First Time Viewer Reactions: Fringe 3×19 “Lysergic Acid Diethylamide”

Fringe Season 3 Cover“This episode is going to be special.” That was my first thought when I read the title. After all his talk about taking hallucinogens as a young scientist, we finally get to see Walter throw an LSD party. The entire team (minus Astrid) take the laced sugar cube to enter Olivia’s mind and rescue her. It’s like an episode of The Magic School Bus and Walter is Ms. Frizzle.  Also, SPOILER ALERT Peter gets Olivia back!! HIGH FIVE EVERYONE.


  • I would actually watch a show that was just Bell and Walter. Their friendship is hilarious.

  • Oh no Olivia!!sadsadsad She’s having a seizure.
  • Peter to the ER doctor: “She’s my girlfriend.” Walter: “He’s my partner.” HA! Yeah, try explaining that to the doctors.
  • Whoa, they’re gonna enter Olivia’s mind. I would be frightened to do that. It’s probably super badass like the rest of her and any wrong step would mean a roundhouse kick by her medulla oblongata.

  • I don’t like this version of Ms. Terminator. She tried to kill Walter. no talking NOT NICE.
  • They are cartoons! surprise

  • Zombies? Really??!! I doubt there would be zombies in Olivia’s mind.
  • Bell to Walter: “Now, you possess the wisdom of humility. We didn’t back then. The decisions you make will be the right ones. The direction you choose to take will be just.” Walter is such a beautiful character trying to make amends for what he has done. THIS IS WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THE SHOW.big hug
  • WTF! Who would cut the fuel gauge? Who is this guy?!? Walter!!!!! surpriseNOOO!

  • Now, Broyles sees cartoons. He’s like Giselle in Enchanted talking to the birds.

  • Peter: “She told me that the last time she remembered feeling that way was the day before she met you and Walter at the Cortexiphan Trials. I think she’s down there somewhere. In that house, on that day. Hiding out.” That’s right, Peter! You go find your soulmate. You’re the only one who knows where she is!
  • YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He found her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! partylove struck THEY ARE SO BEAUTIFUL TOGETHER! Wait…HUH?! It’s not her? GAH!! It’s little Olivia.surprise

  • Oh no, Peter jumped in front of the car to save Olivia. Peter: “I lost her.” broken heart Somebody hold me.cryingcrying

  • Baby Olivia is now adult Olivia. That’s right, Liv, stand up to them! Bell: “You are your own worst enemy, Olivia. You took the opportunity to let your fears overwhelm you, but you just fought back. In the end, you are as strong as Walter and I always believed you were.” Well, just go ahead and hit me with another tidal wave of emotions.

  • Bell: “Tell Walter that I knew the dog wouldn’t hunt.” HUH?!confused
  • She’s awake!! And Peter is so relieved. Look at his face! IT SHOULD BE ILLEGAL FOR A COUPLE TO BE THIS CUTE!!!!

  • Olivia drew Mr. X. “Who is this guy?” Olivia: “Yeah, I don’t know. I haven’t seen him before. But I think that he’s the man who’s gonna kill me.” WTF?! surprisesurprisesurprisesurpriseYou just said that all nonchalant. WTF. What is wrong with you?! Yeah, go ahead and eat your toast like it’s nothing. GAH, shouldn’t we talk about this?!?! I mean how is there going to be Polivia if  there is no Olivia. That would just be P, and that would be sad.

  1. Mary, you have no idea how much i miss your first time viewer reactions. I agree with you about the Peter hottness overload in this ep …. peacoat, collar up and raybans = a killer Peter combo! Oh how i missed reading these and having Olivia call Peter ‘Boo’….. POlivia are the best OTP there is. Thanks for making me laugh…and cry at the same time.
