There's really no need for anything else on TV.

Production values? Yes, amazing. As a techie and an artist--scrumptious. There's fanart for me to work on for days and days, I will be re-watching and re-watching. Color! Visuals to die for--sets, props, great cars like boats...

But the story! The story! In the best tradition of Hammet and Chandler ---and Bradbury. I could so see Ray Bradbury having made this,it was like 'Dandelion Wine' wrapped in Earle Stanley Gardner. A dark morality tale set in sunny......Los Angeles-meets-Boston? With the otherworldly touches Bradbury would have loved.

Roundabout! Perfect for Walter. Gene! No licking! (Yep, she could have knocked down little Ella, and erm, ugh, cow spit. I'll bet Noble added that line, he's a farm boy. But I digress.)

Nice way of dealing with the Rachel storyline, guys! Pow! And thank you. *Hugging Ella and the writers*.

Now we have to figure out some way for Broyles to sing again, Reddick has a great voice.

And the props! That blower of Nina's! Her black widow veil! All the costuming was excellent. The lab!! OMG, it was psychedelic, the props folks must have gone bonkers doing the set dressing--spectacular. I want my house to look like that at Christmas.

All the echoes and calls--Peter hauling Olivia up out of the water, the recurrent 'operation' game......... and enough romance and love metaphor (I almost said religious!) to feast on for weeks.

Great fight scene! Olivia kicking that guy in the brisket in her bare
feet!! You go, girl! Torv was excellent here, nice, so nice to see her off her leash emotionally. (Tip to BR: do this more often, please!).

Peter rocking the vest...... looking mighty
nice clean shaven, too...and what a nice scene they have, him steadying
her... there is the burgeoning of a wonderful partnership of equals
there on the brink, I am sure. I can't wait for that.

Olivia's serenade for Peter.... O, my heart. Someone to keep her warm and feed her and dance with her, and she's losing him now she's found him.... crying again here.

-----------> see, TV critics and writers? This is how romance can be written that feels like real humans live it.

Bad Robot don't write down to us, they give us something to think about and reach for. They packed more in this one hour (it was only an hour, right?) than many series do in a season: drama, a mystery, great bold splashes of character, intrigue, twists....high octane stuff. It only looks like candy.

Yay for Gene in her Party Dots! And what great roles for the Watchers! Nina communicating with the cartoon Bell through Walter's window!! And the creepily fun Brandon, smarmy even in a pre-MD incarnation--perfect! He could do Peter Lorre roles...

Nice how the story doubles back, as the regular Fringe story has, without the Byzantine antics of Lost..even within the framework of Walter's medications the characters came through as believable. With the sorrow of last week, and the sorrow to come, and the re-positioning of roles, this was a great gift--helping Walter and us along. Solid 10.

Encore! Encore!

Oh, and hats off to the designers of the fabulously beautiful heart enclosures for the Bishops! Like reliquaries, really. Something you'd find a saint's heart in, in an old cathedral. Even the glyphys spelled out heart........ that's in the Head over Heels lyrics too, off to look for the Roundabout ones........

A chromo for the person who can name the tune Peter and Olivia dance to at the end... the lyrics are pretty fine

I'll bet Kreisler knows what it was..........so Peter likes Coltrane! Good man.

Such a great episode ! It's the great French (born in Belgium) guitar player Django Reinhardt with Coleman Hawkins in Blue Moon (1935)

Yes!

My Mom used to hum it to me when I was a kid, dance around with me on her toes...Rodgers and Hart, I think?

some lines of the text:

Blue Moon, you saw me standing alone,
Without a dream in my heart,
Without a love of my own,
Blue moon, you knew just what I was there for,
You heard me saying a prayer for,
Someone I could care for,

And then there suddenly appeared before me,
Someone my arms could really hold,
I heard you whisper "Darling please adore me,"
And when I looked to the moon it had turned to gold,



And really, there could always be more Django...*sigh*.

I love how several things that happened without Walter seeing or hearing made it into the story that way.

And him taking her hand when he said he was dying...calming her hands
so she could steady and save him...they really did that scene
beautifully. Impressive.

Yes. While wearing his pajamas, after he has warmed her and fed her, and danced the fighting enemies dance with her........


---He is always feeding her, isn't he!

*grins mightily at Pinkner and Wyman and Goldsman*

it's just me or there were lots of references of previous episodes ???
I think at the "You did it" from ability, "You're gonna be fine" from the transformation, "who cares about you?" referencing at the "I care about you" from bound...
and I certainly miss some others...

BTW, it was great to see Olivia like that and her tirade about a guy who keep her warm etc... even if it just was fiction...
and I agree with you Lez... PETER ! *sighs*

You're quite welcome.

I did notice! There were lots of nice little touches like that.

There were lots of those references!

And often mirrored, from her to him..as when he is dead and gasps alive
as she goes to kiss him goodbye, same as her in the hospital and him
bringing her back to life.

Though that list of what she wants was "fiction", it is fiction within
a fiction, and if Shakespeare can use it to get at the truth, so can
Bad Robot. They wouldn't have written the whole thing this way if
their hearts weren't in it.

Oh my. It was a wonderful episode. So original. I loved it really. Of course, many references and a visible symbolism, but the script was very good. This tale, this fantasy, coming from Walter, was very special and very beautiful. Very funny, too (I think about the corpses singing, lol)
I am happy that they took this kind of risk. The actors have beautiful voices. I've loved Jasika when she sang her part. It was great. All of them were perfect.
I applaud !!!
I'll rewatch it with a great pleasure !!

I think she was ready since jacksonville

and even if writers give us a so beautiful episode, they have a little heartless side... I think at Olivia finding out the truth about Peter just when she's ready to open to him, Peter finding out the truth just when he's ready to call Walter Dad... it's so sad...
