The beginning of the end is triggered when Walternate finds a way to wreak havoc “over here” – putting both universes in jeopardy.
Walternate, you sneaky son of a bitch. Now we learn what his plan is when he decided to accelerate Fauxlivia’s pregnancy: he wants to use the baby’s DNA (well, the half that is similar to Peter) to power the machine. Unbelievable. And he’s holding Fauxlivia hostage so that she doesn’t derail his plan to obliterate the other universe. Is there no other solution to save his universe from not imploding? Is he so angry and thirsty for revenge against Walter that he would rather kill billions of people instead of figuring out a better solution? What kind of monster is he?
Poor Fauxlivia ending up in the same cell as Olivia when this season started. I can’t wait to see her get out of from her cell and kick some major ass. Wait until AltLincoln finds out and he will also give Walternate hell for this nefarious plan and for locking up the mother of his grandson. Fauxlivia wanting to save the other universe gets her a gold star. She has come around and doesn’t believe the lies that Walternate has fed her. Plus, she doesn’t want Peter, the father of her baby to die in the process.
Nice scene of Walter in the chapel talking/praying to God and begging him to punish him instead and to spare their world. Great job, as always, by John Noble. Also nice scene with Astrid, Broyles, and Walter saying “goodbye” to Peter before he goes into the machine. I really liked the hug Astrid and Peter shared.
Sam Weiss is back and is as vague as ever, but it looks like he finally is ready to talk and provide some answers. Can’t wait.
This was a nice enough episode to set up the last two episodes of the season. I’ve a feeling this is just the calm before the storm when shit really starts happening and I can’t wait to see it.
Lastly, it was great to see Peter and Olivia being all domestic and enjoying their time in bed together before the craziness starts. Olivia walking into a naked Walter was hilarious and I loved how she tried to cover herself up when they saw each other.
