John Pyper-Ferguson (Brothers & Sisters) plays an expert on serial killers who is recruited by the Olivias to track down his alt-self, who on the Other Side has been on quite the rampage. Peter, meanwhile, finds a new way to tap on Walter’s shoulder — for better or for worse.And a short review from Matt Roush at TV Guide:
Tonight's Top Pick: When worlds collide, Fox's cult gem Fringe (9/8c) is at the top of its game. You've never seen a murder-mystery manhunt like tonight's chilling and provocative episode, in which the Fringe team from the "other" world enlists "our" Olivia to cross over to track down a serial killer in the alt-universe — by bringing along the madman's doppelganger from our world, who happens to be a professor specializing in forensic pathology and profiling. The "what-if" vibes are fascinating as the professor — and by extension everyone in the dual-universe loop — considers the vagaries of fate and environment when confronted with "the path not taken." The story is suspenseful, poignant and wonderfully original.And yeah, Alphas looks like a recurring gig. The show will be back in 2012.
Also on TV tonight: Tahmoh Penikett guest stars in the season finale of Haven (10 pm, Syfy). Photos and teaser here.
