In Praise of ‘Fringe’s’ Walter Bishop

"J.J. Abrams’ addicting, intriguing, and occasionally maddening sci-fi epic Fringe comes to a conclusion tonight, and along with it the story of the show’s most complicated character, mad scientist Walter Bishop.

Portrayed with humor and empathy by the brilliant John Noble, Walter has always been the show’s emotional and intellectual centerpiece.

Between nearly destroying another universe, spending almost 20 years in a mental hospital, and facing down his own evil alter ego, Walter’s been through more in five seasons than most Harvard-educated geniuses go through in a lifetime.

Read on for the on-screen highlights of Walter’s illustrious tenure that earned his show one of primetime television’s most devoted cult followings.”
