Fringe 1×07 “In Which We Meet Mr. Jones”: Reactions from a First Time Viewer

Lots happened in episode 7. Mr. Jones, a criminal in a German prison with ties to the pattern, is introduced, Peter endures a painful synaptic transfer procedure thingy for Olivia day dreaming, and Olivia once again demonstrates how awesome she is. She convinces Mr. Jones to see her, and keeps her calm when she encounters his menacing face. She is one powerful chica! Episode 7 also introduced Lucas Vogel phbbbbt, played by Billy Burke of Twilight fame. I have nothing against Burke, but it was quite unpleasant to see his character get all chummy with Olivia. I don’t want Vogel. I want Peter and Olivia together!  crying
  • Someone call the Fringe Division team, Mitchell Loeb is feeling funky.
  • What the what?!?! What is that thing in Loeb’s chest? I hope it’s a friendly parasite, but I doubt it.
  • Smile Broyles, Walter just cracked a joke. Will I ever see Broyles act silly?
  • Should Loeb’s chest be exposed like that? I mean dust and other stuff could fall in.
  • OH SNAP!!! The parasite moved. surprise
  • AWWWW! Walter just told Peter he may have finally found his true calling – “Working with me.” Yay for father/son bonding. big grin
  • Walter: “Your friend thinks it might be a code.” Olivia looks at Peter, and he responds, “The other one.” HEHEHE. Fangirling right now. Olivia looked at Peter. day dreamingday dreaming
  • Now, Olivia is explaining what is going on to Peter. Too cute. day dreaming
  • Peter, I saw that! I saw your eyes linger on Olivia. winkingwinkingapplause
  • David Robert Jones. Is he related to Davy Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean?
  • Broyles: “You got superpower you aren’t telling me about?” Olivia: “Maybe.” Foreshadowing? thinking
  • Broyles: “You’re not really going to Germany.” Olivia: “Yeah, I’m really going.” Broyles: “Let me save you the trip, Dunham. You’re not getting in.” Olivia: “We don’t know each other well enough for you to say something like that to me.” Daaaaaang, Liv. You are hardcore. Love it. applauseapplauseapplauseapplause
  • What is Bella’s father doing on this show?! And why is she picking up Olivia at Frankfurt airport? raised eyebrows
  • She speaks German too?! Olivia’s coolness level clearly has no limit.
  • HAHA Peter in his crappy station wagon again.
  • OH NO! Joseph Smith just got shot in the head. Walter can still interrogate him though, right?
  • Astrid is a wonderful assistant. She knows what Walter is gonna say before he says it.
  • HAHA Walter just took a picture of Peter next to Smith’s head resembling Peter’s bare bottom as a baby. laughing
  • Oh Boy. Peter just figured out that Walter experimented with him as a child, and he is p.o.’d.  I want to know more about these experiments.
  • Noooooooo! Bella’s dad is with Olivia and they are getting too close. I will be very angry if they kiss. Way to go Peter for cockblocking. applausewhew!
  • Aw, Peter is enduring so much pain just for Olivia.nail bitingworried
  • Walter to Astrid: “Stick this in his chest.” Whaaat? That is a huge needle!
  • David Robert Jones: “Perhaps the same people responsible for bringing us together. What if someone wanted information from the both of us? You see? Perhaps they’ve orchestrated all of this. What if you and I – both of us, at this very moment, were being manipulated.” Oh snap! Who is “they”? So ominous!
  •  Peter to Walter: “Daddy?” broken heartbroken heart
  • “Where does the gentleman live?” That’s a creepy question.
  • Olivia to Mr. Jones: “My phone doesn’t get the best reception in prison isolation cells.” HAHA That needs to be a commercial. Someone get on that.
  • That’s your son, Walter! He can’t handle anymore. I don't want to seeI don't want to see
  • Get your hands off of Olivia!
  • “Little Hill!”
  • Mr. Jones just gave Liv the antidote to save Loeb’s life and she remembered all of that. Impressive. Those concentration games she played as a kid are paying off.
  • Way to go team! You save another person’s life.
  • Broyles to Olivia: “Because your dissatisfaction is what makes you so damn good. Someone I’m proud to say I work with.” So proud of her. applauseapplause
  • I knew Loeb was lying! I don’t like him.

What do you think Fringe fans? Do you like the gifs? I decided to try something new. Let me know in the comments if you liked them or hated them.

  1. I enjoyed the gifs. Especially the last one. As someone who’s watched Fringe since the beginning (and is constantly forcing it on others – which they eventually thank me for), I like seeing your first time reactions.

  2. I agree with Kathryn. It’s refreshing to see someone willingly pick up he series for a change instead of me making someone else watch it. And the first time reactions are the best. I can barely hold in my own excitement about what’s next for you, AKA: the rest of the series. How I would love to watch the entire show again with new eyes. 🙂

    Hi Mary- Another great rookie recap only better because I LOVED the gifs!!!!!! They totally help in expressing the emotional roller coaster that Fringe puts us on!!! Can’t wait for Thursday!!!

  4. Thanks Mary for the recap, funny as usual, the gifts are funny too. I love your Peter/Olivia remarks, they are quite hilarious. I wish I’ll have your talent

  5. This is one of my favorites from season one. I love when Peter said, “Daddy?” I am such a sucker for Peter and Walter bonding. I am a huge Peter/Oliva fan, but I am equally a fan of the Peter/Walter relationship. In some ways, it’s that relationship that is the true love story on this show. Not that Peter and Olivia don’t have an epic love story, because they soooo do.

  6. I have to agree, I love the gifs. You are doing a great job, keep it up! I’m so excited for you see what’s in store! The fangirl in me can hardly contain her excitement. 🙂
