More out-of-body experiences in this episode, with the usual Fringe trappings of drug-induced trances and brain scans. The usual medical impossibilities and plot deficiencies aside (which are reported on better elsewhere), this episode contained very little worth commenting on. Check back soon!

This episode is debunked at Popular Mechanics and Polite Dissent, and you can read more about it at Fox, IMDb and the A.V. Club.

Random thoughts

Hey, is that a shell casing? A clue! Absolutely no chance it could have fingerprints or anything on it, so I’ll just pick it up.

It seems that when FBI agents are sent out to apprehend young people, they are routinely armed with tranquiliser darts. Adults get shot at with regular bullets, of course.
