Olivia’s Abduction During the Orange Timeline
It seems that some people are questioning whether or not Olivia was actually imprisoned in the Redverse in this timeline or simply held captive in the Blueverse while the other Olivia impersonated her, and I just wanted to offer my two cents. Although I obviously have no idea how it would have happened since Peter wouldn’t have been involved, I think that she was still held captive in the Redverse because of something that Redverse Lincoln says in “One Night in October” (4.02); he says to Olivia that she must really hate being here (as in the Redverse), and that, to me, suggests that she was still held captive in the Redverse, made to impersonate their Olivia. I offer two additional points of reference to hopefully help support my claim. Firstly, I definitely got the distinct impression from “One Night in October” that Olivia and Redverse Lincoln had met before, even though Lincoln probably hadn’t realized it at the time. Secondly, I think that it’s safe to assume that very little has been affected over there because Peter spent very little time over there; obviously, the other Olivia is not pregnant and is still with Frank, but other than that, not much is different, so how would the Redverse’s Fringe Division team have accounted for their Olivia’s absence if our Olivia wasn’t brainwashed? Walternate, with or without Peter, would be secretive and would keep the truth from the team, but, like I said, that’s merely my two cents.
