Heroes – Chapter 2 – “Don’t Look Back”

This episode starts with Peter’s brother Nathan telling him that he’s a crazy nurse and that neither of them flew. Peter knows damn well that he was flying, and he knows that his brother was flying too. You’ll come to learn that Nathan is a lying scoundrel… like all politicians. Nathan tries to feed Peter a story, “You fell onto a fire escape, and I had to climb up to get you.” Bullshit! I can smell it from here. Later, Peter’s mom visits and reveals a secret about his fathers death – he had actually committed suicide – he had a major depressive disorder. His mom also reveals that Peter was always her favorite… maybe that’s why he became a nurse… too much coddling from mother.

Back in Texas now with Claire Bennet – she’s convinced that there is something wrong with her, so she begins questioning her father about her natural birth parents. Mister Bennet’s answer is somewhat shady, and at this point in the show, we can’t tell whether he is good or evil. As of now, my vote is for evil, but he’s got a soft spot for his daughter, so I think he wants to keep her indestructibility a secret. Later on at school, the police meet with the cheerleading squad to find out who was the cheerleader who walked into the fire. Claire is identified, but before she can explain, one of her attention hungry teammates takes credit. What a ho! Later that day, Claire and her buddy are walking across the field in the middle of football practice – because that’s something that happens everyday… like there is a football coach in Texas who wouldn’t have an absolute shit fit if some random kids were walking across his field in the middle of practice. Anyways, Claire gets lit-up by thunderous hit from one of the players… it appears that she breaks her neck, but she just shrugs it off, gets up and walks off.

Mohinder Suresh returns to his deceased fathers apartment in Brooklyn, NY to find an “exterminator” bugging the phone. Mohinder acts tough, but we all know that he’s really just a little bitch. They end up scuffling and the exterminator runs off when the female neighbor comes out to save Mohinder. The female neighbor is shocked to hear of Mohinder’s fathers death. She tells Mohinder that she used to cook for his father and have long talks with him. Together they listen to his fathers phone messages, where they find a single disturbing message who we deduct is from a dude named Sylar. Mohinder explains that he had once found a tape of a conversation that his father had with a man named Syler. They search the house and find a disk that contains his fathers algorithm for finding those special people who have evolved beyond normal humans.

Hiro Nakamura lands in Times Square New York after teleporting himself. While walking through the busy streets, he sees a comic book… a comic book that he is on the cover of… standing in Times Square, exactly where he had stood moments before. He flips through the comic and it mysteriously documents his travels. On the back page, he finds the authors information – Isaac Mendez – the painter who can paint the future. Later, Hiro visits Isaacs studio where he finds Isaac murdered, his skull cut in half, and his brain gone. While being scrutinized for the murder of Isaac Mendez, we realize that Hiro is 5 weeks in the future from the time he left Tokyo. Then in the distance, we see a nuclear blast in the middle of New York City. Hiro uses his power to teleport back to the Tokyo subway where he started his journey. Yup… go back to where you came from.

Back in Las Vegas, Niki Sanders has a major time lapse forgetting to pick her son up from school. She also finds out that she’s a murderous bitch when she watches video tape of herself murderizing 2 dudes in her garage. She returns home expecting to find a couple dead bodies in her garage, but to her surprise, her garage is immaculate, but she does find keys to a hot old school Cadillac convertible. In the car she finds a note telling he to follow a map that is in the trunk. In the trunk are the two dead bodies from her garage and map. Niki follows the map into the middle of the desert where she finds a shovel. She begins digging until she hits a human skeleton… has Niki killed before? I think so.
In Los Angeles, police officer Matt Parkman is outside a murder scene that is being run by the FBI. He begins hearing a little girls voice in his head, “Please don’t hurt me,” she keeps repeating. Matt follows the voice into the house where there are two dead bodies, one pinned to the wall with cutlery and one frozen solid with it’s head sawed in half. Continuing to follow the voice, Matt eventually finds a little girl hiding beneath the staircase. Outside the house, Matt is questioned and put under arrest for conspiring to setup a murder in order to make himself look good. After listening to the FBI agents thoughts, Matt pleas that, “Sylar did it,” and the FBI agent becomes very suspicious knowing that only 6 people had been assigned to the Sylar case. Matt is arrested… watch your cornhole bud.

Heroes – Chapter 1 – “In His Own Image”

Crazy ass Peter Petrelli (Milo Ventimiglia) decides to leap off a building… great start to a show! First episode and some crazy mo-fo is leaping off a building! You’re led to believe by the title of the show that Peter may actually be able to fly, however the real reason that he is jumping is the fact that he is a male nurse. Not the most glorious of jobs. After he leaps, Peter wakes up to the soft, sweet voice of Simone Deveaux – the daughter of the man that Peter is a male nurse for. Peter discloses that Simone’s father probably only has a couple days left… then he’ll have to take his nursing somewhere else. Peter’s brother Nathan is more of a man, but not much… he’s running for office. And if their family wasn’t messed up enough already, their multi-millionaire widow of a mother gets busted for stealing socks. Who steals socks? WTF?

Enter Dr. Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy), a geneticist from India. Mohinder lectures on the human genome project and the possibility of genetic mutations in the genetic code of the human race. Mohinder’s lecture is cut short after he hears the news of his fathers death in New York City. Mohinder believes that his fathers death was due to his research on human evolution so Mohinder visits New York to investigate. At his fathers apartment in New York Mohinder grabs what he can before being scared away like a little bitch.

Now, across the United States, another character – Niki Sanders (Ali Larter) is introduced. She’s a full blown cyber slut who strips on her webcam in her garage. Not only is she a cyber skank, but she does this with her young son Micah in the house. What a tramp! She is interupted by 2 dudes who kill the show and force her to run out of her house. She drops her son off at her mothers and later returns – her house is torn apart and the 2 dudes show back up demanding 50 G’s. She doesn’t have it, so they smack the ho down. When she wakes up with blood all over the place, she sees that the 2 men have been murderized. (I think I may have to copyright that word) I think this was about the time that Niki realized that she’s all fucked up in the head.

Now in Texas – enter the cheerleader, Claire Bennet (Hayden Panettiere), you know… “save the cheerleader, save the world”. That chick. She just took a plunge from the top of a tower, kinda like what Peter was trying to do, but this girl had no one to save her. She hits the ground like a ton of bricks, smashing every bone in her body. Somehow, she pops up “re-aligns” herself and walks off without a scratch. By the way… she’s done this 6 times. Yup… six. The next time we see her, she’s rushing into a blazing inferno and somehow escapes untouched. She’s probably going to get in trouble for burning her cheerleading outfit.

Now, over in Japan, Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka) finds out that he can rewind time by… what looks to me as squeezing out the fattest duece man has ever seen. He will shit himself at least 3 times before the season ends. Mark my words.

Who’s next you ask? The heroin addict painter – Isaac Mendez (Santiago Cabrera). Isaac has painted things that haven’t occurred yet.
