Ok this weeks episode of Heroes was a huge episode, so lets just get right to it. Peter and Nathan are discussing his "missing carnival weekend" and discover that Angela has covered for him by saying he was on vacation. The Haitian, and I'm not calling him by his name, shows up and explains to Peter that Angela wants her mind wiped but tells him that he needs to make that decision after he sees a certain storage shed. When Nathan and Peter arrive they discover Nathans "real" body. Nathan touches it which causes the remembrance ability to act up in Nathan and he discovers Parkman might be hiding something. The Brothers Petrelli go to the Hospital where Matt is being held where, after Peter does his healing, Matt reveals that Nathan is actually in Sylars body. Sylar takes over Matt and tries to convince Nathan to touch him. After a scuffle Sylar leaves Matt's body and Peter and Nathan leave. Peter takes Nathan/Sylar's ability so he can keep up with him and follow him. Nathan discusses with Peter about how he doesn't exist, it is only Sylar with a compilation of memories under a layer of skin. My big question is where is Sylar? I mean did he go into his body or is he somewhere else. Plus what ability does Peter have now, just flying or is he an Empath again? Just a few questions I thought of.
I do have to say, I'm happy to see the Petrelli brothers working together again. Most times throughout the series they're at ends with each other. Seeing them team up is something i willing welcome. Now I also with what happened to Sylar? For someone who wanted his body back SO badly, he's not really showing it. After being in Parkman for God knows how long, I would definitely want to take my body out for a good fly and kill.
Next we saw the events of Mohinder that unfolded nine weeks ago. As he was going through his father's old Coyote Sands footage, he discovered that a boy named Samuel that was born in Coyote Sands increases his ability a thousand-fold when he is gathered around many people with abilities. This explains why Samuel is after an ever growing Family! Mohinder creates a makeshift compass, as we have seen before in this season, which leads him to the carnival. He meets Joseph who explains his brothers situation and tells him to leave and destroy the evidence of Samuel at Coyote Sands. Before he can do this, Hiro steps in to save the footage and puts a bullet-proof vest on him to keep Mohinder alive. After Samuel's attack, Hiro explains that he must use the footage to save Charlie. Mohinder disagrees which makes Hiro put him in an asylum so he can stay quiet until the present day.
When I first watched the episode and based off the tapes, I thought that anyone with an ability could multiple his/her power. Knowing that it was just Samuel definitely made me realize at least some of his evil plan. More family. More Power. Simple concept for a villain if you think about it. The only part that had me confused on the whole Hiro story was with him and Mohinder. If Hiro replaced Mohinder for a patient in an asylum, what did he do with the patient? I just imagine some mentally unstable person being sent free to run the streets he's been taken off of.
Now we got through the big part of the episode, we might as well cover Tracy and Claire. Tracy comes to Claire(or well really HRG) with a problem of her ability. After Tracy accidentally freezes Claire( which she quickly recuperates from), they have a talk and realize that Tracy's problems are psychological. The girls discuss the problems about their life and Tracy decides to join the Carnival after all.
I feel like if there was a clip of the week to show, it'd be when Noah finally gets home while the girls are talking and it shows Claire's frozen (or thawing) foot. I just thought to myself Noah's probably thinking something like, "Get the thawing foot off the table! I didn't raise you in a barn Claire!"
So all I can say is that we got a good episode here. There were a lot of answers in these scenes which made this great, besides the Claire/Tracy storyline. One complaint I have is the trailer from last week was a little too thorough which lessened the impact of the episode. Otherwise we have a top notch Heroes episode, a must watch indeed.
I agree. The clips from the trailer left us with too much and that can be bad sometimes. Luckily, they still left the big explosions in the story hidden till the episode aired. I just can't wait for next week when we see who's really in control - Nathan or Sylar.
See Ya & Til Next Time,
