“Fringe” has given us highs both figurative and literal, from universe splitting to Walter home cooking LSD. And there have been distinct lows that have driven many committed fans to abandon the series altogether. The last season, this little half sized stub, has had some plot issues driving me insane, but on an emotional level, the show has never been better, and it has been steadily elevating the tension week after week in anticipation of the end.
The final episode of “Fringe”, a double length affair with halves labeled “Liberty” and “An Enemy of Fate”, will be airing on Friday night, in the traditional death slot. Here’s the trailer for the finale:
And with that voice over, John Noble emphasizes why he has been the anchor of this show, through all of the terrible experiments like soul magnets and animations about blimps. I know Morgan Freeman is the standard for having a voice so fantastic that you could listen to it reading the phone book, but I think Noble is at least in the conversation.
I just hope that they bring Gene the cow back. I’m pretty sure that she’s the architect of every inexplicable event in the series.
