Seriously, Fringe, you're spoiling me! First there was that little numerical clue punched into the keypad of the old Massive Dynamic. (Season 5 start date?)
Then we get that little conversation between the Silver Fox Nina Sharp, Simon Foster and Henrietta that went like this...
Whoa there cybernetic Silver Fox, did you just give away the end of season four of Fringe!!??? Are we to understand that the Fringe team defeated David Robert Jones and all his machinations to start a brave new world?
I'm not saying that's a bad thing. Stopping Jones' plan that is. But wouldn't we rather see the events play out on the small screen as opposed to future Nina spilling the chewable coffee beans? OK, maybe Nina was talking about some other world threatening event but I for one can't think of one off the top of my head. I suppose we all knew our mighty Fringe team would prevail in the end over David Robert Jones. So Nina's little slip shouldn't come as a surprise. But c'mon!
And how about that little conversation between Agent Broyles and the detestable Captain Windmark of the odious Observers. How does that tie into the future plans of Jones? Broyles asked Windmark what he had done in the future to earn himself such a "crap" detail in the year 2036.
"I like animals" was his reply. Creepy! Do you suppose he was referring to the human animal hybrids that Jones was working on and we caught glimpses of in the episode, "Nothing As It Seems"?
Did Windmark do something to destroy these "animals" or did he actually preserve them much to the consternation of the rest of the Observers. I'm hoping for the latter. Then the prescient words of the immortal Kent Brockman will finally come true for our poor battered world.
Tell it like it is Kent! On second thought, I hope future stylish Nina is right. Save the world Walter!
(Did anyone else spot that other numerical reference of 05 20 10? Check out that date here. Ominous!)
