FRINGE Exclusive: J.H. Wyman Shares Episode 7’s Title
October 15, 2012 by Marisa Roffman
In case you’ve doubted the usefulness of Twitter, clearly you’re not following FRINGE showrunner J.H. Wyman. Earlier today, he tweeted out the episode title for the sixth hour of the final season (“Through the Looking Glass and What Walter Found There,” in case you missed that nugget), so when he and I got on the phone this afternoon, I couldn’t resist asking what episode seven would be called.
“The title is going to be very mysterious,” Wyman teased. “But it’s called ‘52010.’”
And while in theory it’s mysterious, it’s not unfamiliar to hardcore FRINGE fans — the number was not only used in “Jacksonville,” but it was one of the codes Walter used in Massive Dynamic in “Letters of Transit.” In fact, in my recap for 4×19, I wrote: “Did anyone notice the number they used to key into the facility? “052010″…Walter used that combination in ‘Jacksonville.’ I literally cannot tell you why those numbers stuck in my head, but we have no context as to why those are important, do we? It’s been driving me crazy that I somehow remembered those numbers two years later but I have no idea if they mean anything more. (I think at the time, I speculated it might have something to do with the finale date.)”
Looks like we may finally find out what the deal is in episode 7…
Tell me, do you have any good “52010” theories?
(And be on the look out for more from my chat with Wyman, because he had some juicy teases of what’s to come.)
FRINGE airs Fridays at 9 PM on Fox.
