‘Fringe’ Season 5 Preview: “The Recordist” Begins the Quest for the Tapes
It’s distressing to think that just in a few short weeks’ time, we will have seen the last of ‘Fringe,’ at least on television. But all good things must come to and end, and before they do, Walter and the Fringe team will have to complete the battle against the Observers! In order to do that however, the gang will need to find Walter’s mysterious tapes, a journey that will likely take them to all corners of the country. So what do the latest clips from “The Recordist” reveal, and why are we getting a ‘Lord of the Rings’ Vibe?
The quest is afoot, as Walter, Peter, Olivia, Astrid and Etta must find the series of tapes the mad ‘Fringe’ scientist left behind to complete his weapon against the Observer menace dominating the Earth. Tomorrow night’s “The Recordist” will take the gang deep into the forest as they track down their latest clue, and come face to face with a mysteriously afflicted group of people who may hold the key to our survival.
But before getting there, the gang will certainly have some surprises to discover as they liberate and watch the missing tapes! For one, footage from the first reveals that Walter…may not have been in his right mind when conducting their little operation.
Check out three all-new clips from Friday’s ‘Fringe’ episode “The Recordist” below, and tell us what you want to see in the comments? Will things play out as darkly as last week’s “In Absentia?”
