Tonight is the beginning of the end, a too quick sprint toward the finale in this shortened season, a hopefully joyful, possibly heartbreaking (almost certainly both) end. Actually, the beginning really was last season's terrific "Letters of Transit," but "Tonight's 'Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11' is the continuation of the beginning of the end" doesn't roll off the tongue in quite the same way.
Actually, I've been bracing for this for a long time, since it started getting juggled around the schedule, was ignored by so many, and was continually passed over for Emmy nominations. Like Peter, it's as if the show doesn't exist...to all but us few. But I'm holding out hope that the people of Fringe, never ones to disappoint, will put more than everything they have into this final, no doubt breathtaking chapter, and maybe more will finally have no choice but to give in and give it the respect it deserves.I'll show my respect by watching the premiere with this t-shirt on. ;)
I'll also be tweeting with the hashtag #TheyAreHere and using one of these icons. You can read the Twitter event rules here.
