    Not aging could be an evolution of her powers, like like Matt's ability to manipulate people after he was able to read their minds for a while. The body grows to maturity for 20-30 years and then stops aging (or after a person has used their healing powers for a while).

    How did Adam and Victoria both know decapitation kills you for good? Have they seen/killed others? Highlander much? Wouldn't a big explosion like the one in White Beard's camp have the power to tear the body apart?

    We've seen Claire incapacitated with a foreign object in her head, so that fits. Of course with the brain pathways contributing to a person's personality, if the whole head were recreated, all those would be reset.

    Gotta go... I'm late for my Overthinkers Anonymous meeting...

    First of all, Micah has always had the comic books. Presumably, he collected them as they came out for $3 each, and now they're popular because Isaac is dead.

    Secondly, he's a kid. Most kids have little regard for property, expensive or not.

    Maybe that is why they showed a charred, but otherwise, intact, corpse after the explosion at White Beard's camp -- so we would know Kensei was not decapitated. After that, Kensei could have have picked up a clue about decapitation over the past 400 years. On the other hand, he could also have made it up to justify murdering Victoria to Peter.

    As for Victoria, didn't she indicate she was guessing when she was holding the shotgun? (I deleted the ep, so I cannot check.)
    See you at the meeting...

    Having valuable comic books doesn't mean one paid a high price for the comic books. I do doubt the 9th Wonder comic that was shown was being referred to as valuable; they're too recent. So the conversation probably was about comic books in general; Micah may even have had some collectible-quality comic books, too. But the one being flung around was just a present-day comic book, not a valuable/collectible one, at least not yet.

    When Matt was forcing Angela to reveal info about Victoria, she also revealed that since Adam had the power of regeneration, eventually his body stopped aging.

    Didn't Sylar say the key to the power was in the brain ... so if the brain is incapacitated the power does not work. We have seen this with both Claire and Peter.

    But that doesn't make sense with the story. If Micah simply has a valuable comic book, or they were simply talking about one that they saw at the store, what was the impetus for the cousin to steal Micah's backpack?

    Because Micah's valuable comic books were in the backpack.

    The whole Mohinder and his dad story is confusing. The virus is called the Shanti virus after his sister but it was built in a lab by a company that his dad didn't work for but he later found out about - huh ?? I'm lost :)

    The chemist lifted the virus from Mohinder's dead sister.

    Victoria Pratt took the virus from Shanti, although I'm not exactly clear on whether it was before or after Shanti was dead.

    What I don't get is that Peter can read minds, but he can't tell whether Victoria or Adam is the one telling the truth?

    .. and then mutated it (there was a certain strain they were looking for). Had the virus been in it's original form - directly from Shanti - the world population would have been wiped out 30 years ago.

    I did like that Peter used the dream power that he apparently picked up from Charles Deveaux. Clairvoyance?

    I think Peter has to be suspicious of Adam. Especially after he untied Victoria. Why the hell would anyone do that. She just tried to kill both of them a few moments ago. There's a shotgun laying three feet from where she's tied up. Duh!

    Furthermore, doesn't he trust Hiro? Time is frozen. Why not pause for a moment and ask "what do you mean he killed your father.... what do you know about this guy?".

    The episode was alright. It was a little disapointing after last weeks, which I thought was awesome. I am over the twins and Monica though.

    Does anyone else think Mohinder is an idiot?? He drives me mad with some of the stuff he says and does!!!

    Mohinder has always been somebody's patsy. Last season it was Eden, then Sylar. This time it's Bob and the Company.

    If it worked like it should, then peter shouldn't be able to use his powers while time is stopped.

    For instance, only items that he is touching should be in the timstop speed.

    If he shoots lightning, it should freeze in mid air, once he's not touching it, etc.

    However Hiro's blade can move in the stopped space because it is being touched by Hiro!

    I read this and thought you were referring to shirtless Skylar. Really! :)

    Well, he played a "she" in "So NoTORIous"...

    Sorry.

    I don't know how I could have ever confused the name of "Maya" with the name "Micah"... especially when I could care less about both of their boring characters and storylines.

    :rolleyes:

    If I was watching the show correctly the comics were only a secondary thing, I think he was more concerned about the medal his father gave him for being a "HERO" firefighter
