Due to the Black Donnellys premiere tomorrow, we got to see Heroes in Canada a day early. As much as I love the Oscars, there was no way I was missing this, and I am so glad I watched it. Completely focused on the Bennetts, with tons of explanation, plus awesome questions raised (Hiro's dad?????). HRG is one of the best, most varied characters on television, and I am so glad that I watch this show.

Spoilers for US people I suppose:


I couldn't agree more. This show is fantastic. I don't know what people are talking about when they say "Oh, this show has zero action and way too much building to nothing". I have to imagine that they're expecting some kind of 'X-Men: The Last Stand' fight every few weeks. I think the middle 20 minutes of the show gave them something to hold them over.

The flashbacks were done great, and I have to hope that the Haitian never touching his head before the "To Be Continued" means that he'll have a last minute change of heart. I was almost crying when the screen went black.

Of course, now the shitty part is we have to wait EIGHT days to see the next episode!

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

It's funny, but I was really struggling with this show. There were times I liked it, and times I got a little tired of it. In fairness, it was largely due to the teasers, which seemed to consistently imply "THIS EPISODE WILL EXPLAIN EVERYTHING" when the episode seemed to just confuse things even more.

I think this episode finally won me over.

The episode did a great job of explaining everything, by showing that everything is far more convoluted than expected.

Parkman was useful, portayed as a great sidekick.

Next week, Linderman.

This was easily the best episode of the series thus far. I liked the fake-out of Bennet setting up the Haitian only to turn and sacrifice himself. It will be interesting to see how much of Bennet's mind gets wiped, and how the Claire-Bennet relationship proceeds. (You know they have to meet again!)

The Hiro cameo was cute. I can't wait to find out what the big tie-in with the Deveaux building is. Most of the speculation I've read suggests that Sylar was Claude's prior student, but I'll look forward to that revelation when he gets to it. Parkman working for Primatech should actually work out.

That was Wireless in the lab with Bennet, right? Does that mean that she helped to set up the whole confrontation, as it were? (That would explain how she got the gun schematic last episode.) Could she also be working for the same people that are instructing the Haitian?

The Haitian had to mindwipe Bennet. If he didn't, Parkman, or someone with similar abilities, would be able to read Bennet's mind and find out what really happened to Claire. That's why Bennet said to "go deep, take anything that might lead them to her."

Great episode, but it begs the question ... aren't all those people (well, except Claire, I guess) going to die from radiation poisoning now. I mean, Radioactive Man's wife died from gradual exposure over a long period of time - so that sudden burst should make everyone walking tumors, right?

Yeah, it looked like the same actress, but (to be honest) I'm not sure.

Have to concur - what a great episode. Loved the tie in to the Invisible Man being HRG's original partner. I thought that Eric Roberts would turn out to be Lindermann but from the quick flash in next week's preview we know that not to be true. As I asked before, I wonder what Mr. Sulu's power will be ? (And as an aside, what game was Little Hiro playing ?) Claire & the Haitian make an unlikely pair to beb on the runn but NYC has to be where they are bound for. Yes, I think that was Wirelss in Parkman's "hospital" room - found it strange that she wasn't with them during the initial visit to the Bennet household. And Simone is alive ? Damn. She should have stayed dead. I can only hope that it is a dream sequence.

It just keeps getting more & more convoluted in a LOST Season 1 sort of way and that is a very good thing. Is it next Monday yet ?

To clear up some confusion, that was not Hana (aka "Wireless") in the lab at the end. It was Missy Peregrym (of "Stick It" fame), who apparently will be playing a new character. Hana did not appear in the episode.

And I don't think Sylar was Claude's student. He just gained his abilities six months ago and has pretty clearly been acting alone. I really hope that the "one of them" Claude was hiding isn't Simone. I want her to stay dead. The actress dragged down every scene she was in. Hopefully what we saw in the promo was a hallucination of some sort.

I had a question: Did the ending indicate that HRG intentionally let Claude go back when he was supposed to kill him? The way he shot him was odd. It was like the gun just went off in the middle of a sentence. Maybe he just wounded him, like he asked the Haitian to do to him.

Oh, and this was easily one of my top 5 favorite hours of TV ever.

Well, in all honesty yes, they should all die of massive exposure. But, while highly unlikely, it is possible to be exposed to radiation and not suffer poisoning. For example, the survivors in Hiroshima commonly came down with radiation poisoning, but not everyone did, and also, of those that did, not everyone died. It is also possible, but even less likely, that everyone except Claire and her dad were only exposed to non-lethal types of radiation. That stuff at the end was hot enough to give them radiation burns, so I'd say that's the lethal kind.

The best episode of Heroes ever followed up by.. the best episode of Heroes ever. At this rate I'm going to end up in a deep state of depression when the season ends.

I also wondered about all the radiation exposure. That whole neighborhood should be cancer-wary at this point. The ending with Claire going off with the Haitian and HRG taking a bullet and then getting mind wiped was way sadder than I ever thought Heroes could be. This show is truly amazing. I can't wait to see who Linderman is!

GREAT EPISODE

Loved the fact that they decided to focus on one story for an entire episode too.

I think that storyline is now the heart of the show. How does he get his daughter back - the daughter he didn't initially want but for which he was eventually willing to sacrifice almost everything. I'm almost getting chills thinking about it.

While the slow burn got a little tedious for me, this episode really made up for it. I'm not so thrilled with the Lost-esque ambiguity (sorry, but Lost bores me to tears), but they finally gave me something strong to keep me engaged.

Yeah, I know why they were doing it. What I'm hoping for was that the father would decide to stay with Claire and protect her instead of going back to his wife and son and working for the people who are going to be hunting her down.

Either that, or an outside force jumps in to stop the Haitian. I've been trying to think of who could be in the area at the time with connections to what's going on who's also not currently sedated, but I'm not coming up with anything. Maybe the gray haired fellow had them followed and someone from there jumps in guns-a-blazin to break up the memory wipe.
