Fringe Stars Say Peter Is the Season’s Big Mystery
It’s a very good day for Fringe fans. After hours weeks of contemplating last season’s finale, Fringe returns and we went to series stars John Noble and Anna Torv for the answers to all our big questions.
The biggest one of all: Will Peter (Joshua Jackson) be back?
The answer of course is: Yes!
John Noble who plays both Walter Bishops, keep following us here, says: “I can answer the question that Josh Jackson will be back, that’s what everyone wants to know. We’ve done some really beautiful work so far this season.” Beautiful work you say, John? That is music to our sci-fi loving ears.
After last season’s finale, and the 10 minutes we spent staring at our televisions wondering what the heck just happened, our biggest concern was for Peter Bishop. Where is he? What happened to him? How do we exist in a world that has no Peter Bishop? Do we even want to? OK we admit it, we had a lot of concerns. Fear not. Torv explains, “Peter is the mystery this season.”
The good news is, we may be down one Peter, but we do get a double dose of our favorite awesome agent, Olivia. Torv says: “Well, what I was super excited about, and we’ve done a few little bits and pieces, is seeing my two characters interacting with each other.” And do they ever.
How is Walter handling his new Peter-less life? Not well. Not well at all. Noble tells us: “He’s mad. Seriously, because he doesn’t have anyone to love him. He’s mad.” Sad panda. We think Walter needs a hug and a milkshake and of course Peter back pronto. Sadly, without Peter, Walter doesn’t even want to leave the lab.
Noble says, “Eventually he has to sneak out for a reason or two, but no, he doesn’t want to leave the lab. He’s scared of everything, poor old fella—and bad-tempered.” We can only hope Peter comes back soon, the merged universes can bridge the gap and save humanity. And did we say we hope Peter comes back soon?
