It took for-freaking-ever, but we’re finally starting to get some clarity on who’s who and what’s what. What will be interesting in the coming weeks will be to see how the stories intersect.
Alejandro down, Maya to go. Sylar’s one mean mofo, that’s for sure. Definitely a little scary. And definitely damaged in the cabeza.
I think I mentioned this earlier, but Adam is taking advantage of Peter’s naivete (which was a little bit of a problem last season also). I think, given what Hiro saw in 1977 and what Adam muttered after he killed Victoria, his agenda is clear. The question will be, will Peter figure it out in time? And will Hiro help him come around, or will they remain enemies? Next week is shaping up to be awesome.
The rest of the story-lines seem to be a little irrelevant. If they intersect in some way (like last season’s finale) then they’llbe cool. But until then, Nikki, Micah and their NOLA family are just tedious.
The previews for next week mention two heroes will fall. I wouldn’t get too worried, because they call bad guys “heroes” also, so Adam can easily be one of them. I mean, come on, they even told us this week how he can die: he just needs his head blown off, or I presume, severed with a samurai sword. Here’s one man’s theory that Peter will realize just in time, and tell Hiro that the only way to kill him is to sever his head, and Hiro will. No question in my mind that the writers/producers will allow Hiro to avenge his father. He seems to be their favorite hero.
One scary thought: can you imagine the havoc Sylar could wreak with Hiro’s power?
