Finally, after four seasons of Fringe, Astrid is stepping into the spotlight when the Astrids from both universes come together.
Early in Fringe's run, Astrid's conspicuously minimal dialogue became the topic of many a wager -- with fans betting how many lines she'd have in an episode -- and even spawned a drinking game in which viewers would take a drink every time Astrid was in a scene, but never spoke a word.
"It's a great drinking game," portrayer Jasika Nicole jokes, but cautions that her juicy story line in Friday's episode won't be offering opportunities for audience inebriation. "You are going to be so sober by the end of [Friday's] episode, you might even be disappointed."
TVGuide.com caught up with Nicole to find out what's in store for the Astrids' meeting, the David Robert Jones (Jared Harris) showdown and Peter's timeline troubles...

Dirty Sexy Money may be "down," but it's not out. Yet. And it is in that spirit that I bring you this video Q&A with William Baldwin and Seth Gabel, aka Patrick and Jeremy Darling.
Addressing the seeming incongruence of a series about the super-rich having appeal during our current economic downturn, Baldwin says, "You might think, 'What the heck do I have in common with these people?' But when you get into the relationships, the drama ... you can identify."
"Some people call [DSM] a 'guilty pleasure,' Baldwin goes on to say. "If it is
Welcome back Dirty Sexy Moneyites The Darlings were back in full swing no villainous stone left unturned This ep started out where it ended A birthday for Nick on the Darlings yacht turns into a nightmare but not the one expected Paddy and Tripp have been reconciled Lisa is missing and then turns up looking stunning but only after a very meaningful glance between Karen and Nick Ellen is also missing and spoken of as alcoholically indisposed again And Tripp hands over the keys to the yacht to Nick Nick thanks Tripp Has he crossed over to the dark side Lets back it upSimon and Karen are still at it and although she is spying for Daddy Simon tells her he loves her She says Thank you which is hilarious Ive done it You probably have too Anyhow anyone who seems as sweet and trusting as Simon cannot be trustworthy To hide the fact that she was toying with his mobile she picks up a crystal swan and asks Simon to tell he

Jeremy Darling already was a rather reckless lad but with his twin sister MIA thats one less check-and-balance for his bad-boy leanings Seth Gabel gave us a look at the nastier and naughtier Dirty Sexy Money airing Wednesday on ABC at 10 pmET Plus Whats it like having the coolest wife ever in Bryce Dallas Howard Matt MitovichTVGuidecom Theres a lot happening in the DSM premiereSeth Gabel Yeah Theres a lot going on They revamped everything and the first episode is definitely the coalescence of all those ideasTVGuidecom And its done in such a way that its easily accessible for a new viewerGabel Definitely A lot happened last season but we werent really building to an apex or any kind of climax Now everything starts over and gives everyone an opportunity to take a whole new ride with usTVGuidecom Jeremy still has feelings for Nicks wife obviouslyGabel Ive sort of been stalking her so Lisa knows that Im into her and shes a bit put off
Im not sure how many more eps of Dirty Sexy Money are in the can but I am worried we are going to get stuck in the middle of a serious cliff hangar I suspected when Tripp got on the phone and told the person on the line to find out what Simon wanted with the Darlings financials that it was Karen But I wasnt really sure until the last scene So if shes getting busy with Simon for her Dad then what are her reasons Is it just to get Nick Walking into the Nutcracker crying certainly got his attention Though I think Tripps reasons are far more business related And theres some question as to whether Tripp isnt using Nick to make it seem though hes protecting Karen from Simon And speaking of which Simon inviting Karen over to meet his ex was a little mean he could have warned her at least Because if he is just using her then why did he want to get approval from his ex unless Could the Princess be in cahoots with him aga
