Heroes -- "Cautionary Tales" -- 11.19.2007


"Cautionary Tales"

Convinced that the Company is close to finding them, H.R.G. prepares the family to run -- but Claire has other ideas. Hiro returns from the past and learns of his father's death. Grief-stricken, he flings himself into past and makes a stunning personal discovery. After a charged first encounter with Elle, Suresh makes a decision that could change lives. Meanwhile, Matt struggles with his expanding mental abilities. Maya and Alejandro's relationship is tested as they travel with Sylar. Peter meets someone who could unlock his past.

It's kind of a storytelling cheat, showing up Isaac's painting, but then not really having much consequence to them.

I liked the part about girls attracted to boys like their dads (guys who can fly). Cute.

Matt is really digging deep with his newfound powers. He could let that power corrupt him if he's not careful.

Hiro learned some hard lessons about changing fate. Not all that surprised about Kaito's killer's identity. Adam's become the boogeyman of this first arc of season 2, but they did spend a long time with his backstory.

Elle got put through the ringer. Self-shock therapy, and getting shot, and learning of getting her memories wiped.

Another great episode. Every episode gets better every week. Guess it wasn't flying boy that killed Hiro's pop.

Could it be Adam?

HRG hates the company

HRG knows how to find people from the company

Adam has the blood

Um... did I miss something or did this not happen (from the description in the first post):

Spoiler:
Maya and Alejandro's relationship is tested as they travel with Sylar. Peter meets someone who could unlock his past.

That is why I don't read these episode spoiler/descriptions, they set you up to expect certain things to happen, and you spend part of your attention wondering how the spoiler info is going to work itself into the episode, instead of just letting the episode unfold before you.

I just c'n'p what Yahoo! posts. Heck, in the past, they've misspelled the episode's title.

So Parkman had a name on the photo now, does this mean he took that one last secret from her?

Part of me wish they had the balls to keep Noah dead. But I have to admit, I'm glad he's still around...great character! (Except when he would say Claire Bear...man, that annoyed the crap outta me).
