Fringe: Will Peter go bald?

Caution: Spoilers ahead

This final season of Fringe is heating up as Walter and the group try to defeat the army of Observers that have taken over the Earth. In the latest episode, Peter and Olivia are reeling over the loss of their daughter at the hands of the Observers.

Olivia is in shock and Peter is just angry. He wants revenge and sees an opportunity by destroying the corridor system between their world and the future world of the Observers. They steal a power source for the wormhole and Peter uses the captured Observer to help him put it together.

The plan succeeds, but the Observers are able to recover within seconds and the whole thing was a waste. Peter goes ballistic and rips the tech out of the Observer's head and implants it in his own. We don't know what this will do to him, but a preview of next weeks episode has him showing off some mad skills.

Will the tech make Peter go bald like the other Observers? I doubt it. I can't see Joshua Jackson shaving that head of his. Although, all along I thought Peter was destined to become an Observer and maybe this ends up not only making him one, but making him the First Observer.

It can't be a coincidence that this episode was called “An Origin Story.” Am I the only one seeing this? With only a handful of episodes left until the end of the series, I can't wait to see how they wrap everything up.

I have no doubt that the plan Walter developed will bring everyone back to that fateful day and Olivia and Peter will have the opportunity to raise Etta again, but we'll just have to see.
