Sooo, last time: Sylar and Claire got to have some quality time with their dads. One was a bit more nurturing than the other, sure, but can Nathan hypnotize bunnies? I think not!
I guess we can presume from the episode title that Tracey gets to work it tonight. Also, this episode is suppose to be the Second Coming of Bryan Fuller. Yeah, no pressure, dude. Last week-bunny, this week: socks. Oh yeah, I’m calling it!
HRG (Jack Coleman) convinces Emile Danko (guest star Zeljko Ivanek), a.k.a. The Hunter, to release Tracy (Ali Larter) from Building 26, in hopes that she will lead them to Rebel. As Angela (Cristine Rose) evades capture, she turns to an old friend (guest star Swoosie Kurtz) for help. In Los Angeles, Hiro (Masi Oka) and Ando (James Kyson Lee) continue on their latest mission from Rebel to protect the newest hero.
I knew they were going to tone down Hiros power somehow, i thought it would be using Andos power but this worked too. My brother said a chunk of Tracys face winked after she was in pieces, i missed it.
Yeah and verily, but after watching the Galactica finale, my sense of dead/alive characters is shot straight to hell,so I’m not even going to think about it
*she rematerializes out a storm drain into the river three weeks from now, right?
Y’know, while I was sitting in traffic today, confident in the knowledge that I had the ^#^# dvr set up correctly, I was thinking that something I enjoy about the show is that it’s avoided making ‘who’s in love /screwing with who’ (coff Friends *coff) *be major plot elements. Now I remember how that works-the high girlfriend death rate!
There is no way Ali Larter stays dead dead. She’s part of the main cast and probably has a sweetheart contract, just like Sylar, Claire, HRG and even Ando (all of whom have “died”). Daphne, on the other hand, got the non-supernatural death so she really is dead dead.
well Micah is Rebel to the shock of just about no one.
I did find it interesting that the called Matt Parkman’s baby, Baby Touch and Go. It’s as if they’re readily admitting that everyone on this show gets a nickname and saying “Here. We made the name up first. Call him this.”
I saw Tracy wink too.
Is Michael Dorn ever coming back? He deserves more than one scene half out of frame.
I really have nothing for this section. I just needed to complete the pattern
No, definitely a wink. I’m torn; on the one hand, it’s cool (HA!) that she’s apparently like the X-Men’s Iceman in that she can turn herself to ice, get broken apart, and still somehow manage to survive, as long as she can get the pieces together again. On the other hand, a wink? Really? Was she winking at Noah? And did Noah already know that Tracey could freeze herself, get shattered, and still survive? I suppose if anyone should know, it would be Noah.
I both thought this episode was great and yet deeply pissed that another blonde girlfriend with an interesting personality got killed. Well, Eden was brunette but under the circumstances, honorary blonde. But still, any chance they can develop a new interesting character and not kill them? Shit, Maya just got a fake passport and sent to Jersey, all she ever did was cause localized plagues and slept around a bit. Eden and Daphne die saving others (preventively, in Eden’s case) and* thud.*
The Tracey garage scene- terrific; HiroNanny- sweet and ass kicking; an appropriate level of menace surrounding Angela’s pursuit; thought the Daphne/Matt relationship nattering(she’d dump him for that?) /makeup in Paris scene was nonsensical- until. Sniff
Think maybe Matt’s doing a mojo thingy on the hospital staff so if they get tracked there the feds’ll be told she died?
I didn’t realize it was after her head fell to the ground and I kept stopping before re-watching that.
Can’t believe nobody has commented on the umbrellas yet. The bit with Angela giving Noah her umbrella may be nothing, but I very clearly saw her swipe a smaller one from Swoosie Kurtz as she left her in the restaurant, and shove it into the hands of a doorman as she went into that office building after that. I wonder what that was all about.
