Well i'll be dipped in...

Well, for starters...I'm not happy with Peter suddenly going from Badass to Off-the-range-Psycho? Hopefully, like all the other twists that i've been prsented with so far, it will smooth out or at least make more sense but right now, i'm in WTF-territory. Its not like his little hunting mission even helped anybody (on this side at least)...

Also a bit annoyed with the Peter/Olivia discontent. I fully admit that i'm a romantic at heart but it really bugs me that in almost all television, once a couple have finally started getting together, the writers start throwing every trope invented at them to extend the play...

Its one of the reasons I drifted from Castle and i've heard it didn't do Bones any good either. Thankfully, its just a small aspect of Fringe but in a way, that just pisses me off even more. Fringe has more than enough going for it that it needs to play the relationship games other shows rely on.

On the flipside, I'm really liking calculator!Astrid. However, did I miss an explanation of why she's like that? Its a bit odd, even for the AltVerse.

This First People thing seems really awesome. Very Assassins Creed. The Numbers thing bugs me though... maybe I missed something but how did those numbers translate into modern co-ordinates? Do they even account for continental drift over 10+ million years? Plus, that first uncovered part didn't see particularly deep underground, either....

And Walternate?! Holy shit...the cortexiphan trials! What a fucking twist...he's about as cold-blooded as it gets yet he ends the experiments!

That is one hell of a juxtaposition. Probably one of the best character developments i've seen in a while... Nice to see the bastard was just a harsh by the end of events but yeah, really deep stuff there.

And I vote for Walternate's 'Grandfather Smile' as the creepiest fucking thing i've seen all week. And consider just what show i've been watching for said week should tell you something right there...

and who the hell is that Bowling Guy?

I thought he was just some really good counsellor but that conversation with Nina means he's a serious player. Is he like an anti-Oberserver or something? A 'Listener', perhaps? He's always struck me as being a little too warm and charismatic for a throwaway character... he certainly seems like a polar opposite of the bald guys...

Heh, X-Files wishes it was this deep.
