There’s more than one of everything. That was the title and pretty much summary of the season finale of Fringe on Tuesday - another you, another me, another world. Walter Bishop posited that déjà vu is a glimpse into that other world – you think you have been there before, because you actually already have – in an alternate reality, a reality slightly different from our own. It’s an interesting take on déjà vu. Theories of alternate realities are not new, though in Fringe it seems to be an assumption that there is only one other reality (at least that is all the characters have told us), and that certain people can cross over in their mind, or in reality. It turns out Olivia Dunham may be one of these people. She has finally admitted to herself that she believes she was given Cortexiphan during a drug trial as a child – and it looks like Walter Bishop may be involved.
