Chuck vs. the Frosted Tips
They decide using Casey to hit on Verbanski (guest, Carrie Ann Moss) is a good idea. It doesn't go incredibly well but he does plant a bug on her so he can see what she's doing. It's adorable that he's doing recon before asking her out.
|Oh Morgan, no. Just no.|
Sarah adds things up and, with help from Ellie, realizes that the intersect, which was not sent to them by the CIA, is an odd version and messing with Morgan at his core. Both teams show up to pull off Beckman's job and end up fighting each other and miss that the target is just about to get away. A fire breaks out but Chuck and Casey save Morgan and Verbanski (respectively) and they split the profits.
Casey is headed out for a date with Verbanski and his pre-date ritual is choosing which guns to bring with him. Heh.
|Nothing like being armed and in love|
Oh and Awesome found himself fixing Jeff by just telling him to stop sleeping in his van, which he has to keep running all the time because if he turns it off it won't go back on again AND leaks exhaust into the van itself. He shows up for work looking as normal as Jeff can and Lester is beyond perplexed. What does this mean for Jeffster?
|Do Not Want!|
Stuff happens, people face off, the queen bee dies but not before giving Nick a warning that something bad is coming. Oooooo! Also, did you guys notice that women are quite often the victims on this show? There was the one dude last week getting hunted but his girlfriend was a victim too.
Fringe "And Those We Left Behind"
This was a very science-y episode with tons of heart and passion. Truly this is a great show. Too bad no one watches it.
Peter is having a very sweet dream about a perfect day with Olivia in a park while Walter is on the swings. Awww, sooo cute! He wakes and I'm sad because that's not the relationship any of them have anymore.
There have been problems with time since Peter has shown up. These weird flashy things occur with noticeable time anomalies. They're even trying to use tech from the other universe which is kind of cool to see there's some sharing going on. Peter's with Olivia and Lincoln at the sites of the anomalies but he's and experiencing his own time shifts. Walter still wants to pretend that Peter doesn't exist so that's making things a bit awkward.
Stephen Root shows and I get excited. Apparently the woman playing his wife in this episode is his real life wife and not really Finn's mom from Glee. Huh. Anywhoodle, she is a theoretical physiscist messing with time/space equations and is close to figuring it all out. Suddenly we get a time shift and she's gone, not physically but mentally. She's in a different room and totally zoned out in a chair while he brings her tea (maybe coffee; I didn't get a good look inside the cup). So my spidey senses tell me this is the root (get it? Like Stephen Root?) of the time anomalies and it's happening because her mind is lost to Alzheimers or dimension or both. Poor thing.
Walter figures out the pattern of the location of the time anomalies and locate the house where Stephen Root has built a basement full of computers and computer stuff all based on his wife's work. The fringe team need to stop them because if they don't a ton of people will die in a tunnel that wasn't there 4 years ago. Peter suggests using a Farraday cage to get through the time bubble covering their house and I smile because A) I actually know what a Farraday cage is and B) Farraday always makes me think of Lost. Oh Lost. If only I were blogging you... Where was I? Turns out Walter has a Farraday harness (of course he does) that should get Peter through the bubble but could turn him into confetti once on the other side. Also it's worth noting that Root is such a versatile and totally underrated actor. Peter makes it through and does not turn to confetti. Yay! He gets in the house and wanders down to the basement where he explains the situation to the good folks causing all the problems. The husband wasn't thinking of the bigger picture and had no idea it'd be causing so many problems for everyone else in the world. The wife however, in a state of lucidity 'cause it's like 4 years ago for them at that moment, says something about their always being repercussions and gets a look on her face that you know isn't good news for her husband who just wants his mentally capable wife back. This is nice because usually the people they're trying to stop have such intense focus and can't be dissuaded. He would have continued it no matter how many people he killed but the wife cares too much. Good for her. She lets him think she's finishing the equation but really she's redacting all her work so he can't rebuild it. Bummer.
Oh and Olivia and Peter have a brief but sweet conversation about what she meant to him in the place he came from. For the longest time I thought he was where he came from but that the Observers screwed everything up by removing him. Now I'm not sure that we're not in a third universe. They have two, why not add another?
