The saga leaps ahead to 2036, where rogue agents from a marginalized Fringe Division recover most of the original Science Team after two decades encased in Amber.

Meanwhile, the Observers have most of the native population subjugated, oppressed and repressed as an inferior culture... but there is new hope.

original airdate--April 20,2012          rating--3.089 million

Glyph code spells--QUAKE

Walters Food Fetish--Licorice (red)

Trivia: This episode follows the pattern established in season two: The fourth-to-last episode of a season is "the weird one". Season two (23 eps) had #2.20, Brown Betty, a musical, whereas season three (22 eps) had #3.19, Lysergic Acid Diethylamide, a partly animated episode. And this one is a flash-forward episode.

Goof: A seam line on the amber in which Walter was encased can be seen on the back side edge of the block.

Observer Sighting--Observer Sighting. September appears to be out of the loop in this specific future, but was referenced as providing key information to Walter when his society was attempting to purge this universe. The occupation force of Observer's seems to have adopted Manhattan as one of it's enclaves on the North American continent. Basically, you can't swing a dead resistance fighter without hitting an Observer.
