‘Fringe’ Season 4 Finale Trailer: Observers and…Dinosaurs?

Published 3 years ago by


Coming off last week’s shocking episode of Fringe, where we saw a team member go down, this week’s season 4 finale is set to take the series to a whole new level of bizarre – with more mad scientists, Observers and, if you believe the trailer (below), dinosaurs?

In last weeks’e episode of Fringe - which is the first of two installments for the finale – it was surprisingly revealed that William Bell (Leonard Nimoy) is still alive. Even more surprising than the sheer knowledge of Bell’s existence was the fact that Leonard Nimoy actually reprised the role in person. With Bell (potentially) killing a fan-favorite character on the series, while also revealing to be puppet master behind David Robert Jones, the battle has been set for the Fringe season 4 Finale.

Fringe star John Noble discusses Bell’s shocking returning to the season, as well as what fans can expect to see in the series finale:

“[Bell] has taken control completely… and I think he’s completely insane at this point. The challenge for me is to try to fight back for a while and then realize that I can’t beat him…. He’s holding all the cards.”

In many ways, Fringe season 4 has seen its highs and lows for both the Fringe team, as well as the series in general. With the return of a timeline-displaced Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson), the resurfacing of Olivia’s (Anna Torv) missing memories, the bridging of two universes and a quick stop into the future for a single episode, the anticipatory cancellation of the show left fans worried that they wouldn’t receive a proper ending to a series they followed for many years.

And while the fate of Fringe was on the bubble for a while there, we now know that Fringe will return for season 5. Consisting of 13 episodes, this will provide the producers with enough actual showtime to appropriately wrap the series (and all of its many storylines) the way they (hopefully) originally intended.


Fringe season 4 airs this Friday @ 9pm on Fox.

  1. So, basically, it took rewriting the timeline, re-creating a universe where Peter Bishop exists and then collapsing that universe in order to restore order to the timeline that we originally know and love? Bell’s collapsing of the two universe into a third is the method by which the protagonists because the First People – in other words, our “original” universe. Maybe?

    If that’s the case, I’ll give the writers all of the credit they deserve, because I have not been impressed with the quality of this show since the beginning of season three. This would be an excellent way of turning the show around, even though they desperately, desperately need to swap out their entire writing staff for the last season. Great vision, poor execution.

    • Obviously meant “become the First People”.

  2. Bringing Bell back now in this way, Huge Mistake.
    And Terra Nove had some leftovers??
    We saw One episode with a glimpse of the Arc of Noah Bell style.

    The only thing I loved about 4.21 was that finally Olivia was allowed to be Active again, she has been sacrified to Peter since the middle of season 3.
    More Anna Torv has been sacrified for Pacey Josh Jackson.

    If this season was about Peter finding his way home, how is it that Anna Torv has been doing all the hard, underrated work, for which she had to destroy AmberOlivia to replace her step by step by BlueOlivia?

    We were finally going to get Olivia Dunhams backstory the last third of this season, where did that go?
    I know Noble wants to play his favourite Walter, and the writers only want to write for Walter/Noble, no need to make it that obvious.

    I hated 419, the 1936 setting, the cliche sexism and racism and most of all the way Pinkner and Wyman have sunk that low in their disgusting treatment of Anna Torv: replacing her and having an Etta be a badcopy of Olivia.
    Everything about Olivia, mannerism, expressions, etc, is the work of Anna, they just let is copy and on top of that that person gets praised for it by critics, fans, Wyman, only castmemeber to do so Jackson and Pinkner.
    I am certain that if someone would copy the work of either Jackson, Wyman, Pinkner they would take legal action.

    But Pinkner has never respected Anna Torv.He came in after the pilot, Olivia Dunham at her best as a character, Pinkner decided that Fringe was to be for Jackson and Noble.

    Huge mistake, Olivia Dunham has far more potential, and Anna Torv is by far the best actor on Fringe, totally underrated, simply because she does not get the writing Noble gets.

    Season 5 should be finally about Olivia Dunham, Anna Torv central is what made the period between Jacksonville and Marionette the best part of Fringe.

    My fear is, with Wyman ignoring every question about Anna, Anna seeming to have vanished, that they are going to remove her via the backdoor.

  3. Keep Leonard Nimoy until the series finale, and I’ll keep watching.

  4. I can’t take this show anymore. I used to love it but season 4 ruined it for me.
    I have resorted to reading spoilers on screen rant to save me the time it would take to labour through any more poorly written and poorly executed episodes.
    I used to tell people to tune in. A bit embarrassed about it now:P
