Fringe Recap - "Entrada" - Page 2
Walter tries to figure out how to cross over to save Olivia and, frustrated by his failure, turns to pastries Alternate Olivia bought him for comfort. Broyles discovers that Alternate Olivia has stolen a piece of the machine (the machine is getting very Rambaldi-like IMHO, JJ). The team gets a lead when they realize that Alternate Olivia has been spending time in the Bronx (thanks to the pastries Olivia bought). This leads them to discovering the creepy typewriter used to communicate between universes. With it, they find out where Alternate Olivia will be, confront and capture her.
The Walternate Universe
In the Walternate universe, orders are given to extract Alternate Olivia and to harvest Olivia's organs for scientific study. Alternate Broyles witnesses Olivia being dragged off, screaming for help and, feeling guilty, goes drinking. After knocking back a few, he returns to talk to Olivia in prison. She explains that they're going to kill her, cut out her brain for study, then send her body back in exchange for Alternate Olivia. She begs for help, he refuses and leaves.
Alternate Broyles is conflicted. Saving his universe means going to war with ours. If he trusts Olivia, who tells him there is no war, and she is lying to him, he could doom his universe. If she isn't lying to him…
He chooses to trust her, rescue her and help her cross over.
Well. What a ride! In past episodes, we've had solid stories set in one or the other universe, in this episode, we flashed back and forth from one to the other which can be a little confusing to some - I enjoyed it. Seeing the differences from one universe to the other is like an Easter Egg hunt (like 'Springsteen Station'). Sometimes the changes are subtle, sometimes whole buildings are different.
With "Entrada", Peter is pissed.
There is no other word for it. He is just pissed. He's been duped, used, manipulated and had his emotions used against him. Beyond his anger is his guilt - he feels guilty. He had feelings for Olivia before any of this began and it was those feelings that convinced him to leave the Walternate universe in the first place. To learn now that the woman he loved was left behind and he didn't even know it?Continued on the next page
