Fringe is finally back, and it's got a lot of explaining to do! The series cast recently answered some burning questions regarding Peter Bishop's return and the insanity that follows.
Peter Bishop won't have the reunion he was hoping for. His lady love, Olivia, doesn't remember him, so his reappearance has no effect on her life. Anna Torv, who plays Agent Dunham, revealed, "He's never existed and doesn't exist in this universe. He's the one entering this world ... whereas Walter and Olivia and Astrid have made do. This is how we've always known [life] to be." Can you say odd man out?
With the timeline change, certain events have been put on the back burner or erased completely. For example: Whatever happened to baby Henry? The child of Alt-Olivia and Peter just wasn't meant to be. Torv says, "There's no possible way that Henry could happen in this timeline, because Altlivia never met Peter." We knew that would happen, but part of us still wondered if he had a shot.
As for Walter, he won't embrace Peter with open arms. It might take a whole season (or more) for the duo to return to normal. Walter's portrayer, John Noble, claims the pair's relationship "might" get back on track "if Walter acknowledges this is his son from a different dimension," which sounds like a tough pill to swallow. Considering the amount of time Walter's spent mourning his death, we don't expect him and Peter to become a big, happy family overnight.
Fringe airs Fridays at 9 p.m. on Fox.
