From LA Examiner: 'Fringe' and 'GCB' Previews; WB WonderCon Panels Announced...


"Danielle Dishes (with a little help from Fringe EPs): "The End of All Things"

Last week's Fringe introduced a mega plot twist when it revealed Olivia (Anna Torv) to suddenly have all of the memories of Peter (Joshua Jackson)'s Olivia. They started out somewhat gradual, coming back in a dose of a case that the Walter (John Noble) and Astrid (Jasika Nicole) around her had not actually worked, but it culminated in actually feeling the emotions of the relationship with Peter. Before things could go too far, though, she disappeared, and "The End of All Things" picks up with Peter searching to bring her home-- to this home, as well as the reveal of who took her without getting the full scope of the why...

"Mid-Season Preview: ABC's GCB"

This may be the only time we ever advise you in such a way, but if you’re interested in the high-society story told in GCB, skip the novel and dive straight into ABC’s delicious new drama.

"Fringe's Blair Brown Q&A: Introducing "Meana" & more, post "End of All Things"

The February 24th episode of Fringe was its last for a few weeks, but with its in-depth introduction of a new Nina (Blair Brown) and reveal that Robert David Jones (Jared Harris) can move between worlds freely, and without being taken down by mere bullets, "The End of All Things" ended with a big question mark hanging over it. And without a new episode until late March, that kind of intrigue and mystery can be torturous. Thankfully, though, we had a chance to catch Brown over the phone to get her take on what we saw, and what we will (eventually) see... [MORE]
