Fringe 1×16 “Unleashed”: Reactions from a First Time Viewer

Walter saves the day!!! As much as I love seeing Olivia kick butt, it was a pleasant surprise to see Walter take action and redeem himself. He was not directly responsible for creating the episode’s monster but like other cases, his experiments have helped create the Fringe-y situations. I’m certain Walter’s past will continue to reveal dark secrets and this worries me because I don’t want to see papa Bishop as the villain. sadsadsad I just want funny, crazy Walter…not “I conduct experiments that will hurt people” Walter. Yeah, I am concerned. worriedworriedworried

  • Olivia is reading to Ella in bed. Call the police…too much cuteness. I want an aunt like Liv!
  • Phone rings and it’s Peter. Oh hell no! Peter wants to talk to Rachel? frustratedfrustrated Why?! Aw, Olivia is jealous. What are you doing, Peter? You are talking with the wrong sister!angryangry

  1. I love Peter’s grin after Olivia says his friendship with Rachel doesn’t bother her. Great recap.

  2. That song will forever bring back memories of that scene for me. Polivia ftw! Oh and awesome recap as usual. The gifs really steal the show for me, so to speak.

  3. That was Kirk’s real-life wife playing his tv wife!
