Fringe 1×09 “The Dreamscape”: Reactions from a First Time Viewer

I feel like every Fringe post I write ends up discussing how badass Olivia acts. It’s so easy though to discuss that topic, because she shines in every episode. “The Dreamscape” started off with a mediocre Fring-y event. The cinematography of the fall was certainly cool, but butterflies? No one really thinks of butterflies a angry murderers, but the episode quickly unraveled to reveal a much bigger and more complex story. Olivia goes back in the tank!! surprise

  • Oh, it’s a butterfly. Don’t touch it; it’s probably toxic. Uh oh, it’s an angry butterfly. Yeah, just try to squash it…oh wait, you did. It’s still alive! Now, there are two? What?
  • DRAMATIC fall. surprisesurprise
  • He works for Massive Dynamic. I should’ve known.
  • Aw, Olivia can’t have a social life. sadsadsad
  • AH! It’s Mr. Boring Face in the crowd looking at the crime scene. surprisesurprise
  • Ms. Terminator keeps offering Olivia a job. Take the girl out to dinner first, before you continue courting her.
  • HAHA. “Oceanic Air” is on the airplane ticket. Lost shout out. winking

  • Uh oh. Tess is being abused.
  • Someone was trying kill Mark Young.
  • Repressed memory therapy. Oh yeah, I bet that’s like getting a massage.
  • Olivia don’t go back in that tank! Love that shot of her in all black at the top of the staircase. Like a boss!
  • Oh boy, here we go again.
  • Olivia, when Walter says that the science he is doing is “pushing the boundaries,” I think that is your cue to stop. nail bitingnail bitingtime outI don't want to see
  • A Bible? Is he conducting an exorcism? Is he going to pray?
  • So many dark colors in this episode!
  • Walter: “I thought it appropriate to pray you don’t get electrocuted.” Olivia: “Praise the Lord.” Walter: “Amen” REWIND! REWIND AGAIN! OH MY GOSH! THIS IS SO INTENSE!! Had to watch three times. SO AMAZINGLY WELL WRITTEN!!!!!

  • She is in all black again. I am loving this episode.

  • He sees John Scott too? surprisesurprisesurprisesurprise
  • Oh no! Morales has been drugged with the same substance that killed Mark Young.
