wendelah1: (Peter and Olivia)

I'd forgotten how plot-heavy the episode is, chock full of significant meetings and partial reveals. Peter sees his parents again for the first time. Agent Lee has his first, inauspicious meeting with Alt!Livia. "Who the hell are you?" she asks Peter, the father of her child in the other timeline. The face-to-face meeting of the two Lincolns is a fan favorite.

More timeline differences surface: Colonel Broyles is compromised and working for David Robert Jones, but Walternate isn't as bad a guy as Peter had originally thought. Both governments are being infiltrated by the new alien/human hybrids human/shape-shifter hybrids; moreover, Walternate isn't the genius behind them this time around. Charlie is still nowhere to be found--is he still on his honeymoon? There's no hint that the Other Side's Lincoln has feelings for their Olivia, but the one on this side is already mooning over ours. Well, we know how that turned out. Olivia has never tried to crossover to the other universe and as far as we know, she can't.

If you've found other changes in the timeline, please leave them in the comments.

There's one other meeting worth a mention: Olivia's fateful encounter with September. See most memorable quote.

Synopsis:
After being given the brushoff by Walter, Peter asks for Olivia's help to visit the Other Side. Peter wants Walternate's help to get back to his own universe. Olivia and Agent Lee put in a requisition to get Walter's quantum mirror out of storage at Massive Dynamic to use for an unauthorized reconnaissance mission/Peter's visit with his father. Worst idea ever, people. Doesn't our Fringe division know about the Show-Mes in this timeline? Doesn't Peter? You can't take a taxi or use public transportation without swiping your I.D. first.

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that the same device that was responsible for damaging two universes when Walter used it? What possible reason could they put on the req to Massive Dynamic that wouldn't put up a massive red flag?

Most Memorable Quote:
THE OBSERVER: (strained) I have come to tell you something... Olivia.
OLIVIA: How did you know my name? How do you know my -- (holsters weapon. looks at his chest) you've been shot?
THE OBSERVER: I came to tell you... I have looked at all possible futures... and in every one, the result is the same. You have to die.
