Has anyone else started to get a Fringe storyline vibe from The Blacklist lately? Olivia vs. Elizabeth. Reddington vs. Walter. Just me?

Let me draw the parallels like this:

Olivia / Elizabeth: Underwent a life changing event as a young child; loner; repressed memories; once…

I almost said Astrid = Aram because SCIENCE [and smart, quirky], but I went with Lincoln because he worked with Liv AND Aram also kind of acts like’s got a puppy dog boy crush on Liz :D *has sads for Lincoln*

Also, Astrid became someone Walter trusted implicitly, even though he NEVAHAR got her name right (oh, the gags of that that would have us rolling laughing, ie ASTRISK), so I thought TPTB bringing in Navabi in that role maybe paralleled that dynamic closer. Although I think it’s safe to say that Red trusts Aram, heh.

I love where you’re going with all of your thoughts on this, though! I can’t wait to learn more!!

Nope and honestly I won’t go there. But just because I have only watched the first season of Fringe and I don’t recall much of its plot.

TBL is messy enough. I can’t bring in more into all the “I’m not even sure where this show wants to go”-musings going on in my mind. xD

But carry on… I saw fine-fair-things talking about it. She can add to this discussion I guess. :)

actually, Fringe was one of the most straight forward, comprehensive, emotion based, understandable and cleanly built arcs of any “mytharc” type show I’ve ever come across.

I mean, you have to have to hand-wave most of physics to get there, but they make it worth the ride and TBL could take several dozen pointers from Fringe on how to build a show. And a main female protag. and emotional resonance. 

I really think you’d like it if you watched it jazillia007, the first season is a little different, but once you get to “there’s more than one of everything” you’re into the meat of the thing.

It’s definitely on my “I need to finish watching it big time”-list, fine-fair-things! :D

I was so upset when Fringe ended. The show and it’s events became a part of my life while it was on. The story, so complicated, but not forced. The relationships felt so real, strong but so very vulnerable. I would definitely recommend watching it, if you get some spare time. It’ll get’cha, hook, line, and sinker, I bet :)

Also, nice to meet you, fine-fair-things!

Fringe vs. The Blacklist

Has anyone else started to get a Fringe storyline vibe from The Blacklist lately? Olivia vs. Elizabeth. Reddington vs. Walter. Just me?

Let me draw the parallels like this:

Olivia / Elizabeth: Underwent a life changing event as a young child; loner; repressed memories; once “activated”, became quite the bad ass, has her own boundaries of morality constantly pushed

Walter (or Walternate, since Walter had parts of his brain removed and wasn’t quite the same after) / Reddington: not afraid to push limits of social conscious & morality to get wanted results; knew the lead female character as a child and may have had a hand in their early development life chancing event; was thrust back into the child’s life once the child was an adult; had a hand in “activating” the lead female’s repressed memories…

If this follows suit, Elizabeth will need a Peter Bishop. And Reddington will have a Dr. Bell. We can already see the Cooper / Broyles connection. Astrid=Malik [Navabi], Charlie=Ressler, Lincoln=Aram…

Just me?

1. Liz has the warrior gene which means she is predisposed for violence, criminality, and risk taking behavior. I’m sure this will tie in to the myth arc at some point and it’s nice to see the Liz’s DNA theory come to fruition. [Link to info on warrior gene] [Another link]

2. We learned…

11. Or it’s neither Tom nor Gina? Maybe it’s a place where Liz is storing the memories and tangible objects that she has from earlier in her life. Things, rather than a person. Ties to the part of herself that she’s lived in denial about for all those years. The lies of herself are being shattered, but I find it hard to believe that she hasn’t, for whatever reason, held on to physical manifestations of her “other” self.

Man, and I knew they were going to do that. I just knew the door scene would be the final scene of this episode.

Do you think Reddington could have known, when he gave you this case…that you’d find out?

Mind Blown.

Two things: Red was the “government genius” that came up with the theory for Subproject 7.

AND

Liz is an unknowing participant in Subproject 7.

LISTEN to the Code Breaker reiterate the three stages to Liz. Sounds a LOT like what’s happening in her life.

EDITED TO ADD: It also sounds a lot like what may have happened to Red’s life, Mr. “Everything About Me Is A Lie” Reddington.

I think it’s because she genuinely can’t believe what she’s seeing / can’t believe her eyes.
