Since Fringe has returned from the mid season break it really has gone from strength to strength and found a way to blend the monster of the week episodes with the over arching mythology of the series as a whole. This was an issue at the start of this second season but those issues have been ironed out and now the show is producing some of the finest episodes on TV at the moment.
Last weeks episode featured the moment that we have all been waiting for since the end of season one; Peter finding out that he is not from this universe. This is the moment that the series has been building to for the whole of this season and produced some of the best work that this show has offered yet, performances of heartbreak coming from both Peter (Joshua Jackson) and Walter (John Noble). This coming so soon after Peter calls Walter Dad for the first time in years showed how far they had come since the pilot and therefore how much was going to be lost when Peter figured out why Walter has been more of an emotional mess of late.
It is unclear from the promo for this next episode 'Brown Betty' how much this will be a diversion from the path the show has been taking for these past few episodes or if this is just the way Walter is trying to deal with Peter disappearing. What we do know is that this episode in part is a musical one, taking part in Fox Music Week and that the style of it evokes film noir. I am definitely intrigued and looking forward to this episode of Fringe and here is the promo to wet your appetite as well:
