Review of Episode 316: “Building 26”

This episode takes a turn for the sentimental. quest of Sylar’s father, a wedding called off and and Bennett’s family issues take center stage along side a contrastingly cold Nathan.

Claire and Comic Book Boy: Claire is perplexed by strange text messages from a mysterious person known only as “Rebel” Rebel tells her to warn a mysterious clerk named Kyle that “they” are after him. After taking a moment to convince Kyle of the urgency of the moment, they are able to escape the Feds and Noah and talk a bit> Kyle reveals an underwater ability and Claire confesses Noah real job.

It’s quite clear that there’s a budding romance on the rise between Claire and her new sidekick. Noah and Sandra are having trouble reconciling Noah’s continued path of employment and have decided to seperate. This is good for dramatic tension between father and daughter. Two people who love each other with conflicting agendas – it’s quite classic!

Nathan Gets a Boss: Abby Collins of Homeland Security has been assigned to oversee the funding of Nathan’s roundup but she is skeptical of his motives – until of course she see Tracey Strauss freeze an agent to death!

Nathan now has Abby to do his bidding on the legislative front and vows to fund anything. This means some very intense warfare!

Hiro and Ando Become Wedding Crashers: Matt’s drawing has led Hiro and Ando to New Delhi, India to a random wedding where they find a dejected and despairing bride-to-be named Anapura ans a smug, jerk of a groom named Tepak. Tepak finds Ando plotting to stop the wedding and proceeds to knock Ando on the head with a pot and kidnaps him only to have Hiro break up the wedding again in the exact spot in depicted in Matt’s painting. Then in the next scene Rebel strikes again via a fax to warn Hiro and Ando of danger. Hiro is convinced it is the message of his destiny.

This one is a mystery. Obviously, it’s important, but why? Where does Anapura fit into the equation? Might she have a power and if so what is it? If not, why have the story? I guess we’ll all have to wait this soap opera out.

Sylar and Luke Take a Road Trip: Sylar and Luke travel a few hours west and discuss Sylar’s dad’s infamous red wagon. Both Sylar and Luke exchange memories of the wagon in a moment of emotional connection between the two. This pays off for Luke later as Sylar helps save him from the Feds after first leaving the boy at a diner in an earlier scene.

Is this a sign of Sylar struggling with a sense of compassion? Why did Sylar save Luke after the boy gave Sylar the address of Sylar’s father. Luke was Sylar’s link to his father but when he gave Sylar that address all bets were off.

Noah Gets Slipped a Mickey: After announcing a separation from his wife, Noah is seen at a bar where he collapses as is subsequently hoisted up by his “friends” Matt and peter!

This is scandalous and may drive a whole new plotline. It’s a good move by the writers to create a new tension point in the story in which Noah can now be used as a bartering tool and a hostage… ooooooh!

Time caught up with me today, but I thought I’d leave all the people with severe Dania Ramirez crushes something fun to amuse themselves…. C’mon I think this is funny:

Review of Episode 315: “Blood and Trust”

The week’s storyline was minimal but set up the dynamic for a whole new battle between the heroes and Feds which maybe quite exciting for future episodes! The are only two major plot points:

The Heroes’ Plane has Landed: Claire, Hiro, Suresh and company have crash-landed somewhere in Arkansas to a now dismembered plane and the heroes are left to roam the surrounding area while swarmed by military forces. As they run, a vengeful Noah catches up to Claire to take her home while Peter escapes into the woods. Matt runs off to lone park bench to use his newly harnessed pre-cog drawing ability. He is unknowingly tracked by Ando’s GPS and found by Ando and Daphne. Nathan tries to control the fallout of it all but finds no help by his military sidekick – fallout which includes a gunned down Daphne and crazed “hunter” who may have been manipulated by Matt to turn on his own army. But through it all the heroes decide to keep fighting.

The US vs. THEM dynamic is intense and continues to build with each episode but the future is uncertain. This is probably a good twist for a whole new story. It lessens bordom and keeps views interested – always a plus!

Sylar’s New Friend: Sylar is on a quest to find his birth father. I leads him to Newark, NJ to the home of Mary and Luke Campbell who are greeted by Sylar and a tied, gagged and stabbed Special Agent Simmons. After a bit of truth or dare and torture and finds a dispondant Luke who hates his life. Sylar uses Luke’s anger and depression to provoke him to reveal a special ability to melt objects and “subjects” including Agent Simmons. The two form a bond and Luke vows to help Sylar find Sylar’s father.

Will Luke and Sylar’s relationship prove to be an advantage or a curse? What powers might Sylar’s father have if found? What is Luke’s future in the series? This may be tricky. Stay tuned.

Episode 414 Live Blog: “Clear and Present Danger” (Updated 2/4/09)

Well, the round up has begun. Peter Petrelli has become the enforcer supreme feeding into th stress of a post-9/11 America taking former friends like Tracey Strauss with him. We also find Sylar is indeed alive and now searching to find his true parents rather than his next victim. Hiro creates new super personae for himself and Ando. Matt discovers his calling to be a “prophet;’ and yet again Claire feels compelled to get involved. There is also a bit of a surprise in the end that I, as a good blogger am not at liberty to discuss without ruining your viewing experience for those of you who missed tonight’s episode…. The wackiness in back, Baby!
