I thought Claire handled that badass moment just fine.

I've been waiting for that fight since Five Years Gone.

Well, maybe not that fight...but we're getting closer.

Good episode.

Above average. Not as good as last week but I like where things are going. Man, I was ticked they killed off Adam. I kinda liked him. The Hiro/shovel stuff was amusing.

Above Average. I really liked how the story progressed here.

Too little time for each of the storylines but for the most part, they're all really good. Though Sylar trying to be good does indeed blow.

Daphne/Parkman was better than expected and Hiro continually getting knocked out was pretty funny. I've said it before but Sandra Bennett has developed into a really good character.

Wow, I like the dad! Ruthless and self confident.

Another week of slowness punctuated by spurts of greatness. Especially the end. So I'll go with Above Average.

I guess Mr. Petrelli didn't actually kill Adam then, he just took his immortality away, and therefore age just caught up with him? Still pretty mean.

So far I'm not liking Mr. Petrelli. Peter without powers though, I guess that explains how Claire kills him in the future?

So Papa Petrelli's plan may have been to breed a power-absorber who doesn't need to touch people, so he could use him as a sponge and then use the family connection to steal all the power from him?

Nice Xanatos Gambit.

In my mind, I keep referring to Sandra Bennett as Joyce...


Depowered Peter is a really excellent idea. Papa Petrelli seems to be a power-thief, which is a neat idea- -seems powers revolving around other powers runs in the family.

Also, I wouldn't be surprised of Adam comes back one of these days. Or maybe I'm just being hopeful..

OK, that made sense. Petrelli Senior's power doesn't kill, but without his power Adam should have been dead of old age for centuries, so...

Jeez. Peter was already a walking arsenal. No telling what his dad had before talking his stuff.

Yeah that just occurred to me a few seconds ago. I'm like "oh, ok now it makes sense!"
