The Boy Must Live is the eleventh episode of the fifth season of FRINGE. It first aired on January 11th, 2013. Walter finds more clues during sensory deprivation, helping the team locate September in his modest quarters. Captain Windmark reports to his Commander with a request for a variance in their grand scheme - and a requirement to capture the rogue Fringe Division science team. Young Michael sacrifices himself for the team.


  Late at night in Walter’s lab, Peter is working overtime to liberate another videotape with the laser system they have for the task. Outside the

street level facility, a set of headlights races through the Harvard restricted zone to another destination. The potential threat catches Peter off-guard and he hurriedly flips off the bright laser to avoid any possibility of detection. Once he thinks he is clear to continue, he flips the laser back-on and returns to the delicate work. Seconds later, he becomes hyper-wary and quickly turns with his pistol drawn to defend against someone lurking in the shadows of the lab. Walter! What are you doing up? Walter apologizes for startling his son. He has been thinking, always dangerous by itself, but he is confident he may know how to retrieve his fragmented memories of the plan to defeat the Observers. He needs to spend some time in the sensory deprivation tank to recollect some of the visions young Michael shared with him – there were some images of September, and in context, that may help the team locate him – the still unaccounted for Donald.
  The next morning in the lab, Walter and the science team, with Michael overseeing operations, generates an experiment to get Walter’s memory bank back to full capacity. Olivia checks on Walter to see if he is ready for the thought stimulating deprivation that she has previously endured more
Let Me Think. There. It Is All Coming Back To Me Now. I Left All Of My Weed And Dope In Seven Different Bank Vaults Around The Country
than once. Walter is more than ready – and unencumbered by swim trunks – he is taking on his mission ‘commando-style’. Not what she was expecting to witness this particular day, Olivia is willing to leave well enough alone as Walter is isolated with all of the probes, monitors and drugs needed to accomplish his goal. Once Walter relinquishes his mind to the images Michael passed to him, his physiology shoots through the roof – blood pressure, synaptic patterns, etc... all indications spike. Still responsive, Walter is well and what he starts to envision is incredible. His mind is travelling around a virtual freeze-frame room where Fringe Division-friendly September is looking out of his apartment onto the cityscape. This is what Michael shared with him. With Peter coaching him from just outside of his salt water enclosure, Walter begins to mentally explore the surroundings he is bringing out of his repressed memory. Apart from the hair on September’s cranium, the home is otherwise unremarkable. How about outside the apartment? As the fog and overcast clear, Walter can see the top of the Empire State Building in Midtown Manhattan
♪I've Got My Fedora On My Head - My Head's In Overload - Consumed By Native Jazz - And Soon Peter Bishop's Dead... It's Been A Long Day ♪
on the other side of the river. He is close to one the bridges crossing the East River. Astrid has been following along and triangulating as Walter describes his vision – it looks like September resides near the base of the Williamsburg Bridge, based on the angle of Walter's view. Her best calculations say that September’s apartment is in Brooklyn near the base of where the bridge used to be. Peter can only guess that if September is still alive, he could be living in the same place. The team might as well start its search there. Walter is upbeat and optimistic, a uniquely new outlook on life for him recently – let’s hurry down there.

  In his office at the Observer Precinct in Manhattan, Captain Windmark sits and listens again to the garbled phone call Nina Sharp had in her office at the Ministry of Science recently. Collected from the sonic residue in Nina's office, the call has him focused and calculating the possibilities. Nina sacrificed her life to protect what she knew about the science team and their new charge - Michael, the young Observer progeny that eluded extermination as a genetic-engineered anomaly from the future. Windmark's lieutenant joins him with the news that Windmark's superior officer is prepared to meet with him presently. Windmark prepares for the short trip to the Commander's by donning his Fedora and overcoat, grabbing his briefcase and issuing his departing orders. Continue searching for the fugitives and alert me if there are any new developments. Windmark turns to his office windows, and instead of checking the weather or the traffic outside for his journey, he steps through the trans-dimensional portal he just created... and into the large domed plaza at his Headquarters. A quick check of the skyline confirms he hasn't gone far - 2609 AD Manhattan is just as smoggy, dreary and oppressive as he remembers it from his last visit home.


  In West Brooklyn, at the base of the Williamsburg Bridge into Manhattan, high-speed monorails dash toward downtown as Walter exits the minivan on a quest. He immediately turns and finds the source of the vision he re-accessed in the sensory deprivation tank - there - there is the window he was looking out of. Eager to gain entry, Walter hurries toward the apartment complex, more excited than anything else he has been passionate about lately. Peter dashes to keep up with his ninety-plus year old father and find out what has him so energized. Walter feels good - simple. When young Michael touched Walter,
No Dad. That Is Not Butterscotch Old Spice ®. And If You Lick Me Again, I Will Certainly Knee You Square In The Stones
all he thought he ever knew seemed insignificant. Walter now remembers everything... even things from the timeline he never experienced... things from Peter's youth that he missed when Peter died in this timeline - and details from when Peter retrieved him from Saint Claire's to join the Fringe Division - in the other timeline. And the joy and terror Peter brought to his life, like when he stepped into the Wave Sink Device. Walter can't explain what Michael shared with him - just the elation he feels. The bad news is the master plan to defeat the Observers was not part of the shared vision. Walter knows only that he feels more love for Peter than ever before - that is the source of his exultation, and now he has no desire to have any part of his brain removed to prevent a regression to his harsh, alter-superego self. Peter can live with that and grants a big bear hug to confirm the new contract. Olivia and Michael hang back and watch as the Bishop Boys reach a new level in their paternal bond.
In 2609 Manhattan,
I Sold The Ambered Olivia Dunham To Some Guy Named Markham. Oh. Hi Walter. Totally Knew It Was You. Hi Liv. Pete. I Was - Uh - 'Just Kidding'
Captain Windmark waits patiently for his meeting with his Commander and finally gets word the boss is ready to hear him out. Inside the office, Windmark explains that Anomaly XB-6783746, Michael, has been found and is being hidden in the past, in the year 2036. For what purpose? Windmark hasn't determined that yet, but in his reasoning, whoever hid the progeny child did so to ensure its survival - because they thought him important.

  In Brooklyn, Walter scans the upstairs windows of the apartment complex and recognizes which one he was staring out of during his recollected vision. That one. There! Inside the building, the foursome finds its way around the nicely decorated facility and locates doorway #211, the apartment that Walter is certain to hold the next key in the mystery of his missing colleague. After ringing the buzzer and a confident knock, a half dozen locks unbolt and September cracks the door open to greet his visitors. Walter - You're alive. I never thought I'd see you again. That's understandable - we were frozen in time... trapped in Amber for the past twenty-one years. The not-so-young Michael draws September's most heartfelt attention. He kneels down, lowers the boy's hood and looks fondly into his eyes.


  In September's apartment overlooking the East River and Manhattan, the fugitive science team, Public Enemy #1, settles-in for a reacquaintance session and some Q-and-A. First thing is first... how did you find me? It wasn't easy - they have been piecing together the clues left on the videotapes Walter made two decades ago. When they got to the pocket universe to recover the boy
I Like This Music Box. You Said My Mother Wanted Me To Have It When I Grow-Up. What's Her Name Again? And When Do I Start Growing?
, Michael, all they left with was the radio. When the radio eventually began working, they found Carolyn and Richard on Thimble Island harboring the Observer progeny. It's been quite a circuitous route and they have lost a bunch of good people along the way that sacrificed for the cause... as soon as Peter says that, he checks Olivia and gets the subtle nod of concurrence... her foster mom, Nina, and their sole offspring, Henrietta. September explains what he can, amazed that Walter's memory was wiped so clean of all the details. When he disappeared from the Lab with his gunshot wound to the chest (The End Of All Things), his colleagues removed his brain implant as punishment for his repeated interference in the timeline. They studied him as he went through the biological reversion process to a more natural human state. He was deposited back in this timeline after they were through experimenting on him, which is fine by September, aka Donald, this era in history interests and appeals to him most. And the Donald alias? - from actor/dancer/singer Donald O'Connor and the classic movie, Singing In The Rain. The first movie he and Walter watched together after September was reverted and returned to the era. Michael has been waiting patiently and seems bored. September retrieves a small music box from a trinket case and cranks the small handle on it to release a familiar tune. Michael seems less disinterested and takes over the chore of cranking out the tune from the small mechanical device. Walter is curious about the boy's origin. September explains that Michael was, or will be, born hundreds of years from now in a laboratory, like all Observers. Well before that, in 2167, a scientist in Oslo, determined that the human intellect could be expanded by co-opting portions of the brain that has been previously dedicated to processing emotion, instead using it for cognitive function. That scientific breakthrough eventually led to the Observer population, where things like jealousy, anger, greed, and aggression were abandoned in favor of intellectual capacity. The downside was that society became so intelligent and efficient, that it lost perspective of the value emotion added to life... and things like empathy, compassion, and love were machined-out of humanity too. Even romantic love gave way to reproductive
I Need Me Some Red Bull - This Vegan Blue Bull Just Doesn't Have The Ooompf I Need
technologies to git'r done.

In 2609 Manhattan, Captain Windmark is busy researching the history of the child progeny, XB-6783746, at the bio-reproductive facility that generates fresh talent from the gene pool available and selected to receive the brain stem implants used to further their society. The Observer scientist-in-charge calls up the data Windmark needs and notes that the progeny was pulled from the program before it had matured because its brain had developed differently than other offspring. Windmark is curious who may have had a unique interest in this individual - whose genetic material was used to create this progeny?

  In September's apartment, he admits that something had stirred in him, during his time travels to this era - and how fathers cared for and protected their sons. The experience was something he could not ignore. That is when he took Michael from the future and hid him in the past, for his own safety. Walter realizes exactly what isn't being told. Progeny XB-6783746 was derived from September's genetic contribution - Michael is his
I Remember This Guy. I Thought We Would Never Hear From Him Again When We Made Him A Broadway Star For The Native Theater Goers

With the information he garnered from the historical database on genetics, Captain Windmark returns to his superior officer with the pertinent information, and a request. The genetic donor for the missing Anomaly was one of the original twelve science team that traveled back in time to observe primitive humanity. His codename is September and he was banished for sympathizing with the fugitives they are tracking in 2036 - the same fugitives who are in possession of Progeny XB-6783746. Windmark, however, does not know why they are protecting him. What he would like from the Commander is to suspend the current timeline protocol and travel to a moment in history where he can eradicate these individuals. The boss won't allow it, believing that the fugitives are inconsequential and pose only a minimal threat. Any disruption in current protocol at this point might diminish the nearly perfect chance they currently estimate in succeeding in their overall mission. Windmark is more intent on the small probability, one-in-a-million, the boy poses in contributing to mission failure - he should not have survived, yet he did. The Commander senses that something more has one of his top officers preoccupied. It does - Windmark admits that he has become consumed with ending the fugitives existence... an obsession he does not understand. Request denied. Protocol will remain intact.


  Sitting in September's apartment, the group discusses the greater plan to defeat the invading Observers. Peter gets to the gist and goes directly for the big bonus round points straight away - how does Michael fit into the larger scheme? Michael is more than just an anomaly, he is a hybrid
Feel My Empathy Aunt Olive. THIS Is How You Make ĦŌŦ Cocoa. Tobasco. Essence Of Serrano. Little Capsacin Marshmallows. Dad. You Rock!
that has the intelligence of the tech-enabled Observers and the emotional range of a regular human to include empathy, compassion and empathic skills. The big plan involves sending Michael forward in time to 2167 to meet and dissuade the scientists that took humanity down the path away from its emotional capacity. Given the chance to know and understand Michael, they will realize a higher intelligence and enlightenment is possible - then swerve away from the course that will lead to an Observer dominated future, effectively eliminating the current threat too. If Observers never exist... they can never invade. September knew Michael was important before the Observers reverted him biologically, and once he could no longer travel in time, that's when Walter was called in to help send Michael into the next century. A rundown of the items recovered so far on the videotape scavenger hunt suggests that the plan is a few items short of the required components needed. September has a storage locker nearby and can help with the missing components, as well as with the insanely complex physics equations no one on the team has been able to decipher yet. Some of the components he has hidden are really exotic, things he took from the future, decades ago. The holographic blueprint Walter has will allow them to assemble the device that can get Michael up to 2167 to work his magic. Olivia has been relatively quiet, absorbing the information-sharing, then heads to the kitchen to grab a glass of water. Peter goes along to check on her - are you okay? Maybe. All of the time-travel, Observer-squashing, tech-talk has Olivia believing that in this deal, they are going to get their daughter back some how. The plan - resets time Peter! Olivia can see in Peter's face that he isn't entirely on-board with the concept. You don't believe it? No, Peter wants Henrietta back more than anything and wants to believe it will happen, but his pragmatism is overshadowing her optimism at this point - we've still

got a long way to go
before we get close to that particularly happy-ending.
  Back in his Manhattan office in 2036, and carrying on his duties, Windmark takes a briefing from one of his assistants and learns that September was detained at a mine in 2015 while extracting rocks from it. The reason he was collecting the specimen was not ascertained during questioning, but the former Observer was released and branded as a ‘known offender’. Windmark knows that labeled offenders are tagged and orders location measures be taken
A French Lady In Her Sleeping Gown - Covered In Soot? I Don't Understand. I Can Do That To The Entire Planet If I So Choose - And I Just Might
to find September’s address. The assistant places a call and initiates proceedings to find Chip Number 784651.

  A short while later, Captain Windmark and two of his subordinates step through trans-dimensional portals directly into September’s apartment across the East River from Manhattan. With pistols drawn, the two back-up men begin searching the apartment. Windmark seems fascinated with the piano and the sheet music. One man finds a bloody towel in the sink along with pointy tweezers. It appears the tracking chip has been removed and destroyed... the likely reason they were not able to track the dishonored Observer before they arrived. The cocoa mug next to the couch is still warm - someone was just here. Have footage from the surveillance cameras in the area reviewed immediately. Windmark investigates the bedroom. In the room, full of collectibles, a snow globe with local landmarks catches his primary attention. The flip of a switch on the sound system fills the space with soft, soulful jazz music.

  Not far from September's apartment, Peter pulls the minivan over and parks as everyone prepares to help retrieve the needed equipment from
He's... He's Touching My Snowglobe! Windmark - Dead! Invaders - Dead! Neidermeyer - Dead! <Walter> Lighten Up Donny. Use The Bug Zapper
Donald's storage unit. Walter wants everyone to stay put - he will go and retrieve what they need along with the former Observer. Before anyone can do anything, September's handheld comm system alerts him to a security breach in his home. He shows the live video feed to everyone - Windmark and his posse located his home - there is no going back there every again. The small anti-personnel device he remotely activates will almost certainly guarantee that.

  As Windmark stands and assesses September's jazz preference, one of his associates joins him in the bedroom. Windmark looks down at the strangest thing - his subordinate's foot is tapping in time with the music on the hard oak floor. Odd - yes, as the two share a brief glance of ignorance as to the cause of rhythm. Not so odd is the realization that a flashing green light over the door suddenly turns red as a small light bomb in the apartment detonates in an attempt to assassinate them. Instinctually, both men immediately establish and transit a trans-dimensional portal to the street below before they are totally engulfed by the quantum event. A quick check of the second-story home confirms they barely escaped with their lives.


  Outside of
<Windmark> Ha! Missed Me. Oh No. I Had Two Guys & Exited With One. Damn - More Paperwork. At Least September Will Lose His Security Deposit
Donald's apartment, Captain Windmark studies the gaping hole in the side of the room he was just standing in. The rest of the building is intact and it seems the detonation was intended solely to eliminate anyone in that particular part of the apartment. Loyalist security vehicles arrive with the latest information on the missing known offender. Security footage shows the fugitive group not far away at the corner of Front and South 6th Streets, getting into their vehicle. That was only fourteen minutes earlier, so they must still be fairly close. Windmark orders a perimeter established around the neighborhood - maybe he can catch his fugitives and the child progeny at a checkpoint or with Loyalist foot patrols.
  September leads Walter to his storage garage and both enter to recover the components needed to complete the device they designed two decades earlier. September immmediately locates the few parts and pieces they require, then realizes that Walter wanted to be alone in the garage so they could talk privately. Walter tells him about the encounter in the Harvard lab where Michael touched him and imparted all types of experiences and memories to him. Michael shared his awareness of a separate timeline where he and Peter were pulled from Reiden Lake by September. The hitch that Walter is just figuring-out is that when September told him - The boy is important. He must live - he was talking about his son... Michael must live.
Hang On A Sec Dub-Bee, They Are Right Here. As Fresh As The Day You Bought 'Em... Vacuum-Sealed... Tah-Duh... !! Red Vines® !!
The other kicker is that, in the end, Walter must sacrifice himself for the plan to work. September confirms it - both things are accurate. The whole concept is intimidating to Walter, but he supposes that the other visions he was enlightened with, the incredible moments and connections he has shared with others - all were to remind him that he was and is loved. September asks the question... you don't remember that sacrificing yourself was part of the original plan? Nope. Walter doesn't recall that little tibdit of data. September recounts Walter's thinking at the time: you had caused so much unintended damage, this sacrifice was your chance to make amends. The white tulip from the other timeline was important in giving Walter the strength of character he needed - hope and absolution, and the courage to continue the battle, and
We Don't Have To Dumpster-Dive For Food Walter Just Because You Guys Are Fugitives. There's A Nice Denny's Right Around The Corner. My Treat
ultimately sacrifice himself. Walter muses to himself, he could use that tulip about now. September doesn't know where it is or what Walter did with it before Ambering the science team.

  Outside, Walter and September return to the minivan with a few of the items they need to go ahead with the plan to defeat the Observers. September needs to gather a few more items elsewhere and will join them later when he has collected the rest of the components. Everyone wishes September well, including Michael his son. September squats low to make eye-to-eye contact with Anomaly XB-6783746 and touches his hand - he will see him again... that's a promise.

  Starting the drive out of Brooklyn back to the laboratory in Boston, Olivia reflects on how she used to love this particular borough of New York City. A few seconds later, 2036 Brooklyn loses even more
'Walter's Deli'... May I Take Your Order Please? Oh, Sorry Liv. I Thought It Was Anil. We Have Been Playing Flirty Phone Tag All Afternoon
of its appeal when the group turns the corner and comes face-to-face with a Loyalist checkpoint, part of Windmark's short notice directive to throw up a dragnet to catch the fugitives and Michael. Driving casually, Peter redirects the van away from the checkpoint only to find another one a block away. The attempt to escape from New York diverts into an alleyway and a brief stop to call Astrid for some long distance technical help. If she can do it, Olivia wants Astrid to tap into the the Resistance Network, then hack into the live camera feeds in the area. They need to find a route around, or through, the roadblocks that are being set-up. Astrid calls up the network on her tablet and finds a realtime graphic of current Loyalist blockades and checkpoints in the Williamsburg corner of Brooklyn. The established perimeter totally surrounds the science team... there is no way to drive out undetected.


<LP7> Lima Papa 7 To Lima Leader. Did You Say Shoot All Of The 'Fugitives' Or All Of The 'Fudge Sticks' <HQ> Lima Papa 7 - Return To Base
in a back alley inside of the urban perimeter established by the Loyalists, the science team prepares to abandon the vehicle and proceed on foot to elude capture. Walter packs the items retrieved from September's storage garage and worries - did September make it out? If not, they can't leave him behind. Peter knows that can't go back for him, they'll just have to wait for September to contact them. Olivia checks in with Astrid on the status of the search for them. Astrid thinks she has a small hole for the team to slip through to safety, but they will need to quickly sneak about four blocks South and get to the train platform for a ride home. Peter checks ahead and finds that the route to freedom is already beginning to collapse, so the team splits-up - Olivia with Michael won't draw much attention, while the Bishop Boys find their own way. The two groups maintain contact on their handheld comm devices as more fascist enforcers flood the neighborhood. Olivia and Michael make it to the commuter train
<Windmark> Want To See A Trick? I Can Make That Loyalist's Nose Bleed. <Michael> Want To See A Better Trick? I Can Make Your Nose Bleed
first and navigate their way around and through the growing number of armed patrols. The Bishops are a few minutes behind and Olivia warns them that the patrols have started searching the train. When Peter and Walter make it to the train platform, Olivia spots them and talks them forward to car they are in. Peter sees a large Loyalist patrol headed directly toward them, so turns and guides Walter away and into the nearest car, avoiding visual detection. Olivia can see that things aren't going well for her and Michael, when the armed inspectors prepare to board the car they are in. Before Olivia can do anything, Michael steps from the vehicle just as the doors close... essentially surrendering himself to save the science team. Peter and Walter get to the car just as the train departs the station. He's gone! Olivia walks aft and watches as Michael is led away to meet someone that is very interested in his future. Captain Windmark turns and greets his quarry. Hello.


"I can't explain it, but... when the boy touched me, he showed me more than just images. It was freeing, Peter. All at once, I understood that everything I’ve ever known - - or thought I knew, as a great man - - could fit into a thimble." - Walter (to Peter, on the life altering vision he was endowed with)

"I am experiencing something that I do not understand. The idea of ending their existence... consumes me." - Captain Windmark (to his Commanding Officer, about the passion the rogue Fringe team rials in him)

"He was born hundreds of years from now. Like all of our kind, he was created in a lab, using the genetic material of a designated donor. It was a process that began generations earlier, with a discovery on February 20th, 2167, by a scientist in Oslo, Norway, who was trying to find ways to increase human intelligence. He realized that if he could rewire the portion of the human brain that induces jealousy, he could increase cognitive function, sacrificing emotion for intelligence. This discovery was the catalyst of the creation of the beings that you called Observers, and his work carried on, and more and more emotions were seen as roadblocks to higher intelligence. Things like anger, greed, aggression, they were abandoned in the pursuit of intellect. Eventually, Humanity became so intelligent and efficient, they lost perspective of the value of these emotions - - Not only the negative ones, but the positive as well, and soon empathy, compassion, and love became messy distractions, and they too were machined out, and without romantic love, they developed new reproductive technologies." - September (to Walter, refreshing the memories erased in order to preserve the life of young Michael after the Purge in November 2015)

"You heard September, the plan is gonna reset time. Peter, that boy in there, he's how we're going to see ‘Etta again." - Olivia (to Peter, quietly hopeful, almost desperate in her belief that the hybrid Observer progeny will bring events full circle to a time when science errs on the side of humanity, vice technological advancement)

"The tulip was important. I took it from the other timeline, and kept it. When we devised the plan to stop The Invasion, you didn't think we could succeed. You doubted yourself. I knew the tulip would give you strength, as it had before. It was your symbol of hope and absolution. It gave you the courage to push on. At that time, I needed to give you back the hope that we could win." - September (to Walter, imparting the memory of an heirloom Walter deemed pivotal in the battle, yet neither man knowing where it is or how it will turn alter the tide of battle)


  • Full Circle. September lives next to the East River in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Northwest Brooklyn in 2036, following his disbarring from the ranks of the Observers. Near the East River in Williamsburg is where the first Beacon (The Arrival) bored to the surface in 2008, September's first Observer-centric episode.
