First Time Viewer Reactions: Fringe 3×21 “The Last Sam Weiss”

Fringe Season 3 Cover

Guess what folks! All that time we spent pining over Peter and Olivia was actually necessary. These two need to be together for the sake of the world. We already knew Peter is the only one who can activate and deactivate the doomsday machine, but we didn’t know Olivia is the crowbar. They are like peanut butter & jelly. They fit together. Now, let’s talk about that ending. WTF! Peter’s moments with Liv flash in front of him and then poof! He’s in the year 2021. What? Did anyone else’s heart skip a beat during the montage? Montages aren’t usually a sign of good things to come so I was nervous about Peter’s future.

  • Peter is in the hospital. sad Astrid is such a great caretaker, looking after her favorite scientist.

  • So…if Sam Weiss is not the first Sam Weiss then how many are there? Dang, they all devoted their lives to this machine. I sometimes have trouble devoting 2 hours to a project. Olivia: “You’re a dedicated bunch.”
  • Sam: “The timeline is not right. Maybe this is a cosmic hiccup.” WTF?! Huh? What do you mean the timeline is not right? Sam: “Generation of knowledge have been bestowed on me. But no one said anything about the other side turning on the machine first.” Olivia: “Okay, Sam, I’m gonna make this really easy for you. I’m armed and I want you to take me to the key now.” LMAO That’s my girl!laughinglaughing
  • Walter is a modern day Benjamin Franklin.


  • Peter is awake!!! Yay. He’s going to be okay. WHY DOES HE THINK IT’S OKAY TO DISCONNECT HIMSELF FROM THE MACHINES? Those machines are measuring your vitals, buddy! While I disapprove his unsupervised leave from the hospital, I do support the return of the Peacoat.


  • Olivia: “Olivia Dunham, FBI.”  Sam: “Sam Weiss. Patron member since ’82.” rolling on the floorrolling on the floorrolling on the floor

  • Yes, they figured it out! The machine on the other side is on Liberty Island. Now, your mission is to stop evil Walternate.
  • OH SNAP!! It’s Olivia in the picture!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She’s the crowbar.surprisesurprise
