FRINGE FRIDAY - Series Finale Event


Well, this is it folks. Tonight is our last gathering as a fanbase with a new episode to watch...
It's all over tonight. Take this time to realize what we've been given as fans over the last 5 seasons...

There have been many questions asked and answered, but it looks as though everything that has led up to tonight's two hour finale was but a setup... Let's see if we can witness the story of the Fringe Division end with the carefully crafted and beguiling artistry that has defined it over the past 5 years.

I'll be the first to say that everything they tried in this show was practically made to either confound or antagonize fans of these brilliant characters -- everything from completely leaving them out of the spot light for entire half-seasons, to creating alternate realities, and even reseting time so that none of our experiences with these characters seemingly ever took place... but underneath it all, the myriad of realities still kept a hold over every single thing that has ever and will ever happen... A supermassive inter-weaving of time and space laden with so many moments both monumental and isolated in scope, it's simply bewildering that we were able to see it unwind over the course of an episode of television each week.

We've been through some trying times in the narrative of Fringe, including currently in the wake of multiple incredible shows of self-sacrifice for the prolonging of hope in spite of so much fear and destruction... What will we see happen in the end? We all know it will take at least 1 more act of sacrifice--namely by Walter Bishop himself--to end this nightmare that the world of 2036 finds itself in... I've a feeling his actions will reverberate even further than any previous act he's ever committed, in this universe or beyond.


In Fringe there are only endless impossibilities. Fate has no role in dictating the actions of humanity. We are not victims of our actions, but the ones acting, and ultimately we are responsible for our actions. You must do what you can to achieve what you will, and you must pursue your cause with passion and sound judgment, because you'll not get a chance to reset time to try everything over again.

Today's the special day where Fringe officially airs it's 99th and 100th episodes. Like most things Fringe-related, it is a clean episode count, ending probably 60 episodes past what most people thought would ever air in the first place. Fringe states not only in its narrative, but also in its very existence that the nature of things can always be defied. Fringe fought the nielsen ratings system for 4-5 years and still managed to end on its own terms with dwindling ratings.

I could probably rant on about every little thing that I love about this show, from its embracing of a Post-9/11 United States, to its inclusion in the Abrams over-arching saga (loving tie-ins with each of his projects reaching all the way back to Alias), but I'm going to have to cut off here, for fear of going on too long.

The stars really "aligned" for this show to have so much going for it that it overwhelmed and took down what was put against it... In true Abrams form, it defied television tropes and did what it wanted to, as long as it held true to the ultimate goal: which was to tell an unbelievable story rooted in the depiction of incredible characters often placed in situations both heartwarming and tragic... backed by a full house of producers, writers, musicians, and actors all indelible in their respective places.

Today's Topic: There is no topic... Comment on whatever you like...the floor is yours Fringe fanatics.

Here is the last update to the riveting and expansive Fringe Friday honorary playlist! Listen to it now to get ready for the end, as well as in the future to keep yourself inspired and remind you of this fantastic show!

As for me, this will likely be the very last Fringe Friday article I'll get to write. I hope that I was able to help add to your collective Fringe Fridays over the last year or so, because it was a fantastic opportunity for me to expose myself to others' opinions and theories that were always equally well-though-out and entertaining... You're probably the most charming and well-balanced fanbase that I've ever been a part of, and it's been great "serving" with you all through all the twists and turns.

Wilson, Signing off...

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
