This week’s episode of “Fringe” is called “6B” and it centers on a spooky apartment building where everyone is dropping like flies — literally. The Fringe team is called to investigate a group of deaths and they discover an unsuspecting cause of the phenomenon.

Check out our review…

The Players:

  • Director: Thomas Yatsko
  • Writers: Glen Whitman & Robert Chiappetta
  • Cast: Joshua Jackson, Anna Torv, John Noble, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole, Blair Brown

Episode Title: “6B”

Mysterious deaths occur at an apartment complex where multiple people have jumped from the top of a building. The Fringe team is called in and they realize that there’s a soft spot in this world and the alternate dimension that’s caused by a grieving widow and widower.

The Good:

  • Walter’s Rage: Walter was upset the majority of the episode because he thought he’d have to go to extremes (use amber) to close the vortex to the other dimension. When he’s upset he comes across as funny and not dangerous and intimidating. “Is it second guess everything Walter says day and someone forgot to tell me?” Oh, Walter!
  • The Tear in Universes: I found the power of love to be an interesting catalyst for the tear in the dimensions. There’s no spooky scientist, or evil geek who caused it, just two people mourning their spouses.
  • Peter and Olivia: We finally got a breakthrough! Olivia acknowledged that she was keeping her and Peter apart not Fauxlivia and the duo decided to get it on. Not to sound like a perv, but why did Fauxlivia and Peter get a semi-love scene and the real Olivia didn’t?

The Bad:

  • Peter and Olivia: You’re probably asking yourself why these two are under the good and bad column, so let me explain. It’s great that they had a breakthrough in their relationship but unfortunately we all know that they’re going to fall flat on their faces by the end of the season. As soon as Fauxlivia’s belly starts to show Peter is going to get the shock of a lifetime, and our Olivia (who’s learning to trust him again) will be screwed! It’s a train wreck waiting to happen.


Last night’s “Fringe” was a lovey, dovey emotional episode that centered on Peter and Olivia’s relationship and if that’s your favorite part of the show, you probably loved every minute of it!

Rating: 8.5/10
