Heroes -- "How To Stop An Exploding Man" -- 05.21.2007


"How To Stop An Exploding Man"

With Isaac's horrible predictions unfolding before them, the everyday people with extraordinary abilities face moments of pain and peril in Kirby Plaza with unflinching heroism.

A prediction by definition is to fortell on the basis of observation. Shouldn't you KNOW you can't wait?

That's a fair point, but I think I should clarify that
Spoiler:
I haven't had time to sit and not wait as I've been pretty busy catching up this morning. However, once I slow down I do know, for a fact, that I will not be able to wait then. But right now that's just my prediction based on my busy work getting done.

Meh. The last few episodes have been filler, so I'm going to give this one a miss and catch up in an episode or two.

How can the episode possibly live up to my expectations?

A small part of me is tempted to skip this and save the finale for my Heroes HD DVD marathon in August.

But the rest of me is going to overrule that small part and watch tonight.

can't wait!

I think it's funny that in the synopsis above they still feel the need to say "the everyday people with extraordinary abilities." Can't we just say heroes now or something else a little shorter?

It's over now here in Canada. Some spoilers for those of you that can't wait:

Spoiler:
DL survived last week, but everyone else remained dead. Also being added to the death list this week (supposedly): Sylar, Peter and Nathan. And maybe Parkman. Just as it looks like Peter is going to explode and Claire will have to kill him, Nathan shows up to fly him high in the sky where they explode together. Hiro does kill Sylar (apparently, as he can see his life flash in his eyes), but it looks like he dragged himself to a manhole. End of volume one.

Volume two ("Generations") starts with Hiro ending up in 1671, Japan between what looks to be his father as the Hero Kensei and an army looking to kill him. We see everything turn dark, and all look up to see what is an eclipse, which morphs into the symbol for the show. To Be Continued....

As long as it's not as awful as the one from a few eps ago (Future ep) I'm game!

IS it just me or is the NBC HD feed fucked up? I hit pause on the PVR and when I came back and fast forwarded, I have no sound and the picture if messed up... is it the PVR or NBC that decided I should have to download the show?

WTF? This is quite the grand conspiracy.

I wonder who the person is who can see Molly when she thinks of him? Do we know him? Eps only half over, so maybe we'll find out, but I'm guessing that'll be next seasons big story.

Would be my guess as well. So maybe some of the characters will carry over to next season.

Got the feeling he'll be a lot more powerful than Sylar.
