Heroes and Villains Across Series in Fringe

A literally hot lethal woman on Fringe tonight, who's infected with something that turns her into a vampire-like predator who picks up men to drink ... not their blood, but their spinal fluid. Not Twilight meets Spinal Tap, but the odds twists on horror and science fiction that is Fringe.

The deeper story, as always, is what is most of interest. Our predator became that way because ZFT - the teleporting and whatnot-producing terrorist organization - punished the woman's husband for not cooperating with them, and turned her into this nerve-wracking stalker.

We've seen ZFT before in this series, and next week we'll find out more about the secret revealed at the end of tonight's episode: William Bell, head of Massive Dynamics, is also a player in ZFT.

And that's not all we'll find out next week, or soon after. Leonard Nimoy, who will be making some sort of appearance in Star Trek (produced, as is Fringe, by J. J. Abrams), will be William Bell. So Zachary Quinto, who plays mostly bad guy Sylar on Heroes, will be playing the main, younger Spock on Star Trek, and Leonard Nimoy, who plays the bad in some way William Bell on Fringe, will reprise his classic Spock in the same new Star Trek. Nice mix of heroes and villains across series.

Meanwhile, back on Fringe, it looks as if the eternal bald observer will be teleporting into Walter's lab next week to collect him to go somewhere. But, don't forget, he has a cow...
