WHY DID DAPHNE HAVE TO DIE? *WHY* DID DAPHNE HAVE TO DIE?! Her character had such a short and unfortunate run - alas, such is the lot of the tolerable female characters on Heroes. I was very sad to see her go.
As for Parkman...only time will tell what happens here. Because we just know the baby and Janice are going to pop up in his life all of a sudden, and despite his excellent new power-use effects, I'm guessing most of his screen time will be angst-filled.
HIRO AND ANDO ARE FINALLY BACK WHERE THEY NEED TO BE. Two freaking seasons of utterly painful sideplots and now they are FINALLY just as fun as they were before. This is the only episode out of Chapters Three and Four so far that Hiro and Ando have made me really smile like they're supposed to. They're doing the hero thing, they had their touchy-feely moment, there was snappy pop-culture-reference-dialogue, hijinks involving stuffed toys and wheelbarrows ensued, and (most importantly) Toddler Touch-And-Go Parkman gave Hiro (some of) his powers back! I don't know exactly where this is leading yet, but I'm sure we'll find out.
...and I wonder what would happen if Touch-And-Go met with Peter? Hmmm...
On a final note, because I thought I noticed this and thought it was really odd, was it just me or was the Statue of Liberty cross-eyed?
