A mysterious Fringe event causing people to spontaneously combust forces Walter to revisit his painful past while the Fringe team faces off against David Robert Jones to save the world, or worlds, in the all-new “Brave New World, Part 1 of 2” episode of FRINGE airing Friday, May 4 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (FR-421) (TV-14 D, L, V)

Cast: Anna Torv as Olivia Dunham; Joshua Jackson as Peter Bishop; John Noble as Walter Bishop; Lance Reddick as Phillip Broyles; Blair Brown as Nina Sharp; Jasika Nicole as Astrid Farnsworth; Seth Gabel as Lincoln Lee

Guest Cast: Jared Harris as David Robert Jones; LOST Actress Rebecca Mader To Guest In Finale As [SPOILER]" href="" target="_blank">Rebecca Mader as Jessica Holt

I liked “Endgame” as a title, but “Brave New World” seems more appropriate, particularly if those Season 5 rumblings are true. It might still represent an ‘endgame’ in some sense, but the story would continue.

Aside from being very similar to the old Fringe-Forum  tagline, BNW also speaks to Jones’ apparent plans to create a new realm from the ashes of the parallel universes — a plan that looks set to catch fire as the season boils to a dramatic climax (fingers crossed).

      Yes, but originally it is a dystopian novel from author Aldous Huxley. Set in London in 2540. Just type in Brave New World on Wikipedia and it will bring it right up.

      …and maybe (or hopefully for some) Kentucky Fried Lincoln — but this time it’ll be our one in the family bucket! Mmmm… Lincoln with the secret herbs and spices… 😉

    Brave New World though, I believe is the episode title when Heroes ended.

    But…. I still think it’s a positive sign for the series. We will get S5.

    hmmm…painful past…
    I wonder if we really get to see “why” Walter went insane. (Not satisfied with the tiny explanations :D)

    Combustible people! are we finally (maybe) going to find out more about the fire in Walter’s lab that resulted in the death of his assistant Carla? *happy dance* Is that what happened to the Brandon character — perhaps standing a bit too close to a bunsen burner in the Massive Dynamic lab.
