Season 2 - Episode 8 "August"

We are once again made painfully aware that "There is more than one of everything" by the arrival of a whole host of new Observers, including one named August. This Observer becomes hellbent on saving one girl from being killed by an airplane crash, which leads him to abduct her in an attempt to save her. However, the other Observers know that this can't be allowed because it will produce an alternate future, and so are forced to send an assassin to try and kill her. Meanwhile, Fringe works on deciphering the code left behind by August, which is actually a message to Walter from August asking for his help. With the assassin closing in on the girl and with nowhere left to hide, August allows himself to be shot by the assassin, which makes the girl to important to kill because she has caused the death of one of the Observers. Walter holds up his word to give the girl her stuffed bear that August has been carrying around with him ever since his first encounter with her, and August reveals that the real reason fro saving this girl was because he loved her.

And where is the Observer? Well if you didn't see him then you should really just stop trying because he is in a whole ton of shots, as well as the other Observers. I am placing a picture below of all four Observers in the customary red boxes seen in this episode, with a red arrow above our Observer. Also just as a note, the name of our Observer is September, which leads us to believe that there are only twelve Observers in total, and now only eleven alive.
