Fringe were filming indoor and outdoor scenes at Pacific Central, on Station Road in Vancouver yesterday.
Peter (Joshua Jackson), Olivia (Anna Torv), Walter (John Noble), Etta (Georgina Haig), Observers, Windmark and Loyalists were all at the location for a pretty intense day of shooting.
WARNING: Contains spoilers
Pacific Central was doubling for Newark Penn Station, an old Monorail Subway Station. The scenes we saw involved a lot of gunfire, smoke and running. At one point, Peter is running towards Etta and Olivia who are shooting at Loyalists and jumps over the hood of the Bishop’s car. All the cast were wearing gas masks, so I think this is a scene involving an “airborne toxin”. The one that hyper activates the protein that generates scar tissue. Loyalist troops and Observers were seen with sealed eyes, noses and mouths around the set, which was making it difficult for them to get around.
All the prop signs we saw were bilingual, with English and the Observers’ futuristic language. There were checkpoints with armoured cars there too. This is by far the biggest Fringe set I have been to, but the filming isn’t over yet. Today is day 7 of 7 of filming for the crew and they’re back at Pacific Central.
The Fringe scene they were filming yesterday happens before the scene we saw being filmed on September 4th if I am correct.
There’s a mammoth gallery of pictures below, the largest we’ve posted as one set on Vancity Filming to date! Leave a comment below. We would love to hear what you think of the show, and the pictures.
Season 5 of Fringe will air on Friday, September 28th at 9 p.m. on City TV.
