Observing The Pattern
Cortexiphan kids and Season 5
So I've been thinking about this episode again lately and a number of things that happened in it. Do we think we'll see the Cortexi-kids again? They made a point of Nick Lane escaping so he could easily return.
And Nick Lane said that Olivia had been helping Jones' and Bell's plans in a way. What did that mean? Is Nick referring to Olivia being the power source to collapse the universes? Surely Nick wouldn't know that much about the plan.
So I guess I'm asking: Do you see the Cortexi-kids appearing again, and what was Nick Lane's interrogation scene all about, now that we've seen the finale?
I Love You Too, John
I'm not sure if we'll see the Cortexi-kids returning, unless the team needs their pooled powers again.
Cracking the Equation
It's not completely out of the question of course. Bridge closed, why not using them again if a contact is needed with the other side?
And also, Nick having been "pairing" with Olivia for the trials, could it be that h'ell be the best choice for another try for Bell?
Observing The Pattern
While there remains a part of me that does make me want to see them again, I would hope not. The Jones/new universe arc appears to be over, and we are transitioning into an arc fully based around the future world domination by the Observers. I would theorise that another element added to the mix of season 5 may damage the focus of the final season, though it is clear with Etta that cortexiphan kids (or in Etta's case cortexiphan developed kids) may pose one of the major threats against Observerkind. If they were to take that route, it would be justified and also act as a way of (maybe) fufilling the principles of ZFT, which is oddly missing in the amber timeline.
Leap of Faith
I would like to see the cortexiphan kids again, and think they might bring them back. They are really effective at juxtaposing Olivia with the rest of Walter/Bell's collateral damage. For all that Bell and Walter did to Olivia...she did meet Peter through the whole thing, and she is a 'soldier, a protector.' As miserable as she is at times, she's doing what she was meant to do (as she see's it). Furthermore, she would be a damaged child regardless, with her stepfather and all.
Olivia has, in many ways, forgiven Walter. Bell, not so much. And Nina, yes, who probably had something to do with the trials as well. It's important to see The Others, the ones who haven't.
I don't really care much if we see them as a troupe of super-powered individuals...but I hope they make a return, even if it's only a reference in dialogue.
