LEONARD NIMOY’S RETURN TO FRINGE VERY CLEVER BUT IS IT THE END?

LAST NIGHT’S FRINGE EPISODE CONCLUDED THE RETURN OF WILLIAM BELL STORY ARC WITH QUITE A BIZARRE TWIST. FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF EPISODES, THE SPIRIT OF WILLIAM BELL HAS BEEN INHABITING OLIVIA’S BODY AND COULDN’T LEAVE TO RETURN HER HOME. WITH NIMOY’S RETIREMENT FROM ACTING, IT WAS A CLEVER MOVE AND FAN SPECULATION ABOUT HIS PHYSICAL RETURN WAS RIFE. BUT IN LAST NIGHT’S EPISODE, WALTER AND PETER  ENTERED OLIVIA’S MIND AND FOUND WILLIAM IN THE TWIN TOWERS BUT AS A CARTOON. THE EPISODE WAS QUITE PHYSICAL AS THEY TOOK AN INVASION OF THE BODYSNATCHERS VIEW WITH WHOLE STREETS TURNING AGAINST OUR HEROES WHICH WAS PERFECT FOR LEONARD AS HE COULD RECORD HIS LINES IN A STUDIO. ALTHOUGH IT WOULD HAVE BEEN WONDERFUL TO SEE LEONARD ONE LAST TIME IN THE FLESH, THIS WAS A MORE THAN SATISFACTORY END TO THE BELL STORY. OR IS IT? BELL’S SPIRIT WAS OUT THERE ONCE AND FOR ALL WE KNOW, STILL IS.
