Man I loved the alternate Lincoln. But now I ship our Lincoln and Fauxlivia. I knew he wanted to stay...cause he has the chance to get what he wants on the other side...Olivia.

Odio immensamente il colonnello. È TUTTA COLPA TUA. ME LO SPIEGHI CHE COSA CI GUADAGNI????
Mi piaceva tantissimo questa versione di Lincoln: più tranquillo, più sciolto. A tratti arrogante. Non doveva morire... ç__ç

I loved this episode so much! I have so many feelings and thoughts marinating in my head that I feel like this review might get pretty long (or longer than usual, heh).

First things first, the case of the week. The Fringe team from the alternate universe are looking for a compassionate shapeshifter who only targets and kills criminals or lowlifes to keep himself alive. He believes the promises that Jones told him that he will be cured and will be part of Jones' dream of building a better breed of human beings. Lincoln gets to him and he ends up helping the Fringe team capture AltNina and have the team access a ton of information regarding the shapeshifter project. Yay for Lincoln.

Lincoln's feelings of inadequacy, not belonging, not being wanted/needed are in full display in this episode. He just wants a place to belong, a place to call home, and he's not finding that in his own universe, not even how much his own Fringe team makes him feel a part of their little family. Now that Olivia's memories are supplanting old Olivia's memories, everything that he's shared or experienced with the old Olivia is gone and that has to hurt.

Olivia returning the token back to him (which he actually gave to her for saving his life) was the final straw, I think. Imagine giving something that has such great sentimental value to someone and for that person to give it back to you not remembering what it meant has to be pretty disappointing and saddening. Lincoln keeps his feelings in check, though, and doesn't tell anyone. Instead, he deals with it by going to the other side to keep his mind occupied while his Fringe team takes Gene out to graze in the pasture (lol).

I enjoyed the Fringe team's dynamic with Lincoln and would have loved to have seen more of this in future episodes, but it's not meant to be. AltLincoln is killed and I'm devastated. Hell, I even got teary-eyed when AltLivia was looking at the pictures of her and AltLincoln in AltLincoln's locker door. I love both Lincolns equally so this was a tough loss. I'm going to miss his swagger and confidence and authoritative air. Poor AltLivia losing her partner, but I have a feeling she won't be partner-less for long.

Lincoln could very well decide to stay in the alternate universe and find his home here and realize that this is where he belongs. If that involves having a relationship with AltLivia, so be it. I was very charmed by their interactions and I loved their chemistry. It's funny because I thought Seth and Anna have more chemistry as Lincoln and AltLivia than Lincoln and Olivia.

We got two scenes of people talking about Olivia and I live for these types of scenes. First we have AltLincoln telling Lincoln that AltLivia is the tough one of the two of them and that for the six years that they've spent working together, he hasn't seen her barf or shed a tear. Then later on we have Canaan and AltNina's conversation:

"The redhead almost took my head off with an almost impossible shot."
"That girl always amazes me. She and the one from the other side."

Speaking of that shot, HOT DAMN! That was indeed super impressive. AltLivia was shooting a running target in between slots while she's on the ground and her target is up on a rooftop. What kind of talent and skill does that take?? That Olympic marksmanship gold medal sure came in handy.

Back up to Nina for a second. I have never considered until this episode that maybe this Nina is not a shapeshifter (which I originally thought), but is actually the AltNina from this universe. How did this not occur to me earlier? This explains why the Nina on the other side is still alive. D'oh! AltNina's bowl cut cracked me up. It's so unlike the Nina from our universe.

A few more differences of note between our universe and this universe:

1) The USSR still exists if that poster/banner is to be believed.
2) Things in the other universe are starting to slowly heal and our Fringe team are recognized as heroes in the alternate universe.
3) Pictures on newspapers move - very Harry Potter-esque.
4) Batman is known as Mantis.

That last one needs to be highlighted because I laughed so hard at the conversation that transpired between Lincoln, AltLivia, AltLincoln:

"What's a Batman?"
"Oh, you mean Mantis."
"Seriously? Your superhero is an insect?"
"Oh, what, cause nothing says 'badass' like a flying rat?" 😅

I liked Lincoln giving the memento from Robert to Canaan with the message "to keep you from floating away." It was a great bookend to the beginning of the episode where he was relating the meaning of the memento to Olivia. "Danzig knew I was never much for putting down roots. I never really stayed in the same place too long. He used to joke that if I kept living like that that one day I would just float off into space. So he gave me this as a reminder that I always had a home. With him, with his family. This, he said, was my tether."

Other random thoughts and observations:

- It's so weird to feel like I miss seeing Torv onscreen whenever our Olivia is not featured heavily in an episode? I know that she also plays AltLivia, but I still somehow miss watching her. Maybe this is just my bias for Olivia.

- Lincoln's middle name is Tyrone! "What's up, Tyrone?"

- I loved the scene where both Lincolns were recounting their similar histories and Lincoln keeps wondering what happened in AltLincoln's life that made him so confident and so different from Lincoln. I wonder how long it took to shoot that scene.

- When is the Fringe team on the alternate universe figure out that there's a mole inside their organization? I really hope AltLincoln asking Lincoln (after he was shot) about who else knows they were transporting the suspect is not forgotten and is addressed soon.
