  • an intense, nervewracking episode

    Heroes is back!!!!!! If the last couple of episodes in Season Two were unbelievablly slow, this one makes those almost worth it. It cranks the intensity to a super high level, almost to the point where it's unbelievable. Mohinder is torn between loyalties as he must decide to either help Noah (HRG) or Bob and his psychotic daughter, Elle. Meanwhile, Noah has to deal with his death prophecy as he must find Claire before Bob finds her, even if he must put aside his differences and shady past with West. Matt discovers a new ability that he could easily abuse if he's not careful. And Hiro races against time to save his father's life before it's too late to do anything about it. Sides are betrayed, revelations are revealed, and the line between good and evil is blurred as Noah will do all he can to protect his family and Hiro finds how his father's killer is. There is a wonderful revelation about Elle that proves how evil Bob is even to his own daughter and makes her motives more conflicted than originally thought. The ending is a shocker and leaves plenty of questions left unanswered. What will happen next? It was a wonderfully written episode that was so good, it was almost worth the long worth and it is one of the best, if not THE best of Season Two.
