Above Average. Not nearly as good as the episode this was inspired by--season one's "Company Man". It is disappointing to see some effort being put into the show at such a late stage. I can't believe how so many episodes and this entire season has just been wasted when actual character work and interesting plot and story history could have been developed. This is tied with "Cold Snap" as my two favorite episodes this season. They aren't masterpieces or excellent shows and for any other series they would just be solid hours but at least they were somewhat interesting which compared to most offerings this season I guess is something. But it would have been so much better had we had a season of build up and consistent storytelling instead of just dropping this into our lap and resetting everything. It is a tad jarring and disjointed. Angela is my favorite character so I had feeling this would be decent and it was. I like how it gave some nice insight that touched back on dangling threads from season one--which seems like a lifetime ago. We finally learned how some of the Founders met and what precipitated their coming together and forming the Company. We finally learned what Charles' ability was--like Eden he can command people to do what he says. I also liked the theme of "it has happened before and it will happen again" to borrow from BSG. A neat bit of backstory that there had been a government crackdown on those with abilities and Nathan's project wasn't the first time and there being a "Building 26" as well at Coyote Sands. They did a good job casting the younger Angela. I thought she looked very much like her and the actress did a good job with emulating some of her gestures such as brushing Alice's hair with her hand which we have seen older Angela do. Reflecting a bit, I'm not sure bringing in an older living Alice was a good idea. It sort of felt perfunctory and a tad silly. I think it would have been more powerful had she died along with the others in 61. It seemed tacked on along with all the weather shenanigans. I guess the Petrellis are going to forgive Nathan for setting this all in motion. I'm not particularly satisfied with it. I would have at least liked Nathan to have attempted to justify or explain why he revealed the existence of those with abilities. And since a large part of this volume was driven by that decision it really is a big failing that continues to irk. And I see the writers trying to do some character scenes but Nathan/Peter's fell flat for me although it could be foreshadowing. The ominous closing for the episode was the most chilling this show has one in quite some time. Kudos. Looks like the writers are setting up a take on "Five Years Gone" scenario in some form. Did Charles track down Chandra years later and erase his memory? It would seem so because he refers to Sylar in season one as Patient Zero. Next week's episode looks exciting. Maybe they'll be enough momentum from these last few episodes to carry over into season four.
