Trivia

In this episode, one pivotal character is named "Verona" and another character takes a drug that makes him appear to be dead but which really only knocks him out for awhile. Both of these are references to William Shakespeare's play "Romeo and Juliet": the play takes place in Verona, and Juliet takes an apothecary's drug that makes her only appear to be dead. See more »

Goofs

In the lab, Walter asks for car batteries, a voltage transformer, and a corpse. A regular voltage transformer would only work with alternating current, while the car batteries only supply direct current; hence, no transformation of the voltage would occur. See more »

Quotes

Peter Bishop: SPOILERS: I am not from here, am I? You didn't just open a hole to the other side... you went through and you brought me back. That's why I was able to survive Newton's device. That's why I can't remember my childhood.

Who Came from the Other Side?

"The Man from the Other Side" is another intriguing episode of "Fringe". Now Peter has discovered the truth that Olivia and Walter have tried to tell him. But the great question is who has come from the other side? My vote is eight.
