Joshua Jackson and Mary Beth Peil
(Cue up that annoying Paula Cole song)
I don't want to wait/for our lives to be over...
(OK, that's enough.)
Would it be too embarrassing to reveal how much of a touchstone Dawson's Creek was on my own Massachusetts upbringing? Yes? It would? OK then, never mind.
Instead, let me reveal exclusively that there will be a Dawson's Creek reunion on Fringe! See which Capesider is joining Joshua Jackson after the jump.
Britney Spears, Katie Couric, Christina Aguilera
Is there nothing that television can't make us do? Britney Spears did her best impression of a pop star, making us doubt her icon status. She didn't say a word, but Katie Couric — for a moment — made us forget the real news. And Christina Aguilera did what we thought was impossible: She made us fall in love with the Grammys again. Check out our Top Moments of the week ...
Olivia, Peter and Walter investigate a string of bank robberies where the baddies walked through vault walls to get to specific safe deposit boxes. We also found out that Walter may be connected to these robbers, as is the infamous Mr. Jones from a few episodes back. In other news, Olivia got drunk in order to score some intel and Peter likes card tricks.
We already know that Fringe's Agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) has a ticked-off stepfather somewhere out there who may or may not be stalking her. But before he makes an appearance, read on to meet Olivia's sister...
A man is murdered by what we think are killer butterflies, (no really) at Massive Dynamic and Peter, Walter and Olivia discover a bizarre cause of death. Olivia returns to and becomes addicted to the dunk tank; there, she can access John's memories to help solve the man's death. Peter's former girlfriend returns to warn him about people who want to "hurt him." Nina continues to be shady, and Broyles protects her. And this week, Walter is obsessed with coffee yogurt, and gets an erection. What a ride!
Walter goes home again, or at least to St. Claire's asylum, this week to help solve a kidnapping case. The boy who was taken, as well as several others in the Fringe files, was a prodigy, and the people responsible for the kidnapping him used red and green flashing lights to distract and hypnotize their victims. Walter doesn't remember the details, but he's heard of this phenomena before. He, along with Peter and Olivia, must find those behind the kidnapping before the boy is driven mad, or killed. In other news, Olivia eats a doughnut (she is human!), Walter calls Astrid "lady" and drops his food obsession this week...
Sandra Oh (Grey's Anatomy), Jennifer Morrison (House) and Matthew Fox (Lost)

Having Denny appear on one episode of Grey's Anatomy, because Izzie's memories were triggered by a case, is one thing. But to make him a ghostly fixture in her life and carry on some kind of romance from beyond the grave is beyond ridiculous. — Evie
MATT: I hear you. Getting it on with a ghost is so circa-1981 Barbara Hershey. Now, if s-e-x between living, breathing humans is what floats your boat — and lord knows the pickings are slim if you only watch Grey's, Ghost Whisperer and Supernatural these days — Drs. Owen Hunt and Cristina Yang might soon move beyond spontaneous necking and into full-on boinking. As Kevin McKidd himself tells me, "At the end of the day, this is Grey's Anatomy, so you can bet good money on it!" (Read my full Q&A with "McArmy" on Thursday. Great Scot, he gave up crazy Journeyman scoop!) As for Izzie and Denny, that "ghost story" isn't ending any time soon, seeing as Jeffrey Dean Morgan still has a few more appearances left (says EW's Ausiello).
I've missed Chase and Cameron on House, and was thrilled to see them in significant roles again. Are they more involved in future episodes? — Shane
MICKEY: Though the much-touted "hostage" episode airing Nov. 25 is kind of the Thirteen Show (Olivia Wilde is great in it), Chase and Cameron do ...
Fringe returned Tuesday with an all-new episode, and guess what? We still have a lot of burning questions about Olivia & Co. So we got on the phone with executive producer Jeff Pinkner, who gave us answers that were at times illuminating, frustrating, humorous and, of course, confusing. In the second of two parts (see the first part here), Pinkner holds forth on Peter Bishop's parentage, Walter's reliability and the real Massive Dynamic.
"The Pattern" conspiracy became more widespread this week as Agent Broyles revealed that it contains numerous funded cells that trade science instead of drugs or money. One of these , ZFT is suspected as the culprit behind infecting an agent with a large parasite that attaches to his heart. Olivia travels to Frankfurt to find answers, and meets up with a"friend" from her past, while Peter and Walter try to study the creature back at the lab. The problem is that the one person who may have answers is unattainable. Does the gang save the infected agent, and who is behind the group ZFT? Read the recap after the jump!
Fringe returns Tuesday with an all-new episode (9 pm/ET, Fox), and guess what? We still have a lot of burning questions about Olivia & Co. for executive producer Jeff Pinkner, so many that we had to split them into two stories. In this first part, he answers our questions about The Observer, Astrid Farnsworth and William Bell. The conversation is, of course, illuminating, frustrating, humorous and confusing.
