Fox’s Fringe isn’t on this Friday, but here’s a little 60-second something to tide fans over: A teasey promo marking the full-on return of a familiar and forgotten, but not gone, face.
Sure, you get some recap and rehash — including Peter’s Jason Voorhees-like emergence from the bottom of a lake — but then the fresh footage kicks in. A strange man in possession of “a lot of classified information” (as Boyles frets) wants to see Walter. “He says his name is Peter Bishop,” Olivia warns Walter.
You then get the first father-son reunion, though it’s not so much “happy to see me” as “freaked the frak out!” It’s all a bit heartbreaking — or re-breaking for poor Walter, as the case may be.
Fringe resumes its fourth season on Friday, Oct. 28, at 9/8c.
