Fringe 3×14 “6B”: First Time Viewer Reactions

Fringe Season 3 Cover

Deep breaths!!! If this episode is not on your top 10 list, then, well, you are an Observer. I remember falling in love with this episode the very first time I saw it and recorded these reactions, but I decided to watch it again before publishing this post and I thought it was BETTER than what I remembered. The episode is all encompassing. It has the case-of-the-week, but it still focuses on the characters. Mrs. Merchant’s story is the impetus for Olivia to accept Peter back in her life, and they finally become the couple we have been hoping and praying for. Gosh! Just writing about this episode makes me want to see it again. How can you not love “6B”? This happens…TWICE!!!!!!!

  • Adorable couple. batting eyelashesbatting eyelashes

  • Good luck?!?! Is the elevator haunted? Oh snap! surprise Time to call Fringe Division.

  1. Great recap Mary!! This was one awesome episode!! I still remember blushing, screaming and predicting that they would have a girl at the moment when Olivia leads Peter upstairs!! Thanks also for continuing to do these fringetastic reviews!!! It keeps Fringe alive!!! 🙂

  2. I miss this show and these recaps.

  3. I loved the expression on Peter’s face when Olivia walks past him, before she reaches back for his hand. WTF again?

    Thx for the recap Mary!!! ‘Who’s the cockblocker now?’ had hilarity ensue (couldn’t figure out how to upgrade LOL 😉 ). This and ‘A Better Human Being’ are my two favs & most frequently rewatched for POlivia goodness. I’m reading this after my science channel marathon weekend. It feels good to be knee deep in the Fringe-verse rather than the occasional ep here & there. Now I’m determined to finally rewatch season 5 finally when the DVD comes out in a few weeks. I’m going to watch lotsa happy episodes to brace myself for that.

    As always thank you, thank you Mary. Oh let me know if you or/and Louise got SDCC tix for VM movie or coming down for Comic Con. I would love to buy you guys a drink!

    • GAH! We would LOVE to attend SDCC!! It’s on our wish list, and one day, we will actually go. What that day happens, everyone will know because we won’t stop talking about SDCC. HAHA -M

  5. Mary I freaking love it !!!!!!!!. I laughed my head off and YES 6 “B” IS ONE OF MY FAV. EPPY, VERY HIGH ON MY LIST. I also love 3.21 .
    Yes it should be ilegal to be this beautiful and adorableness!!!!.
    Love all your SW reference, DAMN!!! I LOVE THOSE MOVIES!!!. BTW Love the pic of Dark Vader dancing LOL LOL LOL . When he said if you only knew the poder of the Dark side is from the same movie that he says LUKE I´M YOUR FATHER
