Cue the R.E.M. soundtrack, because it’s end of the world as we know it. The latest spoiler video in the run-up to Fringe’s third season finale teases a possible armageddon at the hands of the demented Walternate.
After much build-up, the Fringe unit on Earth 2 seems to be initiating the destruction of our Earth, while Walter Bishop (John Noble) moans “And now I am become Death, the destroyer of Worlds”. He’s so melodramatic, isn’t he?
We also see Walternate discussing the destruction of our universe with Fauxlivia – she seems worried that he’s accepted Peter as collateral damage – but he assures her that he’s sacrificed Peter to save her son – who’s also his grandson:
I chose to give up my son so that you could keep yours.
It seems the universes are about to collide. If Fringe kills off its dual-universe device, what will the fourth season bring? And which universe would you rather was saved? That is, if Walter doesn’t come up with a last-minute solution to fix the rift between worlds…
