Season Two contains worlds (and alternative worlds) of excitement complete with shape-shifters, cryonic heads, belly-dwelling beasts, and people who turn to ashes before our eyes. But the overarching narrative takes three clandestine FBI agents, Olivia Dunham, Peter Bishop, and Walter Bishop, through a mind-bending investigation of a parallel reality that threatens to destroy ours.
Three unlikely colleagues -- a beautiful young FBI agent, a brilliant scientist who's spent the last 17 years in a mental institution, and the scientist's sardonic son -- investigate a series of bizarre deaths and disasters known as 'the pattern.' Someone is using our world as an experimental lab. And all clues lead to Massive Dynamic, a shadowy global corporation that may be more powerful than any nation.
The Fringe team escapes from the parallel universe, except for Olivia, trapped in the other world and replaced in ours by her double, who turns Peter and Olivia's tentative relationship into a love affair.
Nariko's clan has long protected the 'Heavenly Sword,' a god's blade of immense power that drains its wielder of their life force. A power-hungry ruler known as the evil King Bohan seeks to obtain the sword to gain its devastating power. As the impending apocalypse nears, it remains to be seen how long Nariko can resist the sword's deadly curse.

The extraordinary experiences of three men and their fellow Marines take them from the first clash with the Japanese in the haunted jungles of Guadalcanal, through the impenetrable rain forests of Cape Gloucester, across the blasted coral strongholds of Peleliu, up the black sand terraces of Iwo Jima, through the killing fields of Okinawa, to the triumphant, yet uneasy, return home after V-J Day.
