Into the Yellow Universe!
Hey fellow Fringe fans, am I dreaming or did we just enter into the Yellow Universe? At the exciting conclusion to the last episode of Fringe we see Peter wake up into a chaotic tableau. Amidst the explosions and people rushing to and fro one the main thematic brush strokes we see is the color yellow. From the explosions reflected off Peter’s shirt, to the actual explosions themselves, to the now yellow Fringe Division patch and even the sky behind the “Bad Robot” as it zips across the screen at the end. All colored in yellow.
What accounts for this? My theory is when Walter and company brought the “Vacuum Machine” from Pittsfield, MA. to New York City he created what is called a “Traversable Wormhole”. This type of wormhole not only theoretically allows you to travel across the universe at speeds greater than the speed of light but also conceivably between two universes and through time! Walter gave a simple illustration of this to Broyles when he demonstrated this with the iron filings and two magnets. (It was also pretty funny when he told Broyles to pay attention and Broyles had to let out a heavy sigh.)
One of the words we see in the opening title sequence to Fringe is “wormholes” and it looks like the clever writers at Fringe have found a way to tie all this in. In the teaser trailer for next weeks episode it sounds as if Walternate is accusing Peter of destroying his universe. What I am saying is Peter didn’t so much as destroy the Red universe as he did remake it. Something Sam Weiss alluded the “Vacuum Machine” was capable of when he and Olivia parted company. So what do you people think? Did Peters intervention with the machine end the reign of the Red Universe and remake into a Yellow one?
