Heroes: 3.4 - I Am Become Death

Become-Death.jpg

So, Mo is flaking chunks of skin like a supersonic chemical peel gone wrong. Hearing a domestic disturbance in the building (with his new superhearing skills?), Mo goes to check it out and bashes in the head of the guy who looks like he's probably the namesake for the wifebeater shirt.

We find out Tracy is a triplet. Niki being her other sister and Barbara (whom we haven't met yet). As their birth parents died, Tracy et al. had their DNA manipulated (by the same formula Hiro is trying to track down?) When Tracy presses for more info, the good doc doesn't have it as his memories have been wiped away (by way of The Haitian, no doubt.)

Tracy tries to confess to the murder of the reporter, but in her anxiety her cryogenic powers surface and she freezes the phone before she can tell the truth. Frustrated and unable to cope with it all, she resigns from her post with Nathan and is about to jump off a bridge when Nathan flies in to save her (with a nudge from Linderman and cue the love theme from Superman). With the knowledge that she is not alone, Tracy is a little comforted and more than turned on by her boss. (Cue two good looking people kissing.) Fast forward to the future and we see Nathan is the President of the United States and Tracy the First Lady (replete with Jackie O sunglasses).

Four years into the future, FP and CDP arrive. It pretty much looks the same except many have gone all Jetson on us (sans the flying saucer!) An injection to manifest powers is available for sale (or for steal if you're desperate enough) Too many people with powers equals cataclysmic destruction according to FP. Naïve CDP still relies on the "good people" of the world to save the day but FP knows better. From what I could understand it looks like sides were taken in the future. Those with natural born powers, those who got it from DNA manipulation. FP is considered a villain. He tells CDP that they need to find Sylar but before he can say much more he is shot by Future Claire. CDP takes off and Claire, with all her ability, needs more practice on the Wii Target as she takes pot shots at CDP.

In the present, Maya has become all domesticated and clingy with Mo, cleaning up after him and such, looking for some more hot and spicy Indian vindaloo (if you catch my meaning). More annoyed than I am with all the clinginess, Mo pushes her aside, claiming he has a lot of work ahead of him. Annoyed herself, Maya drops her accent and takes off. Maya, how about getting a job? Oh wait, you're an illegal? How about going back home and leaving the show?! Perhaps she should go the way of Paolo and Nicki on Lost...

sleestack2.jpg Back to the future, CDP goes in search of Mohinder, who still lives in the Isaac's loft/lab. Mo has transformed. We can't see what he looks like but he skulks around screaming "Sanctuary!" in a shadowy hoodie. He flips off the hoodie and we see that Mo has turned into a sleestack! CDP is looking for Sylar, extracting his location from Mo's mind. CDP then transports himself to the Bennet House in Costa Verde where we find the domesticated Sylar cooking waffles like Donkey from Shrek for his son, Noah (!) He drops the bomb on the unbeknownst CDP that they are siblings. Wha--? Where are the Bennets? Why is Mr. Muggles still there?

CDP wants Sylar's ability so he can understand everything and how to save the world, but with great power comes great responsibility and a great hunger, Sylar warns. A hunger and yearning for more power... Ol' Sy tosses CDP a broken watch he's wearing and tells him to fix it. If he can fix it, it will come... (cue theme music to Field of Dreams.) Not sure whose powers he's using but CDP fixes the watch and seizes the power of Sylar.

In the future (or Parkman's dreamscape), Parkman is married to Daphne with a kid of their own. They've adopted Molly, who is now four years older and looks it too (even though it's only been about a year since they last filmed.) Daphne is part of the Claire chain gang and must go off to catch Peter while Parkman plays Mr. Mom at home. Once she's caught him, she's done and promises to return to a quiet suburbian life.

Daphne, Claire, and Knox (I guess he did make it out of the bank alive) go in search of Peter in Costa Verde. Claire's a little apprehensive about going, but she's on a mission. They storm the former Casa de la Bennet. Knox grabs little Noah and is willing to kill him to get to Peter and Sylar. Daphne's not too sure she's down with all that and arrogant little Miss Thang just wants Peter. Using the speed from Daphne (I assume), Peter runs over to Claire and knocks her out! Yay! Daphne runs over and punches Peter with a right hook, then a left. Little Noah runs away from Knox to Sylar who instead of sending him running out the door, sends him behind a bar stool. Knox and Sylar fight, Knox sending Sylar crashing against a table, send him and the table flying toward the hiding Noah, crushing him. Little Noah is dead. Sylar, angered at the senseless death of his son, goes nuclear like Peter did in Season 1, destroying most of Costa Verde. How the rest of our heroes/villains actually escaped remains to be seen. I'm guessing Claire can't die, Peter can't die since he's absorbed Claire's powers, Daphne took off and Knox is finally dead?

We find Peter strapped to a metal table, FP next to him (is FP really dead? I'm not sure.) Claire enters with The Haitian (can we give this guy a name? Lewis, maybe?) Claire, now into S&M gives Peter a slice here and a slice there intending to give him a slice for each person who died in Costa Verde. (Do you think Milo and Hayden practiced that bit at home? :-o)

Nathan enters and wants to speak to Peter alone. He tells Peter that Congress has agreed to create an army of heroes to fight all that is going on in the world (that's what I got from it, anyway). Peter, feeling the hunger from Sylar's powers, slices open Nathan's brain and kills him (?) Shocked at what he has done, Peter blinks away back to the present day, back to Sylar's cell on Level 5.

Parkman watches the newscast on the destruction of Costa Verde, fearing for his wife, Daphne. Some Mr. Mom. Molly's in the other room caring for Daniella, her baby sister. A knock on the door. Parkman rushes to it and opens it and sees Daphne (why is she knocking on her own door?) He's so happy to see her alive, but sadly she wasn't as fast as she thought. She stumbles in, her back all burned from the nuclear blast.

Present-day-Parkman wakes up from his milky-eyed trance wondering if he has time travelled to the future. Alas, he has not. With a sudden need to find Daphne and change the world, Parkman seeks help from his African guide. His guide tells him to find his totem, an animal that will be his familiar and guide him on his journey. Parkman's familiar? The icon for Turtle Wax he woke up gazing at in the season premiere. So off he goes, following the turtle - that is going to be one slow journey that will take us through to the end of the season, no doubt!

We find Hiro and Ando are not badass enough to be on Level 5. They are only badass enough to be on Level 2. Our buddies are having a lover's quarrel as Hiro is still upset that Future Ando killed Future Hiro. Hiro tries to escape through the air vent but The Haitian enters and takes them to Ma Petrelli. Ma P wants them to find the rest of the formula and I guess they only way they can do that is to dig up the dead - literally. She figures someone is manipulating the Company. Who could it be? She sends Ando and Hiro dig up Kensei who is pissing mad that he's been buried alive.

MY THOUGHTS/COMMENTS:

What happened to Nathan's family? I forget. Did his wife divorce him?

What I want to know is who's the mom to Sylar's kid? Any guesses? Do you think his name is Noah because he died saving Sylar and it's an homage to him? Hmm...

How did CDP know where Sylar was present day? Was Sylar in the cell when FP put CDP into Jesse?

What did you think?

"Annoyed herself, Maya drops her accent and takes off."

Funniest thing I've read in DAYS. Bravo, Connie.

I'm not sure that CDP actually killed Pres Nathan in the future... I think he stopped himself in time. That's a guess, based partly on the look on Petey's face, and partly on the fact that this show doesn't kill regulars anymore.

Hiro... Heaven help me... is actually starting to annoy. Why couldn't he just teleport out of Level 5? Don't tell me "Proximity to Lewis (the Hatian)." I call bull on that one... how far away was Lewie Lewie when CDP sliced open Nate's head in the future? Couldn't have been more than 4 steps outside that door.

Maybe Adam will slap Hiro around a bit for us. That'll make me feel better. :)

As for Nate's family, yeah, she divorced him. We learned that fairly early in Season 2, I think.

Sylar's baby-mamma... I have no informed guess. So, my crazy wild guess is that Mini-Noah is not Sylar's bio-kid... he took him in. I do like the guess that HRG-Noah died helping Sylar, which would account for the name. I'm probably wrong on all counts here, but it's fun to make wild guesses.

How did CDP know where Sylar was present day? Good question. :)

Thanks, Chuck. Personally, I liked my nod to sleestacks! :D

-- Posted by: Connie at October 8, 2008 12:34 PM

I was wondering also what happened to Nathan's wife. TY for the info Chuck.

My first thought of mini-Noah's mom was Maya. Didn't they hook-up? I can't remember, but I think you 2 are right about it not being Sylar's bio-kid and the homage with the name. After all, isn't that the way Sylar was raised if he REALLY is a Petrelli? Is he really Peter and Nathan's brother?

Did anyone notice the apron Sylar, I mean Gabriel, was wearing when CDP first showed up at the old Bennet house? It said "Hail to the Chief". I thought that was hilarious.

When CDP last saw Sylar, he was Jessie escaping from level 5. Sylar was knocked out and being carried away by HRG. He never ran into Sylar in the bank, he was taken away by FP before Sylar entered. So maybe he assumed Sylar would be safely locked up by HRG, after last seeing him as Jessie.

Nikki/Jessica/Tracy triplets, not clones. Bummer. Interesting though, how the doctor remembered everything about her and the tests he performed but not the company name. I mean if "Lewis" was gonna take away some of his memories, why not take them all?

I could honestly deal with more Maya in skimpier clothes and less Mo. I liked the sleestack reference, I also had a "Fly" moment in that scene with Peter.

As for Nathan being dead, isn't Claire just outside the door to revive him or do whatever she does to bring people back to life, ala HRG?

What ever happened to Monica? Did I miss something?

-- Posted by: lost4ever at October 8, 2008 6:12 PM

I think the Monica storyline played out. She and Micah were pretty much written out.

I had a Fly moment too, but I had to pick one or the other.

Here's a question - We know Tracy/Niki were a set of triplets. Barbara being the other the doc mentioned. I can't remember specifics but in Season 1 Niki said her twin had died - was it ever determined if the twin was a figment of her imagination/alterego or an actual person? Also, the doc said the three were separated so I am assuming Barbara is a hero we haven't seen yet.

I think the apron actually said "Hail to the CHEF." :o)

Don't remember if Maya and Sylar hooked up. I try to erase all images of Maya from my head as soon as I see her...

-- Posted by: Connie at October 8, 2008 6:51 PM

Hey guys, I just wanted to recommend this site...

http://watchheroesstreaming.com

...for those of you who need some help catching up on what happened.

-- Posted by: Lillian at October 9, 2008 3:48 AM

Why watch when you can backtrack and read my wonderful blog entries? :o)

-- Posted by: Connie at October 9, 2008 12:42 PM

Yes it was chef. How silly I am. I guess the presedential seal on it made me assume chief. I thought it funny him wearing it, seeing his brother is the president.

Can't remember about Niki, but I thought she made a visit to her sister's grave in Season 1. Now I am really confused on that whole storyline because I thought Jessica was actually her sister who was killed.

I hope they didn't write out Monica.

No Mo. Mo Maya.:)

-- Posted by: lost4ever at October 9, 2008 8:12 PM

I'm wondering why the heck Claire, Knox and Daphne would take on the two most powerful mutants of all time, Sylar and Peter, without the Haitian as insurance. I was also hoping to see future Claire get killed for being so self-righteous. Her team provoked Sylar into going nuclear by killing his son, but Peter's the monster?

Evil Parkman of season 1 was much more to my liking. The guy was bad-ass, and he didn't make any excuses for doing what he had to.

-- Posted by: Amirali at October 11, 2008 3:33 AM

Future Claire reminded me of HRG and the work he does for the company. Self-righteous, sure, maybe she picked that up from Peter along the way.

-- Posted by: lost4ever at October 13, 2008 2:13 PM

@Armirali - If the Haitian was there wouldn't Claire, Knox and Daphne lose their powers as well? It would then be a good ol' fashioned fistfight (Go to the body! Go to the body!)

-- Posted by: Connie at October 13, 2008 5:54 PM

I'm way behind in my Heroes watching. Good review, Connie.

Thanks for the reminder on Nathan's wife. I too was wondering where she was. I too am hoping that Anders smack Hiro around some. He's gone from one of my favs to least fav.

I'm probably in the minority, but, while I couldn't stand Niki, I actually like Tracey. Life's going along okay, then comes along this uncontrollable power.

Mo and Mya must go. I'm wondering if his father knew that Mo wouldn't be capable of effectively handling, which is why he kept away.

Don't like the future Claire. She's nothing like Noah. Yes, Noah could be cold and heartless, but, you got to understand in the end, it was about protecting his family. Claire? What's her motivation?

What happened to Noah, btw? And what did Sylar do in the past that he was left alone, living out in the open with his son?

Speaking of Sylar and his powers; I'm a little confused. When's he's splitting heads open, is it because he's trying to fix the problem or understand why it works the way it does. And in the process he kills them?

Is this what Peter was trying to do when he killed Nathan? Why was future Peter considered a villian?

Questions, questions, I know. I got plenty more; but, appreciate you all being patient while I got these off my chest ...

-- Posted by: Landa at October 15, 2008 5:41 AM

I'm a little behind, but since this question was asked and not answered, I thought I'd chime in with my 2 cents re CDP knowing where present day Sylar was (the Level 5 presidential suite).

In the future CDP took/absorbed/whatever Sylar's powers, so since Ma P gave him the "buffet" of the girl who can tell the history of anything she touches, this would tell CDP the history of Sylar and where he was when.

-- Posted by: Jennybell at October 16, 2008 2:28 PM

Good catch, Jenny! I need Cliff's notes for each episode!

-- Posted by: Connie at October 16, 2008 3:05 PM

In season 2 Elle was pursuing Peter with the Haitian at her side and she had her powers, so it is possible for him to select who's powers he nullifies.

The Haitian's absence bugs me too, because he was there at the beginning so Claire could kill FP and was there at the end so CDP couldn't escape. The only reason for his absence was so Sylar could go kaboom.

By the way; Claire, Daphne, and Knox threaten a kid and Peter's the terrorist??

-- Posted by: Carl at October 17, 2008 11:02 AM

Yea, I'm kinda thinking that Elle is Sylars kids mom. but im not sure. And i hope that monica comes back into the story.
