Lower Left of the paper - "Stock market remains closed- 21 days and counting"

Richie said...

That was a beautiful overlook of NYC...

And I can't WAIT for someone to bring up the fact that Obama is president in the "perfect world" (so to speak). I have no problems with stuff like that... but I know people...

macwhiz said...

"Perfect" world?

I'm not sure I'd describe a world where the Obamas are moving into the new White House as "perfect." What happened to the old one? And why does Barack look so grey at the temples?

At the top left, a picture of Teddy Kennedy with the caption "Former Pres. Kennedy to Address UN" -- okay, so when did he serve?

Melissa (from Idaho) said...

I thought it was pretty awesome to have the shot of the Twin Towers. Look at the top left corner of the Post (above the thing about the stock market) Am I losing it or does it say, "Former Pres Kennedy to address UN"

ICEMAN said...

Perfect world? far from it- there ALWAYS room for improvement- its just different then are's

Viktor Lassitude said...

The White House and perhaps the NYSE did not escape the 911 attacks - obviously the WTC (Massive Dynamic) did. The last scene was absolutely chilling.

Anonymous said...

Could former Pres. Kennedy be referring to John F.? As this is an alternate reality, he may still be alive. Interesting.

Hey, Did anyone catch the glyphs tonight? Sadly I missed some. All I got was GRA...

That last scene was mind blowing. I wonder how relatives of lost loved ones reacted. I was there when they fell and after that scene I was standing there again a few blocks from the tradgedy. Awesome.

Trev said...

Len Bias wins MVP. Ha.

I like the reference but Len Bias would be around 45 today if he hadn't died in 1986.

bunkerbuster218 said...

"...all I got was GRA."
That was all I got.
Maybe it was GRAVE
for Peter's grave.

Garret said...

it could of been GRAB, referring to Walter grabbing peter out of the alternate world...but Grave makes sence too

Cynthia said...

That final shot reminded me of the end of Planet of the Apes where you see the Statue of Liberty half buried in the sand. I froze on it to see if there wasn't even more that I was missing. Fringe is so good at hiding things in plain site.

Very chilling.

Anonymous said...

It was grave :)

Did anyone else notice that the date on the paper is May 12,2009. I thought that was pretty cool.

Dave said...

Nice to see that Bell prefers the Post over the Times.

When I saw the newspaper, I had to pause to take a look at what it said. This parallel universe has some interesting things going on.

Where is the other William Bell?

Andrew said...

Wow, this last scene was pretty amazing. I can't wait to see more of Bell's alternate reality...

tallone said...

This was a surprising last shot.Very surprising to see WTC still up.The picture looks like Ted Kennedy.

desi said...

I was shocked when I saw the Twin Towers still standing,I am sure we will get lots of reaction to it, the left hand corner has JFK as former Pres. so he was still alive, the episode was great, can't wait for next Season.

The post was dated May 12, 09. Why would the Obamas be moving in to the white house in may?

The post only cost 25 cents in this alternate reality. Wonder what the gas prices look like? lol

DarthQ said...

Ted Kennedy? lol in an alternate universe where the WTC still existed, it would have to be JFK. He looks like "Ted Kennedy" because if he was still alive he's be fat with gray hair as well.

Mandy said...

It's absolutely JFK. If you look at the HQ cap, you can see it's originally a 60s photo of John and they just altered his hair from brown to white.

And my guess as to why the Obamas are moving into the NEW White House in May is because it wasn't ready by January if it had to be rebuilt.

A universe without Bush? Oh, imagine the possibilities.

jamriman said...

Mandy those are great observations. Does anybody else think JJ Abrams is going a bit too far with alternate realities? It's in Lost and Star Trek also.

groo said...

Wow, that Len Bias article in the corner is great. He would probably be the oldest in the NBA though, about 44?

Rjoh said...

Alternate realities were explored in Stargate SG-1 also. Also scientists have published papers about the possibility of alternate realities. So I can see exploring it on Fringe.

Anonymous said...

Someone questioned where the other William Bell is- what if Walter Bishop & William Bell are the same person in altering realities?

wagonmaker said...

They are moving into the new White House because the old one was hit on 9/11 in that reality, just as the NY Stock Exchange was hit instead of the Twin Towers. And the picture is JFK's face, not Teddy's.

wagonmaker said...

On the other hand, if it was only 21 days that the stock exchange is closed, it can't be that it was hit when the White House was hit...

Scott said...

Does Obama have 2 boys in the photo? It doesn't look like Sasha and Malia to me.

jamriman said...

Was the truck driver from the alternate reality?

Anonymous said...

Wow. lots of reaction to these. Yea. i kept wondering why it was the NEW white house.

aMUSiC said...

Also notice that the article says stock marketS . So we could assume there's some crisis, or some global scheme.. not just Wall Street. So It doesn't seem like any stock market got hit. And assuming that the white house was hit, or that the 9/11 incident ever happened in the alternate reality is assuming too much =)

For one, I don't think it would take them 9 years to rebuild the white house =P And what strikes me a bit as fishy is the subtitle.. that Michele has a new Interior Designer!

From the look of it it seems that the altenrate reality might be a better world altogether.

Dinho said...

In last weeks episode Olivia had a deja vu (the alternate reality?) in which it seemed the city was under attack...perhaps the attacks took place at a later date...

Appu Raja said...

Jones will be back from any other alternate reality into this one.

tallone said...

The official word is from Pinkner is it's JFK as posted elsewhere here on the site. Oh well. Those Kennedys like so much alike.

Splinter Cell said...

It could take 8 years to rebuild the White House. So it is possible that in that universe the White House was hit on 9/11.

However, they wouldn't close the financial markets to move into new offices after an attack that happened 8 years ago.

The stock market has only been closed 21 days. So the recession is probably worse in that universe than it is in ours.

It's probably closed

A. to prevent people from taking all of their cash out, causing a further slide.

or

B. the market has completely crashed altogether.

Betynha said...

Guys, I'm shocked with this episode! Awesome job!

I don't believe Mr. Jones will be back... I guess he gave us a great amount of happiness with his 'kind words'.

Actually, my great question: Will Peter know he is from another reality? When? And if so, How he's going to react? And once he has some memories from his childhood, but it seems he can't just recall other parts of it, like he never lived those days before so... could Walter had taken him from AR when he was just born or just before he got ill, managing to cure him before he'd probably get worse?

Well, this ep answered a lot, but I had more questions than before... xD~
Well, I'm still in shock with the last scene. Can't wait for the next season.

Jon said...

WOW!!! I believe Mr. Jones might get back in Season 2 because Olivia shot him twice and he didn't die... Plus he told Olivia that he didn't what he was turning into but one thing was that he was getting stronger...
My boyfriend believes that the White House in the alternate reality got hit during 9/11

Anonymous said...

on the elevator i thought i saw the floors jump from 14 to 12. Was there a 13th floor?

Anonymous said...

Anybody else think we'll see two Walter's in this season. Remember, he did see another version of himself in the asylum. Someone mentioned Bell and Bishop being the same, but I doubt it.

ICEMAN said...

go into any builing with over 14 floors- all buildings are missing the 13th floor- atleast all the builindg's ive been into

Anonymous said...

Didn't Peter Bishop die in a car that got into the water, where he imagined the observer took him out? Could be that he was picked up out of this or any other reality after that? His 'real world' body would be in the grave.Which would mean Walter has visited the other side before in person.
Also, it could explain why Peter is smarter, it seems the other reality is more advanced (hence the power of Bells company by using new technologies)

And was Bell Leonard Nimoy, Spock?

Greetings from Holland, and to the creators of Fringe (i know you are all reading this): Please restart the Galactica- and Stargateseries as well, you're doing great!

tallone said...

Your on to something Anon with Peter...he could be from the other reality.

dsr2010 said...

The 13th floor jump was a reference to the little known movie of the same name which is about alternate realities.

Ivan said...

Didn't anyone read the tombstone. It said "Peter Bishop". Obviously it means he died then. Walter probably took Peter from the other reality and build the plugging device so the Walter from the other reality couldn't take him away.

The date (which I think it was 1985) could show us when William Bell and Walter Bishop were together...but I have no idea how that is useful.

SEASON 2! SEASON 2!

ICENAB said...

im pretty sure theres more than 1 alternate reality, cus in an explanation they said for every choice u make theres a new reality where u went with the opposite of that decision. But that could be right; well atleast for temppraril so when walter was running back with Peter the other walter didnt come through and screw everything up

Anonymous said...

I'm guessing that Peter died in this reality (tombstone-1985) and Walter brought the Peter from the alternate reality here to "replace" him, possibly for his wife? Maybe he finished the gear for travel to the alternate reality for that reason

tallone said...

I think so Anon...Peter is from another place. Especially since he has a tombstone in the current realty.

teniba said...

come on why actually belives that William bell prefers the NY Post? No the Post like Fox are owned by Murdoch that is why you always have fox news and ny post as media source ina tv series on fox... unless that series is about liberal judge who reads the newyorker

Michely said...

I love to read all these comments that were posted last year! compare them to what we have seen in season two. some people were right on the money...I love this show and im so glad for blogs!

bob said...

yeah late I know. but does anyone know the name of the book in Bell's office season 1 last episode? its on the desk.
