Stings like a bitch, don't it?  
This is a little bit of a lengthy-thing, but I just have to get this off my chest. If I offended anybody, I'm sorry but these are my opinions.


Regarding Mohinder and his actions from last night, it's pretty understandable taken from his perspective and from the knowledge he has from both sides, and given his position what he did was pretty realistic to how anyone in that kind of situation would've acted. Bennet was going to shoot Bob, mercilessly and in cold-blood. Hell, Bennet was going to shoot Mohinder earlier before West stopped him probably the only time I liked West. As mentioned before Mohinder and Bennet have never been on the same page, with their alliance I knew that something was going to go wrong down the line. Whether it was being found out or their partnership departing.

Bennet hasn't exactly been one to have a golden halo above his head this season either, though. He hasn't been truthful or completely honest with either Mohinder or his family, particularly Claire which if only he'd revealed the truth of his plans and the paintings Claire wouldn't have been so reckless and throwing herself in the arms of the flying stalker-boy. As mentioned before in my review, Bennet could've been more helpful to Mohinder than just packaging him up and shipping him off to the Company without any backup or anything like that; all they relied on were phone calls and whenever Mohinder needed to desperately speak with him Bennet wasn't available or busy doing his own stuff. So he literally pushing Mohinder into the crocodile pit and fend for himself, which wasn't smart because Mohinder is very impressionable and does want to help others, not just take down the organization for the protection of the Bennet family. Mohinder sees the potential of helping others with abilities and preventing the virus from mutating and spreading, and if that means joining the Company to serve that greater, more important purpose than so be it.

Remember folks, Mohinder is just a simple guy thrown into an extraordinarily impossible situation here; Bennet is the one with years of training to handle the Company, Mohinder isn't. Mohinder may be intelligent and smart, but not knowledgeable in the tactics and the history the Company and their passed members have gone through. Bennet was only middle-management, after all, and probably doesn't know much about the Original Twelve and if he did, he'd been holding out on Mohinder for the sake of protecting his family.

So I don't think what Mohinder did was stupid -- just impulsive, which is what Mohinder does in an emergency. He acts impulsively, and in this case he acted that way because Bennet was going to murder someone in cold-blood and therefore he panicked. Keep in mind that both Mohinder and Bennet have their clear motives for doing what they believe is for the greater cause, but I think Mohinder's is the more reasonable one. Bennet only wants to protect his family, which is nice and all, the whole "me and mine" attitude and shows his loyalty to being a family man and all that. But realistically, that's impossible. They even said it within the show, they'll never stop running. Now Bennet was going to kill Bob because he's the boss of the organization -- kill him, the Company is history, no more running or hiding. That's Bennet's logic. Mohinder, on the other hand, is thinking about all the lives he can save by creating a vaccine from Claire's blood and curing the virus before it mutates again and starts to spread. That's more realistic than trying to become a normal family again which, after all the Bennet's have gone through they'll never be normal or live happily after all this.

Mohinder is doing this for the bigger picture whereas Bennet is doing it for his own personal reasons. Obviously he doesn't want anyone else caught by the Company, but Mohinder is thinking of the overall consequences if they don't treat the virus immediately. Now, why couldn't he have mentioned this to Bennet in the car, saying that the stakes have been risen higher due to the mutation of the virus? I don't know, but he wasn't thinking clearly, just acting impulsively and wanting to get the whole deal done as quickly as possible.

So why am I writing about this? Because I am sick and tired of everyone calling Mohinder stupid or idiotic or bashing him for what he does; it's like he's literally the punching bag that Elle mentioned last night, people like using him as a scapegoat for making simple mistakes that anyone of us could make if we were placed in such a situation.

I mean, take into consideration what's happened to him since the start of the premiere. Given all that from the shortened period of the Heroes timeline, especially with everything he'd endured from last season into account, Mohinder's dealt with more than anyone and he's been dealing with it pretty damn well considering. Meeting all these people, not knowing which side to trust, not knowing who to trust or who to rely on. Literally, Mohinder is clearly alone in this, which is very depressing. I mean, hell, in the end of this episode Mohinder was staring at the gun remorsefully, regretting the act. It's not like he wanted to kill Bennet. Again, it was an impulsive move that anyone stuck in a situation would've done, and the poor boy's feeling awful because of it. In the end, from my observation: Mohinder is not stupid. Naive, too trusting and impressionable at times? Sure, but not stupid. He's made mistakes, and this mistake is probably going to weigh heavy on his conscience for a long, long time. It's what makes him human and different from other fictional characters that can do something and shake it off later, like Bennet for example. Another reason why I love him; he's crossed that line he'd been known to never cross before, which adds another development for his character. He's going to have to deal with it, to feel the guilt and remorse.

Obviously I understand people's frustrations, and I can't say I blame them for reacting in such a way. Fandom loves HRG, and if anyone shoots or messes with HRG they'll be on the Fandom's Blacklist, therefore Mohinder shooting HRG has them automatically jumping/bashing on him for it. I admit I was shocked that Mohinder actually shot Bennet, but with everything that's been happening and the context of the situation I understand and forgive him for it. Others may not for obvious reasons, but I do.

Oh Mohinder, you're like my Sam Winchester, Lee Adama, and Karl Agathon all wrapped into one, and I love you for it.

Thank you for this! I'll admit to being miffed at Mohinder last night but you reminded me about everything he's gone through this season, which definitely puts his actions in perspective.

One thing that has been bugging me lately is how everyone expects everyone else to trust them and their motives WITHOUT TELLING THEM EVERYTHING. If only HRG had been honest with his family since the start! If only Mohinder had told HRG about the virus! If only Claire had told West her dad was HRG, maybe he wouldn't have been around as much :)
Renéerogueslayer452 on November 20th, 2007 09:11 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I felt like Mohinder needed some loving after this episode, which was shocking but his character's been through so much in a small amount of time that sometimes people forget where he stands right now. Confused, lost, uncertain about where to turn and ultimately, alone.

Oh, I totally agree. If only everyone on the show were openly honest about everything then nothing this drastic would've happened. But then again, we wouldn't have a well-rounded, deeply complex show to discuss about, so heh. Though I kept on mentally nudging Mohinder to tell HRG about the mutated virus, because perhaps that would've changed his mind. Oh Heroes, you and all your secrets and half-truths.

You stole the thoughts right out of my head. I was really mad at first but I think that has to do with how dramatic the scene was, seeing HRG that way in front of his daughter. But I remembered how unsure Mohinder was the whole time this was going on. He seemed as if he had no idea where to place he's trust and I feel for him. Some of the fans need to place things into the right context and think about the characters motives before shouting "crucify mohinder!". I'm actually more mad at Matt right now, tbh.

Exactly!

Some of the fans need to place things into the right context and think about the characters motives before shouting "crucify mohinder!".

Which I think is the biggest problem in fandom. It was a shocking scene, and I literally was all "OMG NO MO DON'T", but if you take a step back and recollect everything that's been going on his actions make sense. As an audience we see everything that's happening with all the storylines and characters. Mohinder doesn't have that luxury, in fact he's been kept in the dark about a lot of things and people have to take that into consideration. He was lost, unsure and even afterwards he's still unsure, with added depression and guilt to boot. It's the human reaction/decision to it that makes me ache for him.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I'm glad you liked it. I admit I wrote this late last night after reading so many reactions to the episode, I just was letting out everything I'd been feeling for Mohinder so I wasn't sure how coherent it was going to sound. Heh. :)
Polo Molo: Heroes: Mohinder trainheartslartibartfast on November 20th, 2007 05:56 pm (UTC)
Bennet has been annoying me constantly this season - not because I don't enjoy his character or his storyline (I do, I love it) but because he's just become such a twat.

Pardon my French.

So I didn't shed a tear for him, guessed he wouldn't be gone permanently anyway.

I agree with what you say about Mohinder. I think it's horrible, awful, dreadful that he did what he did but that's only because I hate that he had to make a decision like that. I don't like what he did as if it were a real thing, not because it was badly written or out of character - it aches and hurts that my poor MoMo has to go through that, but I could see why it happened, and it was believable.

Ah well. Hopefully Sylar will be giving him lots of cuddles and smexings to make up for it.

Editing to add... WEST FTW! \o/ *is unpopular* XD

Renée: Mohinder. Hot in Haiti.rogueslayer452 on November 20th, 2007 09:22 pm (UTC)
I agree about Bennet. Honestly I understand his need to protect his family, but it's impossible with the logic he's using. He can't protect them forever, continue running, hiding. It's almost like their situation in the 5YG universe. You can't outrun a powerful organization like that, even if he'd killed Bob right then there would be others wanting them from elsewhere. Also he'd been thinking about mostly himself this whole season: worrying about the events leading up to his predicted death, not even noticing that his actions were leading towards that from happening, not preventing it.

I mean I love HRG, I really do and I understand his fear. But I think he should've explained everything to his family and to Mohinder before making the moves himself. So really, it was all about him.

Mohinder's in a difficult place right now, even after shooting HRG he's questioning whether the decision to team up with either side was the right one. I mean, you can't blame him. Neither HRG nor the Company have been straightforward in their intentions, filled with lies and half-truths and vague answers. He has no where to turn, and seeing him in this place does make me feel for him. It was believable what he did, in fact everything he's been going through is believable and I am glad that his character has been so fleshed out this season.

Dude, yes! "Welcome home, Dr. Suresh" OMG!

Here via ninth_wonders several weeks ago and I read your reviews every week. ^_^

I don't think there could be any better way to express why I love Mohinder as you put it in this post. There have been moments in this season, especially last season when I wanted to slap Mohinder. Then again, I've wanted to slap all of the characters at one point or another. However, the bashing and hatred for him now is something I really don't understand.

people like using him as a scapegoat for making simple mistakes that anyone of us could make if we were placed in such a situation

Exactly. How is it so difficult for people to step back and really think about why Mohinder is doing what he is doing? I admit I probably would have made almost the same decisions if I was in his situation.

Bennet hasn't exactly been one to have a golden halo above his head this season either, though.

There really is a bias for Bennet in the fandom. He's such a wonderfully written character and Jack Coleman is terrific portraying him, but some people seem to be blinded by the stupid decisions he's made himself by how awesome he is. It's like he can't do wrong to them or if he does something horrible, he is forgiven. I still love Bennet nonetheless.
Renée: Ruby. Deep-fried crack.rogueslayer452 on November 21st, 2007 03:13 am (UTC)
First off, thank you for the kind words and that you've enjoyed my reviews from week to week. It's going to be sad when the finale arrives though, no more Heroes to squee and write about. :(

There definitely is a massive bias towards Bennet, and while I understand their love for the man, as I also love him and think he's made of awesome, but he's made plenty of mistakes much, much worse than Mohinder has done. He's skilled and trained by the Company, even using their tactics against them along with killing others without hesitation. And yet it is forgiven because to fandom, Bennet is the Man Of Awesome Beyond All Awesome. Whereas with Mohinder, he does one thing it's "damn you Mo, you're dead to me!" from everyone. I'm like, where's the logic in that? Just because HRG is morally gray does that mean that Mohinder can't cross that line, even if it was a deicision made in the moment? Seriously.

This is actually a great character development for Mohinder, I think. We've seen him save countless of innocent lives (most which haven't even been recognized by fandom), he's essentially the most ethical and human person within the show, and this mistake will haunt him forever. I like that dark direction for his character, adds the more layers to him.

Mohinder is thinking of the overall consequences if they don't treat the virus immediately.

Of course. I think his shooting Bennet was pretty understandable. I get your point about fandom loving Bennet and so possibly being mad at Mohinder for this but that is pretty sad. There has been so much seriously badness this season, why get upset over something that makes some sense. It isn't even like it is the first time Mohinder's had a gun on Bennet, ready to kill. *points to icon* He doesn't like the idea of killing Bennet (see: most of this episode) but he is willing to do what he feels needs to be done. Just like Bennet would.
Renéerogueslayer452 on November 21st, 2007 09:52 am (UTC)

Precisely. It makes sense, but I feel that people in fandom are blinded by their unconditional love for HRG that they can't see what's been happening in this situation. Mohinder did what he needed to do and did what he thought was the right decision, and you're right, it wasn't the first time that they'd had guns pointed at each other. In the end, while I loved how they partnered up it was doomed to not last long, which is sad.

But I do love the dynamic between them, how opposite but similar they are in regards to their intentions behind their actions. The only difference is their methods for accomplishing them and their obvious trust issues. Mohinder's more with the moral issues now but still.
Autumn: where the slash lives {heroes}penelopeblack on November 21st, 2007 09:14 am (UTC)
Just coming into the Heroes fandom, I've honestly been shocked by how much love people have for HRG. I don't see that much lovable about him, honestly. :P So the only reason I was upset that Mohinder actually shot him was that he killed any chance of Claire/Mohinder at the same time. ;)
Renéerogueslayer452 on November 21st, 2007 09:36 am (UTC)
Well, truth be told going from the first season with thinking he was a bad guy, then undecided that he either was or wasn't, and then realizing that he was just morally gray to protecting Claire, I guess it's all about the fleshed out character for him which made him awesome. But now it seems the roles have reversed this season; Mohinder is getting more character development than HRG is. HRG is out for himself and his family while Mohinder is fending for himself in the tank of sharks (a.k.a. The Company) and questioning his ethical responsibilities.

But it's also interesting how fandom loves the moral grayness of HRG, but once Mohinder had stepped over that line in a siege of panic under the circumstances, people bash on him. It's kind of hypocritical, don'tcha think?

Awww, I know. I would've loved to have seen a Mohinder/Claire interaction scene.
L.A.: heroesfrenchroast on November 22nd, 2007 06:17 am (UTC)
I think it's because we *expect* moral grayness from Noah, but not from Mohinder. It's kind of like what Bob said about Mohinder's moral compass--he's known for being the one to take the high road, no matter what(even if in 5YG, he took it at the very last minute). And when he seemingly didn't this one time...BAM. Everyone jumps on him.

I think it's because we want Mohinder to keep from getting blood on his hands, really. Ethically challenging as this season has been for him so far, he'd kept his hands clean until now, and it's kind of comforting to have a character like that. Noah gets away with the moral greyness because of his history with the Company, because we sort of know they twisted him a bit. Mohinder doesn't get to be forgiven for moral greyness because he hardly has any history with the Company, though we can obviously see now that it's twisting him, too.

I think in this case, he saw that Noah was just going to keep killing, and killing, and killing until really, there was no one left to kill, and it was sort of a "sacrifice one life, save many" impulse decision. And, you know, it probably didn't help that just a little while before, Mohinder was nearly on the receiving end of Noah's planned killing. I think he learned a lesson from making that kind of impulse call. The question is, where does he go from here?

Also, I'd like to point out that really, so long as the weapon Mohinder's using is a gun...no one's going to get hurt. Mohinder's had a gun in his hand for Sylar, Matt/Noah, and now Noah again, and every time...everyone comes out okay.

What I *really* wish we'd seen in the episode prior was just *ONE* scene with Mohinder and Noah planning to team up. I mean, we're just expected to accept it, just like that? Cut some damned Peter/Nathan OMGILOVEMYBROTHERSOGODDAMNMUCH time and get us some *important* background info. Or, you know, hell, cut the damn third Nikki personna(b/c the mirror trick got old about three episodes into the first season). Considering how important their teaming up was for this episode, it seems very remiss to not have even had a nod to it in the "Four Months Ago" episode.

It really is comforting, and it's actually very realistic that despite Mohinder's good intentions on trying to do the right thing that he'll eventually mess up or make a sacrifice as big as this that'll screw with his head. He is very ethical and the moral compass of everything happening around him, but this tragedy and getting blood on his hands is exactly what should happen to dig deeper into his character. It's good to see that in the writing of his characterization that he isn't a moral saint, but he's just a human being like anyone else even in desperate times like this.

Sometimes there are characters in this show that can do horrible things but not get punished for them, or have no recollection of these deeds and continue with their lives like nothing happened. Then you have Mohinder, who is dealing with these things daily and his character is changing because of it. I love that, it's refreshing.

I think he learned a lesson from making that kind of impulse call. The question is, where does he go from here?

Exactly, which I why I love that they're taking his character in this dark direction. I mean, compare him now to the Mohinder back in S1, he's changed and grown, for better or for worse, and I like seeing this. He's going to have to do major questioning of where he stands, where he should go. I like his personal battle this season, with trust and moral issues. Should be interesting when they explore his character based on this incident.

Also, I'd like to point out that really, so long as the weapon Mohinder's using is a gun...no one's going to get hurt. Mohinder's had a gun in his hand for Sylar, Matt/Noah, and now Noah again, and every time...everyone comes out okay.

Hmmm, that's very interesting. Although with this incident Mohinder had actually committed the crime and saw the blood spill on his hands, and he feels responsible and doesn't know that HRG is alive thus feels guilty because of it unless it was the Company that brought him back rather than Adam, which would make sense. So in his mind, HRG is dead unless that theory is proven true. But I like that; Mohinder with a gun, while hot, won't hurt anyone (intentionally).

Oh, I so totally agree with you. I still want to know the motive behind their partnership, their common alliance with each other and how they managed to form up their plan -- and what, exactly, was their plan to begin with. I could've done without the Niki and the Hererra twins family backstories (which makes no sense to the bigger picture). Mohinder/Bennet's partnership seemed A LOT more important, and would've given more backstory and insight to how/when/why they teamed up and had this betrayal to each other and lack of trust seems to effect them deeply. In fact, I wonder if they'll EVER shed light to how they got together, because inquiring minds want to know.

Renéerogueslayer452 on November 22nd, 2007 03:08 am (UTC)
Thank you so much for the compliment and taking the time to read this. Also, I don't mind at all! Please, pimp away. I feel like Mohinder needs some loving and want to spread that love, or just an understanding of his motives and what he's been going through this season.

Everyone has said what I wanted to say. Mind if I link this in my journal? It is calm, logical and very necessary because my wanking about the Heroes fandom brings all the boys the yard. Right.
Renée: Mohinder. Hot in Haiti.rogueslayer452 on November 22nd, 2007 06:52 am (UTC)
Absolutely, go right ahead! I felt it was necessary to point these things out, because fandom has been slightly (and understatement for sure) harsh on poor Mohinder, and he needs some loving.
Jenni: heroes 6onlyechoes on November 22nd, 2007 05:25 pm (UTC)
Exactly. At first I didn't know what to think because I was shocked and really confused, but when you think about the big picture and everything Mohinder's gone through, it all makes so much sense and makes me love Mohinder even more. Fandom pisses me off sometimes.

Anyway just wanted to say that I agree with just about everything you said.
Renée: Mohinder. Hot in Haiti.rogueslayer452 on November 23rd, 2007 11:47 pm (UTC)
Fandom can be pretty biased sometimes. Not to say that I'm not being biased right now with my Mohinder-loving rant/essay, but by looking at the bigger picture and acknowledging the mistakes of a character and figuring out the cause-and-effect of the situation, it really adds more depth and understanding of what occurred rather than just oversimplifying it.

I'm really glad you enjoyed it. I felt it had to be written after fandom exploded from the episode, and I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels the same way.

Woah. That's totally the hottest mix.
:]] And SO true.

Seriously, though, your rant is made of awesome. I love how you defended Mo and I most definitely agree with those bolded words. Mohinder is not stupid. I can't believe the way some of my friends reacted to this episode as if it was all his fault. I feel so sorry for the poor dear, especially when he looked so sad at the end of the episode.

I think he needs major hugs. And Sylar.
XDD I'm just waiting for that shmexing next episode.

Thanks so much for posting teh awesomeness.

Love,
Ex
Renée: Mohinder. Science.rogueslayer452 on November 23rd, 2007 11:38 pm (UTC)
Hee, awesome combination of characters isn't it? ;D

Mohinder is certainly not at fault here. Actually, retrospectively, at least everyone had made faults and mistakes that led up to that moment. Like it or not it was inevitable. It's because Mohinder committed the one act that many fans prayed would not happen, and thus he's getting crucified for it, and I think that's unfair to him because he's lost and torn between two sides; dedication versus obligation. And no matter what he does he'll never catch a break and he'll never win, which makes me ache for the poor boy. *huggles broken/conflicted Momo*

He does need plenty of hugs and love, I agree. Also, in terms of his character, Mohinder really needs someone who he can trust and rely on without using him in the process. That next episode I hope will provide the Mylar reunion in its full graciousness.

No, thank you for taking the time to read and enjoy it. We need more Mo lovin' here. :)
jirucloud on November 25th, 2007 05:54 am (UTC)
I completely agree with you on all of this. At first I was like 'FTW? MOHINDER WHAT?' but, it really is all understandable... I hope everyone grows to luff him again... especially since HRG is already back, like, what? <10 minutes later? *huggles*
Renée: Mohinder/Molly. Love.rogueslayer452 on November 25th, 2007 07:36 am (UTC)
I actually think this is a great character development for him. Obviously horrible for Mohinder, as he has to live with the guilt and regret, but it also makes him more human. Humans make mistakes, do things that we never thought we were capable of and until this point we knew that Mohinder could never have committed such an act. Now he has, and it really sets another layer to his character and I think that's great. But it's also something I like seeing because I can understand where he's coming from, he had no other option and choose the necessary choice. Was it horrible? Absolutely, but in the heat of the moment what could he have possibly have done?

In fact, everyone at this point in the show has done something they've regretted which led them to this moment. Everyone is hitting that dark place, Mohinder is no exception. This is why I love Heroes, it really shows the cause-and-effect of everyone's actions and how one can prevent it from happening...and not to mention that not everything is what it seems.

I also really hope the love returns. I haven't stopped loving him, obviously, because I understand the overall motives for his actions. *hugs Mohinder*

AMEN!! THANK YOU.
Very coherent and you pretty much voiced everything I feel about Mohinder and the general attitude of the fandom towards him as well..(I mean, it's ok for Bennet to kill a person based on his logic,goals and general air of badass but not Mohinder just because it doesn't suit you guys!?)(or something like that.)
Renée: Mohinder. Science.rogueslayer452 on November 28th, 2007 08:07 am (UTC)
I mean, it's ok for Bennet to kill a person based on his logic,goals and general air of badass but not Mohinder just because it doesn't suit you guys!?

That's basically the biased attitude fandom has, and it does piss me off. Even in the most recent episode where Mohinder had resurrected Bennet (which was AWESOME, I love crafty!Mohinder) people aren't giving Mohinder the credit he deserves. Mohinder's doing things for the greater bigger purpose, while Bennet had been more focused on HIS life and HIS family. It's awesome that he loves and will do whatever it takes to protect them, but there's larger things at stake here then that, and Mohinder seems to know this objective by helping others.

As far as I'm concerned, Mohinder should be praised for dealing with everything he's been thrown at this season because anyone else would've had a complete breakdown by now.

Hee, I was starting to get off onto another mini-rant there so yeah. But thank you for taking the time to read this. I'm actually very surprised it came out as coherent as it did because honestly, I wrote that WAY late into the night and I think my brain was fried after that episode. So yay, people understood what I was trying to say! :D Mohinder needs more love in fandom.
