Heroes Season 2  

First off, why did Matt get a divorce? Any reason besides possible the actor who played his wife not wanting to come back for another season? And why is Nathan not a congressperson? Did the fraud get figured out? Did he have an emotional breakdown because of the possible loss of his brother and resign? (Clearly he's having emotional issues, it's just not clear where they fall in the cause/effect chain.) And speaking of Nathan, what was up with that second of him looking in the mirror and seeing someone with a burnt/scarred/something face?

Let's hope Peter never ever ever meets Maya!!! At least not without her brother around too, since presumably he has the power to repress her power? What is it she does anyway? Emit some kind of high pitched noise that ruptures everyone's blood vessels or something? (Two by two, hands of blue...)

Claire's new friend seems to have the first actual spontaneous repeat of a power we've seen, unless there's some other way to explain his levitation and flying than TK or, well, flying :) Is he supposed to be juts curious or creepy though? And in either case why does he think something is up with Claire? When he came back into the gym her legs were already healed. In any case his appearance combined with her going into hiding probably means that we'll never see Zack again :(

I'm not sure what to think about Molly's accusations about Matt cheating at the detective tests. It's not like the ability to read minds wouldn't be incredibly useful in his job, so it is a job related skill.

I'm wondering if Hiro is going to have to spend several episodes convincing Kensai to actually become a hero, or if he's going to end up fulfilling the legends and becoming Kensai himself. The later could take years though, and presumably end with him married to the swordsmith's daughter, which would kind of put a crimp on any plans for him to go back to the future.

I was't sure if that was actually Peter in the cargo container at the end of the episode, but i'm told it is indeed him, just with his hair cut off. So someone chained him up and stuck him in there and presumably arranged things so the thieves would find him there. Why? What does whoever it is want to get out of it, and for whose benefit?

So Hiro's dad mentioned there being nine of the old group of specials, but i can't remember (or wasn't clear at the time) if that was before or after Linderman and Peter's dad (and any others?) were killed, and if it included him and Peter's mom or not. It would seem now that Hiro's dad and whoever came to kill him are both dead. Of course given the people we're talking about appearances can be very deceptive. And presumably the guy who came to kill him wouldn't have done so by throwing them both off the building if he didn't think he was going to survive it himself somehow. Wasn't Hiro's dad planning to leave town for Japan to go into hiding though? Why'd he wait around so long?

"why is Nathan not a congressperson?": I thought his getting elected (both to congress and then president) was at least partly contingent on NY going boom. Plus with Linderman dead, whatever additional fraud he was planning might not happen. But regardless of all that, he seems so depressed now he probably would've dropped out anyway.

"what was up with that second of him looking in the mirror?" I wasn't sure. Conni thought it might be *his* real face, from being too close to the explosion, but then where'd he get some power to hide it? Maybe it was him imagining explosion effects on Peter (who we know came out fine aside from his memory, but Nathan doesn't know anything about)? Dunno.

"What is it [Maya] does anyway?" On another form someone called it Evil Stigmata, which seemed appropriate for their Catholic region. Dunno.

Claire's friend's power repeat: Someone else postulated magnetic field or gravity field manipulation, but either would be pretty similar in practice to TK...

Peter: "Why?": I suspect this is going to be a running question for like the first half of the season.

Cabal counting: Nakamura said nine "left", I believe including them, so I presume there were twelve before the season one deaths. (Linderman, Peter's dad, bedridden guy Peter was caring for) I don't think the killer died (no body). I think Nakamura was still conflicted about waiting for Hiro, so decided to stay and fight. Unfortunately.

I'm so betting Nichelle Nichols (Uhura) will be a new cabal member.

No, he'd already won the election, it was becoming president that was dependent on New York going boom. He was going to trade on the sympathy of being the freshman congressperson from the city that just got blown up.

Yeah, i thought of the possibility of it being what he actually looked like, but then how'd he get another power?

Maybe that's what Nakamura was thinking, but waiting in one place for a guy who can teleport to come back is a little silly :)

And then later William Shatner will turn out to be in charge of the whole thing? ;)
