Heroes: Eclipse part 1: part 2 ???

My shortest Heroes post ever!

Does anyone else wonder if the Haitian can shut abilities off, can he also turn them back on?

While previous story elements point to Claire being "different", and thus being the catalyst, it had to originally be someone else. The synthetic powers had to be activated by someone before her birth. So could it have been the Haitian? Maybe it was Adam Munroe. Oh well...

I would also like to point out that Peter got Sylar's power, and Sylar got Peter's, so when they are gradually becoming closer to being the same person. This is set off a little by Peter attempting to be a Hero without powers.
But, then again, Sylar is trying to be good. Kind of.
Although Sylar could still be turning into Darth(ur) Petrelli.
Is this symbolic of the lines between hero and villain are blurring. Motivations are less clear, emotional relationships are giving some indications of where things are heading.
If Arthur, Peter, and Sylar can all absorb abilities, does this imply that Peter and Sylar can fully take them like daddy? I still am hooked on the comment that Noah made that Sylar is "transferring" an ability. Perhaps all three can give powers as well. Then again perhaps only Sylar can do it(or Peter if his abilities return).

Impotent Peter is also being less of an idiot than powered Peter. He absorbed Sylar's understanding, and what happens? He doesn't use it. Now he has no power, his brain works again. On the flip side, Nathan has lost his mind.

The eclipse is so messed up. I mentioned it already that an eclipse viewed everywhere is impossible. Hello, time zones? Not to mention that eclipses are only viewable in small areas in a straight line geographically.
So, if, IF, the eclipse is part of a catalyst for powers(ignoring powers previous to the eclipse, the older generation's abilities.(excluding I believe Kensei displayed his after the old one)), are there others out there now gaining powers???

Matt Parkman is getting better and better. In use of powers and in just being a guy doing guy things. Like when he tries getting Daphne back, and attempts to read her father's mind. It doesn't work and the reactions are amazing.
His powers are growing in that he was able to trick Knox. But he is also seeing Usutu. Is that Parkman's own power? Or Usutu's doing?
He already had been able to persuade like Eden.

I also was thinking about the descent of abilities. Matt has mental powers like his father, and the previously mentioned Peter and Sylar have Arthur's ability(at least very similar), so who else has similar things?
Hiro may have powers like his father. It has never been demonstrated what his father's power was. So I was thinking, on a super long shot here, could Claire actually be the lovechild of Meredith and Adam Munroe?

Post thought: This is going to make me sound like a complete bastard, but I can't help but giggle at the idea of Daphne hobbling around at super speed in her crutches. I was unaware that polio was a superpower. Someone out there has to have an ability that is harmful to the owner. Kind of like if Ted's power irradiated himself.

Nice idea of making Claire get tired when practicing. No healing means your muscles ache. Fatigue sets in. Weakness.

Future Sylar had Ted's nuclear power, I originally thought his earlier lost abilities returned, but then I thought, Duh!, he has been around future Peter, who has it. I am soooo dumb sometimes.

Last season Adam was a force of evil, and then he became an asswipe. From killer to comic relief. WTF?
Apparently only Petrelli's can be full-on bad guys.
There needs to be a villain that threatens both the good and bad guys. No sides for them, everyone needs to crap their pants in fear of this person. Remember the build up for the Nightmare man? Sylar started as bad, and Molly wasn't afraid of him. She feared the awareness of the Nightmare man. The things that could be done from an unknown entity.

I'm done for now.

  1. Heroes News:

    It sounds like “Heroes” creator Tim Kring may have joined the millions of fans who have grown bored with his series. He told last weekend’s audience at the 2008 Screenwriting Expo:

    "I was primarily fascinated by the origin story. Once the original story is over, and the character has no more questions about what's happening or existential drama, then the questions become just about plot, and then it becomes harder for me personally to connect to."

    Don’t expect Peter to ever again reference his season-two love interest, whom the super-compassionate male nurse abandoned to a nightmarish alternate future. From IGN.com’s report on the presentation:

    When the fan asked if Peter would ever acknowledge Caitlin or express any grief over what seems to be her dire fate, Kring replied, "No, we passed it. We leapfrogged it." He added that when the idea of returning to Caitlin was brought up, they asked, "Really? Are we going to risk that? We have enough stuff to [deal with]."

    And though Kring employs time travel constantly in the series, he advises others to avoid it:

    "It's a minefield that will make your mind explode. It will just drive you crazy. That's been something we've tried to use with a certain amount of rules - Not being able to change the future unless you go back. That device has been one of those that's just been so complicated for us."
