Walter is introduced in Season One as a brilliant scientist who has had a breakdown and become deeply eccentric, owing to secrets having to do with his son Peter (Joshua Jackson) and FBI agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv). We learn that Peter is actually from an alternate universe, taken by Walter to save his life after Walter’s son Peter died in […]Read On »
