"Heroes" Rundown Chapter 1: "Four Months Later"

"Heroes" Rundown Chapter 1: "Four Months Later"

"The sun rises on a new dawn."

"Heroes" is so back! This week's season two premiere brought us right back to the lives of Claire, Hiro, Mohinder, Parkman, the Petrelli family and many more old and new characters. If I have any complaint it's that they crammed a ton of storylines into one season premiere. It was getting a little crowded for my tastes. And we didn't even see some of the old familiars at all, like Sylar, Niki, DL or Micah.

If you missed the episode and want to catch up on everything that happened, you can watch the full episode on NBC's website. For some of my thoughts and to share your own in the comments (spoilers ahead), then

  • So many people and heroes! We've got the Claire and HRG (whose first name we now know, but he will be HRG here) story and now Claire's boy West. We've got the stuff going on with Angela Petrelli and Hiro's father, and then Molly with her two dads, Mohinder and Parkman. Then there's Hiro himself and his "hero," the not-so-Japanese Takezo Kensei, and now there's the swordsmith's daughter to deal with. Next up we have the Honduras siblings, Maya and Alejandro, with Maya possessing a kind of violent power she can't seem to control. And finally, we have the Irish thugs who find Peter Petrelli with a fetching new haircut, chained up and looking frantic. Whew!
  • Claire and HRG continue to love being father-daughter. This week's episode brought us the scene that was filming when these pictures were taken. Will Claire and HRG’s relationship ever lose that whiff of incestuous desire? I think not.
  • I was about to write that I think that Molly is probably the most darling child on television... until she went crazy on Parkman. Also there's this: What is it about creepy kid drawings that scare the living daylights out of me?
  • First use of the word "hero" of Season Two: at minute 10, when Hiro meets Takezo Kensei.
  • Anyone else notice that Ando and Nathan bump into each other on the street? Were there other brushes between heroes that I didn't catch?
  • Mr. Muggles is back!
  • Nathan looks like a lumberjack. And not the sexy kind.
  • I love seeing Ando and George Takei again. It’s like seeing old buddies after a long absence. What? Do I watch too much TV or something?
  • HRG’s boss at the copy place has a douchey mustache to go with his personality. Also, this made me laugh: "The paper business is dog eat dog."
  • God is mentioned more than usual in this week's episode: first from Maya who says "God would not have done this to me without a chance for salvation," and then a Japanese woman leaving her ravaged village says "Is there no God to protect us?"
  • When I saw that West could fly, I actually thought to myself, "I wish my boyfriend could fly."
  • This stuff seems important: Hiro's father, Kaito Nakamura, says to Angela that there are nine left in The Company. He states that they are all very powerful and any of them could be leaving the photos with the "Godsend" symbol over the faces. Then, when Katio is attacked, he says "Of all of them, I never expected it would be you." I'm dying to know who it is! And I'm refusing to believe that Kaito is gone for good.

What did you think of the Season Two premiere of "Heroes"?

there's just one thing that got me thinking... when molly wake's up and parkman says "its okay it was just a dream" she says "omg SHE can see me".... but then she change to male genre... and the voice wants feminine at all... so is it a male or a female the new bad guy!????

I am so excited Heroes is back! I have to say that I was not thrilled with the season finale, and that they tend to have some gaping holes at times - and yet I still love it and am totally addicted to it. I didn't catch the Haitain's necklace, thanks for the heads up. I didn't mind not seeing Jessica/Nikki - that character irriates the heck out of me. I did think that was Ando and Nathan bumping into each other. Lot's of things crammed in - and lots of questions unanswered. Hopefully they'll account for everything.

Okay, I love Mr. Muggles!!!! I watched the part where Mrs. Bennet says his name in a funny voice like five times. It kills me. And I'm also glad Peter's emo hair is gone! I was really over the long bangs that hung in his face. I agree with the others who said West sketches them out. That exaggerated eye roll thing he did before flying off was super weird. Anyways, I love this show and I'm glad it's back.

I didn't understand the reference to God either. I also didn't get a creepy vibe at the end with West, I kind of felt like he was just watching over her. But I'm new to the show, so what do I know, lol.

I have to agree with Verily that West was way too "so what are you?" pretentious, but I think I'd be creeped out by him no matter what...his whole Peeping Tom thing was a little too stalker-ish. But otherwise I loved the episode. So glad that Heroes is back!

i cant remember who said what about nathan's fried face but i was thinking remember when peter and claire were in new york city peter made both of them disappear. maybe the same thing happend with nathan, peter passed on his ability to heal and thats why nathan looks 'normal'. just a thought.....

So I know that Nathan won the election, but is he not in office anymore? I mean it's only been 4 months, but he looked pretty bad.

Hmmmm....I loved the season premiere. I was sad the Parkman and his wife weren't any longer together, but she did cheat on him, so... And Molly, can you say freak?!?!!? What was that whole screamo deal about? Oh, and I love how getting blown up makes Milo more ripped and gives him a fresh new haircut. Nice one Editors! ;)

I was disappointed by the finale and not really thrilled by last night's premiere. I'm going to give this a few more weeks and then make my decision to stop watching or hang in there. Right now I don't know....

irish accents were't awful... they were accurate... that's the dialect of cork - so way to go to NBC on that. However, 15th century Japaneese people wouldn't have had monotheism in their culture, so the random reference to "God" by that woman is a little odd... Didn't make the connection about the Hatian and the Necklace until now... that crosses one off my list :)

I didn't like last night's episode. Weird.

my theory: peter is being used by the baddies to kill off the nine. maybe it was just the hoodie on takei's killer looking particularly emo that made me think peter would make sense, fitting into his amnesia and all that.

Stacygirl and I seem to be on the same page about that ;)

i think West is a bad guy. he's working for the company that HRG and Mohinder are trying to fight. did you see that evil look on his face as he was watching claire? it was creepy. IMHO, he's a total bad guy. anyone else agree?

Just my thoughts: Nathan killed Takei and Hiro is the hero in the legend. I saved it so I get to watch it again. Too much information to handle. So glad for tivo...i didn't have to sit through the nissan commercials. :)

So I didn't think that was Nathan that Ando ran into... I thought it was the invisible man. And I had initially thought that he would have slipped the picture into the newspaper when Ando bumped into him. But I don't like to think that. I liked that man and his accent.

What was with West spying on Claire? Is he the token stalker/ blackmailer for this season? I can't look at Molly the same way, after she yelled at Parkman. And I gotta wait a week for the next episode? Boo! But, better than the whole summer.

I am so glad Heroes is back. I've missed all of the characters so much, even Mohinder. I'm really glad to see that James Kyson Lee is now a regular cast member as Ando is my 2nd fave character (behind Nathan). I'm not too keen on some of the new characters. I do like Kensei (the actor just rocks) and Maya & Alejandro. I did not like Molly, who seemed like a precocious brat (even with her big bad guy problems). I think the problem is that the Heroes writers do not know how to write convincing lines for children. And I really really hated West, who is too emo for me to stomach. Anyone who has to continually postulate whether you're an alien or a robot seems judgmental and pretentious. I wonder if the Swordsmith's daughter is the real hero behind the Kensei legend.
