The Fifth Season of Fringe Looks Strangely Olivia-Less

The final, shortened season of Fringe begins this Friday night, and this new trailer for it recaps the circumstances going into the extended flash-forward of the Observer-ruled future. I’m still weirded out about the Observer’s heel turn — if their plan was always to take over the planet, why did they do all that observing, then? — but now I’m more concerned about the trailer’s lack of Olivia. Where is she? Is she still stuck in Amber? Do the Observers have her? Does Fox have an only one blonde white leading actress per season mandate? And if she does show up, will she finally have some fucking superpowers? Enh, who am I kidding. As long as Walter keeps getting Astrid’s name wrong, I’m going to keep watching. (Via Blastr)
