Fringe S5 E88: Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11

The first episode of season 5 titled,  Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11 was a good start to the final season, the pacing was good and there was never a lull throughout. The jump to the year 2036 opens up so much potential story line but with only 13 episodes left the writers of Fringe hopefully have a clear idea of how they are going to conclude this fantastic series.
As usual John Noble delivered an amazing performance, the interrogation scene with Captain Windmark was very powerful and was totally believable that Walters mind was being ravaged as Windmark searched for info. I imagined Michael Douglas in Black Rain tearing apart the gang hideout but that was what was happening to Walters mind.
I like Georgina Haig's character Etta, Daughter of Peter and Olivia, she resonates a mental fortitude and determination that both Peter and Olivia have....or had. I got the impression that both Peter and Olivia were tired...dejected that after everything they went through they still couldn't save their timelines future. Etta felt like she was humanities torch bearer.
After letting the events of the episode sink in and pondering what this universe is going to do to defeat the "observers". I thought to myself what if September fragmented the info betwenn Walter AND Walternate!
And the only way to access it is for both Walters to use the Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11 from their respective essence a mind meld with both Walters!
The finale scene where Walter is blinded by the sun reflecting off of the CD's also hints to my theory....reflection of himself....on half a disk. I think the sun will also play some part in the conclusion of Fringe...the yellow dandelion, the song Only You by Yazoo.....I did a little Google search and looky at what I found!


  1. Great episode, but I think Walter's mind hasn't had the information removed, but rather, his brain has been fragmented -- like a hard drive. Someone will have to 'fix' his brain again. Poor Walter always has someone (himself or someone else) messing with his brain. LEAVE WALTER'S BRAIN ALONE!!!

  2. First thing that came to mind what captain Windmark was probing Walters mind was the scene in Hellraiser II when Dr Channard was lobotomizing a patient during a lecture....then I recalled how disturbed you get when you see people tooling around with brains!
