Previously, on Heroes...



* Previously: "...a humble bike messenger..."
* "I don't understand a word you're saying." -Hiro
* Hiro's mom! Dying! Catalyst!
* "Nothing will ever be the same." -Kaito
* Ah, she's a healer, too.
* Man, Claire and Hiro are quite the comedy duo.
* "I'm not helping you any more, Arthur. I'm not helping anyone." -Sylar
* New list! And, Elle's gone. (M.: where'd he get the lighter fluid?)
* Angela's sending them to kill Arthur.
* "I'm taking over Pinehearst." -Nathan
* "Brief him on what we've done." -Arthur
* "We'd like to call it 'intelligent design'..." -Tracy
* Claire holding herself as a baby. And changing herself. So weird.
* Sue Landers, the lie detector.
* "I have to find out the truth about something." -Sylar
* "Cake?"
* Holy crap, it's Kyle from The 4400! And man, he's a terrible candidate for superpowers.
* "I like teleporting better. Less windy." -Ando
* "I want to give the light to Hiro." -Ishi
* Oh, Hiro.
* "No questions, that was the arrangement." -Mr. Bennet
* Dude, Mr. Bennet is smart enough to piece this one together.
* "Claire Bear, huh?"
* Hiro made waffles! "My name is Hiro Nakamra. I travel through time and space."
* This stuff between him and his mom is killing me. I mean, I know theme of the episode, with Claire and Peter too, but man, all about the Hiro.
* "I never thought I'd get to see you like this." -Ishi
* "I remember how much I miss you." -Hiro
* "I became a master of space and time. And I have saved the world... twice."
* And he lied about his dad to her AUGH
* "Give me the catalyst, Mother."
* "I am so proud of you, Hiro."
* The catalyst is the Quickening!
* OK, who is doing these drawings?
* "The world would be a lot simpler without powers." -Peter, who is completely wrong
* "It does kind of tingle." -Sylar
* Sketches!




* ARTHUR. AND HE STOLE THE CATALYST. "You're a dead man."
* "Tell Angela it's over. I won."
* Find another time traveler! Uh, how? "Maybe it can me me?" Oh, Ando. You're too precious for words.
* And, your villains: Arthur, Mohinder, Tracy, Nathan. "Ready to change the world?"
* Fifty doses! OK, just one. Scott, naturally.
* Arthur's too strong for the Haitian!
* OH HAI SYLAR YAY
* "You're not a killer, Peter. I am."
* So, uh, is the catalyst gone?
* Scott's super strong! "I feel good."

OK, I know I am an optimist about the show, but that was a damn fine episode, and I like how they are heading into the break.

In the elevator scene, I wanted the other guy to look at Sylar and say, "You've got red on you."

Umm... I don't think Hiro actually lied about his dad. I seem to recall that he did earn his father's respect before he died.

At the very least, he's embellishing.
MsCongeniality: Comicmscongeniality on December 11th, 2008 01:33 pm (UTC)
I don't think so. If the two of them hadn't reached that point, Kaito never would have trained Hiro--let alone left his company (or the formula he so spectacularly botched thanks to the backwards character development) to him. Kaito's a pretty straightlaced Japanese guy; his displeasure is going to be loud and frequent, his approval is going to be quiet and take the form of pretty much any serious conversation with his son at all.

Alright, fair enough, good points.

I hope that Hiro's sister is (still) actually running the company, or it must be going down the tubes by now.

You think Obi-Wan lied to Luke, don't you?
PMMJ: Space Jerkcheetahmaster on December 11th, 2008 02:22 pm (UTC)
He didn't mention that Vader made C3P0, did he? Nor did he mention not to kiss Leia.
Lizammitnox on December 11th, 2008 05:03 pm (UTC)
Maybe he thought that a little incest wasn't as bad as Vader finding out from Luke's mind that Leia was his daughter?
Lizammitnox on December 11th, 2008 05:04 pm (UTC)
Also, if midichlorians are a recessive trait, then maybe Luke and Leia's children would be even more powerful Jedi! With, you know, harelips or whatever.

You're awesome.

I've been generally down on the show this season so far, but I'll definitely agree with you on this episode, it was one of the better ones they've done.

I finally caught up last night.

I didn't watch it for weeks because the first episode pissed me off so royally. BUT while there are some things that just make me mad, there have been other things that make me scream with joy. It is definitely not as kick ass as it was before, but still good.

I had the same thought about the lighter fluid.

I have a question...I REALLY like Sylar as a good guy...I mean REALLY liked it. So when he say to Peter that "You is not a killer and but I am." Do you think that is a sympathy thing? Do you think it was purely a kill steal, or is there a possibility he took it from Peter so it wouldn't be on his shoulders?

Also, David noticed something interesting...We don't ever have Sylar and Peter on the same side...when one is good the other one is bad...

I had the same thought about the lighter fluid.

My retcon no-prize rationale was that, since they're just on the beach, it was left over from someone's cookout.

Do you think it was purely a kill steal, or is there a possibility he took it from Peter so it wouldn't be on his shoulders?

I can see that as being part of the decision, certainly. But I don't think we'll see Sylar go back to the side of the angels any time soon, and I am a-ok with that. He's an interesting hero, but an excellent baddie.

Initially, I figured Sylar just wanted to eat Arthur's brain, but I wager if Arthur was slowly resisting the Haitian, then even Sylar wouldn't be able to hold him back long enough to chow down.

Also, David noticed something interesting...We don't ever have Sylar and Peter on the same side...when one is good the other one is bad...

For a while they were the real nemeses on the show, both effectively too powerful for anyone else to take on. I liked the brother angle, too (but I don't miss that it turned out to be a Petrelli power play.) They're playing with the equation, with a sort-of depowered Sylar, and an actually depowered Peter. Eager to see where that goes next.
