FRINGE Scoop: And the Series Finale Title Is…

December 2, 2012 by  

FRINGE’s end is almost here.

I’m currently up in Vancouver, Canada (where the Fox series films), and just left a celebration for the show’s 100th — and final — episode. And when I spoke with showrunner J.H. Wyman, he was kind enough to share what FRINGE’s last episode would be called.

I’ll have much, much, much, much more for you guys in the coming weeks, but for now, here’s Wyman…

Update 12/2, 1:46 PM PT: A Fox rep confirms that Wyman slightly misspoke when revealing the series finale title and it will actually be called “An Enemy of Fate”…which I find even more alarming. If it was what Wyman had originally stated, that sounds more like the whole team. This way, our options are limited. Is it September? Peter? Walter? Someone else? So many theories now…


FRINGE airs Fridays at 9 PM on Fox.

    Always figured there would be a reference to fate or destiny in the title.

    The Enemy of – part is most intriguing.

    Also the title abbreviates to EOF – which could also mean end of file. hmmm…..

    Well all three have been their own worse enemy and each tied to some fate (usually not good in the case of Fringe). If each is their own enemy, could they change their own fate?

    As much as I believe that Wyman wants us to have a satisfactory ending for each character, I just get overwhelmed by the feeling this will not end well. I’ve switched my position about what I need for ending (no reset because too easy, etc.).

    But I’ve settled on Olivia’s character must end happy and content and accepting of herself. If that means Peter is there, even better. If that means she raises a baby alone or is pregnant w/ or w/o Peter, perfect.

    She’s the central character as stated by the creators, cast and crew and the one that has done NOTHING by her own hand to jeapordize the future. Walter crossed universes and Peter had a child with the wrong Olivia AND put that tech into his head.

    I want them all to be ok, but Olivia must be ok. However they get there, I don’t care anymore.

    @marisa, I’m hearing Fox confirmed its “An Enemy of Fate”. That’s totally different my mind. Obviously Enemy is singular and Enemies is plural. Urgh, maybe he wasn’t prepared to give you the title. He looked anxious, emotional and a bit nervous.

    Is September the Enemy of Fate? He knows each of their fates.

    If the official title is singular I sincerely hope it’s referring to Olivia.

    I kind of like “Enemies of Fate” better, since the term seems to describe all of the characters already — Walter, fighting fate by stealing Peter; Olivia, fighting fate by not being a victim of the cortexi trials; and Peter, who came back from nonexistence.

    But, I like the title anyway because it implies a dramatic tension. It’s not “And They All Lived Happily Ever After” (although they possibly might).
