Reaction Time: Cold Snap Part II (Spoilers)

PARKMAN/DAPHNE:

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/ANDO

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?

i was kinda upset when Daphne diedi never thought for a moment that Matt was just in her headuntil i saw him fly [That Superman/Lois Laneflying over the city thing was mad cheesy]i really would have preferedif they let her get better and run off to paris for realbecause that way she could at least come back in the next season.I think her death is gonna affect Matt in a serious way from here oni have a feeling hes jut gonna go crazy against the Building 26 peoples
Its annoying thoughso far they have killed off Elle Tracy and Daphnein this seasonwhich leaves only Claire as the main female herounless Ali Larter comes back again as the 3rd and last triplet in the next season but i want more
and as For Hiro Ando And baby touch and goOMG when Hiro stopped time i literally jumped out of my seati've been waiting and wondering for aaages how he was gonna get his powers back.i did love this side storyit was emotional, funny and exciting all at the same timeI freakin loved when ando shot that thing out of his hand and got too excited in celebrating to notice that there were more guys coming in hahaclassic Hiro and Andoi hope they carry this on for the rest of the season

+1 on putting Spoiler alerts here.
I though Daphnes death was dealt with really well, most deaths on this show are about 3 seconds long, and whilst i'm at it Tracys was pritty badass too.
Only down-point was a show without Sylar.
8.5/10Great episode.

i really loved the show and was hoping things would get back on track, like season 1, but some things just get keep getting worse. the constant explaining by the characters of whats happening (ex: how in the past few episodes sylar has to say everytime someone lied... we know he has the power we dont need him explaining every second like a narrator... or like in this past episode when "baby touch and go" makes hiro's powers work.. does hiro actually have to say baby touch did it and spell out every thing that happens...)if something is too complicating for the watchers to realise on their own then the writers must be doing something wrong. truth be told, i didnt realise that "baby touch and go" helped hiro because it doesnt really make any sense... hiro's powers werent simply hidden from him or weakened, they were taken away by arthur petrelli and unlike peter who shot himself with the formula there seems to be no logical way for hiro to have gotten back any power....

winfield87- they really should have killed half of those women off! they leave the boring ones like suresh and kill of some decent characters! But what i was going to say is, isnt tracy the third sister? Niki was first and we already know jessicas dead so tracy makes 3??

Although I agree about this one having some low points, It was the best this volume. Also, I like how we have a definite bad guy again in Danko rather than Nathan being all whiny with him and not having a clue where he stands. It was getting fairly annoying.

I don't know about cross-eyed but they made the same mistake everyone makes with Statue of Liberty sets. They made it too big. It isn't a big room up there.

This heroes episode was so bad it felt like a fish out of water just as its life is finally extinguished. Heroes doesn't know what it wants nor does it actually have a real point or goal anymore. I was SO ANGRY when the NBC executives decided to kill the deep,thought provoking 4400 off of their subsidiary station USA and bring about the crowd pleasure Heroes.
At first I was like oh this is okay somewhat good but now I am finally sick of these plots designed to drag out the series which as of right now is headed into the ground and about to be canceled. I am just pissed off that they took all of the air and resources out of 4400 before it could at least have a proper finish to invest in Heroes which has now officially fallen short.
Evidence: Heroes is 4400 copy
Burkoff=SureshHiro time travel + Tom Baldwin time travelPromicin= mystery formulapromcin soilders =formula soildersNtAC=pinehearst and primatechthe shootings of 4400's Collier and Heroes' Nathan Petrelli, both featuring a young girl whose name starts with 'M' with an ability that makes her seem very useful to some dubious peopleKyle's ability seems to have moved to Heroes and manifested Nathan for some reason!Jordan Collier could take peoples powers away, Arthur Petrelli could do the same thing.Jordan Collier introduces Promicin, Arthur Petrielli introduces wonderdrug.
THERE! IVE VENTED!
WELL THERE IS ONE THING THAT REDEEMS HEROES SOMETIMES, but still not to often and that is the character of Sylar. He is the only character with any real depth on the show and the fact that he wasnt in this episode just shows how crappy the rest of the plot and characters are.

I agree with most of this review, but let's face it people, Heroes is not what it used to be. People don't actually stay dead. I really wouldn't have minded if Tracy had died and they'd brought in barbara, the third twin, cuz I'm sure the moment tracy dies, it's what they'll do; but hey, at least it'll be a new character right?
And does it make sense to anyone why they have all of those 'supernaturals' knocked out with drugs but they didnt do that to tracy?! It seemed to work at the beginning when they first caught her, why stop?
But Micah... I really wanted to see his character and had suspected him being rebel, though, I have to say, he seemed a little too efficient to actually be rebel.
Interesting enough though. I liked the fact that peter wasn't in this episode so much. I'm getting rather tired of the petrellis, claire included...
