    Bones and Fringe! Woot! Thank you for the scoop!
    I’m very excited that Peter’s going home 🙂 I would’ve been kind of sad if the timeline of seasons 1-3 was just “erased” from the show except in Peter’s mind. That’s no fun 😛 But yay! This is like Olivia trapped in the alternate universe only with Peter, trapped in an alternate timeline where no one knew him XD THE PARALLELSSS! But of course nothing is ever as it seems, is it…
