Previously, on Heroes...

* "There's a moment in every war where everything changes."
* "You need help. Let me help you." -Elle
* "Why is it always me?" -Claire
* "Hi Claire Bear." -Mr. Bennet
* The Haitian is hunting Baron Samedi.
* Mohinder's getting worse.
* And Daphne is freaking out.
* Matt can fix Hiro! Makes sense enough, I wager.
* Hiding out in Canfield's house? Isn't there, like, structural problems?
* "What's your game, Nemesis?" -Ando, being awesome
* Elle? Seriously? What's wrong with you?
* "I hate heroes." -Sylar
* "I'm changing. I can feel it. And I can't control it." -Mohinder
* Fight training with Mr. Bennet.
* "My absence does not give you license to act like a brat." Oh, SNAP.
* Heh, baseball.
* Sending Tracy to Paris Island?
* OK, why didn't they finish reading the 9th Wonder issue earlier?
* Eclipse!
* And, Mohinder's fine. Naked and slimy, but fine.
* "Why are you turning your head sideways?" Hee.
* "It's happening again." -Daphne
* "Why would I want your respect? You're a puppet!" -Peter
* Holy crap! Mr. Bennet is all out of bubble gum.
* "Can you triumph without powers?"
* "The corn will keep on coming!"
* "We've reach the end of the comic book." -Ando
* Mohinder has to get the powers back. Because he did such a good job before.
* SETH GREEN. Plenty of Red Hulks for everyone, hee.
* Samedi is the Haitian's brother. And invulnerable! Eep.
* "If you're not going to do this for the right reasons, at least do it for the selfish ones." -Peter, in a rare moment of brilliance
* "He told me to be myself." -Samedi
* Aw, Matt, you big lug.
* That's Daphne's secret? Interesting. So wht is she indebted to Arthur? Was she created as opposed to being born a speedster?
* "I used to understand everything, but... nothing makes sense." -Gabriel

Elle: We can't take what we want anymore.
Gabriel: Says who?

* Mr. Bennet, sniper! Excellent. And makes complete sense.

Seriously dark episode. And I mean the lighting. I thought my TV was broken.

So, uh, who is writing 9th Wonder now? Or was that an old issue? Or a manga version or the original American version? And if it was, why hasn't Hiro or Ando just read the whole series? I'm all for creative storytelling, but YOU KNOW THE COMIC BOOK TELLS THE FUTURE.

It occurs to me that Mr. Bennet is like Batman now. He's spent years fighting against people with superpowers, and now he's uber-dangerous.

And I totally don't get where they are going with Elle anymore. She changes week to week.

I've got four theories on the comic book:

A) Isaac's not dead
B) Time-traveling Hiro
C) Time-traveling Peter
D) Time-traveling future Peter, being more subtle re: Butterfly effect

Re: Mr. Bennet

On the one hand, he's more awesome than Batman, because he doesn't dawn a cape and tights and hide his identity so much.

On the other, none of the superhumans he fights on a regular basis really compare to the DC universe (Except for maybe now Mr. Patrelli and the other power-conglomerators).

Re: Elle

What I like about this story arc is that they've hit on one major theme of villainy in epic storytelling: redemption. They are on track to redeem Sylar; to some extent, they've redeemed Ms. Patrelli. They're redeeming Elle too, now. And of course, they've just redeemed Daphne.

They're definitely blurring the lines on who's a good guy and who's a bad guy this season, which I like even if it's not popular.

The only real issue I have is the seeming whiplash of where they're going with certain characters. I can get that Sylar can have strong familial feelings and still be a villain, for lack of a better word. However, to have Elle crying about making Sylar a monster one moment and then saying with a smirk that they can take anything they want just has me confused.

That being said, I'm enjoying all of the arcs right now. I suspect that Daphne's 'previous life' mentioned was where she was going in life after getting super speed.

I've been wondering about who's writing Ninth Wonders, but figure that if it's important, it will come out.

The Japanese edition of Ninth Wonders was just that, a Japanese edition of an American Comic. Manga isn't published in individual issues like that. As for it being an old issue, if it were that far out of date, then the continuing issue wouldn't be coming out on Wednesday.

If the new issue is coming out, then the only way to read the whole comic is to go to the future and get it only who's to say that the comic you find in the future is the right version of the future? Or that the timeline won't just change. Also, no time traveling powers thanks to yon eclipse. As for why they didn't do it sooner, I think it's well established that Hiro and Ando don't always take the smartest or most creative paths. ;-p

Meh. I may or may not have other thoughts, but I need to be going.

I was under the impression that against all odds, in spite of being both a comic book artist AND a heroin addict, Isaac had already mailed in his comics many months ahead of schedule. They did show him putting one issue into an envelope, as he happily proclaimed that he knew how Sylar would be defeated. . . Seeing as how we saw that Sylar was not defeated shortly thereafter, he was either looking further ahead or just wrong. It probably just hasn't occurred to anyone (namely Hiro) that they might be benefited by going to the comic company headquarters and stealing them out of someone's desk before publication. They know Isaac is dead.

"Why would I want your respect? You're a puppet!" -Peter

Awesome line. Hiro's corn-will-keep-coming was awesome alliteration, too.

That's Daphne's secret?  Interesting.  So why is she indebted to Arthur?  Was she created as opposed to being born a speedster?

I'd wager she was crippled until her powers manifested, and she knows Arthur can take them away forever.
