There's one scene in one episode, and then the last episode that are keys to the whole series.

I'm very happy to read this earlier this evening. The show was prepared either way, with two endings, but now they get to go with the one that brings us into next season. Yay for us, and Fox ... you should still burn in Hell for canceling Firefly ... but thanks for sticking with Fringe.


And Chicago Code as well as Alcatraz. Not sure what their deal is. Lets push something really hard and then cancel it after people grow to love it.

Yay for Fringe! It makes me happy when networks reward loyal viewers and give shows a chance to wrap themelves properly.

I'm still hoping for Alcatraz.

The TV Line Renewal Scorecard is saying Alcatraz is a long shot for renewal.

There are now just three scripted series awaiting a judgement from the suits at Fox - "The Finder", "Alcatraz", and "Touch". While theoretically Fox could make room for 10-13 episodes of all three, "Touch" is the only one that has ratings that would encourage a renewal. But then, "Fringe" certainly did not have the ratings.

I am very glad. They keep shaking things up to keep it new. As long as they keep it simple enough for the average viewer the directions they can turn are endless.

Fringe seemed to lose its way early this season, but it's really been gangbusters the last couple weeks.

A show like this deserves to wrap up exactly as is appropriate.

Only 13 episodes? There was a time when 27 episodes per season was the norm.


Well, they have 13 episodes in the other universe as well, so it adds up....

I enjoy parallel universe story lines.

But don't see how only two planet Earths can be lock together. I figure everything universe-wide would also be locked together and this would include planets with higher intelligence then us.

I just started a thread for last week's episode because I've got a question.... if you've seen it, or don't mind spoilers, please take a look and let me know if you've got an answer.

Just power watched the last five episodes this afternoon. :eek2: WOW what a ride.

The episode about the future with the observers wouldn't have made much sense without another season to explore. Glad they can finish things up properly.
