Heroes Ep 4: Great revelations or just more questions?

Holy Heroes! This week's "I Am Become Death" was pretty fantastic. The fascinating confusion reminded me of how much I loved Season 1 for messing with our minds and leaving us confused yet totally obsessed with figuring everything out.


But did this episode of Heroes feel too Lost-like as it brought some actual answers, but brought even more questions as well?


It was awesome to finally learn that Niki is not a split personality of abilities, but instead triplets, discover Sylar's future as well as the coming demise of Peter, plus why Claire's trying to kill Peter, and get a glimpse at the disaster that Suresh's formula becomes and at the return of Adam Monroe!


So did you love these answers or are you just feeling confused with all the time jumps and lack of more understanding?

I don't remember them saying why claire was trying to kill peter, besides they thought peter was a criminal.

episode 1 of new season was good, 2 bad and this weeks? a return to form yay
some great new plot ideas from 'the 4400' and the fly although the show is a little confusing. what with nobody really dieing, always coming back alive in one form or another, the time travel and not being able 2 tell if real or dream

another predictable, clichéd Heroes episode! if it was MORE like Lost, that would be a good thing... but it's never going to come even close.
but still, it's fun to watch

Unlike LOST, we will not have to wait for four season to find out what is actually going on (we can see 4 years into the future even now). I think the show is like an onion, and we get a layer each week, but you can't get to the core because you have to go thru all the layers.
The fact that we are dealing with possible futures actually makes the action on the show even more random, so I think the newest fad for fans is speculation on is what parts of the future will stick and what parts will disappear because of the whole playing with time and events angle.

About the Claire thing I think that Claire is working with the company
But I'm sure of something, the heroes's creators are tring to make us ask question but at the last minute of the lastepisode of the last season of heroes we're going to see like Claire or an other caractor waking up and all the power and the story was only a dream

claire is trying to kill peter because in the future he's considered a terrorist and very dangerous (and partly to blame for the way things turned playing with time). but i think theres gonna be one problem: in the future, peter is more dark and sylar is more of a good guy: does that mean theyre going to switch in the present?? is sylar going to become good and peter evil??

To be honest, I'm starting to worry about the direction of this series by the third season. I'm starting to feel its becoming very tacky, and cheesy since it's starting to apply very cliched story arcs in its storyline. For example, Angela claiming to be Sylar's mother or how Niki/Barbara/Tracy are triplets. To be honest, I really hope Angela isn't Sylar's mother but just used that as a ploy to manipulate him for their cause; it's something expected of the company.
Also, I think it would have been better if Niki/Tracy/Barbara were actually clones not triplets; it's something you would have expected from the show, and I think it would have made it more dramatically intriguing.
My twin and I think that the reason why they wanted to kill Peter was probably because he was the reason why so many people had these powers, and thus is responsible for all of them being treated like animals in the future. After all, they considered him something of a terrorist in the future.
If this keeps up, I think the show is going to lose all respect from the fans since it's starting to look more and more like Days of our Lives except the characters have powers.

i think that the niki, tracy, barbara being triplets is ok as they were given powers, makes it seem more dastardly then just making clones with powers

here's a question: in Season 1, Peter adapted Claire's invincibility/regeneration power. So, how can he die from getting shot? Makes no sense.

They shot a bullet to his brain. That's why he died. If somebody else had come on along quick and managed to remove the bullet on time, his body would be able to heal. Another way of killing Monroe, Claire, Sylar, and Peter would be to chop their heads off. Too bad they ain't like Lobo.

i believe the reason why future peter didnt regenerate when claire shot him is because the hatian was there. thus blocking his ability to regenerate. if you watch carefully after the present peter tries to cut his brothers head off and then teleport, the abscenece of the hatian in the room help future peter start to regenerate and he blinks while laying on the bed. also is anyone noticed, in episode 4 when tracey goes to dr zimerman, and he explains what he did, the camera pans past a photo on the mantlepeice. the photo has traceys sister in it, dr zimmerman, and also...The German, who knox killed in the bank. so there is another villian tied to the company, perhaps a brother or someone the company gave powers to aswell.
claire is trying to kill peter and considers him a terroist as the companies agenda is to give everyone abilities, create a new world order. the virus failed cause peter stopped it, so the formula is take 2. in that future the company, who is controlled by arthur petrelli who uses matt parkmans dads abilities to pull strings and make nathan beleive linderman is alive and he is doing gods work, until he is president. means he has people with powers in the highest posistion all manipulated and beleiveing they are doing the right thing, which is giving people powers. like americans gun laws. if everyone has a gun we are all safe, aka if everyone has a power we are all safe.
peter is the only one that can turn back time and change things, because hiro doesnt like toiling in the past. so they see peter as a threat who will undo all their work. so to remove him is the only way to keep the new world order.heroes is the greatest show ever made, and tim kring doesnt mistakenly show you something, everything he shows you is for a reason, you just have to ask why.peice out.
