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).
