Dies in: "The Bullet That Saved the World" (Season 5, Episode 4)
Last-minute mulligan notwithstanding, Etta Bishop seemed untouchable. The fifth season of Fringe completely reset the chess board, jumping forward two decades to an Earth overrun by Observers, invaders from a future where Earth is used up.The premiere sees Etta Bishop, the resistance’s most prized fighter, reunited with her parents (and protagonists) Olivia and Peter, frozen in amber and away from her for almost the whole duration of the occupation.
Surely, of all the final season fuckery that could go down, the Fringe gods wouldn’t reunite the Bishop family just to tear them apart again, right? Welcome to episode four—still the first act of the season, mind you—where Etta not only catches a fatal bullet, but then detonates an anti-matter bomb as a final fuck you. We have seen the future, and it is bleak.
