Heroes: .07%

Peter and Sylar finish their showdown. At first, it looks like Peter might have the upper hand. But as everybody knows, YOU CAN’T BEAT CRAZY! Peter ends up “dead”, while Mohinder knocks out Sylar (but doesn’t kill him for some reason), then takes Dead Peter to the Petrelli house, where Mama Petrelli and Nathan cry and gnash their teeth … then Claire shows up and says, “Um. Did you guys try just pulling this piece of glass out of his head?” Et voila, Peter is alive again.

Heroes: Parasite

It’s all coming together now, with plenty of twists and turns and characters overlapping all over the place …

Peter is especially mobile this episode, first dodging bullets at Isaac’s, then eavesdropping on Nathan’s meeting with the FBI, and finally ending up at Mohinder’s. Where, in one of the funniest “meta” moments in television history, Sylar slices off the long bangs that have apparently been driving Milo Ventimiglia insane for months. But I’m getting ahead of myself …

Heroes: Company Man

Wow!!! I defy anybody to “meh” that episode. We got action, flashbacks, history reveals, parallel storytelling, and the most brutal Claire-healing yet. Okay, so no Sylar, no Petrellis, and after two weeks, still no sign of Niki. But the focused storyline was well worth it to get so much information and closure in one episode.

Heroes: Unexpected

Hana the Human Web Surfer finds Ted, who now wants to blow up Bennet, whose wife is dying because of too much mind-wiping by the Haitian, who accompanies Bennet to NYC to try and capture Claude, who is saved by Peter, who thanks to Claude is now able to better control his powers, which he uses to fly he and Claude to safety and to confront Isaac, who is now a narc for Bennet and who unintentionally kills Simone, who dies in the arms of Peter, who is becoming increasingly aggressive (like Sylar?) and who Claude is pissed at for revealing his not-deadness to Bennet, who Claire is pissed at for making her mother sick and who has been injecting radioisotopes into people like Hana and Ted and Matt, all of whom invade the Bennet house with guns to get justice, which is what Suresh tells “Zane” he would like for his father, who was killed by Zane/Sylar, who also kills the Mechanic with Super-Hearing, whose powers he steals, which gives him a Super-Headache and probably makes him wish that everybody talked in subtitles, like Hiro and Ando, who almost get killed by Hope, who shoots at Hiro, who unwittingly uses his powers to rewind time and stop the bullet from hitting him and who tells Ando to go home in order to protect him and who boards a bus driven by Stan Lee, whose awesome cameo was completely spoiled by the opening credits.

Heroes: Run!

Ando and Hiro return to Vegas, where they plan to steal the sword from Linderman, who some tall chick named Hope claims to know as she seduces Ando, who steals a pink bag for her against the wishes of Hiro, who gets socked in the nose by Hope, who locks him in a storage room and tells Ando he’s with Linderman, who has hired Jessica to kill some dude, who stole 2 million dollars from Linderman and who — despite Matt’s best efforts — ends up dead, just like the Metal Melting Guy, who Sylar got to before Mohinder, who is now going to recruit “Zane”, who he doesn’t realize is actually Sylar, who is the reason the Haitian & Mr. Bennet had to wipe the memory of Mrs. Bennet again, which is why she can no longer remember Mr. Muggles or Claire, who once again visits her real mom, Firestarter, who extorts $100K from Nathan and lies about the amount to Claire, who throws a rock at a teary-eyed Nathan, who Jessica has now been hired to kill.

Heroes: Distractions

Okay, first a quiz question for the uber-geeks out there:

What was the license plate number of Hiro’s father’s car, and why is it important?

With that out of the way, let’s fast-forward through the rest of the episode. Unlike Hiro, I can’t stop or slow down time, and there’s a lot of work on my plate today …

Heroes: The Fix

In this episode of Heroes

Hiro is still looking for his sword, and in the process, he and Ando get kidnapped by some men in a van, who it turns out work for Hiro’s father, George Takei (“Oh MY!”). Of course, the fact that the NBC marketing department already revealed this casting weeks ago took all the steam and surprise out of this particular plotline for me. I wonder when the networks will figure out that people who watch TV shows actually LIKE surprises?

Heroes: Godsend

Two weeks of show time have passed since the last episode of Heroes. During that time, Peter has been in a coma, Niki’s been in jail, Matt has been staking out Primatech Paper in search of Sylar, the radioactive guy has been practicing his powers, Claire has been pretending to not have a memory, and Hiro has been looking for the sword that will help him regain full use of his powers.

Heroes: Fallout

In this episode of Heroes, Matt the Cop finally joins the fray, interrogating both Peter and Claire. Unfortunately, he’s frustrated in both instances. Peter’s power mimicking ability creates some nasty telepathic feedback for him, and Claire and her father are under the telepathic protection of “The Haitian”. Who, by the way, needs a name already. Seriously. Unless maybe he has one, but has wiped it out of the heads of everybody who’s ever heard it?

Heroes: Six Months Ago

Six months ago, on Heroes

Eden had long hair. Peter became a male nurse. Nathan regretted buying a convertible. Claire received the cheerleader outfit that she wouldn’t take off for six months. Matt ate a dozen doughnuts. Hiro couldn’t save the waitress he had grown to love. Niki the recovering alcoholic took on her dead sister’s personality as an alter ego. D.L. wasn’t in jail yet. Papa Suresh wasn’t dead yet. And Isaac apparently wasn’t even born yet.
