- Peter's not quite missing, or not missing enough, from both universes - according to the Eternal Bald Observers, who say traces of him are still leaking through. Accordingly, the EBO who helped Walter kidnap Peter from the alternate reality, and whom we best know, is tasked by his superior with erasing Peter more thoroughly. To do this, he will need parts from a 1950s television (literally supporting my view that Fringe is in part composed of and inspired by 1950s science fiction - see my essay below).
- There's tense cooperation between the two universes (which I sometimes call two realities). But Olivia does not trust Fauxlivia, and her distrust seems warranted by a new attack of the shapeshifters.
- Lincoln Lee, one of the best characters on the other side - whom we saw briefly (or we briefly saw his counterpart) last season on this side, is now becoming Olivia's partner (though I suppose he could be really alternate Lee, undercover here)
- We see the effects on this side of Peter the adult never having existed - especially on Walter, who's nuttier than he was last year and the year before, under Peter's helpful tutelage.
