It’s no secret that director J.J. Abrams is a lifelong Star Wars fan. Star Wars references have popped up on his show Lost, so it was only a matter of time before they appeared in his latest endeavor, Fringe.
In this week’s episode called “Safe,” F.B.I. agent Olivia Dunham reveals to the character Peter Bishop the nickname she had in boarding school.
Olivia: “I guess I’ve always just enjoyed being on my own. Even when I was in boarding school they used to call me Han.”
Peter: “As in Solo? That’s cute. At least you had a nickname.”
