Heroes: Four Months Later
I sat and watched Heroes today with my 2-day-old son (he loved it, I'm sure, even if he slept through half of it) and I thought it was an awesome return to the show, especially since we left on such a crappy note back in May. It felt like I was watching a movie, with almost no commercials, a trailer to open the season (hello, Sylar!), and the Mohinder voiceover.

Questions:
-How did Nathan survive the blast? When he looked in the mirror, was that his real face looking back at us and he's somehow covering it, or was that how Peter looked when he last saw him, and it's haunting him? (maybe he didn't know Peter could heal?)
-Why did Parkman's wife leave him?
-Who killed Hiro's dad? I thought it was Peter at first, but then he was in the box.
-What is Maya's power/curse? Does she shoot bullets or cause people to die spontaneously?
-How lucid is Claire's mom? Does she remember everything or is she still kind of loopy? (The way she talks to Mr. Muggles, maybe she's always loopy and it has nothing to do with what hubby did to her.)
-Who sent the pics to Hiro's dad and Granny Petrelli?
-What is the significance of the eclipse at the beginning of the season?
-How did the guy in Claire's class know she was one of them? Does he work for The Company?
-Is Molly getting images of Sylar or someone else when she's drawing those things?
-Who created the myth of Takezo Kensei? Was it Kensei himself much later? Or perhaps Hiro (literally rewriting history??)
-Noah's loser manager has a giant scar across his forehead; was he attacked by Sylar?
-what role will the swordsmith's daughter eventually play in all of this?
-how did Peter end up in a crate in Ireland with 3 guys with terrible phony Irish accents? Why can't he remember anything?

Interesting:
-According to Hiro's dad, Linderman really is dead, so that solves that one (I think).
-Nikessica wasn't in the episode, which made it doubly awesome.

My wacky theory is that Nathan saw Peter's face because he's soaked up his memories in the explosion.

Crappy Irish accents, of the type to make Angel proud.

Crappy British accent, but I gather he was on Alias and has a following.

I think the sister has the power of Ebola.

Mohinder + Parkman 4eva!

Nathon presumable flew away just before Peter exploded. I'm pretty sure that it was Peter's face that Nathan saw in the mirror.

She is host to a deadly virus acording to the webcomic.

She knew what was going on when we last saw in Season One. She probably still does.

-What is the significance of the eclipse at the beginning of the season?

The commentaries said that the first eclipse was symbolic of the interconectedness of the "heroes", and the second one was to bring the season back full circle.

-How did the guy in Claire's class know she was one of them? Does he work for The Company?

I think "heroes" can all subconsciously sense each other. That is why they have so many random encounters. Sylar even mentions that he can sense the other "heroes" several time during season one.

-Is Molly getting images of Sylar or someone else when she's drawing those things?

I'm pretty sure that's the new bigbad that was alluded to at the end of last season. The one who was worse than Sylar and could see her when she thought about him.

that's what i forgot to mention in my other comment about the ep -- the craptastic "oirish" accents ... the lucky charms leprechaun has a more realistic sounding brogue than those three twits. ugh. (my father, a born-and-bred dubliner, literally cringed and walked out of the room at that point -- he'd been disliking the entire ep, but that was the capper for him, hahahaha!)

i, too, thought it was peter's face nathan saw in the mirror and that he saw it out of guilt/it was haunting him.

dear PTB: please kill molly. quickly. but first, please mute her so i don't have to listen to that whingy, whiny voice any more. or, if that's too harsh (personally, i think not ...), give the "actress" who plays her some acting lessons on subtlety and understatement, stat. she may mean to play her like an old soul, but she comes across as a young brat. while we're at it, could i get a 2-for-1 deal, and you can throw in clare's new "love interest" (because you so know that's where this is going) -- the smug, smarmy, creepy guy with the bad shaggy hair? as someone else quite rightly said, she could do better. MUCH better. ugh.

I love this show! I thought the first ep was pretty good and I'm terribly curious about Nathan's scars. I think Molly is seeing a person that we've never met before because last season she found Sylar for them and didn't flinch doing it. And of course I'm dying to know what has happened to Peter!

I had a dream last night that Matt and Peter were revealed to be cousins.

They were also on the Lost island, so take it as you will :-)
