Heroes 3x24 Meta  
Here we go-go-go



1) Second episode in a row with a cut scene in the previouslies. Sloppy sloppy sloppy.

2) I almost cheered, thinking to myself, "There's the Matt Parkman I know!" Two seconds before Ando said "That's not the Matt Parkman I know." Cue headdesk.

3) Regardless, Matt is still made of win. Smart guy. Handsome funny guy. I love him.

4) First emo scene with Sylar was fail. His lips didn't seem to move at all. That's not emo, that's novocaine.

5) Regardless, the title showing was pretty good.

6) Pardon me while I die at the Grunny commercial. HOW ARE YOU AND YOUR WHOLE FAMILY SO ATTRACTIVE!!!

7) Random guy is random.
7a) Random guy is dead.

8) If they give Sylar full-blown MPD I'll be pissed. I want him to be cognizant of the fact that he's conjuring up ghosts. Otherwise it's too easy.

9) Ando being unfrozen is, #1, a total WHOA moment; #2, explains my questions in the meta a few weeks ago about why Baby Matt was unfrozen; and #3, signals to me that more than one character's powers are not working the way we're expecting them to. I wonder.

10) I got a good laff at the stereotypical cop. So sue me.

11) Sylar going through his mother's belongings looking for "something to hold on to"... "Hmm. Sweater? Smells like blood, which is nice, but has girl cooties all over it. Snowglobe? Reminds me of Danko's head, which is simultaneously nice and disturbing." Quite frankly, I think he needs to find a skull and slice it open halfway. That will always remind him of his roots.

12) It would be cool if Sylar had shapeshifted into two people at once. Can he do that? He could make himself an army and march on the Capitol. An ARMY OF SYLARS!

13) How did Danko figure out Rebel was a technopath? I mean, he'd either figured it out ages ago and just been too lazy to look in the files for known technopaths (Micah was pretty obviously known, right? Linderman used him, after all) or he just found out tonight, so I wanna know how.

14) Sylar + Micah = Sycah!

15) Now I'm starting to ship Luke & Micah. Can you imagine the stories they could tell? Oh, pedovan, you have truly and really picked me up at the corner and now I'm ridin' shotgun.

16) Speaking of people not knowing things they should know, since WHEN does Micah know all of Sylar's inner demons, especially considering SYLAR himself is just starting to figure them out? It's like an RP where the character knowledge and mun knowledge get all all mixed up.

17) I am impressed with Sylar saying he thought machines would be overkill. His giant mutant brain is starting to resemble a pretzel, I'm sure.

18) Moment of self-knowledge: I'm just like Sylar, really. I want to be noticed, be special, be better than everyone, and I pitch a fit if I'm not and end up doing destructive things. Or, rather Tippy 1.0 did that. Everyone knows Tippy 2.1 has been upgraded. (2.0 didn't have the mindfulness patch.)

19) Did anyone else catch the bit of very-close-to-Batman-theme music at the end of the scene where Ando & Hiro run away from the truck?

20) Sylar's big monologue was big. But I couldn't stop looking at his mouth. He has a VERY PURTY mouth.

21) Sylar got Nathan's DNA from his TOOTHBRUSH. I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say, "EWWWWWWWWWWWWWW."

22) Jan looks beautiful, I love the curls in her hair, and despite my slasher's heart, when she's with Matt I like them together. I was relieved that Matt said he didn't know. I think my dream of Mattmo being actual canon-flavored couplage is dying. Instead, I think they're gonna match up Mohinder and Peter. (They renewed their promise of giving us a gay hero recently in one of the Behind the Eclipse interviews).

23) David H. Lawrence the Eleventeenth stars in his own Web series! Smart marketing is smart and knows to pick a character who has become a cult hit AND has his own Twitter feed. Also, non-stunningly-beautiful main character = awesome.

24) I liked that "hi from..." ad for AT&T. I saw it in fast-forward double-time, but I liked it.

25) I liked Noah schooling Nathan on Sylartactics. And I liked Nathan not listening to a word of it.

26) HIROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Yeah, I think he's gonna die. I think he and Nathan are gonna die. Sorry, I do. Maybe Sylar, too.

27) I like how they casually reference things from early Volume 3 just to remind us they're keeping better track of continuity now. The hint is appreciated, guys.

28) My theory: the first thing Sylar did when he got shapeshifting ability was to scramble his brains slightly so "the spot" wasn't so easy to hit. Would explain the emo side-effect too.

29) When Sylar came back, was he half scruffy!Nathan? Like from the chin down? Or was that me being unable to tell my Heroes apart from their stubble? I might just fail at life for that.



As always, your comments and thoughts are appreciated!

If Sylar dies I will be so pissed. Except I really don't think he CAN die at this point. If they kill him off they're gonna lose half their fanbase like that. Kill of Peter or Nathan, there goes the other half.

I'd be really surprised if they kill off one of the Petrelli boys.

Matt was wonderful in the ep. I'll be surprised if the kill Hiro. It seems like he's too well liked, and there could be a bad reaction to his death. Any other character could die (even my fave, Matt) and the fans would deal with it, I think, but Hiro is like the adorable, idealistic kid everyone likes. I think its more likely Matt, Nathan or maybe Ando will die.

The whole Sylar and his mommy thing freaked me out, but that's 'cause the movie Psycho freaks me to no end.

Nathan Petrelli is Kenny from South Park, at the end of each season, bitch has got to die.

So far for those confirmed for season 4-

Claire
Tracy
Peter
Matt
HRG
Sylar
Hiro

Potentials on the chopping block

Angela
Nathan
Mohinder (though he's in the maybe at this point, I thought I saw something somewhere saying he's in s4)
Ando.

As far as I know these are the characters that are going to be alive or dead come s4 from previous things I've read.

Grunny was in a commercial?

Mohinder is captured! AGAIN! It's repetitive! And by the way, how did they find him? He was in Coyote Sands since almost 24 hours.

P.S: I hope my english was correct.
