Liberty is the twelfth episode of the fifth season of FRINGE. It first aired on 18 January, 2013. The team engages their desperate final plan to defeat the Observers as Olivia embarks on a dangerous mission through the alternate universe into the heart of enemy territory to recover Michael from Windmark's scientists.

[edit] Synopsis

Prologue
  In Walter's Lab, inside the
Guys. I'm With Walter On This One. Seinfeld Is Not Nearly As Funny As It Was Five Decades Ago, Although Costanza Is Likely 'Observer-Bald' Now
restricted zone established around the former campus of Harvard University, the science team is keenly engaged in finding the whereabouts of the Observer genetic anomaly, Progeny XB-6783746, also known as their young friend - Michael. Peter has been on the phone with Anil, who is coordinating with his contacts to see if anyone has heard about the capture of a child Observer, but so far - nothing. Noboby has seen or heard anything about Michael. Astrid was tracking the convoy that had Michael, but they seem to have disappeared completely. Not even the satellite surveillance she has access to can find the convoy. Walter is frustrated, Michael was key to his master plan to defeat
Oh. I Get It. The Raven... You Should Go With 'The Ostrich' Though. Tall, Trim - Weird Bald Head And Bug Eyes. Umm, Sir
the Observers, and now they can't locate or contact September either... maybe he knows how to find his son. Olivia is concerned that Captain Windmark, given enough time with Michael, could figure out that the boy is at the heart of their plan to eliminate the Invaders from 2609 AD.
  In the Observer's Precinct Headquarters in Manhattan, one of Anil's top 'contacts' is on the job and fishing for information about the captured child Observer. Phillip Broyles corners a top-ranking Loyalist officer that works closely with Captain Windmark and asks about the high-value detainee that was taken into custody the day before. Where is the detainee being held? The Lieutenant is under strict orders not to share that information with anyone... it is a 'need to know' kind of thing. Broyles assures him that he has a need to know - Fringe Division has been tasked to reinforce the security detail for that detainee. Well, that is news to the Lieutenant. Broyles won't let the man wiggle away from the original question. There's supposed to be a measure of cooperation between their Departments. Where is the detainee? The Loyalist officer is worried about the recent protocol changes following the internal security breaches they have been suffering lately, and counter-espionage personnel like the Dove. Does the Lieutenant think that Broyles might be the spy? Naw. The detainee is in Detention Camp 17 on Liberty Island.
  On Liberty Island, in one of Camp 17's science laboratories, Michael sits, strapped to his chair and awaiting his fate at the hands of Windmark. With his typical menace, the lead enforcer for the invading Observers removes his hat and takes a seat facing the persistently
<Michael> Look Private Skidmark, Stop Calling Me Luke. Plus You Are Not My Father! Careful Now Or Aunt Olive And I Will Really Show You 'The Force'
silent genetic anomaly - assuring the lad it is in his best interest to communicate with him. Michael will tell him why the fugitive science team has taken such an interest in him... and September, what is his interest in taking him from the future and hiding him. Staid and focused, Michael gives Windmark a taste of the communication he was asking for. Michael reflects Windmark's words back into his own mind, echoing and uncomfortable at the same time. Windmark sways and closes his eyes to regain his concentration, then realizes Michael's mind has inflicted a small hemorrhage in his sinus cavity. The trickle of blood from his nose catches Windmark off-guard and a quick wipe with a handkerchief means the questioning will continue. Not one to be easily intimidated, Michael concentrates and ruptures the blood vessels in Windmark's right eye when
<Walter> What Happened To The Top Of Lady Liberty? <Broyles> They Used It For A 'Planet Of The Apes' Remake. Those Damn Dirty Baldies
the interrogation turns to the science team's plan to defeat the Observers. Windmark his seen enough - run a thorough diagnostic on the Anomaly. Find out what it is.

[edit] ACT I

  Once clear of the Observer Headquarters, Broyles finds a spot to sit outside and assembly his secure comm and data link to the science team in the lab. The group listens in on speakerphone as Broyles reports the less than stellar news... he knows where Michael has been taken - Liberty Island. And what's worse is the facility he is in is like a fortress - not even Broyles has access through the five layers of security in-place there. Broyles sends a three-dimensional schematic of the Liberty Island facility for the team to review, then highlights the East Wing Neurological Research Unit. That is where Michael is and what Walter suspects is the worst scenario possible - they are going to experiment on his young, bald amigo. About the most that Broyles can offer is maritime support... a boat to get to the heavily defended and monitored island. But that option has almost no chance of succeeding because of the multiple redundant alarm systems. If one is tampered with, the others automatically lock the place down. Olivia is thinking outside of the paradigm that the others have limited themselves to. Why endure the traps and snares of this universe when a potential avenue of access may be totally undefended? What if she were to crossover to the alternate universe, voyage to Liberty Island, then step back into this universe and snatch Michael from his security handlers. Astrid reminds everyone that Olivia has already drained the Cortexiphan from her
Olivia! Remind Me Again Which One You Wanted! The "Tastes Great"? Or The "Less Filling" Variety?
system, and no longer has the ability to transit universes unaided. Walter thinks for a moment - maybe he can change that limitation.
  Below Walter's Lab, the team makes its way down to the storage basement and the Cortexiphan stored there. Walter is certain that the 25 year-old drug is still good. He and William Bell concocted it with a shelf life of 127 years. Astrid wants to know how they are going to get the Cortexiphan to activate Olivia's ability quick enough to help Michael... when Olivia was tested as a child by Walter, she received controlled doses over an extended time before she manifested any of her talents. Walter believes Olivia's neural infrastructure developed a unique network when she was young and in the drug trial for Cortexiphan. Everything is all ready for her to be reactivated - essentially a large dose now would merely jump start her trans-dimensional powers, and her neural network would be as powerful as ever, at least temporarily. Olivia is more concerned about how long, or short, a period she would be reactivated, than about her health. Peter is more worried about the dangerous side effects. A massive dose, or any dose, has always been unpredictable. Exactly how will Olivia react? Seizures? Heart failure? Phase completely out of existence? Burst into flames? Yes, yes. Walter agrees that the risk involved is substantial - but he will do what he can to abate that risk as much as possible. Olivia is set on under-going the treatment and liberating Michael from Liberty Island. She reminds Peter about their commitment to see this mission to its completion: Michael is the lynchpin in that plan, and what else can they do so their daughter's sacrifice will not be in vain. Both feet in... that's the deal. Reluctantly, Peter concedes the point, but what if the Observer's are in control of the alternate universe too, when she gets there. What then? Stumped for a second, Astrid brainstorms the answer - let's take a peek. On the other side of the storage basement is the trans-dimensional viewing window that Walter used 51 years earlier to peep into the alternate universe, his counterpart lab there, and Peter's bedroom when he was terminally ill
Dude, Seriously. Let Me Go Now And I Might Let You Live. I Will Definitely Go All Rambo On Your Chrome-Domes If You Touch One Hair On My...
and about to die. Brilliant!
  In the Neurological Research facility on Liberty Island, Windmark watches as Michael receives an initial injection to begin the experimentation to see what makes him tick. The shot is designed to render Michael motionless from the neck down so his body functions do not interfere with the diagnostic evaluation they will be conducting from the neck up. A neural analyzer is lowered over Michael's head and activated. The cranial structure of the Observer anomaly is immediately visible on a nearby screen for Windmark to study. Dissatisfied with the hospitality he has been receiving, Michael scours slightly and generates another nosebleed for Windmark to deal with. Straining to maintain his composure, Captain Windmark exits the laboratory with instructions to be contacted when there are results from the testing.
  On the southern tip of Manhattan, the science team arrives in the van from Boston and stops at Battery Park to get the closest view they can of Liberty Island from shore, without driving around to New Jersey. The plan is to quickly unload the trans-dimensional viewing window and take a quick, smart look across the
<Astrid> Very Funny Walter. No. This Isn't A 'Ghost Whisperer' Rerun
harbor at the Liberty Island in the alternate universe. If the Observers are in control of the former monument in the alternate universe, the team will have to develop a tertiary plan to extract Michael from the island in this universe. Wary about capture, the team waits until a nearby Loyalist, walking her dog, has departed the area. Astrid and Walter power-up the device and tune it accordingly. The window shows only a partly cloudy sky on the other side, pedestrians - none of which are Observer or Loyalist, and a nearly identical boat landing to the one immediately in front of them. The better news is that Liberty Island appears to have avoided any upgrades or modifications under an Observer-dominated occupation. Alternate universe Lady Liberty is intact and beautiful. The mission is a go, but first they will need Anil to get them into a safe local hideout with medical support - Olivia's Cortexiphan treatments are going to be physically rough on her.

[edit] ACT II

  In Walter's Lab, September makes
Okay. This Should Do It. Small Doses Once A Month And I Win The Next Seven Tour de' France Rallies - - And Nobody Is The Wiser
his way into the facility using the directions given to him to guide him from the perimeter of the restricted zone through the steam tunnels underlying the former campus. He pops out in the hallway outside of the laboratory and drags up the bags of equipment the team is going to need to assemble the device that should ultimately defeat the Observers. He gives a quick shout out to see if anyone is home, but it becomes evident that he is all alone. Not one to waste time, September gets busy with some of the chores that will need to be accomplished in assembling and deploying the Invasion-ending device. A holographic schematic allows him to visualize the final product. The quartz ore samples collected from Northern Pennsylvania are next. He begins by pulverizing the collected rock, then super-heating it with a blowtorch to granularize and isolate its unique properties. Next he adds a clear liquid to the pulverized grit and filters it to achieve a clear, wheat-colored, emulsification which he seals in a long clear cylinder.
  Somewhere in far southern New York, the science team is led to, and granted access into the Resistance-maintained hideout that will allow Walter to mega-dose Olivia with Cortexiphan under a modicum of medical support and oversight, in case it all goes wrong. Anil's medical support, Tobin, a field surgeon for the Cause gathered what he could on short-notice, but doesn't have the defibrillator
Oh, Sorry Dear. I Just Remembered This Doesn't Go In the Brain Stem. Stand-Up And Pretend I Am Agent Lee - Show Me Some Young Butt Cheek
Walter asked for. The procedure will include several injections directly into Olivia's brain stem. The first two injections send Olivia's heart rate screaming past double its resting pace and makes everyone apprehensive about the final two injections... everyone except Olivia, who is still committed to doing what it takes to rescue Michael. Peter holds Olivia as she endures the reactivation of her Cortexiphan-specific neural network. Olivia can't see Peter anymore and Tobin sounds the alarm when Olivia's heart rate exceeds that of a hummingbird. Walter is going to kill her! Walter doesn't think he is - he knows Cortexiphan better than anyone. The third injection sends Olivia through the roof and Peter demands Walter stop. Nope. Walter needs to give Olivia a fourth and final injection - her plan to rescue Michael means she has to transit universes four times - she needs this last dose to ensure that she and Michael aren't stranded on the other side. Period. The final injection blasted into Olivia's brain stem leaves her screaming and collapsed onto Peter's shoulder, and nearly unresponsive.

and under study on Liberty Island, Progeny XB-6783746 sits and waits patiently as the attending Observer scientists study the cranial infrastructure presented by their diagnostic equipment. The development in Michael's emotional centers are uncharacteristic. The limbic system is vestigial and substantially enlarged with tendrils branching into his cognitive centers. Michael has integrated emotional and intellectual activity previously deemed impossible. Windmark will need to be alerted.
  Back in the safehouse, Astrid sits at Olivia's side while everyone waits for her to regain her senses. Walter takes a minute to make peace with Peter and discuss the peril Olivia is about to face. Sacrifice is difficult to deal with - both know that all too well. Walter wants to share more with Peter, something - a decision he made, is weighing heavily on his mind. Peter waits for Walter to share what he is thinking, but Walter demurs from the situation in favor of reviving Olivia. Olivia is not quite ready to depart her slumber... between her ears she is dreaming about her daughter and the bonding they generated when Henrietta was young, and recently before Windmark eliminated her. Olivia's waking thought is encouraging - the plan to defeat the Observers will prevent the 2015 Invasion and her daughter will never be in peril. When Olivia does manage to get her eyes open and focused in the real-world, Walter and Peter appear and disappear as the Cortexiphan she took induces fleeting visions of the universe she intends to visit soon. Time to leave the safety of the hideout and find the location of Fringe Division in the parallel universe, or at least where they left it two and a half decades earlier. Walter has a wristwatch for Olivia to take with her. With only a few hours until the heavy dosing wears-off, Olivia needs to get in-place on alt-Liberty Island, cross back into this universe and nab Michael, then egress back to the safety of the alternate universe before returning here. Side effects may include; dry-mouth, disorientation, hallucinations, lapses in time. Patients suffering these symptoms should contact their favorite mad scientist immediately and not operate heavy machinery.
 The team drives through the back alleys of this universe's New York City to where they expect Olivia to find the alternate universe Fringe Division Headquarters when she crosses over. Walter sends her on her way with a hug, then a kiss on the forehead. Astrid reminds Olivia
Uck. I Wish They Wouldn't 'Recycle' The Lavatory Systems Over The City. I Always Hated That Here
about the rendezvous point - they will be at Battery Park waiting when she returns with Michael. Peter escorts Olivia from the van to a position in the alley that should be directly across from the folks that can help her get to Liberty Island in no time. Hopefully, her counterpart Olivia will be nearby to facilitate the extraordinary request she is about to lay on them. Peter sends Olivia on her way with a kiss - this is for their daughter. Olivia releases herself to the process and in just a few seconds, transits the brane between universes and materializes intact in the alternate universe and right on target. The dirigible airship overhead confirms it. Still vigilant in the defense of their universe, the rapid response staff in the building immediately picks-up on Olivia's transgression into their space - the breach is just outside. Before Olivia can find her way through the front door, she is surrounded by agents with their pistols drawn. In the lunch room, Senior Agent Dunham gets the word of the breach on her earclip comm device.

[edit] ACT IV

Olivia awaits her potential hosts inside their office at Fringe Division in the parallel universe. The family style photos on the desk suggest that her one-time partner, former FBI Agent Lee, and her genetic duplicate, Fringe Division Agent Dunham have led a happy existence
Really? All You Used Was 'Oil Of Olay', Ate Right And Exercised To Keep So Fit And Young-Looking?
for the 24-plus years since Lee crossed-over and the trans-dimensional bridge on Liberty Island was switched-off for good. Olivia is greeted warmly and hugged by her once bitter enemy-self. Lee gets the same sweet reception. Yeah - she does look as young as she did back then... two decades preserved in Amber will do that for a gal. But tick-tock, time is running low and Olivia needs some serious help now. After a quick sit-down and recap of the situation with the Observers, Olivia shares that her daughter was the one that liberated the science team... oh boy! - the Cortexiphan might be playing tricks on Olivia. Walter did warn of hallucinations, but standing on the opposite side of the room is Olivia's pre-school daughter... listening intently to the conversation. Olivia tunes out of the gossip mill temporarily and her vision blurs - when she composes herself, her daughter is gone and her pals sense she is disoriented. Are you okay? Sure, but she needs to get cracking on the rescue mission to Liberty Island. Walter's guestimate wristwatch says she only has two hours of Cortexiphan capability remaining. First, Olivia needs a lift to Liberty Island, then when she returns there with Michael, she will need another ride to Battery Park so she can rendezvous with the science team in her fourth and final transition between universes. Lee gets busy coordinating the transportation while the two Olivias share a reflective moment - a lot has changed since
♪ It's Just A Jump To The Left, But It's The Pelvic Thrust, That Really Drives You Insane, Let's Do The Time Warp Again ♪ Man I Love This Job !
the time they parted ways... and exchanged partners.

  Back in this universe, and Walter's Lab, September diligently moves forward with assembling the device that is intended to defeat the Observers once and for all. With several cylinders of lime green liquid refined from the strange quartz ore recovered by the team, the growing apparatus gains a key component and nears completion. One last part, a reactor core to initiate the massive amount of power generated by the device, is inserted and tested for functionality. The subsystem powers-up and displays maximum capacity is possible once the device is deployed - good news - until the initiating reactor slowly fades and decays into a worthless chunk of metal. September will need to adjust the plan and find the type of
Head! Move! Oh Come On Sir. It's Like A Virtual Planetoid. You're Blocking The Widescreen And The BoSoxs Are Finally Beating The Yankees
replacement core the mission demands.
Captain Windmark returns to his era in 2609 AD Manhattan with an update for his commanding officer. The Progeny Observer is profoundly unique with an intellect more advanced than their own and a capacity for emotional responsiveness far greater than the native humans. Not even the diagnostic equipment they have can measure the Anomaly's capacity... which is incomprehensible. Windmark anticipates that the fugitive science team intends to utilize the boy to defeat the invading forces. The boss is troubled by the entire affair - but there may be opportunity to advance the Observer cause and their own evolution by studying Michael. Disassemble Michael and preserve the pieces. Windmark fears the worst - and would rather destroy Michael and eliminate the potential threat completely.
After quickly escorting Olivia to Department of Defense Headquarters on Liberty Island, Lee and Olivia get a few seconds to catch-up on things while Dunham pops into the Facilities Office to double-check that they are heading to the part of the compound that will allow Olivia to immediately find
<Olivia> Boooo... I Am The Ghost Of Brandon Fayette Past. <Lee/giggling> Good One Liv. We Haven't Missed That Guy One Bit
Michael and kidnap him back to the alternate universe for extraction to safety. Olivia is curious about Secretary of Defense Bishop. How'd things turn out for him? Lee has good news - Bishop is out of the national political arena and retired in the Boston area, but keeps busy... at ninety years-old he still lectures at his old alma mater, Harvard. Lee gets a little nostalgic: It's crazy how life works out. Yup, and Olivia thinks Lee deserves all of the happiness he has now. Dunham returns with the verification she was seeking, they just need to relocate down the hall so Olivia can do her Cortexiphan thing. The trio finds the exact coordinates on their island that correspond to the location Broyles passed to the science team in the Observer occupied universe. Olivia checks her watch - with an hour left she needs to move fast. Dunham gives Olivia the go-get'em nod of approval and steps back to watch with Lee as Olivia makes her second trans-dimensional crossing in what should be a very quick rescue operation. Lee and Dunham will be waiting for Olivia when she gets back so they can rush her and Michael to Battery Park a few miles away. Olivia stands motionless as she releases herself to the trans-dimensional process, phases in and out a few times, then...

  ... THWUMP! Olivia
Last Chance To Let Me Go. I Don't Want To Get All 'Fire & Brimstone' To Make My Point. Plus Check My VIN #. I'm XB-678374Seven - Not Six
pitches back against the wall, having successfully made it back to her universe. That is the good news - the bad news is Michael is nowhere to be seen, the coordinates must have been wrong or Michael has been moved. The side effects of the massive Cortexiphan dosing are happening as suggested, too. Lee and Dunham are temporarily visible, then fade from sight as Olivia starts her search for Michael. This seems like the correct place. The cranial diagnostics from Michael's testing are still on the monitor in the Observers neurologic research lab. Olivia can't stay long and draws her weapon to begin a search of the facility. Not far away, armed Loyalists escort the scientists and Michael to the their next stop, the vivisection room - per orders from the commanding officer. Inside the operating room, the medical staff preps Observer Progeny XB-6783746 for termination and preservation, while Michael offers no resistance and seems unconcerned for his own well-being. The projected image of his vital thoracic organs tells his executioners where to begin.

[edit] ACT V

  Olivia begins her search of Detention Camp #17 severely disoriented by her last transition. Physically, she made the crossing, but continues to have the occasional vision of military
I Am Starting To Think That Walter Got My Cortexiphan Mixed-Up With His LSD. I'll Know When Monty Python Animation Starts Appearing
and civilian personnel from the parallel universe. Something ahead doesn't look right and she raises her pistol in defense, then shoots when she is certain she is back in the Observer occupied Liberty Island. Quickly around the corner to the security office and Olivia caps another Loyalist before he can draw on her, then a brief glance at his security monitors tells her exactly where Michael is. Inside the vivisection room, the horror is about to begin as the scientist there has a large assortment of pliers, snips, saws, scalpels, drills, etc... all ready to utilize. Groggily, Olivia presses on with her recovery mission. Personnel from both universes continue to fade in and out of sight until an Observer
I Hope Nurse Ratched Doesn't Smell That One. I Guess I Can Always Blame The Kid
materializes directly in front of Olivia and knocks her to the ground and her pistol well-away from her. Facing a superior physical opponent, Olivia taps into her reinstated Cortexiphan abilities and draws all of the electricity from the surrounding power fixtures. The resulting spark storm is enough of a distraction to the Observer that Olivia kicks herself clear and scrambles to her weapon with enough time to turn and kill the bald man. With the drain in electricity, one of the multi-redundant security systems, starts lock-down operations for the building. In the vivisection room, a second Observer appears directly next to Michael with orders for the staff to stay put until the breach situation has been resolved. Seconds after he steps out through a trans-dimensional portal, shots ring-out in the hallway just outside the vivisection room. Blasting her way into the room, Olivia has downed the Loyalist guards in the hall and doesn't hesitate to shoot the surgeon that is about to cut open Michael. Before security forces can respond, Olivia gathers Michael off his 'drain table' for the journey back to the alternate universe. Seconds later, an Observer materializes at the entryway and Olivia immediately embraces Michael and transitions back to the parallel Liberty Island. The Observer watches Olivia disappear, cocks his head briefly to calculate possibilities and probabilities, then disappears too.
Olivia and Michael return safely to the Department of Defense, but are no where near their support team, Agents Lee and Dunham. As the two set-out on foot to get
She Should Come Back More Often. We Can Do Lunch And Dish On Our 'Significant Others'
back to the part of the building Olivia departed from, the Observer who watched them vanish from the vivisection lab, crosses into the alternate universe in pursuit. Arriving just down the corridor from Olivia and Michael, the pursuing Observer repositions and appears directly in front of Olivia - quickly dropping her with a thunder punch to the shoulder. As she goes flying down the hall, the Observer starts after Michael to recapture him and return him to Detention Camp #17 and the Neurologic Research Unit. Before he can lay a hand on Michael, Lee and Dunham each fire a round into the interloper's skull. Relieved at the good timing of their arrival, Olivia has to shout a warning about a second Observer that made the trans-dimensional crossing directly behind Lee and Dunham. With pistols already in-hand they both turn and fire - killing the second intruder before he can act. Time to get a move on. The two Dunhams rush to get Michael to his boat ride ashore. Lee volunteers to stay in the building and pick-off any other Observers that decide to come across after Michael. Once ashore, two miles away at Battery Park, Olivia and Michael find the exact spot on the boardwalk where Walter and Astrid had set-up the viewing portal only a few hours earlier. Olivia can't thank Dunham enough - she and Lee have a beautiful family. Agent Dunham appreciates the kind words, but now Olivia has to go save hers - maybe get her daughter back in the process. Olivia embraces Michael, makes eye contact with her counterpart one last
Relax Windy. The Shrink Said There Would Be Days Like This. Happy Thoughts. Happy Thoughts
time before leaving, then releases herself to the process and...

 ... WOOMF. As planned, the science team is ready and waiting for them back in this universe. Everyone rushes in to greet Michael and friend and get the gang into the van and moving. Olivia is frazzled after 4 Cortexiphan crossings, 2 Observer beatings and a light show in less than three hours, but she has the presence of mind to warn everyone - they know she was there and escaped with the boy... the team doesn't have much time before the Observers will be coming for them.
  In his office at the precinct in Manhattan, Captain Windmark sits and makes notes as his Loyalist Lieutenant is 'called on the carpet' to report. The Lieutenant was one of only three officers who knew the location of their high-value detainee, Progeny XB-6783746. Windmark needs to know if that information was shared with anyone. The Lieutenant feels the gravity of Windmark's menace more than ever - so is completely forthright with the man who could aneurize his brain with one thought. Sir. Agent Broyles is the man I told. But he said, you said....
 In a large, understated apartment complex in New York City, dishonored Observer explorer, September, finds his way to Apartment #513 and an old colleagues door. Retired Observer, December, answers the door with a somber greeting, 'I never thought I'd see you again.' September isn't there for the lively chit-chat. Walter Bishop is back and they have the Observer progeny. September is calling in an old debt - he needs some support.

[edit] Quotes

"I made my choices. You made yours. I don't regret any of them and neither should you. You deserve all the happiness that you got." - Olivia (to former junior partner Agent Lee on a decades old decision that led him to find his way in the alternate universe with her counterpart, when he might have stayed and pursued his prurient interest in her if she had allowed it)

"It has developed an intellect more advanced than our own and a capacity for emotional responsiveness far greater than the native humans. ...it possesses capabilities our diagnostic instruments cannot measure and that we are... unable to comprehend. ...I believe the fugitives intend to use the Anomaly as a means to our destruction". - Captain Windmark (reporting to his commanding officer, on the Anomaly - Michael, finally realizing the 'ace-in-the-hole' potential the child has and the serious threat the Observer mission faces)
