Maybe since Nathan's ability was artificial, a side effect of the formula also made him immune to the effects of Claire's (or Adam's, or any other healer's) blood.

One of the many problems with Nathan's death is the show forgot its deus ex machine...Claire's blood could have healed him.
That was the saving grace - hopefully the writers have now realized what a bs cheap out that is, and will forget they ever thought of it.

Well in the great Heroes tradition of editing out totally vital information, they had a line in the script that explained the healing blood only works once for a person.
Thank GOD they edited that out. Inventing a bs cheap out is bad enough, but inventing arbitrary bs rules for the cheap out would make things worse. A line that that would be a throw-a-shoe-at-the-TV moment. Like this show has so few of those, huh?

Or are they saying that since he was restored by Adam's blood that Claire's blood wouldn't affect him?
Yeesh. A line that that would be a throw-a-couch-at-the-TV moment.
I'm not opposed to eliminating that deus ex machina. It's just that it was already introduced and at least how to be touched on why they couldn't do it again. I could buy the "diminishing returns" argument.

Nathan was already healed once with Adam's blood after being badly burned in season two.

I always thought the magic blood was a horrible idea that should have never been introduced. Another one of season two's mistakes.

I can't believe I forgot about that. Nevermind, then.

-I have no idea how to just quote a tiny portion of Temis' huge post.
Hit the quote button and edit it like any other text in the posting window.

Or cut-and paste just the line you want into a new post window and use the quote button above the window.

Easy-peasy.
