‘Fringe’ Teases the Endgame, Releases Season Finale Clips
Above all else, 'Fringe' loves you. That's why even on the heels of the news that the cult sci-fi hit had already been renewed for a fifth and final season consisting of 13 episodes, the wheel never stops turning. Fresh featurettes detailing the end of the season, and three new clips from "Brave New World" await you!
Tonight begins the first hour of 'Fringe's two-part season finale "Brave New World," in which the dastardly plots of David Robert Jones ('Mad Men's Jared Harris) come to a head in his efforts to destroy both universes, re-making another in his own image. The previous episode "Worlds Apart" saw the Fringe team putting a temporary stopgap in his plans by closing the door between either parallel universe, but Bishop knows, you just can't keep a good scientist down!
Somehow David Robert Jones has figured out a way to move on with his universe-collapsing plans regardless, tying back to some very old cases Walter Bishop has intimate knowledge of. And while that's all very well and good, how will it tie into that trippy Observer-controlled future-verse we saw in "Letters of Transit?" Are we tabling that until next season? From the official episode descriptions:
May 4: “Brave New World, Part 1 of 2″ (Season Finale, Part 1)
In the first of a thrilling two-part season finale, a mysterious Fringe event causing people to spontaneously combust forces Walter to revisit his painful past, while the Fringe team faces off against David Robert Jones (guest star Jared Harris) to save the world, or worlds.
May 11: “Brave New World, Part 2 of 2″ (Season Finale, Part 2)
In the climactic conclusion of the Season 4 finale, the Fringe team is pushed to their breaking point as they desperately attempt to prevent a catastrophic event that threatens the lives of everyone.
In order to help fill the gap, FOX has released a brand new featurette all about "The Endgame," which teases not only the finale, but a number of burning questions and fan-service moments 'Fringe' viewers have been longing to see! Check it out below:
It doesn't end there however, as we've snagged three new clips from tonight's first installment "Brave New World, Part 1!" In it you'll see that Olivia (Anna Torv) has a somewhat cryptic request for Peter (Joshua Jackson), while Walter Bishop (John Noble) investigates a somewhat-familiar case that introduces us to the character played by 'LOST's Rebecca Mader!
Check out the three clips below, and be sure to watch the final episodes of 'Fringe, Friday nights at 9:00 p.m. on FOX!
