In New York, after the lecture of the Massive Dynamic executive Mark Young, he is attacked by a swarm of butterflies with razor wings and he jumps out of the glass window, falling and dying on a car parked on the street. Agent Olivia Dunham is assigned to investigate the crime scene with her team and Dr. Walter Bishop examines the lacerations on the body. Olivia sees John Scott in the crowd watching her. Then she receives an e-mail from John and finds a hidden laboratory with frogs. In Harvard, Dr. Bishop finds a powerful hallucinogen in the frogs and in Mark's blood and concludes that the lacerations were produced his brain. Olivia discloses to Dr. Bishop her visions of John and he tells that she has recollections of John in her brain. She insists to be submitted again to the experiment to visit her memories of John. Will she discover anything new about her case?

"The Dreamscape" is another great episode of "Fringe", increasing the mystery about the Massive Dynamic. The greatest flaw is Olivia leaving the witness in the hospital without any special protection. My vote is seven.
