Heroes Episode Recap: "1961"

Source: TV GUIDE Apr 14, 2009 08:17 AM ET by Adam Bryant

Through a series of flashbacks, this episode of Heroes reveals just why Angela Petrelli has her entire family digging up skeletons in the desert. In addition to revealing her connection to Coyote Sands, her flashbacks to her teen years in 1961 also establish how and why the Company was formed, just how involved Mohinder's father was in Project Icarus and why Mama Petrelli was always stealing people's socks! Throw in a few familiar faces (well, names, since the actors are all different), lots of shouting, and a a special ability right out of X-Men, and you've got "1961" in a nutshell. On with the recap!

Diggin' Up Bones

Following Angela's orders to dig for answers, Nathan, Peter, Claire and HRG uncover multiple remains, some complete with jewelry and baseball mitts. Peter and Nathan still haven't worked through their issues, but Claire insists that Nathan is carrying his guilt with him. "He charmed you... it's happened to all of us," Peter snarks. Peter's had enough playing gravedigger and pushes Angela for answers about her sister, the reason she gave for coming to the desert to begin with. Angela reveals that her sister, Alice, her parents and everyone else at Coyote Sands were killed there. And she's hoping to keep history from repeating. Cue the black and white...

Alice in Wonderland

Except in this case, Wonderland was the Coyote Sands Relocation Center in 1961, headed up by Dr. Chandra Suresh. Here, parents bring their children to have their abilities studied and tested, all while watching movies and eating delicious popcorn. Oh, and there are dudes with guns. Suresh assures Angela and kid sister Alice that the guns are for their protection, rather than keeping them imprisoned. Angela comforts a sad Alice by saying that being in this place will help her stop her nightmares... and the screaming. Relieved at that notion, Alice turns the rain into sunshine. That's right, her mood controls the weather.

Soon after they settle in, however, Angela has a nightmare involving Dr. Suresh killing everyone at the facility. Angela tells her friends and even Dr. Suresh, who assures her that her dream was just confusing. But Angela maintains that even though Suresh is a good man, he will lose control. (Sounds like another Suresh we know, eh?)

Company Men

Angela quickly becomes friendly with three young gents: A fellow named Charles Deveaux, a fellow named Daniel Linderman, and a fellow named Bob Bishop. When she tells them about her vision of Suresh, Charles is desperate to escape. "This is a huge science experiment and we're the rats," he says, likening Coyote Sands to a concentration camp. So, Angela forms a plan to bust out, but Charles insists that Alice stay behind. "Make sure she doesn't blow this... lie," he says. She does, promising the little girl with cold feet and no socks that she had a dream of good things ahead.

While Angela and fellow Company founders vow to do whatever it takes to keep their abilities secret from the world (they form the Company because that's what Angela dreamed), Alice's visit with Dr. Suresh goes haywire, causing an impromptu storm. When Suresh slaps Alice to calm her down, a chain reaction starts: Alice's dad uses his ability to fight off Suresh, but the guards shoot him dead. Full-on hell breaks loose while Alice runs and hides. (Are we to believe that spat is what killed all those people? Really?)

Good Night, Alice

Back in present day, Angela explains that all these years she thought her sister had died in the melee. But a recent dream proved Alice is still alive, and soon, there's a sandstorm to confirm it. Before she can get to her sister, though, Angela says they need to start the Company again, erasing memories and doing what's necessary to keep their abilities secret. Peter's having none of it, and flies away. Nathan tracks him down, and after some insufferable story about the 1986 Mets, Peter accuses Nathan of being selfish. Shocker!

The storm warning on the TV draws them back to Coyote Sands, however, where Angela has run off into the storm to face Alice alone, leaving Claire alone and HRG to get waylaid by Suresh, who thinks HRG has tracked him there. When HRG explains why the Petrelli clan is there, Mohinder fears that what his father was doing was dreadful. Worse, he feels he has only repeated his father's mistakes by allowing his research to consume him and make him power-hungry.

Finally, Angela comes face-to-face with Alice, who confirms that Angela is not going crazy... and is looking old these days. Angela tries to apologize, explaining that she always carried guilt with her, even to the point of stealing socks for Alice "to remind myself there are simple ways to protect the ones we love." Just as the sisters forgive and forget, Angela admits that she lied to protect Alice, which doesn't sit well with the Queen of the Lightning Bolts. She calls up a storm, attacks Mohinder and Peter and makes her escape, presumably to be found in another 50 years when it's convenient for the plot.

Family Men

Gathered around the same table that gave birth to The Company, Peter says this time around, they will be a family. "We're stronger together than we are apart," he says. Claire, despite realizing that she grew up too fast, giving up on being class president or a doctor someday for chasing bad guys as an agent, agrees to forgiveness and starting fresh with HRG. Mohinder, however, isn't ready to move on, but agrees that the bodies buried at Coyote Sands should stay that way. In the meantime, he's not ready to forgive himself, but he's hoping for redemption.

Nathan, however, is ready to storm Washington, take ownership of his flawed program and talk to the president about shutting it down. There's just one problem: Nathan (or Sylar as Nathan) is playing Senator on TV. To be continued...
