Fringe Season 3 Episode 11 Making Angels Review. Fringe: Season 3, Episode 11: Making Angels is one of the first and maybe the only episode to primarily focus on Astrid Farnsworth (Jasika Nicole). Possibly because of that she gives her most emotional performance on the show thus far. It was certainly written as such, much like the ‘Allison from Palmdale’ episode was for Summer Glau in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
I am guessing the Alternate Astrid Farnsworth suffers from an attention deficit disorder or has high-functioning autism. They never say which but am guessing the latter, like Temple Grandin.
The mercy killings were inventive, as were their perpetuator, but why end them in a single episode, why follow that end-of-the-episode-wrap-up modus operandi? They have two sub-plots building in the back ground, they do not want a third, even a brief one it seems.
The Observers not knowing that one of their agents had gone rouge seemed very strange since they can see time (past, present, future) existing simultaneously. Why couldn’t they see the future actions of one of their own in the present? Since they flow and exist within time, I imagine this is impossible.
The electric car is really being advertised and pushed this season of Fringe as were Sprint Smart phones in seasons past. I do not mind its inclusion and think it is fitting in a science-fiction TV show but they are a tad heavy-handed with it.
