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:

  • 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:

  • HIIIIIRRROOOO
  • Kind of a pugilistic episode, apparently.
  • Ew. I hope they don’t reuse those restraining devices.
  • Man, Ren is the guy in the coffee shop that sits there all day with one cup of coffee, playing his computer loudly and yelling into his earphones.
  • Zachary isn’t that good with voice mail.
  • Yeah, Zachary isn’t helping the EVOs seem less creepy.
  • Ok Miko. In the US, people take a dim view on getting their stuff took.
  • Renautas is at 88 HILL VALLEY ROAD.
  • When this goes into syndication, no one will ever understand the significance of that and the original air date week.
  • Wow, that seems like a poorly designed device when it’s that obvious.
  • It is a good thing Ren’s computer turns on, logs onto the game, and picks up a wifi signal instantaneously.
  • …But even Ren’s supercomputer succumbs to crappy battery life.
  • Ok, actually, I don’t know why Ren doesn’t just run around the block to the nearest Starbucks to plug in. It doesn’t seem like he needs to physically be there, like Katana Girl.
  • Wait, serious? That whole scene was nothing but her not finding Francis and crying?
  • That was like a stub of a scene.
  • Tommy is basically breaking and entering at this point. No wonder they don’t trust EVOs.
  • Wow, this girl is the least stealthy with her powers ever. She may not make it without the also-not-that-stealthy invisible girl.
  • This is the week for all the EVO’s to abuse their powers. How can we trust them if they can’t even be trusted to hold to the compact of the vending machine?
  • Emily is becoming too good to be true. I think she just said “Gosh!” Unironically.
  • Why on Earth would Miko start beating on HRG and Quentin, when she knows the clone guy is evil?
  • Good thing HRG still has his Japanese from when George Takei was in charge.
  • Well if you wanted to blow your cover, that was a pretty effective way to do it.
  • Oh that was surprisingly unsubtle for HRG.
  • OMG. Why are they all just standing there, when they know everyone on the planet has been alerted to their presence?
  • And why wouldn’t they keep the programmer as hostage? Wouldn’t he be their only leverage?
  • Nice callback to the artist who could only draw when he was on heroin or something.
  • Wait. So you’re telling me clone guy sat there and shot at bulletproof glass forever when you can walk around it?
  • So this is great until Quentin talks Phoebe down and all these bits of clones regenerate into an army.
  • Poor Ren. Got “I know’d.”
  • Oh man! Quentin bought it! From Phoebe!
  • What’s this…?
  • HIIIIRRRROOO!
  • Aw, he lost his accent.
  • Oops. Taylor’s got a half-EVO bun in her oven.
  • I don’t know that I would drink anything Evil Cop gave me.
  • Wow, I can’t believe these guys are just going to hang out after everyone just saw she has powers and probably called the cops.
  • …That tracker was pretty close to some important vessels. I don’t know if I’d want some teenager digging around in my wrist like that.
  • If Emily turns out to be evil, I’ll be sad now.
