Review - Fringe Season 2 Episode 11 Unearthed

Whoever decided to air this unused season 1 episode last night is an idiot plain and simple. When I first read they were doing this, I knew it was bad idea, but I didn't know it would be this bad. I get that Fox was testing Fringe on Mondays after House and/or messing with the Heroes audience, but why not air a new episode?

Granted it we haven't seen it before, but the episode was a standard monster of the week executed rather poorly. The audience was surely confused that Charlie was back, and there was no reference to the mythology that has developed in season 2. Stupid, stupid, stupid, and more stupid.

The story was about a girl possessed by a dead guy. The team tries exorcising her, and they think it works, but it really doesn't. Then she tries killing the person who killed the spirit, and Charlie finally gets it out of her. The spirit jumps into another body at the end of the body. Roll credits...

Score: 7.9/10

or maybe this is just a story from the other side, in which charlie never dies, because there is no agent of the mirror world to kill him and take his place, that would also explain the lack of mythology because its not their mythology..

and it doesn't interest you that the guy at the end crashes a vehicle near/exactly where dunham came back ?

The lack of mythology is because it's an unaired season 1 episode. That's been confirmed.
