We learn more about Peter. Not much, but enough to see he has some kind of odd, dangerous storyline. The question is how much of it intersects with Walter's and Olivia's - and we're still not sure how much Olivia's and Walter's coincide.
Meanwhile, Walter showed himself, again, to be a decent, more than decent, human being. He tells Olivia no one loves playing with drugs, on himself and other people, more than he - but he needs more time, to work out a safer method for her unsort the fused memories she now has of John and her. Unusually and bracingly sane for a mad scientist.
Memories made real were the cutting edge of tonight's story, which started out with razor-winged butterflies and ended with a knife to the throat, all served up in the brain in some way by Massive Dynamics.
I have a soft spot for butterflies - my family likes, them, too - and when the kids were young we'd plant milkweed to attract the monarchs. We even raised a few, and eventually they flew off to Mexico or who knows where. It was nice. My novel, The Silk Code, also had a butterfly connection.
I'm not sure, exactly, what this has to do with tonight's Fringe.... Wait, I know, it has to do with memories.
More next week.
