Leonard Nimoy has come out of retirement one more time to reprise his role as William Bell on JJ Abrams sci-fi show Fringe. FOX has released a new promo for this Friday’s episode which teases the return of Nimoy. Watch it and another preview below.
Leonard Nimoy is back "in an unexpected way" on Fringe
Here is Fox’s "A Tease Within A Tease" about the Fringe episode "Lysergic Acid Diethylamide"
SPOILERS: On the current season of Fringe it has been established that William Bell (played by Leonard Nimoy) has died but has used a "soul magnet" to inhabit the mind of Oliva Dunham (Anna Torv). This has become a problem which will be dealt with this Friday in the episode "Lysergic Acid Diethylamide." Here is another new preview from FOX:
"Lysergic Acid Diethylamide" airs Friday April 15th.
Nimoy and LSD?
Could the episode title be an homage to a famous scene with Leonard Nimoy. Of course "Lysergic Acid Diethylamide" is better known as the hallucinogen LSD, something which Fringe’s mad scientist Walter Bishop probably uses on a regular basis. But, Leonard Nimoy has had another brush with a reference to LSD. In Star Trek IV Admiral Kirk tried to explain away Spock’s odd behavior (from a 1980s perspective) by telling Dr. Gillian Taylor he had used "a little too much LDS" in the 60s.
