Tonight’s episode was quite interesting, in that we are starting to learn more and more, and supposedly it is going to start tying together. I will try a different approach tonight, I will discuss each character’s stories, and then talk about my own theories.
The episode started with Mohinder spreading his father’s ashes back home in India. A friend tells him that he is welcome back to Chennai University when classes start back up. At his office, some hot Indian chick comes in and starts telling him that she is working for some genetics company and that Mohinder should come and interview for a job, but he would have to not mention his father’s work. Anyone notice that Mohinder gets all sorts of chicks? Mohinder dreams about an argument between he and his father. Mohinder thinks he is foolish for going to NYC, and that he will end up driving a taxi. Mohinder meets some weird kid during his dream. Mohinder’s mom tells him that he had a sister, Shanti, who died. Chandra thought the girl was special.
Mohinder again sees little kid in his father’s office and he then chases him outside. He sees his father murdered inside of his taxi cab. The little kid hands him a key, which was the key inside his father’s book found in a previous episode. Mohinder searches his father’s desk and finds a folder on Iyer Sanjog. He sees a picture of the boy from his dreams, and also sees articles about sleep research revealing new areas of brain.
Hiro and Ando
At the Burnt Toast Diner, Hiro and Ando meet a waitress named Charlie. She has the ability to remember anything she reads. When we first see her we witness her answering all sorts of hard questions for cops about the crossword puzzle and old movies. She impresses Hiro and Ando by speaking a little Japanese after reading a Japanese phrase book about a week ago.
She flirts with Hiro while he teaches her Japanese. She says how her brain seems to be able to remember anything, and Hiro says he also has a power, but then jokes that it is teaching anyone Japanese. We see Syler sitting in the corner, and he makes his glass move towards him with only his mind. She is in the back when Syler attacks her. The cops inform Hiro and Ando that her head was ripped off and her brain removed. Hiro says he must go back in time and save her and that she was killed the same way as Isaac was in the future. Ando is against him going back, he tells him that he still cannot really control his teleportation, but Hiro will not hear it. He says when he disappears and Ando counts to five, that he will have returned. Ando counts to five, and Hiro does not disappear. We then see a photo hanging on the wall, originally in the episode it was Charlie by herself at her birthday, but this time Hiro is with her in the photo.
Isaac, Claire, Eden, and Mr. Bennett
Eden cleans Isaac up, gives him a sexy shave. Why is that Eden is always using her sexiness on someone? And why is it never me? Anyways…She says she can teach him to paint without the drugs. Eden says she went through the same thing herself. Does she mean heroin? Or does she have some kind of power as well? I bet it is super-sexiness.
Claire’s dad works at a paper company, but below it is where they are holding Isaac. Mr. Bennett tells Isaac that the cheerleader is his daughter. He says that Syler is going to kill her tomorrow at the homecoming game. Syler is killing them one at a time and Mr. Bennet knows who he is, just does not know where or when he will strike next. Mr. Bennett offers Isaac drugs in order to complete the paintings. Mr. Bennett explains how they have been tracking special people. Sometimes people misinterpret their motives. Fourteen years ago, did he say they stabbed a woman to death? She left behind a baby girl, that he adopted.
Isaac wants to try and paint without the drugs, one more time. Claire visits her dad at work in order to get some really large paper. Eden comes out and sees Claire, and tells Mr. Bennett they have a situation. Claire leaves and Eden says that Isaac cannot do it. Mr. Bennett wants Eden to get Isaac to use heroin, and he tells her that she is the easy way. She is against it, and Mr. Bennett reminds her that he was the one who taught her and to remember what she was before he found her. We see at the end Isaac painting while high. Claire and her dad have a nice little bonding moment.
Matt and Audrey
Audrey is pretty upset with Matt for punching a fellow officer. She wants him to help her interview the radiation dude. She finds it weird that there are 3 people out there with weird powers, Matt, Syler, and now Radiation Boy. When they interview him he gets angry and their radiation meters start turning red, which is bad I guess.
It turns out Matt and he had similar situations, where they both blacked out and woke up with bruises. He tells the story about a night at a bar, he blacks out and then wakes up with his powers. He saw a Haitian in the bar. Matt also thinks he saw the same guy when he blacked out.
Matt goes home and his wife is looking at pictures. She knows he punched Tom. He admits it, and she starts thinking that Matt knows. Matt says he was suspended for one month without pay, that is when she admits to sleeping with Tom. Matt does not know if things will be alright or not between them. Audrey calls and says Radiation Boy escaped.
The little kid from Mohinder’s dream was probably Iyer Sanjog. I bet he has some kind of projection powers. He can enter people’s dreams. I wonder if Mohinder has some kind of power?
Hiro went back in time, obviously far enough back in time to befriend Charlie. We see him in the picture with her on her birthday. Sadly though, she will still die at the hands of Syler. This will probably be where Hiro learns more about his powers, he and Charlie can explore them together, if she reads enough about quantum mechanics, she can figure out how he can control his powers. Also, if he goes in time and hangs out with Charlie, I am sure she will help him learn better english.
It seems I was right that Mr. Bennett knew Claire would eventually have powers. I do not know if he is a good guy or bad guy though. I would imagine they are bad, they want to monitor and track people with powers, but they also want to control them. Look at what they did to Matt and Radiation Boy, they marked them and did weird things to them.
I think Audrey has a thing for Matt, I bet they sleep together. Also, if you check IMDB you will see that Sean Bean aka Boromir, is Syler. That kind of hurts the theories that Syler is Peter from the future, but it does not hurt the idea that Peter’s father is Syler.
