Double référence dans une seule image : twin peaks (Walter porte les lunettes du Docteur Jacoby) et Back to the future (le comédien qui lui tient la réplique est le "doc" Emmet Brown ! et son fils voyage dans le futur depuis l'année 1985).

Essa reação em cadeia, que inclusive, seria efeito vaga-lume, devo dizer, demorei para entender, mas tudo foi tão muito bem calculado e pavimentado que fiquei atônito no final com o resultado. E quando September começou a falar para Walter do acidente do Lago Reiden, do vaga-lume e da garotinha no verão de 1986, e mais tarde quando Roscoe começou a falar do filho que perdeu num acidente de carro, as conexões vieram como um flash na minha mente e comecei a entender tudo. Ao que parece, Walter entendeu que toda essa reação em cadeia foi feita para que evitasse que ele morresse, mas a verdade é que isso foi um teste feito pelos Observadores, para entender se o Walter seria capaz perder o Peter novamente. E eu me recuso! Quando eu penso que estou entendendo o plano dos Observadores (ou pelo menos tentando entender), aí vem eles com um plano muito maior e me deixa cheio de perguntas.

E é isso que eu quero entender, minha maior pergunta é saber qual o sentido de tudo isso e porque envolve o Peter. Às vezes, eu começo a teorizar e chego a conclusão de que ele será um tipo de sacrifício para unificar as realidades (Teoria do Vácuo?) ou então corrigir o percurso dos eventos e das coisas desde que o Walter abriu o portal. Mas como será isso? É tudo tão incerto, uma incógnita que ainda não foi descoberta, que ainda nem sabemos para quem eles realmente trabalham, e se antes eu tinha uma percepção altruísta sobre eles agora eu não tenho mais essa certeza. No mais, o capítulo foi sensacional. É muito difícil se desapontar quando são explorados os Observadores e viagens no tempo, é sempre novas descobertas e perguntas, e isso é o que há de melhor, esse mindblowing que brinca com nós. É perfeito!

Nota: O que o Observador quis dizer quando ele disse para Peter, "Deve ser difícil...ser um pai"? Por que Roscoe chama Astrid de Kelly? O que significa aquela tatuagem no pulso de September? O capítulo traz algumas referências culturais, entre elas uma menção honrosa a Twin Peaks causada pelos os óculos coloridos de Walter e a outra é o livro que Peter dá à Olivia, na qual recorre a imperfeição da realidade, onde o título sugere uma metáfora que o caminho para a iluminação, no qual parece correto, deve estar errado e, consequentemente, evitado.

This chain reaction, which would even be firefly effect, I must say, it took me a while to understand, but everything was so well calculated and paved that I was stunned at the end with the result. And when September started talking to Walter about the Reiden Lake accident, the firefly and the little girl in the summer of 1986, and later when Roscoe started talking about the son he lost in a car accident, the connections came like a flash in the My mind and I began to understand everything. It seems that Walter understood that all this chain reaction was made to prevent him from dying, but the truth is that this was a test done by the Observers to see if Walter would be able to lose Peter again. And I refuse! When I think that I am understanding the plan of the Observers (or at least trying to understand), here they come with a much larger plan and leave me full of questions.

And that's what I want to understand, my biggest question is to know the meaning of it all and why it involves Peter. Sometimes I begin to theorize and come to the conclusion that it will be a kind of sacrifice to unify the realities (Vacuum Theory?) Or else correct the course of events and things since Walter opened the portal. But how will that be? It's all so uncertain, an unknown that has not yet been discovered, that we do not even know for whom they actually work, and if before I had an altruistic perception about them now I'm not sure anymore. In addition, the chapter was sensational. It is very difficult to be disappointed when the Observers and time travels are explored, it is always new discoveries and questions, and that is what is best, that mindblowing that plays with us. It's perfect!

Note: What the Observer meant when he said to Peter, "Must it be difficult ... to be a father"? Why does Roscoe call Kelly Astrid? What does that tattoo on September's wrist mean? The chapter brings some cultural references, including an honorable mention of Twin Peaks caused by Walter's colorful glasses and the other is Peter's book for Olivia, in which he resorts to the imperfection of reality, where the title suggests a metaphor that the Path to enlightenment, in which it seems correct, must be wrong and therefore avoided.

L'attore di Ritorno al Futuro, ecco perché aveva un viso familiare!
Ogni volta che ci sono questi osservatori mi viene l'ansia e questa volta sul serio ho temuto che Peter morisse...

Actor Back to the Future, which is why he had a familiar face!
Whenever there are these observers comes anxiety and this time I seriously feared that Peter would die ...

September, you are such a dramatic Observer. All of that just to test his experiment that Walter would be willing to let Peter die and that when the time comes, he will be willing to do it again. I'm just kidding about the first sentence. This was an awesome episode and rife with mythology and introduced even more questions as to what the Observers are doing and why they're doing these things.

I'm not sure if the series of events that September triggered here was him trying to course-correct things when he saved Walter and Peter...or maybe he put both Bishops in the path of that woman he saved at the jewelry store so that Walter will be there to save her. Hmm. Maybe this was September's way of saving someone else when he failed to see Roscoe's son's death just because Peter caught a firefly and causing a ripple effect that led to Bobby's death.

That conversation between Walter and the Observer was illuminating and his story about the firefly was pretty cool. However small our actions, there will always be consequences, even minor, and we rarely think about these things because the consequences are of no consequence to us. Just think about one decision in your life that you've made and imagine what would have happened if you made a different decision. How would your life be different now? It's maddening to think that way, but at the same time, it's quite fascinating to imagine how life would be like if only you did that instead of that.

"There are things that I know, but there are things that I do not know. Various possible futures are happening simultaneously. I can tell you all of them, but I cannot tell you which one of them will come to pass. Because every action causes ripples. Consequences both, obvious and unforeseen."

Even the Observer can't predict the future because there are too many possibilities and he doesn't have the capacity to predict what people would decide on their own until they've done so and even then, he can only see so far into the future before he gets stuck again. This is actually very reminiscent of the plot of the movie Arrival, in a sense. Don't worry, I won't spoil the movie here.

And what was with Peter ingesting the milk that Walter was going to drink and test it for himself? Was this also part of September's plan, to put Peter's life at risk while saving Walter? Walter did say that if he drank that milk, he probably would have died and it's only because Peter is younger and ingested that aspirin (and Olivia being in the lab with him) that saved him. Very scary to see Peter having a seizure in the lab like that. Thank God Olivia was with him and she was able to follow Walter's instructions.

I'm glad we are getting continuity on the Peter/Olivia front and it looks like Olivia is slowly getting past Fauxlivia infiltrating her life, but she still has a ways to go in dealing with Peter and their relationship. Getting that book Peter got for Fauxlivia certainly didn't help, but I loved the scenes that we got where Peter explains to her that he got it for HER and not for Fauxlivia.

"It's always been easier for me to keep people at arm's length which is actually something that I think we have in common. The book wasn't meant for her. It was meant for the Olivia Dunham that I've spent the last couple of years of my life with. Because I wanted you to read it. You're the person I wanted to share it with."

I swear, I'm not crying. It's just raining on my face. I thought this was a beautiful speech. Olivia doesn't react much and instead says: "Everything is different. Even you opening up to me is different. And this book is just a reminder of all the things that I missed. Conversations we didn't have." She's still in the grieving phase which is totally understandable, but she's starting to open up again to him by the end of the episode when she asked why that was his favorite book.

"Because it talks about not depending on other people for answers. That you can only find the answers inside yourself. Which, given our current situation is kind of amusing if you think about it."

Now it makes me want to check out the book and read it for myself because that is a philosophy that I can get behind.

Other random observations:

- It was cool to see Christopher Lloyd aka Doc Brown of Back To the Future fame playing Roscoe Joyce. Definitely a win for the casting department.

- Roscoe calling Astrid "Kelly" made me laugh! That doesn't even come close to her name.

- What did September mean when he said to Peter "It must be very difficult, being a father"? Please don't tell me Fauxlivia is with child. 😧 Or maybe he's referring to Walter. Yes, I'll go with that one.

Que episódio!!! A reação "vagalume" foi foda!!
E apesar de não ter sido "respondido" com todas as palavras acredito que a moça que foi salva, provavelmente era a menina que não pegou o vagalume!
