Fringe: Olivia Becomes Bolivia

In the season premiere of Fringe, Olivia Dunham undergoes an experimental treatment intended to replace her memories with Bolivia's.

I've read somewhere that this woman with Olivia was in Deep Throat (the porn movie?)

The treatment seems to be not working and she manages to escape. She takes Henry, a taxi driver, hostage and forces him to drive her to the theater where her group returned to the prime universe but she arrives just as the area is being quarantined with amber. She then goes to Massive Dynamic only to find out that the building doesn't exist.

Andre Royo as Henry

No Massive Dynamic in the alternate universe

Bolivia's partner was made to believe she had a mental breakdown of some sort

Olivia becomes sharpshooter Bolivia.
Alternate Brandon says it's the adrenaline fueled by her escape
that triggered the drugs to take effect and made Olivia forget who she was.

She then asks Henry to take her to what she believes is a safehouse, which turns out to be the house of Bolivia's mother. At this point, Olivia's memories seem to have gone down the drain and is replaced with Bolivia's. She is then taken back to the Fringe Division facility. Henry the taxi driver sees Olivia being taken and felt suspicious. At least, that's what I think of Henry's reaction. I'm certain he's gonna be around for a while. He's most probably the one who'll help Olivia come to her senses and convince her that she's not who she thinks she is, unless Olivia's just pretending to be Bolivia so she can infiltrate the facility under the Statue of Liberty and destroy Walternate's evil plan.

What do you think, Fringe nation?
