Last Friday, Fringe kicked off its fifth and final season. With only 12 episodes left, the writers are pulling out all the stops. Co-star Joshua Jackson (Peter Bishop) hints that the next few weeks lay the groundwork for a game-changing event.
During a routine set visit, Jackson spoke candidly about the new season. But when discussing his greatest obstacle in the Observer's world, he said, "Ask me again after episode four. There's pretty major revelations through this three-act play that we're doing, but for [Peter] there's a pretty major shift that comes after four." The episode's official title is "The Bullet That Saved the World," and we're terrified of what that implies for the group.
Jackson continued, "We have a scene—with a character who I will not name, doing a thing I can't tell you about—where [a dangerous] scenario plays out. It's just a small, quotidian thing. [But] one break from the routine leads to disaster. I mean, really @#$!-ing major disaster. And if that sense of dread permeates the show this year, I think that's really good."
Could it be Walter? Or maybe Etta accidentally sets this chain in motion? What's your theory?
Fringe airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
