First Time Viewer Reactions: Fringe 3×18 “Bloodline”

Fringe Season 3 Cover

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!!

  • 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.
