OKC Fringe Finale Party Recap

It's hard to believe that it's been nearly 2 months since the Fringe finale. We want to again thank everyone who was able to make the trip to Oklahoma City and be a part of the Golden Spiral Media Fringe Finale Party! Whether you drove in from just a few miles away,...

    What if Peter has got the alt-Oliva prego but in fact that Peter and Oliva have kids and there kids become the Observer “race” (for want of a better term).

    Just a thought! Not sure if someone has had that thought before!

    I really had the impression that when August made the comment about being a dad, he was referring to how hard it must be for Walter to be a dad, seeing as Walter had to risk his son by giving him the keys. Hope so anyway… Don’t really want to watch episodes of them sharing parental visitations…. 🙂

    Darrell & IHardy are right.

    August said at the end that he wasn’t sure if his plan would work. So when he was standing on the roof of the building and he saw Peter run out. That’s when he had his confirmation that his plan had worked. That’s why he more or less mused to himself that it must be difficult to be a father, referring to the choice that Walter just made that might have meant the death of Peter. I don’t think it was directed at Peter (or anyone).

    Even if Fauxlivia turns up preggers later, I don’t think this was intended to be the reveal for that. I’m sure he was talking about Walter here.

    On the basis of the Fauxlivia being pregnant theory, should the song next week be Madonna’s “Papa don’t preech”? You know, Fauxlivia is going “to keep her my babe”! 😉

    I’m a bit behind in the podcasts, but Fauxlivia is SO preggers! Come on! Peter and Fauxlivia were in the sack way too much, she has to be. Can’t wait to see how this plays out. Great podcast guys!
