Yay! Heroes!

Claire is a lot less likable this season =P

Er, using the voice in head thing on Molly is a little creepy, i hope Matt doesn't start progressing from stupid to evil =P

If you're Claire, the solution to someone pointing a gun at you is to charge them. Don't give them time to think or make threats.

Wow, this is a very back and forth episode.

It would be cool if Hiro managed to save his dad, but it would kind of involve rewinding the entire season so far =P

Hmmm, you know, now that Peter is starting to learn to time travel/teleport, he can go acquire any ability he wants.

Um, why didn't Hiro at least stick around long enough to see who it was that killed his dad? =P Oh, wait, nevermind :)

Ahhhh, yes, i'd actually forgotten that part and parcel of the prediction that Kensei had survived to the present was the possibility that he was the one who killed Hiro's dad. The argument was it had to be someone who can regenerated, someone who can fly, or someone who can do illusions, so that meant either West, Adam, or Nathan or Peter, presumably under some kind of mind control.

I really don't see how Mohinder could justify that. They had been friends working together to bring down the company, he knew that Bob and Elle had been planning on killing Noah. I can see how he might not appreciate Noah shooting down Bob in cold blood, but it shouldn't really excuse him shotting Noah first. He preemptively killed someone who was going to preemptively kill someone who was going to preemptively kill him first.

*blinks* Okay, i admit that was a theoretically predictable but practically entirely surprising end. How long can you be dead and still have Claire or Adam's blood bring you back?

Also, while discussing the episode with Lady_Shelleycat an interesting question came up. Immortal blood seems to be good against normal injuries and presumably diseases. But the Shanti virus seems to feed on powers. What happens when you inject the Immortal blood into Niki and mix it with the virus...?

Two more episodes left for the half season...

(In case you're missing my weekly reply - argh, forgot to watch it last night, will have to catch it on the web or something later, not reading your spoilers yet. :P )

Ok, now I've seen it, so, weekly reply commentary ho.

Claire... well, she *is* a teenager. I'll chalk it up to hormones interacting with an admittedly pretty messed up life situation.

When Matt used the head-voice on Molly , I think he had jsut discovered it and was "testing". Then he didn't tell her what he'd done to avoid freaking her out. Slightly stupid, but understandable. Of course, later it appears he went all the way to force Mrs. Petrelli to give up her most closely-held secret, so he's definitely treading into dangerous territory now.

At this point I'd have been pretty shocked if it *wasn't* Kensei who killed Nakamura. In fact, I know we'd established that Adam = Kensei, and hadn't Bob already more or less said that Adam was the killer? I suppose he could've been wrong, but it didn't seem likely.

Mohinder really should've just shot Bennet in the arm or something if he thought he had to. OTOH, I suppose he's not very good with a gun... maybe he wasn't actually aiming for the head?

Personally, I would've *expected* that healing blood could bring you back good as new from anything short of brain-death. So I wouldn't be at all surprised at it working if you got it to someone with any kind of chest or lesser injury quickly. But on a shot through the eye, either it's more magical than I'd like to suspend disbelief for, or Noah was very, very lucky in it happening not to pass through the most critical brain areas. Then again, people have live with rods blown through their brain, so it is technically possible.

As for the virus... some viruses are awfully good at picking up genetic mutations. And these powers *are* genetic mutations. So, yeah, "go go super immortal virus" seems like a pretty strong possibility for future suckage.

Yeah, Claire and Peter coming back from the dead makes sense, at least within the context. You can imagine since they naturally regenerate that their body goes into stasis or something if it can't actually regenerate. But other people? Who've been shot through the head and were probably dead for at _least_ an hour or two? Can you take a bag of their blood and wander through a graveyard raising a "zombie" army?

Hmmm, i didn't remember Bob saying Adam did it.
