Alternate Version    

Elizabeth Bishop is Walter's wife in this universe.


  She is devastated (Peter) after her birth-son Peter dies. When Walter brings back Peter Bishop from the Parallel Universe to cure him of his genetic malady, she is so happy to see "her" son, that Walter realizes that he will not be able to return the child to his true father.

  Approximately six months later (Subject 13), she struggles to keep the secret from Peter. She uses Walter's explanation of Peter's treatment/illness as an alibi for Peter's confusion and remberances of the alternate world under Reiden Lake. When Peter finally accepts her as his mother, she cannot contain the guilt she feels and copes with excessive alcohol consumption.



"He didn't go to a proper school. He didn't have any proper friends. He... he had no family but us. We kept him so well, we never let anyone else get to know him." - to Walter (deeply remorseful (Peter) that they could not provide Peter with a normal life)

"You know tulips don't usually grow in areas like this." - to Peter (Subject 13) (unaware of the ironic and pivotal impact the flowers would have in drawing the lives of he and Olivia together across timelines and universes)
