Sep 30, 2012 | 2 comments

In episode 502 of The Fringe Podcast we break down the Fringe season 5 premiere entitled, “Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11.” We talk about the new feel of the episode and how this season will likely be different from previous seasons. We share our thoughts on the cast of characters for season 5 and how they are still very similar to the characters we’ve seen in previous seasons. Darrell offers up two new theories on the Observers and William Bell. Clint shares some real world science that relates to what we saw in this episode. And, of course, we discuss some of the powerful scenes from this episode and the amazing work the cast and crew did.

Here are the links mentioned in our Science of Tomorrow segment:

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,...


  1. The Unabeefer

    I think the Observers being a created being (and unaware of it) would explain why there are no females… I like that theory a LOT.

    Also, the opening scroll of 4×19 was a Blade Runner reference as well.

    I LOVED the scene with Markham!!! The guy had totally lost his mind, but it was awesome!! …and keep in mind that he may have only ever met Olivia the once in season 4. He didn’t know Peter or Olivia at that point due to the re-set…

  2. Mandrake

    I think that the last scene with the music and flower are more significant than you guess. Widmark makes a point of saying that he and his people don’t understand music. I think that the music in Walters head was some way to piece together the clues and Walter knew that the Observers wouldn’t figure it out since they essentially see music as worthless.
