Worried that this upcoming second season finale of FRINGE can’t possibly top last May’s Oh-no-they-didn’t just reveal that Olivia and William Bell were perched atop a very-much-still-intact World Trade Center in the alternate universe jaw dropper? Don’t be.
“It blew my mind when I read it,” revealed Lance Reddick of this May’s upcoming two-part season ender during a conversation with the TV Addict on a recent visit to the set of FRINGE. “On the second-to-last page I was shocked and when I got to the last page, I was floored! I was like, ‘No… to the point where I was like please no, please no, don’t you have that be it’”
Of course, the big question remaining is what exactly “it” is. Not surprisingly, the actor behind Agent Phillip Broyles, who let’s face it, has learned a thing-or-two about keeping quiet thanks to a short, albeit highly scrutinized stint on LOST as the mysterious Matthew Abaddon, wasn’t quite willing to elaborate (“In order to explain what “it” is I’d have to tell you what “it” is… sorry.”) Except to cryptically reveal that, “It’s going to be more crazy [than last season] because of how attached…. it has more to do with character.”
Unfortuantely, ‘character’ can mean a lot of things. And while we’re not quite sure whether or not Reddick is referring to an unexpected character addition that would certainly add fuel to the fire that are the rumors of yet another alternate universe, or Michael Ausiello’s claim that the finale will bring with it a shocking character death, of this we are sure: By the time the credits roll, FRINGE fans will already be counting down the days its return.
