'Fringe' Friday: Back to the future
If you have ever loved "Fringe," you need to watch this week’s episode, "Letters of Transit."
"Fringe" always likes to have a little fun as it gets closer to the end of the season. In year two, we got "Brown Betty," Walter’s pot-induced journey into the world of musical film noir. Then last season we were treated to an animated view inside Olivia’s crowded brain with "Lysergic Acid Diethylamide." This year it’s "Letters of Transit," where (spoiler alert!) "Fringe" takes us to the year 2036.
I was lucky enough to see the episode early, and it will be a treat for all "Fringe" fans. It is like they stole an episode from "Fringe" Season 12 and let us watch it early (which every loyal "Fringe" fan should do, preferably live if we ever want to see "Fringe" Season 5).
That not enough for you? How about a special guest appearance by Desmond himself, Henry Ian Cusik? Though we never get him shouting, "Penny!"
Still not enough? How about a totally new opening? We’ve had the standard opening, the 1980s opening, the parallel opening and the alternate opening. Now we get the rebellion opening:
Tune in Friday night, watch "Fringe," then come back for the recap. I can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks.
