Ah, things finally starting to happen…
Working late Monday meant I had to watch this Tusday night. Tuesday afternoon, I get this email from Dan: “WHOA. The show is definitively BACK.”
Some things I liked about this: they managed to introduce a new character with some mystery (Electro-girl, who’s father works for the Company….would that be “Bob”?) and someone discovered powers without taking 4 weeks to figure out what’s going on (thankfully, Micah was there to be her guide). I also loved that she’s being really smart about it: what would I do if I could replicate anything I saw on TV? Watch Kung Fu movies! I wonder if she watched Superman she’d be able to fly?
Anyway, Peter’s finally getting back into it, which will be awesome, and with that cute Irish chick, too. Shame her brother had to die, I liked him, especially since he was very welcoming to Peter and didn’t think he was a freak. At least someone’s reaction is “dude that’s awesome” instead of “what’s going on? what’s happening to me/you?” God, Nikki can be such a whiny bitch.
I know I’ve mentioned this, but Mohinder and Parkman had better be a gay couple, or that whole story line is just creepy.
Parkman’s father clearly has some ability to get into people’s minds and mess around, more than just mind-reading, which also gives him the ability to block them from using their mind-power on him. So Parkman can’t read his mind, and he can get into Molly when she’s finding him. Query how Parkman eventually snapped out of it, though?
Question for the week: is Parkman’s father the one killing the old people or not? I say he is, and that putting the symbol on his own picture was part of the “con” he pulled on Matt. But the “I have something to show you” line…was that just a ploy to get him into the room, or was he actually showing him the next step in what he could do with his powers (assuming he wasn’t lying that his powers are the same as Matt’s, just taken farther…which could also have been part of the con). Anway, that look on his face as he was leaving the apartment (after locking Nathan and Matt in their nightmares) was scary.
And what, exactly, does Montreal have to do with this?
