Walter prepares to put on a show.

Walter prepares to put on a show.

In the first part of a two-part finale, Walter and a small team cross over to the Other Side to get Peter back. The wince-inducing mixture of psychic powers and multiverse-crossing aside, this was another enjoyable episode.

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

Random thoughts

It’s always nice to see airships in an alternate future/universe, but Earth-2 might be lagging behind a little on aerodynamics technology – modern airships take advantage of dynamic lift as well as lighter-than-air gas, and have short wings.

Neither option is particularly plausible, Brandon, but either our cells would separate on a cellular level, or our atoms would separate on an atomic level. And where did that cup go that you hit? Even if intermolecular forces could be nullified, we would still be left with some kind of ultrafine powder.
