Heroes: "Unexpected" Episode Reaction  

More explanations with the symbols on the necks, interesting. Although I knew about the character of Hana, I didn't necessarily know about her appearance in the show until recently. Which reminds me that I should probably read up on the graphic novel online to catch up what the rest of fandom already knows. So far, I'm liking her. She's swift, fiesty, and mysterious, with a cool ability too. But that's only by first impressions from tonight's introduction to her, there could be more to her than meets the eye. And knowing this show, anything's possible.

I wanna give Claire a hug, and after tonight's episode along with the previous one she deserves some form and genuine comfort. The poor girl. The amount of emotion in this episode, and I'm betting she waited a long time to lash out, and I really don't blame her. She's gone through so much and without much to trust anybody. When she cried at the hospital it wasn't just pitiful tears, it was tears of frustration and anger towards her father and towards everything that's been happenig to her. She definitely needs answers, and I'm betting as we've seen the previews for the next episode she's about to get some real actual answers. For real, this time. She damn well deserves it, too.

That being said, Hayden Panettiere better win an Emmy for her performance. Seriously.

So there's was Lyle in this episode, as I was starting to wonder where he'd been hiding since the hiatus ended, but no Zach. That sucks. I love Zach.

Finally, Matt's storyline gets bumped into a direction of actual action! Teaming up with radioactive guy and Hana. Now there's something really unexpected, hence the title of the episode. That ending scene when they broke into the Bennet household, that was a beautiful moment. Things are taking off real fast, and I like that!

No Jessica/Niki tonight. Boo. Well, actually it makes sense due to the previous episode it was more focusing on Jessica and her mission of assassination. So it evens things out.

Simone is dead, and I can hear the cheers of joy from all over fandom. Okay, I admit while I didn't necessarily care for Simone and thought she was pointless and rather annoying at times, but I am disappointed about her demise. Especially since it was a the hands of one of the men who loved her, in an accidental incident all due to selfishness and jealousy. Huh. Ironic, isn't it? I should've guessed it would've been her, because so far Kring hasn't killed off any major characters. Yet, anyway. There's no real guessing here, and nobody's safe.

Peter focusing and using certain powers was definitely cool, particularly when he flew away from HRG and the Haitian carrying Claude. It was like Superman! Whee! But awww, poor Claude. I hope he returns (love you, Christopher Eccleston!), and I'm wondering what HRG wants with him. Or with the others he "marked" as well, and why they're all tracking devices for him, and everything else in between that we have yet to know. Which will be revealed, hopefully, in the next episode.

Oh, Mohinder. How dense can you be? That is Sylar you're talking to! Sylar, dude, you're so evil is mesmerizing and freaky and cool. But how come you didn't realize that amount of pain you'd have to endure by stealing that power? It's the intensity of hearing, didn't you know. Also, if Mohinder can't catch on to the suspciousness of Sylar's scheme he's either really dense and too trustworthy for his own good, or Sylar is way better at acting than he led on in the beginning.

Hiro and Ando. Awww, Hiro don't leave Ando behind! I'm glad that he finally realizes that his mission isn't the same as what he originally thought, which was almost like a comic book. I guess after the devastation of Charlie that realization hit him hard. But, yay his powers returned! I guess really wishing of not wanting it to end like that made his power return. That basically is the power of the mind, not the sword that he believes will give him the strength of his powers back. It's funny that neither Hiro nor Ando saw what happened. I think Ando will reconsider and stay with Hiro because, while in a dangerous situation they are friends and partners. And they stick together. Because that's how they roll, dudes.

Dude, I really liked the filming style in the episode. The faded focus with the camera effects were interesting, and added to the mystery of what was happening. Very artsy without being over-the-top, and me likey. Lots.

Yep, that pretty much about sums it all up. I'll give a proper episodic review soon. I might also write some for the episodes I missed reviewing for, though all those will probably be in one gigantic Heroes review post rather than separate entries. Ah, it just keeps getting better and better. I love this show, have I mentioned that already?

Also, I'm very intrigued by The Black Donnellys from its previews. I don't know if I should get into another fandom, since I have enough obsessions already, but it's gotten me interested. Anybody else know anything about this show? Is it worth looking into?

Best part of episode: Stan Lee cameo! Made me squee!

It just keeps getting better and better, I tell you. I have yet to have an episode to disappoint me; some haven't been completely action-packed as I would've liked, but what draws me in is the development of character storylines and answers to some questions, followed by more questions to be answered. It's just an amazing show altogether, which is probably why it's my favoritest addiction of fandoms right now. Hee.

It seems to have spectralbovine's vote and a few people on my flist as well. It sounds interesting, but I hear the music got crappily changed from the original pilot to the one that's going to air next Monday.

This episode of Heroes was really awesome.

I'll definitely keep a look out for it. After seeing the previews and reading up on background info of its premise, it certainly has caught my interest.

Heroes was totally amazing. God, I love that show.

yes, the Black Donnelly's is definitely worth it, I'm going to be watching even though I have too many fandoms ;) The style of shooting, the music and the characters are all VERY cool

Cool. I'll place it on my list of recommended shows. I've heard several people talk about, and it certainly looks interesting. Though I also have too many fandoms to keep track of myself, so even if I don't get completely obsessed at first I'll still keep it in mind to watch for later. :)

Hell yes. She has beyond impressed me with her portrayal of Claire.
Renée: Heroes. Claire Bennet.rogueslayer452 on February 21st, 2007 12:50 am (UTC)
For real. Hayden is definitely a young talented actress on the rise to greatness with her career, and I'll be pissed if she doesn't get at least nominated for an Emmy.

lgkdgd I want Claude back:'( Peter needs him! He might go bad. He won't. He's far too pretty and has bangs. Sylar is pretty, to some people, but lacks bangs, hence evil.

Sorry I haven't commented in ages, babexxx

Claude better return, which I have no doubt he will. He's just frightened that HRG found him. But the Claude and Peter scenes are always fun (especially since Claude smacks him around with tough love, hee). He's like, needed on the show, for entertainment purposes and to keep Peter stable since he still has a lot to learn. Dude, it looks like Peter is beginning to turn to the Dark Side. The power voice effect during his confrontation with Isaac? Awesome! But yeah, too pretty to become evil although who says evil can't be pretty. I'm actually starting to like Sylar, even though I know I'm not supposed to. There's something about him, I don't know what.

Sorry I haven't commented in ages, babexxx

It's alright. Everybody gets caught up in their own lives, there's no need to apologize for that. :)
