Later this month, Fringe will return for its fifth and final season, which will see our heroes transported forward in time to 2036, where they will have to topple the Observer regime that has taken over the earth. It's a rather major departure from previous seasons of the series, the thirteen-episode final season promises to be a rewarding payoff to the beloved sci-fi series.
But where's Olivia?
When we first visited the dystopian future of 2036 in season 4's episode "Letters of Transit," the leader of the Fringe team, Agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv), was nowhere to be found. Her daughter, Etta (Georgina Haig) was able to extract Peter (Joshua Jackson), Walter (John Noble), and Astrid (Jasika Nicole) from amber, but there was no Olivia. Searching for her will be the focus of the show's season 5 premiere, “Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11."
A new photo from the episode, released by TVLine, shows Peter, Astrid, and Etta searching through a wall of amber, from which several human-sized chunks have been extracted. Is one of them Olivia? Probably. After all, a season 5 promo has already revealed that Olivia is in amber somewhere. Where, of course, remains to be be seen.
Executive producer J.H. Wyman recently revealed that the final episode of Fringe would air Friday, February 1, 2013.
