There is going to be a new episode of “Fringe” airing on Friday night, but before we really delve too deep into this, let’s take a look into something a little bit different: what is going to be coming our way months in the future courtesy of series star Anna Torv.
Speaking per TVLine, the actress (who is wrongfully robbed of an Emmy nomination time and time again, at least according to some of the show’s diehard fans) did her best to explain how the medium of television is something where creating an ending that does not involve massive heartbreak is important, especially when you have viewers who have literally spent more than several days of their lives watching the show over the years:
“In film, you can have sad endings – like, ‘Oh well, it could’ve been’ – but with television you put so much time into these people that when you do finally say goodbye, you should be satisfied. Not necessarily happy, but not heartbroken. … Then again, this is Fringe. We’ve sort of turned things on their head the whole way through.”
How do we see this series ending? We’re almost too afraid to make a guess at this point, but we are almost hoping for something subtle rather than bombastic and over-the-top. Despite this being a sci-fi show with such a rich mythology, it is the moment of John Noble’s Walter crying in a car that means more to us than the elaborate action scenes or the effects created by the Observers.
