While not a terrible episode, last night’s show felt like filler to me. Or at least, a sort of bridge to get us to the more interesting stuff. There were only a few advances made in the story, though I’m sure they will lead to major things later.
Hana and Ted meet, and find Matt. I was excited to see Wireless in person, but somehow disappointed in her voice..? It just wasn’t like I’d imagined while reading her comics. I was wondering, were people who don’t read the online comics lost at all when she just showed up? They didn’t introduce her very well on the show. Anyway, this went pretty much nowhere last night, but next week looks verrrry interesting.
Claire confronts her father about The Haitian. Awesomeeeee. So dad knows she knows. Also curious to see how this pans out next week.
Peter harnesses his powers, but starts using them for evil. Isaac accidentally shoots Simone. Way to go Peter! Your story has gotten a lot less boring and you’ve gotten less annoying. And a big thumbs up to Isaac for getting rid of Simone!
Hiro learns another lesson. Why do all the Hiro/Ando stories seem to be life lessons? Don’t give up on your dreams. You don’t have to have super powers to be a hero. Don’t abandon your friends. Bla bla bla. Too bad neither of them saw that Hiro can still stop time, sans sword. Now they’re going to have to continue on this silly quest.
Sylar and Mohinder team up to murder and research the heroes, respectively. First of all, did they drive from Virgina Beach to Montana?! Second of all, how long is it going to take Mohinder to realize who Sylar is? My theory is that first he’ll think Sylar is somehow following them, and that’s why everyone they meet is getting murdered. Then he’ll start noticing that “Zane” is acting suspicious. Then Sylar will accidentally drop a hint – maybe he’ll mention some new thing he can do, or otherwise reveal something that he only could have learned/done via a different power. Or maybe Mohinder will catch a glimpse of his watch. By the way, even GG pointed out last night what a shame it was to kill off such an awesome new character so quickly. SuperEars had a really neat power that would have been interesting to watch her use, and she was kind of funny, too!
So I’m really excited for next week, and the Bennet origin story!
