Fringe 3.3 : The Plateau
Since I am an eastern time viewer, I’m gonna try and be a good lil blogger and attempt to not spoil anything. So here are a few pics from tonight’s episode with possible spoiler info after. Don’t scroll to the paragraphs below unless you want to be spoiled!:
I find it very considerate when a victim brings her own flowers to the scene. It`s a good thing, dont you think?
Ok, so that should be enough screen space that if you are reading this now, its probably not by accident so its ‘make with the commentary’ time!
‘The Plateau’ is the third episode of the third season of FRINGE, the title referring to the potential level of Fauxlivia’s memory assimilation into the Walternate Universe (sexy red titles FTW!) . So Fauxlivia is back in the saddle, investigating cases of the Fringe Division.
Her first one is that of a series of irregular events that lead to the deaths of 3 people. Timing and apparently ball point pens rarely seen in this universe seem to be everything as the team determines the cause of the ‘coincidental’accidents. Their trail leads them to a man with a very low IQ who undergoes drug trials (voluntarily for once!) to bump up his smarts only to get none too happy when the drugs are to be discontinued, leaving him with his previous IQ of 56. So he sets events in motion to disappear those in charge so he can keep his newly amped up noodle. Meanwhile, Walternate shares his strategic plan with Broyles, and Olivia is plagued by visions that along with her forgetting a few things (like a very important oxygen protocol) lead her to doubt her belonging to the Walternate Universe.
It doesnt further the bigger picture plot along too terribly much, but at least we get to see what our real Liv is up to (no more drugs or isolation chambers!), we get a decent ‘well now there is a clever way to kill people’ episode and bob’s your uncle. The really cool stuff this week are the details. I loved the ‘War of Aruba’ vet beggar. The statue of liberty is REALLY REALLY copper in this world. Gotta say, I like the green oxidation better. But the coolest one? The Glyphs!
Behold the awesome!
The Glyphs code in this espisode spell out BREACH, as in the inadvertent breach of protocol saved Olivia’s life. Ooooh geekgasm!
