Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Ok, let’s strap in for the finish.
  • Micah’s the man.
  • Oh Tommy. Did you really think Erica was unprepared for you?
  • Ouch. That’s a painful intro to the Matrix.
  • Peter Pan flies again.
  • Well this seems like it could have gone better.
  • Or not. Welcome to the Future.
  • Ha ha. Everyone ditched Phoebe.
  • No room for psychos in the Brave New World.
  • Easy for Emily to say. It wasn’t her laptop.
  • Oh man, Ren. Kawaisou.
  • Little late to worry about HRG now, Quentin.
  • Zach, stepping up to the plate.
  • Hero time for Flynn Rider.
  • How did he even know his power could do that?
  • You know, I’m not sure pulling a bullet out fixes a person immediately, like True Love’s Kiss. I think whatever that bullet went through is probably going to need help too.
  • Hm. Tommy looks like he has a little episcleritis on his right eye.
  • Hiro got such a bum deal on this. I still don’t know why he had to stay behind.
  • For such a powerful ability, Malina can’t defend herself worth a darn.
  • Guess Zach was right. You can’t block a Glock.
  • Finally, crappy lab guy got his just deserts.
  • You go Otomo-San!
  • Why can’t Otomo-San just unmake the prison?
  • I feel like spending hundreds of hours in a video game maybe doesn’t necessarily qualify you to go in and save someone.
  • I spent hundreds of hours in Dragon Age, but I basically got really good at running away from fights and watching cutscenes.
  • Poor Emily is all “I have no idea what’s happening.”
  • Malina is sad for Quentin…but not too sad.
  • Let’s pause a moment and remember that Heroes Reborn had four major Japanese characters all played by actual Japanese people.
  • Heroes Reborn is awesome, if just for that.
  • Serious? Tommy couldn’t take them back to the minute after Ren left?  He had to give Erica time to catch up?
  • Maybe Tommy should just go back and stop HRG from shooting Erica and restore the original timeline.
  • Well ok Angela, maybe mention that they need a third person next time?
  • It seems like they could use just about anyone for the conduit. Why does it have to be someone willing?
  • The lab tech didn’t seem too willing. Why not use Erica?
  • Why can’t Nathan freeze HRG like Erica preserved Miko?
  • I can’t believe the only people who came out mostly unscathed were the boring LA Batman team.
  • There are a lot of awakenings going on nowadays.
  • “…And then they locked Quentin up and threw away the key.”
  • Wait, how did Angela get younger again?
  • Well, hope we find out who the father is sometime. Maybe we’ll see Claire in a flashback again.
  • I hope they do bring back Heroes again.  I just wish they hadn’t killed off most of the interesting characters this time around.

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Where is everyone evacuating to?  Mars?
  • Tommy is kind of a dupe.
  • Oh poor Emily is probably going to end up in the fridge with the rest of the girlfriends.
  • Poor clueless Ren.
  • I feel like maybe Zach should have had a better plan than “drive into Gateway.”
  • Since I don’t think we’re done with Erica, it’s looking bad for Parkman.
  • Why does Parkman even have to bother with Taylor?  Why doesn’t he just make Erica do whatever he wants?
  • Magic bands for the whole Parkman family!
  • This lab guy is a weak link.
  • I wonder why this dude didn’t just pretend to heal Erica’s dad normally?  She’d never know otherwise.
  • Oh.
  • Eew.
  • Luke is pretty ineffectual at restraining these guys.
  • Quentin, Quentin. Always switching sides at the worst possible times.
  • Ren and Emily!  The sadly underused sidekicks!
  • Their patron saint must be Ando.
  • Amazing. Ren found the only other person who also read the comics.
  • Tommy’s mom maybe didn’t do him a solid when she had Caspar give him amnesia.
  • So water and lightning are independent of time and space?
  • If Tommy really wanted his mom to be safe, he should maybe have set her up in a little house in the future.
  • Ugh. Erica’s life is just 10 pounds of ugh in a 5 pound sack.
  • Taylor must have some pretty good arm muscles, to hold this gun up for this long.
  • I like how this school printed all their photos in black and white, except for Claire.
  • I think the flaw in Zach’s plan is that Tommy will get there faster only if he sees Malina at the same time as Erica.
  • Did anyone tell Tommy not to suck out Malina’s powers?
  • Perhaps Tommy should have frozen time when he got there.
  • It’s psycho showdown!
  • Ok, Malina might not be that bright.
  • This is why they tell you not to telephone and drive, Parkman.
  • OMG, Baby Caspar!
  • Otomo-San had to know this was coming.

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Zachary is embracing his destiny in a pretty unquestioning manner.
  • Since they know what Tommy’s power is, it seems like they should figure out a good guess as to who took HRG.
  • Quentin, I don’t think your sister is alright.
  • If Tommy had the comic that showed exactly what happened, why is everything such a surprise?
  • Erica being this close to poor Otomo-San is torture by itself to most Japanese people.
  • Are you really going to take orders from LA Batman?  When he’s the most fail of everyone here?
  • Oh, LA Batman found his outfit.
  • Well see, Parkman is still the same lovable screw up.  Just with a homicidal bent.
  • I always wonder what people are thinking will happen, when they don’t hurry up and incapacitate Parkman.
  • Aw. Miko hearted Ren.
  • I wonder why Miko is dying now. Is she too far from the mainframe?  Or do the constructs only last a short time?
  • Bad Parkman, but not a big fan of the clones, either.
  • This is a lot for Jose to take in.
  • Why would clone guy and Phoebe just sit there and let Malina and Zachary run away?
  • “You can’t block a glock.”
  • If that wasn’t an ad lib, it should have been.
  • Convenient that Erica took him right back to where he was headed in the first place.
  • Poor twitchy Micah.
  • Malina isn’t the most strategically minded person.
  • You’d think Angela would have taught her a little deception while she was raising her.
  • Finally Zachary gets some redemption.
  • Quentin, you goober.
  • I would have threatened to shoot Phoebe, but I guess it worked out ok.
  • Weird, that Tommy’s girlfriend doesn’t seem too concerned about her non-evacuated family.
  • I think Tommy’s mother may have severely misjudged this situation.
  • This is one situation where Zach’s crazy wife would have come in handy.
  • The Father is more effective than LA Batman.
  • Ok, if you had done that from the beginning, maybe you’d still have a Father.
  • I wonder why the prime clone guy would do this, versus letting his clones take her?
  • I guess in a pinch, he could just cut off his hand or something, and make another.
  • Go Miko!
  • This makes all the sense for a Japanese construct.
  • LOL, Mohinder as a lousy actor.
  • Man, there is going to be a lot of traffic going into Odessa tomorrow.

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Man, I am so bummed this series was cancelled.
  • I dunno Zack. Whether he finds out you were an EVO serial killer now or later, I think HRG is gonna kick your ass.
  • Yeah Tommy. I think you got to Erica’s house and just “passed out.”
  • Maybe you were tired, what with being kidnapped and all.
  • Erica’s power is Anti-Hope.
  • That’ll teach those dicks to pick on a little Japanese girl.
  • Parkman, you have not improved with age.
  • The Car Ride of Exposition.
  • LOL.  Erica named her Tomorrowland after a failed PC company.
  • Wow, LA Batman is just a bagful of fail.
  • Farah isn’t much better.
  • Poor proto-HRG Zachary.
  • Miko is such a badass.
  • Wait, didn’t they kill her Dad?
  • Didn’t they kill Hiro?
  • Is this the Land of Only-Mostly Dead People?
  • You know, Phoebe might always have been a jerk.
  • I would probably try a little harder to incapacitate Parkman. He’s not going to be easy to control once he wakes up.
  • Look–Erica took Tommy went to the Land Pavilion at EPCOT.
  • Clone guy is not impressed with Parkman.
  • Oh ugh, LA Batman.
  • HRG is doomed to be constantly trying to protect girls determined to expose their powers.
  • Parkman, you jerk.
  • Oh man, Otomo-San, you totally faked me out with the Master of Time and Space thing.
  • Ok, if Malina is having this much trouble with this one storm, I don’t know how she’s going to stop the apocalypse.
  • Mundys are awful.
  • That was their big escape plan?  Run?

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Ok, took a break from this show for the holidays and a variety of disasters, but now it’s back and we’re behiiiind…
  • Barely remember where we left off.
  • Oh that’s, right. Quentin’s evil now.
  • Suresh voiceover!
  • Aw. Peter Pan’s going to lose his girlfriend to amnesia.
  • I guess it wouldn’t be a lot to process if you hadn’t had Caspar take all his memories.
  • “Well, when Zachary says he lost his purpose, he means he lost his kid and then joined his psycho wife in a massive killing spree. Wait, where are you going?”
  • Look, LA Batman, there’s no way this crooked cop isn’t going to betray you. Don’t even worry about it.
  • THE HAITIAN LIVES.
  • This chef is doing a terrible job of butchering.
  • Aw. Caspar decided she should always have Paris.
  • That is totally Grunberg on the PA.
  • I’ll be sad if she shoots Caspar. He’s the only reliably effective person around.
  • Sniffle.
  • Well at this point, maybe he could rewind a little and give Caspar another chance.
  • I can’t help thinking that LA Batman isn’t meeting up with a lot of success.
  • Bye Corrupt Cop.
  • Also, totes pot calling the kettle Parkman.
  • While Parkman gets points for neatness, I can’t help thinking he’s wasting a lot of non-degradable plastic with each guy.
  • Like Quentin doesn’t notice his sister turned into Morticia?
  • MIKO.
  • Oh, some time passed.
  • …What?
  • Suresh, you are so opaque.

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • I’m glad everyone takes everything Erica says as gospel.
  • Don’t do it, HRG. Too many butterflies.
  • Wow, that was a bad job HRG.
  • I’m not sure Erica’s going to bleed out immediately from a bullet wound through the side of her thigh.
  • Wow, Hiro got a raw deal here.
  • I don’t remember Peter actually absorbing people’s powers, as much as he just gained them.
  • He’s not going to see Claire in a year, HRG–you didn’t even see Claire.
  • Hey, maybe Rene survived in this timeline.
  • Oh HRG. You really should dump those memories now.
  • Ok, see look HRG. This is what people do when they find their dead kids. They uncover them to make sure it’s them.
  • Parkman!
  • Dammit, Parkman.
  • Alright Caspar!
  • Still don’t care about Los Angeles Batman.
  • Otomo-san has unfortunately backed the wrong horse.
  • HRG, you done screwed up bad.
  • Katana Girl’s origin story!
  • Hiro got older…and looks more like he did back in the day.
  • Nathan speaks Japanese!
  • I knew that RN looked familiar.
  • Wow, Nathan was a lot cooler than Tommy.
  • Otomo-san and Miko are the cutest.
  • Looking like my prediction that this poor frozen water EVO is going to be the first guy Zach’s crazy wife kills was exactly correct.
  • No Zach. Joanne’s not fine. I doubt she ever was.
  • Angela got a lot older looking than Hiro did in the same time span.
  • How was Invisible Girl going to protect Malina when she can’t even sneak up on Angela, with her eyes closed, doing her Hail Marys?
  • Poor Otomo-San. This is very AI-ish.
  • How can Nathan send people to places he’s never seen?
  • Yeah Molly, you might not want to be too fast to say you’d rather die than do anything.
  • Why didn’t Nathan have to worry about absorbing Molly’s power?
  • Why doesn’t Hiro just go with them? Isn’t he more of a loose end if he stays?
  • A sword might be the single worse weapon to use against clone guy.
  • I don’t think Tommy’s Mom was that good in the clinch.
  • Why did Caspar have to take everything, when he just took a day from HRG?
  • Quentin’s alive!
  • Dammit, Quentin.

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Mohinder the Handsome is back!
  • I have a hard time thinking Erica could hoodwink Angela Petrelli so thoroughly. Angela was always pretty sneaky.
  • Old Hiro! He looks so much happier when he’s wearing the glasses.
  • Oops. Say hi to Kevin Flynn in there, Hiro.
  • Oh Phoebe is going full Anakin in this one.
  • How are Zachary and his not-yet-psycho wife going to take this kid to an outdoor festival, when any exposed skin instantly burns to a crisp?
  • Molly in her pre-skank days.
  • Why are HRG and Hiro even bothering to sneak around, when Hiro can just freeze everyone and they could walk around checking everything out at leisure?
  • I guess we’re not going with the Lazarus Effect on this time-travel model.
  • Yeah, Hiro–you might not want to chop this dude into too many pieces.
  • Never bring a knife to a clone fight.
  • Ok wait. Are we thinking that the bombs cloned as well?
  • How could all the alternatives to all those people exploding be worse?
  • I bet this poor water-freezing EVO is the first one Zach and his wife off.
  • Twins! I bet they take one to Alderaan, and one to Tatooine.
  • I really feel like HRG would look at Claire’s face. I don’t even know that they would cover her, given that she wasn’t in an accident or anything, and probably looks fine.
  • I also don’t get how a cardiac arrest would kill her. She came back from being burnt almost to ashes, and I’m pretty sure she died of cardiac arrest then, too.
  • I’m guessing “Tommy” isn’t his real name.
  • Actually, I think it would have been more fun if Angela had named the son “Sylar,” after the son she tried to manipulate into believing was her son.
  • HRG seems a lot readier for Angela Petrelli to raise his grandchildren than I would be.
  • Hiro and the baby. Cutest.
  • Man, I knew that RN looked familiar.
  • Nathan definitely got the “Uncle Owen/Aunt Beru” end of the stick on this one.
  • HRG is sick and tired of not being able to shoot anyone.
  • Why would HRG try to stop himself, when he already knows Erica is going to kill everyone?
