Meanwhile, Olivia's happily reading A Winter's Tale, which I'm sure has all kinds of parallels and references in tonight's episode of Fringe but I didn't sign on for no book-readin' to go with my television-watchin'. Then her stepdad comes in and lights into her, because apparently he already told her to go to bed, and dammit, he meant that! Olivia bolts and runs through the house -- and then she's suddenly in an empty field, dark. She looks around, confused, and then looks up shocked, as some large object's shadow slides over her -- and then she's back at home, with her stepdad finishing his threat: "... ever run from me!" And he grabs her by the back of his head. Hmmm. Stepdad seems to have taken her disappearance and reappearance completely in stride.
The next morning, Elizabeth is cheerfully making breakfast for Peter, who sits glowering at her. "Do you really think I don't know that you're not my mother?" Jesus, kids, amirite? It's always the same thing with them: "I want a cellphone! Can you drive me to the mall? You're not my mother because my mother is in an alternative universe!"
She doesn't want to get into this, asking how many questions she's going to have to get right before he believes her. "You got some wrong," he points out, but she says maybe he's confused because he was so sick. "He makes you say that, doesn't he? 'Cause he's the one who stole me," says Peter. "Stole you from where, Peter?" she asks. "From the other world at the bottom of the lake," says Peter. He says he knows that he sounds crazy, but he's not. Elizabeth decides they should get some air. Maybe run some errands, head down to Decorative Cinderblock Warehouse to replace the one that's at the bottom of Reiden Lake.
