Fringe - Neither Here Nor There

Welcome to what is probably the last season of Fringe. The premiere of season four brought a lot of the sweet humor we enjoy, especially with Walter.

Without Peter, Olivia is a lot colder and less trusting. Walter is a lot more skittish and agoraphobic. But Peter isn’t completely gone. He blips in and out, showing himself to Walter in the mirror and the TV screen, and to the viewer like Tyler Durden blips in the beginning of Fight Club.

Lincoln Lee’s partner dies and he joins the Fringe Division. With Peter erased, Lee never worked with Fringe/doesn’t remember Olivia. He has never been more likeable to us. Here, he was tenacious, sympathetic, and served as an emotional center in a show with characters that seem pretty dead without Peter.

This episode wasn’t boring, but it didn’t have the bang we’ve come to expect from a season premiere. It just felt like a regular episode, and the case of the week wasn’t creepy or interesting, compared to most other Fringe cases.

Episode Grade: B-


  1. This one didn't grab me at all. Hoping to see a major improvement (and something truly creepy) next time. The Observer thing is truly eating on my nerves. Still, love watching Walter; the guy is just plain fun to watch.

  2. We thought the next one was a little better. This show needs to go out strong. We don't think it's as good as everyone else does, but it's good enough to have a great last season. We are convinced this is the last season.
