Review - Fringe Season 3 Episode 19 Lysergic Acid Diethylamide

Whatever one may think about "Lysergic Acid Diethylamide," there's no denying that the writers are as bold as ever. While most shows lie back and return to normalcy after large events, Fringe pushes forward in its own unconventional way. "Lysergic Acid Diethylamide" doesn't advance the plot of the two worlds fighting, but it does resolve the issue of William Bell and has plenty of humor along the way.

The episode is one long LSD trip--a cartoon with zombies and zeppelins, Broyles tripping, and wacky stuff in general. But the writers never forget that they have a purpose, and the episode is quite emotional with the return of Olivia and the departure of William Bell. Of course, the last line of the episode, Olivia casually remarking that the man in the drawing will kill her, is the type of cliffhanger we've come to expect.

Score: 8.9/10
