Heroes: Catching Up And Thoughts

Heroes: Catching Up And Thoughts

Posted by Dustin on 01.22.2010 at 6:19 pm

So I had a 2 hour marathon of “Heroes” Monday night, both last week’s and this week. Again just some quick comments and thoughts as I continue to play catch-up.

I thought the story with Claire and Sylar was interesting and not what I expected. I thought yet again he’d have to get something from her, but all he wanted was her thoughts on his situation. In the end he had to trick her by pretending to be Gretchen, but got what he needed. In order to be human again he has to give up all he’s stolen. Interesting! Could we actually see Sylar try and be cured of all his powers via a serum from Surresh?

Having Claire go gay with Gretchen I am having issues with, mainly because they’ve given her boyfriends through most of the show. Then again all her boyfriends seem to mysteriously vanish too!

I like that Lydia is onto Samuel, and with his destructive outburst at the local town, I think the rest of the Carnies are too. Also Lydia sensing Peter could be their new leader and sending him the compass was a great twist. Again unexpected, I thought for sure it would be someone like Hiro or Surresh.

Hiro putting his life on the line to save Surresh, then ending up on “trial” was interesting. I did like seeing David Anders back, wasn’t expecting that one at all! I just hope with his mother healing him that we are over this brain tumor storyline with him.

I know I’m forgetting other stories in this, it’s been awhile. I know Noah was on for a bit, but sorta wasn’t paying close attention when he was on. Then there was the Peter and Emma drama, with Mama Petrelli seeing Emma hurting many people with the cello. Peter smashing it and inuring Emma’s wrath was a bit startling. I could totally see her going bad along with Samuel, Samuel dying and then her just snapping. Though at the same time I feel they are setting up this drama and tension to put her into a love story with Peter.

  1. It is VERY common for gay people to date the opposite sex in high school. Her story is fairly accurate I’d say…

  2. YEah, I guess I just kinda feel like they went there for the ratings and drama more than leading into it 🙂

  3. I tend to agree with Dustin, that it was done for ratings and for drama rather then true storyline purposes or even having a good back story for why she has chosen this route.

    But I cannot help but wonder if there is more to the storyline that has yet to be shown or even dealt with.

  4. I think Claire and Gretchen are cute together, I just wish there was more of a backstory to them I guess. I did have the same issues with Hahn on Grey’s when suddenly she just was gay, whereas Callie they at least had some issues/experimenting with on the way.

  5. I think they are giving it the time it needs. It was like esp 2 or three when Gretchen came out and since then we have seen Claire make efforts to keep her in her life while at the same time trying not to commit to it.
