Season 2 - Episode 12 "What Lies Below"

Sorry about this being late, I haven't had much time this week to post. Anyway, this episode depicted a virus that could take control of a human host once they were infected, and would try as hard as it could to infect more people. Fringe is called in to investigate and Peter is infected in the process, which causes Walter to partially reveal to Astrid that Peter has already died once. The CDC orders the complete destruction of the area to stop the spread of the virus, but Walter is able to produce a cure just in time to save everyone in the building from being destroyed. And just as a side note, as I watching this I was reminded of the potential zombie virus. This could very well be the reason behind a zombie's need for human flesh, to infect other humans. The virus takes over, hence the whole "dying" thing, and then they attack humans to spread the disease. Just something to think about.

And where is the Observer? When the lead CDC guy is telling his aid that they are going to need to blow up the building in order to stop the infection from spreading, the Observer walks right behind them. He isn't that hard to spot, but even so I have put the customary red box around him. Have fun.
