The actor - who plays the eccentric Walter Bishop - also hinted at "resolution" and "redemption" for his own character in the show's last episodes.
"Walter is the man who started this, so there has to be resolution," he suggested. "There has to be redemption. I would love to see the Peter (Joshua Jackson) [and] Walter relationship come back to where it was.
"We also have to see the final maturing of the relationship between Peter and Olivia, because it has been so difficult for them and we want them so much to be with each other."Fringe
