Heroes last night! Aaaahhh! I just need to scream because this show is so awesome! (There’s a few spoilers below, so don’t read if you don’t want to ruin things a little bit.)
The best part is, I e-mailed Paul and Julie a bunch of spoilers/speculation that I’d found, and a lot of it came true last night. For example, Eden and Mr. Bennet working together. Also, Eden is a hero, with the power of suggestion. (Though, clearly, it’s not a very strong power. Even if Mohinder will come back from India, she couldn’t just get him to stay in the first place.) Also, I liked when she told Mr. Bennet that there’s a guy who can time travel, and he said, “That’s cool.” He’s supposedly a good guy who’s trying to protect the heroes, and I noticed last night that he’s seeming a little less sinister. It still doesn’t explain why he has to be so creepy and kidnappy, though.
I don’t hate Niki as much anymore. It’s clearly MirorNiki who’s the bad guy. Whatever the case, Niki doesn’t have much of a super power, or as Dr. Suresh writes, some sort of genetic mutation or evolution. She might not be an actual “hero” like the rest of them in the show, though. (Even though the producer has said that Sylar is the main villian of Season 1, Niki might be another bad guy – at least as far as DL is concerned!)
DL and Micah were cute… hopefully we’ll see what happens to them next week. Also, Uluru!
Poor Claire. Those people she met were clearly just actors. If her mom weren’t such a moron, she might have realized it – they weren’t able to find the parents when Claire was sick as a baby, but suddenly Mr. Bennet can get them on the phone and invite them to the house? Now that I’m thinking about it, I wonder if maybe her adoptive parents are her real parents? And they have powers too, whether or not they know about them? But that’s sort of a horrible thing, to tell your real child that they’re adopted. (Though it would explain the mom’s ditziness – it’s all just an act.)
How cute is Hiro?! “I have a sword?” I can’t wait until he meets his love interest. Also Ando’s line about “It’s how we roll” cracked me up.
In general, I thought that this episode moved a little faster than previous ones. At least, it jumped between the various storylines more quickly.
Also last night, GG finished this Halloween painting he was doing for his mom’s classroom. Yes, just finished it. He went to bed around 3AM, and woke up about when I did (5:30), and went to give it to his mom before she left for work. So… it’ll be on display for one day. It’s a pretty awesome painting, though – a witch stirring a cauldron with a horse leg, bones, and a snake hanging out. And the steam coming up has evil faces in it. When he gets it back, we’ll put some photos up on his portfolio site. (Ask me for the URL, because I’m not going to link to it from here.)
