Sorry about not being able to do the usual HEROES thing on Monday night, you all. I'll be back next week to do a regular recap, but I figured that I'm so late with this one that posting it now would be the height of irrelevency.
Even so, I'll just chime in that I liked this last episode more than most recent ones, and I think it's because they focused on only a few characters and got back to what I liked about this series in the first place: the personal struggle of "regular" people who discover that they're not so regular after all. Once again, HRG and Claire provided a lot of heart, especially when Claire told her dad that the Vortex guy was a lot like her...except he didn't have HRG there to help out. Aw!
Also, within five seconds of David Anders reappearing, I was already loving him above all others. His line readings are awesome--funny, clever, and so very appealing. He gives Adam that cocky swagger of a less swishy Captain Jack Sparrow, and he is so naughty that I find myself chuckling every time he gets that I'm-off-to-work-over-Hiro gleam in his eyes.
Next we'll see if Ando's dead (Yeah, right.) and what kind of trouble Papa Petrelli is bound to get the planet into....
