Heroes -- "Out Of Time" -- 11.05.2007


"Out Of Time"

When one of his forgotten abilities suddenly manifests, Peter and Caitlin get thrown into a crisis situation, and learn first-hand just how deadly the mysterious virus striking people with abilities can be. To fend off the "nightmare man's" attack Suresh, Matt, Nathan, Niki and Bob band together. Despite Claire's best efforts to keep them apart, West learns that the man who kidnapped him as a child is her father. Meanwhile, in feudal Japan, Hiro and Kensei's legendary journey takes a dramatic, final turn.

Kind of ironic episode title. Kinda describes this show and TV season overall.

Looks like we'll be getting an 11 episode season 2.

Funny, that's the first thing I thought of too.

I haven't been following these threads or any TV news lately - why do you say only 11 episodes? Just because of the writer's strike? Or because of poor ratings?

Because of the strike. They're reportedly filming an alternate ending for a December episode that could be used to wrap up the entire season if the strike continues.

aktick: The ending to the first episode in December has been re-shot to serve as a possible season finale in case the strike continues. So yeah, we may get an 11 episode season.

EDIT: What doughboy said...

I was wondering why NBC was pimping the next five episodes as an "event" as it might serve some closure for something.

I believe the episode was always intended to wrap up "Volume 2", but that the season would continue on after that.

Hey, look on the bright side, at least the season two DVD set will be cheaper than season one, having fewer episodes and all ...

But will cost more if the WGA gets a larger cut of the sales.

True, thankfully this isn't a HBO show. Of course, will any of us actually want to pick up the Season 2 boxset?

Good point. But we're completists (well, most of us are, anyway). I'm sure we'll get it anyway. The big retailers and NBC/Universal will make sure to throw a bunch of exclusives our way and that'll do the job.

either way, he already screwed up the time/space continuum unless they send him backwards instead of forward.

a big 5 episode run starts tonight! hopefully its either way, after these 5 episodes is it the end of vol. 2 and then vol. 3 starts since originally both volumes were supposed to be this season?

Wow, kickass episode. Instead of the boyfriend, it looks like
Spoiler:
Suresh is the triggerman for the death of HRG
.

- Loved that Parkman is finally coming into his own.

- Hopes Nicki will die.

- Can't wait to see the first Hiro / "Adam" meeting.

Pretty much my exact thoughts.

Yeah, the Adam Monroe reveal wasn't all that surprising, but it's definitely getting more convoluted.

Glad Hiro is back to the present, even if he got some really bad news.

Nikki still gets on my nerves. Looking forward to the virus doing its thing on her.

Mohinder would make a terrible poker player. Bob's reaction was kinda funny, though.

Concerning Sulu's death
Spoiler:
I think Peter is the one who killed him. Notice he's wearing the same clothes as the killer. Adam sends him to do the deed in order to get back at Hiro.

Interesting theory, but I think whoever did it was a lot shorter. Plus I'm not sure the timeline matches up.

I think it would be awsome if Dr. Who is the one who takes out Sark.

Awesome episode tonight. So pretty much all the theories that the real Kensei is Hiro, Kensei (Adam) is the killer are true. I still think the theory that Kensei is Papa Petrelli is wrong. Then what is the point of the novel with Papa Petrelli and Linderman in the Vietnam war. The novel pretty much explain that Papa Petrelli has no power.

agreed and because of the rift in relationship with
Spoiler:
his daughter she doesn't save him.


anyway, episode was great. bob's reaction was pretty funny to suresh. no twins or sylar

this adam/peter line looks pretty odd but i guess it will come to a head next week and the week after.
