'Fringe' producers talk disappearing/reappearing Peter (II of II)by jmaloni
Part II of II
Behind the Screens with Joshua Maloni
If "Fringe" fans thought Peter Bishop's disappearance was clever, producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman promise his reappearance will be just as imaginative.
BTS wondered, though, what was more challenging for the dynamic duo: erasing Peter or figuring out a way to bring him back?
"They both had their challenges," Pinkner says. "I think that figuring out the way to make him disappear was pretty simple. It's sort of like, 'Oh, now he's gone.' Coming up with the context of his return has been super fun and hopefully the payoff will be really rewarding. We think it is.
"And then, as always ... we're always far more interested in answering questions and then playing the consequences. And, hopefully, the consequences of his return will sort of give us an engine for a good part of the season."
Wyman promises fans that, as the episodes roll out, "you'll understand a little bit more about the reasons why and how we did what we did. So, it will become clear. The future of our storytelling sort of dictated how Peter was going to disappear and then come back. So, it'll put more in context for you as you see more."
