The episode started with Peter and Simone’s dad talking, and Peter telling him he could fly. He jumps out of the window and the camera soars around NYC and then Peter wakes up. Claire’s nerd friend finds the tape, which probably means her dad put it back. Unfortunately for Claire her little brother might decide to watch it.
Niki wakes up and realizes that Micah is gone. It was like a two minute scene of her looking around and then telling the red headed slut that Micah was gone. Sorry, but I am not really that interested in her story anymore, although she is still hot.
Matt was about to tell his wife about his powers, and then she starts thinking crazy things like “oh no, how does he know.” He decides to just go to work. I bet she has an STD.
Did anyone notice the Motorola commercial that Bo Bice sang for? I guess he was too good for Eat ‘n Park, but not too good for Motorola. What a loser. Sorry, I usually do not watch commercials, but just feel like it today.
Okay, Claire’s brother stapling her was great. What better way to test if your sister is a freak than by shooting her with a staple gun. It works out for him too, if she is not a freak then he gets to laugh at her staple scar. If she is a freak then he at least knows the truth.
How anticlimatic. Syler is some dude. I hope that it turns out to be fake, and that there is some twist to who he is. At least Clea DuVall is back, I think I am the only one who is attracted to her, but oh well.
Oh yeah, and something else, how is Linderman connected to everything? Did you notice that he is the one who bought the painting of Isaacs? Plus gave Nathan money. He is most likely bad, but still has something to do with everything.
DL and Hiro helping the car crash folks was pretty damn sweet. I enjoyed watching DL slip his hand into the glass. Hiro still cracks me up, “why couldn’t I have super-strength too.” Hiro’s power has been the hardest to convince everyone of so far, since when he stops time, only he can move through it.
Nathan’s wife is a crip, and not like the gang members, but in a wheelchair. It seems like Nathan was driving and must have wrecked, which caused her to be in the chair. Great to see that Nathan is so ashamed of his brother that he gets angry that he shows up for imaginary everyday brunch. Peter was great though, saying they should fly around the Statue of Liberty. Then telling the writer that he got an earful for wearing cords. Hopefully Nathan will help him get ahold of Linderman.
Matt and Clea go to see Syler, but he is not home. I think Clea must be kind of an embarassment to the FBI, since she does not have backup or some taskforce. Now Syler’s power consists of being able to burn things with radiation? They will need Peter to get near him and use his powers against him, especially if Hiro comes around and freezes time. If they combine, all of them, they would really be great fighting together.
Claire and Zack get her brother out of the SUV. He gives up the tape when Claire explains they will not be family anymore. Zack did not really help the situation, but he made me laugh, especially when he says they are going to anal probe him.
Peter was great when lying to the reporter about why they went to Vegas. I guess Nathan will have to help him now.
The Sprague guy was not Syler. Good thing too, but he is also one of our superpeople. He gives off radiation, he can burn people or whatever. But, Matt proves to be the hero by reading his wife’s mind. The guy settled down, but then she died, so who knows.
Niki/Jessica threatens the Red-Headed Slut after breaking the mirror. I guess Jessica will start tracking DL now, I wonder if she has the strength to lift a bus. I would love to see her toss a bus at DL and him pass through it. Although I doubt that this show has the budget for that one.
Matt called his wife and actually talked to her, well the machine, and actually said how he felt without reading her mind. Hopefully, everything will be fine.
Nathan tells Peter about the kidnapping, and Peter does not believe him, how odd that he wants everyone to believe him, but will not believe his brother was kidnapped and that people may want to hurt them.
Whoa, I knew Micah was one of them. He has some connection to machines. He also knows about Jessica and that she is not her mom. DL vs. Niki part zwei. This time she is going in ready, lock and load bitches. Sorry, I listened to Denis Leary the other day…
Matt finds out that his friend/partner is banging his wife and the punches the dude in the mouth. I wonder how he will handle this with his wife? Plus, Clea got him another exam for detective, and some special interview. Maybe they could team and be like the X-Files.
On a side note, it is Tim Sale who does the paintings for the show. Tim Sale is an extraordinary comic artist. He is best known for his work with Jeph Loeb on Spider-Man: Blue, Daredevil: Yellow, and Hulk: Grey. Also, their monumental Batman: The Long Halloween and Dark Victory stories were incredible, as was Superman: For All Seasons.
Again, I did not see the preview for the next episode. Will they be going on hiatus? Did they only shoot the first seven episodes in case the show tanked? On IMDB it originally said that most of the actors only filmed seven. Hopefully we do not have to wait too long for another episode.
