The way asks fade off your screen is fucking WELL COOL.
..yeah, I’m well popular here with my first ever ask.
Its fine! I’m glad I helped, that’s what it was there for. :’}
I didn’t understand it much myself so I had to sift through about a million videos/blogs/forums to find out exactly wtf happened! Thought I’d post it out in real human-like words. aha. :’} xxx
Shit man. Looks like I’ve been rumbled…
Okay, so here it goes. Feel free to reply if you’re betwazzled, I’ll try and make this as clear as I can. I haven’t read any wiki articals, so this might not be right as far as the S4 plot goes, but its what I assume so far, and please, if you’re on S4, NO SPOILERS.
Peter, with Olivia’s help, enters the prime version of the machine, and experiences a vision of the future where the parallel universe has been destroyed and the same threatens the prime one. He opts instead to merge the two machine rooms, creating a bridge where inhabitants of both universes can solve their dilemma, before disappearing and being forgotten by both Walters and Olivias.
1. The Machines and the Wormhole
Walter, as always, has been a crazy little one. The machines as we know are intertwined between the two universes. Bad things happened previously between the two universes causing Walter to use the wormhole to travel back in time, and hide the parts of the machine in a bid for them not to be found. This caused a paradox, a never ending loop in time in which Walter was actually “The First People”. (After this revilation I have a feeling that we have more to find out about the Weis’s and what their connection with all this is.)
2. What exactly happened at the end?
Firstly, Peter took Walter and Olivia through the machine to the other side. Explaining to Walter, Walternate, Olivia and Fauxlivia about the machine and what would happen if the universe was destroyed. He then said that he’d punched a hole in the universes in the exact same spot (Liberty Island) creating a sort of portal or bridge between the two.
3. Yes, I understood that bit, but why did Peter vanish?
Okay, now this is the confusing part so I hope you’ll bare with me here…
When Peter went into the machine, he saw 15 years into the future. People were dying and the Universe was at war with Walternate once again for wiping out his side.
When Peter decided to stop this and change the course of history, he changed the future, causing the future he witnessed to not exist.
Peter witnessed an event that does not exist (the future he prevented). Therefore, he cannot exist because his existence depends on that future existing. You can’t have a memory of something that never happened. The universe corrected this paradox by eliminating Peter.
Who knows? He always has too many riddles…
5. So, will Peter return?
Walter expressed in White Tulip the idea that the universe retains traces of all our actions, that the past cannot simply be ‘erased;’ all actions matter.
When Olivia’s memories were wiped by Brandonate, she still couldn’t fully forget Peter, and I assume she won’t now either. Olivia can manipulate reality with her mind. There is very little she can’t do, if anything at all. It’s all up to emotion, connection, and memory now.
Here’s a video of Wyman and Pinker explaining the final episode. Its not too informative, but it may help.

1. Nice play on words there with your name my brother. ;}
2. That’s probably my first like, so thankyou.
3. Your bio means you’re my new favorite person, congratulations!
You Sir, are a moron.
But thankyou none of the less, in return I have followed you, hopefully you will be of interest to this shitheap. :)
Its not a blog site. Its just reposts of shitty, badly composed photographs of half a girls chin or some random flowery shit. Occasionally you get a slightly funny image but even then its lost in a mass of “omglolz” and pointless .gif images that make you want to kill yourself.
Still, it kills some time I guess. -.-
