This could have been the best episode ever, but much of it dealt with Niki and the family, which pretty much sucked. Instead of talking about them, I will just pretend they did not exist and discuss the coolness of Peter’s story.
The episode begins with Adam telling Peter who he is and that the Haitian must have erased his memories. Adam says that Peter can get them back by using Adam’s healing power. Once Peter tries to think about Nathan he starts to remember…
We flash back to Peter about to explode and Nathan flying him away. Before he blows, Peter tells Nathan to let him go, but the blast injures Nathan. Peter heals and swoops down and saves Nathan and rushes him to a hospital. Nathan is horribly burned.
Peter tries to slip away, but is hit by a bolt of electricity by Elle, who accompanies Bob. When Peter wakes up he is with the Company. Bob explains that they are trying to find a way to cure Peter so that he cannot hurt his family. Peter begins taking pills that suppress his powers.
Elle likes to come in and shock him and be kind of flirty, which let me be honest, was pretty hot. Peter talks to his neighboring cell mate, Adam Monroe. Adam tells him that they are prisoners and that the supposed cure has been in the works for over 3 decades.
After awhile, Peter realizes that Adam told him the truth about the facility being a prison. Peter stops taking his meds and helps Adam escape. They go to the hospital and Adam gives Nathan some of his blood. The blood immediately starts to cure Nathan.
Elle and the Haitian come for both of them, and Adam says they will rendezvous in Montreal. The Haitian catches Peter and blocks his powers, then he handcuffs him inside of the tanker. He gives Peter his necklace and erases his memories. The Haitian says he is helping Peter start over his life.
As the time catches back up, Peter says that he remembers everything. Adam asks him if he is ready to save the world…
Interesting. I would love to believe that over 400 years Adam has changed and really does want to save the world. I hope he has not just spent the next 400 years preparing himself to kill Hiro.
What did you guys think of the episode? Feel free to comment on other aspects of the show, like Niki and her next dumbass personality, or whatever else.
