    right. I'm so used to Peter being on this side :p

    That would make the need for those two to get together even more important. Because they're supposed to have to first child of two universes.

    That somehow adds even more plausibility to the the theory.

    A 'normal' child may not have any special abilities, but a child born to a woman with latent telekinetic powers and a man from an entirely different universe ................ there's all the potential there for that child to evolve slightly differently.

    We know that Olivia has an in-built ability to step between universes. In doing so, she must be able to remove herself from her universe before putting herself in the other a nanosecond later. I would theorise that this is a very undeveloped version of the powers that the Observers have - where they can actually step outside a universe without going into another, and also step outside the timestream.

    I wonder if the Observer's name 'September' has any relevant. If he's named after a month, are the others too? Does this mean there are 12 of them? And if so, what's the significance of 12?

    Wow, so much going on in this episode.

    So Nina was really bad and working with David Robert Jones? Or were there two shape changers?

    The stuff with Peter's baby was strange. I had forgotten about all of that. So if the blue/red olivia are gone shouldn't Peter have a baby with the amber olivia? Or is the implication that the blue universe still exists?

    The Observer stuff was cool. So they are a group of scientists from the very far future who used to be humans. It's pretty clear now that Peter and Olivia's baby is the progenitor of the Observers. I agree with elgaz about Olivia's ability.

    This episode made me think about the First People and their book. I hope we get more episodes about them. That story was really cool and the guy at the bowling alley was awesome.

    There is only one shape changer. She was the "prisoner" with Olivia.

    The real Nina was the one being questioned. She honestly had not been in that "vault" for months, but it was the Fake Nina who went in there and got the drug and then dosed Olivia.

    I think the implication is that amber Olivia is blue Olivia. That there isn't another set of universes, like Peter has convinced himself has to be true.

    Wiegeabo, I agree with you that amber Olivia is blue Olivia but September telling Peter that he needed to get back to his Olivia and have babies is misleading or points to the existence of the other (blue/red) universes.

    September could just have been referring to "getting back" to the Olivia we are seeing which would mean she is the real deal and also no other universes. Also, I noticed that since amber Olivia has been getting her memories back she sounds and acts more like the blue Olivia we have seen before.

    Also, if Peter ends up using the machine what will that do? I just hope it doesn't end the show and leave us with way too many unanswered questions. hehe

    think they set it up perfectly if canceled, they can say the timelines merged. if its renewed for a final season, they will make it 3 universes and timelines and peter can get back to "his" olivia.

    yeah, i hope for 1 more season to finish everything up nice and tight instead of rush fest to a conclusion that the fans and creators dont like.

    A planned conclusion does not always turn out good. I would be optimistic. But not get to much of my hopes up

    I think the "safe bet" for a renewal may be due to the cancellation of Terra Nova. I would totally want a 5th season, even if it's shortened to 13-15 episodes. I also think a defined sense of finality would get the writers/producers to get their crap together.

    I agree,I also think that it would help its cause even further if Alcatraz got canned too.

    Haha, I started watching Alcatraz to see if it would be a viable replacement for my Fringe viewing.

    Alas, I was only able to last about 4-5 episodes in. I started to realize that the premise of quirky criminal of the week (OMG sniper; OMG bank robber; OMG serial land mine bomber??) can get old pretty quick compared to whatever weird science Fringe throws in (however, the Fringe cases are already starting to become very very repetitive).

    However, I'm pretty accepting of Alcatraz's overall mythology and using trauma as a theme/motif. I also think Alcatraz's female lead is more attractive than Anna Torv....

    Either way, I would rather that Fringe get renewed and Alcatraz get cancelled rather than the other way around. However, I still think the best case scenario would be for both shows to get renewed. I'm still willing to give Alcatraz another chance (I actually stopped watching Lost in the middle of the first season and was glad I returned to it).
