Heroes Recap

Heroes Rundown Chapter 10: "Truth and Consequences"

While I liked this week's episode of Heroes enough, there were so many characters involved I found it hard to care about any of them. I am relieved, however, that we're starting to get to the collective goal of making sure the mutated virus doesn't spread to the majority of the world's population. The heroes very much needed a unifying game plan so they could stop flitting about with useless people (cough-cough-West-cough) and get to the good stuff.

Also, is it terrible that I was totally relieved when the promos for next week said two of the heroes will die? No, don't answer that. I don't want to know. To check out some of my thoughts on this week's Heroes and to share your own (spoilers, ahoy!)


  • Bob says to Elle that she has to take responsibility for what's happened and do her part by keeping watch over Claire. Taking responsibility, eh Bob? That would be the pot talking to the kettle, I think. Isn't this whole virus crisis largely Bob's fault?
  • There are some sweet Hiro/Ando moments this week, like when Hiro tells Ando, “You are like a hamster making a nest.”
  • Oh, now I get why Maya is acting like a complete and total idiot — she thinks Sylar understands what it's like to make a mistake and murder innocent people. Mmm... still foolish.
  • Speaking of Maya, I don't care for her character all that much but I think she's really, really pretty.
  • Also, why do people always chat for a while before shooting someone in the head? It leaves so much time for other people to come by and ruin things.
  • Wow! Micah can land a punch! That part was awesome.
  • I kind of love the whole Micah-and-Monica crime fighting team. It's much more basic superheroes in the everyday world stuff. Though I didn't like it so much when the thugs hit Monica and threw her in a van. That part is genuinely disturbing.
  • However, Micah is the cutest thing ever, what with his "I told the lights I needed them to be off for a while," and "You're St. Joan!"
  • This episode has tons of pretty much everyone (except Parkman, Nathan and Angela Petrelli) and yet not enough Mr. Muggles. He is, however, present at the scattering of the ashes.
  • I love how Elle has become like the Sawyer (from Lost) of this show with all her nicknames. This week's best Elle line: "Watch who you're shoving, Pom-Pom."
  • And finally some of the old heroes are coming together again! That is a great way to end the episode, with Hiro rushing toward Peter with his sword, Peter's electric hand extended.

What did you think of this week's Heroes?

Urgh. Mohinder is such a tool.... like the definition of tool. I liked him before and now it's just aargh... why?! And Maya too.... the wonder twins were a bad bad idea for the show. Actually, everyone's basically a tool this season.. Peter, Maya, Mohinder... I hate to sound so juvenile but it's unfortunately true.

Forget Heroes, did anyone see Journeyman last night? Now that's the show! Anyhow, I missed half of the show because it got boring. But I guess I should have watched, I wanted to see Monica and Micah take on the thugs. I guess I will have to watch it online.

This episode was awesome. Im kind of hoping that its Maya and Monica who die, I'm not attached to them and i hatee Maya, could she be any more gullible. Nicky is bound to be one of the heroes who dies because she has the virus and we all know Mohinder is going to go save Molly. How could Sylar get to her!? I love Molly and I deff dont want anything to happen to her. Im too attached to Parkman and the Petrelli brothers. Adam Monroe is my facoritee! ahhh i cant believe this might be the end!

Oh when Elle was in the car and she fumbled around. Classic!! but other than that is seemed a bit boring! Sylar needs to die or something he's not a good antagonist to me

After 400 years, don't you think Adam would lose some of that British accent? My dad has only been in the country 20 and his accent is fading... :-D I think Peter needs to go next season; he almost blew up NYC, and now he's going to help Adam release the virus. Can't the writers make someone else responsible?

yes everyone is incredibly stupid and ignorant this season. but maya.. well i can't blame her because she thinks sylar is trying to help. but peter come on! you know hiro! and hiro knows the truth.. why are they fighting? god i love hiro lol. so cute (: yeah claire needs to be more of a badass. that part with elle in the car was so funny and sad. i actually felt for her... poor little messed up girl. sylar creeps me out but i must admit he looked good with his shirt off haha who's gonna die next week? aahhh!

i'm not sure if Adam is evil yet or not. i think he could go either way. he could be telling the truth about wanting to destroy the virus, especially know that Peter told him that it kills 93% of the world's population. Monica... she's dumb. she couldn't have just left out of that balcony she went into when those guys came in the house? it seemed like she stayed in one room the whole time, so why did she have to hide in the ceiling? dumb. i know they have to make her storyline go somewhere, but why does she have to make a typical dumbgirl move like that?

Thank you Brendelwoman! That's exactly what I was thinking the whole time I was watching the episode last night. Everyone this season just seems so naive and dumb. It's so frustrating to watch!!I want to kick Peter in the balls for being so stupid, and Maya just needs to die already.

The only thing I have to say... Adam is walking around with the best hero out there, Peter. Which is a nice plot decition. But, Peter can read minds again which he showed last night. Don't you think he may have "heard" once from the mind of Adam that he wants to kill everyone or even something along those lines? Hey Peter flex your hero muscles a bit!

It is hard to say who is more evil: Sylar or Adam? On the one hand, Sylar is merely koo-koo-bananas and only wants to kill people with abilities so he can have them for himself. On the other hand, Adam is really old and has nicely shaped eyebrows and only wants to kill EVERYBODY! I liked it when Elle was spotted in her car and she kept fumbling around with her car keys and her Big Gulp. Very Professional Assassin-like.

PS - I'm not sure how "Hero" is defined exactly, but I don't think that either HRG or Mohinder are Heroes because they don't have powers. HRG may have gained the power to heal from the infusion of Claire's blood, but killing off HRG would be a seriously bad move for NBC since he's one of the best characters.

I, too, am annoyed by how all the characters seem to be so willing to deny what's obvious to the rest of us. But I also think that things that are seriously obvious to us (Sylar's BAD, Maya!) are really not that obvious to the characters. Maya, who I do find annoying and who's purpose in the series I have yet to determine, has been floundering with her ability to murder people and Sylar has been able to convince her (though, duh, not us) that he can help. Why *wouldn't* she run to his arms? As for Peter, he kinda forgot everything and Adam was able to convince him to work together. We all know that Adam has some ulterior motives, but how is Peter supposed to be able to tell? And finally: Mohinder. Along with HRG, his character has consistently added the most tension to the plot, and as much as I sometimes question his decision-making, he at least serves a purpose amongst all the Heroes.

Yay, one twin is out! Come on Sylar, be your bad self and kill the other one! I love Micah so much...he's adorable! As interested as I am in Monica and her power, I don't think her character is used enough to its fullest potential. She needs to get out of town and fight! Seriously though, it would be nice is she were more in the heart of the action more rather that along the outer corners of it. 2 Heroes will fall? I'm scared! I have a funny feeling one of them may be HRG since we were so prepared to lose him over the course of the season. Maybe the painting was a fake-out only to lead up to another end for him? I hope that's not the case..... Hiro is very cute, and I love it when he takes charge! He's a really brave and wise character. Hopefully he won't die either!

I think the thing that bothers me about last night's show was how stupid everyone was. Peter's ignorance is hindering him. Since Hiro is someone he knows I think he would be willing to talk it out rather than fight. And this is the second person to accuse Adam of being a bad guy so I think a reasonable person would listen. And Mya's stupidity was the other poor plot line. I am hoping she gets her brains sucked out simply because she is stupid. And then of course there is Dr. Suresh....

you're right beansandsyke, I guess i hadnt thought of that although making sylar very dangerous just adds suspense and isn't that how it usually goes? a weaker heroe trying to find a way to defeat a more powerful being?

That girl who plays Maya is on the cover and inside of Men's Health this month. She certainly is beautiful! Wish they hadn't given her SUCH a stupid storyline.

are you kidding me ? who cares about molly? yeah she sucks but if sylar could get her power. he could get many many many more and thats horrible her dieing would be bad. but only if sylar can eat powers again one wonder twin down at least maya is annoying but man she could turn evil with that power.. maybe her and sylar can have evil horrible babies some day. they better not kill hiro i love that peter is so so stupid about adam to bad claire isnt more of a badass she needs to do more than heal and cry.
