Heroes Yammer

And tonight we have:

Unexpected. Peter learns that he and Claude may have been betrayed. Matt’s reunited with the radioactive Ted Sprague and Hana Gitelman a woman with "wireless" mental abilities. Due to Linderman’s influence Niki and Nathan meet again, this time under very different circumstances. After someone Hiro knows dies, he makes a tough choice about his mission. Claire can no longer hold back her anger towards HRG.

Claire telling HRG off should be fun.

  1. Wow, so, Peter went all bad-ass superhero on us. And Christopher Eccleston just gets better and better.
    It felt like everybody had more to do this week, including Hiro (him not having any powers was getting so tedious, so I’m glad to see that draw to an end too).
    I’m also glad to see Matt taking a more active role in the story, but again, sometimes it’s just painful to watch him do things like have hot diamonds stolen from Linderman IMMEDIATELY made into a ring for his wife. What? Shouldn’t a cop know how dangerous that is?
    Oh, and by the way, Charlie has been resurrected as a girl named Charlie guesting on Ugly Betty.

  2. I thought you’d be more upset about the death of yet another female character (two, if you want to count Dale, and as she was quite cool I think we should).
    On the other hand, Simone was ridiculously boring, and the actress was very, very bad. I suspect she’ll have a greater impact on the show as a corpse, but I wish I had more of a reaction to her death than ‘poor Peter.’
    I know I defended Matt’s intelligence last week, but I just can’t do it this time. His wife is right – he doesn’t think, just reacts out of emotion and immaturity and makes everything worse.
    Apparently, the new character Hana is supposed to be Israeli. I’m preparing myself to grit my teeth at all the Israeli clichés the writers are going to trot out. For one thing, it’s not even a question that she’s going to turn out to be some Mossad/special forces/covert ops veteran. At this point, I’d just like to point out that the only Israeli women of that age named Hana are orthodox or ultra-orthodox. It’s considered a very old-fashioned name in Hebrew – like meeting a thirty year old named Gladys or Bertha.
    I’m starting to get a little worried about the season-long arc. There are only six episodes left in the season, and the separate plotlines haven’t yet begun to coalesce into a single one (Niki, D.L., and Micah are still off on their own). By this point, I would have expected to have an idea of what the endgame was going to look like. Instead, the show still feels almost extemporaneous.

  3. Somehow, I completely edited the two more dead women out of my memory overnight. Um, yes, disturbing. I think I have gone from anger over into denial. And it is sad that the mechanic got axed so quickly because she seemed like a really and truly interesting character. Gah.
    But good riddance to Simone. That actress didn’t have chemistry with either one of the boys, imo; doubly tragic since that seemed to be the only thing they ever gave her to do.
    And I’m with you on the plotting concerns.

  4. Oh yeah, interesting about Niki and Nathan too — wasn’t she supposed to be assassinating him this week? Did I blink and miss that? I guess they cut it for time or something. It made the episode description.

  5. TV.com mentions showdown between Jessica and Nathan in next week’s episode description. Because obviously Matt and Ted holding the Bennett family hostage isn’t going to sufficiently ramp up the tension.

  6. Notes from the director of the episode here, although it’s pretty much all technical stuff. Interestingly he wasn’t that happy with the final shoot-out in the Hiro storyline, and I thought that (focusing on Hiro and Ando in the bus, while the shoot-out happens off-camera) was very effective.

  7. Oh, and as is now traditional, I disagree with Abigail. 🙂 I thought this episode did a good job of starting to bring plot threads together again, and I think six episodes is more than enough time to satisfactorily bring everything together in NY. (Whether of course they *will* do that is another matter.)

  8. I watched this one again last night with Christopher and we weren’t completely convinced by the special effect that was supposed to indicate that Hiro can reverse time? (If that’s indeed what it was.) There was a noise when the bullet went back into the gun and she recoiled, which she wouldn’t have done had she just been stopped from firing in the first place. I dunno. I figured it was just the best they could do.
    Oh, and we also decided we’re finally liking the whole East Coast/West Coast Avengers sort of thing.

  9. Do we think HRG works for Linderman? If so, that brings absolutely all the characters together to converge on Linderman within the next few weeks. I really would like to see them all meet up.

  10. I’m thinking so — wasn’t there a reference to Linderman wanting Sylar(sp) kept alive, or did I imagine that? Also, Mohinder and Sylar? Totally in love.

  11. I’m looking forward to the moment when Linderman’s desk chair spins around and reveals his face. I’m having an absurd and completely wrongheaded desire for him to be played by muppet-Angel, the wee little puppet man.
