I have tried everything that I can think of, everything that I know how to do to get back home. And none of it has worked. And nobody here can help me. You can. I know you can. Please… Help me get back home.
I was reading reviews on TV.com for “The End of All Things” and I stumbled across this:
In what is perhaps the most brilliant reveal this show has ever provided, Fringe validates both the Cortexiphan trials of Bell & Bishop as well as the timeless love affair between Peter & Olivia with one simple yet shocking premise: the Mitochondrial Eve of the Observers and the only successful case of the Jacksonville’s trials are one and the same Olivia Dunham. That way, Henry being born from the wrong mother is decimating their race one at the time. All because September’s curiosity picked the best of him when Henry’s father was still a child. Everything from August’s fatherly attachment to September’s child like curiosity are being explained in one swift move, leaving Peter to save his grandchildren from the glaring paradox that is his own son and, what should have been, the rightful mother.
Is this official? If so, it’s brilliant storytelling by Fringe! Sad, but so very brilliant (not to mention original… I mean what other show has ever ever ever done a plotline like THIS?). I mean I know September was implying Peter had the wrong child because it was supposed to be with our Olivia and not the alternate Olivia and that’s why he got temporarily erased - to erase Henry, the baby that was never meant to be - but was September also implying that the Observers stemmed from Peter and Olivia’s future child? Are the Observers really being “decimated” because “the wrong child was born”?
See? THIS ^ is why this show is awesome. Among many other reasons.
