FRINGE: ‘Back To Where You’ve Never Been’ You Ask, I Answer
January 7, 2012 by Marisa Roffman
FRINGE fans, you may want to thank the weather gods for having the World Series pre-empt the show (and therefore pushing the planned fall finale to this Friday), because believe it or not, that “Wallflower” cliffhanger was kinder to be in suspense about for a month and a half than “Back to Where You’ve Never Been” would have been.
I had the opportunity to screen “Back to Where You’ve Never Been” earlier today, and to celebrate the eighth episode, I’m answering five of your questions and giving you three of my own teases.

Will we get any good Peter/Olivia scenes? - @_overthere via Twitter
Peter shares scenes with more than one version of Olivia in “Back to Where You’ve Never Been,” and there are certainly interesting aspects to every one of them. However, there is one teeny throwaway line of dialogue in the episode about Peter’s thoughts about one of the Olivias that stuck out to me. I can’t wait to dissect it with you in this week’s recap.
Is that Walter’s old crossing portal we see in the previews? – @FringeBinge2011 via Twitter
It is! A few of our characters use it (and a familiar location) to cross over to the altverse, where a large portion of the episode is set.
Will we see shirtless Frank again? A duel with him & Lincoln? LOL – @Lola4Fringe via Twitter
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but there’s no Frank (shirtless or otherwise clothed) when we check in with the altverse. It is a pretty big hour for Seth Gabel’s Lincolns, as the duo come face-to-face for the first time. And let’s just say they aren’t meeting under the best circumstances.
Without telling names, is anyone going to die on Fringe’s next episode? – @iwontfakeit via Twitter
At least one character we know is gravely injured before the hour ends. (No, I’m not counting a one-off guest star. A few of those didn’t end up so hot, either.)
Do you know if any of the characters will remember Peter and if so when? – @Kayy_85 via Twitter
As far as remembering Peter and their history with him, that would be a bit tricky since Peter still needs to find a way to return to “his” timeline. An unexpected person does recognize Peter, though…
And now my teases…
- It’s appropriate “not everything is as it seems” was the closing line of this arc’s promo because it is absolutely true. There was a literal jaw-dropping moment at one point in the episode.
- You may want to re-read this interview I did with FRINGE executive producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman.
- John Noble managed to be both extremely accurate and coy with his tease about the hour. There’s a good reason why that particular part of the episode would be memorable to him.
