Fringe Episode 108: Green, Green, Green, Red

      Email Post       11/21/2008 01:53:00 AM      



The recurring theme of the Green and Red dots has finally paid off in "The Equation". The flashing Green, Green, Green, Red light pattens are used by the bad guys (Pattern makers?) to put people into a hypnagogic trance.

Green and red dots have been appearing since the very first episode. First, on the Kayak in Olivia's dream sequence in Pilot, then in The Arrival, inside the binoculars of The Observer, and later on the hat of John Mosley.

It explains why we empty our bank accounts at Christmas time, and gorge on Mexican and Italian food ;-)

I have an idea that the light sequence is Fibonacci related. I'm not sure how to figure it,but just a hunch.

If you look closely at the horses in the school house once Olivia enters, the colors are all red and green. Interesting? :-)

In the scene when Joanne Osler disappears, She presses the button on the remote she is carrying and the lights in the hall start blinking red and green, just like when Walter hypnotized Peter. Also I think we may have seen the red and green lights flashing before. I'll have to check.

I thought it was funny that they mentioned Walter's past job of trying to hypnotize people into buying products. It's exactly what Christmas is now in the real world.

There is also been extensive research on the effects color play into our appetite. Red and green are at the top of the list. Olive Garden is actually a concept that is visually based on the result of such research.

Actually, in morse code green-green-green-red is dot-dot-dot-dash, it is a recurring theme elsewhere as well
(Walter plays the piano at one point, he plays the opening to Beethoven's 5th, the "duh-duh-duh-duuuuuh" one.)

In morse code this is the letter 'V', maybe that has to do with something...who knows? But I think that is the definite connection to it.

They also have the red & green lights on the "telephone" devices that the Observers use. You can see it in the episode "August". When the other observers "call" for another guy, who for some reason looks like a normal human, he opens his device and 4 lights go off, green, green, green, red.

V = 5 in Roman Numerals -> link to Beethoven's 5th, perhaps? =)
