Heroes: Eris Quod Sum: notes and thoughts

Starting with Peter, I would just like to say, what the hell.
After his fall instead of getting a blood transfusion from Claire he just forgets that that's exactly how he fixed Nathan's wounds after going nuclear over New York. Even with the reminder standing right in front him.
As for the falling out the window and surviving, many things could have happened. 1. Sylar saved him. This is probably the most likely. He went to Pinehearst with that intention anyhow. 2. Arthur saved him. Possible, but less likely. He does have the abilities, but does this fit in with his master plans? 3. Peter saved Peter. Very unlikely, as he seems to be stuck in a position of being able to do absolutely nothing for himself. Maybe his abilities were only suppressed. With the Haitian's powers in the background, a halting of Arthur's theft of powers could have been an autonomic response, like the automatic healing. Things to think about: Peter may have an ability not yet fully used-He saw the invisible man before he wanted to be seen, and when Hiro froze time in season 2 Peter was unaffected. Sylar also moved in season 1 with time frozen, so maybe there is a subtle muting power not shown that they both inherited. Sylar regained telekinesis after the loss from the Shanti virus, and future Sylar has Ted's power. Which implies that absorbed powers may be regained. So there may be a very slim chance his powers are regrowing.
The loss of his powers, at least currently, would explain why he was scarred in the future, and why Claire could shoot him to death. Maybe future Claire was out of range of Peter. Or maybe her dyed hair has the power sapping drug as an ingredient. But, then again future Peter has other powers, courtesy of the labs of Pinehearst and Mohinder?
I've got to give the baby Petrelli credit, he sure is proactive in at least attempting to get things done.
Oh, and Future Peter is a butterfly killer. Stepping all over them and Effin' up the future.

Parkman pulled a pretty nice trick on Knox, making him think they were dead. Once Knox leaves he tells Daphne his dad could do that. Perhaps he did do that. Or Arthur for that matter. There is also a nice change of pace that Parkman is the only character showing growth in a fairly realistic manner. He is definitely getting better at deception.
Being deceived is another story. Or maybe not. Future Daphne was still with Pinehearst. Although I believe Usutu told him the future he saw was already changed, so maybe he thinks he is changing it. But then again, maybe he knows Daphne is still working for them now.
When will he get the talent for knowing when others are "looking for him"? Like when Molly was looking for the "Nightmare Man"(Maury), assuming it's because of her thoughts, being a mental function.
When is Molly returning anyway?
I also noticed that when Parkman took the Usutu drug, he needed headphones(music), as Usutu did at least once, but Hiro went out without it. Possibly something to watch for?
There is always the chance that the turtle is running everything from behind the scenes.

Hiro Nakamura should stop being an idiot. He swore off going back in time to change things, but if he didn't come back from the future in season 1 Peter would have blown New York to hell. Besides that, did he really change history? Didn't his lady friend promise him that she would tell the stories he grew up with, thus history remains the same?
Time travel has so many issues. In heroes the past(the time from Kensei until now) has remained, so far, unchanged in any noticeable way. The present(which is the future's past) is somehow malleable. Subject to alterations. Why doesn't anyone go back before this started, after much preparation and planning of course, and change things? As of now Hiro and Arthur are the only two that could do this.
When does Hiro become awesome Hiro from season 1? Or was the newest incarnation of future Hiro the current path he is on? Maybe Future Ando killed a shape shifter. He was arguing with him about the formula, but what would having it matter if others(Ando) had already received powers? Doesn't make sense.

As a geneticist, Mohinder sucks big time. He spends season 1 trying to finish his father's work. Moves on to the Shanti virus, a sort of extension of the work. Then forgoes all scientific process because of an epiphany, and injects himself with something completely untested. Smooth move genius. Now he is turning into a spiderman ripoff monster.
Did Arthur Petrelli refuse to take Mohinder's mistake, or just make Mohinder question his having it.
He also appears perfectly willing to start testing on humans. Way to mull that one over. Even when it's on Peter, someone trying to stop the coming turbulence.
Then he doesn't believe the future can be changed, even though he has seen it done by stopping New York from being levelled.

I don't hate Elle as much now as I did in season two. She has become more down to Earth. More relatable with her current state of affairs. With her abilities going haywire, she has no where to go without daddy covering her ass. No safety net.
The powers malfunctioning may be from Sylar slicing her head open, but he usually preserves the brain for inspection. Could the Shanti virus still be going? Or mutated?
Her choice to take aerial public transport, instead of driving, a really bright idea. Where is homeland security when needed? Hey, everybody, LOOK AT ME, electricity is discharging from my body and putting people in jeopardy.

Now for Claire. Claire should shut the hell up. Ohhh nooo, I can't feel pain. Boo-Hoo. Looks like someone bought a first-class ticket on the complaint train. (Whoo-Whooooo). Pain is a function to tell the body that something is wrong. If you heal from pretty much everything, pain is unnecessary.
While the chance she may lose other feelings is there, why waste it whining. She still has emotions, which are working in overdrive. Teenage angst in overdrive.
She has also developed an undeserved sense of courage. She can't be hurt in the traditional sense, so she decided she was going to be a vigilante now. So what if her step father, Noah, has been doing this since before she was born? What does he know? So what if you can heal, you may not be so lucky with other specials. Black hole guy? Yeah, you got lucky. Puppet master guy? Super freakin' lucky.
I seriously hope that someone shows her that non-physical pain can be much worse than what she is dealing with. True pain.

Noah is slowly returning to what he was in the first series, a badass. He knows how to deal with these people. Fear is as much his weapon as it is for Knox. When is his old partner, the Haitian, going to reappear. Team juggernaut of Primatech.

Knox. The most useless power ever. Not the super strength from fear, but the ability to tell when someone is afraid, and feel the need to say it. Sure, Daphne was afraid, she was surrounded by a group of people that could kill her.

Nathan and Tracey are going visit Arthur to do what, exactly? Get dead maybe.

Whatever. I am done with this post my fingers hurt a little.

  1. also.. can't sylar look into peoples past and see everything they've done. so why doesn't he just do that with each of his parents to see which one is truly bad?
