Overview:

D.L. takes a road trip with Micah. They encounter explosions. Niki’s now permanently Mirror-Niki/Jessica. Micah can repair broken technology with his mind, and knows about Niki’s alternate personality. Claire’s brother finds out she’s indestructible, and tests her ability with a staple gun (oh, brother). Nathan does an interview and screws up a lot, but Peter covers for him. Matt reappears and brings a radioactive guy to justice (sort of), then finds out that his wife is having an affair. The episode presents huge steps forward for Nathan, Micah and Matt, and some excellent sub-plots for Claire, Hiro and Peter.

Overview:

Niki and D.L. meet. Hostility ensues. Niki decides that D.L. isn’t such a bad guy. Romance ensues. Mirror-Niki tells Niki to take the money and run. A big showdown between Mirror-Niki and molecular-phasing D.L. ensues. Does anyone else feel sorry for Micah? Poor kid. Meanwhile, Claire meets the bio-parents, Eden turns out to be working for Daddy Bennet, and Hiro and Ando hide in a bathroom while card sharks get their limbs ripped apart. The focus on Niki’s arc gives it some momentum, but several characters are ignored completely this week, and the overall pace feels a little slow.

Overview:

Future-Hiro parades the “Save the cheerleader, save the world!” slogan and goes back to the future. Mohinder decides that everyone’s mad, which perhaps is not all that surprising. Peter visits Isaac and helps him to finish a painting. It’s not very good. Nathan and Hiro meet, and much hilarity follows. Meanwhile, Claire superheals, Brody gets a memory wipe, and Matt uses his telepathy to give his wife what a girl wants. Waffles and Nathan flying are two reasons for a “Woo-hoo!!”, but there are lots of others. Despite a couple of questionable turns in the plot, the excellence continues.

Overview:

This week on Heroes: Mohinder loses the faith, Hiro cheats at poker, Nathan betrays his wife, Isaac shoots up, Simone is very confused, Mirror-Niki puts a heel spike to a guy’s head, and Claire drives her rapist jock into a wall. Several of the above might still be considered “heroic” in some way. In other news: Matt wakes up in a lab with Daddy Bennet looking down on him, Peter figures out that he’s a conduit for other people’s abilities, and Future-Hiro shows up to visit Peter with “a message.” Probably the strongest episode so far.

Overview:

The Smallville boys combine forces. Loeb writes a great script and Beeman gets a great performance from the cast. Peter likes to hang out in the playground with little kids watching. Nathan humiliates his brother, but he might be doing it to help him. Claire wants to be normal, but gets into a horrible situation with the quarterback. Dig, Niki, dig … a better story! Simone is in turn annoying and endearing, so I’m reserving judgment. And Hiro steals the show for the third week in a row. Yatta! Also, buy an iPod! And a Nissan Versa!

Overview:

Peter wakes up in hospital, draws a picture, then acts out the stick-figure sketch with Nathan. Daddy Bennet wants Claire to be his little girl forever and ever (ew!). He now knows about Claire’s attempts to kill herself, but doesn’t seem too upset about it. Meanwhile, Niki has alternate-personality issues, Mohinder meets his father’s ‘friend’ (yeah, right), and a cop becomes telepathic. A tightly-scripted episode, developing the characters at the same time as introducing new ones. It’s made spectacular by Hiro’s visit to the future and the final twist to his story. The premiere was good. This is even better.

Overview:

We meet the characters. Each has a super-power of some kind. Some of them dream about jumping off buildings. Others like filming amateur stunts or teleporting to the ladies’ room. At present we’re all yogurt, but we should strive to be cockroaches. Like God. We’re all “special,” but some are more special than others. Lots of ideas about the meaning of life and our sense of isolation come up. It could have been sentimental, pretentious garbage. Instead, it turns out to be a beautifully realized vision of each individual’s struggle to come to terms with who they are. An awesome premiere from start to finish.
