At the close of ‘Fringe‘s Season 2 finale, it was revealed that the alt-universe’s version of Olivia (played by Anna Torv) had sneaked over to this side, with Peter and Walter none the wiser. “Our” Olivia meanwhile is locked up over “there,” seemingly helpless to make her entrapment known.
For how long will this sinister swap go undetected?
“The culmination of the first half of the [new] season is going to be that reveal,” ‘Fringe’ star Joshua Jackson tells Fancast in the red-carpet video below.
Until then, watch for Peter to appreciate the attitudinal differences that may slip out from his poser of a partner. “Bolivia” – as in “Olivia B” – “is much closer to Peter’s personality… so I think he is more naturally sympatico with that woman than he is with… ‘extra tasty/crispy Olivia’?”

Jackson also hints that when Bolivia’s origin comes to light, Peter might not necessarily make a beeline for the “B” universe to retrieve the real deal. Repeatedly alluding to in-flux “loyalties,” the actor says, “We haven’t decided who’s good and who’s bad, and what we want and what we don’t want.”
To prep viewers new and old for the series’ September 23 season premiere, Fox is repeating the episodes “White Tulip” (Aug. 26), “The Man from the Other Side” (Sept. 2), “Northwest Passage” (Sept. 9) and the two-part season finale “Over There” (Sept. 16).
