FRINGE Producers Drop Season 3 Finale Spoilers
DEATH! Delicious, strawberry-flavored death!
According to TV Line, Fringe executive producers Jeff Pinkner and Joel Wyman dropped a major spoiler for the upcoming season 3 finale, "The Day We Died," scheduled to air on FOX on May 6th.
In a conference call to reporters, Pinkner revealed that "Someone who we all love deeply will die" in the season finale. Added Wyman, "Fringe always does things the way you don't expect, so it's going to be effective, and it will be self-explanatory. That's sort of all we can say without spoiling everything."
Pinkner later remarked, "Hopefully, it will be wholly unexpected and it will recontextualize the story of Season 3 in a really cool way, and be fun and entertaining and mind-blowing."
However, the season finale will not feature a long-rumored third universe. “We are not introducing a third world,” said Pinkner. “We still have plenty of story to tell just in those two worlds. Maybe at some point in the future there will be a third world, but not yet.”
The executive producers for the recently-renewed science-fiction drama also hinted at the return of Leonard Nimoy's William Bell in some form or another. “William is present,” Pinkner remarked, “and in a way that gives new meaning to alternate reality, but its very much Leonard Nimoy.”
My personal guess for the character who dies? Well, since killing off a character as great as Walter Bishop would be ratings suicide for Season 4, I think I'll go with...Astrid Farnsworth.
