Player Affinity writes: "The last time the aftermath of a cliffhanger rested on Peter's shoulders was in "Entrada" where he had to confront Fauxlivia, and where I think he was poorly used. In "Novation," however, we couldn't get enough of him. Yes, there were other things happening, things which might turn out to be at the heart of whatever threat the story has in store for us this season. There was even the ever beguiling Olivia Dunham around, but all that mattered was Peter. In just one episode, Fringe has managed to turn the lead that, to me at least, always seemed an accessory into a character I now want to see as often as possible."
