    BTW, we now have confirmation that, despite some assertions to the contrary in last week's thread, Elle wasn't using the term "Dad" ironically on the phone.

    I never get tired of being right. :D

    The whole blood thing kind of bothers me. The writers have already established that the powers are controlled by the brain, so why would a blood transfusion give powers? Even the family lineage doesn't tie into this because your genetics are not directly tied to your blood, are they?

    Apparently you weren't here for the "Did Sun sleep with her English teacher" arguments on the Lost threads. Around here, having irrefutable evidence that you were right and they were wrong is no defense. :D

    I don't watch Lost. I still owe JJ Abrams a swift kick in the nuts for wasting 5 years of my life with Alias. :)

    Really predictable episode. I thought it was just ok for that reason. I knew a while back when nathan was healed by adam that HRG was going to die but get healed. I also felt they broadcasted suresh's moral quandary too much. And Adam killing Kaito was pretty obvious at this point.

    I do like the implication that Elle is maybe rethinking her loyalties. And that parkman did cross the line with angela petrelli.

    There are a few people we haven't met in the photo of the company... victoria, the hispanic guy, and the african american lady.

    I wasn't surprised. As soon as HRG was shot, knowing that Bob had taken some blood from Claire, I knew he was going to be healed by her blood.

    But the guy on the table could have been Hiro's father, with some weird twist with Adam...

    I hadn't thought that getting blood gave you healing power, more like it's a one shot deal for what ails you. You get healed, but once it's out of your system you're back to normal.

    I'm not, I'm generalizing. They've already painted themselves out of a corner once using a photo of one actor and changing it later. (The Papa Suresh book jacket.)

    Good point -- Was Suresh always so wimpy or has it just been since the Hatian?

    I noticed that, too. Great work playing with depth-of-field on that - it was a cool visual trick where I expected one of their faces to be out of focus at any one time.

    Suresh was justified given what his character has seen. There is a real virus and claire's blood would be very useful. HRG seems quick to kill people just to protect his family and does not seem to have the best interests of the world at heart anymore. Everything he knows about the company that is bad came from HRG's mouth. His own experiences indicate that they are not all that evil so far.

    So, if Suresh's blood cured his sister, and Claire's blood cured HRG, and Adam's blood cured Nathan, what does that say about Suresh?

    Is it possible Suresh shot HRG as a ruse with the full intention of reviving him with Claire's blood?

    No, it still seems out of character. He couldn't even kill Sylar when given the chance...but he doesn't seem to hesitate to shoot HRG in the head???

    Parkman told Angela the others were dead, which is why he was trying so hard to find Victoria, so I'm guessing we're never going to find out anything about them.

    Great ep. While I saw the water thing with Elle coming I was pretty surprised about everything else. I was looking forward to Elle's reaction. But otherwise, I'm glad I don't try too hard to figure stuff out. It is much more fun being surprised.

    Hispanic guy, huh? I wonder if any relation to the Vene Twins?

    Do we know Niki's mom? Maybe Victoria. And the AA is Devaux, no?
