When several cars stop working at a road to Vermont, followed by a plane crash, Olivia, Peter and Walter are assigned to investigate. On the return, Walter asks to stop at a diner to eat pie and they are attacked by the attendant that is killed by Olivia. They find most of the population dead and a wounded survivor called Cliff that explain that most people went crazy a couple of days ago. They meet a group of survivors and Walter concludes that people from both universes are merging in their doubles and they are trapped in the town. Only those that do not have double in Westfield have survived. But the greatest problem is that the town will be completely destroyed and only the center of the merged town will be a safe place.

Fringe has gone back to what makes it great!! The three main characters dominating the episode, Walter is back to himself and Olivia and Peter's relationship is building again. It's just like season 1 and 2. I was doubtful after the third season with the "alternates" and the new characters, that season 4 would be the same long story line, but no, I was thankfully wrong. Each episode has its own mini story line and some episodes, like this one, has no Alternates etc. I am looking forward to the rest of season 4. Gory, interesting and funny, FRINGE.IS.BACK! This episode is one of the greatest of this season and it finally makes me want to see more which I have not felt for the last season!
