As were the other 2 seasons....
I miss it!
Does Peter even know he can control time and space? Does he know that Hiro can do the same?
If he did, he would be extremely motivated to use that power to retrieve Caitlin.And he has yet to do so. His recent movement through time was not done voluntarily or at least wittingly.
In fact, his knowledge of his powers only comes by accident as I have seen it.
Doesn't he have to eat?
Or can he just regenerate muscle when his body breaks it down for food. So not only is he buried alive, but he's also really hungry.
But he'll get out in several hundred years when the casket erodes and he slowly digs his way out.
Actually I thought Hiro was going to teleport him to the prehistoric times with the dinosaurs
But in the coffin together they'd be touching so wouldn't Adam get teleported back out?
I'm probably smeeking a lot at this point. Hmm...
What good would that do? He'd still live through time and be back.. and there would be two of him at some point.
He should have teleported to the moon and left him there and ported back.
Or 100000 years into the future.
Ockham's razor, right?
We see HRG say "I made a deal with the company". Company doesn't want Heroes exposed to the world.
So HRG shot Nathan.
But taking Ockham's Razor from another angle, the simplest explanation is that the writers haven't decided who just killed Nathan (and that's why they didn't show us anything).
That would be my guess.
Up to this point I didn't think Elle was a very interesting character, but now that she's questioning her father and yet loving him so much and wanting to please him, I think she's really good. I hope at some point she'll discover that her real father is one of the good guys and that Bob just raised her like HRG did Claire--only he's a cold-hearted jerk.
And I hope there is more Elle/Claire interaction. Together they were pretty entertaining to watch and I usually just find them annoying teenagers (though Elle is probably older she acts like an annoying teenager.)
Typical comic book stuff. We didn't actually see Niki die. Therefore she is alive. Even if we saw her die, she will come back to life if required for some plot point.
Adam will of course be dug up by someone. This is typical of the "imprisoned but can't die" motif. "Immortal" is walled up behind bricks, buried alive, dumped in the ocean in a steel cage, locked in an iron maiden, etc, to suffer for all eternity. Until someone sets them free.
Smeeking what somebody else said, Heroes really is like a comic book. Nobody ever stays dead, unless necessary for a plot point. Well, unless they are needed later by another plot point. Putting limitations on people to further the plot is also the norm (see kryptonite). If you don't put limitations on all-powerful characters you don't have much conflict.
If he knew how to find the virus. This was a large facility. There were lots of twisty corridors and even Adam had a problem remembering which way to go at one point. The same could have been true in the vault -- how to identify the virus. I think Adam could have easily convinced Peter that they needed to go together to correctly find and ID the virus.
Or they could've just teleported into the safe and it would've been done.
But then what would the other 59 minutes of show have been about?
That's probably EXACTLY what the lazy writers said.
As I said before, Peter has not knowingly used teleportation or time surfing. I don't think he knows he has that power.
By now he would have to be a complete idiot NOT to know.
Then again, he's a complete idiot, so...
How did Peter back from future New York back to present day Montreal -- didn't Mama Petrelli say that he had to go back, and that Peter himself somehow transported himself? (Ok, he could have flown from NY->Montreal, but something would have had to get him through time first.) Unless I am forgetting another on-screen explanation, Peter would have to suspect he had at least time travel ability after making that journey.
And because it's like a comic book it's not at all surprising that S2 was basically a rehash of S1. As far as I know (and I'm no expert), most comic-book stories are pretty similar to each other. Swap out the power, swap out the villain, swap out the motivation (girlfriend, family, save the world, etc.) but overall the stories are pretty formulaic. Therefore not surprising that S2 essentially mimics S1. What did we expect them to do? Have the heroes go to work in a forensic crime-solving unit, or take jobs in a hospital?
