FRINGE: J.H. Wyman Teases ‘A Short Story About Love’
March 2, 2012 by Marisa Roffman
There’s no new episode of FRINGE tonight (the show returns with brand new episodes March 23rd), but that doesn’t mean we can’t look forward to what’s to come, right?
To help make the mini-hiatus a little bit easier, I asked executive producer J.H. Wyman what he could tease about the next hour of the series — which just happens to be the first episode he’s directed of the show.
“I think that we feel that it is definitely terrifying,” he said. “You know, the character played by Michael Massee is terrifying. But it’s also very romantic. It’s a culmination of what I could describe as — it’s a direction where we’ve been heading and I think the fans will be really happy and satisfied. But it’s a scary episode.”
On a show like FRINGE, how scary does the baddie need to be in order to be considered scary?
“It’s definitely one of the most frightening bad guys we’ve had,” Wyman teased. “But the title [of the episode] says it all — it’s ‘A Short Story About Love.’”
Oh, FRINGE. Of course one of the most frightening bad guys would be put in an episode that is also about love.
“That’s right,” Wyman laughed. “I think you’ll understand, it’s all about motivation. Love is a great motivator, for good and evil.”
Hm. The teaser for the episode was pretty darn vague, so what do you think will happen in the episode?
