Fringe Seasons 1-5: Saddest Moments

Deep breaths everyone.

Today is the last day we will watch a NEW episode of Fringe. We’ve laughed…we’ve cried…and then, we’ve cried to the point where we begin to hyperventilate. We have become attached to these flawed, yet heroic characters, celebrating their triumphs and taking part in their pain. And there have been some profoundly brokenhearted scenes. Let’s take a look back at these moments and appreciate the strength the characters possess to have lived and grown from these tribulations.

  • Walter returns to St. Claire to help solve a case

  • Nick Lane asks Olive to stop him from hurting others

  • Young Olivia is curled up in the corner afraid

  • Olivia confronts Walter in the diner about his experiments with children

  • Walter visits Peter’s grave

  • Walter is willing to sacrifice himself to stop the creature and Peter fears losing his father

  • Peter attempts to comfort Olivia, clearly showing that he cares for her more than a partner or a friend would, but she fails to notice because she is still grieving John Scott

Season 2

  • “I didn’t have the will to give up searching for this perfect little soul that we made. Out here for all these years, fighting for these people, defending them. And at the moment she needed her father to protect her, I couldn’t.”

  • Peter and Olivia lose their daughter AGAIN

  • Peter sees Etta’s last thoughts

  • The birthday video

  • Peter accepts Etta’s physical death and embraces her life that continues on in him and his wife
