Since Heroes had its season finale two weeks ago, NBC has been filling the empty hour with extra Mediums. And I for one couldn't be happier. First, the conclusion of last week's two-parter in which Allison's new boss' son is on a killing spree, and Mr. Lydecker is trying to squash the truth from getting out.
In the last meeting Allison had with Mr. Lydecker, he stressed that he now owned her dreams, visions, and impressions, and that he would sue her within an inch of her life if she so much as mentioned them to her husband. Unfortunately, this threat was enough to scare her into being complicit for a time in his cover up of Justin's misdeeds.
Caitlyn confronts Allison on her way to Devalos' office and reiterates how hard the hand of Lydecker will come down on her should she go to the police. Not only does Lydecker think he is above the law, but Caitlyn seems to think she is above both the law and Lydecker.
Detective Auerbach was hired by Lydecker to clean up after his murderous, serial-killing son, and we see the lengths to which Mr. Lydecker will go to protect his son and his company's reputation. When faced with those decisions, it's not hard to believe that he would rather have his son chemically castrated, (ouch!) than to let him go to jail. Thank God, Allison isn't on that wavelength.
As the little acorn, Justin certainly hasn't fallen far from the big oak tree. He boasts that he likes to "julienne pretty, young girls and take their eyes as souvenirs." His father's true colors come out when he throws his son against the wall, though I thought he should have killed Justin then. But alas, that's a challenge for any Dad - which ends up being a very bad decision for Lydecker, as his next visit to his son's hideaway turns grisly.
