First Time Viewer Reactions: Fringe 3×18 “Bloodline”
Full disclosure. This was a very difficult episode for me. I know some folks love the birth scene because Lincoln declared his love but I couldn’t see past the fact that AltLivia was having Peter’s child. The whole “I’m having a baby with another man who is in relationship with another woman” made it a challenge to focus on anything else. However, it was heart warming to see Lincoln’s role in all of this. He knew AltLivia had been with another man but he was still stayed by her side. He still loved her which is why I’m rooting for them.
- It’s Mama Dunham! Okay, I don’t like this universe. Rachel and Ella died in childbirth and there’s a chance this Olivia may have VPE.
- Awww, Lincoln is worried about his crush Altlivia. He’s like a second mom wanting to know where she is at all times. Put a tracker on her. It’s easier. GAH!! It’s the Observer!!
- Ah, sneak attack!
- Charlie went on a date with bug girl!!! Charlie: “Just admit you have a thing for Liv.” Yeah, he does.
- AltLivia has been kidnapped!! OH EM GEE. How many times does Anna Torv have to be kidnapped and prodded with needles?! “She’s a fighter, like they said.” YES. SHE. IS. No one can mess with Olivia in any universe.
- They just injected her belly! OH SNAP! It’s Peter’s baby on the monitor!
- It’s Robot Astrid with her statistics! How I wish I had her statistical capabilities!
- It’s Henry!!!!!
- Oh, crap. They don’t know about Henry. Don’t reveal too much, H!
- Oh this is not good. AltLivia does have VPE.
- Congrats Lincoln. You are now level “übersecret.” He knows about the baby. As much as I dislike Walternate, I admire his concern for the safety of his grandchild.
- Dang AltLivia, your belly grew!!!! What’s phase two? C-section? She’s crying. THIS IS NOT COOL.
- Pregnancy can’t stop this girl! WTF…Her stomach is all weird! That baby is gonna pop out.
- This baby is going to be born NOW! Lincoln: “It’s you and me.” “I love you.” He’s not holding anything back. Let out your feelings, bro.
- They both made it! Peter has a son. DAMNIT ALTLIVIA! He is supposed to have a child with OUR OLIVIA! SO MANY CONFLICTED EMOTIONS!!! I’m happy they survived but OUR OLIVIA should have been the one having Peter’s baby!
- Why does the baby have to be so cute?! CONFLICTED EMOTIONS!!
- It’s the nurse!! Oh snap!! Brandon received the blood sample. WALTERNATE ORCHESTRATED ALL OF THIS!!!! YOU ARE AN EVIL EVIL EVIL EVIL MAN!!!!!! What is his plan?!?!
AltLivia is a mother. She’s a mom…to Peter’s baby. Sorry, I had to say that again because I’m still getting over the shock. GAH! What did you think Fringies? Is it weird to see a woman who is not Olive have Peter’s child? Share your comments below.
