I guess I allowed all the Internet hype to pump me up about last night's show. What a mistake, because I feel somehow underwhelmed.
Crazy, huh? Because so much happened--however, it didn't seem to happen until the last half. I kept hoping they'd just stick with Peter and Claire and the whole "homecoming" storyline. Every time they flashed to Highly Dysfunctional Hero Family, I got a little restless.
Still--great payoffs near the end! At first, Sylar seemed to resemble Peter Petrelli, but that was just a trick of light, I'm sure. And Sylar going after Claire was pretty damn exciting. But I wonder when we're going to find out how saving "the cheerleader" will result in saving the world. Also, I thought Homecoming might be the night when Peter received that scar Hiro referred to.
Obviously, there's a lot left to come. I only wish we'd get more of the heroes together because the show flies when that happens.
In the meantime, I'm off to edit THE ULTIMATE BITE. Three more chapters left, friends. I'm getting end-of-the-book restless here. Next up for me? Enjoying the holidays, working on a couple of proposals and a short vampire story for Amazon Shorts, and dealing with PR for the February release of NIGHT RISING....
