So exciting! A perfect Friday night show. I think these might have been posted in the Season 4 thread, but just in case, Observer Public Service Announcements:

I like the "End The Oppression" and "Take Back America!" messages hidden within the Observers PSA's.  Man I love Fringe.

Promotional pics for episode 1 over at GMMRTV The first 6 are not too bad but the last one is very spoilery.

As he is wont to do on Fridays, Joel Wyman usually hops onto Twitter and sends some tidbits of info out to the fans. This time he tweeted a couple of pics:

Please don't shoot me. I love "Fringe". I have always liked the role of the Observers. However, I did not particularly enjoy the episode last season where they were running things in the future. I am not sure how much I look forward to the entire final season being based on this. Perhaps I am missing something. Oh, I will watch for sure, because I love the characters and most of the story. (And, maybe I just don't "get it", or, I am severely jet-lagged from so many shows jumping forward in time!)

Hey no problem Jeff. Who knows, maybe the show will finish up back in 'our' time? :)

There's a really nice interview with showrunner J.H. Wyman over at TV Line. You really get a feel for how emotionally invested he is in telling this story. The focus seems to be on resolving the characters' stories, rather than breaking a lot of new ground with mindbending science fiction, and that's exactly what I'm looking for as a viewer. I've invested four years with these characters. I want to see how they end up.

That scene with Walter in the ruined taxi cab at the end is the reason I watch this show. Just beautiful.

Looks like a cat and mouse final season, and that's OK. I did enjoy the season premiere very much, and I got teary-eyed when Olivia saw her daughter.

The reveal of the observers being baddies was jarring, but I'm slowly accepting it knowing September was an anomaly among his people, a scientist who got too involved with his subjects. We didn't know much else about them outside of what he showed us, so I can reasonably say we made some assumptions there.

Fringe reinvents itself every season and continues to grow the characters and deepen their bonds. That's what I love about this show. It doesn't stand pat. It pushes the boundaries of what a serialized TV show can do. Which, to me, is what the best SF based material does too. The bookend shots of the blooming dandelion and the flowering dandelion on scorched earth was a nice touch - and loved the Only You song played at the end. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Yod7jc8U94# Eggsticks! Yuck!!! The reunion scenes between Peter,Olivia, & Etta were great. Also enjoying the switch away from the case of the week. The focus switch this season means that every week what ever happens directly affects the characters as opposed to a COTW which parallels them. Excellent! And having Eddie the Bookstore Owner fawning over the ambered Olivia was a true extension of their one-sided flirting from the previous season. Have no problems with the Observers being painted as the bad guys nor do I find the shift jarring. Surprising? Yes. Cliche? Definitely not. Beyond a bit of necessary expository setup for this season, Season 5 has gotten off to an excellent start. Can't wait to see where this is going and how the season, and series, will finish.

John Noble told Entertainment Weekly (very minor spoilers): [SPOILER=Warning: Spoiler!]“I think the fascinating thing about this season as it goes forward is that Walter has set this up by planting a series of clues. It’s like a treasure hunt in a way,” says Noble. “And the genius thing that the writers have done this year — because we didn’t want to do monsters of the week — is that we have to chase a clue [per] week. So that creates the internal story of each week because we go after these bizarre clues in really strange places. Walter being Walter, he’s hidden them in weird, weird, weird places.” So it sounds like Walter and September prepared for the possibility that Walter's memories would be wiped, and hid the pieces elsewhere throughout New York City. I really like that because it ties in nicely with the show's theme that the past always comes back to haunt us. Only this time, it's in a good way instead of a bad way. Just as Walter in the first couple seasons was forever reassembling the pieces of his life that he'd scattered before being institutionalized, now they're reassembling the pieces of his plan to save the world, with the time in amber taking the place of the time in the mental hospital.[/SPOILER]

Is it just me, or would it have been helpful for the recap to be another minute or two before jumping into the premiere? I realize there's a lot of out there stuff that happened in the previous few seasons so it'd be hard to recap everything, but going back to this after so long it was a little hard to keep any of the details straight. A decent premiere I guess, but I have to admit it's a little difficult for me to have any attachment to the third or fourth iteration of the same characters. I mean, do I really care if Olivia is gone if it isn't really 'our' Olivia that we've watched for 4 years? I don't know... maybe I'll rewatch the last couple episodes from last season at some point before watching next week's episode and see if that helps me enjoy it any better. I really hope this big endgame plan that they're building up to isn't just something as obvious as them building a time machine to come back to the present though.

Happy to do it, after all of the great "Fringe" stuff you've shared!

Peter has been "our" Peter from the beginning of the series to now. He's about the only one. Olivia is "our" Olivia, in the sense that she acquired "our" Olivia's memories. I do wish they'd have found a way to make Walter and Astrid "our" Walter and Astrid. There was a lot lost there.

I don't see them going back in time as it wouldn't defeat the Observers.


September had a plan. He has looked at the futures and in every one Olivia had to "die". But... he never verbalized what happens after that. His end game was to save humanity from what he knew was coming. He has gone through a lot of trouble based on what he knows to make that happen. We don't know the course yet, but that's what I expect to see.
