I've come to the conclusion that the best thing about Fringe, besides the insane future science, is Walter. Walter is just priceless. All the best lines in any of the episodes belong to him. From his random cravings to his incomprehensible ramblings, to singing Row Your Boat in the middle of the night. Walter is brilliant. He'd probably be really annoying to be actually related to, so I kind of feel for Peter, but in terms of quality Walter is just fantastic.

This week's episode concerns the fantastic beartraplike parasite thing found wrapped around the heart of agent Loeb. Who is like some high ranking agent and friend of Philip Broyles. Through a complex web of manipulation they figured out they needed to talk to Mr Jones and he needs to ask a question to a Mr Smith before he'll help save the agent in trouble. The only trouble is Smith has just been shot through the head. There's excitement and mad science galore as Walter figures out how to talk to the dead just in time to save Loeb's life. Unfortunately it seems that Loeb put that parasite inside himself as a way of getting Smith and Jones (just got that) to talk to one another and ask that question. The question which is "where does The Gentleman" live, to which the answer is "Little Hill". It's all very intriguing but at the moment it doesn't mean a whole lot. I think this program is playing the long game and keeping it's cards close to it's chest at the moment. In the future we may find out more about what is going on with The Gentleman and Little Hill but then again this is a J J Abrahms program. So chances are that we'll never really find out the significance of anything that goes on in it and the moral of the story is we should just sit back and enjoy the ride. All in all I give this one a seven thumbs up.
