Has Bell been lying to Nina and if so, why?
I’ve thinking since Bell’s return was hinted at, why does Nina appear to not know? Is she lying, or has Bell been running his operation in secret without involving Nina?
Everything in the show points to Nina not being aware that Bell is alive. She claims to have seen his dead body. My theory there is that it was the body of the alt Bell who we have always been told died in a car crash. Makes sense that in this timeline Blue Bell could have used the misfortune of Red Bell to his advantage that way.
In the Beyond the Fringe comics #5A and #6A, Ghost Writer Part 1 and 2, some time in the past Nina’s robotic arm (a previous model) started writing clues and leading her to a secret chamber. Once in the chamber there’s those immortal words *along the lines of* “If you’re listening to this, I’m dead…” and presents her with her new (the current model, as far as I could see) arm.
It’s been clear throughout the TV show and comics of Fringe that Bell and Nina were close, and that Nina could be a very useful ally for Bell if she was onboard with his idea. So why not trust her?
Let me know what you think…
