The non-science of Fringe: Bloodline

Fringe : Season 3 : Episode 18 : “Bloodline”

Walternate fills the Fringe-2 team in on some state secrets.

Walternate fills the Fringe-2 team in on some state secrets.

In finest soap opera tradition, Olivia-2 will have her baby before the season finishes irrespective of how much time a pregnancy normally takes. They accelerated it with SCIENCE!

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

Random thoughts

Not a lot to talk about this week, from a science perspective at least. Is it safe to use a Taser on a pregnant woman? I assume that Walternate would want to take every possible precaution to prevent damage to his grandson. Also, Olivia-2’s baby managed to grow to full term with no apparent input of mass (a stumble we’ve seen a few times before on Fringe).
