‘Fringe’s’ Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman tease two upcoming epic episodes
LA TV Insider Examiner
Fringe finally returns to FOX with an all-new episode this week, and “A Short Story About Love” is bound to be an extremely special one for the fans. Not only is it also directed by showrunner J.H. Wyman-- a rarity for a network series delivering a full season order for the year-- but it is the episode that will provide answers as to whether or not Peter (Joshua Jackson) is in the right universe after all.
When we caught up with Fringe cast and producers at WonderCon right here in Anaheim CA over the weekend, Jeff Pinkner wouldn’t answer which Fringe fan theory was correct about Peter and his idea of “home.” But he did promise that the answer will be revealed and will fit what the show has been saying all along.
“We’ve been saying it all along. The show [has been saying it]-- the show has not been lying,” Pinkner teased.
“The whole series has been about choices and impacts and how you impact others. For us there’s a couple of big things about that [paying off this season],” Wyman added.
“Number one, it just shows us that people really started to care about this Olivia. When we first went over to the other side, it was like ‘Oh, I’m never going to like these people!’ But now they love them. They fell in love with them like how we were in love with them.”
Series star John Noble said he really enjoyed the episode because it deals with the strange concept of being attracted to each other based on pheromones: “This particular event is about someone who uses this fact to create [attraction].” And Noble pointed out that Walter is quite intrigued by such a thing because “he loves smelling things and creating smells and digging around in bodies to find the reasons why.” So needless to say, Walter may be in heaven in the episode.
