Heroes: 3.21 - Into the Asylum

Into-Asylum.jpgNathan and Claire are on the run in Mexico. Since they can't use credit cards, they need cash. Claire pawns a necklace HRG gave her. Nathan figures he can at least double those bills by outdrinking a bunch of college boozers down in Mexico looking for a good time and alcohol poisoning. Nathan's not a young college undergrad anymore and passes out. The reckless Claire offers to take his place and catches up by drinking the same number of shots as Nathan.

With the grace of God, her ability to heal includes a regenerating liver. Not sure why she felt the need to whip off her shirt to drink herself to pancreatitis heaven... In a Gift of the Magi moment, Nathan sells his watch to buy Claire's necklace back.

Danko sends HRG on a mission to find and capture Ma P. Testing his trust and loyalty.

Danko and Sylar team up. One of us, one of them. With Sylar's help, Danko catches a shape shifter and then offers him up to Sylar for a snack. Crapola, now Sylar has shape shifting abilities! That pretty much makes him unstoppable, don't you think? I'm gonna say it's also a big mistake on Danko's part.

Peter and Ma P find themselves in a church (it looks like the church at the mission in Santa Barbara...) as they plan their next move. Ma P is feeling quite regretful and nostalgic for times gone by.

Sylar offers to help Danko capture all the heroes so he can take their abilities and ultimately be the only one left. Do you think his body/brain has a max capacity for abilities. Too much and he... explodes or something like that?

Danko shows HRG the dead body of Sylar, but in reality it was the shape shifter Danko and Sylar caught. I would have thought the shape shifter would have turned back to original form after dying, but that's just my logic. How does his voice change too with the shape shifting? Shape shifting vocal cords?

In the end, the episode was more about family and relationships than it was about heroes, but I'm down with that.

No Hirando this week.

What did you think?

I like this new direction of Heroes, I really do. It's looking like it's going to be more character driven and there's more focus with attention being give to a few characters per episode instead of feeling the need to have a spotlight on the entire Heroes cast. he yeah and the story is interesting too. Glad to see Micah back. I've missed seeing his character. Oh, and Cyler is now a shape shifter? Omigosh, this is going to be fun! Can't wait for next week's episode.

Did anyone else feel like this episode was much better constructed? I hadn't realized how clunky some of the other recent shows had been until seeing the seamlessness of "Asylum." I hope that continues because this show's comic book core could make for a phenomenal storytelling device. The creators just need to keep the focus, which they clearly did in this ep.
