I thought it was telling us something . . . what, I wasn't sure, but there was a vibe about it.

I also thought this scene was odd. I have to believe it was shot like that for a reason, but maybe it was as simple as showing how different the other side is.. I dunno?
But that person with the mask was extra creepy, and the camera did focus on them for a bit. If that was just a random part of the scene, that is very weird for the writers to throw in.

I thought of 'advanced technology' and predetermination...As I have talked about a little before, Tales of FRINGE comic issue 4, Nina's issue, tells a back story in which she becomes pregnant with Bell's baby. The doctors tell her that her new arm is altering Nina's genes and can kill the baby, so she has to choose between her arm and her child. She talks to William about it and tries to persuade her to not have the baby and work with him at MD, but says he kows she has always wanted a family and the choose is hers. She chooses to have the baby...but one night before she has the surgery, she is struck by lightening in freak storm. The doctors told her she lost the baby, but if it hadn't been for her arm taking the brunt of the force, she would be dead too.

He was awake until five in the morning reciting the chemical compositions of his favorite beverages to me. That was right after he finished lecturing me on how I'd squandered my above-average intellect and my substantial education. All while he was standing there naked, because he prefers the breeze. "No matter who's at fault, you are my dad."
The clapping is intriguing.

I'm left with the impression: "they're the audience, they're not meant to be participants".
Its striking to me that they're literally "on the other side of the glass", and that that is not the first time we see that in this sequence-- we saw Altlivia pounding on glass trying to get someone's attention earlier, and being ignored.
Hmm. "The audience on the other side of the glass". Maybe they're us.

About the Storm. When she entered the alley and started to walk down it and then came the lightning and the thunder the first thing I thought of was William Bell's comment to our Olivia.
A storm is coming, perhaps the last and greatest storm of all, and I fear for our Universe.
Then I thought does the birth of this baby begin that stom.
Nifty. Certainly vibrates that way to me.

Hint the phrase "a storm is coming" was prominent in that series too -- actually, that phrase or close variants show up in not one but two science fiction/fantasy blockbusters.
Which leads to my speculation du jour:
Altlivia was pregnant with twins.
