That basic history didn't change when Peter Bishop altered the timeline by creating a bridge between universes, but a lot else did. When young Olivia Dunham's mother died, Nina raised her and her sister. Although Nina remained an ally of Fringe Division, her warm relationship with Walter changed to one of animosity.
Nina found herself uncharacteristically helpless when her doppelganger teamed up with David Robert Jones and replaced her, secretly giving Olivia the Cortexiphan injections that Jones hoped would allow him to use Olivia to destroy both universes. When Walter discovered that Bell was not only still alive — and hadn't died in a car accident, as Nina believed — but also masterminding this scheme, Nina overcame her disbelief to help fight back.
Nina remains a friend to Phillip Broyles and seems to have a future with Fringe Division, a future where the team will need all the help they can get.
