The war between "over here" and "over there" has been steadily brewing on Fringe. Lance Reddick sat down with TVGuide.com to discuss what will happen when the two universes collide. He also dishes on the good vs. evil battle, a certain background character finally stepping into the limelight and whether or not he's returning to Lost ...
TVGuide.com: Every case the Fringe division has taken on this season seems to have roots in Walter's past.
Lance Reddick: I have a feeling that it has something to do with tying Walter [John Noble] into the upcoming conflict with the other dimension.
TVGuide.com: What are we going to see when this war comes to a head?
Reddick: The truth is, I don't really know what it's going to look like. I can say that we're going to see more of the Observer and find out more about him or them. The episode with Charlie was a great precursor to what's going to come.
TVGuide.com: Does Peter (Joshua Jackson) being kidnapped in this week's episode have anything to do with the fact that he's from over there?
Reddick: No, in this instance it's just a matter of Peter being a victim of circumstance. In the course of the investigation he gets taken hostage.
TVGuide.com: Will they be able to save him?
Reddick: Let me put it this way: Josh is working tomorrow.
TVGuide.com: Are you working tomorrow, because we do see in the promos that Broyles has a run in with a gun in the episode?
Reddick: As a matter of fact, yes, I am working. I guess in the promos they show the scene where it looks like Peter is going to shoot me and it goes to commercial anyway. When we come back from commercial ... you'll find out what happened [Laughs].
TVGuide.com: Anymore making out with Nina Sharp (Blair Brown)?
Reddick: Not so far, but it's possible. That kiss had more to do with a past romantic involvement, I don't think it's current. When you're in a high-stress situation, dynamics between people can change.
TVGuide.com: When do we see William Bell (Leonard Nimoy) again?
Reddick: I would imagine that as we get closer and closer to the conflict and once we really get into it, he will be an integral part of that story line.
TVGuide.com: How do you figure out who is good and who is evil in regards to the dual universes?
Reddick: That's a good question, even with Walter. When you look at some of the things we know he's done in the past. I feel like one of the things this show deals with is looking at good and evil existentially, like whose point of view. We're going to be looking at that when the conflict comes. There's an episode we're about to start shooting that deals with that.
TVGuide.com: There was a Broyles-centric episode. Will there be an Astrid-centric episode.
Reddick: I would like to see that and I know that a few of us have actually asked. Jasika Nicole is really talented. I'll have a scene with her and she'll have one word or two lines to say. She's so present and so beautiful. We've put on a campaign to have more screen time and she has been [having some]. Walter is being more in the field and she's coming with him.
TVGuide.com: This is the final season of Lost. Have they talked to you about returning?
Reddick: They have not talked to me. I don't have high hopes. It seems like they're just so far into the season, but then again, I've been called last-minute before.
