Save the cheerleader. Save the world.
That’s what we were promised and it finally looks like the time has come. But where’s Hiro? I watched this in two parts and the first 25 minutes was incredible. I loved it and had to tear myself away from it.
I worried about Hiro throughout the episode so it was nice to know we’ll get to see what happens at the end, although that may mean the Homecoming storyline may be hold for the next episode.
So many great things happened, first of all Isaac looks better cleaned up and no longer like Gaius Baltar from Battlestar Galactica. But my favourite was the humanising of all the characters – Nathan’s meaness, Ando’s realisation he depends on Hiro, Peter’s acceptance of his powers and what he must do, Mohinder realising he had a sister and his father protected him (by the way I paused the computer screen and there are at least 40 names on there, 10 of which are deceased and six our heroes we know), DL realising he must do what his son says, Claire accepting herself etc etc. It was all brilliant.
After each episode I realise lots of my questions are being answered, but new ones pop up. Peter is really a hero now but gets arrested, we see Eden’s power but it doesn’t work well on Sylar until the Haitian comes into it, Sylar’s powers seem unstoppable – he resists Eden but both the fall and the Haitian hurt him. What happens next? Has Peter already changed history and Sylar won’t be able to kill Isaac? I’m sure there’s a lot more to come.
Did I mention I want to know what happens to Hiro? It’s becoming a cliche, but I can’t wait for the next episode.
