      Episode 1 of Season 4 of Fringe has been a bit strange. While the story of Fringe is strange and complicated in general, this one was even more strange, complicated and confusing than usual. I would not say that is was a particularly good episode of Fringe. I am afraid that with this new storyline that show’s ratings are not going to pull it through for the next season.

      Last season’s finale has taken the show’s viewers on a ride. It looked like it was a surprising end of the show. Peter,


      the metaphorical glue that connects between the different characters of the show, and is the key element in the show’s entire premise, has been wiped out of existence. He wasn’t simply destroyed when he entered that strange machine, but he entered a state where “he never existed.” I couldn’t for the life of me figure out ways in which the writers could restore the story.

      In this new season of Fringe, we get to see an entirely new world. In this world the two universes are working together and there is an actual physical connection and a gateway to move between them. The two Olivias find themselves in a position where they have to cooperate with each other, but there is still much animosity between the two of them. And this is what makes me the most confused- if they do not remember Peter, than how would they remember everything that happened to them?

      entered another universe or that they knew about the existence of another universe without remembering Peter?

      In this new episode we get to meet a new character- an FBI agent who joins the Fringe division while attempting to find out what happened to his partner. Something that looks like a mutated version of the shape-shifters is killing people in the city, the FBI agent’s partner is one of them. Now they need to find out what those things are and whether Walternet is responsible for them.

      I find that after the intensity of

      the previous 3 seasons, bringing a new clueless and inexperienced character to the show is a bit disappointing. Plus, something is wrong with Olivia’s character. She is cold and distant and completely flat. What happened to all of the vulnerability and openness she always had? It might have worked for a new show, but this is not a new show, it is just a new season.

      While I did not like the first episode of season 4 of Fringe, I am still looking forward to watching the next one. It might get better from here.
