Fringe Recap - "Entrada" - Page 3
The other story really is Alternate Broyles. As I've said before, I have come to care for the alternate versions of these characters and Alternate Broyles is a good example of why. He's an honorable man, he believes that he is doing the right thing by being a part of the Fringe division, protecting his people, his world from this threat that he's been told about for so long (more on that in a sec). He is torn by the fact that when confronted with the enemy, Olivia, she isn't what he expects her to be. Like him, she is honorable too. She gets to him, he relates to her and, in the end, chooses to believe in her and sets her free.
Last time, I mentioned that I don't understand why, when Olivia tried to escape before and during the tests Walternate did, she wasn't able to 'stick' in our universe. Tonight they may have explained that. Just before she slipped into the sensory deprivation tank, she took an injection of the cortexaphan Walternate had synthesized. I can only assume that this made the difference and allowed her to 'stick' in our universe.
The threat - I am wondering now. Is there really a threat? Did Walter crossing over all those years ago really cause all the damage we're seeing? Or is it something else? Maybe Walternate's attempts to cross over from that side is what's causing all the damage, and the Fringe Division and everything that goes with it, is simply their way of covering it all up?
Something to think about…
