With only six episodes left, the highly-anticipated Fringe series finale is just around the corner (sans any Mayan-predicted Apocalypse). And while past episodes may have given a hint about what fans can expect to see as the series comes to a close, executive producer J.H. Wyman has revealed the name of the final episode, “An Enemy of Fate,” all-but confirming what fans had suspected: Peter is becoming the enemy.
Additionally, while speaking with TV Line, Wyman also revealed that the Fringe series finale, while not only being their last, will also be their biggest yet – in more ways than one. Although the show may have had to fight for its renewal each year, everyone is making sure that Fringe, the little show that could, receives the high-budget farewell that it deserves.
Here’s what Wyman had to say:
It’s definitely the biggest season finale we’ve ever had, It’s the most expensive…. It’s massive, really big. I wanted to go out like, ‘Wow, how did they do that?’
I wanted to make sure I handled [the action element] and the emotions with equal importance.
As the series finale title suggests, the transformation that we’ve seen Peter initiate – allowing him to gain the Observers’ powers – is slowly changing him into an Observer, almost certainly resulting in finale’s title coming to fruition.
Even though fans may all know where Fringe is ultimately headed in its final season, it will be the journey beforehand which ultimately proves the success of series’ final moments. As Peter, the boy who shouldn’t exist, continues to transform himself into the Fringe team’s most dangerous adversary, his relationship with Walter, as well as Olivia, will be put to the test, likely resulting in some of the series’ most impactful scenes to date.
If Walter is unable to save Peter (again), will he be able to make the decision he previously wasn’t able to and let him go – even if that means death?
Like most things, we’ll have to wait and see. However, with Wyman touting lofty promises of an epic conclusion – as well as the actors realizing that this is their final bow, it’ll be interesting to see how the (truly) final episode of Fringe plays out.
Fringe airs Friday @9pm on Fox
