    Didn't Hiro say something in the funeral episode about coffins in Japan being buried empty? In which case, it would have been Kaito's empty coffin.

    I think Ali Larter will be back, but I'm hoping she's not Niki. Jessica and Gina are a lot more fun and they might fit into the Villains motif of Chapter 3. Plus they didn't show us a body. I noticed that she had the same strain of the virus as Sylar, the one which took his powers, but didn't kill him, so maybe they intend to bring her back.

    I think Adam will be back as well. Adam, Sylar, and Jessica would be quite a good nucleus for a group of supervillains.

    As for Nathan, I can see that one going either way.


    I struck me as really odd that Elle has been walking around with her arm in a sling for two episodes. The Company has Claire's blood, which they used on HRG, which they were going to use on Niki and which got used on Maya and Sylar instead. But, Bob won't use it to heal his daughter?

    I would think they'd consider that limited quantity of blood as somewhat precious. Why waste it on a something that is really just a superficial wound?

    If we are going to be a stickler for plotholes, wouldn't they be big enough to fly a starship through? ;)

    As long as the starship has wheels it's probably the same size of hole and thus irrelevant. Unless the starship is on a treadmill.

    I thought they handled the depiction of flight better in this episode, generally. They did it with practical effects rather than special effects. We saw people's feet landing, etc. No real fakey-looking greenscreen stuff this time.

    The mini clip show that they ran (I think it was during Nathan's speech?) where they showed highlights of the season saddened me. It saddened me because those were all good clips. A series that featured all those moments should have been better then this season panned out to be. For me, this season was definitely less than the sum of its parts. Here's hoping that they pull it together for Volume III, whenever that may wind up being.

    Niki yes
    Nathan No

    We'll find out whether or not you can regenerate after you've been given some heal-me blood. No one's been killed AFTER they were given the heal-thyself blood until Nathan. My guess is that Nathan's body starts spitting bullets out and sucking his blood back in wiping away the wounds. Makes sense to me...especially since he didn't take a slug to the forehead like mama Petrelli said Pete and Adam needed. I know, I know, I know, I know, Nate's not immortal so he might not've needed that big of a wound. Still, if'n they wanted to make double sure he'd die they coulda given him a .38 frontal labotomy. Or, as they say on "Farm Film Celebrity Blow-Up" they coulda targeted Nate and made sure they "blowed it up real good" ala Nilki.

    Could be...but even if Adam's blood has no permanent effects on Nathan, Peter has the same powers, knows how Adam administered the cure, and is right there holding his brother. It might not work, but Peter might at least ditch the crowd and give it a shot.

    Of course, Peter would have to demonstrate far more intelligence about his powers than he has shown in the past to figure it out.

    I really hope this is the case.

    One of the reasons I watch this show is Adrian Pasdar, but one of the reasons I dread watching is Nikki (nothing against Ali Larter, but the character is a drag). I really hope Nathan isn't gone for good.

    Nikki would be a great character if not for all the plot contrivances to prevent her from using her power. Oh wait, that's true of almost all characters in this show.

    I just watched this episode, and I kept being irritated how they gave Peter all these powers, but doesn't let him use them (as has been mentioned elsewhere in the thread). What really bugs me is that it's just lazy writing - it would be very simple to create situations that would follow the internal logic, while at the same time being suspenseful, if they just made it so Peter could only use one power at a time.

    I liked the episode overall, but I really don't care anymore about any of the characters, and that has been brought on mostly by really bad, sloppy and lazy writing.

    So HRG just shot Nathan, Claire's father. I certainly wouldn't want her to find out about that... It is something he would do though. The 'keep my family safe no matter how many people I murder' excuse would fit.

    I also don't think that the Sylar is back storyline will be the main story. I expect that a war is brewing between the "old guard", represented by the Company and the new genereration of Heroes. That may be the "Pandora's Box".

    Since people keep bagging on Peter for being not-so-bright, that actually brings up something that I was thinking of a few episodes back – did Peter actually ever finish his training with Claude?

    I haven't seen Volume 1 since the original broadcasts, but I seem to remember that Peter's training was left incomplete (in terms of both the powers that he had at the time and his ability to juggle/combine them). Maybe I'm combining episodes but I recall Claude running off (all paranoid) after they (Peter & Claude) got ambushed on the Devereaux rooftop by HRG.

    Or am I simply going easy on the Heroes team?
