We Don’t Need Another Doppelganger: Random Thoughts on the Heroes Finale

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — pprscribe @ 2:43 pm

Where was “Rebel” last night? Is he really on his own now? How old is he? No mother, no father—but no more grandma and cousin, either?

What has happened to the Haitian?

"yet a delicate balance." circulating,

"yet a delicate balance." circulating,

Well, we knew Niki/Tracy/Jessica/Barbara/? would be back next chapter. Guess she was still mad at Idris Elba considering the first person we see her kill is a Black guy.

Ando has dubbed himself the Crimson Arc— which “totally seems like a euphemism for menstrual cycles.” Yes, yes. Actually I can see that. And given how Hiro bleeds now every time he tries to use his powers….

Why didn’t Peter take Nathan’s place? They could have, maybe, chopped Sylar’s body up into little pieces then scattered them around the globe.

Why does everyone love Claire so much? Even Sylar had to get his grown-man-creepy on with her?

What has happened to the Haitian?

Sylar’s line as he pulls the blade out of the back of his head—“That hurt“—is one of the better lines of the entire series. Danko’s reaction was good, but they should have tried a few more takes to get more of an “Ohoh-I’m-screwed-now” aspect to it.

How long next chapter before “Nathan” figures out that his new-found abilities with fine timepieces means something’s up?

In every morph scene in every movie/TV show I am always distracted by why/how clothes morph as well as bodies and voices and hair. If it is a matter of DNA (as it seems to be with Heroes) why wouldn’t a Sylar-into-Claire, for example, still be wearing trousers and boxer shorts?

What has happened to the Haitian?

Sylar better not kill Mr. Muggles.

“We are all connected. Joined together by an invisible thread—infinite in its potential and fragile in its design…” Okay.

How long until the “True Blood” season premier?



  1. The Nikki Tracy thing was not a suprise. They are triplets. Forget where is the Haitian? Where is Mika’s cousin from New Orleans?

  2. Citizen Ojo, I was most upset that the cousin did not reappear. This blond woman has to come back in multiple guises again and again but we cannot keep a single Black or Brown woman/girl? What’s up with that?
