Remember when Sylar was captured by Mr. Bennet (Noah)? There was a roach in his cell! I wonder if the roach was the bad bogeyman that Molly is afraid of.

I know this is a random thought but is it possible that Hiro's dad is the ancient warrior guy?

It's two characters that mean 'great talent' and 'godsend'. And Godsend was the name of the episode where Hiro finds the sword.

From Wiki: Hiro's Sword

Quote:
In episode 12 ("Godsend") the symbol appears on the sword hilt and Ando Masahashi remarks that it appears to be a combination of two Kanji characters: 才 (Sai) meaning "Great Talent" and 与 (Yo) meaning "Godsend". During an interview at the Wizard World in Los Angeles, writer and Co-Producer Aron Coleite stated that it literally means “God sending great ability.” Writer and co-executive producer Micheal Green stated that the writers know it as "the helix"[14]. This symbol frequently appears as a pattern formed by mundane objects, but it also recurs on certain plot-significant items and on several characters

Someone moved my effing cheese.

That is the only thing I can think of as well, but I was just so convinced last night that he would fly up himself. DH was too. I kind of feel like this was a weak ending, deliberately heavy-handed to stir emotions based on our reactions to a situation that shouldn't have been that way, given their powers. I mean Claire not wanting to shoot him in the head when she has done horrible things to herself, and she couldn't even be sure the bullet wouldn't just go through his head and he would regenerate. And the fact that both Peter and Hiro could come to the square with such precision...it was pretty dramatic, though.

Quote:
I'm also secretly hoping that Nathan let go of Peter when he exploded and jetted away only to come back and catch him. I don't think P exploded either, I think he sent out nuclear energy away from him. The whole regenerating thing doesn't have to be important, IMO, since we never saw Ted get hurt from his nuclear activity. I mean, he would at least have burns on his hands or something.
Nathan should have been seriously burned from grabbing onto Peter, however. The only reason Claire was able to survive was her regeneration ability.

Quote:

But Candace was still alive at the end, or at least not killed by Sylar. Sylar gets his powers when he cuts out their brains. How inconvenient. If he had Peter's ability to get powers, wonder if he still would have killed everyone.

And that by taking care of it, he stopped Clare (his daughter) from having to do the job. It was touching.
It's one thing to injure yourself, something else entirely to shoot someone you care about, even if you know in your head it won't hurt them or is for the greater good. I like that she didn't have to shoot him, it preserves her innocence - she and Molly Walker are the only two innocents left on the show. Even Micah has had to knowingly do something morally questionable with his ability.

Quote:
I thought Molly and Micah were cute together. I hope for both their sakes they get to be friends. If must be hard growing up with a super power.
I bet Niki and DL adopt Molly...at least for the time being. It makes sense - they already have a similarly aged, talented child, are more than capable of protecting her, and her parents are dead.

One thing I didn't like though...when Niki fought Candace, and knocked her out, Candace faded back to the brunette; in (I believe) last week's episode, Candace implied several times that the brunette wasn't her true appearance. When Micah said he had a cousin who was huge, she muttered under her breath that so was she...also her speech about how Linderman was going to heal the world, she kinda teared/choked up when she talked about being judged by the way you look. Made it seem like the brunette was just another mask.

I'm still in awe over the last episode,.....

Maybe she's just used that form for a basic appearance for so long it's just kinda locked in that that is the one she reverts to...if that makes any sense...

re: Sylar's eyes/flashes... I slowed it down and watched them in slow motion. They were actually visions of what appeared to be the past. It looked to be mostly of people who he had killed (including his mother). It ended with a picture of himself lying there.

As for Candice... I thought the same thing that she would be a bigger girl. But maybe, her issues were just that of low self esteem and thinking she is bigger/uglier than she is. Afterall we did not see her face... she could be scarred or whatever and therefore insecure about how she looks and her body. Something like that would make sense considering what her ability is and maybe even making a correlation that sometimes these "heroes" develop abilities that they NEED because of some faults with themselves (physically or subconciously).

Hmmm, I thought Candice's face was pretty clear and that it was the same character she was. We were bummed that she didn't revert back to the black woman from when she took Micah to the voting booth.

Oh oh oh, eewe eewe eewe oh oh oh!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I had a thought today as I was contemplating my lawn and how much i am grossed out by the fact that there seems to be a roach problem.... I reflected back to a couple recent threads here on the TAO about roaches and it was mentioned that roaches can live for a looooooong time without their heads....

SO....


If Sylar really did get roach powers, it wouldn't have mattered if Hiro cut off his head. He could have lived anyways!!!

Eeeewe icky eewe eewe!!!!

I am in possession of the original Heroes pilot script. Fascinating stuff in there.

For one, they originally had Nathan running for District Attorney, not Congress. And Sylar was introduced in the pilot and was a priest. And there's this big monologue about the resiliency of the cock roach and how it is immune to radiation and can live without its head.

DL is in the first episode too and is just finding out he has powers to phase and all that. And Nathan and Linderman are hanging together! And Peter and Nathan are twins. the big drama in the first episode was Mama Petrelli getting arrested for shoplifting. hahahah. CAn you imagine?

Crazy stuff huh? Would have been a whole different kind of season if they had aired this version. It was Ethan and Harrison instead of Peter and Nathan.

And the stuff about the cock roaches is all over the place. I think it was meant to suggest something.

Wow!!! That is so interesting!! You are right, it would have been a whole different show....Mamma Petrelli a shoplifter....Ethan and Harrison :

So, you gotta tell us all how it came to be that you have the original pilot script!!!

If you get the DVD, one of the features is the original pilot to the show.

They kept the part about Mama Petrelli shoplifting (remember she stole a pair of socks), it would have made more sense if Nathan was running for DA.

A friend of mine sent me the original script.

I also have the original Lost pilot but the one I have is the same as the one they showed.

Nathan as DA... I like that. But it makes more sense that he's a congressman. It's a faster approach to the presidency.

And yes, ewww! Yuck! *shudder* Sylar the headless psychopath. If that's the case then the only way to destroy him is to chop him into little tiny bits.

Maybe he'll metamorphosize into a giant cockroach while he's in the sewers.

I have to admit, I'm still confused as to why Mama Petrelli was shoplifting socks in the first episode.

Mama to Munchkin  and Chickadee ...and co-parent to 3 additional bundles of energy!

Oh, I'd totally forgotten about the graphic novels! I didn't even realize they'd continued with them, so thanks for reminding me! I'm caught up now - I knew there was something about her true appearance!
