Season 2 - Episode 16 "Peter"

Welcome back everyone. Fringe is back and better than ever! In this episode (appropriately named Peter) Walter finally explains what happened to Peter to a visibly shaken Olivia. In both universes Peter is dying of a genetic disease that as of now, has no cure. The Peter of this universe dies from the disease, but the Walter on the other side discovers a cure that could save his son. Unfortunately, The Observer accidentally distracts him and causes him to miss the moment the tests become positive. Our Walter sees the result and recreates the cure. He can't witness his son dying again, so he goes over to the other side. Nina Sharp tries to stop Walter, but her arm is severed when the door to the other side closes. Walter brings the Peter from the alternate universe back with him through the portal, but the ice underneath the portal breaks and both Walter and Peter fall into the lake. The Observer saves them both to undo the mistake he made and tells Walter that Peter is very important, and that he must not die. Walter cures Peter but is unable to send him back to the alternate universe because he loves him to much. Finally, Walter reveals that because he created that first portal, more portals have been appearing, and that is why the two universes are going to collide.

And where is the Observer? Well he made a fool of himself in this episode and possibly caused one whole universe to die, but without him Peter would have died, and apparently he is very important. You can see the Observer three times in this episode, which are shown below. He is of course in the customary red box in each picture, but you shouldn't need it.

1. When He distracts the alternate Walter from witnessing the cure.

2. When he meets with January and August to discuss his mistake.

3. When he rescues Walter and Peter.
