Fox's hit paranormal-investigation series Fringe had its moment on the stage at Comic-Con on Saturday, and when we got a chance to talk with stars Joshua Jackson and John Noble, they gave us a sneak peek at the storyline that's going to rip apart the characters in season two...
According to both Jackson and Noble, in season two the newfound relationship between the Bishops will be undermined by Walter's secret. (In case you tuned out late last season, Walter relocated an alternate-universe version of Peter to our world and "real" Peter is dead.)
Jackson told us, "Just when [Walter and Peter] get into some Fringe-y sense of a positive family dynamic, that secret is going to come out, and when it comes out, it can't help but shatter the dynamic between these two guys...That little child within Peter who's getting hurt is going to get really, really angry."
But Noble says we shouldn't expect the meltdown to happen right away. By Noble's reckoning, "There will be no answers early on. We don't want to let Peter in on that too early. I think it will be toward the second half of the season, I think it will be a massive episode and I think it will be very ugly."
On the other hand, Noble tells us that Walter and Astrid (Jasika Nicole) have a scene together early in the season, "and it's very sweet." The extremely endearing Jasika Nicole told us, "Astrid has this lovely sweet scene with Walter, and it's not just about the jokes and the one-liners. It was the chance for you to know a tiny bit more about her and their relationship and it was the greatest thing." Awww...
