I’ve seen things that people only dream about. I’ve seen… the seams between universes ripped apart. Things that humans shouldn’t see. People make up explanations… assign meaning to things without knowing, because it’s reassuring. It’s comforting. But I can’t do that… because I know too much.

Of course it’s the way you expected it to end, like happily ever after. That’s what’s beautiful, these people don’t live in the real world. They live in your minds, and they live in your imagination, and the reason you watch shows is so that you can hope. And I think that at the end of the day that was what Joel [Wyman] was trying to say… is that, there is h o p e.
This episode is such a wonderful way to show us how much Peter loves Walter. We know he does, of course…but is the first time he is so open about how much he worries, how much the thought of losing his father hurts him. Olivia realizes this. That’s why she looks so worried, why she observes Peter so closely…because losing Walter could potentially destroy Peter.
And later, when the truth comes out, is because of this love that Peter forgives him.
Don’t mind my ramblings, lots of feels as always because of Fringe.
