Lumberjack Nathan is awesome. When does origins start?

I was totally waiting for claires toe to not come back and fully confuse her and make her think she was all shit, but really it would be like what the teacher said and the pinky has become redundant like the appendix so the body only rejuvenates what is necessary.

And why didn't she bleed? He toe came off like a dead person. (Not reading anything into this, I reckon its just a fuck up).

What are the chances that Kensei is still alive in modern time, with his healing powers and all? can Kensei/Claire die of old age?

maybe kensei was linderman.. and hiros time travel was pre-destined but that would create a pretty mindwarping paradox.

dont want to think about this while im stoned.

Linderman wasnt a rejuvinator I dont think, he was a healer, otherwise he would be sweet with the hand in brain thing.

Kensei does come to the future, either via Hiro or by just staying alive. so yeah, i assume hes immortal. the same way they cant give an accurate age to wolverine cause he doesn't change.

i think it would work that you age until your prime, then once you hit that point you stop aging because your body will repair any dieing/aging cells but not create new ones.

Oh real. Hmmmm.....dunno if I buy that. Cause after she showed that photo with the symbol on it which she got in EP1 which Hiros dad got as well, which means they die within 24 hours. I reckon someone was trying to murder her but got interrupted.


wait I was talking about nathan...?

oh yeah like . said...

theres some other spoilers concerning Kensei but i dont think i'll post em here, you can read up on them if you use google though. haha.

Looking good. Glad to see some familiar faces making a comeback, waiting til the 3rd ep was well-timed.

Think it's a BIT coincidental though ... Claire and superboy meeting up, I bet that Irish girl has powers too :-D

Mm, the flying shit looked awful. And yeah, I was thinking the same thing re: the Irish woman.

Was good to see Sylar back, although I'm intrigued as to whats going on with his powers - and where the fuck was he? The island from Lost?

Bit of a tangent, but wolverine does age. They released a series on xmen set in the future where wolverine is an old man, around 300years old (he was about 200-250 yrs old in the days of xavier), shit doesn't work so well for him and he starts to fuck out. Its about him trying to find out about his original family and shit in canada. Pretty good read.

I say hurl. If you blow chunks and she comes back, she's yours. But if you spew and she bolts, then it was never meant to be.

the twins got slightly interesting with the discovery of sylar, but thats all.


parkmans dad is the big bad? nah . . . i rekon she just saw the big bad in the picture. heh. but could be, i dunno. if it is parkmans dad they definately used a different actor on the roof, cause that guy looked pretty big where'as roof killer looked regular sized. but what'eves.


claires storyline is going down hill so fast. i hope sylar eats her brain, and flyboys. ugh. irritating as.

no peter and no hiro = lame. mostly because their storylines need to wrap up asap so they get back to the US.

but if HRG and the Haitian going to the Ukraine, via Ireland (doubt it though, ha).


also, its a bit odd that the Petralli dad is looking backwards in the photo as if talking to someone, invisible guy ?

black girls power is to copy? other powers maybe? please say no . . . ha.

lol at molly, hope she stays on a coma thing. i hates her preciousss. dirty hobbits.


pretty good ep overall though. mostly for plot moving forward than anything else.

Yeah, two men living together looking after a little girl...

I think this season's gotten away to a wobbly start - is it just me or is the writing really kinda z-grade at the moment? I mean, shit, amnesia?? I don't think even daytime soaps try that anymore...I guess this is just a weak way to keep Peter out of things because he's so damn powerful. In the same manner that it seems REALLY forced keeping Hiro in the past...

Learn everything off TV chick is a laugh.

Origins has got some interesting people involved, even if I hate the idea of an anthology series. Kevin Smith, Eli Roth, John August...it'll be interesting to see what they come up with, at any rate.

Real? It just feels like in X-Men they way they always had to knock Professor X out because he was too damn powerful and could solve any problem.

Hiro's plot is boring for me because it all happened in the past, we know where it's going and it doesn't have much bearing on things now. I'd have preferred he met Kensei in the present rather than fluffing about like this. Or just have Ando skim through those notes in one quick go to get it over with.

Peter's one is a bit better, because it feels like the Irish stuff *might* relate to the main plot, even if it also feels like they're just trying to recapture that 'discovering your powers' feeling of wonder that Season One had that they now can't really have anymore. And yeah, I agree with everyone that it'll be a shock if Irish girl DOESN'T have powers - hopefully hers are better than Mohinder's power to give pompous, meaningless voiceover speeches.

It's just it feels forced to 'neutralise' those whose powers are so big they can fuck with the plot and get out of any problem they're put in - so Peter can't remember, Hiro is in the past and Sylar appears to have lost his powers.

And does anyone else remember the 2000AD comic Zenith? Because this is sounding a fuck of a lot like it with the whole "our parents were superheroes, too, but hid it away...and were involved in the whole plot where superpowers come from" angle. Bit like the way Season One was similar to Watchmen in its main plot arc.

I dunno, I'm still enjoying it...it just has some awkward writing at times. A lot of convenience and coincidence ("Hey, we set up our lab in Isaac Mendez' old flat...and guess what, he just happens to have a few extra paintings lying around even though Linderman supposedly bought them all in the last season...just because that whole painting thing was a neat way of foreshadowing everything last year...") and it seems everyone with powers just happens to blunder into someone else with powers, regardless of where they are in the world.

i assumed the jungle was part of that chicks power / his inability to control it once he first got it (as he generally does when he first gets a power) and he was actually just in a shed in mexico somewhere.

Yeah, I didn't get that AT ALL - I thought he was huffing and puffing about the fact that he couldn't get her power?
