I do. I think he was terribly used in seasons 4 and 5. They assassinated him as a character. There was a certain mystery around Bell, he was Walter's partner, another genius, and they sacrificed his character for that horrible S4 end of the season SL. How they misused and sacrificed Bell's character can only be compared to what they did to Jones. All victims of season four of Fringe

^ I agree with everything. I understand they wanted a "different version of Bell" in S4 but they could have given us context to make sense of it. They just brought him on as the bad guy for S4 and then kind of continued that with the S5 story but didn't provide an adequate explanation. Poor Bell.

And since they convinced Nimoy to come back, it's a shame they used him like that. I would have liked to know why Nimoy crossed over in the first place, why he decided to stay there, something that could be connected, and made sense, to S4 SL.

^^Nimoy was a handsome young man.

^I would have liked to see Bell again but with a purpose. Not randomly.

I guess Nimoy came back b/c he liked the story Pinkman presented him with. He got to play a darker Bell so that was probably interesting to him. I just think they needed more explanation for his motivations. He had all this dialogue with Walter but none of it really told us WHY he did the things he did.

I'm okay with a darker Bell because he was the one who always seemed to be less concerned about crossing the lines, but like you said, we had no light about his motivations and what he received in exchange.

Now that I think about it what was Bell trying to accomplish since S1? He was in the AU creating weapons for Fringe Division and somehow that was going to stop a war from happening? Or was it that he was in the AU stealing that tech so MD could make it?

^ Good questions, we never really knew. We didn't even know why he stayed in the AU

^He lived in the AU for many years right? How did he cross over in the first place? What explanation did he give Olivia about how he pulled her into the AU at the end of S1?

I don't know.

I don't know, but he said this to Olivia:

Quote:
WILLIAM BELL: You're still a little disoriented from the time slips, aren't you? Happened to me when I first came here. You're -- you're out of sync with this side. You're lucky. Most people who cross dimensions, without your natural talent, are simply torn apart.
He only said he was sorry for the way he did it:
Quote:
WILLIAM BELL: You'll have to forgive me. The method by which I brought you over here was crude, and I'm sorry for that, but there were people who were trying to prevent our meeting.
In the end we really don't know much about Bell and his motivations.
