It is not very often you will find a heart moving story in a sci-fi series.

While Fringe has had some of them at times, this episode by far, is the most remarkable and moving one.

While we witness Walter finds someone who can truly understands him ( mind you it is not very often - he can understand the grief he caused however not many examples that he was by others.) we also see a time travel story - not a unique idea but thinking how many of us wanted to travel through time to be with the ones we loved once, it fits all beautifully.

Every one of us has our regrets, been late to say something to someone we loved. Some of us wished to be long gone with the ones we love and miss.

Easier to say than it is done. We found ourselves in these pieces of art, TV series, songs, novels. We want to be understood and we want forgiveness.

That's why we loved this episode so much more than the others perhaps. Remarkable acting reflects whatever we want to have.
