Enemy Of My Enemy is the ninth episode of the fourth season of FRINGE. It first aired on 20 January, 2012. Peter's gains support in the alternate universe and unites the two sides in an effort to eradicate the shapeshifter threat and their creator. Walter assesses his life and decides to participate in the effort.
SynopsisColonel Philip Broyles sifts through security camera footage from the building he manages trying to isolate FBI Agent Lee's location following his apprehension by Agent Dunham and Captain Lee. Broyles, a co-conspirator of David Jones, deduces from the footage that his agents have sequestered their detainee in one of several maintenance rooms while they investigate a lead in New York's Flatiron District. Aware of Lee's location in the building, Broyles finds a secure lock box he maintains in a file cabinet, opens it and extracts a syringe and a vial filled with lime-colored liquid. He loads the syringe with the liquid and prepares to depart his office with the syringe in his pocket. En route to the maintenance room holding Agent Lee, Colonel Broyles is intercepted by his boss - Secretary Walter Bishop. Bishop needs him to release Agent Lee from custody immediately. Escorting the senior politician is Peter Bishop. Secretary Bishop and Colonel Broyles retire to Broyles' office for a private discussion. Bishop believes that shapeshifters have infiltrated his organization, leaving them, and other branches of the government vulnerable. Agent Murphy (Back To Where You've Never Been) from the Fringe Division may have been a shapeshifter too. Broyles informs Bishop
Following their call trace to a dilapidated industrial district, Bolivia Dunham and Lincoln Lee exit their vehicle and move toward the building where they believe the call to Agent Murphy originated. Lincoln knew Murphy well and nothing he remembers about his colleague was suspect. Bolivia's intuition is telling her that their prisoner, FBI-man Lee is an honest agent. The duo approaches and enters the makeshift lab of David Jones and finds him near one of his latest shapeshifter creations. Jones is less than surprised at the intrusion and offers no resistance, other than a quiet, self-absorbed, maniacal diatribe. The nearby female shapeshifter in stasis begins to writhe... Jones, her creator, has timed his theatrics to coincide with his arrest. He has killed her as an example to the Fringe agents. He loved his creation dearly - now - imagine what he will do to those he does not care about. Surrender was his goal - now he needs to see those in charge.Olivia stops by Walter's lab to get Astrid started on a little research Walter is busy with his latest diversion - molecular gastronomy - and the promise of Parmesan Ice Cream. Less than enthusiatic about Walter's perverted treatment of simple foods, Astrid takes a sidebar with Olivia and learns of her new tasking... checking a blood sample against global databases to learn what she can about the donor. Astrid studies Olivia and senses she is troubled with something. Olivia confesses her transgression with helping Peter cross to the other universe and sending the new guy, Agent Lee, along with him to reconnoiter in the war against the shapeshifters. They haven't returned yet, and she needs to go brief the boss, Broyles, on the botched mission... a mission he knows nothing about, and certainly did not approve. Good luck.
In the parking garage at Fringe Division Headquarters, Colonel Broyles meets his agents when they return with Doctor Jones. Bolivia confidently reports that their suspect is certifiably insane. Lincoln has nothing to report - Jones has no identification and doesn't register on any databases they have access to. The science team is going over his compound, trying to find anything they can. Bolivia has the impression (correctly) that Jones knew that they were going to show-up at his lab. Broyles orders them to move Jones to an interrogation room - not a maintenance closet like Agent Lee. Upstairs in the Situation Room, Peter joins the freshly liberated Agent Lee and learns of the apprehension of the conspirator that tried to have them assassinated. Peter plans to leave - an escort is on the way to take them to Liberty Island and get them back to the other universe. Lee is adamant that they need to remain where they are. They should remain and try to get some answers... help with the interrogation. Peter is set on leaving. He has gained Secretary Bishop's trust and needs to get back and start reviewing the blueprints of the Wave Sink Device. Both are motivated - Peter wants to go home to his timeline. Lee wants to engage the enemy that killed his best friend. Peter stops talking and quietly studies the suspect when he is brought to a nearby interrogation room - he immediately recognizes the man that ordered his death.
The female caller, Doctor Samuels, places a small, cylindrical container on the counter at the hospital emergency room where she works. After putting the speakerphone on, and briskly walking away from the container, the crowded ward fills with a choking vapor as Samuels exits the area. The crutch she slides through the handles on the door guarantees that no one will escape. The screams of panic and pain fill Fringe Division as Jones' terror attack rattles everyone, except Jones.
At the Fringe Task Force operations center in the Federal Building in Boston, Olivia finds her way to Phillip Broyles office to come clean about the situation with Peter Bishop and Agent Lee. She is pre-empted by Broyles. He already knows about her unauthorized activities in helping them cross to the parallel universe. What's worse is that he had to hear it from his counterpart, Colonel Broyles. Neither of them found her insubordination amusing. They will talk about that later though - first he needs to brief her on the David Robert Jones situation - a convict from this universe that has been making trouble in the other universe.
In a busy plaza amid the tall buildings in midtown Manhatan, David Jones lounges in plain sight as multiple teams of agents monitor him from afar. Bolivia, sitting across the plaza with Agent Lee, anticipates that Jones is going to try and ditch his watchers as soon as the business lunch crowd hits the plaza. Lincoln and Broyles are posted down the street in their vehicle, ready to follow Jones as soon as he takes any action.
In the Situation Room at Fringe Division Headquarters, Agent Farnsworth reports to Colonel Broyles on her findings from the data disk that Jones had demanded. It contained geological data garnered from satellite and radar sources, but she hasn't been able to determine what exactly the data was focused on... minerals? Oil deposits? Anything of value? Broyles wants an update if she finds any meaningful pattern in the data. Peter joins Farnsworth at her workstation once Broyles moves on - he is wondering if he can have a look at the data she is studying. She gladly steps aside - slightly fascinated with the cool guy who may be from another timeline. Bolivia is busy nearby. She has been working on getting Jones' image loaded into the visual recognition database so he'll have a profile the surveillance network can use. Agent Lee joins her with a suspicion he has been pondering... how did Jones pinpoint the tracking their frequency so quickly? Is Jones getting inside information from a member of Fringe Division? Agent Farnsworth grabs the pair and brings them back to her monitor - Peter believes he knows where Jones is going. Broyles meets them there and Peter shares his deduction. Jones geologic data suggests that he is after a mineral named Amphilicite, typically found under large limestone deposits. In
The Fringe response team arrives in three vehicles at Mohonk Quarry in upstate New York.
In a forest clearing, somewhere in the Hudson River Valley, shape-shifter Nadine Park and an accomplice deploy the equipment needed to establish a portal between universes. Once corridor tracking has been completed, the device is activated and a large brane opens between the parallel locations. David Robert Jones steps through the portal and into this universe. Breathing hard and deep, he declares the atmosphere on this side tastes sweeter.Gene, his bovine amigo, is getting the spa treatment with a good brushing and an earful of Farmer's Almanac truisms. Walter's FBI security man approaches with news of a visitor for the Doctor. Walter doesn't want to be bothered - what he doing is important. The agent steps aside and Elizabeth Bishop approaches. Walter freezes at the sound of the familiar voice and initially hesitates to look up - in case he had imagined it. He turns to see that he had not. He can barely speak - his heart soars at the beauty of the woman he has loved for decades. Elizabeth brings him back to reality - reminding him that she is not his Elizabeth. Walter finds solid emotionally footing and concedes to the fact that she is married to Secretary Bishop. Elizabeth had always thought that they would never see one another again after he abducted her child so long ago. Perhaps it is appropriate now that they meet again under current circumstances... a version of their sons needs their help. Walter is reluctant - his decision to not involve himself in this matter is quite firm. Elizabeth opens the door to negotiation: He came to her to save a young man once... now she has returned to do the same.
Back on Liberty Island, Agent Lee and Peter Bishop are greeted by Broyles and Olivia as they pass through the security entrance point on this side of the trans-universal lab. Peter immediately goes on record as the individual responsible for surpassing Broyles authority in this matter. They will get to that later, right now they need to getm to the helicopter and fly upstate to Mohonk Quarry and join-up with the technical team that has already deployed there. Peter lags behind to catch a word with Olivia. She reports the boss is really miffed - but then that's happened more than once. The trouble she is in should blow over... it always does.
In the Hudson River Valley in this universe, Jones and his troupe of criminals work busily at Mohonk Quarry to a fill the bay of a dump truck with the Amphilicite ore that Jones requires. The response team sent by Broyles races up the access road and Jones' team goes on alert at the intrusion. Jones orders his excavation folks to ready the dump truck for departure, then tasks Nadine Park to hold-off the pending assault. Peter, sitting behind Olivia as she drives her vehicle did not fare as well.
In the campus home provided for Peter, Doctor Walter Bishop arrives at the front door after a lengthy walk from his laboratory. Tired and thirsty, Walter divulges the visit he had from Secretary Bishop's wife. Elizabeth made him see Peter's plight, and to understand the loneliness that Peter must certainly feel over the loss of his loved ones - an emotion that Walter is exceedingly familiar with. Peter beams at the new leaf Walter is turning over in his life. Walter is now acting like the man that Peter was hoping he would. Walter recognizes Peter's new home - Walter lived here once too.
- While Agent Lee urgently tries to locate Jones in the busy plaza, The Observer passes quickly behind him as the crowd scrambles to collect the cash distributed by Jones as a decoy during his evasion.
