    I knew I hated daddy...even before we met him.

    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. :D

    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.

    I really liked this episode, the multiple threads did not bother me as much.

    I was kind of pissed they killed Adam too but he was not doing much anyway so fuck em. So the dads power is absorb other people's power while taking it away from them? I guess that's how he killed Adam, nice.

    I wonder if Sylar will get to take down daddy and is that guy also Sylar's dad? I was kind of hoping they where hinting that Angela had been around...

    Looks like things are starting to come together, we are about half way though this volume right? I was starting to think Peter would be the bad guy this time around, but I guess not, too bad.

    I don't see how Adam could come back. He's dried up and blown away. Nothing to reassemble but dust. No DNA left. Man, Papa Petrell is a bastard, but a depowered Peter is the best thing that could have happened to the storyline.

    Mohinder really needs to go. Like yesterday, and so does Claire. Hayden is the most unconvincing badass I've ever seen. I have zero interest in Claire. Go to college, Claire. All three of your parents can stay. You may go. Daphne was sort of cute with Parkman. Hiro continues to annoy. Now, can we actually get some Peter and Nathan time next week maybe?

    Average but with a bit of promise.

    Yeah Claire or Hayden CANNOT do badass. They just keep trying with her but they keep on failing miserably. Its gotta be hard to do Badass when they keep making her cry (or almost cry) whenever she gets into a little trouble. Those two dont mix well. Just give it up. Maybe they should introduce her to her Grandpa...and hopefully he asks her for a hug...
    And De-Powered Peter is awesome. Now maybe they can have other powered people keep coming by his cell every other day and beating the shit out of him. Thats the only way I want to keep seeing blockhead...I mean Peter.
    And Please introduce Mohinder to Mr. Petrelli. Please? And make him ask for a hug..
    But I did get one of my wishes. At least maya wasnt wearing yet another designer/brand new getup. I like what she is wearing right now. It suits her.

    And I just noticed that they dont seem to be doing the super-imposing of the titles into the intros anymore. I kinda miss that...

    The only thing Peter has left is his stupid facial expressions.

    The last five minutes was the best of the season. I wonder how Peter will get his powers back. I'm guessing that he'll have to take the serum. Unfortunately, he won't necessarily have all the different powers he's collected unless he gets near dad.

    I just had a total brain fart.


    Papa Petrelli was strongly hinted not to have any powers...then there's his whole powers-stealing-thing all of a sudden. Did he always have that? Why'd he go into hiding, how did he get hurt, etc etc?

    Then, it occurs to me-- oh, yeah. The Serum. Maybe he isn't a natural mutie, either...and the Peter/Sylar simularities are just coincedences. Or that the serum affects bloodlines similiarly...

    He may still have his original powers, if Dad is Rogue. They may just take some time to come back.

    BTW, loved the bit when Ando said they all look the same to him and Hiro called him a racist.
