Fringe | Season 4 | Episode 2 | “One Night in October”
With some kind of cooperative agreement in place between the two Universes, Olivia-1 heads over to solve a crime that has been perplexing the Fringe-2 team for years. A watchable, tense episode ensues, with most plot threads tied up neatly.
The brain-cooling device is fairly over-the-top, the principal issue being the fluorescent liquid. Would our serial emotion-stealer really go to all the trouble of putting blacklights in his Evil Lair just to make the coolant look more futuristic? The heat exchanger looks appallingly inefficient as well – the liquid to be cooled should run through the middle of the cooling vanes, not on top of them (although then the audience couldn’t see it).
Our kidnapper is using sodium thiopental as an anaesthetic-cum-truth serum.
