Claire’s buddy returns the tape of her trying to cause bodily harm to herself after they thought that it had been lost. Being an irresponsible female, Claire leaves the tape where her little brother finds it. He in turn watches it and is amazed – Claire trys to play it off as “special effects”. Her little brother is not convinced so you staples her ass. He only got one staple off… had he been using a red swingline, he could have easily popped her with at least 4 or 5. Claire removes the staple and her blood miraculously jumps back into her skin. Pretty nifty.
Matt, the mind reading cop, sits down to have a conversation with his wife. He wants to tell her that he can read minds, but is distracted while listening to her thoughts. His skanky wife had been cheating on him. In his next scene, he and Aubrey the FBI agent are examining a charred body that is emitting large amounts of radiation. One too many visits to the tanning salon if you ask me. With the body, there is a single piece of evidence… the fingerprint of Theodore Sprague – seared to the bone. Matt and Aubrey next visit radioactive-man and his wife in the hospital where they learn that when radioactive-man’s temper flares, he starts to generate tons of heat and radiation. Matt is able to relay some of Ted’s comatose wifes thoughts to calm him down and get him to agree to join them at the police station. Back at the station, Matt tells his partner that he’s retaking the detective exam, his partner congratulates him while thinking the exact opposite, “F’ing loser… I’m boinking your wife!”. Since Matt is special, he is able to hear this and he in turn catches his partner with a devastating right haymaker. Watch out Iron Mike.
Hiro, Ando D.L. and Micah have a coincidental run in on a desolate road outside of Las Vegas where there has been a car crash and a woman is trapped in the car. D.L. goes to help the woman out, where he reaches through the window to unlock the door. By through, I mean through the closed glass. I could have used that power at the soda machine yesterday when I was 10 cents short. The car proceeds to explode and Hiro stops time and pulls both D.L. and the woman from the wreckage before they get incinerated. Toward the end of the episode, Micah tries to use an out of order payphone outside of their hotel… Micah makes it work by touching it. Can you hear me now? Finally a hero that can have a real world application – Verizon… call this kid up!!!
