SPOILERS ON THE EPISODE!
[ Show ][ Hide ]
A mysterious man involved in a downtown Manhattan collision with a SUV flees the scene to a nearby apartment building. He enters the building and attacks Lloyd Parr, hooking up equipment to the man’s inner mouth, which allows him to adopt his external appearance and shapeshift. The crashed SUV is discovered to be Olivia Dunham’s, though she is not inside. Peter Bishop and Walter Bishop arrive and investigate the scene while being accosted by a new junior agent, Amy Jessup, who wonders what they do for the FBI. After Walter searches through the SUV, he shuts the door and Olivia is suddenly ejected through the windshield. She is rushed to the hospital and declared brain dead.
Peter and Phillip Broyles drink at a bar together in sorrow, and Broyles reveals the Fringe Division is being shut down because of their failure to provide “usable results”. Suspicious and curious of Fringe Division, Jessup begins a personal investigation into their past activities. After talking to Rachel Blake about her sister, Peter visits Olivia, who is scheduled to be taken off life support the following morning. However, Olivia suddenly wakes up, crying the Greek phrase Einai kalytero anthropo apo ton patera toy. She does not remember getting injured, and incoherently tells Peter there is something they need to do, and their “lives may depend on it,” but cannot remember who told her this, or why. Peter tries to enter the FBI building, but is denied until Jessup agrees to accompany him. She questions him about Fringe Division, and they begin investigating the driver who hit Olivia and discover his name is George Reed. When they arrive at his apartment, they discover what appears to be the driver’s body, but he had died before the accident took place. The shapeshifted man makes contact with his group via typewriter, and is told his mission to prevent a “meeting” was unsuccessful, as Olivia is still alive. He is told to interrogate her, and then kill her. Meanwhile, Peter introduces Jessup to their lab at Harvard, and upon performing an autopsy on the man found in the apartment, they find three holes in the roof of his mouth. Walter shows them archived footage of one of his 1970s experiments of a drugged up Rebecca Kibner who says she sees shapechanging soldiers from an parallel universe that can “look like any of us”.
After being visited by her partner, Agent Charlie Francis, and given a gun, Olivia is unsuccessfully questioned by the shapeshifter, who has adopted the appearance of a female nurse. The nurse attempts to kill Olivia, but is shot and flees from Jessup. Peter, Charlie, and Jessup follow her into nearby tunnels, but the nurse manages to kill Charlie and secretly shapeshift into him. Peter returns to Olivia, and tells her the Greek phrase means “Be a better man than your father,” and was told to him every night by his mother.
After being told by a panel of Senators that Fringe is not worth the human or fiscal cost, Broyles is given the transformation device by Peter so Broyles can justify Fringe Division remaining active. The final scene shows the shapeshifted Charlie disposing of the real agent’s body.

Olivia and Peter investigate a series of strange disappearances. Olivia hears and sees things from the alternate Universe but fails to realize Charlie isn’t really Charlie.
SPOILERS ON THE EPISODE!
[ Show ][ Hide ]
After three weeks, Olivia Dunham is finally ready to check out of the hospital. Upon her leaving, the Shape-shifter who is impersonating Charlie Francis watches her go, whose assignment is to get Olivia to confide in him about what happened with William Bell. Walter Bishop has been investigating her disappearance and still can’t explain what happened to her during the time she went missing from her car accident and when she flew through the window. One thing is for sure: she came back with heightened senses that help her to solve the latest fringe case. Olivia jumps right back in — ready or not.
When Raymond, a construction worker, goes missing in Pennsylvania, our Fringe team arrives on the scene following a lead that this is the seventh disappearance with the same circumstances. While investigating, Walter secures some blue goop, while Peter talks the brusque local Sheriff, C. Howard Golightly, into releasing the town’s citizen files into his and Olivia’s possession.
Later, Walter discovers the blue goop he collected at the crime scene is both a paralytic and partially comprised of human DNA. Meanwhile, while reviewing the townspeople’s files, Olivia ties one man to the scene all of the disappearances: Andre Hughes, formerly a doctor.
Peter Bishop and Olivia head back to Pennsylvania to question Andre. Olivia swears she hears someone else breathing in the house. After she’s checked the house for others unsuccessfully, they eventually bring Andre in for questioning. Andre reveals an important bit of information — his wife died giving birth to their child some years ago. But even as Andre further convinces our team of his innocence, he refuses to let them draw his blood so that they can see if his DNA matches that found in the blue goop. This refusal makes our team suspicious. Later, in his cell, Andre crafts a noose out of the mesh lighting wire and hangs himself.
Let’s not forget, while attempting to solve a case, Olivia is STILL recovering from her accident. During a follow-up visit with her doctor, Nina Sharp shows up recommending that Olivia see a specialist to help her recover after everything she’s been through. Olivia accepts the card of a Sam Weiss, whom Nina thinks can help Olivia.
At Walter’s request, the team exhumes the graves of Eve Line and Baby Boy Hughes only to discover that the baby boy has burrowed his way out of his grave. Back at the lab, Walter performs an autopsy on Eve Line’s remains only to discover she had advanced Lupus — a disease that would have prevented her from having children. Walter determines that Andre, a former doctor, altered his baby in the womb so that it could survive in spite of its mother’s Lupus. The baby somehow survived. Olivia tells them that she is certain she heard someone in Andre’s house when they were there earlier.
At Andre’s house, Olivia and Peter search the house and eventually make their way to the basement where they find a tunnel (like the one we saw burrowed under Baby Boy Hughes’ coffin) in the wall. As Peter searches for a shovel, Olivia is attacked! She is dragged violently into the tunnel by the sickly looking man-creature, where we find our victim from the beginning and Officer Golightly.
Peter comes to the rescue and wounds Baby Boy Hughes, who attempts to burrow his way out, only to collapse the driveway. A car comes crashing down, crushing the wretched man-creature. When a swarm of FBI agents arrive later, they discover a number of bear traps. Andre knew he was responsible for the killings and was trying to capture his son before he took more lives.
Back at her apartment, Olivia relaxes in a hot bath. She begins to hear things again, but this time it’s worse. She can hear everything: an insect as it crawls along her windowsill, drips from faucets, bubbles popping, neighbors speaking, bugs flying, traffic, the disturbing hum of the overhead lights. This is enough to force her to take Nina’s recommendation about Sam Weiss.
Olivia shows up at a bowling alley, where Sam Weiss works. He’s been waiting for her…
Charlie returns to the mysterious typewriter shop to get his latest instructions. The typewriter sends him a message that reads, DO SOMETHING TO HELP OLIVIA REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED.
