Tread Perilously jumps to another reality with the abandoned Fringe episode known as “Unearthed.”
When Lisa, a recently deceased young woman, suddenly comes back to life on the organ harvesting table and blurts out nuclear codes, Olivia Dunham and the Fringe Division arrive on the scene. When Lisa starts speaking Russian, the group investigates a missing Naval officer with access to the launch codes. Meanwhile, Walter Bishop begins to suspect the girl somehow caught the Navy man’s soul as he lay dying. This doesn’t stop her from noticing how handsome Joshua Jackson is. Unfortunately, the Navy man figures out a way to possess Lisa and plans his revenge.
