In episode 504 of The Fringe Podcast we discuss Fringe season 5 episode titled, “In Absentia.” Darrell uses information about Simon and the angel device to update his theory about the Observers and shapeshifters. Clint shares his musings on the motivation of the Observers and why they chose to invade at this specific moment in time. We also discuss the character of Gael Manfretti and how he might come into play later this season. We discuss the character development between Olivia and Etta, why this felt more like a normal Fringe episode, and how long the video tape scavenger hunt might take. Clint shares insights into retina scanners and other types of security measures in our science of tomorrow segment.

In this episode we also announce the Bridge the Backstory CONTEST! This contest begins now, and concludes on October 31, 2012. Click here for the full details on the contest, prizes and rules.
