Heroes: Will Matt Go Postal?

Heroes: Will Matt Go Postal?

The latest episode of “Heroes” continued to complicate matters, but fortunately in a good way. The majority of this episode centered on Peter, Surresh and Matt having kidnapped HRG and using Matt’s talent to tap into HRG’s mind to get the answers they sought about Nathan’s plans. This lead to a lot of flashbacks and back story. Thus we got no Claire, no Sylar and no Ando and Hiro this week.

Through Matt’s mind meld, we saw how Nathan recruited HRG for his odd plan to capture the heroes and according to Nathan, find a way to strip them all of their powers in order to make the world safer. Hmm, I have to wonder if Nathan would give up his own power? HRG claimed all he knew was rounding up people with abilities, he dedicated his life to it, so he would help Nathan. Of course he also wanted to make sure Claire was left out of this as well.

HRG tried to recruit Surresh at one point, which Surresh never told any of his friends. This made Matt furious and he and Surresh began to fight. Matt thought he might have been working for them all along. Meanwhile Peter had left to search out guns and weapons that HRG had stashed. Matt found the location through his mind, he thought they could use all the weapons they could get. Of course the Hunter was watching the place and moved in to get Peter. The Hunter was totally growing impatient with Nathan in this episode, knowing very well Nathan was letting his brother and daughter get away with too much. I do have to wonder, he’s gotta know Nathan has a power at this point. I mean Nathan’s brother and daughter have them, 1+1=2!

Peter managed to get away from the Hunter, but it lead him back to the hotel where the others had been hiding out with HRG. HRG revealed to Matt that Daphne was alive, the Hunter and Nathan have her captive in one of their buildings. However HRG warned him he didn’t think she’d be alive for long because of the Hunter. HRG escaped during the raid on the hotel by the government. Surresh bought Peter and Matt time to escape, but ended up getting caught.

Peter and Matt it seemed retreated to Isaac’s old studio where Matt painted some shocking images. One was of him with what appeared to be a bomb strapped to his chest. Peter said he wasn’t a killer, but Matt wasn’t so sure. On the floor of the room he had painted the entire capital being blown up!

Meanwhile a second huge shocker was revealed. HRG met with Angela in the park. They are once again in cahoots together and working against Nathan and the Hunter it seems. Angela told him he would continue to be tested by the two, he must pass their tests and get in with them, to gain their trust. Angela made veiled comments like “let Nathan think he is in control for now.” I gotta know what she is planning! I hope she hasn’t gone back to being a bad girl again, but with her who knows. I fear she’s somehow connected to Matt’s vision of the explosion in D.C.

As usual, I had a million things going on while the show was on, so pardon any mistakes 🙂

  1. I want to know what was with the watch the HGR gave Angela at the end? I didn’t get it?

  2. I’m not sure it this is right but I think it was just a symbol of them working together again. At the beginning she gave it to him as some sort of retirement gift but then at the end they were working together again so he gave it back.

  3. Might also have something to do with Sylar? Given the whole symbolism with watches and Sylar.

  4. Oooh, good call Dustin about Sylar and watch. Could the watch also have some sort of hidden GPS or microphone to keep tabs on Angela?
