Season 3 of “Fringe” has featured many things: ups, downs, twists, turns, frustrations, and revelations. What it’s managed to avoid up until this point is a “placeholder.” But unfortunately, that’s what “Os” was, an episode that set the groundwork for events to come but featured very little in the way of major narrative progression. Maybe if the episode had been called “Ring My Bell,” we’d have a disco-infused title that got to the heart of what this episode was truly building towards.
