The Consultant is the eighteenth episode of the fourth season of FRINGE. It first aired on 13 April, 2012. Walter visits Fringe Division in the alternate universe to lend his scientific expertise to the investigation of a recent destructive breach in the fabric between the two universes. David Jones initiates the next phase of his master plan. Colonel Broyles unknowingly raises suspicion with a DoD colleague.
It is a somber day in the alternate universe as Captain Lincoln Lee is buried by his fellow military members, civilian co-workers and immediate family. The dark, overcast day and constant drizzle has many under umbrella as the Honor Guard and Casket Escort pay respect to Lee and his family as he arrives at his final resting place. FD Agent Farnsworth and FBI Agent Lee wait in the car during the procession and delivery of Lee to his parents. Farnsworth is sad at the loss of Lee and is decidely uncomfortable at funerals, having buried her father only a few months earlier. She never knows what to say at a funeral. Lee is hanging back not only because he is new to the close knit Fringe Division family, his presence and image, identical to Captain Lee, may disturb family and friends at the ceremony. Lee assures Farnsworth that there is 'nothing you can say' at a funeral. Captain Lee's parents struggle with the weight of their loss, while nearby, Colonel Broyles struggles with his own burden - having dealt them the loss of their son. Mrs. Lee's axiom, children shouldn't die before their parents, hits a nerve with Olivia - Fringe Division will bring Lincoln's murderers to justice. That promise falls on Colonel Broyles ears as well... his ethical burden just doubled.
