After roughly a month long hiatus, Heroes has finally returned. Would it be met with the same fervor that it left fans with? Would it successfully continue the runaway train pace that it began to accumulate before its hiatus? Does my opinion really count that much? Who knows, but that’s what this blog’s for, so here goes.
Sylar and Peter face off, and Sylar kills Peter. Or does he? This episode served more as a discovery episode for all involved. Nathan learned that Linderman has a power (he can heal others), while Claire got to know her family a little more (most notably, spending time with her grandmother that wants to take her to
Parkman and Radioactive Man get out of Primatech Paper (with some “thoughtful” assistance from Claire’s dad. They plan on taking the organization down, so that future heroes can live in peace, without the tracking and Superhero Registration Act (sorry…wrong storyline). Looks like they’re on the next bus to…you guessed it,
Meanwhile, Linderman wants Micah (for who knows what), and Hiro rips a hole in the space time continuum by bumping into himself 5 years into the future, which is apparently when the next episode takes place.
And finally, Sylar gets a nifty new power, as he kills Isaac, and takes his future painting power. He uses it to paint a perverse version of another image painted, where Nathan stands in the Oval Office as President (Sylar’s version has something like and ogre).
Overall, this episode was fantastic. It wasn’t as powerful as the 2 or 3 episodes leading up to the hiatus, however, it did a great job of picking up where it left off. It’s interesting to see Parkman and Radioactive Man partnered with Mr. Bennett, and the Jessi/Nikki storyline took an interesting twist this week as well, as it seems she has some motivation to hate Mr. Linderman even more. Hiro got minimum screen time, which is fine, as it gave time to the other characters to flesh out the overall story a bit more.
There are only 4 chapters left, which kind of sucks, but such is the life of the serialized drama. It seems that Linderman (and now Nathan) want Peter to blow up
Rating: 9.2 out of 10.

To help alleviate this problem, Vertigo (which is part of DC I know, but its the thought that counts) have made available first issues of many of their excellent works. And the best part is...THEY'RE FREE!!!!That's right. Free and in tasty electronic form for your simple online perusal. Now obviously, this is just a glimpse, but with offerings such as Deadman, American Virgin and DMZ, you can't really go wrong. And of course, if you like what you're reading in the first issue, then check out the corresponding series. You may find yourself pleasantly surprised at what you're reading. Vertigo Classics
