Fringe – Charlie will be back!

I might have jumped the gun in saying good-bye to Charlie this week.  According to Jeff Pinkner, we haven’t seen the last of him.  This article is from Wednesday, but there is still some interesting bits.  The following in an interview by TV Guide:

.

In the season premiere, Peter says, “We’re done reacting. From now on, we call the shots.” What does this mean for the structure of the show going forward?
Joel Wyman: That line is really important. We view last season as a prologue. This season focuses on the actualization of our characters and delves into their lives. Basically, Peter is going to move to the forefront, he’s going to get out there and try to find some answers. Olivia is going to go through her journey of recovery. Walter is going to be investigating his emancipation.

Will it still feel like a crime procedural or something else?
Jeff Pinkner: The show is still going to feel very much like it did last year. But when we met Peter, he was here reluctantly and he knew he could jump at any time. Over the course of the season, he became committed to his father and Olivia, developed feelings for both of them in different ways. He starts to realize that some of these cases affect him personally, that he’s involved in this world in a way that he can’t quite understand.

What are the lessons from Season 1?
Pinkner: In Season 1, our characters were still coming together. They were learning about each other and this world they live in. Olivia was learning about her childhood. All three of the characters were finding their sea legs.
Wyman: We discovered that the cases are intriguing and fun, and it’s great to freak people out, but people definitely want to get to know our characters more. They want to understand what they’re going through on a personal level.

How much longer will “Charlie” be around?
Pinkner: “Charlie” will be around for at least [one more episode].
Wyman: That’s not to say he won’t come back. Don’t forget — there’s a parallel-universe Charlie too. We’ve seen him already.
Pinkner: Actually, I just left a set where [Kirk Acevedo] was filming. [Editor’s Note: They were producing Episodes 8 and 9 at the time of our interview.]

Easter Eggs – 204 Momentum Deferred – Part 1

There are some other Easter Eggs that I will put in a separate post after I have had a chance to watch this episode frame by frame…but I wanted to get these up because the graffiti was just to cool!  It reminds me of the poster they released this summer.

Whhhhhhhere’s Waldo?

.

It’s also interesting to note that this is the same graffiti seen in Episode 202, and it was also the Next Episode Clue for 203.

Easter Eggs – 203 Fracture

Here is what I and others have found for Easter Eggs in Episode 203-Fracture.

.

– Walter says “I stopped counting at 47” in reference to the needle holes in Officer Gillespie.  JJ loves that number.

– Officer Joan Klump is named after Post Production Supervisor John Klump.

– A Star Wars reference “Can you just cut the Yoda crap and tell me what’s happening to me.”

– A Wizard of Oz reference – Project Tin Man

– This isn’t so much an Easter Egg, but Walter foreshadowed the fringe science of this episode in The Road Not Taken, with his comment – “Matter is just energy waiting to happen. The average adult at rest contains enough potential energy to explode with the force of five very large hydrogen bombs.”

– A huge thanks goes out to David Wu of Fringemunks for this discovery. William Bell says ‘War is Coming’.

– We were correct last week in thinking that the Van Gogh portrait might be the next episode clue. It is well known that he cut off his own ear, and this week we see the severed ear that Walter is holding.

.

The following may be Easter Eggs, Next Episode Clues or nothing at all…you be the judge.
