DISCLAIMER: HEROES IS ANOTHER ONE OF MY FAVORITE SHOWS, SO IN TURN THERE WILL BE HEROES POST IN MY BLOG. ONCE AGAIN, THERE WILL BE SPOILERS. IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THE EPISODE AND DONT WANT IT RUINED DO NOT READ THIS POST.
last week ended with the eclipse coming to an end and powers being returned to the heroes. this episode begins with hiro takes clair to the moment when a baby claire is given left in the care of noah. at this point in the past we find out that hiro’s mother is dying and controls the catalyst, she also has the ability to heal. Hiro figures the reason he was told to go back to this moment was to have his mother heal him. Claire also has her ideas as to why she was taken to this period in time.
sylar flew off the hinge. back in present day he is seen standing over elle’s dead body and it looks to me like he is back to his old ways. he contacts arthur petrelli and tells him he is aware he was lied to about being the son of arthur and that he is going to kill a bunch more people with powers. he then goes to a human lie detector and kills her. as he is standing over her 3 of her coworkers come in and he kills them.
angela, peter and the hatian have a meeting where angela tells peter he must take the hatian and kill arthur. at first peter is reluctant but after angela reminds him that arthur wouldn’t hesitate to kill him or nathan peter becomes okay with the idea. the plan is to have peter shoot arthur while the hatian keeps arthur from using his powers. on the way to pinehurst the hatian fears peter will not be able to kill arthur but peter assures him when the time comes he will be ready and willing to kill his father.
back in the past claire poses as the niece of the bennet’s neighbors. she gets into their apartment with her mom where she is confronted by noah who knows she is not the niece of the people next door. she doesn’t tell him who she is but she does tell him not to answer the call from kieto nakamura. by doing this claire saves herself from becoming the catalyst. as this is happening hiro has approached his mother and tells her who he is. she is glad to see her son as she never thought she would see him as an adult. he explains to her that his memory was taken and in his head he remains a 10 year old boy. she heals him with a kiss to the forehead and he tells her that he mastered time travel. he then tells her to give him the catalyst ensuring her he is old enough and responsible enough to handle ‘having the light’. she does so and dies right after. he has the catalyst for about 30 seconds before he loses it and his powers. as he comes to meet claire on the roof where they arrived he explains to her that he now is the catalyst, however arthur is standing right behind him and swiftly alleviates him of the catalyst and his power. he then flings him off the roof but hiro catches on to a flag pole. arthur then sends claire off with a message for angela, he wins.
at pinehurst arthur brings the catalyst to suresh and adds it to the formula. arthur notices peter coming in on the security camera and goes to meet him. as he walks in peter pulls the gun out and points it at arthur. thinking he has all his powers arthur motions for the gun but nothing happens. que the stand off. peter telling his father he must kill him and his father saying he wont do it. the hatian is having trouble holding arthurs powers off and as peter pulls the trigger the bullet stops right in front of arthur’s face. enter sylar, he stopped the bullet. now with the ability to read lies sylar asks arthur if he is indeed his father. arthur’s answer of yes is quickly decifered as a lie by sylar who lets the bullet go right into arthur’s head. the king is dead, or so they want us to believe. im not too sure. the episode ends with a scene of suresh injecting a soldier with the ‘perfected’ formula. after convulsing a bit the soldier pulls a chair which was bolted to the ground out of the floor and throws it through a piece of glass. The formula works?? interesting, looking forward seeing where this goes.. in heroes fashion… TO BE CONTINUED…
