They show them teleporting themselves like 50 feet behind the group who's running away, and it's such a sad failure of logic that it completely turns me off to the show. If the Observers truly had the powers that they've show so far in the series, then there would be no way they could be stopped by those without such abilities.
This show had so much potential, but it's just spinning out of control now with the dumb future timeline BS.
What even dumber than that is that Peter can stick a couple of diodes in his neck and become an Observer, albeit, a Super Observer.
The whole reason for the series and hole or bridge between the two universes, IIRC, is because the Observer, September, wanted to witness a history changing event.
If Observers have no emotion, why would he care about something so mundane?
It's just another J.J. Abrams produced mess.
