Yes indeed I thought she was Wireless, but I couldnt be sure .. I mean we've had some breaks in continuity before, (DL outside the car door, than shot standing somewhere else than where he'd been before ... not to mention the ever changing picture of Chandra Suresh waved at us over and over again) but to go from Wireless standing in the house about to wreak vengence, to demurely playing Jean Grey (and HRG acting like he didnt know her) is .. well, what the heck is going on?
Theory: each ep is in an alternate universe, Hiro's trip(s) did indeed cause a rift and we are seeing the results .. one universe is the future he traveled to and saw the nuclear bomb go off on Nov 8th, the other universe is the future the heroes are trying to create to 'save the world'
That would explain why Isaac painted the roof scene post nuclear war again a few eps ago, the roof is a way to see into both universes, the design is a focal point. (I cant be the only one who noticed the design on it looks almost like a lens in the middle, right?)
Now, when I first saw the preview, I thought, "Hooray, Simone does have a power!"
then it occurred to me that if she was dead, and Isaac flipped out (on drugs or not), that scene was exactly what we'd see. She was all shot up and bloodied. Or a super that can shift change to appear as someone from your past... So, we wont know if she is safe..ah, still alive, till after we see the ep.
Now, the fact that all the major powers that be chose to meet on the roof - well, Charles Deveaux may not have been on the side of angels that I thought. I thought he was using the building, that he designed it from a dream (or whatever, we're talking comic book logic here) to focus his abilities and try and shelter the supers as they came along to protect them from the OWI - now it looks like it was their favorite meeting spot! They met up there to shuffle kids around and order .. yet, when Charles was dying there, Claude/Chris chose that spot as his shelter, where no one would find him. I guess he knew if they met in town he'd be there to eavesdrop on them, but still, as scared as he was, I'd think he'd only choose it if he thought they'd never come back again. I mean what if the next partner someone came with had heat vision or something?
So ... was Charles on the side of angels? Was he an OWI insider - if he was, was Simone one too, was she picking up Peter to track him down for OWI or another branch of them? Was she his control? Or was she another super, being protected by her own dad? Or was she an agent about to lay down the law to her boys about what will or will not happen next time they kill her?
Or is Peter going to enter this rift to save Simone and have her walking between the dead and alive versions of herself
Now that we are entering final four phase, things are going to pick up steam. HRG has Radiation Man, which I saw as a bad sign - this means he is likely to get his hands on Peter, which, since Peter didnt see HRG in the dreams, is a bad move BECAUSE we now know how Peter can end up with Radiation Man's powers! HRG mixed the kettle when he should not -
I still thought RM would end up in NYC on his own and Peter would be waiting there for him, not knowing it was him necessarily. Now... could be the other way around, esp if Peter gets his mind wiped somehow (guess not Blink) so that he doesnt know he has RM's powers till its too late!
No Hiro and Ando at all this week! I dont know that we've ever gone a full ep without them - look how much grimmer it got! Have to see what happens next...
