Dabbling In Fringe Science
That future no longer exists, as Peter created the Bridge, instead of destroying the Red-Universe, thus eliminating the possibility of the future in which that event took place.

And that is exactly what I got out of it. Walter said there would be consequences but, it couldn't be worse then their future predicaments. Prison/ death/ destroyer of worlds where there was no future etc. I just don't understand why the scripting is so out of tune in season 4. Peter does a lot sees a lot says nothing much on screen about the future he witnesses, the creation of the universe in the observers mind (the Big Bang). He also thinks he is in the wrong place or timeline. He goes back and fourth with his assumptions of the timelines when he should of known a little more from his future time travel with cause and effect.

The timeline could have been re-written backwards and we could of started the season with the unknown (Peter) time traveler. Everything non-Peter related could of been overlooked by Fringe/FBI. Fringe could have focused more on where it stopped with ZFT and the guiding advancement evolutions of man without the corrupted timeline as it advanced 3 years without Peter, Walter and Olivia. The Non-trio of interference shows Jones plan play out this time.
