Sorry for this being so late. Thanks for your patience. I might be crazy, but it felt longer than usual.

Welcome to all of the new participants! I have always said that this community would be nothing without you brilliant and witty people!

Enjoy!



Curbing Evangelicals since 2008: Tracey & Nathan

Ooooooo, now Nathan’s doing the voiceovers! He muses on if he’s an angel or a monster (the fangirls are unanimous on this one, dear: you are a godsend)
- aunt_zelda

Tracey wore her pearls to bed. Now she’s gonna have weird looking marks around her neck, like a vampire with bad aim and dentures went after her. Hee.
- aunt_zelda

[Nathan] offers some milk (what is it with all the MILK in this season?
Are cows sponsoring the show or something?) to Linderman
- aunt_zelda

Whooo … *reels* Angela Petrelli … apologizing? Angela Petrelli? Asking for help? Angela Petrelli … providing answers? *checks Hell to see if Tracey froze it over*
- aunt_zelda

Nathan proposes that he and Tracey go a-questing to ‘Dr. Suresh.’ Guys, he’s not home now. You can leave a message with Mr. Hyde …Nathan actually refers to Mohinder as ‘harmless.’ Of course, this cuts to a scene in which Mr. Lizard is walling Maya up with goo.
- aunt_zelda

Nathan, don't drink out of the bottle. You're not at home. It's gross. Seriously. Angela Petrelli did not raise her sons to drink out of the bottle.
- cupcakery

And, Nathan? Tracy needing your help does not mean "heal her with the magical light of your penis," despite what the fanfic tropes say.
- cupcakery

No, Nathan, he does not understand all of this genetic stuff. That much is obvious. Mendel is rolling in his grave and about to be resurrected by Ned to come and kick his ass. (Speaking of which, where is my Pushing Daisies/Heroes cross-over fic in which Aunts Lily & Vivian had another sister who ran away to New York at a young age and married some watchmaker named Gray? Huh? Huh? Do I have to write it myself?)
- cupcakery

Nathan: "Touched by God, I gotta believe he has a purpose for my life."
Which is obviously completely forgetting about your kids and cheating on your wife with Tracy.
- canadian_turtle

And speaking of fucking things up can Nathan's life get any worse. Not only is his father fucking with his head, his brother is in a coma...again and he never had powers in the first place. I just want to snuggle the man senseless but unfortunately there are laws against that dammit.
- godiloveslash

And what's with all the milk drinking lately? Is Heroes sponsored by the American Dairy Council? Is this the new version of the post coital smoke?
- alicebluegown16

Calmly listening to all theories even if you don't agree. Sharing the relevant information you have immediately without holding back the really important stuff that might bite you in the ass later. Accepting new perspectives without flying off the handle and storming off in a fit of pique. Sigh. Tracy, I fear you're not long for this show and that makes me sad. You should start a Too Fucking Smart for This Shit Club with Ando and Daphne.
- alicebluegown16

"You know what would me make me happy? Answers." Oh Nathan, how I understand you.
- schtroumph_c

Linderman is a metatron? If he drops trou, I'm so outta here.
- ladymalchav

Did Nathan just get out of the shower? His hair looks wet. Maybe that’s why it was his monologue; because one must always monologue in the shower.
- brighteyed_jill

In this universe, people measure their awesomeness by how many pearl necklaces they wear: Tracy--1, Angela--27.
- brighteyed_jill

Sorry, Nate, it looks like "God" didn't make you this way, after all.
- cookie_simone

NATHAN: LET'S START WITH MY ANGER AT YOU. DO YOU HAVE TO SLEEP WITH EVERY INCARNATION OF ALI LARTER? REALLY? (Also, where are your KIDS? Remember, the two you had in the first season? Jerk.)
- chibirhm

I don't care how crappy you thought meeting the in-laws went for you, because can we take a minute to appreciate Tracey's introduction to the Petrellis? She goes to this creepy company and Nathan is all over his passed-out(hot) brother like they are lovers (which they probably are), and then Nathan is like "Oh, see psycho-bitch in the corner? That's my mom. Who my hot brother just tried to kill." And then his mom is like "Hi, I know you", because it turns out she was behind genetically engineering you so that you killed what's-his-face the reporter. And the best part is, you haven't even met Nathan's children, one of whom includes a cranky teenager with a death wish, and then there's his other brother the just-reformed serial murderer who eats people's brains, and oh yeah, there's the dad he thinks is dead but really is a psychotic mastermind creating an evil army to take over the world while he's in a coma.
Don't worry, family reunions will be a blast.
- chibirhm

I just love how Nathan is all, "I've seen God! I'm a changed man! God has a plan for my life!" yet he hops into the sack with Tracy at the first opportunity. Yeah, Nathan, remember that Bible you were reading a couple episodes ago? You might want to check out what it has to say about extramarital sex.
- fifmeister

I like how they've been together ONE night and are already acting like a married couple. XP
- red_planet31

Nathan: "I wanted to tell the world, I even called a press conference."
Tracy: "What happened?"
Nathan: My brother from the future thought it would be a fun idea to shoot me!
- ilikethequiet



Only Peter could generate this many comments for an episode spent in a coma

Luckily, as Peter beings to slice open his mother’s skull (because

there’s nothing like a little matricide to top off … uh, brother-cide … after you inadvertently caused some infanticide) Sylar snaps his neck back into place (EEEEEW, we did not need to see that!) and knocks Peter out.
- aunt_zelda

Oh, my world has turned upside-down. Gabriel is all "MOMMY ARE YOU OKAY" and Peter is all ANGRYFACE and fandom is all *FLIPS HANDS AROUND* and Angela's all AUGH THIS KNOWING THE FUTURE THING SUCKS and Gabriel's arms are all LOOK AT ME and I'm all *LOOKS AT GABRIEL'S ARMS*.
- cupcakery

Anyway, some cool things I noted:
Peter shirtless, Sylar in a wifebeater. Seriously, it's like they took a poll of "What's your favorite look?" and slapped them all in this episode.
- mystery_sock

I'm thrilled to see which one of his beloved family members he's going to try to kill next, aren't you?
- top_hatted_girl

WTF PETER, STOP KILLING EVERYONE IN YOUR FAMILY. He's killed Nathan (a few times). Now he's killed Sylar (didn't take, but he did go though the motions of killing him). And now he's tried to Paul Krendler Mama Petrelli. I'm sure we're meant to believe that this is all ~*~*~*~The Hunger~*~*~*~ and he's just in the grip of having Sylar's power, but.. hasn't he been around him for THREE seasons now? Shouldn't he have killed everyone in his family at least twice each now?
- vejiicakes

As for the rest of the characters: Nathan is created and feels emo-pants about it, Tracy is blah blah I DON'T CARE, Linderman really is dead, Matt's dad really isn't dead, Adam has ridiculous hair and even more ridiculous lines and an even more ridiculous plot. There is a lack of Peter, which is just generally a good thing and the whole epidoes becomes 100x smarter.
- its_not_wrong

Also, you need to learn to control your spittle when you speak. It's distracting me from your face, and that's hard to do.
- chibirhm

What’s this? So little of Peter? When was the last time that happened? Proof that I still love him despite the ever-steeper ascent into idiocy is that I felt the lack of him in this episode
- starvinbohemian

Okay, Peter's neck-and-neck with Mohinder in the "needs rehab" department. Or just lots and lots of drugs. I wouldn't mind it so much if he were just kept out of commission for the rest of the volume, but I'm sure he'll be back to do more damage and be all RAAAA PETE SMASH.
- angary



Moms and Pops Petrelli

Augh, paralysis. Fucked up, fucked up, fucked up. Although it appears that Angela can still move her eyes in some limited range. She can be like that guy who dictated a book blinking in Morse code. She just needs to take some lessons from Spy!Daddy and Sydney Bristow. (Mama Petrelli's maiden name is Waldorf, y/mfy?)
- cupcakery

Ma Perelli having visons of everyone's impending death is like nathan dying. they happen all the time.
- deepwonderment

Nathan: "What are you hiding mom?" Does he mean besides a brainstealing half-brother for one (and if she did sleep around as much as rumored, a timestopping Japanese half-brother and perhaps even a mindblocking Haitian half-brother)?
- canadian_turtle

Plus, the serial killer was actually adopted and is the secret brother of the protagonist! Niki is dead but her twin is risen! The father thought to have committed suicide is alive and controlling events from a hospital bed! It's a soap opera. It's a little much.
- ibroketuesday

Tonight we found out who is the mysterious man pulling the strings. Who is it controlling the destiny of the character's we have come to love?
Who is so dangerous that even Angela Petrelli fears him? The anticipation is so intense! I can't stand it! I must know! It's--it's--it's Arthur Petrelli. And we've known this for almost a week. Because the evil promo monkeys gave it away. Assclowns.
- alicebluegown16

Divided the formula and hid it? You could have, you know, destroyed it, if you wanted to? There's this blond bint in Texas who practically has lighters for fingers, I'm sure she would have been happy to. Well, at least someone seems to be getting through to Mama Petrelli
- ladymalchav

Where did he even pick that up? I kind of hope it was an unusually fussy Angela Petrelli--she picked out his suit and combed back his hair and fixed his tie and was like, "You're going to be on the job with Mister Bennet again, so I want you to be on your best behavior! Now take this apple, I worry you're not eating enough." (I guess if my previously mild, favorite son just tried to take a gander at me brains, I'd totally be doting on the psychopathic, homicidal one too.)
- vejiicakes

It really is becoming the Petrelli show isn't it? So they replaced the narrator with a Petrelli. And (seemingly at least) killed off two of the non-Petrellis. And then it turns out the big bad? Is a new Petrelii, who has been "dead" since before season one.
- alias_sqbr

I'm conflicted on how I should feel about her being paralyzed, but I do hope that she'll get unfrozen soon so that she can get back to her ass-kicking status. No one should EVER stop her from doing that!
- angary

Aww, Angela. I felt bad for her. One of her sons is all "I HATE YOU" and another one tries to cut her head open. But at least her serial killer son still loves her!
...Dysfunctional, thy name is Petrelli.
- fifmeister



Battle of the Moms: Sandra & Meredith

Rut-row! Everyone’s favorite sitcom: My Two Mommies! Sandra is flipping through files feverishly (yay for alliteration!) and informs Meredith (who’s wearing a tank-top clearly intended to mark her as a ‘skank’)
- aunt_zelda

[Sandra] could drive, or distract, or whip out that gun she threatened Bob with, or produce her invisible son as a human shield! I hope that Meredith at least brought Mr. Muggles as ‘Backup’ (and maybe picked up Elle along the way and brought her home for tea! I mean, Elementals have to stick together, right?)
- aunt_zelda

Eric Doyle is grosser than gross, and gives the fine art of puppeteering a bad name. On the other hand, great premise for a supervillain! And the guy who plays him is David H Lawrence THE SEVENTEENTH. Is he really the seventeenth David H Lawrence in his family? Because that would be fuckin' sweet.
- mystery_sock

Meredith: "Can you do this?"
Sandra: "No, but I can train dogs to bite you in your sleep, biyotch."
- tiptoe39

No, Sandra can't turn herself into the Human Torch. But looky here, Ms.Smuggy McJudgy Pants. Fat lot of good that little gimmick did for you! You knew what this guy Doyle was capable of and you still rushed out to meet him? Bennet, this is the woman you want taking care of your Claire Bear? So far she's water boarded your daughter, been rude to your wife, and gotten her idiot self taken captive. Mr. Muggles would be a better choice. Oh, but he's not available. He's hanging with Ando, Tracy, and Daphne at the I'm Too Fucking Smart for This Shit clubhouse.
- alicebluegown16

In the dueling banjos of motherhood, I'll take Sandra and her awesome waffle making ability over Meredith any day of the week. She may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but she's good people. And there's not much of that on this show.
- alicebluegown16

"You don't want to know what he can do." Last time they said that, we had Canary Jesse. I'm waiting to see before being scared.
- schtroumph_c

Meredith dear, a palm full of flames against a mind-control guy? It's clear where Claire gets her danger sense genes. As a matter of fact, she shares them with her father (Mohinder, he's harmless!).
- jaune_chat

I don't like Claire's mom. She's a bit of a one-trick-pony. You know, one of these days, if she's not careful showing off, she's gonna burn the house dow- oh, right.
- ladymalchav

People need to stop saying, “You don’t want to know.” That’s code for, “The writers haven’t decided.”
- brighteyed_jill

Meredith just flames on whenever she darn well feels like it.
- ilikethequiet



All your Vortex belong to us: Claire & Stephen Canfield

We segway into a scene in which the Monster of the Week (tee hee) exposiates his family troubles via a phone conversation, then creates a Time Vortex that looks a helluva a lot like the one in the credits of Doctor Who but smaller and grayer.
- aunt_zelda

Seeing as HRG’s ‘talks’ usually end up with someone pulling a gun on someone else and mostly involve bullets in heads, I’m not too keen on this idea. But Claire said ‘Peachy’ and Sylar’s eyebrows are back, so who cares?
- aunt_zelda

But poor vortex guy or as I like to call him sometimes hadron collider guy.
- foxsyd

I think that several people on this show right now would be better off if they spend a time-out in a vortex. Like certain idiot so-called geneticists. Now, what kind of vortices are these? Black holes? That's what they look like. Oh, Claire, it's never that easy. But, if you just step right through that one there, you'll find yourself in a place that looks like coral with a man who may have really big brown hair, pretty blonde hair, or something else. There may be some other people in there. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.
- cupcakery

Be thankful, Claire. You may not be able to die, but in space, no one can hear you angst.
- cupcakery

And [lie] right in front of her too, bad bad daddy. No wonder Claire turns to her screwed up uncles and bio daddy for snuggles.
- godiloveslash

Noah: "Freeze, scum!"
Claire: "Wait, Dad! In five minutes of conversation I've learned his true character better than you in all your years of experience ever could!"
Vortex Dude: "Oh shit, there's a fully dressed kitchen table in here that I completely forgot to vortex away! I'll never sell the house as unfurnished unless I get rid of it!"
Claire: "Why is Sylar here? Dad, I hate you! Eeek! I'm being sucked in!"
Sylar: "Take my hand!"
Claire: "I still hate you but I am grateful, and somewhat aroused, because I always get turned on by uncles that I don't know yet are my uncles!"
- tiptoe39

"I don't have a partner. Because I'm a moron who came here totally unprepared and all of my plans to take you in will of course be thrown out the window the second you tell me some sob story I can emotionally relate to. Because haven't you heard? It's all about me. I will believe that you have the best intentions. That has no possibility of blowing up in my face, right? After all, I haven't been lied to time and time again by everyone I've cared about."
- alicebluegown16

It's sure a jolly good thing that Vortex Boy takes the moral high ground when threatened with death. Hey Bennett, want to know how Future!Claire become such an unfeeling badass? This is how. Because she saw you willing to sacrifice an innocent man for her safety. Kind of breeds a "it's all for me" mentality that ain't too healthy. You gave your girl issues.
- jaune_chat

Though any time [Sylar] gets near Claire I am skeeved beyond all measure. She needs some decent male role models, maybe *tries to think of a man who hasn't used their powers for evil at some point* ...magical african guy can turn out to be an uncle too
- alias_sqbr

Hayden's wig needs its own screen credit.
- shimmeree

Honey, you are such a dimwit. What, exactly, did you plan to do with vortex-guy after you had tasered him? you didn't even bring anything to tie him up with, did you? Not that that would have helped, but it would have shown that you had tried to make a plan.
- egoteprovoco

Claire shows up at black hole dude's house - CLAIRE, I LOVE YOU, BUT WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU GO AFTER THE ONE GUY WHO *CAN* HURT YOU?!
- cookie_simone

Canfield = Miroku of the vortex hands? geeky Inuyasha reference
- starvinbohemian

So in two episodes she goes from "I AM SO TRAUMATIZED BY WHAT HE DID TO ME I MUST HAVE VENGEAAAAANCE" to "OMG WHAT ARE YOU DOING YOU CAN'T KILL HIM!"
- fifmeister

I cracked up at the idea of Claire hunting down super baddies with...a taser. She didn't appear to have any other equipment on her, either, not even a pair of handcuffs. Did she expect the villains to meekly surrender and peacefully go back to Level 5 with just a hit from a taser? I half expected Vortex Guy to bust a gut laughing at her and ask when the Company started hiring little girls to do its dirty work.
- fifmeister



Not Your Normal Partners: Sylar & HRG

Oh what is up with Sylar being a momma's boy and then acting all pleased when Noah gestures to him? Since when does he need validation like he's a freaking parking sticker? You know what I think? I think there was a Mr. Muggles bodyswap scene that got left on the cutting room floor.
- cupcakery

"When I touched your hand, Claire, I felt your pain. As horrible as it sounds, we're connected. I'm the only one who understands you. Also, I'm your uncle. Yes, for serious! I know, I know, you've been through this before. Guy shows up, saves you, turns out you're family. Get used to it. We're everywhere. It was the Company's last brilliant plan, making everyone a Petrelli. Next year you'll learn Parkman's the other, other long lost brother and the mailman is actually your fourth cousin."
- alicebluegown16

The burning question--what kind of music does Sylar listen to? And how many virgins do I have to fling into a volcano to see a HRG/Sylar singing in the car scene?
- alicebluegown16

"Look, I'm sorry I killed that dude. But the urge took over. I'm on the patch, Bennet. It's going to take awhile though. Jeez, don't nag."
- alicebluegown16

If anyone had told me I'd be cheering on Sylar in a fight I wouldn't have believed them, but having it be him vs Peter against Mrs Petrelli makes for a really interesting dynamic.
- alias_sqbr

Bennet: “I wouldn’t send anyone to Level 5 that didn’t belong there. Like your Uncle. In fact, I haven't even noticed that Angela put a shunt in his head. Well, that's a lie. I actually watched her do it. But he probably deserved it. I'm not sure how, as I wasn't in any of those scenes. But probably he's a very bad man.”
- brighteyed_jill

I am so disappointed. You're usually not one of the stupid ones. I know, I know. My standards are too high. I shouldn't expect everyone to remember the first season just because I do. Obviously, Sylar doesn't remember it either, so you lucked out.
- egoteprovoco

I mean, come on, HRG was practically MONOLOGING to Claire about how he wanted to kill Sylar while Sylar was in the car. What, do you want a spandex suit, a sparkly cape, and a fortress of solitude for next episode, Noah? Is that it? Because if it will make your BRAIN start working again, I am willing to shell out for that.
- chibirhm

Before I just found Sylar to be a really worthy opponent who was awesome in the way watching a snake kill a mouse is (not really, but fascinating!). And now this whole snarky-perhaps-not-reformed!company-man is totally my new favorite. I LOVE QUASI-REFORMED VILLIANS THAT NEVER LOSE THEIR EDGE.
- chibirhm

Wouldn't it be awesome if Sylar asks to be Nathan's running mate, and they end up campaigning together? Peter would throw another temper tantrum and trying to kill someone, and he would be sent to his cell in Level 5 for a Time Out.
- angary

LOL, the scene of Claire, Sylar, and HRG coming back home made me think of Marshall during the wine-tasting party in HIMYM. Sylar should have been all, "Not awkward, guys. Not awkward unless we let it be awkward."
- angary

And completely unrelated--a note to whoever's responsible for doing ZQ's hair: when his hair is so slicked down that even the sucking vortex of a black hole barely moves it? You know he's wearing too much hair gel.
- fifmeister



One of Us, One of...The Fly: Mohinder & Maya

He starts to pull his shirt off, which in normal, happier times would be cause for fangirl-celebration, but seeing as he’s developing tectonic plates on his back, it’s cause for fangirl-cringing. When Maya arrives and Mohinder embraces her and her new hairstyle, there’s cause for more fangirl-cringing. She points out one of those flyers that perpetuate TV shows: a person’s missing for like a day and already the family’s putting up perfectly set-up flyers, not the frantic, scotch-taped kind you KNOW that real people would make. At least Jackie Tyler’s flyers looked realistic AND good, but she had a year, so who knows …
- aunt_zelda

Really, Mohinder the lizard in the tank is Mohinder from the ~future~ after the serum has taken its full effect, and was deposited the by someone (pick your time-traveller-poison) so he wouldn't screw shit up in the future.
- cupcakery

I was actually excited when i saw the black goo. I thought she was going to kill Mo and end this story line.And then she controlled it and I was kind of proud of her. I don't understand my brain either
- deepwonderment

I love [Sylar] getting to be the voice of reason now that Mo seems to have turned into a Dexter clone with less class and more webbing.
- godiloveslash

Nathan Narration will become the new Mohinder Narration? I can live with that. Besides, I don't think Mohinder will be able to say much more than BZZZZZ and HELLLLP MEEEEE after a while.
- tiptoe39

MAYA WHY ARE YOU SO STUPID. Seriously, woman, you are one bared midriff away from being The Teenager In The Horror Flick. Oh, well, at least Mohinder has the good sense to make you into a pinup girl. Literally.
- tiptoe39

"Dr. Suresh? Sure I trust him. He's harmless." Ironic segue fairy! Come sit by me and have one of these faboo appletinis.
- alicebluegown16

Show of hands. How many of you thought Mohinder was gonna eat the drug dealer? Would that give him contact high? Tune in next week when Mohinder battles...The Munchies!
- alicebluegown16

Hey, Nathan's stole Mohinder's monologue! Like he doesn't have enough problems?
- schtroumph_c

Meanwhile, Mohinder mourns the loss if his humanity. Or his monologues. Oh, he wants drugs. No, he wants the dealer.
- schtroumph_c

All right, Kringy boy, it's time for some damn explanations.
Why are Mohinder's morals so freaking elastic? How can he condemn one man for murdering his father and in the next minute go all Shelob on our asses and cocoon people to his wall? Did the formula addle his mind, or are you just pissing in the wind and letting consistent characterization go to hell?
Also, ew. It's like Satan's bacne.
- top_hatted_girl

Nathan narrated the opening of this week's episode. I assume that's because Mohinder has gone completely batshit insane and is so busy webbing people to his walls that he can't grace us with his lethargic ramble.
- shockd

Nathan totally knows this doctor that can help the two of them out - the aforementioned Mohinder, who's finished redecorating his place with a drug dealer, his neighbour, and some chick... oh, right. Maya.
- shockd

Mohinder now feels it's ok to glue people to a wall? Ok. He's just not off the rails, he's off the rails, upside down, in a ditch, on fire. He's gone right past creepy and into dangerous territory. And our St. Maya cannot redeem herself, yet again. She pulls the whole "cleverly hiding underneath a table" thing that five-year-olds do in horror films. Five-year-olds! And can't use her powers for a good reason for once. If there was ever a time to black mojo someone out of their misery, it was right then before Mohinder got himself stuck on you.
- jaune_chat

Aww, Nathan stole Momo's microphone. :(
- ladymalchav

LOL you can just see Maya's mental facepalm when she realizes she's with yet another creepy distract-from-the-bodies-by-seducing-you hot guy. I still feel nothing for the character, but dude, I feel so bad for her actress XD
Dania Ramírez: "Um, okay, so when you guys told me I'd get to spend most of my scenes around Sendhil making out, and he'd be getting shirtless, and he'd push me up against the wall and get me sticky, this is not what I was envisioning" ಠ_ಠ
- vejiicakes

Maya continues her new dressing like a slut phase, which is generally what comes after try-to-be-a-nun and break-up-with-a-serial-killer. Luckily, she temporarily overcomes her genre blindness to run away, which is possibly the smartest thing she’s ever done.
- brighteyed_jill

Also, am I the only one who is imagining a blood trail leading all the way from the park to Mohinder's lab? And there are hundreds of people walking by it who don't even notice because they're all stupid. Or maybe that's normal in NYC.
- egoteprovoco

You just found out that Mohinder has been killing people and hanging them up like Christmas decorations and you won't run away or kill him?!?! Does that *look* like the type of behavior that has a reasonable explanation? Maybe Mohinder just stuck you up there so you couldn't get yourself into any more trouble. With intelligence that low, you probably risk death just walking to the corner store.
- egoteprovoco

Oh Mo. Stop eating/raping random people just because you are somehow a bug/vampire/monster/whateverthefuckheis. Go back to being sexy and clueless. Please.
- its_not_wrong

Mohinder buying drugs!! Matt would be so disappointed in him.
- ilikethequiet

OH MOHINDER NO. Please tell me you do not crave human flesh now and also how did you bring that guy all the way home from the park without someone asking 'why are you carrying a dead body behind you?'
- ilikethequiet



Mr. Roboto Walks Tough: Hiro, Ando & Adam

Hiro keeps putting Adam back in the coffin, like giving a naughty kid a time-out, and Adam keeps yelling and pounding on the lid in this hysterical manner in the background and Ando keeps telling Hiro not to trust the sexy Englishman
- aunt_zelda

Hee. Adam guesses that Angela is the boss-character. He’s totally right, too. Sarcastic guys are always right. Just look at Xander Harris.
- aunt_zelda

(See, show, it works like this: toss Elle together with Claire, add Claude to the mix, pick up Peter along the way, and send them on one giant road trip of crime-fighting. Meanwhile, Adam and Hiro and Ando are running around being a hot love triangle of angst. Sylar ‘fixes’ Mohinder and teases HRG about his boyfriends. What do I have to do to get these results?)
- [Unknown LJ tag]

Adam fiddles with Hiro’s tie absentmindedly, gives him up as a lost cause, and says “Try and … look tough.” It’ll take about four and a half years to do that, Mr. Monroe. The Sword and a soulpatch would help, methinks, and maybe a leather jacket for Ando.
- aunt_zelda

ANDO IS DEAD!!!!! WTF? THIS MAKES NO SENSE SO I HAVE TO GO INTO A CAPSLOCK RAGE
- deepwonderment

ADAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM! Is it just me or did he get a perm while vacationing underground?
- canadian_turtle

And why would the bartender recognize Adam? Does he recognize him from thirty years ago? Adam fucked the guy's wife THIRTY YEARS AGO and he's not over it?
- mystery_sock

Speaking of a plan could Adam be anymore gay if he tried, an appletini really. I wouldn't have expected a 400 year old guy to be such a lightweight. Then again he did ignore a certain princess for half of last season so I guess it's not that much of a stretch.
- godiloveslash

Adam wakes up and immediately makes more sense than anybody else.
Although I really think he's channeling Westley. "Wait! I have a plan!!" I do hope he gets Linderman in his sights and starts talking about "to the pain." bwahaha.
- tiptoe39

In the chaos, Adam, being the smartest guy in the room by far, flees the sinking show, I mean ship.
- tiptoe39

IF HIRO ACTUALLY STABBED ANDO, I AM NOT WATCHING THIS SHOW ANYMORE. WTF WAS WITH THAT SHIT.
- tiptoe39

The Adam we saw in this episode was the perfect blend of those two; a guy who, left to his own devices, will cause mayhem, murder, and possibly the apocalypse, and who also enjoys appletinis, taunting bartenders about their fickle wives, calls people Nazis and sighs "Okay" like a petulant teen when asked to behave.
- ibroketuesday

I love the way Adam said okay, like a kid who let his parents win a fight.
- schtroumph_c

Appletini? I'm sorry, Adam, but JD and Scrubs made me associate the drink with something far from you.
- schtroumph_c

"We are badasses, now!" Oh Hiro. Hee, even Daphne is not on killing Ando. She's used to her Robin.
- schtroumph_c

Um. Hiro. Why're you so trusting of Adam? You locked the guy underground for several months. There is going to be bad blood there. Just saying.
- shockd

NOOOO! Unspecial Ando! Hiro didn’t even consider for that long. So… he has this whole not-going-back-in-time thing he now believes in. How are we planning to reverse this death? I mean, we know it’s Heroes, so Ando isn’t really dead. Who’s the last season regular who died for real? Isaac in Season One, perhaps? Since then? Who has stayed dead?
- brighteyed_jill

I love how he turns spastic and acts like a sixteen year old boy around Hiro. YOU STOLE MY GIRLFRIEND. GO AWAY.

I also love that the first thing he does is get a drink. Not change his clothes or brush his teeth. He wants his fucking appletini.

UM I HOPE THAT SOMEHOW HIRO HAS A PLAN BUT KNOWING HIM HE DOESN'T OR IT IS FAIL. Maybe Adam will use his blood to save Ando and they will kill Hiro for being an idiot and then elope together. For the funsies of course.

Knox: "Okay, Hiro, kill your buddy and we'll let you join our super cool secret group."
Hiro: *shrug* "Okay!" *STABBITY*

I didn't buy it. I was all, "This is a freakish dream sequence or something, right? Right?!"

Oh Ando, you're not the worst heroes around *coughs*Peter*coughs*

'Looked everywhere' apparently doesn't include dumpsters.

Pinehurst: Daphne, Knox & Maury!Linderman

The Pinehurst offices are weirder than the Primatech ones. What's their cover story? Are they an ink company?
- cupcakery

Oh, Daphne, don't recruit Mohinder. He'll only make you stupid. And yes, he is nasty. I really think it's contagious now. I have to admit that I like Daphne, although now that I've said that, she's going to die because that's how it always happens.
- cupcakery

Linderman: "You're late!
Daphne: "A wizard speedster is never late, she arrives precisely when she means to."
- canadian_turtle

A van? Big badass Knox punches Adam out and stuffs him in a freaking van? What is this? The A-Team?
- alicebluegown16

Imaginary!Linderman is Daphne’s imaginary employer? Then how is she getting paid? And doesn’t there have to be a real person to be moving the physical objects he needs to move? Or can he full out Swayze that motherfucker if he wants to?
- brighteyed_jill

Daphne actually has a soul (unlike the majority of the characters on this show!) and I think she might be the first female character that I actually somewhat like (besides Molly, but does that count because she's an adorable little girl. And Monica, but she's gone so.).
- its_not_wrong



Misc.

Fuck. This show is like a puppy that won't piddle on the paper. Every time, you're shocked and surprised and feel betrayed, but you just can't hate it! It's too cute awesome!
- ladymalchavc

But there was not ONE of my favorite characters that did not do something TOTALLY UNFORGIVABLE this episode that caused me an intense amount of tragic anguish. THIS IS NOT OKAY. I have started doing the Rickles!fist of rage (tm Stephen Colbert) at my television, only this time at Tim Kring. KRIIIIIIIING!
- chibirhm

One of these days, the female characters on this show are actually going to run the hell away when the men they're with start talking to themselves, rambling about being God's angels, stating right in front of them that they were going to kill them, stalking them, killing others, playing peeping tom outside their window, or giving them good ol' fashioned brain damage. No, seriously.

Dear Writers,

I feel that you all need to sit down and plan the future events in one long, big group meeting. I'm starting to feel that you're taking too many liberties with the canon and that you need to make some definite decisions, and you need to answer them ON THE FUCKING SHOW. Did Sylar really lose his powers, or not? How did Maury get out of his coma? When exactly did Hiro bury Adam, and why?

Also, you all really need to stop focusing on generating WTF reactions and focus a little more on the character developments and dynamics. Why did you make Tracy likable and leave Maya with nothing to do but bang Mohinder, chastise him a little, and then get bested by him? MOAR CHARACTER-BASED SCENES, PLZ.

KTHNX,
- angary
