Walter-2 instructs Broyles-2.

It seems that Earth-2 has just as many Fringe Event oddities as Earth-1, with a future-predicting outpatient killing people this week. The episode, while fun to watch, was largely science-free, underscoring season three’s focus on story.

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