^I have no objection to character-driven storytelling. I just think it's awkward to make the connection between the danger plot and the character plot so blatant and literal. If it were something like, say, Peter's loyalties being divided between universes and possibly affecting his allegiances and choices in a way that could indirectly tip the balance in the struggle for survival, that would be valid. That would be an intelligent, thoughtful way of making the danger plot a metaphor or amplification of the character plot. But reducing both the danger plot and the character plot to a single McGuffin machine which will literally amplify Peter's rejection of one Olivia to the destruction of her entire universe -- that's just oversimplifying the whole thing to a ridiculous degree.
It's all about love and blowing things up.
DWF, probably only on ExIsle could that statement make sense and be appreciated. Nice nod to RHW.
(I added the bolding in DWF's quote)

Unanswered questions aren't nearly as dangerous as unquestioned answers.
