Fringe Discussion: “The Transformation”

After a were-porcupine causes a plane to crash, Agent Olivia Dunham must recover some borrowed memories so that the FBI can take down a band of bioterrorists.

Did I get that right? And did Anna Torv, usually a weak link in the series, rise to the occasion for this Dunham-centered episode?

    You got it right.

    Torv’s acting is definitely a lot less wooden in these new episodes than she was before the hiatus. I’m wondering if JJ told her to be a little looser in the way she acts.

    Also, the best part of this episode was twofold: 1) the bio terrorists didn’t appear to have a link to a Walter experiment and 2) his antidote for the virus failed miserably. It’s good to see the show becoming less about his experiments and more about weird science in the world.

      I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that she, and the actor who plays John Scott, got married last month.

      his antidote for the virus failed miserably.

      .

      Not to pick a fight, but there is a big difference between "worked temporarily, but wasn’t permanent on the first attempt" and "failed miserably"

      though I have no idea why I felt compelled to defend Walter… I guess that whackie guy is growing on me.

        Walter is just about my favorite part of the show.
