Great pacing, cool twists, and the heroes are finally starting to come together! Did you all love last night's episode? Or was it lacking after all the hype?
I'm pretty content. Just some impressions:
Jessica is a bad ass. If I were that cop to whom Niki is turning herself in? I would be a scared little running man.
LOL--the Haitian got to Zach and Mom and Lil Bro and...not Claire!!! Oh, Horn Rimmed Glasses, you are a tasty piece of work.
Hah--Hiro's sword returns! (May I direct you to my blog of a couple months ago? You know, the one in which I dreamed of Hiro's sword?) And...a dinosaur? Whaaaa's that?
OMG--Hiro gave Isaac the Spock sign and Isaac immediately stops saying Hiro's name with a Japanese accent. Anyone remember that old Saturday Night Live skit where everyone in an office keeps using a Mexican accent whenever they say "taco" or "burrito"? That's Issac--a walking skit.
Who does Horn Rimmed Glasses man report to anyway?
Ack! Eden? What happened there? Why...how...? I thought Sylar didn't have powers in that room, yet he shattered the glass and scooped her right up? I had to have missed something. (Sorry--I was unpacking at the time, though I was trying hard to pay attention. Multitasking: it is the cloth of my life.)
And the ending. Peter. Oh, Peter. First, I thought it was great that he was the Man on Fire, but when I realized that he could explode, I got sad. So very sad. Peter has grown on me, and I'm going to go off on that in a few seconds. But first: did Claire whisper that she was sorry? Did she do something to make Peter into The Flame? Or was she just expressing a basic "I'm sorry" for what was about to happen?
Just a tangent here: some of the hero men are making my hot list.
* Mohinder - hot accent. Clipped British yumminess. I just wish he had a deeper voice, you know?
* Isaac - but only when he's in the shadows. Not so much hotness in the light. That sounds terrible, but what I mean is that he's more mysterious in the dark while wrapped in a blanket. In the light, he's kind of slender and has quite the stubbled baby face. I like Dark Art-eest better.
* Horn Rimmed Glasses - Loved the look on his face after Sylar went all turbo MY-NAME-IS-SYLAR-HEAR-ME-ROAR on him. Horn Rimmed Glasses's response? A quietly mocking smile. Hot. Is it wrong to find Claire's dad on my list?
* Peter- Okay, I'm coming around to little bow-legged Petrelli. At first I thought he and his bangs were a tad foppish, but I realized something about Peter: He's more Superman than the current Clark Kent of SMALLVILLE is. The well-earned iconic "Boy Scout" nickname applies more to earnest and selfless Peter than it does to the exhaustingly whiny Clark Kent (though I'm hoping that'll change this season. But right now it seems that SMALLVILLE is more interested in the Green Arrow and Lex/Lana than developing Clark. sigh).
Anyway, I'm going to miss my HEROES for over a month. Ahhh! I just realized how long that is....
