Okay - Isaac was right in line to be a new disciple to HRG till the drug trip - we'll see what that does to him next...
I loved HRG's self justification speech -I'm really a good guy, see, it's just that some people unreasonably object to being kidnapped and experimented upon, and I was forced to kill a woman (and maybe a few others I wont go into now) but I did get a cute bouncing baby girl out of it, so wont you work with me, please?
I imagine all the disciples were people whose lives were so messed up that being kidnapped and experimented on was the best thing they had happen to 'em - look somebody actually cares enough to kidnap me! Isaac was at the end of his rope, he'd torn his life apart trying to find an answer to how to stop the nuclear bomb - I'm sure all Evil Waif had to do was offer him drugs (or not) or just ask him to come with her and he'd have gone -not intentionally abandoning Peter and the quest, but he was having a difficult time with the drug cycle and not thinking clearly.
Then we see Evil Waif actually has the power to command people (like she needed it - she was already an Evil Waif! Redundant!) so she could have just told him, you're coming with me, and then Blink could make him forget about other obligations -if he even remembered out of his drug haze what they were.
It was interesting HRG said to Evil Waif "Do you even remember what you were?" bcs, odds are, with Blink about, that she doesnt. And maybe feels grateful about that.
Still HRG is managing his business well and is genuinely concerned about Claire, at least. Not to mention his experiments suffering in general from Sylar removing his prize subjects, but he does have some attachment for her beyond the 'subject I raised myself'.
I noticed he didnt renew next months parking pass, and the interior of his lab had a packed and ready to go look - I wonder if he's planning on relocating soon.
HRG is the face of evil but Sylar ... Sylar has no face!!
They showed us much closer than before - and its just not there!! That is soooooooo creepy.
And I liked it
That scene where he kills the waitress.. ugh
I'm not into horror - but to match the can-opening exactly.. ewwee - when she punched the hole in the can, she could feel in the back of her head, and looked around ... nothing there and then... ewweee!
Hope Hero manages to do something. Things for him look ...interesting next week. Ando is going to be the link man, it looks like, and Peter is going to be very very busy.
Meanwhile Mohinder -
Okay they flipped the cover on the book again! This was again waived in our face, bcs they knew that we knew that they knew we knew .. and Mohinder's smirk at the picture echoed our own.
And as predicted, we cant have an actor of that caliber on the book without seeing him somewhere, so at last we got the Mohinder and Father interactions, there was an actual fight, and we have a missing sister revealed. Perhaps the one that started 'Papa Suresh' on the quest to find other special people in the world.
To be honest, I havent figured out the kid's role at all. He appears in dreams and seems to knock people out almost to get them to appear in them with him, and he takes them on journeys to the past .. for what purpose or rhyme or reason? It looks cool? What? I need more than a file with a picture on it for this angle to really work. Hopefully they do more with it than just a 'and Thus Mohinder's Motivation is Reborn!
' title bit and send him on his merry way.
Matt's finally getting answers, but Nuclear Man is escaped on the rampage - and what is with that evil Homeland Security woman (help me out, was she on Star Trek- she is so familiar but I cant remember what I saw her in) always screaming at somebody and ignoring the evidence right in front of her. FBI gal and he are off to play Nancy Drew and Hardy boys and track down the Haitian Man, aka Blink. Good luck with that, fellas.
