Well altogether I thought this episode was a bit lower par than the previous. It had more "Oh Man!" moments than "4 Months Later" did, but I think as an entire episode, 4 months takes it.
I felt that once again there was alot of Claire in it, but whenever Noah shows up makes the scene much better. I felt that the other characters need to be talked about more.
There was alot more Maya y Alejandro, and I thought it was cool to see her power in action. It was sure creepy.
But the best moment of the episode IMO was when Angela Petrelli was being interrogated, and when she was subsequently attacked. "GET OUT OF MY HEAD!" was great, and I was legitimately scared during the attack scene.
I'm getting suspicions that Wes is sort of a bad guy. and kind of a weird stalker. But more with that later.
I was SO looking forward to seeing Kensei's power. To me, it was a letdown. I'm getting annoyed of the repeated powers. Flight with Wes and now healing again? I mean, can they really not think of other powers?
I thought that the Haitian/HRG reunited scene was great as well.
West isn't a stalker, at least not in the criminal sense. He was attracted to Clarie ever since she showed up at school, and there's a reason for that, of course.
I was a little disgruntled about repeating powers too, but then I rationalized that it's no different than two different people having blue eyes, genetically speaking. I don't really have a problem, but I was surprised that Takezo could heal. I'm still operating under the assumption that they won't double up, so apparently I need to stop that
I think we're going to be following these four storylines for a few more episodes, and then they'll add more and intertwine them as necessary. I'm liking the more focused approach this season: watching old episodes, you realize how pell-mell it used to be.
Well...it seems that way. He was floating outside of her bedroom window. She never told him where she lived right? He was watching her in her bedroom. And he showed up outside of her living room window.
Personally, as great as the opening episode of the season was, I liked this one much better.
Peter's scenes were fantastic, especially when he destroyed those two guys in the bar. Electromagnetivity, telekinesis, regeneration, and enhanced strength, all in one go! Peter is the man.
The Haitian wiping Mohinder was an intriguing scene. One moment we're in Haiti, the next we're in the States again. I think the mind-wipe, due to the reunion towards the end, suggests that it was planned.
Hiro's scenes of ass-kickery was amazing. He didn't even move...well, at least that's how it appeared to them. He even suggested the name of the battle, as he's probably heard of it through the stories and wanted to make sure it stayed the same.
This episode had a lot of WTF?! moments, as in "Okay, thaaat was creepy..." It mostly involved the attack on Angela and Maya y Alejandro's freakout.
Another thing I thought neat; Ando did not know Matt, as Hiro had teleported him to Japan, and Matt did not know Nathan from last season's finale, but from an earlier episode, as he was down and dying. Just thought that it was neat that not all the characters from last season know each other.
Good to see Claire taking such interest in her power, rather than just going "Neat! I can't get hurt!"
Is anyone else disappointed that other languages besides Japanese don't get subtitled as Japanese does? I thought it was a neat distinguishing thing for Heroes, but then those not-too-pretty yellow subtitles...
The thing that caught that made me think "Thats how the "boogeyman" will die" was when the "healer" told Maya that her "sickness" could kill the devil himself(something along those lines). The virus that keeps infecting the "supers" remind of the Legacy Virus from the X-men. Well 80% of the powers remind me of the X-men.
