Wow, you know, that girl is really cute... [five minutes later] awww crap =P

And i'm glad they've didn't try to draw out the psychotic girl's "secret." It was pretty damn obvious as soon as they set up the last clue.

And it's still not clear if the glasses guy is evil or good or something in between, so it's possible that cute girl can still be redeemed.

He clearly does have feelings for his daughter so he's at least not totally sociopathic. And he's had lots of opportunities to kill certain people but not taken them. As far as we've actually seen he seems interested in gathering information and then releasing them back into the wild. Whatever else he is though he's certainly really damn manipulative. I actually didn't see the fake biological parents thing coming until the end. Right before the reveal i was expecting him to have his people swoop in to take them off for questioning or something.

So there are three possible bad guys so far, serial killer guy who is definitely evil, glasses guy who may or may not be, and psychotic girl, who so far _seems_ to at least restricted herself to criminals, but also seems to be quickly losing what grip she has left.

Speaking of which, they did do a very good job of making Mr. Kitty Pryde first a presence but an insignificant one, then briefly a potential threat, and now an at least somewhat likable guy.

Hiro and his sidekick seem like between them they _might_ have enough perspective and common sense for a single person. Future Hiro kicks ass though :)

Psychic guy seems to be wising up quickly, unfortunately not as quickly as the strength of his power is growing =/

And what exactly do they need to save the cheerleader _from_ if what she's been through hasn't killed her already? And wouldn't that be a daunting task if the rest of them just knew it? "This girl is at so much risk that even being immortal isn't good enough to save her ass, but you're expected to fix it."

Also, why does glasses guy have two pairs of glasses, one of which has a broken segment along the lower right-hand corner? I first noticed them during the scene at the hospital, and later he was playing with them while wearing another pair while cheerleader girl was talking to her "biological parents."

And an even better question, given that i got up early this morning why am i watching more Heroes rather than going into work? =P

Psychotic girl = Jessica/Niki?

Psychic guy = ? Isaac?

It would be easier to parse if you used names :P

And what exactly do they need to save the cheerleader _from_ if what she's been through hasn't killed her already?
MASSIVE SPOILER, so I won't tell you. I think it's episode 6 or so.

I'm bad at names =P Psychic guy = the police office who can hear people's thoughts... the episode synopsis on the box says his name is "Matt."

Is Isaac the precognitive artist? He seems to not entirely have hist shit together either, but he seems more like the questing artist/seer type, whereas Matt just seemed baffled and confused at first and (understandably) kept using his power in all the wrong ways at all the wrong moments at first.

Well yes, i'm sure the answers to most of my questions are missive spoilers :)

Oh, the cop. Yeah. He's conflicted. Isaac's the precog artist.

Claire's power is healing injury. It is indeed possible to kill her.

Have you figured out Sylar's power?

The Jessica/Niki situation is complicated, but her saving Hiro makes sense in context. If you know the spoilerrific bits.

Well she already got "killed" once, as in significant amounts of brain damage it looked like and wasn't breathing or having her heart beat for a couple hours. Yet as soon as they pulled the thing out of her head she came back to life. Almost instantly. I'm sure it's possible to kill her but that's far and beyond most regenerative capabilities anyone else has in most other media. Personally i wouldn't trust anything less than complete destruction of her brain via fire/acid/disintegration. We _have_ seen the scooped out brain people lying around so maybe that's the danger she's going to face, but that's not exactly your trivial run of the mill danger.

Well yes, they explained why Niki killed the people at the poker game later in the same episode. It just wasn't clear why she was doing it at the time.

Oh, and Sylar's power. Well at the crime scenes we've seen people lifted up and impaled on walls, and other people frozen solid and with their brains scooped out.

In person we've seen him force someone to almost shoot themselves, get shot at and not die, and then disappear. I didn't notice if we saw his method of egress or not though. Certainly it was very quick. Flying or high speed movement or invisibility or going through a wall or something like that.

It seems like a rather wild-grab bag of power, but a very wide range telekinetic ability could explain most of it. Lifting people and impaling them with stuff, check, forcing someone's gun to aim at their own head, check, stopping bullets, check, flying, check, freezing people... well maybe if the ability extends down to the molecular level...

The more whacky explanation would be that the flying guy's brother (P-something, persceli?) who absorbs other peoples' powers has a _much_ wider range than has been revealed so far. As in thousands of miles. And along with everything else he's grabbing he's getting Jessica/Niki's evil alternate personality "power" :)

There's a connection with Sylar that you need to make. I think Mohinder eventually figures it out. You've got all the pieces there, between these two comments, but you lack the connecting string.
DonAithnendonaithnen on September 20th, 2007 08:16 pm (UTC)
Well another possibility is that he's got a Rogue-like ability to steal other people's powers, which might explain all the missing brains :)

*whistles innocently*

Oh, and yes, "psychotic girl" meant the one with another personality.As soon as her husband said that "some girl" had committed the crime and laundered the money it was pretty obvious what had happened. I was wondering why she'd come to Hiro's rescue (it was obvious she was the one who had done it from the comment just before people started dying) but that was a well worked out "coincidence."

It's interesting reading these, because I'm in the odd position of having missed most of the *first* half of the series, but seen pretty much all of the last third, and some other random episodes. So I'm gradually figuring out who you're talking about, and know what's *going* to happen to them, but not what's going on where you are. Which pretty much means I can't say anything at all about anything. ^_^

Clearly, we need to make use of the DVDs next to the TV to rectify this situation ;)
