Wow, it just gets better and better!! This episode ROCKED. Hands down the best ep yet. There were more gasps and “NO!” and “AH!” moments in this episode than any one yet. The new shapeshifter chick, Candice, is a complete bitch, and I love to hate her already. Claire constantly asking to go home seemed a little short-sighted on her part, considering she knows her dad had to lose his memory to do all of this.
-Mrs. Bennet actually remembering everything and telling Bennet. Go Mrs. Bennet! At first I couldn’t figure out why Bennet would have had SO much of his memory removed that he would actually be hunting down Claire and the Haitian, but his plan with Mrs. Bennet was genius.
-Mohinder drugging Sylar. YEAH!!
-Simone showing up at Isaac’s apartment. Then turning into Candice.
-Ando as the security guard!
-Sylar stopping the bullet in mid-air… I was beginning to wonder why he wasn’t using his mind powers against Mohinder.
-Mrs. Bennet actually being… Candice!! ACK! (though I should have noticed her cellphone ring was different)
-Mohinder on the ceiling!!
-Sylar grabbing Peter and beginning to cut his head off!!!
-THE SHOW ENDING RIGHT THERE!!!!!!!
-the Previously on Heroes voiceover done by Hiro in Japanese, with Japanese subtitles
-Mrs. Bennet’s cellphone ring, hahahahahahaha!
-Nathan putting his hand over Hiro’s mouth before he can yell FLYING MAN!
-the look on the bouncer’s face when Nathan shows up with Hiro.
-Mohinder holding the tuning fork to Sylar’s ear!
-Ian Gomez as the museum curator (hmm… another Lost crossover??)
-“This painting is ripped. And repaired with scotch tape.”
-Claire meeting Granny (talk about being frightened by your grandma immediately)
-Malcolm McDowell as Linderman!! Awesome. I was waiting for him to dance around like Alex and talk about doing some ultraviolence on Nathan (they could have at least painted big eyelashes around his right eye)
-for all of Mohinder’s brains, why is he so stupid? And why didn’t Sylar detect Mohinder’s heartbeat increasing as he brought him the Chai tea? There’s no way Mohinder was able to stay super calm while doing that.
-what kind of silly program runs through all of the swords in its system like a DNA program on a police computer? Unless there were 10,000 swords in Linderman’s possession, the computer should have immediately just shown the location of the Kensei sword.
-don’t the writers know that the audience is kind of aware that when a character says, “oh my god, I have ALL THE ANSWERS right here! This is everything, the key to the universe!” that they probably won’t last much longer?
-what will happen to Matt? Was he prepared to lie about Bennet, since he’s siding with him at this point?
-why does Canada always play a role in exiled heroes? Eden’s body was found there, and Claire’s ticket was for Canada. Despite what Americans might think, Canada is NOT a place filled with refugee heroes. Some of my closest friends have no powers.
-how did Bennet honestly think his house – which has been reduced to cinders – was damaged in a FLOOD??
-what did Candice do with Mrs. Bennet? (Now we know why she took such an interest in Mrs. Bennet’s hair)
-what’s with her Catholic schoolgirl look? What’s with her bossing around Bennet? Doesn’t he have some sort of seniority over her?
-where is Isaac going to go?
-How did Niki manage to get away from Jessica and physically put Nathan’s photo on DL’s pillow?
-how did Niki take over Jessica to warn Nathan?
-how did Candice know about Mr. Muggles being at a dog hospital? When Bennet first walks in Mrs. Bennet is brushing her hair and says that the hotel is letting her bring him into the room.
-how far into the future have Ando and Hiro gone?
-so who exactly is Linderman, and how does he know everything? Does he have powers?
-Why did Isaac’s pictures make it look like Mohinder was the one who was going to lose the top of his skull? (the pictures had a guy with a beard and mustache, and curly black hair) Would Sylar really suck the brain of someone who didn’t possess any powers?
-Did Sylar manage to remove Peter’s head? Or can Peter instantly heal the way Claire does? Or can Peter suck the powers from Sylar to stay safe? It will be interesting to see these guys go toe to toe, because I don’t think Sylar will be able to deskullify Peter so easily.
Next week: NO NEW EPISODE. In fact, no new Heroes until April 23rd. Waaaaaah!
Side note: Ali Larter (Nikessica) appeared at WonderCon recently, and apparently some stupid fanboy got up and was totally rude to her for her character. Look, I’m not a huge fan of the character, but attacking the ACTRESS like this? Come ON. There was a rundown of the attack on Ain’t It Cool News (where you can also read a section on Joel Silver being attacked for removing Joss Whedon from Wonder Woman):
As the actors took to the stage, it was inevitable that Larter would be asked HEROES questions, but the very first question drew the ire of the entire room. This fat guy said that he and his friends “love the show, but think that yours is the worst character. [Lots of boos] Even though you're a so-so actress [More boos], is there a possibility that you can ask them to kill your character off [The folks next to me call to have this guy castrated].” To her credit, Ali took it in stride and just told him that she’s glad he enjoys the show. Once that asshole was gone, she was asked the difference between shooting film vs. tv. She said how a film allows you to work on one character from start-to-finish, but in television, you’re getting a new script every week for someone who’s constantly evolving. She mentioned that she was going to be working on an unamed film in the show's hiatus.
It just comes off as one of those moments in most fan conventions where people just want to throw something at the loser hogging the mike.
