Dear Santa, I want a miracle on 42nd Street: No more Niki.
I flew to NYC last week for Turkey Day with my boyfriend and his family. I celebrated my brief vacation from celebutards, LA traffic, and wildfires (but not the writer’s strike, of course). However, I could not escape Heroes. Their faces (or cleavage) taunted me as I rode the subway from Grand Central. I had to close my eyes.
Once I exited the station and walked into Times Square, Heroes loomed over me in a ginormous advertisement, threatening to crush my puny body if I continued to make fun of Emotard.
Peter’s having a flashback (or flashforward, whichever is more appropriate) to the
biohazard Home Security team grabbing him and Caitlin in a desolate, newspaper-littered
New York. He cries out her name, thinking he’s still in post-apocalyptic 2008 New York.
He’s startled to see Adam, who thinks Peter’s been taking too many hallucinogenics.
Peter insists that there is a virus that’s wiped out 93% of the world’s population,
producing the biohazard flyer.

Slightly better than an eviction notice.
Adam’s eyes grow as large as saucers as Peter tells him it’s the Shanti Virus. Adam
recalls that he knew a biological engineer who discovered the virus and tried to
manipulate it as a biohazard weapon under Company orders. Peter, who now presumably
remembers becoming BFF’s with Adam in Company prison, eats up every word as Adam
intones, “Parents sin, children suffer.” Looks like they’re going to pay a visit to Victoria
Pratt, who discovered the virus on Valentine’s Day in ’76, the same year Steve Jobs
founded Apple and U2 formed. Looks like The Company’s problems could be solved
with some shiny Macs and Bono-heavy iTunes playlists. “I will save Caitin,” vows Peter.
Speaking of The Company…
Bennet wakes up, topless, and mirrors Claire’s season 1 “resurrection” with his own
“Holy…” when he realizes he’s inside The Company. Mohinder magically appears, and
restrains Bennet with fisticuffs. Mohinder’s still wearing his pore-clearing nose strips,
and informs Bennet that Claire’s regenerative-rich blood saved him. Bennet rips
Mohinder a new one for betraying him, breaking his favorite horn-rimmed glasses, and
not sticking to the plan. Mohinder, feeling manly and assertive after shooting a gun for
the first time, barks, “Thank God I came to my senses! BTW, Claire’s at home grieving
the loss of her father.” He blames Bennet for causing violence and paranoia and pats
himself on the back for being a great surrogate parent to Molly. Oh Bennet, it can’t be
that hard to get access to a cell phone and call your family in such a lax facility.

I’ve never seen track marks that spell out
Mohindertard’s all, “I’m a Company Man now. My father would be so proud! I’m gonna
save Niki with your daughter’s blood, how do you like them apples?” Bennet’s attempts
to warn Mohinder that The Company has spent thirty years on the virus and can’t be
trusted are futile. He’s locked in a Company prison cell. Mohinder now tops my list of
“unfavorites,” inching out Emotard, who managed to be useful in last week’s episode
(though Emotard could’ve left the series so easily, by going home when Bennet told him
The House with Trippy Wallpaper, New Orleans
Micah’s derelict cousin, Damon, is yammering about how they should cash in Micah’s
mint condition copies of 9th Wonders and live happily ever after. Because
there’s a huge market for comic book collectors in New Orleans right now. You mean
eBay? I’m betting the house that Damon swipes Micah’s backpack and takes it to the
nearest pawn shop.
Monica chimes in on the conversation, which leads to a discussion about heroes having
dual identities, to prevent their enemies from hurting their loved ones. Damon dismisses
the idea, saying “I’d be rollin’ large so everybody’d know who I was.” Sure, buddy. Also,
Clark Kent’s disguise really wasn’t much of one, you think you can hide chiseled abs and
guns under a suit and some glasses? I know, I’m full of questions. They enter the living
room, where Nana is shooting the shit with Niki. I thought she was contagious. Why the
heck isn’t The Company quarantining her? Perhaps they do want the virus to get out after
all, since Bob just let her waltz out of the building after giving her a terminal diagnosis
and prognosis of “You’re gonna die.”
Micah is great at acting. He looks thrilled to have his crazy mom back, and asks her
where she went. Forgetting that her son is brilliant and gifted with the power of
perception, Niki replies, “The place that helps people like us when we’re sick.” You
mean the same place you went to for a Linderman loan and deal? It’s like Pay Advance
After Micah teaches her the biggest word of her vocabulary yet, “nanosecond,” Niki
reveals she has a virus. Micah thinks to himself, “Way to go and be the Microsoft of the
Heroes world, Mom. You should really run on Linux.” Niki claims it’s not contagious,
although I beg to differ if her blood splatters everywhere in an accident. Of course, Dr.
Suresh is working on a cure. She promises Micah for the millionth time that they will go
back to being normal, to the tune of Everclear’s “I Will Buy You a New Life.” Micah
chirps that he has just the thing to make Mom stronger in his backpack, and it’s not
Lithium or Goji berries. It’s DL’s medal for bravery, and it’s in his backpack…which is
no longer in the other room. How convenient.
I’m sure you called it too, Damon swiped Micah’s backpack and is blubbering that he got
set up and beaten up. Ignoring his cousin’s pathetic nosebleed, Micah lunges at Damon
and wails away at him not because the comics were stolen, but because his dad’s medal
was in the bag. Damon promises to get Micah a new medal, but Micah retorts, “Get me a
new dad too.” Burn.

Don’t believe that wallpaper can make you do crazy things?
Read “The Yellow Wallpaper,” a short story by Charlotte Perkins
Nana’s gonna call the police and get the backpack back, but Micah wants to use his
powers to be heroes instead. Niki refuses, stating that’s what got D.L killed (actually,
your refusal to take the meds and lame personality splitting got D.L killed, lady) but you
can tell from the way Monica is eavesdropping that she’ll take pity on her little cousin.
Plus, she’s tired of watching iPod videos and wants to try some new moves learned from
the James Bond and Charlie’s Angels.
That night, Micah is slumbering as Monica creeps into his room, dressed in the ninja
equivalent of a black Juicy Couture tracksuit. She’s channeling the comic book character
he showed her, St. Joan. If Isaac’s work has taught us anything, everything he paints will
happen in real life, so Monica will adopt that moniker soon enough. Monica wakes Micah
and tells him she understands how he’s feeling, she would hate to lose the last tangible
connection to her mother (the piano). She knows where the thug kids live, and plans to
get the medal back. Telling him to stay out of the way and be safe, Monica proceeds to
take Micah along for the ride. Something tells me this plan is going to fail miserably.
You know who would manage to get his treasure back with no problem? The
Leprechaun. Not only has he managed to kill off nearly everyone who’s stolen his gold,
he’s gone to space as well as the ‘hood. Twice. Please tell me I’m not the only one who
has been subjected to the Leprechaun series of films.
src=”http://www.tvgasm.com/shows/leprechaun4.jpg” width=”246″ height=”293″
“A friend with weed is a friend indeed.” He seriously says
this in Leprechaun: In Da’ Hood
Back at Nana’s house, Niki receives a call from Mohinder, who jubilantly tells her he
found the cure and will bring it to her on the next plane. Unless she dies before he gets
there. Niki goes to tell Micah the good news, but his bed is empty. Micah never learned
the art of shaping pillows to look like a body, but he hasn’t hit puberty yet.
On the other side of town, Micah and Monica combine their powers for the medal
mission. Somehow, Micah scans the house with some gadget-gizmo that does not exist in
real life (what the hell is it?) and confirms no one is inside, and turns off the streetlights
with his hand. He’s like Dumbledore. Monica watches some iPod videos of traceurs
practicing parkour, the art of moving from one point to the other as efficiently and
quickly as possible. In short, being badass. She goes into stealth mode by pulling her
hoodie over her head, to Micah’s approval. “You’re St. Joan!” he exclaims.
Le Parkour time. Monica nimbly catwalks and vaults all the way up the house and opens
the door, which is – surprise – unlocked. Brinks Home Security could really plug
themselves on this show. A few episodes of McGuyver and Monica
would’ve had lock-picking down. The backpack is right there on the floor, in plain sight,
with comics scattered. Micah watches as a van pulls up to the house and tries to hide.
Monica panics, grabs the comics, and doesn’t think to hide on the rooftop. Stupid.
Instead, the guys enter the house, grab jugs of gasoline for some arson (someone is
paying them big money), and Monica is sandwiched into a spot on the ceiling.
Predictably, a comic book falls out of the bag and gives her away. The thugs, one of
which has an awesome grill we see for a nanosecond, drag Monica out of the house and
throw her into the van, to Micah’s horror. Why didn’t she bust some of her Spearmint
Rhino moves? I’ll give Niki fifteen minutes to show up and get killed.
Three’s Company, Two Illegal Immigrants, One Ugly Car
Sylar and Maya have made it to Cook Lake, Virginia, where they are sipping Chardonnay
and toasting their two week anniversary with a picnic. How did Maya’s few American
dollars get them so far? They are so close to New York, and Sylar silently rues that he
hasn’t rid them of Alejandro yet. Maya insists that she needs her brother around to stop
her from killing people as well as protect her chastity, because she can only hold out for
so long against Sylar. Ever the manipulator, Sylar slowly convinces Maya she can control
her powers on her own, even though her co-dependency habit is hard to break. Sylar piles
on the guilt like hot coals and tells Maya that her brother hates her for killing his wife,
intentionally provoking the killer mascara flood.

Someone wants to be in the Star Trek remake
with Zachary Quinto.
He starts gasping for air as the mascara overpowers him, and commands her to control
her power so that she can see him topless someday. Alive, that is. Part of me secretly
wishes Sylar would just die already, leaving Maya to spaz out on her own without her
guardian angel. Just as Sylar is about to conk out, Maya absorbs her own Satan’s spawn
juice and revives him. Somewhere, Celine Dion is singing about the power of love.
“Yatta!” screams Maya.
Alejandro has discovered the wonders of Google, informing a jubilant Maya that Gabriel
Gray killed his own mother. Now if only he had Googled Papa Suresh. He shows her the
article he managed to print out (I didn’t know the Rogue came with a built-in printer from
Dell), to her disbelief. Alejandro is about to confront Sylar but Maya jumps the gun and
blabs “I heard you killed your mother, but I know you didn’t! You couldn’t! The New
York Times hasn’t been this wrong since Jayson Blair wrote for them.” Sylar doesn’t
deny it, but spins a tale of self-defense and says his mother called him a freak. He states it
was an accident, expertly gaining Maya’s sympathy. She’s ready to make out with Sylar
when Alejandro butts in and calls Sylar a murderer. It’s too bad the one Hero who can
read Sylar like a book will soon die.

Besides looking like a Klingon and having multiple
Maya jumps to Sylar’s defense, claiming that she, too, is a murderer. Girl, you’re crazy
and naÃ¯ve, but don’t put yourself in the Sylar category, he actually thinks for himself. She
plays into Sylar’s hands perfectly as she states that she is going to see Dr. Suresh without
Alejandro. Her twin is more pissed than he was when she killed his entire wedding party,
and storms off. Sylar begins comforting Maya and creepily stroking her back and hair as
he coos, “I’ll take care of you.” The sound of a ticking watch returns.
That night, Alejandro confronts Sylar in his hotel room. Maybe he was just jealous of all
the attention Sylar was showering on Maya. I know I would be. Alejandro and Sylar have
a tussle, and Alejandro has learned enough English to say “I’m taking my sister!” Just
when it appears that Alejandro may know a thing about fighting, Sylar pins him on the
ground and stabs him with a short knife. Did you know a paper clip can technically hurt
less than a stabbing? Knowledge is power. Sylar has a hand through Alejandro’s chest, as
though they’re playing the game of Operation. Just then, Maya knocks at the door and
Sylar appears, dripping wet and shirtless, pretending to be mid-shower. He looks more
greasy than damp, though. There are Christmas lights in the distance, so I guess it’s
already the holiday season in Heroes land, too.

We get a glimpse of lifeless Alejandro on the floor as Sylar closes the door behind him,
and it’s not pretty. Maya confesses that Sylar was right about everything, and proceeds to
inspect his mouth for cavities. With her tongue. One twin down, one to go. Or perhaps
Alejandro can’t die unless Maya dies. I don’t care anymore.
Ando and Hiro Reunion
Ando and Hiro pore over photographs from Kaito’s files, and of course they come across
the same Original 12 Heroes photo. Ando asks Hiro why Kensei did not die in White
Beard’s camp like his scrolls said, and Hiro mentions that Kensei regenerates better than
any Pokemon he has ever seen. He casually mentions that he froze time on the rooftop
and realized Kensei killed Kaito. After rifling through more files, they discover a photo
of Adam rocking a turtleneck. He’s posing with Kaito, and Hiro figures out Kensei has
been doing by the name of Adam. A document signed by Kaito on November 2, 1977
reveals an order to lock up Adam Monroe. Before Ando can say, “Time travel kills your
sperm!” Hiro makes like a tree and leaves. Again.
src=”http://www.tvgasm.com/shows/Heroes11-26-07012.jpg” width=”350″ height=”197″
You’re not imagining things, that’s a velvet
It’s 1977, and The Company is having yet another evacuation (a la Maury Parkman), as a
restrained Adam confronts a young Kaito, who resembles the nephew of Chairman Kaga
from Iron Chef. “Someone had to make the hard choice for the greater
good,” says Adam, predating Linderman and Bob’s similar words. He also argues that
history has shown patterns, such as wars, famine, and a blatant disregard for the
environment. Perhaps Adam created ManBearPig. Kaito tells the security officers to lock
up Adam and throw away the key in heavily accented Engrish.
Later, in the lab, Kaito addresses a shaken Victoria, who has just been assaulted. She’s
nursing a scratch on her left cheek, which may or may not be relevant. Young Victoria,
who is really quite pretty (sort of looks like a petite, down-to-earth Jean Grey) says that
strain 138 was what Adam was looking for specifically, and asks Kaito to shut down the
lab and destroy the virus for good, or it will become a pandemic. Kaito tells her his hands
are tied, and that the other founders would never allow that. Seems like the only
pandemic of the 1970′s was how popular turtlenecks were for both men and women.

“The virus isn’t that bad, I’m holding it in my bare
Victoria tells Kaito that Adam must have had inside help to know exactly what strain to
look for, and Kaito says the virus will be taken to Odessa and stored in Primatech. End of
discussion. Refusing Kaito’s suggestion that she take a few days off for some rest, spa
treatments and maybe a mud wrap, Victoria quits her position and leaves The Company
without giving two week’s notice. I don’t understand why they wouldn’t continue to
monitor her after she leaves, but The Company’s security system has always been flawed
or nonexistent. I’m telling you, Fisher Price baby monitors would be an upgrade.
Victoria Pratt’s house
It’s present day, and Adam and Peter head to Victoria Pratt’s house. How did Adam
obtain her location without Mama Petrelli or Parkman? Peter pulls a Mohinder when
Adam offers him some guns. He makes the decision to meet her by himself, leaving
Adam by the car. They’re in Maine, and Victoria appears to be weeding in her garden. He
tells her the Shanti virus will be unleashed in 24 hours (how did I miss that 24 hour
deadline?), killing billions of people, unless she helps him on his quest. He doesn’t know
how it gets out, or where, but only that it does. Um, it probably wouldn’t get out if you
just stopped now. Victoria replies by aiming a shotgun at him. Peter indicates he’s
unarmed and casually mentions he’s been to the future and has seen the destruction in
store. She loads the gun and orders him inside. Feisty.
Victoria mentions he looks like Mama Petrelli. We get a panning shot of newspaper clips,
including headlines of “Petrelli Confesses,” Kaito’s murder, and a piece on the African-
American woman sitting next to Deveaux in the Heroes photo. Nice framed prints of
molecular compounds, Victoria. They give me flashbacks of high school AP Chem,
where I learned absolutely nothing because none of our labs worked. That’s what
happens when you go to public school, your chemicals are ancient, and the textbooks are
literally from 1969. We had a problem that started out, “You have a mixture of cocaine
diluted with C6H12O6″ and also one involving Lizzie Borden buying toxic gas. So we
won’t be meeting all 12 founders, it seems. Peter replies, “The last time I saw my mother,
it was a year from now.” Hee. And he needs her assistance in locating the virus. Victoria
rehashes the fact that Strain 138 would kill everyone if it was released, yada yada yada.
However, Peter tries to reassure her he will destroy it, because he’s doing it for Caitlin.
Leaving Victoria’s house, Peter proudly tells Adam that the virus is in the Company
storage facility in New Mexico. Adam realizes Victoria suspects them, as that there is no
Company branch in NM. Bang! She nails Adam in the chest with the shotgun and
squarely shoots Peter after telling him, “You’re working with him now. That’s all I need
to know.” I’m a fan of Victoria’s efficiency and lack of qualms, even though she’s
basically shooting people who can regenerate. Something tells me she would not survive
a zombie attack. She’s about to blast Adam’s head off (she theorizes it’s the only way to
kill him) when Peter knocks her out with her own gun. Looks like Peter’s healing abilities
src=”http://www.tvgasm.com/shows/Heroes11-26-07019.jpg” width=”350″ height=”197″
“This was a brand new Brooks Brothers shirt!”
Back in the house, Peter confronts a tied-up Victoria about the virus and she tells Peter
the story about how Adam broke into her lab to procure the deadly strain in order to
release it. She insists that he’s trying to do it again. Adam tries to turn it on her, and
Victoria says that Adam is the killer (rightly so), which makes Peter one too, just like his
parents. That hits a nerve for Peter, who blames Victoria for her actions, conveniently
forgetting what atrocities his own parents must have committed in the past. Entering the
race for most annoying/useless Hero, Peter doesn’t bother double-check the veracity of
this by reading Adam’s mind to see if Victoria’s telling the truth. Even if he thinks Adam
is right, he could at least check. Le sigh.
Oh, but he does use his telepathic powers to figure out the location is Odessa, Texas, at
Primatech. Sigh. Adam says he’s going to let her go (very out of character, but it’s
probably setting her up to reach for her gun again and give him a “reason” to kill her),
loosening her restraints and she immediately reaches for her shotgun and aims for Peter.
Before she can pull the trigger, though, Adam shoots Victoria in the head. Peter’s stunned
and insists it wasn’t necessary to kill the poor woman. Adam conceals his glee until Peter
leaves the room.
“If anyone survives, I’ll tell them I couldn’t have done it without you,” he murmurs to
Victoria’s corpse as he smears the photograph of her with her own blood. How very goth
of him, maybe Hot Topic will start selling Heroes fan memorabilia such as
replicas of the death photos. Looks like Adam he carries pictures of all of them in his
Casa de Bennet
Bob is back! Mama Bennet has a gun aimed at his head, and it’s nice to see her character
being more pro-active these days. Bob offers the Bennet family an urn filled with HRG’s
“remains.” More like coffee grounds transferred from a Folger’s can. However, Claire
and Co. don’t know that Bennet is now a Company Zombie. Bob says he’s honoring
Bennet’s final wishes, to let Claire live a normal life in peace. You know, until they need
more of her blood. The entire Bennet family looks ready to attack Bob, and I kind of
would enjoy seeing each of them attack a limb.
Angry and determined, Mama Bennet declares they are moving away now. Emotard
invites himself along. Bob gets in his car, where Elle is waiting. He tells his daughter the
next 24 hours are critical, and that they need to ask themselves what Jack Bauer would
do. Elle scratches at her cast and complains about being shot. “I thought my little girl was
tough,” says Bob. So much for “get well soon” cupcakes and kisses. He tells her to
“None of this would’ve happened if you had lowered your guard,” chastises Bob,
blaming Elle and telling her to accept responsibility to regain his trust. He reminds me of
my high school band director, who was all about “Results not excuses!” It’s a little
fucked up since he put his own daughter up to this business, and I imagine Bennet’s
words to Elle about her Bob are stinging right about now. I’m hoping for an Elle-Bennet
alliance next week, what do you think? She’s like his bizarro Company world daughter,
Inside the house, Claire is packing up and has a mini monologue that Hamlet would laugh
at. She rails against the world because her emotional pain outweighs all the physical pain
her stunts have brought her. Emotard tries to comfort her with a massage, and doesn’t try
distract her with “I love you.” Pulling the Haitian windchimes out of a box, Claire vows
to forget the pain of losing her father. Even Emotard thinks the windchimes are tacky.
With a little dialogue borrowed from Lifetime, he convinces Claire that
forgetting is not the answer. Lots of sex and drugs are the answer. Or revenge, that works
“Date My Mom: My Dad Just Died” failed as a spin-
At the beach frequented by many MTV reality shows, as pointed out by attentive readers, Claire prepares to release her father’s ashes into the ocean. Not sure if that was in his final wishes, but whatevs. She apologizes for her selfishness and for disobeying her dad (who was totally right). Fortunately, the wind is blowing in the right direction so she doesn’t pull a Big Lebowski with the cremains. It’s probably cat litter, anyway. She returns to her mom, Lyle, Mr. Muggles, and Emotard. Her mom mutters something about Salt Lake. Perhaps they are planning to hide amongst all the Mormons.
Dum dud um dum dum. Claire is trying to say goodbye to Emotard when she notices a familiar black car in the distance. It’s Elle, and she’s sippin’ on gin and juice disguised as a Slurpee. Her right hand is useless, and she can’t get the key in the ignition fast enough. Claire runs over to confront her blonde doppelganger, and yes, the cat fight of your dreams ensues. Sort of. Claire chokes Elle and slams her against the car, calling her a liar. Emotard steps in to intervene and encourage them to hug. “Watch who you’re shoving, Pom Pom,” snarls Elle. Heh.
This Pom Pom won’t take nothin’ from nobody.
Claire vows to expose Elle and The Company for murdering Bennet, and Elle says bring it on. There’s no proof, she says. Claire says she’ll just have to show them, whatever that means, punching the driver’s side window and shattering the glass. Claire reasons that once the secret’s out, they won’t be able to touch her or her family. Usually, the general public is scared of people who are different from them. Remember the Salem witchhunts, Claire? Oh wait, you don’t go to class. Right, our homeland security department will protect Claire and fellow heroes, given the current state of our administration. Ask me after the 2008 election. “You’ll be the ones running,” says Claire, ending her Ph.D-worthy thesis on “How I took The Company down and Made Millions with Google.”
Welcome to the O.C., bitch.
Back in New York, Bob and Mohinder discuss the implications of strain 138. Mohinder argues it should be destroyed before it wipes out all of civilization. This company is very vigilant about security, says Bob, but Mohinder scoffs. “Oh really? For weeks I operated as a sloppy spy and you didn’t know shit, dude. God knows what someone with skills and tact could achieve.” I guess Tim Kring realizes that Cisco systems were not as secure as he thought they were. Mohinder wants to get every strain of the virus and destroy them, with Bob’s help. Well, I want a goose that lays golden eggs, and I want it now!
“I want to talk about my 401(k).”
Mohinder’s on the way home in a taxi when he receives a phone call. He’s got two vials of blood (Claire’s?) and a syringe with him. “I convinced the babysitter to take the night off,” says Sylar smoothly. Sylar is in Mohinder’s apartment and stroking Molly’s hair, and it’s mega-creepy. Jesus tapdancing Christ, he got to New York quickly in the Rogue. Is Parkman dead, or is it possible that my two dads hired an inept teenager for the night? You would think they would agree to always have one parent at home.
Sylar cheerfully informs Mohinder that he’s brought a guest who’s waiting to see him. He doesn’t mention the mascara of death, though, that’d be a downer. Memo to Mohinder: Call Bennet. Or Bob. One of them. Or Ghostbusters.
Back in Japan, Ando is asleep in his chair, dreaming of Hiro’s sister, when his BFF returns from 1977. Hiro’s finally figured out what he needs to do, because Adam wants to unleash the virus and kill everyone. He must go to Primatech in Odessa, Texas. But when? Hiro grabs the Kensei samurai sword and says peace before Ando can rub the sleep from his eyes. “Why is saving the world always your responsibility?” complains Ando.
Adam and Peter stroll into Primatech in the present day and time freezes. How convenient that, given the time zones and all, the moment that Hiro decided to teleport to Odessa, they were there too! Peter is immune to time-freezing, and Hiro looks at Peter incredulously. Hiro tells him that Adam killed his father and that he must pay for it, but Peter prepares to defend himself and Adam with a ball of electricity. Hiro, who doesn’t think of teleporting himself away or at least between Peter and Adam to get a decent swing at Adam’s head, tells Peter he’s chosen the wrong side and charges full speed at our little Petrelli. They can’t both survive, can they?
Well, you know you make me wanna’ shout,throw my hands up and shout!
Next week: Bennet lives. Two heroes will fall, and a villain will rise. Name your draft
picks, it’s time to play fantasy Heroes. My hope is that Niki dies while saving Monica, and that Emotard sacrifices himself in the name of love. I wouldn’t mind if Mohinder spilled his guts to Sylar, either. It’s obvious that neither Peter nor Hiro are biting the bullet anytime soon.
I have a few questions.
1. If you can just blow off Adam’s head to kill him, why didn’t The Company try all
these extensive tests on him during the 30+ years they had him locked away? Why didn’t they take any of his regenerative blood?
2. Did Adam sleep with Mama Petrelli? Is he Claire’s grandpa?
3. Is there a possibility that Victoria had a thing for Kaito, since it seems like Mama Petrelli and her are BFF’s who share secrets? Perhaps Victoria kept the Kaito-Petrelli liason a secret for her all these years. What’s Victoria’s power?
4. Will someone buy me a goose that lays golden eggs? I’d like to think that, contrary to popular belief and Avenue Q, my B.A. in English isn’t useless. Because I can ask for ridiculous and impossible gifts online.
