It’s Coming (The Fatal Blow nobody saw Coming)

After It’s Coming, the Heroes Universe went crashing down. This will be followed by a two part Eclipse that already promises to leave the Heroes plot line dragging itself in shame deeper into the sewers.

I understand the idea and metaphor behind The Eclipse, it’s much like The Second Coming. The eclipse, a moment where all is dark and abilities are gone, a eclipse, a momentary distraction that makes one forget that were about to start an all out war in the Heroes Universe. I get it. But right now, after a lagging three episodes, i think it would be best if we just went at it and started fighting. I think that the writers have a wall, much like Laurall K Hamilton’s wall with Post-Its with the will happens ideas for the NicEssus series and much like my own Biology Notebook that rather than housing notes about my class, houses plot ideas, character ideas, should writes and half assed- poems that I wrote in the middle of lecture. And on of those was led on by the Arthur Petrelli steals powers idea that must have been the origin of the Eclipse episode idea.

What would happen if they ALL lost their abilities? I can tell you: a shitful of Company issued Guns, Angela having something to say about their fortune; Mohinder’s eyes wide open at the large number of new test subjects and Sylar going over to the dark side again, possibly killing some characters that would make the Heroes Universe much simpler and gaining a new sense of direction. Possibly, I really have no idea, but I think that after this episode, we will either have to cheer in the brilliance of the writers, or go crawl in bed with Supernatural seasons 1-3 and watch that instead, after renouncing Heroes forever. Oh and at the end, they will ALL have their powers back, this i predict.

Anyway. About It’s Coming.

Sylar is an empath, who knew?

I did not, but I guessed after I heard somewhere that something “shocking” was going to be revealed about Sylar’s powers, since in The Second Coming, we got one answer, I could only imagine they were going to make something up, especially after the much impromptu and not very well though out Elle/Sylar thing. So I guessed, and I was right. Sad but true.

So right now, the two part Eclipse ordeal, to which I am looking forward, to see if Heroes is redeemable, is looming and then the war can start up again.

On good thing about this episode though, is how at the end, the characters were shown gathering, each to their leader, one by one, letting us know where the line was drawn. Except for Hiro, who thinks’ he’s ten and going crazy in Japan with Ando freaking out. Seriously writers, could we not think of another way of distracting Hiro? Anyway,

It’s Coming!!

Heroes, Thomas Friedman, English and the Crazy Street Preacher.

Today was, interesting. After a boring Anthropology test, I skipped BIO100 class (yeah i know, and i don’t care) and a mostly (except for a little brain tease and a chapter of the Baghavad Gita) boring ENG class. I ran into ASU’s crazy preacher and a disappointing trip to the library, i finally got home in time for Heroes.

So, from the beginning.

My Anthropology test was fifty questions long and took about fifteen minutes to finish, it was mostly a boring play with words. I am quite certain that i failed it, because i apparently wasn’t paying attention in class as well as i thought (next time, I’ll have to refrain from reading Yeats during class) After that I walked over to breakfast. I read a bit afterward and then after my iPod battery died I went back home to recharge it and maybe watch TV before English, since I had already decided to skip BIO.

I fell asleep and woke up just in time to get to English, where I read the first and second chapters of the Baghavad Gita, because the teacher went on analyzing Thomas Friedman’s latest Op-Ed. I am a big Friedman (The World is Flat) fan, but unfortunately, my English class dissected and analyzed the article past the point of no return. Which made me mad, because they missed the whole overall (holistic) point of the article.

Then after class I ran into the Preacher who goes by JK (Just Kidding maybe?) He went on for about an hour and a half screaming about Jesus hating everyone and how he was a prophet of the lord because he wasn’t a “perverted homo masturbating weed-head” like us (which made everyone laugh). He only seems to serve as comic relief for us. He promised to be there again, so i have to remind myself to take my Bible to contradict him, if he ever stops shouting that is. Which leads me to believe, sincerely, that he is on something, weed perhaps? or maybe some prescription stuff?

After this, I managed to get home again, eat, sleep for about an hour, then watch some Stargate Atlantis and then finally Heroes!

Heroes: Villains (I love writing that) episode 303: One of Us, One of Them, started out with Flint, The German, Knox and Peter (in Jesse’s Body) starting out a bank heist, while Mama Petrelli purposefully gave Sylar (Gabriel Gray) a new ability, and Noah Bennet meet his new partner, who happens to be (as i predicted) Sylar, who is now beginning to explore a new ‘good’ side.

At the end of the episode, Micah meets Tracy (who, as i also predicted, is a clone) and Future Peter finally pulls Peter out of Jesse and then everything goes to hell as Knox escapes, Sylar harvests Jesse’s power, Flint gets shot, and The German is possibly dead, much to my grief because The German seems like such a calm and twisted individual.

Meanwhile Claire and Meredith have a little masochistic mother-daughter talk, when Meredith forces Claire to explore her feelings via locking her in a metalic train wagon and heating up.
