Wow. Am I the only one who is starting to view Heroes as a leaky ship with the writers being the ones punching the holes in the boat? I'm starting to get a bit fed up. In fact, If it weren't for Peter, Hiro and Matt I almost think I'd be done with the show- that's how sad I am right now with the storyline development. I know, I know, here I am trashing the very forum I host at Morty's but I have to be honest. I mean, did ANYONE understand Nathan's explanation as to why he was heading back to daddy's place instead of staying with his bro? And what are all these little side trips for anyway? I loved Hiro's "bad man" comment before blinking Gabriel and Elle away to a beach somewhere and I do see a glimmer of hope with the upcoming Hiro and Claire trip to the past scene but other than that, I'm getting very, very worried. Thank goodness LOST is just around the corner and Fringe is getting better and better...

Any thoughts?

I gotta agree Kayo. :sad2:

Nathan's whole storyline(s) this season has been so convoluted it's pathetic. I don't think they know what to do with the character, but don't want to cut Adrian Pasdar loose!

I'm truly glad to see Matt fixating on a female OTHER than Molly! But the Daphne character is on a limited arch supposedly, so I'm not sure what's happening there.

And the Hiro childish comment with Sylar and Elle was hysterical! It was a relief to see Sylar come back as the ultra bad boy this week! Hopefully, he REALLY killed Papa Petrelli. I was getting a little tired of Dad!

I'm just hanging in there and hoping that Chapter 4 is better after the holiday break! I'm loosing all sense of where the show is going :lookaround:

Heroes Episode Recap: "The Eclipse, Part 2"

Dec 1, 2008 10:42 PM ET by Adam Bryant

The loss of abilities may have scared the heroes and villains in the previous episode, but in the conclusion of "The Eclipse," it was the lessons each character learned from his or her inabilities that seemed to matter most. Nathan decides that some power was necessary in a world of evil, Daphne learned to forgive herself and make her past wrongs right, Hiro remembers that heroes exist to give hope to the hopeless, Mohinder learns that the evil brewing inside of him may not be a side effect of his injection and Sylar decides that no one can really ever change himself. Throw in a few deaths (some permanent, others not so much) and the regaining of powers (that was quick, huh?) and you have one wild episode. Let's dig in!

Nathan, Peter and the Haitian

The episode opens with Peter and the Haitian running through the jungle after Nathan's capture by the Haitian's brother Baron Samedi. Aware that he is now powerless thanks to the eclipse, the Haitian is fearful. However, Peter, who confesses he only tagged along to see if he could be a hero without his abilities, tells the Haitian that Baron is also powerless. "Show him he can bleed," Peter says. Meanwhile, Nathan, chained in Baron's hideout, tries to get under Baron's skin by calling him out on pretending to be a god, vowing to stop his reign on evil, even though Baron suggests Nathan is "just a man."

While Baron prepares to rape a young girl, the Haitian and Peter surprise him by being able to injure him. Baron warns the Haitian the only way to stop him is to kill him, but the Haitian only knocks him unconscious before freeing Nathan. Peter sends Nathan and the Haitian ahead, volunteering to stay behind to help their getaway. But of course, the eclipse ends, making Baron impenetrable, and Peter quickly surrenders. But Nathan and the Haitian come back for Peter, ultimately getting away after the Haitian melts Baron's mind. Nathan and Peter share a little heart to heart to repair the harsh words of the last episode, but Nathan decides he is going to join up with Arthur's venture anyway. He admits Arthur's plan isn't perfect, but he feels it's necessary to take down other evil rulers like Baron to prevent genocides around the world. (I am all for a noble cause, and one that doesn't involve the Earth blowing up, but really?)

Claire

Fearing Claire's worsening condition, Sandra takes Claire to the hospital, where the doctors suggest an infection is afflicting Claire's entire body, as though she has never been sick before. She looks to Sandra for answers (who looks to Noah), but ultimately keeps mum. Claire, fearing she is near death, makes apologies to Sandra for screwing everything up by wanting to be something more than an ordinary teenager, before finally flat-lining. But not so fast: Before Claire can be toe-tagged at the morgue, the eclipse ends and she wakes up. Sandra rushes her home to avoid answering more questions from the doctors and police. Through all of this, Noah was absent, but with seemingly good reason. More on that later.

Mohinder, Arthur and Flint

Mohinder, despite his longing to leave Pinehearst and find Maya (groan), must stay and continue his research as "vulnerable" (paranoid) Arthur fears what could happen if he remains powerless. Mohinder plays along, but when given the chance, attacks Flint, beating the bejesus out of him before escaping with Flint's security card. Mohinder makes it to Maya's house, but just as he calls to her and knocks, he notices the scales have returned, again marking him as the monster Maya has already walked out on once before. Rather than let her down by showing himself to her, he hides and makes his escape, but she finds the slip of paper with her address, realizing Mohinder had been there. Downtrodden, Mohinder returns to Pinehearst to resume searching for a cure, but as Arthur notes based on Flint's injuries, Mohinder has some darkness within him, with or without scales and abilities.

Hiro, Ando, Parkman and Daphne ("Best. Day. Ever.")

Hiro and Ando try to prove to the comic book store owners that they really are the guys from 9th Wonders, all in hope of somehow regaining Hiro's memory. Ultimately, Hiro buys back issues of the comic to see all that he has forgotten. But once Hiro sees all the things he's done, he decides he doesn't want his powers back or to grow up and hides in the bathroom. Meanwhile, Parkman learns that Daphne had cerebral palsy before the first eclipse turned her into a speedster. She is convinced that she is being punished for betraying Arthur, and refuses to believe Parkman when he says he knows she is a good person. He visits the comic book store to check in on Hiro, only to learn that powers will be restored when the eclipse ends, and he sees in 9th Wonders that Daphne runs away again. Back at her home, Parkman learns that she is already gone, but hears Daphne's father's thoughts and realizes he blames himself for Daphne leaving. Matt also hears the thoughts of Daphne, who he finds talking to Ray the scarecrow. He learns that she built Ray to protect her dad's crops (and livelihood) and uses that again as an example that she is a good guy, who must forgive herself and finish what she came to do: set something right. She hugs her father, perhaps relieving his fears as well as her own.

Back at the comics store, Seth Green's character talks Hiro out of the bathroom by reminding him that his journey is not only to do good and save the world, but to also inspire others. Reinvigorated, Hiro emerges ready for his task. Based on an old issue of 9th Wonders, they learn that Hiro and Claire first met when Kaito gave Noah Claire as a baby, but they also see an image of present day Hiro and Claire watching the scene unwind. They decide that if Hiro takes Claire to that moment his memory will be restored. Sound cool? Sure. Make sense? Not really. But Hiro disappears before anyone learns his plans. The comic store owner tells us that they have the final Isaac Mendez-painted 9th Wonders, but tells them of a final story that he gave away in a sketch book. Looks like Ando, Parkman and Daphne need to find that sketchbook to find Hiro.

Noah, Sylar and Elle

Even though HRG had Sylar and Elle in his scope last week as they were making out, he somehow managed to let them get down to bumping uglies before firing a shot. But before the gunning began, Elle wonders what they would do if they were to remain powerless. Sylar suggests that they would reinvent themselves, but before things can get more steamy, HRG fires, and ultimately bursts into the house, shooting Elle in the leg. He continues his manhunt (instead of visiting Claire in the hospital), ultimately following Sylar and Elle to a supermarket where they bandage Elle's wound. Sylar sets a trap by sending Elle down a storage room elevator and attacking Noah from behind. The two battle it out, with Sylar trying to make Noah feel badly about this side his "Claire bear" has never seen. Noah, however, gets the upper hand, and, wielding a box cutter, slices Sylar's throat, leaving him for dead.

But, you guessed it, with the ending of the eclipse comes the overturning of Sylar's death. He and Elle burst in to the Bennett household just as Noah realizes he may not have finished the job. Sylar pins Noah to the wall, saying they are taking Claire, the reason they came in the first place, but Noah plays mind games, suggesting Sylar is not the son of Arthur and Angela Petrelli. While Sylar takes a moment to consider all this, Hiro pops up and one-by-one teleports Elle, Sylar and Claire out of the house. Claire sees Noah talking to Kaito and finally learns why he has always treated her more like an assignment: "Don't get too close," Kaito says.

Finally, Sylar and Elle find themselves teleported to the same beach, and (naturally) start getting hot and heavy again. (What else would they do, really?) Sylar, however, changes gears and tells Elle that reinventing themselves never would have worked, especially now that he has his powers back. He says they are both damaged goods and that people never really change. Perhaps because he's just feeding his hunger, or maybe because Noah suggested that Elle helped turn him into this monster, he splits open Elle's head in trademark Sylar style. He's two-for-two with the Bishop clan!
