Fringe 1x20 "There's More Than One of Everything"

Synopsis: Nina Sharp recovers from her attack and reveals to the Fringe division that an energy cell was stolen from her mechanical arm by Jones, which he intends to use to open a doorway into a parallel reality to confront William Bell.
Meanwhile, Peter finds Walter at a beach house where they retrieve a device that can seal such an opening. Walter explains to Peter that he once lost something very dear to him and that he had to go and bring it back from another reality, the device being meant to prevent something from following him. Olivia, Peter and Walter intercept Jones opening another window, and Peter triggers Walter's device, killing Jones by sealing the doorway while only half of him is through it.

At the end of the episode, Walter goes alone to visit a graveyard in which he tearfully observes a gravestone marked "Peter Bishop 1978-1985", suggesting that Walter's son died and that Peter is actually from the other reality.
Nina Sharp later calls Olivia and implies to her that she can meet William Bell in Manhattan. Olivia is taken to the alternate reality while riding the elevator and is directed to an office.
A copy of the New York Post on the table has a headline stating that President Obama is set to move into the "new White House." She is greeted by William Bell (Leonard Nimoy, who also crosses parallel realities in the new "alternate reality" Star Trek movie).
The final shot pans out the window revealing that they are standing inside the South Tower of the World Trade Center.
