Walter says that Sumerian is not his favourite ancient language, and he prefers Yiddish. Yiddish is far from being ancient, as it emerged in the Middle Ages as the conglomerate of Hebrew and High German, later incorporating some Polish and Russian vocabulary. Walter probably meant Hebrew that is indeed an ancient language. See more »
When the passenger of a plane turns into a huge porcupine-like beast, the Fringe Division is assigned to the case. Peter recalls the case from his timeline but there are differences between the events. Olivia has memories from the original timeline forgetting many cases and even her family details and Broyles forces her to take a leave. However she secretly helps Peter and Lincoln in the investigation. She recalls the name of Bowman's partner, Daniel Hicks, and they head to his house. But Hicks has already transformed in a beast and injures Lincoln. Walter finds that he is infected by the mysterious virus and needs to find a means to save him. Meanwhile Peter and Olivia proceeds their investigation.
"Nothing as It Seems" is an episode based on "The Transformation" with many modifications. It is good to see Peter and Olivia using their memories from the other timeline to help in the resolution of the case. The conclusion is intriguing with the creatures locked in cages in the hold of a ship. My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): "Nothing as It Seems"
