FRINGE Preview: ‘The Abducted’ Brings The Candyman and Olivia’s Quest to Return Home

November 18, 2010 by  

Tonight’s brand new episode of FRINGE is set “over there” and our Olivia’s growing unrest over her displacement is reaching a boiling point.

In “The Abducted,” Olivia reaches out to Henry (returning guest star Andre Royo), who is really the only person on the other side whom she trusts. And apparently her hijacking of his cab in the third season premiere is all forgiven because he’s willing to help her above and beyond the call of duty.

I’ve seen the ep and while I don’t want to ruin the experience for you guys and spoil everything, I do have a few teases for you…

I’m guessing that those of you who were apathetic towards some of the alt-characters will start warming up to them this evening. As the Fringe team investigates a kidnapper nicknamed the Candyman — a man who abducts a child every couple of years — we get to see a whole new side of alt-Broyles who has a very personal connection to the case. Heck, even Walternate is sympathetic for about 30 seconds thanks to his empathy for the parents who have lost their kids. (Don’t worry, your sympathy won’t last long.)

Olivia and alt-Broyles’ relationship takes several interesting turns in the hour, as she initially defies advice from her team members and confronts him about his personal involvement in their case. And despite his knowledge of who Olivia really is, Broyles respects her and trusts her enough to let her into a very private part of his life. She repays that trust by risking her journey home to make sure the Candyman case gets solved properly.

Peter has been consistently appearing to Olivia as a reminder of who she is, but now that she seems to be fully aware of her reality, his presence in tonight’s hour has an entirely different purpose…

After this evening’s episode, there will be a Thanksgiving-induced break and trust me when I say the wait is going to be dreadful. Check out this spoilerific preview of tonight’s events, highlighting Olivia’s quest to return home…

    My ticker is all a flutter. Fringe is so frigging awesome right now, and you have me worried I’ll be screaming at my TV tonight – but in a good way!
