“The Fringe Division is a special adjunct branch of the Department of Defense. It’s primary focus are natural and environmental disasters that began in 1985 with the Zero Event at Reiden Lake.”
“And what are these natural disasters?”
“They’re holes in the fabric of the universe.”
FRANCIS: I already told you. I’m not calling you sir.
LINCOLN: Alright. Then tell me about ‘Bug Girl’.
FRANCIS: Alright. First off, her name is Mona.
FRANCIS: It was tea, and, uh, I’m not going any further than that.
LINCOLN: Why not?
FRANCIS: Buddy, why don’t you stop focusing on me and just admit… You’ve got a thing for Liv.
LINCOLN: That’s ridiculous. Although I do think if she was going to cheat on Frank with someone… You know what? It’s none of my business.
FRANCIS: Yeah. I knew that was driving you crazy.
Fringies, a question: In the alt-verse/new timeline, did everyone know about the existence of another world? I mean, it was public knowledge, or only for Fringe Division? Because when Liv told Lincoln “here you’re heros” I never knew if she was refering to the world in general or just among Fringe Division members?
The alternate universe: no Batman, no Sherlock
- Fringe season 4
Meanwhile in the Redverse… (part 7) - The Wait
When Lincoln and Liv found out she was pregnant, they didn’t know if to be happy or terrified. They weren’t expecting it, first of all. Liv had told Lincoln about the Viral Propagated Eclampsia, and how her sister and her baby died because of it, so they had decided not to take risks, at least until there were advances in therapy against the virus. That’s why Lincoln started taking the male pill (Liv was terrible to remember to take any medications, so Lincoln decided to do it). But no contraception is 100% effective, and they were proof of that. The ghost of the VPE was strongly present, since Liv had 80% chances to be a carrier herself. So the first thing they did after confirming the pregnancy, was to take all the tests necessary. Against their hopes and wishes, Liv was indeed carrier for the virus.
Those were the hardest months for the couple since they got together. Liv wanted to be strong, but the truth was she was terrified. She had one or two breakdowns through the process, and that’s how she learned her husband was the greatest emotional support she could have ever wished for. Lincoln tried to stay positive, and he frequently found himself daydreaming about his son/daughter, and how could he learn to be a good father. But deep down he was just as much or even more afraid than Liv. There were chances he could lose both his wife and his child, and that was simply an unbearable thought for him.
Walternate talked to them about a procedure called “accelerated pregnancy” , that was still in study phase, but that could help avoid the effects of the virus. After discussing it, both Lincoln and Liv decided against it. The procedure was something new, it hadn’t been tried yet, so there was no certainty about its safety and if it could work at all.
They were left with no other choice but wait, and hope everything would turn out well.
At the end, the baby was born a few weeks before due, but both mother and child were completely healthy. They decided to call him Trevor.
Walternate hypothesized that maybe Lincoln’s genes, being him from another world where the virus didn’t exist (for a reason), might have helped suppress the damage it should have caused on both Liv and Trevor.
Rest of the series here.
So in the altverse, Chelsea Clinton is about to become President of the USA.
I wonder why The Observers decided to invade the amberverse but not the redverse (ok, I’m just assuming here, because if they were, we would have found earlier, right?). The excuse of The Observers was that humans were destroying the world, so they decided to take control (but now after the last episode I’m not so sure about the reason anymore).
Anyway, about the redverse not being invaded, I wonder if the fact of suffering so much damage and destruction as effect of Walter crossing over, made that society more conscious, more careful about their world, so the Observers didn’t consider necessary to invade them?
What if Jeff Pinkner left Fringe to produce the pilot for “Redverse”?? What if??
… Yeah, I know that’s not happening. But a girl can dream, right? =/
