FRINGE: Henry Ian Cusick Teases ‘Life & Death’ Episode

lost-desmond

When Desmond said: “I’ll see you in another life, brotha,” his sure wasn’t joking. Ahead of his appearance in Friday’s “Letters Of Transit,” Henry Ian Cusick teases his visit to the Fringe.

Spoilers for 4.19 follow. Stop reading now if you don’t want to know anything about the episode!

In Friday’s much buzzed-about installment, LOST alum Cusick plays a Fringe agent in 2036, desperate to fight back against the totalitarian-esque Observer rule. As for what Cusick is able to tease about his role? Not much, but:

“I can tell you that I do most of my scenes with Georgina and John Noble, who is a phenomenal actor, and it was a great experience.”

Describing the storyline, Cusick said:

“It’s similar to Lost in that it’s high-stakes life-and-death stuff… a very exciting episode to work on.”

While many a seriable heart sank at the possibility of a ‘departure episode’ that does little for the overarching story at a crucial point in the season, recent Intel. suggests the episode will open a seriable door into the potential fifth season.

But does this open a hatch for Cusick to return?:

“That show is like LOST in that it can go any which way, so yes.”

“Letters Of Transit” premieres Friday, April 20 @9/8c on FOX

    Mmm.. well we don’t know that as yet Roco – it’s entirely possible that this episode will show what will happen if events unfold in a certain way.

    If the information about the future is somehow projected into the past, as it was with Peter in the finale of season three, it’ll be vital to enable the present Fringe team to avoid a totalitarian future of baldies.

    Then it’ll be a key plot element.

        I am so excited for Henry Ian Cusick! I just wish it was in a way that he could be recurring because that would be EPIC. *_*

        Yes I did read that, but as far as I can tell, Roco meant it opens up a way forward for season 5, but may not be relevant to season 4.

        What I meant is that it may impact profoundly on how the present Fringe team behaves for the rest of season 4. This would only be the case if information about future events is relayed to our present team.

        I know it sound like splitting hairs a bit, but it isn’t if you think about it.

          “Yes I did read that, but as far as I can tell, Roco meant it opens up a way forward for season 5, but may not be relevant to season 4.”

          @Underseer, just to clarify – I meant both — in that it apparently opens a door into Season 5, and could therefore be relevant to the overarching story.

          Hopefully it wont disappoint in this respect, as expectations seem pretty high.
