OMFG HEROES!


[Poll #1092239]

As for my thoughts on the episode, three words sum them up rather concisely: holy fucking shit! :D And now, have some more spazzing, fangirling and capslocking all over the place!

Heroes, 2x09: Cautionary Tales

OMFG BENNETS! Way to break my heart. From the very first scene, too, with that heinous argument culminating in that heinous "I hate you." And! Ashley Crow rocks so, so hard at everything she does.

HRG and Mohinder broke me also. Even after lies and small betrayals, there is a trust there that's never entirely ruptured until Mohinder effectively sides with Bob's effort to kidnap Claire. It's in the text, and it's gorgeous and, again, it breaks my heart. Awesome scene in Bennet's car OMG! I adored some of the shooting angles here. That is filming genius, guys. <333 OMGGG teh first ~*~confrontation~*~!!!!1! The way they intercut the painting of Mohinder was excellent. Ooh, there is history between Elle and HRG! Haha, I was amused that Bennet smacked Mohinder on his broken nose! XD He's so badass omg, I love him. *fangirls* Anyway, I can't even talk about the fateful scene of doom. CAN'T TALK ABOUT IT. Suffice it to say, I cried. Damn. It was shot gorgeously, by the way, and I happen to be a big fan of artful slo-mo. No, really... Can't talk about it without tearing up again omgs.

Bob is so creepy. And getting creepier every week, I might add. *shudder* But damn if Tobolowsky doesn't bring the funny! His facial expressions and delivery are totally priceless on rather frequent occurances. I love that. But Bob is still a supercreepster.

LMAO, I also love how Elle is all over Mohinder. And Bob's eyeroll = lulz. And also, LOLZ @ Elle and her Slusho! making a big show of sucking on her straw... and all Mohinder cares to know is how many people she's killed. He likes the menfolk, Elle! Also regarding Mohinder, I think it's fair to say his leitmotiv has changed from "my father's research" to "I've gotta do what's right" and variations thereof. Boy is so confused! And yeah, most of his choices in these matters have been ill-advised (at best), but this is all so new to him and I do believe he is trying to do what's right. It pains me a bit when people are so quick to call him senseless. :x

Okay, moving on... to Matt! ♥ Hee hee, how cute with Molly! lolz "come back and finish your cereal." I was squealing with delight. Am totally crushing on Grunny, btw. Like, big time. Anyhows! Arthur Petrelli's name is now canon, thank you writers! "Like a disco?" LOLOL, I love Matt's captain. Interview with Angela = so made of win. Walking a fine line there, Parkman, are we? But it's interesting to see if and how he'll come to abuse this newfound ability in the near future. Guy needs to toughen up, mostly emotionally, so that's sure to bring forth some development in that area.

p.s. moar random lulz: LOLOL THE OLDER GEN CAN'T COUNT FOR CRAP!! XD In 1671, Adam wasn't aware of his power and probably much more aware of his own age. Say around 30, max. In the 1970s, he'd hardly be anywhere near 400.

OMG HIRO-KUN ;_; Awwwz, reunion with tôsan! <\3 That goodbye on the Deveaux rooftop was heartwrenching! Hiro-kun! Talking to a frozen Ando-kun, even! And his FACE when his saw Adam's! <\3 That's a lotsa <\3 right there. Random lolz: lol gratuitous close-up of nekkid statue. How freaking cute was his exchange with his 7-year-old self? Beyond adorable, I would say! And the ending speech/montage was really great, also.

Thank goodness for the very last scene but omfg NBC promo department, I HATE YOU LIKE YOU HAVE NO IDEA. *shakes fist at them* I said I'd stop watching their damn previews because they always give away HUGE spoilers, like the shot of HRG's face after he's been resurrected. Be thankful if you missed that. In the fateful scene of doom, even though I was in full-on panic mode and the flood gates were open, somewhere at the back of my mind I was thinking, 'wait, we haven't seen that scene yet' and khgfdlha. It's frustrating. Now, did that stop me from watching the promo for next week? Of course not. Because I'm weak-willed like that. But you bet your ass I'll be hatin' on the NBC promo department regardless! *shakes fist again*

And speaking of that promo... Holy fucking shit! [/famous last words.]

Oh and I also watched Chuck, 1x09: Chuck Vs. The Imported Hard Salami

... and I really only have one thing to say about that: OMFG THEY RIVER-TAM'D BRYCE LARKIN!!!1! o_O slkhflahlshlhdfhjal *FLAILS*

Also: they kiiiiiissssssssssssed omg. :o.

Noah/Sandra=OTP I've loved them since S1 and I love more an more as the series progresses. And this episode was so Bennet perfect (well, except for the whole getting shot in the eye and 'dying' thing. That sucked some serious ass.) I could squee over Noah/Sandra forever and ever, but I'll stop now:)

I still love West, even if nobody else really does:) At least he got a little lovin' in the poll this week. YAY:)

I need to get on the ball and write up my episode review. I will eventually:)

Hee, seriously, I've loved Noah/Sandra since last season and I was so happy that they've kept it so real and so rich. Understatement is everything. ♥♥♥

LOL, yeah, West really didn't annoy as much in this episode, good for him! May he keep on this path of being almost-likeable-omg! ;p

Most Burning Question: How is Mohinder ever going to sleep at night ever again? :o
*thinks fangirly thoughts* B/c Momo and a bed, will be like white on rice next week? B/c when don't you wonder how Momo sleeps? XD

OMFG BENNETS! Way to break my heart. From the very first scene, too,
Seriously! I went from teary eyed at "I hate you" to just ballling when Claire told Sandra the bad news. :(

Bob is so creepy. And getting creepier every week,
Was it me, or was he all to calm during that whole final altercation... Hell he was calm throughout the episode (even when HRG told him he had Elle). The man sure can keep his cool, I certainly wouldn't play poker with him anytime soon. :|

Also regarding Mohinder, I think it's fair to say his leitmotiv has changed from "my father's research" to "I've gotta do what's right" and variations thereof. Boy is so confused!
LOL I know right. Poor pretty man. :(

...

I'm so not ready for the return of Bryce. I mean yeah, Why hallo thar Mr. Larkin! Yum! But NOOOES GO AWAII! Poor Chuck. :(

Hee! Yes pls.

Point taken. Spooning with his squishy Mattbear, correct?

I went from teary eyed at "I hate you" to just ballling when Claire told Sandra the bad news. :(
Tell me about it! And the silence, too. I mean, the fact we didn't even hear what she said, that... THAT is how inexpressible the sadness was. <\3

Bob's calmness is a large contributing factor to his overall creepiness, if you ask me. ;)

LOL, I don't want Bryce's sudden revival to mess with Chuck/Sarah either. But you just know it's going to. Bah. :(


(lolol it was like my comment went on strike)

I still don't like West. One episode of being less-annoying doesn't redeem all the creepy stalking he did in the early episodes of the season. He'll have to win back more points. >:D

Hiro & Kaito's scenes were so AWWWWWW!!!

Mama Petrelli is the best baddest-ass bitch in the world.

HRG was just as awesome as always, okay, maybe a little bit more than usual. ;) ♥

Mo lost sooooo many points with me on this episode though. SO many. He'll have to earn them back somehow.

From: [identity profile] gossy16.livejournal.com
LOL, well, I gave West points for stopping HRG from shooting Mohinder in the face. Which... didn't turn out too well for HRG, but... faulty logic = <333

Hee. So who's lowest on your esteem-o-meter this week, West or Momo?

Anyway, HOLY FUCK!!!!!! For a second there, I actually believed he was dead. DUDE!!!! This is how awesome this show is!!!!

I loved Elle before and I still love her now.

West was more tolerable this week.

There needs to be a Heroes/Gilmore Girls crossover where Angela and Emily hang out and are bitchy and fabulous and awesome.

YAY OFF TO WATCH CHUCK NOW!

I know I chose West as hotass of the week, but I can't take Mohinder seriously with that nose thing on, though he was delicious as ever - I just found myself more thinking about West nekkid this episode. It's a temporary affliction I'm sure.

MOHINDER HOMG LOVE ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

LOL, I just can't shake the idea that West is a kid, heh. Shame, because D'Agosto doesn't look entirely repulsive himself, but I don't know...

I agree, though, that Mohinder's makeshift bandage has got to go. XD

Is he? He doesn't look like one. XD How old are they meant to be in this?

Can't wait to see Mohinder's nose without the bandage again. XD I never thought I'd miss a nose.

Ah, the questions of ever-shifting fictional age. The article about the fire in Claire's mother's house would have her be born in August of 1990 (18 months old in February of '92), yet in March of 2007, HRG gifts her with the Rogue for her birthday "next month". But assuming her birthyear is unchanged, she would be turning 17 shortly, and I'm guessing West's age would be roughly the same.

From: [identity profile] bitter-crimson.livejournal.com
Haha, my thoughts for most of the episode were more "HAHAHAHAHA" and "I totally called that." Although I admit, for a little while, all the emotional close-ups they kept doing of HRG made me suspicious they would actually kill him. It wasn't REALLY a full send-off episode, but I figured they already sorta kinda did one last season, and maybe they were trying to catch us off guard. But as soon as Bob took Claire's blood I figured what was going to happen. THANK GOODNESS, IT WOULD BE TRAGIC IF HRG ACTUALLY DIED. And of course the reveal of Kensei/Adam was called by everyone and his mother fifty years ago, but it was still amusing to see Hiro's face. I loved the cute exchange with big!Hiro and little!Hiro, even though Hiro totally should have been freaking out about breaking the space-time continuum by meeting himself.

THE MOST INCREDIBLY CRAZY BIT OF THIS EPISODE FOR ME WAS THAT WTF, I ACTUALLY LIKED WEST. WTH IS THAT. I HAVE HATED HIM SINCE THE VERY FIRST TIME THEY INTRODUCED HIM. AND I ACTUALLY LIKED HIM IN THIS EPISODE. TO THE POINT WHERE AT THE END WHEN HIM AND CLAIRE WERE ALL CUDDLING SADLY ON THE BED I ACTUALLY WENT "AWWWWW." SRSLY THOUGH WTF. I feel like I need to go kill some puppies or something to get my mojo back.

The preview for next week was fucking sweet ESPECIALLY B/C "WELCOME HOME, DR. SURESH." That right there. Oh baby.

Oh, dude, it would be so tragic if HRG ever died for real. I think I might go postal on Kring's ass. Like, eighteen-pages-front-and-back-!!! postal. And possibly double that if same happens to Nathan.

Haha, I've always been nonplussed by West. Never full-on hate because I didn't even care for him that much... So, yeah, his demeanor in this episode came as a surprise. :o

Ashley Crow, rockstar.

ep was directed by Greg Yaitanes. I think he's done some Lost episodes.

Also regarding Mohinder, I think it's fair to say his leitmotiv has changed from "my father's research" to "I've gotta do what's right" and variations thereof.
so true

Mini!Hiro! Otô-san! Big!Hiro telling Mini!Hiro what to do yay

Random lolz: lol gratuitous close-up of nekkid statue.
ha, that was odd.

yeah the NBC promo dep, last week: FTL
this week: FTW

and, you can say this for Chuck and Heroes:
HEEEEEEEE'S ALIIIIIIIIIIVE!

I wouldn't be so quick to call this new one FTW. I suspect the scene that has most of us so excited won't happen until the end of the episode somehow. In which case: fail, promo dep't!

OMFG BENNETS! Way to break my heart
God I know!! I didn't think it could happen so often in one episode <\3

Even after lies and small betrayals, there is a trust there that's never entirely ruptured until Mohinder effectively sides with Bob's effort to kidnap Claire.
Yes :( Even in the car HRG still has faith in Mohinder. Which is actually kind of odd seeing that HRG usually mistrusts anything and anyone (I still don't know why he hasn't questioned Mr Muggles!)

It's in the text, and it's gorgeous and, again, it breaks my heart.
Yeah the dialogue was beyond amazing this episode

Bob is so creepy. And getting creepier every week, I might add.
While the essence of the character is creepy I really don't find the guy too creepy at all o.O Maybe because he can turn metal into gold and I kinda think that's a hilarious power? :$

LMAO, I also love how Elle is all over Mohinder. And Bob's eyeroll = lulz. And also, LOLZ @ Elle and her Slusho!
*Nods* AWESOME! And also: loads of Cloverfield advertising xD

Guy needs to toughen up, mostly emotionally, so that's sure to bring forth some development in that area.
As long as he doesn't go evil...

Random lolz: lol gratuitous close-up of nekkid statue.
LOL wut?

And speaking of that promo... Holy fucking shit! [/famous last words.]
Having heard how unreliable the other promos have been now I am kinda thinking that either Mylar is the cliffhanger or it's in the season finale :\

How is Mohinder ever going to sleep at night ever again?
That's what Sylar's for :D

(You may call me Ade.) Ya srsly, I think they were going for some kind of record or something.

I don't know, maybe because he saw how intent Mohinder always is on doing the right thing above all. Of course here, "right" ended up being very different for either of them.

LOL, Bob's power is rather amusing, yeah. XD And he's a funny character, all right. But just to think of the things he's done and keeps on doing, eugh, makes me shudder.

Random lolz: lol gratuitous close-up of nekkid statue.
LOL wut?

When Kaito and Hiro are on the Deveaux rooftop, there's footage shot from an angle that features very prominently a naked statue. LOLWTF.

Having heard how unreliable the other promos have been now I am kinda thinking that either Mylar is the cliffhanger or it's in the season finale :\
Well, duh. :p By now we're starting to get familiar with the usual tactics.

That's what Sylar's for :D
I didn't say "who is Mohinder going to sleep with," lulz.

my favorite quote overall:
"If you visit me one more time, Detective Parkman, I'll expect you to make an honest woman out of me." "That is the plan, actually." (Angela and Matt)

That was an amazing episode! I don't want the season finising after only 11 episodes! PLEASEEEEE

And NOAH: OMGGGGGGGGGGGG
