"Heroes" Recap: Episode 13, "The Fix"

"Heroes" Recap: Episode 13, "The Fix"

This week's episode of "Heroes" revolved around parent-child relationships: Two of the heroes' parents are revealed, one hero is going to have a baby, and we learn more about Micah's power.

The episode starts off where last week's ended: The invisible man is choking Peter Petrelli, amazed and angry that Peter can see him. Peter pleads with him, saying the city’s in danger, to which invisible guy replies, “Then you better leave town.” Peter wants to learn how to control his ability, but the invisible man says he can’t teach him anything.

Next, we see Niki wake up in her padded cell. A psychiatrist named Dr. Witherson thinks Niki has multiple personality disorder and says she can help. Niki is reluctant at first but ultimately agrees to work with the psychiatrist for her son Micah's sake. Dr. Witherson says she'll need to speak with Jessica in order for anything to work. To find out what happens with Micah and the other characters,

Micah observes D.L. struggling to pay the rent, so he finds an ATM machine, puts his hand on it, and coaxes money out. In an earlier episode, Micah brought an out-of-order pay phone back into operation, so it looks like he has the power to manipulate machinery. Addressing an astonished D.L., he says with a winning grin: “You know how you and mom have a secret? Well ... I have a secret too.”

Meanwhile, mind-reader Matt Parkman and his wife Janice are getting along as she starts to believe in his power. The police department holds a review hearing to discuss Parkman's odd behavior, including his insistence that he can read minds. Parkman lies and says he made it all up, and they suspend him for 6 months. When he gets home, Janice “thinks” the news of her pregnancy to him, and there is much rejoicing. A new little half-hero!

Sylar, strapped to a bed, appears to be dying. Mr. Bennet, however, won't have it, instructing the scientist guy to keep bringing him back. "When he dies it’ll be on my terms, not his,” Mr. Bennet says in his creepy way.

Hiro and Ando, picking up their rental car, are chased by thugs who catch up with them and grab Ando. Hiro tells them to release the “un-special Ando,” but instead, they take the both of them. Once in the van, a man says in Japanese that he believes Hiro has a power, but then states, “I work for someone who has true power. A man who knows what you’re up to and wants you to stop.” They arrive at some dark and sketchy place and Hiro assures Ando that he will never betray him. The van door opens to reveal... Hiro’s father (George Takei)!

Nathan Petrelli pays a visit to Mohinder, and they establish that they need to find Peter. Mohinder says, “Peter’s DNA allows for a blend, like colors in a mosaic,” meaning Peter has the ability to mimic those powers around him. Nathan wants Mohinder to alter Peter's gene, and Mohinder wants to study Peter, saying he is the most important person on the List.

They find Peter at the apartment, but he runs out the door. Nathan and Mohinder think he’s flown aways, so they leave, but we see that the invisible man has caught Peter and the two are invisible together. The invisible man says he can help Peter control his abilities, but it’ll be hard. Peter asks how many people he's taught before and the man doesn’t answer.

Claire and Zach try unsuccessfully to find some dirt on Mr. Bennet. When Mr. Bennet comes in they pretend to be biology partners studying the manatee. Claire hangs up some wind chimes outside her window as a signal to the Haitian that she has an emergency. She meets up with the Haitian and asks him if he knows who her real parents are. He says he knows nothing of her father and that her mother died in an explosion 14 years ago.

Claire and Zach find an old newspaper record about an apartment fire in Kermit, TX, in which 21-year-old Meredith Gordon and her 18-month-old daughter died. Claire says innocently to her dad, “Did you know that all three varieties of manatee are vulnerable to extinction?” which seems to refer to how the heroes might be in danger of extinction. Mr. Bennet says he’ll always be there for her, then notices the wind chimes and stiffens. Phoning all the Gordons in Kermit, Claire eventually finds her birth mother, who light a cigarette by causing fire to jump from her fingertips.

Mrs. Bennet tells her husband that Lyle has been very absent-minded lately. Just then, Mr. Bennet learns that Sylar is dead. As the scientist guy prepares Sylar's body "for shipping," Sylar opens his eyes. Mr. Bennet goes to Sylar's cell and finds him alive, calmly asking, “How’s Claire?”

I can't wait for next week when we learn more about Hiro's dad, Claire's mom, and Claire's "daddy." In the meantime, what did you think of this week's "Heroes"?

That would be interesting if Linderman ended up being Claire's father. That could explain why her biological mother "died" in an explosion. Possibly, she faked her death to get away from Linderman??

Hmmm.. that's cool if they keep Sylar around. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I look forward to Mondays now.

I love this series (Thank goodness to NBC that they put it online!) Claire's Dad is just weird, I like to think he's a bad guy.

I read that Tim Kring (the creator) and/or some of the writers said they had planned to kill Sylar at the end of this season, but have reevaluated and he'll probably end up sticking around. Seems like fans really like him. He's my favorite to watch. Someone is supposed to be killed in the next episode - I don't know if it's a hero or not. Apparently it's someone shown in the first few minutes of the first episode My husband is betting on Claire's adoptive mom or Mr Muggles, lol. I'm totally excited about the Invisible guy. I love the hinting about the others before Peter. He seems to know a lot about their history.

I like the invisible man. Hopefully he'll be sort of like an Obi-wan Kenobi sort of guy, but I think he'll be some sort of trickster or something. Maybe some guy looking to benefit from the Petrellis somehow. His comment about Peter's crappy apartment and how Peter should be able to get something better with his sort of family connects sort of puts up a red flag for me. Claire's father could be Linderman. That would be interesting. I'm really glad Sylar is out and about now. He's way too cool of a baddie to stay locked up. This is probably terrible, but I can't wait to see which hero he takes out next. I'm sort of resigned to the notion that Sylar will probably die by the end of the season, so I'll take what I can get from him. Really cool how he stopped his own heart and started it up again like a clock. As for the Heroes, I'm getting tired of the whole Jessica/Nikki thing and that kid, although the kid has some cool powers. Their storyline is the least engaging for me.

"Dead" might describe Mr. Bennett the best after Sylar's done with him! But you are contstantly flipping between "maybe he's, definitely bad!" You think the psychiatrist has powers? That would make it interesting! I wondered why nobody was like "She's a pyscho and will probably kill you!" (You know, like the armed guard who she almost killed?)

actually, my husband thinks Claire has the same father as Peter and Nathan, Im not so sure. I definatly think the lady at the mental hospital has a power. I get the feeling she knows a lot more then we think. She will get to Jessica. I still can not figure out what is the deal with Claires dad. He is so weird, is he good or bad? I think that is they key thing going on now.

Geez, I was starting to think you weren't going to recap!! Yeah! Obviously, Mr. Bennett did Claire's parents a 'favor' turning their lives over - and taking their baby - sure it was 'for their own good." I can't wait to see who Claire's dad is!! My man thinks it's Nathan, but I think that's ridiculous. So, did anyone else "apply" at the Primatech Paper website?? No? Well, I did. First, they sent me an email saying they were always looking for special people with unique abilities...then today I got an email saying: subject: more than paper... much more Want to try to get into his files too? Go to, find the helix hidden in the logo on the 'About us' page. Enter the username bennet and password claire. The password to get into my file is HGghx11a. Get 2 know me. I got kicked out after reading about the new character...pretty sure I was supposed to, but someone else let me know if you get anything else. Why does this show INSIST on turning me into such a huge DORK??
