There are just a few more days until the “Fringe” Season 5 premiere, but in the meantime, FOX has released a new extended promo — approved for all members of the Resistance, of course. In the trailer, we see a happily married Peter and Olivia hanging out with their daughter Etta in the park, circa 2015.
And then the Observers show up, “without warning” (uh, except for that “They are coming” warning that September gave Walter in the Season 4 finale) — and we see the look of horror on Peter’s face as he screams for Etta.
Do we really need to tell you guys that this doesn’t end well? After Peter and Olivia were separated from their daughter and the Observers closed in on our world, everything went to hell, from the government to the relationships we’ve seen developed over the course of four seasons. When they’re reunited again in 2036 in the season premiere, things between them have changed. To say the least, they’re no longer wearing those wedding rings we see in the 2015 portion of this promo.
Tune in Sept. 28 at 9 p.m. for the beginning of the end. In the meantime, if you’re a little behind on the show, you can watch “Letters of Transit” — the most important Season 4 episode — on the FOX website. But act fast; it’ll only be available until Friday.
