This fan has become increasingly confused with the convoluted plot of "Fringe." The season ended with what appears to be a final show for the complete series. "The Day We Died."
Fans may remember the last episode when Peter actually entered the strange machine from the alternate universe. However, the end of that world made Walter Bishop (John Noble) a prisoner and one of this worlds most hated men. In this amazingly confusing episode, viewers once again enjoy the performances of Astrid (Jasika Nichole) a member of the Fringe Unit, Lance Reddic (Phillip Broyles) a senator, Peter Bishop (married Olivia) and became a member of Fringe, and Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) herself.
In this episode, fans see a group run by Walternate, when he became stranded in this world while trying to fix the problems in his world. Hate filled, and building light bombs that create worm holes, Walternate tells Peter in a secret meeting that he intends to make Peter suffer as his world has suffered.
Getting our Walter out of jail to discover the material used in these bombs, Walter finally has a moment to welcome Olivia into the family. Happy as a clam and munching on red licorice Walter works away in his lab.
As Peter struggles with stopping worm holes and is secretly meeting with Walternate, he leaves Olivia alone with her team in Central Park Arrviving at a cabin near Reiden Lake Peter encounters Walternate. After learning of this fathers hate for Peter and his world it becomes clear that Walternate means to harm those who Peter loves. Reaching for the man, Peter discovers Walternate isn't really at the house, but a hologram, Peter panics and runs out. While fans are presented with the real Walternate stepping up to Olivia at the Park and shooting her. The shock of this brought tears to my own eyes as I watch Peter give the eulogy for his beloved Olivia.
Drinking heavily and feeling his pain, Peter breaks down over a picture drawn by the neighbor child. In the drawing Olivia had explained that it was Peter, herself, and their future child, as imagined by Amanda.
This episode of "Fringe" ends when Walter explains to Peter that he may be able to stop what has happened and return the alternate universe again. Peter enters the machine and fans witness his pulling the two universes together. Ending clearly with Peter vanishing before their eyes, we have two Walters, Olivias, and all others involved. They are strong in their belief that if they all work together they can have both universes continue to exist simultaneously.
Even though these members of "Fringe" don't realize Peter is gone, outside we find the Observers at the merged Statue of Liberty reflecting it origins. December states that he was right when he told September that they would not remember Peter. September agrees and states that they do not remember Peter because Peter has never existed now that he served his true purpose.
