Lincoln: I got something for you, Liv.
Altlivia: Really? What’s this?
Lincoln: A pendant from my former partner, Robert. It’s Native American. The maze represents the journey of life. The obstacles, making the right choices. Until we find ourselves in the centre.
Altlivia: What’s in the centre?
Lincoln: Home. A place to belong. Where the heart is.

I wanna take a moment and explain why I love this scene so much since I have a feeling that the next couple of days will be all about the birthing scene - which I loved and thought was beautifully acted - but I’ve always been a fan of subtle character moments and subtle acting and this scene has both. It actually reminds me of when Olivia finds out about Peter and AltLiv and it doesn’t matter what she’s saying at that moment because her eyes and expressions tell you all you need to know about her pain, this scene is my Lincoln version :D He is still inquiring about the mission and being professional but his eyes and expressions tell me all I need to know about the confusion and pain he is feeling. It is so beautifully done. He is just learning that Olivia was on a mission, he spent weeks working with another Olivia, that his Olivia was pregnant from Peter, that she had a relationship with him and his heart is breaking into million pieces but he can not admit to any of those things because to anyone else what right does he have to be hurt, to feel heart broken, to feel confused and he can not voice any of those things and he just stands there trying to learn more in the most professional manner possible but inside he just wants to cry because it was not some random guy she met in a bar, it was Peter, a guy she had a relationship with that was the father of her baby and he feels like he’s lost all chance with her once again. In short, I love the scene :D As always feel free to delete my ramblings if you wish if you want to just reblog the graphic :D
It’s such a beautiful moment. There’s also the hurt in the realization that he spent all those weeks loving an impostor. And the fact Charlie questioned it and he didn’t…
Love the scene, love the comments about it too because it is a powerful scene there.
All of this. I’ve said before, and it’s true: that swallow was the moment I needed to started writing Fringe.
Agreed. Love the parallel the OP does with the Olivia scene from Marionette, because it’s exactly that. It’s seeing their hearts breaking up right then and there, while at the same time they are doing the best they can to not fall apart in the spot.
Seth did beautifully in this scene.
