First off, I apologize to everyone for the tardiness of this post. There really is no excuse for me.
This episode began with Peter following the Invisible Man asking him to teach him about his powers. The InM did not seem to care about Peter’s problems, but mentions that he has met others with Peter’s powers, and later he called him an empath.
Hiro and Ando are taking Isaac’s painting to Linderman when someone with a gun tries to stop them. They run away and hide. Hiro is unable to use his power at all at this point. He and Ando have some nice discussions, and Hiro explains that he needs his help on the quest. When they are finally discovered, Hiro gets away, but Ando is caught. Hiro gives himself up to save Ando, but they are both taken anyways.
Claire and Zack try to find anything about Claire’s real parents on her dad’s computer, but there is nothing there. She asks the Haitian and he says her mom died in a fire in a small town in Kermit, Texas. He knows nothing of her father. Mr. Bennett comes home and sees Claire and Zack, and they tell him they are lab partners in Bio and have a report to do about manatees. Claire acts like she is annoyed to be paired with him, and her dad reminds her that they used to be friends.
The two of them continue looking into the fire in Texas, and it turns out that a woman was killed along with her 18 month old daughter. They begin calling everyone in Kermit with the same last name (does anyone remember if the woman’s name was Barbara Gordon?) and at the end Claire tells the last lady how she might be the daughter, and the woman says that she is her mother, and it turns out she has a power, she is a pyro.
Matt goes up for review in his department, and they read his statement and think he is absolutely nuts, so he decides to say he made it all up. They suspend him for six months, which is good for us because it might allow Matt the chance to get out to NYC or track down the Haitian, or a little of both. I think he will eventually hear from Mohinder and that will lead him to NYC.
Speaking of Mohinder, he and Nathan try to confront Peter. Mohinder thinks he can help Peter, but Peter does not think he has the time. He escapes from them, and they assume he jumped out the window. But we then see that the InM grabbed him and they are just invisible. InV agrees to help Peter, because even though he isn’t much of a people person, he does not want them all dead.
DL breaks into prison to see Niki, and they have a wonderful little moment. Niki is going to let Jessica talk to the shrink. The only interesting thing about this storyline so far, is Micah. We finally get to see him use his powers. I know he used the out of order payphone, but that was alluding to his power. He talks to the ATM and it gives him tons of money. He then tells DL that he has a secret just like mom and dad.
Hiro and Ando await the big boss. Their kidnapper offers them first class tickets back to Tokyo, as long as they abandon their quest. Hiro is told that someone with great power wants him to stop. When the van door opens, Mr. Sulu is standing there and then Captain Kirk is revealed to be Mr. Linderman. Okay just kidding, but George Takai is standing there, and Hiro says “Father?” and then he gulps.
What will Hiro’s father’s power be? I guess in the preview Claire’s mom calls a guy and it turns out to be Claire’s dad. The internet rumor is Nathan, which I think is silly. We have noticed that Heroes keeps introducing characters, and Eric Roberts is due on the show, as someone named Thompson. He is my best bet as Claire’s father. Some people use the foreshadowing that Zach says to Claire, maybe you will have a crazy uncle. If Nathan was her father, that would make Peter her uncle, and that would get rid of all the Peter/Claire relationship rumors.
Anyways, let me know what you thought.
