Heroes, 3x15: Trust And Blood

Hoshit. I think our show is awesome again, guys. :O

It's become a bit trickier to divide up recaps by character, as their stories come together so gracefully. In a big ball of blazing awesomeness! Hee. In case you couldn't tell, I'm really excited by this volume.

Sylar hasn't been this creepy since that time he made Agent Hanson point her gun at her own head. LOL REMEMBER THAT TIME? omg. I'm glad to see him return to baser instincts, now that he has decidedly missed the train to Redemption Town. His line about that kid Luke wanting nothing more than to see his mother's blood all over the floor? Chills. HOLLA, VIRGINIA GRAY! Now, I doubt their road trip could ever achieve the amounts of epic reached by the Momo 'n Zane US Mini-Tour 2006, but I'm interested enough to see where it's going.

Now, Nathan. Well, at least he's not as evil as Sylar? Ha. You know you're grasping when that's the best defense you can come up with. It's not, really, but the thinking part of my brain has been short-circuited by how scalding he looked throughout the entire episode. Just look at that motherfucker. Hottt! I mean, even though he hasn't quite wisened up yet, I just see that White Shirt Of Righteousness And ~Subtle Foreshadowing~ and I know everything will be alright in the end. (i.e. Shut up and let me have my faith, plzkthx.)

Tracy is interesting. I think I like her. I think she could have definitely sold Peter out. Loved everything about that scene, too. Peter took Nathan's flight! :D So, in a roundabout way, Nathan did save Peter, y/y/stfu? And by the by, I'd figured as much from the previous ep, but it's good that Peter's new ability has been Officially Clarified.

But how hardcore is The Hunter? Oh lawd, he's totally coming after my bb Nathan in 3... 2... 1... SADNESS. Oh well, as long as he doesn't kill him, I guess only good stuff can come of it. Either way: flailytiems ahead!

HRG's motivations just got a lot clearer. Old, but hey, there's a reason classics are classics; who am I to argue? Plus, it makes for excellent dynamics with Nathan re: Claire. I kind of admire how she omitted to say she snuck into the plane after "Daddy Number Two" freed her and sent her home, btw. But back to HRG, omg, how much win is he? I know he probably only spared Peter for Claire's sake, so that Nathan's in his debt, but that's still nine kinds of awesome. I guess families aren't sacred anymore. Yaydrama!

I have to mention the Matt/Mohinder element! Here I thought I was over it completely, but when Mohinder was imploring Hiro to save himself, I couldn't refrain from translating as "gtfo n00b, i need to ~comfort~ my ex nao, kthx! :D" Also, "Matt, that's not us! It's not you!" kind of has me drawing hearts all over them all over again, I'm ~sorry! It still puzzles me that they're not talking about Molly, though. Shouldn't they be freaking out about her safety, particularly at this time?

Hiro = so cute. Aww. Not that I'm surprised by this, but it never fails to charm me. Oh, Hiro-kun, how so adorable? <3 Ando and Daphne were a great duo as well - and for some reason it amuses me infinitely to imagine them running over water. (I have no trouble with the logistics of it, if the boost Ando gives her is enough to move them in time.)

I don't believe Daphne's dead, so, I'm not even in shock or distress or any of those fun things over that bit. I'll say this, though, if she is well and truly gone: massive fail, show. With Tracy captured and Claire bummin' it out with the worst of 'em in Costa Verde (talking of which, Sandra Bennet, wtf happened to "I dream of you going to college someday"? Hmm?), I really think Team Fugitives could use some more girl power.

Having said that, the scene wherein she gets shot down was kickass to the nth degree. And I am SO GLAD that Matt retains his original abilities, omg! And ooh, he wants ~revenge~! Another step towards dark!Matt is always a step in the right direction, if you ask me. (Lol, sorry Momo bb.)

LOL @ the text messages. Wouldn't it be the best thing ever if Rebel was Hana Gitelman? Dude. I would flip my jizz! :O And while I'm here dreaming away: if it could be Adam Monroe, I think my LIFE would be COMPLETE. If it's Angela, I will LOL. If, of all people, it is Nathan, I will LOL till I cry. (And also maybe squee like a brainless pathetic teenybopper, but what can ya do? XD) If it's Sylar, I will LOL and then I will despair at the avalanche of Sylar/Claire horrendous and phony fanwank that is sure to follow. =_=

Anyhows! I think that's all I have for this episode. Bonus neither-here-nor-there comment: I still love it when Isaac gets mentioned by name. :D

Polls to follow later tonight.

Two unrelated questions:
  1. Was there a new House episode? There was supposed to be, but I can't find it anywhere. Thanks, Tami! <3
  2. Do you watch Battlestar Galactica? If so, hop on over to [livejournal.com profile] hobbitofkobol's episodic poll for "Blood On The Scales" right now! :D

House (as well as any other shows airing at 8PM EST) were pre-empted by President Obama's press conference.

I want to hate Nathan but I can't, he's just too hot :( Bad, shallow fangirl, baaad

The Hunter creeps me out. He already did when he was Juliet's husband on Lost. They should just run over him with a bus!!!

lol I totally thought "Matt and Mohinder are reunited!!!"

I don't want Daphne to be dead :( Why do they keep killing the tiny blonde characters I do like? Also, because Brea Grant is awesome.

And Team Fugitives is such a Boys Club!! Come ON!

Haha, I know right? It's not just the hotness, though. I mean, "I told you to stay away from my daughter! Rawr!" was a definite squee moment for me. As was his bashful thanks to Bennet for not shooting Peter. Color me naive, I honestly believe he thinks he's working for the greater good. Just in a really morally-liquid way. XD

LMAO, I totally forgot Zeljko Ivanek was Juliet's husband! :O I kept thinking, that guy was on Alias at some point, right? And also that he took House hostage and almost killed Thirteen, lol. But yes, Juliet's husband! His death totally shocked me at the time! :O

I'm pretty sure Daphne isn't dead. They would've made more of a fuss over it if she were. OMG, maybe she's Rebel?!

I want a girl to join Team Fugitives so I can live vicariously through her, LMFAO! ;)

If she was able to run free, then I can definitely see her doing something like that... I can't imagine she would abandon Matt, Hiro and Ando to fend for themselves, yet she'd be physically incapacitated enough that she couldn't go on a rescue mission by herself. Hmm.

OTOH, it's just as possible that Nathan's team found her and brought her wherever it is they intended to bring the specials in the first place. (Building 26, was it?)

I do think Nathan thinks he's doing the right thing. Like Gaeta!

maybe WE can join Team Fugitives? hehe

From: [identity profile] gossy16.livejournal.com
Aww. Well, I just hope he doesn't meet a premature end as tragic as Gaeta's. <\3

Ha, that sounds like a good plan! Except I don't really want to hurt Nathan, lmao.

I seriously missed Heroes being awesome. And Volume 4 is TOTALLY the return of awesomeness!!!!!!!

I look forward to the polls. They always make my day:):)

OMG! Is it Monday again yet?!!!

I'm positive Daphne's not dead. She's too awesome to die! They've probably got her locke dup somewhere.

That's what I think. Or she was rescued somehow. But I mean, Nathan did tell his mother "some of the prisoners escaped" (emphasis mine), so I suppose it makes sense if his team got to her and retrieved her. Which would also give Matt motivation not to just storm the building guns ablaze and blindly kill anything that moves, lol.

Date: 2009-02-10 10:09 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] thelxiepia.livejournal.com
Yes, exactly. I just hope she doesn't get caught in the crossfire between Team Fugitives and Nathan's goons. :( That would REALLY suck.

From: [identity profile] solitune.livejournal.com
Your Heroes episode reviews are the highlight of my day. xD

As usual, I agree with most of what you said and I def don't think that Daphne is dead. That would just really suck. I truthfully don't know HOW she could be alive since Team Fugitives (LOL I love that) peaced out and I don't see how or why Nathan would save her, but I'm gonna keep hope alive!

ALSO WTF at the homoerotic road trip??!? This is gonna be full of lolz and bad one-liners, I just know it.

Date: 2009-02-10 09:06 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] gossy16.livejournal.com
Aw, shucks! :D

Well, as reiterated in this episode, Nathan never had any intention to kill any one of them, so if I had to guess I'd say it is possible his team retrieved her. And didn't she get shot in the shoulder? That's survivable, right? Keep hope alive, definitely.

This is gonna be full of lolz and bad one-liners, I just know it.
Haha, yeah. It probably is. XD And after a while, Sylar'll be like, "Sigh. I miss Mohinder. He ~cooks~."

Looks like I need a Season 1 refresher course. I can't remember half the things you alluded to in the Sylar section. *wibble*

From: [identity profile] gossy16.livejournal.com
Aww! The thing with FBI Agent Audrey Hanson (Clea DuVall) was before Zach Quinto played Sylar, so you get a free pass on that one. We just never saw his face. It was just after Matt found Molly. While he was grilled by Audrey (re: how did he know how to find the girl, etc.), Sylar broke into the building to kidnap the girl. Matt and Audrey chased after him and when he was seemingly cornered, he TK'd Audrey's gun right to her temple, with her finger on the trigger. Then Matt shot a round of bullets in his chest and he fell to the floor, then ROSE UP AGAIN really slowly and creepily, and disappeared who-knows-how. (It's actually one of the things that bug me, how his early all-powerfulness hasn't ever been explaned. We know he didn't have regen at that point.)

The "mother's blood all over the floor" thing was a direct reference to episode 1x21, when after accidentally killing his mother, Sylar painted 'the bombpocalypse' on the floor with her blood.

And you remember his and Mohinder's visit to the super-hearing lady, right?

From: [identity profile] promiseoftin.livejournal.com
OK, I thought the agent was Clea DuVall! OK, yes, I do remember that one. I BARELY remember Sylar and his mom. I mean, I recall he killed her and made all the snowglobes go crazy, but I don't remember him painting with her blood. EW.

But yeah, road trip, FTW! :)

But how hardcore is The Hunter? Oh lawd, he's totally coming after my bb Nathan in 3... 2... 1... SADNESS. Oh well, as long as he doesn't kill him, I guess only good stuff can come of it. Either way: flailytiems ahead!

He's totally gonna catch on to Nathan -- and I think Nathan's "outing" will be the start of Nathan's ~~redemption~~ arc this season. As I see it. ... if he isn't Narthur... :|

If, of all people, it is Nathan, I will LOL till I cry. (And also maybe squee like a brainless pathetic teenybopper, but what can ya do? XD)

That's an interesting notion, but idk. Why would Nathan start some shit and then tell Claire he's fighting it? Unless Nathan knew the powers were going to go public anyway and was trying to do some damage control, IDK!! Either way, I want to see more of Nathan's motivations for all of this.

Ando and Daphne were a great duo as well

I kinda want them to hook up. :x

*nods* I firmly agree. We might even, gods forbid, get some modicum of woobiefication (if he gets the cold shoulder from Peter et al., which, in and of itself, would not be shocking).

I just keep thinking of those on-set pictures (you know the ones) and Adrian's recent TV.com interview (with Masi), and that leads me to conclusions where Nathan no longer is the great antagonist of the volume. I think. So that makes me hopeful that we'll see him regain some sense and/or control of what he's doing.

As for Rebel, I've no idea, really. Just tossing ideas in the air, but I've come to believe that with Heroes, impossible is nothing... even the crackiest of cracky plots. :-#

Unless Nathan knew the powers were going to go public anyway and was trying to do some damage control
Dude. That would be a reveal of oh-hai-I'm-working-with-the-FBI-to-take-down-Linderman proportions. Nay, much more gigantic, actually. I don't know if he'd go as far as he is going if he were just faking, though. But ~impossible is nothing~! lols.

Either way, I want to see more of Nathan's motivations for all of this.
Word, but then again, I always want to see more of his motivations. XD I actually think it's all in the "Eclipse" episodes. And also (I keep forgetting), his ~mission from God~. :/

ETA: Ando/Daphne, yes plz! They would be amazing together. :D

The show is genuinely, objectively good again. It makes me very happy.

The Peter+Mohinder+Matt+Hiro+Ando teamup is as amazing as I thought it would be, from the promos. ♥

Hee! It is rather heartwarming to see our patience has not been entirely in vain. :D

I love that all those guys are working together. I wonder what would happen if Ando were to boost Peter's powers. Might he then be able to hold on to several powers at once? Maybe he wouldn't have to touch anymore? (My keen interest in their dynamic is largely based on their fantastic "on my own, I'm not much of anything" moment in S1. Aw.)

I really liked this episode and I agree with what you said here :D

Nathan is just too damn hot for his own good *fans self* Guess there's an opening for a new PA then? *wink wink*

Mostly I was squeeful because Sylar said my name a few times-I'm a nerd XD

Aw, he did! Ha, I probably shouldn't hold my breath for any Adelines to appear pop up on the show. XD

Daphne's alive, I swear. Dude, the scene would have been a lot more tragedic if she actually bought the farm.
