"Fringe" on Fox HD - Page 204

What character was this Kristin Kreuk?
post #6092 of 6444
Kristin Kreuk was Lana Lang in Smallville, and she stars in the new CW show "Beauty and the Beast." She's never been in Fringe. My point was that I sometimes watch bad shows just to see pretty faces. If not for that phenomenon, I think the CW would have 10 total viewers. OK, that's probably an exaggeration. Probably 5.

If it weren't for K.K. "Beauty and the Beast" would have zero viewers smile.gif
She also appeared in four episodes of "Chuck" in 2010...

You do understand, don't you, that Olivia has no memory anymore of being raised by Nina... She has no more reason to react emotionally than Peter... who you will note also did not react much to Nina's death. Only Walter, in this reality, still has emotional ties to Nina... so it only makes sense for Walter to react.

As the other posters have explained, there is a canon explanation for this.

On a more practical note, the show doesn't really have the time or budget to fixate on the death of a character like Nina anymore. You can almost make that argument for the death of Etta as well.

As well as the absence of Broyles for much of the season, although I assume we'll see him at least once more.

Where are we with this season? -- are we still waiting on the final three to air, or did I somehow miss one? Thanks!
post #6104 of 6444
Do we know when they'll air?

Don't want to miss them.

Yeah.... it also means that, when this is over, I'm going to have to go back and fracking watch the entire series over again to catch all this stuff. :-)

if they somehow manage to "reset" the universe(s), maybe we're gonna see some of the "lost" characters come back from the grave in the end? just a thought... Broyles, Nina, even Lee?... I kinda miss Seth Gabel this season.


On another note, how come the observers need cars when they can teleport themselves whenever/wherever they want?

I've wondered that as well....perhaps it has to do with having - or knowing/sensing - when a certain situation is going to happen & they teleport to that ("Observer Spidey Sense" coupled with their tech, if you will). If they need to make a run to the store or something wink.gif, they can & will just walk/drive. Their omniscience/omnipresence seems to me as this season has progressed to be at least a partial ruse.

Also, when Etta tortured the Loyalist earlier this season, it was with older Observer tech that was designed to help prep them to teleport, so maybe willy-nilly teleportation is not possible & is used only for certain situations.

Not sure if they are going to cover this, although we still have not been given the promised explanation as to there being no female Observers....so one or both may come up in the next 3 hours. My guess is Donald/September is going to be source of at least some answers coming up.
post #6109 of 6444
to the question "why is Walter crazy?" I assumed that the devastating mind read early in the season that wiped the plan from his memory is to blame...

To be fair... another answer to your question could be... who says they "need" cars? Maybe they just like them.

I like lots of things that I don't need... maybe Observers like cars for some reason. If nothing else, it allows them to multitask while going somewhere. I mean, they can teleport but then what? Just stand in place while thinking? Riding in a car is slower than teleporting, but if they aren't in a hurry it allows them to sit and do other things while riding.
post #6111 of 6444
There's probably lots to nitpick... but while we wait for the final 3 to air... I think the thing bothering me most at the moment is how long they have been able to camp in Walter's old lab. Seems like once the Observers knew Walter as back, they would make sure he wasn't hiding out in his old lab... I know they checked there once... but they didn't leave any security or anything... seems kind of short-sighted for a group seemingly always on the lookout for the "rebels"...
post #6112 of 6444
The obvious reason for Walter and crew not having been found in the Harvard lab is that it's where a lot of the show has been filmed for the last 5 years. It's where all the lights are hung that allow for easy setup for those scenes. I almost posted that I admired them for taking the story completely out of that familiar set, but in the very next episode they were back "home." As illogical and dangerous as it is for them to have amber glowing like the sun as they extricate the Beta tapes, it does make for several "golden hour" shots in almost every episode. biggrin.gif

The more likely answer is that there are some limits to their teleportation ability.

Something along the line that the implant has to recharge or teleportation is harmful to them and they only do it when they have to.

Or that they can only teleport to places that at least one of a group teleporting has actually already visited.

...or they can only teleport over short distances.
post #6116 of 6444
....or they're not teleporting at all. It only looks like they're teleporting when in reality they're moving around in time and reappearing when time catches up. Ta da !!! biggrin.gif

Hey, now that's some impressive lateral thinking there Jim! Works for me...

I can't tell if this is a joke or not.   This is a joke, right?

I'm not sure how that would work. Explain please.
