Heroes Episode 105: Hiro's post #1  quote:



A messenger from the future named Hiro Nakamura has come to Peter Petrelli to deliver a simple message, "Save the cheerleader; save the world." Before Hiro restarts time, he instructs Peter to visit Isaac, and not to tell Suresh too much. Meanwhile, a group of doctors work on Claire as Brody stares at her from a nearby hospital bed after crashing his car into a wall.

In Las Vegas, Mr. Bennet and the cleaner walk Nathan from the hotel at gunpoint. Nathan threatens to kill them both if they do anything to him. When Claire's father tells the cleaner to "put him down," Nathan looks to the sky, leaps, and takes to the safety of the clouds.

When she wakes up in the morning in Nathan's hotel room, Niki has no idea where she is. Nor does she know where Nathan is when his security detail asks for him. Linderman's henchmen arrive on the scene to tell Niki that her debt is absolved, but Niki insists that she didn't sleep with Nathan, even though there's a DVD that shows otherwise.

Janice Parkman is worried sick about her missing husband, but worry turns to anger when she discovers him waking up on their couch. He recalls working with the FBI, but doesn't know where he's been for the past day. Reading her thoughts, Matt is surprised to learn how much she still cares about him, even through they hardly speak anymore.

After suffering a beating at the hands of some unhappy gamblers, Ando and Hiro are tossed from a van and into the Nevada desert. At a diner, the two friends argue and Ando storms out. Hiro turns to look out the window just in time to see Nathan Petrelli zoom in to a landing on the scorching desert sand. In the diner, Hiro tells Nathan that he is also special, that he can bend time and space, but Nathan doesn?t believe this seemingly insane Japanese man.

Claire tells her father what happened at the bonfire and admits that she attempted to hurt Brody by driving into the wall, but she really just wanted to prevent him from attacking other girls. Mr. Bennett promises he won't tell anyone.

Without Suresh, Peter arrives at Isaac's studio asking for his help, but Isaac is less than welcoming. Looking through Isaac's paintings, Peter finds one of a dark shadow falling over Claire.

Nathan drives Hiro back to Las Vegas. While Hiro struggles with rental car?s controls, Nathan runs into Niki and asks what happened last night and why two men tried to throw him into a van. She doesn't know what happened and doesn't remember a thing about the night before. Niki tells him that Linderman blackmailed her into sleeping with him... just like Linderman is going to blackmail him.

Nat King Cole's rendition of "Stardust" lilts through the air as Matt surprises his wife with a gourmet that's complete with all the food and wine she's been thinking about for years. Everything she could have thought of, he?s thought of first. His romantic gesture is almost too much for her to accept.

Mr. Bennett pays Brody a visit. Brody thinks that Claire is a freak and denies trying to rape her. Bennett swoops in and clamps his hand over Brody's mouth as he calls in his mysterious compatriot to "hollow out" Brody's memories.

In Isaac's loft, Peter tries to make sense of all the paintings when one that's unfinished takes his eye: a man standing over Claire. Staring at it, Peter realizes that he can finish the painting on his own. He closes his eyes. When he opens them, they're clouded over white. He picks up a brush and begins to paint while in a trancelike state.

Claire apologizes to Brody for driving the car into the wall, but Brody doesn't know who she is. He doesn't even know his own name.

Niki returns home to find her house crawling with cops looking for her husband, DL. When the front door opens, their guns come out, but it's not DL entering the house... it's Ando, who used to be one of Niki's regular clients on her website.

As Nathan checks out of the hotel, Linderman's representative has a few words with him about the tape of his encounter with Niki. Nathan turns the situation around by asking for an additional four million dollars in campaign funds. If he was so important to go through all this trouble for two million, then four million will guarantee his victory, making him even more valuable to Linderman in the future.

After making love with his wife, Matt reads her mind that she wants coffee ice cream, and he goes to the store to get some. The thoughts from the other customers' heads swirl through Matt's mind until he centers on those of a young man planning to rob the store at gunpoint. Matt talks the man out of it and takes the gun, but when the customers see Matt with the gun, they think that he's going to rob the store. Their voices rise in his head until they get to be too much. He passes out.

Ando seems genuinely sad when Niki sends him back into town without any help. With Ando and the cops gone, Niki thinks she hears something strange in the house, but she doesn't find anything out of place. But she's right. DL ? Mr. Bennet's cleaner ? hides just around the corner.

Ando and Hiro make amends and resume on their journey to find Isaac.

Peter and Isaac stare at Peter's finished painting: a gruesome image of Claire turned upside down, the top of her head missing, splayed out in a sea of her own blood. A ringing phone shocks them back to this world, but Isaac tells Peter to ignore it, "Some Japanese guy keeps calling." Realizing that it's Hiro, Peter answers the phone. "My name's Peter Petrelli," he says, "I have a message for you."

I agree... I really like it. Wish that Shannon would have watched it, but she wasn't that interested after the premier.

That sucks. Illuminate wasn't interested but she watched a few more and I think she likes it now.

I think the storyline is progressing just fine. Not too quick, not too slow.

I agree... it's moving at a good clip... building up things, but giving you a lot.

Too bad that Matt's powers have already grown to the point where the thoughts overwhelm him and he passes out. Knew that had to happen at some point, but it sucks that it happened when he was having such a good day. If his powers have gotten strong so quickly, maybe it won't be very long before he can control them and only read certain minds when he wants to.

I loved Bennett's reaction to hearing what happened to Claire. Man was he ticked, but he kept it controlled until he went to Brody and had his cleaner "hollow him out." Gotta say, Claire is definately not in danger from her dad.

Yeah, Claire's dad isn't going to harm her. But he is still hiding a lot.

Last time Matt passed out like that though the Mind Control guy was right there. Maybe whatever he did (or is still doing) is messing with his powers.

To be honest, the only real enemy here that I can see is Sylar. We don't really know anyone's true motives yet.

That's true... we don't know what the motives are, for anyone, at this point.

I loved that Claire's dad had his guy erase that punks memory.
I liked the speech he gave him first though... about getting a second chance and trying to have a better life.
I wonder if that's what they were doing for Matt... giving him a second chance, to work on his marriage. Hell, I don't know anything at this point.

It's obvious Mr. Bennett and Mindwiper guy are targeting heroes only. Not to kill, but to do something. By virtue of the fact they are only doing this to heroes (when they're not exactng revenge) that means they are either studying them or getting them to their bidding.

Right... they are doing something, but what? It would be something if it was to just study them. Though, I have a feeling that it's more than that. Because Mindwiper dude can make someone forget a day, or an entire life, is something. What is the purpose for it?
