When I was watching the game I failed to identify the bald guy on the sideline as The Observer. I thought he just must be some player's cancer stricken relative.

You think? I thought The Observer just wasn't interested in observing any AFC games. Who could blame him?

Yes, I'm from an NFC town. We see big those FOX trucks at every home game. Wonder if The Observer has ever traveled to Charlotte? We even named our newspaper after him!

I knew I had seen that guy somewhere before, and I knew he was sinister. You have to wonder about anyone standing rigid in a spiffy business suit in 19 degree weather. Thanks for placing him.

Thus far, I don't think that it's fair to characterize him as "sinister". He hasn't done anything that I can recall to help the bad guys are to hinder (or help) the investigation of "The Pattern".

Indeed. After all, his name is "The Observer" and not the "The Sinister" or "The Bad Guy".

I don't think an Eagles upset of the Giants is such a huge event that it would warrant The Observer...so the quesiton is, what else happened that day in that stadium?

Now that you mention that, if you remember, something happened a few days after that in the Hudson...

And I'm done.

10 minutes into tonight's episode, I asked myself why I was watching? I hadn't missed it the last few weeks, and was barely paying attention. Oh well, another 42 minutes free each week.

And I'm hooked.

10 minutes into tonight's episode, I asked myself why can't all shows be this good? I hadn't missed it since the season premiere, and was riveted to the screen. Oh well, another 50 minutes (not the typical 42 minutes with this show) I have to devote to great entertainment.

It's becoming the mantra for this whole series, except they never seem to ask and get answers for the important questions. "Lost" has done this for years, but "Fringe" is hardly a "Lost".

When the Loeb character says to the effect of, "you don't get it, we saved your life", my next question would be, "okay, that's great, explain it to me", but no, we don't get that, the interrogation is over, she just goes home and sleeps peacefully... get real, this show needs to come up with some real answers or I'm done with it. Walter playing with the LSD is getting stale as well.

I'd like to see this show become better than what it is so far, I think it could be, but I'm not convinced that it's going to happen.

What gets me with this, is he has to be lying. Otherwise, why go through all that ridiculous trouble to conceal your actions, inject her, blah blah blah, if you're trying to save her life, if you're just going to turn around and tell your wife to kill her?

My thoughts are pretty much the same. Walter's schtick got old more than a few episodes ago, and now they are just trying too hard (IMO) to just convolute things by having the bad guy maybe not be bad afterall, etc.

And having the whole "Don't you get it? We saved your life! You have no idea who we are or what you've gotten yourself into!" conversation that she just walks away from, and then apparently the FBI completely dismisses. Then Walter and Peter completely blow it off as well.

There's been and are too many shows out now that just want to provide more questions but no answers, and it's doesn't make for good television IMO (although I admit Lost is the best of these types of shows, and I am completely addicted to it)

Oh well...it's still good enough (barely) for me to keep watching for awhile to see where it goes. The characters have not grown on me at all, and I still cannot stand Anna Torv's wooden delivery or whatever she has going on.

LOL

That's sounding like viewers of LOST the first season.

Well, just to do a little paraphrasing and elaborate on what Keenan said above... I know LOST, LOST is a friend of mine, and 'Fringe' - you're no LOST.

yeah I wasn't insinuating that Fringe is anywhere near as good a show as Lost but c'mon, that was at least a funny part of the episode.

As far as the interrogation part, it was definitely weird that they just abruptly ended it there. I was looking for more. I was definitely looking at why Massive Dynamic wasn't involved in that episode at least.

Not too mention having a federal agent kidnapped, the unrealistic "I had her arrested at gun point after being found, cause I'm mad at her", then have the same agent just move on to another case as if she hadn't been traumatized. (she didn't even have time to wipe the patch of blood off her face.)

And what sensible person gets kidnapped, then offers their apartment up for a relative and a kid?!?

I was really hoping that the scene where she's confronted by gun point was going toward the direction of her being accused of something as a result of the kidnapping (dna found at a crime scene, for ex.) or some sort of memory lapse (nothing found at the bldg, car and gun clean, etc.) How the heck could they not have found anything - Loeb didn't know about her escaping.

Trying too hard to be like Lost - which gets a pass for being one of the 1st to use the technique of throwing out more questions before older ones get answered, as well as plot holes used to progress the mystery. (After realizing how the slug is generated, no one bothers to question who gave him a glass of water..)

Just lazy writing...

I literally said almost the exact same thing out loud at that point in the show.. It's unbelievable he didn't get asked a Single followup question beyond why were you trying to kill me....
"We didn't want to Kill You" ...
The next line from an FBI agent should have been, "That's nice, .. OK, & who's "WE" exactly?" ..., along with other questions..
At least if she started to ask, & he then decided to clam up out of "fear" of "them", or ask for a lawyer .. Then Fine, I guess, but the questions not even being asked at all was annoying ...

It was a weird episode all around for me. For the first 15 mins I was wondering if I had missed the previous episode where she gets abducted...? then some guy she had brought up on rape charges, convicted, then overturned, and now is back in the FBI in a position of power...? and he gets her arrested and in a hospital bed before her boss even knows about it...? after she's already called in backup while still at the scene...?

Oh yeah, the glass of water the sister put on the coffee table at the end, nice touch...NOT

What bothered me was that they said the large "moving" slug was an overgrown virus, and compared it to an ostrich egg(cell). From what I understood a virus is not a cell, and they don't move. Technically they aren't even alive(debatable?). An oversized bacteria would of made a "tiny" bit more sense. I don't know why that bother me, but it did for some reason.

I agree that "bacteria" would have been the more technically appropriate term, but the distinction between virus and bacteria is probably lost on the writers and most viewers, anyway.

It's still pretty gross to imagine a giant single-unit bacteria or virus that takes the form a handful-sized slug.
