Signage in Chinatown in 'Snakehead' says "Ginseng Improves Memory!", foreshadowing the plot of 'Grey Matters' where pieces of Walter's brain are recovered to help restore his memories.
Colorful butterfly drawings hung up at Dunwich Mental Hospital in 'Grey Matters' foreshadow Walter's discovery of Edina's permutation secret in 'Johari Window' when he captured a butterfly for Astrid that later seemed to change its appearance.
FRINGE DIVISION CASE FILE #210-121009
FRINGE EVENT: Miraculous mental disorder recoveries
CLASSIFIED CASE CONNECTION(S): Shapeshifters
AGENTS ASSIGNED: Dunham
SUPERVISING AGENT: Broyles
FILE ARCHIVED BY: Jenny Chan
WITNESSES/CONTACTS: Nurse Holbrook, Dr. West, Thomas Jerome Newton (suspect)
LOCATION: Hennington Mental Health Institute, Boston, MA; 2828 Green Street, Boston, MA
VICTIM(S): Joseph Slater, Deborah Crampton, Mr. and Mrs. Rabel
CASE REPORT SUMMARY:Dr. Bishop tracked stealth surgeries on three separate patients who suffered from acute disorders that were miraculously cured. Joseph Slater was diagnosed with acute paranoid schizophrenia, suffering from delusions, false memories, and severe emotional swings. Within an hour after finding his brain exposed from surgery, Slater related his mind was "suddenly free." Deborah Crampton suffered from a severe form of obsessive-compulsive disorder called arithmomania, and post-rogue-surgery, was also improved. Stuart Gordon was referred to a mental hospital with a minor psychiatric complaint, which then developed into full-blown schizophrenia. He then miraculously recovered. Their connection was treatment by a Dr. Simon Paris (an alias of Dr. Bell). Each unknowingly had a piece of Dr. Bishop's brain implanted in his or her head for safekeeping, which caused their afflictions. As soon as the foreign tissue was removed, they healed.
