Introduction

Over There, Part 1 is the twenty-second episode of the second season of FRINGE. It first aired on May 13, 2010. After learning that Peter has decided to return to his origins, the Fringe Division mobilizes and "shifts" locations in order to resolve the pending conflict and recover Peter. Walter travels with a team of his Cortexiphan Kids and arrives in a very different reality. Peter connects with his true roots while the alternate Fringe Division mobilizes to counteract what seems like an attack... the conflict escalates in Part 2.

Synopsis

Prologue

  On a Saturday morning at Fringe Headquarters in the parallel universe, the New York City Fringe Division detects and confirms an anomalous energy signature across the East River in Brooklyn - a breach is in progress. Agent Francis, 'Bolivia' Dunham and team leader Lincoln Lee gather and learn that they are facing a Class One event. Colonel Broyles enters the Situation Room and orders his responders to get to work on the new breach.

 Just two minutes away from the site of the Class One breach in Brooklyn, the trio sits with a half dozen other team members in the back of a panel van. Francis is the target of the humor... how big would the arachids he is infested with become... if he were to stop taking his medicine? Lee reads a fresh situation report: Class-One Molecular Dissolution with severe Molecular Cohesion Failure. The team arrives and quickly launches a tactical assault into the large, unoccupied theater, with orders to secure a science and risk report immediately. Inside, Lee runs onto the large stage and follows his sensor to center-front.
Source Of Breach
He sprays a fine misting agent into the air and finds the breach with a special wavelength illumination device. Lee talks to Broyles over his earphone clip and offers the bad news - Stage Three degradation, and they are in potential quarantine range. Broyles calls to have a "looker" dispatched to assess the potential need for quarantine. Outside of the theater in Brooklyn, Olivia interviews the gathering crowd to see if anyone has any information that might help. Inside the theater, Lee places a silver dollar in a glass of clear liquid, and it floats. The decreased gravity near the breach calls for a quarantine assessment. Lee unlocks and activates the quarantine device he brought with him.
 Sitting in his office, Colonel Broyles is joined by a Fringe Division "looker". Agent Farnsworth sits at a desk console and is tasked to make a risk assessment of the breach - is it spreading? They just can't afford another breach like the one that hit Boston. Farnsworth's initial assessment of the streaming data suggests that there will be ten thousand casualties if the breach is not ambered. With less than a minute before quarantine has to be initiated, gravitational degeneration and molecular degeneration decrease, but not to an acceptable level. Broyles needs a recommended course of action from Farnsworth - quickly! Bolivia joins Lee on the stage as time winds-down - calmly accepting their collective fate if the situation doesn't improve. With just a few seconds left, Farnsworth determines that the breach event is terminating and does not need to be quarantined.
Death By Carcinoma
Broyles communicates his decision to the event response team - do not quarantine! - and Lee deactivates the device with relief.

 Agent Francis calls his team to an upper level of the theater - he found something and it ain't pretty. Lying on the floor in a side corridor is a dead man covered with huge tumors. The only thing that witnesses outside the theater could say is that they heard a tearing sound and saw a blue flash through the windows of the theater - the typical signs of a breach. The trio inspects the dead man's wallet and find non-standard identification and non-standard currency... Andrew Jackson on a $20 bill? -- On the opposite side of the theater Walter Bishop, Sally Clark, Nick Lane and Olivia Dunham crawl away behind a row of seats to avoid detection and escape capture. Through the large skylight in the theater, a dirigible airship motors overhead through the cloudy skies.

ACT I

 Thirty-six hours
Observers Contribute A Clue
earlier, in this universe, Walter sits in his Boston lab and watches surveillance footage of Secretary Bishop and Peter in the hallway of the Northwest Passage Motel (Northwest Passage). Peter gets an offer to return to the universe he was born in, and he accepts it. The two men vanish in a glare of light. Olivia is coping with the loss of Peter differently by sitting alone in a quiet bar and nursing a few stiff drinks. Walter suddenly remembers something important and starts a search of his storage boxes for the information he needs. In the bar, a man in a dark suit and hat quietly places a folded piece of paper on the seat next to Olivia and leaves through the service area. Olivia looks up, and recognizes the man as an Observer. She starts after him, then stops when she sees the document he left for her. Walters grows frustrated with his search and calls Olivia at the bar - he is horrified at what he is thinking - tha something awful is going to happen to Peter. Olivia studies the document she was given as Walter continues his meltdown. The paper has an image of Peter drawn on it surrounded by A-C-G-T letter strings in random orders, like DNA. In the image, Peter's has smoke, or energy streams emanating from his eyes. Walter is certain that something terrible is going to happen.

ACT II

 Olivia meets Walter at his house to find out what he was so flustered about when he called her at the bar. Walter looks at the drawing that was delivered to Olivia and thinks that the image of Peter and the DNA strings may be what he was supposed to remember, and that he was told by the Observer that he should never let Peter return to the alternate universe. Olivia can't understand why - what does the drawing mean? Walter suspects the worst... that Peter may be capable of the destroying the world. Olivia sees what needs to be done - they need to retrieve Peter, but how? Walter hesitates... Peter left of his own free will. Olivia slams her hand down on the table - Walter! How do we get Peter back!? Walter has an inkling...

 At the New York City headquarters of Massive Dynamic, Phillip Broyles marches through the hallway to Nina Sharp's office with Olivia, Walter and a team of Agents in-tow. Two security men challenge Broyles and the intrusion, but they are immediately dismissed. Nina is startled by the unscheduled visit and quickly takes issue when Broyles charges that Massive Dynamic is manufacturing weapons for the alternate universe. Broyles wants every piece of data she has that is even remotely related to the other universe. Nina is insulted by the insanity of the accusation. Olivia jumps in and restores some order to the confrontation... Peter is in danger. She hands the drawing that was delivered to her over to Nina to study - the design of the technology is very specific and recognizable. Nina agrees - William Bell designed it - but Massive Dynamic did not build it. Olivia gets to the real reason they are there - they need Nina's help to cross over to the parallel universe.

 In one of the Massive Dynamic laboratories, Brandon explains to the
Highly Unstable - The Cup. Not The Scientist
group what he believes is the science associated with transiting between universes. The two universes overlap, and transit between them requires your universe to pass through you, like water passing through a cheesecloth. Cells separate on an atomic level, but they don't reassemble with the same molecular cohesion - and that's a real problem. Brandon has no idea how Bell managed to transit between universes so many times - they can't find any record of him doing so. How ever Bell managed to cross back and forth, Brandon suspects that Bells' molecules are now extremely unstable. To demonstrate his theorem, Brandon has a coffee mug set on a charged plate to destabilize its' molecular structure. He takes out his pointer and taps the mug briskly -- the mug disappears in a blaze of light. Nina shares the communication dilemma she has with Bell... she has been sending him messages, but has no idea if he received them, he has never returned a message. Olivia wonders if they can transit universes like Walter did at Reiden Lake. Walter doesn't think so. Doing what he did, again, could instantly shatter both worlds... and likely would. Nina excuses Brandon from the room and reminds Olivia about her ability to transit universes. Yeah, but Olivia can't control her ability. She only flashes over for a few seconds, or when Bell pulls her there. Walter thinks it through... what if there were a larger power supply to help control the crossing - more collective psychic energy? You know - more Cortexiphan test subjects. The bad news is that all of the Cortexiphan subjects have failed to develop their abilities - or have died in the process. Olivia is the only one left. Broyles shares a secret with the good Doctor Bishop: Olivia is not the only one left.

ACT III

 On the 'Experimental Campus' maintained by Massive Dynamic, Broyles and Olivia walk down a corridor to the Day Room where the recovering Cortexiphan test subjects are gathered and socializing. Broyles explains that they have five individuals that have been brought out of their induced-comas and that Massive Dynamic has been developing a series of experiments to help the test subjects "repurpose" their abilities; James Heath can cure disease, Sally Clark is a functional pyrokinetic, and Nick Lane can now control his empathic transfer. The two step into the room to meet the test subjects and Nick greets Olive with her childhood nickname - Olive. Nick giggles at what he said. So when
Getting The Band Back Together
Nick giggles, everyone giggles, including Broyles. They have no choice in the matter. Sally gets her boyfriend's attention and Nick stops his empathic trick, happy to show some self-discipline. Welcome to the Monkey House.

 Broyles and Olivia escort their three functional Cortexiphites to the Federal Building in Boston and into the Situation Room. The new command area has been funded by the Senate Intelligence Committee and is under renovation to incorporate the technology and communications needed to manage the conflict with the forces from the alternate universe. Walter approaches his now grown test subjects and is immediately recognized as the man who experimented on them in their youth. James Heath could kill Walter - and he tells him so. Apologetic and humble, Walter admits that what he did to them was inexcusable and barbaric. The experiment was designed with noble intentions... to develop guardians to protect the world when the day came that both universes were in conflict. That day may be here... Walter needs them to save his son. Broyles tells the group about the plan, there is a soft-spot in the fabric between universes in Brooklyn - they crossover tomorrow morning at eight o'clock. Heath sees that they are about to leave on a mission that could save one world, maybe two, from destruction... can they have the night off for some personal time. Broyles grants the request.

 That evening, Heath visits a community hospital with his FBI escorts. He holds the hand of a dying patient and quickly restores her health. She opens her eyes... wondering who he is. He is just a man who was never lucky, but wants to share some good luck with her. Off to the next patient. Nick and Sally have chosen to make their personal time a little more intimate. Curled-up in bed in a nice hotel room, they kiss and eat chocolate covered strawberries. Romance has a different vibe when one of those involved is an empath and can control the emotions of the other. Walter spends his evening at home doing last minutes chores.
A Gift From Olivia
He throws in some laundry, then picks-up a sweater of Peter's and smells it. Please God? Save Peter.

 Early the next morning before she leaves on her mission, Olivia sits with the sleeping Ella and wakes her up to pass on a family heirloom. Olivia's mom gave her a crucifix on a necklace before she died. Olivia was told it was meant to keep her safe. Now Olivia wants Ella to have her grandmother's necklace before Olivia leaves on her dangerous mission. Ella thanks her and Olivia relocates to the living room to check her weapon and prepare for the day. Rachel joins her, still half-asleep, and checks on what is happening. Will Olivia be home for dinner tonight? Olivia is not sure she will be. She hopes so. The two hug to say goodbye and Rachel senses that something is bothering her sister. Olivia leaves the apartment and Ella finds her mom to show her the necklace that her Aunt Liv just gave to her. Rachel is certain that something is wrong - did Olivia surrender the necklace because she thinks that she might die soon?

 In Brooklyn, Broyles and Olivia walk through an old, rundown theater and discuss the gameplan. Broyles wants to know how she thinks she is going to find Peter... assuming they are successful in crossing-over. Olivia tells him that she had Nina Sharp send a message to William Bell. The plan, if Bell gets the message, is to rally at the Grayshot Bridge in Central Park at four o'clock that afternoon. He should be able to help them find Peter after that. Broyles is also worried that the device in the drawing may have already been built in the
Bridging The Gap Between Universes
alternate universe, plus, if Bell hasn't gotten the message from Nina, Olivia and her team will essentially be invading enemy territory without any idea who the opposition is, or what the landscape might be. Walter finds the two talking and summons them to center stage... he is ready to begin. Walter needs his test subjects to form a circle around him - then he will lead them across to the other side. Broyles calls a time-out. Walter travelling to the other side? That wasn't part of the plan! Broyles won't allow it. Walter insists -- Peter is his son, and he won't allow these four to do something that he is not willing to chance himself. Broyles reluctantly nods his approval. Walter offers everyone a last opportunity to drop out. Nick Lane tells him that he and the others have already discussed it... Walter may have damaged them with his experiment when they were children - but he also made them special in the process. Fate is tricky and they are commited to this mission. Walter gathers his team around him in a circle facing him at arms's length from one another. Everyone needs to clear their minds and focus on his voice alone. They close their eyes and spread their arms out and are coached to recall the exercise they all did as children... when imagination could take you anywhere you wanted to go. Imagine this universe slipping away, opening-up like a curtain. Let the universe pass right through you and take you to the other side.... James Heath collapses and the others run to his aid. Heaths' face is beginning to cover with the tumors that once attacked his body (Olivia. In The Lab. With The Revolver.). He looks out through the large skylight and declares that they made it to the alternate universe. The large dirigible airship overhead seems ample proof.

ACT IV

 Brooklyn, New York. Standing on stage at a much better
Historical Tweak
maintained version of the theater they were in just a few seconds prior, the team of Cortexiphan-enabled adults, and the man that gave them their abilities realize that they have crossed over to the parallel universe. James Heath is nearly unresponsive, but manages to move with some assistance. Sally isn't feeling very well either, but is fairly mobile. Walter leads the group to a less exposed position higher-up in the seating as sirens approach. In front of the theater, Lincoln Lee deploys his tactical response team from their panel van -- he wants science and risk reports. Nick is trying to use his empathic powers to make the response team leave... but he doesn't have enough power to make it happen. Across the theater, where Heath collapsed and his team left him, Bolivia searches his wallet and scans the non-standard twenty dollar bill inside. Why would someone go to the trouble of expertly counterfeiting currency, but put the wrong image on it? Broyles chimes in from his office over the tactical comm system. Whatever it was that the team scanned just raised a red flag at headquarters - the Secretary of Defense wants to see the three of them.
 On Liberty Island in New York Harbor in the alternate universe, Agents Lee, Francis and Dunham make their way into the headquarters complex of the United States Department of Defense, as ordered. Francis has only once met the man they are about to report to - that was at the training Academy. Agent Lee admits that his father knew him. Bolivia chides Lee about the family connection... it explains so much. Secretary of Defense Walter Bishop is ready for his ace Fringe Division investigators when they arrive, and has them sent right in.
ZFT Author
Lee introduces his team and Bishop gets straight to the reason they were summoned - the Fringe Event in Brooklyn. The dead man that they found with tumors?... he is going to be hard to identify. The classified truth behind what is really happening has never been shared with Lee, or his team, but Bishop believes now is the time to read them in on what they are actually up against. Until now, the team has thought that Fringe Division, a special adjunct branch of DoD, has been responding to natural environmental disasters, or holes in the fabric of the universe, that began in 1985 with the Zero Event at Reiden Lake. Everyone knows this because it was the theme of the book Bishop wrote and published in 1995 - Z F T. What they don't know, the classified part, is that Secretary Bishop believes the disasterous environmental events are not the natural occurences he described in his book, but are in fact man-made. The holes in the fabric of the universe they have been responding to all these years lead somewhere - another universe... a parallel Earth with similar, but slightly different features. It is that universe that is inflicting the pattern of destruction that they struggle with daily in this universe. Bolivia makes the connection - the twenty dollar bill was from the other universe, which means the dead man was too. Bishop sets the tone for the rest of the investigation... the dead intruder at the theater in Brooklyn probably didn't come alone - so those that came with him are still on the loose and should be considered anything but peaceful. These invaders must be found, and they must be found quickly.

ACT V

  Sally sits and rests her head on Nicks shoulder. Her control of the pyrokinetic abilities she has is fading and she is burning-up as a result. Nick reassures her she will be alright as the bus they are waiting for arrives. Olivia steps into the bus and learns that they won't be riding to Central Park as they had hoped - they don't have the identification cards they need for public transportation. It looks like they are going to have to walk the last three miles to the planned rendezvous point in Central Park.

 In a quiet, bayside mansion, Peter Bishop
Long Overdue Hug
wakes-up suddenly and begins to study his surroundings. Besides the fantastic view across the water through the picture windows, the hospital bed he is in, the medical equipmnent and monitors, and the I.V. drip in his arm catches his attention. The woman that passes his window reminds him of where he is - and the choice that he made. Later, after he dresses, he joins the woman that gave birth to him and raised him until he was nine years-old. Elizabeth Bishop has aged more than two and a half decades since she and her son shared breakfast together - does Peter still enjoy bacon? Yes he does! - and a big tearful mom hug wouldn't hurt either. She missed him so much.

 After some walking, Sally is physically a wreck. Nick asks to stop so Sally can rest, but she wants to press forward with the mission. Nick asks Walter what is going wrong with them. Walter suspects that somehow their human circuit was flawed. Has anyone engage in extreme use of their abilities recent - more than normal? Nick tells Walter that they have not. Walter has no way of helping Sally just now, but - William Bell may be able to help Sally once they have gotten together with him.

 At the Bishop home, Elizabeth and Peter sit at a patio table near the water's
Mother And Son Reunited
edge with warm beverages and start to catch-up on all of the missed details from over the years. Coffee is hard to acquire in this universe, but they have a few connections because of his father. Peter shares that he never had much bacon growing-up because his mother was a vegetarian -- oops, sorry... his other mother. We don't need to talk about that, do we? To the contrary - Elizabeth wants to hear all about his childhood. Is Peter still close with his other mom? Did she take good care of him? Peter gives his mom the honest answers she wants - his other mom took very good care of him. She was wonderful, but she wasn't a strong woman and she committed suicide just ten years ago. All in all, she was a very sad woman and Peter supposes it was mostly because of him. Elizabeth reminds him that, in the end, we all have to take responsibility for our own decisions - good or bad. Now that Peter is up and about, Elizabeth has a file for Peter that his father wants him to review. Peter retires to his room to read some technical data and study some blueprints.
 Approaching Central Park, Sally nearly collapses as the group marches past a doll store. The dolls are her favorite, but they don't have time to get one - they have to get to the bridge in the park. Sally likes this universe and tells Nick she plans to stay in it. Once they enter the park and approaching Grayshot Bridge, everyone starts scanning the area to see if Bell is en route as they had requested. He is not, and they are not late... maybe he did not receive
A Toasty Day In Central Park
Nina's communique. Just as Nick and Sally detour to a water fountain to help her cool down, sirens sound and official vehicles race toward them along the footpaths in the park. Walter's rashly assumes that they have been betrayed by William Bell. Regardless, it is time run away. Walter and Olivia duck into the bushes, while Nick and Sally try to flee across the bridge. A second tactical team approaches the opposite side of the bridge, trapping Nick and Sally there, and when Nick turns back the way they came, Lincoln Lee shoots Nick in the left side of the chest as he attempts to protect Sally. Walter can't stay still in his hiding spot in the trees and bolts. A nearby Fringe agent in tactical gear fires his automatic weapon in Walter's direction and Olivia stands-up and shoots the man. Lee approaches the man he just shot, thinks he recognizes him and asks Nick? Nick Lane has seen better days and whispers to his girlfriend that he thinks he is staying in this universe too. Sally Clark assures him that they will stay together, then kisses him sweetly on the lips as he grows weaker. This is Lincoln Lee's takedown and he needs Sally to step away from Nick now. Sally won't have it - she raises her hand, and with a hearty "screw you", sends a pyrokinetic energy pulse across the bridge in all directions. Grayshot Bridge is scorched black, Lincoln Lee is engulfed and Sally and Nick have vanished. Bolivia spots Walter dashing through the woods, calls to him, then fires at him once when he doesn't stop running. Bolivia doesn't pursue Walter after she learns a team member has a bad injury back at the bridge. Bolivia returns to find Lincoln laying on his back and covered with third degree burns to his skin. Back at her hiding spot, Olivia figures she has gone undetected and starts to find her way to a safer place.

ACT VI

 After night fall, Walter Bishop fumbles through the streets of central New York City.
Walter Belly Wound
He is not feeling well. Perhaps it is the onset hemorrhagic shock... the type of shock associated with severe gunshot wounds to the abdomen. Walter stumbles on looking for relief... just ahead... excuse me. Just before he collapses, Doctor Walter Bishop catches the attention of the hospital staff gathered at the entrance to their Emergency Room.

 At his mother's home, Peter is joined by Elizabeth as he continues studying the specifications and drawings she gave to him. She is curious to know if he understands what he is looking at. Maybe. Mom is headed to bed and says goodnight. Peter continues his work.

 On the streets of New York City, Olivia looks around warily from a public phone kiosk before she starts to go through the White Pages Directory for the information she needs.

 After a rough day at work, Bolivia returns to her apartment, her live-in boyfriend
Stress Relief
Frank and a big hug. Frank gets the details on Lincoln Lee. Lee is burned over ninety percent of his body and will need three months in a nanite regeneration chamber for his recovery. Bolivia is sad that their schedules haven't aligned better lately, especially with Frank going away tomorrow for week. Frank is interested to know how Lincoln was burned. Bolivia can't tell him what really happened, so she offers up the cover story - one of the Fringe anomalies touched-off a fuel cell. You know... just simple bad luck for Lee. Good luck for Bolivia though... Frank is in the mood to render healing massage therapy. The shirt comes off before they plunk down across the foot of the bed.

 Curbside, across the street from Bolivia's apartment, Olivia watches the shadow of the affectionate couple as they embrace in silouhette. Olivia is startled when Bell joins her. He suspected he might find her tailing her counterpart. Bell tells her he had nothing to do with what happened at the park. He did gets Nina's message, but by the time he got to the rendezvous point, there was nothing he could do to help. Bell asks Olivia to trust, even though she has reason not to - particularly now that Walter is trouble, and they don't have much time left to help him.

 In a large, industrial assembly area, Secretary Bishop opens a
Exotic Component
secure side door, enters and quickly strides across the floor to retrieve the large metallic component he came for. He turns and studies an old drawing displayed nearby. The device in the blueprints that Peter has been studying back at his mother's house is hand drawn on this older document. Below it is an image of Peter with his head tipped backwards and energy pouring from his eyes. Bishop turns to the front of the large room and studies the fifty-foot tall device standing there - the device from the blueprints. Bishop retrieves the lunchbox size component he came for then exits the area and secures the room.

Quotes

"What I did... was inexcusable... barbaric. The collateral damage has been extensive. But know that we had noble goals. We believed that our world needed guardians, protectors, that you children would be those protectors. We fostered your talents because we foresaw that the day would come when both universes would be in jeopardy. So... horrible as it is to say, today is the day for which you were created. What I could never have imagined is that I would be asking you to help me save my son." - Walter (apologetic to his grown Cortexiphan test subjects as he attempts to rally them for a mission to the alternate universe)

Trivia

General
  • The Observer covertly delivers a clue about Peter to Olivia as she sits, drinks and ponders the affairs that have preceded Peter's disappearance.
  • Opening Splash. The opening title sequence used a new, red background, and replaced the normal Season 2 logo "parallel universe" with the logo -- "first people".
  • Split Episodes. This is the first time in the series that an episode has been divided into Part 1 and Part 2.
Continuity Errors
  • After Olivia determines they won't be able to ride the bus, Nick declares they are just 3 miles away. Later, as Sally starts to tire, the consensus is to continue - they are almost there. The group looks up and admires the skyline. They are still standing in Brooklyn, less than a quarter mile from the theater they arrived at, and still about five miles from their destination at the south end of Central Park
Recurring Themes
  • Infestation. Alternate universe Charlie appears to suffer from the impregnation/attack that this universe's Charlie recovered from (Unleashed).
  • Reiden Lake. The beginning of the environmental damage in 1985, known as Zero Event in the parallel universe, was initiated by Walter's actions in this universe. (Peter)
  • Communications with Bell. Nina Sharp verifies her previous claims that Bell may, or may not, receive the correspondence she sends to him.
  • Quarantine. Alternate universe Charlie mentions a quarantine/lockdown to Olivia when she was having a vision of the alternate universe (The Road Not Taken).
