The Observers and Tinker Bell
Here's one question I hope gets answered Friday night.
What is the mystery behind the little golden orbs that float around Fringe? You know, the ones we see associated with the glyphs and all the Fringe promos such as the ones below.
If you closely at the escalator picture at the top of this post you'll see three of the golden orbs reflected in the escalator handle. To me, these little clues mean we are going to get a visit from one of the Observers and to look closely for them. Sometimes the orbs are a reflection, as seen above, and sometimes they are a muted light or light bulb in the background of a scene. (And sometimes they are fire flies right Peter?)
After the episode, "A Better Human Being" I did a blog post where I examined this very same phenomenon and you can read it here.
Wouldn't it be interesting if the little golden orbs where the non-corporeal manifestation of the Observers as they traveled through time and space?
You know, Tinkerbells from the future except not nearly as cute or nice. In fact, they are mean and bald and have delusions of grandeur. "Monsters" Walter called them.
Let's hope September gets a fairy tale ending at least.
