, after last weeks slight drop. I've always been irritated at writers who bring characters as romantic foils who are only going to get dumped so leading man and leading lady can get together. This was such a satisfying development for Lincoln Tyrone Lee (seriously Civil War much?!). I don't know if the writers are going to have Red Olive and Lincoln get together, might be interesting to see; as long as it doesn't feel anemic I'm good.
I'd be interested to see how Lincoln or where Lincoln changed from his alt. I think we all have those days when we wonder who we might have become. Lincoln is there because Peter is back. He's got inside information because Peter knows things from the old time line. Peter's presence is sending out ripples and their enemies better beware or better yet not ;).
I so that Astrid was about to tell Broyles she knew he was the mole, and I look forward to Lincoln to picking up that thread as the outsider. This season has been so good at
I think pieces are falling back into place. Lincoln was not part of the team in the old timeline, and so they had to find a way to return things to how they were with only one of the Lincoln's being on the alt-Fringe Division. And I'm assuming Alt-Broyles is already dead and this is a shape-shifter. All that's left now, is to try to change the Observer's prediction of Olivia dying (which did happen in the future, but NO! IT MUST BE STOPPED!)
Actually to counter BigBopChip, I thought this was a rather good and strong episode in that the title fit the episode perfectly.
The episode was really about Lincoln and how he could really return to where he belonged, lets face it he never really fit in the blue universe.
He tried hard, but because he wasn't there from the start, he didn't feel one of the family, so how to rectify this.
Simple help the red universe, replace their lincoln (not hard since they mostly shared the same memories) stay a while and became the red Lincoln.
The Blue universe goes back to having the same members we have come to know and love over the last 4 seasons, and the Red Universe goes back to having those same members we love also.
Hence the Title " Everything back in its right place" pefect Title for a Perfect episode
From the minute I saw last week's promo I dreaded this moment. This was the Lincoln we all first came to love last year, with his swaggering confidence and deep love for his Olivia (did anyone else see his smile when Altivia called him "my Lincoln"). I thought the scenes with the two Lincolns and Altivia- especially the Tyrone bit- were wonderful. And the discussion between the Lincolns was just perfect- I genuinely forgot that it was only one actor. In my opinion Seth Gabel's finest work.
RIP (alt) Lincoln Tyrone Lee. You'll be missed.
Didn't think this was a very good episode. Quite weak actually. I've never found Fauxlivia that interesting or convincing. Feels like the show is just spinning its wheels and going no where.
the writers and actors have done such a great job on this series creating the different alt characters. I found myself reminding myself tonight that it is one actor that has created a completely different olivia, walter, lincoln, estrid, etc. I'm not sure on this, but I think that this show has not won any emmy's and that is a shame.
side note: the shapeshifter 'device' looked like an umbilical cord to me.
