Heroes: "Hiros" Mini-Review  

Another great episode does much justice. Characters coming together, some not realizing how vital it is of their encounters, and revelations of their powers and what their mission is when they do all join together to save Claire, and save the world.

I'm sketchy about Claire's father. Apparently he's the bad guy, however his little "pep talk" in the hospital room with the quarterback was almost priceless that I actually cheered him on. Though who wouldn't at that point? Evil as he is, at this moment he's trying to keep Claire safe. Although I'm wondering why, and what possible motive he has since she's the main priority for him. No, I have not read spoilers for future episodes. I just know what I've seen in previews and the vague descriptions in the episode synopsises. I'm also wondering about the lackey of our main nemesis, and what he really does. Erase memories? Creepy.

Hiro is, again, too adorable. Still loving the Terminator!Hiro from the future, wielding one bitching katana. His message to Peter, and Peter connecting the dots. Much love for that. Oh, and Hiro with the "waffles" part? Too cute.

Adoring Peter, too. Especially his now revealed ability of absorbing the powers of others around him, much like Rogue in X-Men without the dangerous effects. That entire scene with Issac was superb, with his eyes glowing smoky white and being in a trancelike state. Issac's expression was great, too. Overall, the artwork used for the comic-like paintings are phenomenal.

Simone wasn't in this episode, which I'm fortunate of. I'm wondering what her reaction will be when she finds out that both Isaac and Peter believe in painting the future, and saving the world. She'll think they're batshit insane, obviously. But I'm waiting for that moment, that one shining moment, that either Isaac or Peter or someone else shows her that what they're saying is true. Or she'll wind up dead, which will provide more motive for both to avenger her death by beating the Big Bads. Again, I haven't read spoilers; it's just a theory.

Poor Matt. Loves his wife, tries to make good, but things always end up going wrong and he starts going crazy. Well, hearing people's thoughts will tend to do that to you.

Love Niki, love the fact that she's trying to figure things out. Though next week's episode is going to be quite interesting, with her meeting her other half. And her criminally-committed husband we'll all recognize as Forrest from the Initative of the fourth season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, in case anyone wants a little piece of triva.

That ending, with Peter following the future!Hiro's orders about the phone call --- what a way to end an episode! I was like, "What?! No, no, no, it can't end there! Give us more, gorrammit!" But alas, I'll have to wait one more week until the next episode.

I am loving the ultimate tagline: Save the cheerleader, save the world.

Agree with a lot of what you said. I'm also having second thoughts about Claire's dad, because he was amazingly sympathetic, not just the way he spoke to Brody, but the way he reacted when Claire told him. was it him who was lying on the ground with his head lopped off in the rest of the picture which Peter drew?

Matt's thing is really reminding me of the Buffy episode "earshit" where she gets the power to hear peoples' thought and it soon drives her mad. Matt needs to get ahold of his power and attempt to control it.

I dislike SImone, too. I thik Mohinder is enough of a sceptic, i dont thijnk Simone is neccessary. also, we've now seen that isaac and peter arent letting her get in the way of them finding out what the HELL is going on, so thats good. I loved Issac saying "We have to save her" towards the end. These cliffhangers are killing me!

sorry about the long comment, almost as long as your post! lol!

I really couldn't tell, but there's something in my mind that it's actually Claire. I think Peter finished the painting telling them of the future that might happen if they don't succeed in saving her. For Claire's father, well, he can be sympathetic while still evil (like when Joss Whedon said about the Operative in Serenity, he can be nurturing, calm and collected even when brutally killing someone.) I also have theories about his intention with Claire, and what else he knows might be stored for her, and possibly what threat could be awaiting her.

Matt's thing is really reminding me of the Buffy episode "earshit" where she gets the power to hear peoples' thought and it soon drives her mad. Matt needs to get ahold of his power and attempt to control it.

(Hee, you said "earshit"! *is twelve*) That's exactly what I was tninking when that scene happened. Matt definitely needs to take hold of his ability, or else not only will he lose his wife but his entire sanity. I thought those scenes with his wife were cute. He was making her happy! If only that could happen in real life...

I'm still perplexed on why Mohinder is still a skeptic, because he believed in finding the truth about what happened to his father and continuing his research. Of course he believes in science and needs physical proof, which I understand, though wasn't he the one that went after Nathan, calling about danger? And now he won't believe Peter when he tries to convince him that he does, indeed, have a power? I'm confused on that part. So, I think maybe Mohinder does believe but needs actual proof before he makes a final decision. Though, the bizarreness of Scyler's apartment should be more than proof for him, wouldn't you think?

Aw, don't worry about long comments! I love long comments, I thrive on long comments. They are of the good.

LOLOL, I didn't realise I'd written earshit! i didn't even check it afterwards!

Hmm... i wonder about what it would be like to read peoples' thoughts. I mean, yes, there's the positive of being able to make everyone happy, but then there's the afct that you'll know EVER SINGLE THING your friends/family/random people are thinking about you. How paranoid would you become? its a scary thought, I don't think I'd take the good with the bad, and if i couls control it, i don't think i'd be able to resist reading everyone's thoughts and then being hurt by what they were thinking.

Yeah, Mohinder's strange. It's like one side of him really wants to beleive that his father was onto something, for the sake of their estranged relationship not being for nothing, but the logical said is telling him its all impossible...

Ooh, good theory about it being Claire, i like that she seems to be a key player in this, as "save the cheerleader, save the world."
