Allright! Something finally happened!
As we suspected, it was the Haitian who erased Peter’s memory, and he was able to get it back by healing his brain. I actually love that hearing his brother’s name was what triggered it all for him. That was great. I almost forgot about Peter’s bangs. Thank god they cut those off.
The Peter/Adam dynamic is an interesting one. Bob wants us to think that Adam is the bad guy, but we know the Company isn’t exactly clean. Adam seems a little ambiguous. Peter, as always, a little naive. I wonder if Adam means “Save the World” in the same way that Linderman meant it, by killing a lot of people, especially since he knows he can’t die.
Nikki/Jessica/Gina is still irrititating, but you gotta feel for her, the way DL died was brutal, especially after surviving the gunshot from Linderman.
I was wrong about something (though I would have preferred to have been right). I mentioned to my wife that I thought Nathan would be healed by Peter, who had absorbed that power from Linderman, and would be reminded that he could use it (assuming there was some point that Peter met Linderman, which isn’t far fetched). I don’t like the whole “my blood has healing powers thing” though clearly this is why Claire is going to be important all over again. Does that mean that Nathan has the healing power now, too? Or does it wear off?
Speaking of Peter meeting Linderman, Peter’s mother, father, Kaito Nakamura, Linderman and Charles Deveaux all had powers. Peter met (or should have met) all of them. I want to know what those powers are, and I want Peter to start using them. I will not let this go. (Side question: does Peter have the same powers as Parkman, now that Parkman’s expanded them a little? Should be, right. He just needs Parkman to tell him.)
There was something from last week that I liked that I forgot to mention: when Peter’s mother, in June 2008, tells him: “you are the most powerful of all of us.” I wonder when she came to that realization.
I’m not sure why we needed “back story” to tell us what we already knew: Maya and Alejandro are annoying, and she kills people by crying brown goo. What a waste of time that was.
Finally, maybe it’s just me, but there was something extremely sexy about Elle in this episode.
