Heroes -- "the Kindness Of Stranges" -- 10.15.2007


"the Kindness Of Stranges"

Between shifts at a local fast food joint, Monica Dawson begins to exhibit some unexpected new abilities unbeknownst to her brother Damon, grandmother Nana, and cousin Michah. Angela Petrelli makes a shocking confession. With Molly's "boogyman" continuing to turn her dreams into nightmares, Matt asks her to put aside her fears and locate him on a map -- with terrible results. Suspecting Claire has a new boyfriend, H.R.G. fears for the future. As they get closer to the U.S., Maya and Alejandro make a grim discovery on the road.

I'm predicting that the kid that's dating Claire is the one killing off the old heroes and he's playing Claire to make her turn against her father.

Could be. That would explain him surviving after pushing Sulu off the roof.
He just flew away.

I think this episode is going to kick butt.

Decent theory, but why would Sulu know him?

While we are making predictions, I predict that Sylar and the Wonder Twins will meet tonight.

I predict the girl wonder twin will cry black oil and kill people while she is separated from her brother, only to have him arrive at the last second and possibly save the people.

I'm guessing the one that's killing off the heroes will be Takezo Kensei. They must be dragging that storyline out for some reason, and I can't see him being a good guy at the end.

So does that mean Kensei is also Molly's boogeyman?

That's my guess. They have to be building that character up for something bigger than this current story line. I get the feeling Hiro will turn out to be the "good" Takezo Kensei from the stories, and the real Takezo Kensei will be the big villain this year.

Exactly. It's SARK after all.

I know its a tv show, but the random meeting of "heroes" is kind of annoying. Claire just happening to sit next to flying boy in class. The wonder twins finding Sylar. Etc...

But at least the wonder twins story is finally going somewhere this week.

"Wake up foo !"

I hate the punk ass cousin that Micah is living with. And the flying boy.

I was hoping Micah going to live with his cousin would be the end of him. Not only is it not the end of him, now his cousin is going to be a part of the story.

The Claire and Flying boy story is just getting worse.

And we're finally getting somewhere with Nightmare man.

So, this season is finally getting some progression, but unfortunately not all of it is good.

So I guess it's not Kensei then.

I like my guess better.

I hear that! I'm not a fan of the cousin at all, either. Don't want to see ANY development of that character (as I wasn't really looking forward to the Micah character's development, but I supposed I could have lived with that).

And I hated flying boy from minute one. He's just gotten more annoying by the episode. So I'm sure they'll keep him in the forefront.

I'm glad this week's episode focused so much on the mystery killer/"Shadow King" (old X-Men villain who the killer reminds me of) storyline. Its my favorite story of the season by far and I like the range of suspects (annoying boyfriend/Nathan/Matt's dad/Kensei).

And thank goodness for the addition of Sylar to the twin storyline. He has really given it a shot in the arm.

I really wish they would quit adding so many new characters when they can't seem to figure out what to do with the ones they already have. It would also be nice if every character wasn't directly related to another character.

The wonder twins story starting to go somewhere

The Bad:

No Hiro this week

The Laughably bad:

Right because this couldn't possibly be more than random...

Anyone notice Flying Boy wearing a hoodie on the episode? I really think it was him.

I actually like the chick who can learn stuff just by seeing it. That can go interesting places.
