'''Walter says that he had been an atheist until he stole Peter from the other side. The night after the crime Walter instinctually realized that he had violated God's trust and domain and believes the series of misfortunes that have taken place since have been God punishing him. Walter asks God for proof of his forgiveness in the form of a white tulip. When another scientist points out that tulips don't bloom at this time of year, Walter responds "But he's ''God''". He further explains that "If God can forgive me maybe it's in the realm of possibilities that my son can forgive me too"''' ("[[fringe:White Tulip|White Tulip]]")

The scientist with whom Walter is speaking is [[fringe:Alistair Peck|Alistair Peck]]. He had been studying time travel in order to try to prevent the death of his fiance [[fringe:Arlette Turling|Arlette Turling]] in a car collision. However Alistair's attempts at time travel required a large amount of energy, and Walter tries to convince him to avoid risking possibly killing hundreds of people in the area where he would appear upon his arrival back in time. Walter continues to try to discourage Alistair from making the attempt by explaining his own case of coming to believe in a higher power, hoping for a sign of forgiveness in the form of a white tulip for his actions in stealing Peter from the parallel universe. With God's forgiveness, Walter believes it will be possible for Peter to forgive him once he learns the truth of who he is.

Alistair considers this, but with Walter's time up, the armed forces start to move in. Alistair jumps back in time again by only a few hours to complete the modified power calculations based on Walter's comments, and to prepare a pre-addressed letter he brings with him. As his location is discovered and armed forces barge in, Alistair re-engages his time machine. Alistair's modifications have worked, as he finds himself in the field, minutes before his fiance's death. Alistair is able to make it to his fiance in time, reuniting just long enough to say "I love you" before they are both killed by the collision.
