4x06: Tabula Rasa


OMFG!?
:O

Bonafide OMFG moment: Peter getting shot by the healer kid. Hee! I was never in fear for his life, but that was still all sorts of awesome.


Nathanites Never Say Die
Wtf happened to the body anywayz?!??!

asfkjsl;a I don't even know what to say. I'm kind of fascinated by the amnesiac formerly known as Sylar.

I think it's great that he still has Nathan's memories - which btw really speaks to the efficiency of Matt's abilities - and displays some typical Nathan behavior. You can't make me believe Sylar or Gabriel ever were this much of a flirt with the ladies XD And at the same time, he's also experiencing reactions very reminiscent of Gabriel - his childlike recoil at the sight of all the violence and death he has apparently wreaked; and it should be noted he remembered his mother.

I like that he didn't succumb to the impulse to end Captain Lubbock (~*~Hunger~*~ or otherwise, heh). What trips me up is that getting shot at again didn't bring up any memory either of Mohinder shooting Sylar in "Parasite," or future Peter shooting Nathan in "Powerless."

Another interesting thing is that the "arguments" used by Samuel to seduce ~Sylar* might just as well appeal to Nathan. As established ad vitam before, at the time of his death Nathan was bent on redempting himself - and here Samuel offers a blank slate, all sins forgiven. Not only that, he promises an unconditionally accepting family - while Peter ignoring ~Nathan's calls for weeks on the heels of last volume could have been perceived by ~Nathan as his brother never getting past what had transpired before. And of course, easy loverly conquests of the female variety.

As for original flavor Nathan Petrelli, my heart continues to ache for blissfully unaware Peter who believes everything in his life is fine. ;_;

*He gets a ~ before his name as well now, because he clearly isn't himself, lol.


Mohinder Watch
Have you seen a sexy geneticist?

You know Heroes, Samuel is a pleasant orator in his own right, but we fans call 'em Momologues for a reason. -_-


Okay, cool.
(I begrudgingly liked this...)

I pretty much liked everything this week! That's a first this season, for those of you keeping score. ;)

The Noah/Peter story was fantastic, and the kid who played Jeremy did a great job. I hope we get to see Noah in more situations like these, where he can indeed be an asset to helpless and/or out-of-control supers.

I loved everything Peter did or said for Hiro, how he'd do all he could to help him through the "transition" (his word), and then how he went to all that trouble to try and save him. Because he's his friend (again, his word). ♥

And Hiro helping Emma come to terms with her own power made for some of the most precious scenes ever.

Elsewhere, Samuel is an evil mastermind of the highest order who I'm sure could challenge Angela Petrelli herself every day of the week and twice on Sundays. And I'm lapping it all up! BAMF.


I call shenanigans!
(... but let me tell you how you still suck.)

Needs more Mohinder. Needs more Hesam. Edgar, feel free to DIAF whenever. O hai screwed-up time line! Did I mention "needs more Mohinder"? And also needs more Pasdar. (LOL, like I even need to say this.)


Brain Crumbs
Scattered thoughts

Starting with live thoughts as I was watching (these are some of the comments I made on the ongoing post @ [livejournal.com profile] fly_by_day last night)

- HAHA ~NATHAN HITTING ON THE BLONDE
- lol someone's name in the credits is Carlease. As in, car lease. LOL WHUT?
- HAY SYLAR, KRIS ALLEN CALLED. HE WANTS HIS SHIRT BACK.
- Why is Milo so adorable?
- Feat of magicalness AKHDSJAHLKJFDSAJHKLJ :D omg Hiro why so precious? <333333
- ...AND THE CORONER. lol poor Jeremy
- LOL WHO BRINGS A GUN TO THE CARNIVAL? ZEDDEMORE YOU GON' GIT SYLARED
- SRY2SAY I AM NOT EDGAR'S BIGGEST FAN :(

More:

Maybe the timing of Claire's visit to Noah was a little too convenient? I mean, I'm gonna let it slide for her cheery "Laundry day!" line, just because it made me want to sing Dr. Horrible again, which always feels me with glee. But watch it, writers.

I'm not sure how I feel about the magical blood not healing cancer. I guess what HRG said re:tumors regenerating isn't completely nonsensical, but then again, what are the odds of Adam never once getting a tumor in well over 300 years? And does that mean a cancer might just be the thing to kill Claire or Sylar? 'Cause that's just... bleak prospects, man.

RIP Winston Zeddemore. What a nice afternoon of family fun for his wife and presumed kids, eh? Edgar, shut yo face and get that mop your own lowly self.

Talking of lowly people, WAY TO GO LYDIA. What the hell? Maybe she fears any consequences of disobeying Samuel? Maybe she loves Samuel just that much? (Excuse me as I gag.) Maybe she's just a shameless promiscuous whore? SIGH.

This is where I reiterate my regret that Slow Burn isn't integrated in the main show. Those teases are nearly annoying out of context, yet I feel we're missing so much backstory and strokes of character for the carniefolk. (Yet I can't be bothered to watch the webisodes online. Hmm?!)


Hotass o' The Week
Half the reason I keep watching


This sexy desperado. Especially in this scene. (I picked this cap for the bonus lensflare, natch.)



HBIC o' The Week
Head Bitch In Charge

To the shock and horror of absolutely nobody, Samuel Sullivan! Please. As if anyone else even came close this week.

I'm starting to really believe what Mr. Knepper told me this summer. o_O


Ship o' The Week
lol romance?

~Nathan/blondes. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :P


Best line
I may or may not quote this irl

"Oh, go away! I have no more brodd left, NO. MORE. BRODD." LOL <3 (Though it also made me think of birran! and I wept a little in my soul, FML.)

My favorite, though, was when Peter said "my friend is dying, and it can't wait." ♥ And I also loved ~Sylar's "I remember flying," for reasons that should be obvious.


Most burning question?
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!! *flails*

WHERE IS MOHINDER GODSDAMNIT?

Can the rest of the season be this good consistently until the end? :O


Overall,
I loved this episode through and through. Nothing felt forced, the plot moved along nicely, and we still got some great character(-building) moments. A+!
