OK, so it's plain that Fauxlivia is pregnant with Peter's child. This is not a thread about this plot device's palatability for Fringe fans.
Rather, I had never heard of the term ROMAD before, which are the glyphs from this episode.
On Urban Dictionary I was able to find something interesting.
So, what is the significance for this show?Slang term describing a group of USAF airmen that were tricked into a job no one else wanted to do.
The USAF is on the hook to supply ground personnel to the US Army in regard to Close Air Support (CAS) operations. No pussy USAF officer (pilot) ever wanted to do this job, although they were tasked with it. Said pussies found a way to have less intelligent USAF officers (Navigators or worse, Weapons officers) do the job for them (see the adventures of Huckleberry Finn).
Peter was tricked to sleep with Fauxlivia... Was Fauxlivia tricked to get pregnant? Was this Walternate's plan all along? He doesn't want to hurt children, but bringing more into the "worlds" is part of his machinations? Remember when the chief Shape Shifter told Olivia she wouldn't be able to complete her task because of a moral quandary?
Read the full Urban Dictionary definitions, as it also says that ROMADS later proved brilliant at their jobs and better than the ones originally assigned.
It's my guess that Walternate plans on injecting Bolivia's child with Cortexiphan....since he just found out that it doesn't wok well on adults.
Mad Scientist wanna-be
is important.Like i said in the Fauxlivia/Frank thread,Fauxlivia didn't had nor the choice nor the alternative for the mission she got assigned to in the our universe.Slang term describing a group of USAF airmen that were tricked into a job no one else wanted to do.
And also this
So i guess you have a winner on the matter of what Romad means.
I would agree that the romand meaning how Olivia feels that "she is me but better". I also don't think that, I think she is actually BETTER because she has gone through very tough things and come out a very strong person. She just has to learn to get over her own insecurities.
Read further down on the Urban Dictionary definition and you will see that ROMAD also can stand for "Rough on Mothers and Daughters"...
Perhaps a tip that gender of the child will be female.

About romad, maybe Walternate knew that eventually she would get pregnant, due to advanced stage their (P/O) relationship was.. maybe was Fauxlivia who got tricked. Plus it's PETER'S child, and Peter's the only one the device reacts to. Maybe someone with his blood...
..But that brings us back to the whole testing on children thing...
Wordless because it's so beautiful on it's own.
The updated meaning for ROMAD in the military is "Recon Observe Mark And Destroy"
Either of these meanings could certainly apply to things happening on Fringe, but which is it?
I believe the Pregnancy was planned well in advanced.
the definition is quite misleading it's not USAF slang, it's a USAF acronym that means Recon, Observe, Mark And Destroy. In simplistic terms it's the airforce's ground troops whose job it is to coordinate airforce operations, scout and mark targets etc.
In fringe terms it's fOlivia's job in our universe. Recon Observe, Mark and Destroy.
