* CoolOldLady: Eva Staller. From what little we saw of her, she was nice and cool for someone who survived the holocaust. And she was about to bust the German scientist right before she choked to death (In RealLife, one woman who did recognize UsefulNotes/JosefMengele in a crowd after WWII fainted, so it's a testament to how cool''this'' old lady is).

--> Eric Franko: I'm not a Nazi. I'm an artist. It's about the banality of evil, uh, like the Nuremberg trials showing history's tyrants as these regular schmucks. (...) Sadly, the, uh, contemporary art scene has yet to, um -- fully recognize my particular contributions.

A German scientist, Alfred Hoffman, develops a virus capable of only targeting and killing people with specific genetic traits. When the Fringe team investigates, Walter realises that the killer is using scientific concepts and formulas developed by his own father, Dr. Robert Bischoff, a German scientist who passed information to the Allies during WWII before immigrating to America. The Fringe team find the scientist's lab just as he's left to plant virus bombs at a conference for world tolerance: they manage to find the bombs but can't locate the scientist. Walter, driven to [[TranquilFury tranquil fury]] by the scientist's use of his father's theories, creates a new strain on the virus that only targets the scientist himself and releases it at the conference, killing him. As he dies, the scientist points to Walter and calls him a traitor. At the end of the episode, one of Walter's old photos of his father reveals that the scientist was a Nazi who has somehow lived to be over 100 years old without ageing.

A German scientist, Alfred Hoffman, develops a virus capable of only targeting and killing 15 people with specific genetic traits. suffocate at a Jewish wedding, appearing to have asphyxiated from the inside out. When the Fringe team investigates, arrives, Olivia identifies all the victims as being from the groom's side, whose grandmother was a Holocaust survivor - and Walter realises surmises that they were all killed via their shared genetic traits. Later, a similar mass death occurs at a coffee shop, in which Walter recognizes the victims all had brown eyes, another common genetic trait. From fingerprints found at the scene, they discover the culprit is Alfred Hoffman, a Nazi scientist apparently somehow over 100 years old. Walter realizes that the killer is using scientific concepts and formulas developed by man likely worked with his own father, Dr. Robert Bischoff, a Bishoff (a German scientist who passed information defected to the Allies during WWII before immigrating US in 1943 and anglicised his name), to America. The Fringe team find creating a chemical agent that, once heated as a gas, could be used to target any specific trait using DNA from the scientist's lab just as he's left to plant virus bombs at a conference for world tolerance: they manage to find target subject - especially those not of the bombs but can't locate the scientist. Walter, driven to [[TranquilFury tranquil fury]] by the scientist's use of master race. Though Walter originally had his father's theories, creates a new strain files on the virus subject, Peter had sold them ten years earlier; Peter tries to recover the files but finds some have been used by an artist to create sensationalism art, causing Walter to become distraught.

They trace Hoffman to his home, finding his equipment used to create the chemical agent downstairs but no sign of Hoffman. Walter nearly suffocates from an agent left by Hoffman, but Olivia and Peter are able to save him in time. As the FBI search the premises, they find evidence
that only targets the scientist himself and releases it at the conference, killing him. As he dies, the scientist points to a convention being held to promote world equality. Olivia and Peter depart to try to find Hoffman, while Walter remains behind, examining Hoffman's equipment.

At the convention, Hoffman has replaced the heating elements for the chafing-dishes with his own. Olivia and Peter struggle with locating Hoffman before
Walter and calls him Astrid arrive. Walter uses a traitor. At fogger to distribute his own chemical agent, this time specific to Hoffman, and soon the end of man is found dying. As the episode, one team regroups, Walter fully admits to killing Hoffman, a crime in itself, but Broyles decides to let it go. Later, Peter has been able to recover the rest of Walter's his grandfather's work and returns it to Walter; Walter then goes through the files, finding an old photos photo of his father reveals that the scientist was a Nazi who has somehow lived to be over 100 years old without ageing.

Needless to say, it's satisfying when Walter kills him with his own weapon.

** Creating the seahorse signature is quite implausible with today's technology, and was certainly impossible in 1943.

** Creating the seahorse signature is quite implausible with today's technology, and was certainly impossible in 1943. 1943.
*** The idea is that the German scientist spent the last 70 years or so developing the toxin, and made it as his twisted fuck you to Walter's dad. Even without that, considering Massive Dynamic, Walter and ZFT, making a chemical weapon with a carbon structure that looks like a seahorse is the least improbable thing.
