Tonight's all-new episode of Fringe is a major reset for the series (cocreator Roberto Orci tells me, "We call tonight the '09 pilot"), and it sets the stage for some major revelations in the latter half of the season.
Among other things, Orci hints that there are some seriously shocking revelations in store about Olivia Dunham's (Anna Torv) past and her connections to the Bishop family...
According to Orci, "You'll find out that Olivia is connected to their trio in a way she didn't know—she's encountered Walter Bishop (John Noble) before."
For reals? How so? Could she be Peter's (Joshua Jackson) secret sister? Was she part of some demented Bishop experiment in the vein of Project Christmas? What's going on here?
"Those are the right questions to be asking," says Orci.
Fine then, until further evidence comes to light, I'm irresponsibly surmising that Olivia is Walter's bastard love child by Nina Sharp (Blair Brown).
OK, that might be a bit much, but Orci does spill, "You're going to have Massive Dynamic's position in their lives change a little bit. Massive Dynamic is going to come clean with Olivia about a few things coming up, things that will make you question again whether they are of evil intent or whether there is something more going on in that company."
Any theories on Olivia's connection to Walter? How about Massive Dynamic's intentions toward Olivia?
