    This show is just getting better and better. So many actual answers, and so many more new questions.

    And oh, yeah... a former Doctor and a former Master in the same scene. Awesome.

    This episode was simply amazing IMO. One of the best yet for this show. I loved seeing how Mr. Bennett got to where he is, and what he did for Claire in the end. I gained a lot of respect for his character in this one.

    Can someone be in love with a show because I think I am.

    WOW, Hiro's dad was there, he is connected. I wonder if he knows about Hiro's power. I loved this scene. Little Hiro was adorable.

    Our questions were answered, awesome. There so much more that I need to rewatch.

    What an amazing episode! It had everything in it: drama, tension, revelation. I really didn't think anything could touch last week's episode but this did. And how! This is why I stay away from spoilers and feel more than amply rewarded on this occasion. All I remember reading was it would tell us more about how Claire came to be with Bennett.

    Wonderful performances by all concerned. Special mention must be made of Jack Coleman (Bennett) who was superb. Kudos to TPTB for the fantastic casting of the show.

    I retract my earlier complaints about Hiro
    Spoiler:
    and his father. I'm glad it was more than a detour in the narrative. And hurrah... more Eccleston!

    This is why I think Heroes is so much BETTER than LOST. It actually does give answers.

    Well said.

    Well as Christopher Eccleston would say as The Doctor "Fantastic"
    Great episode, acting was amazing, got a good deal of answers and some new questions. This show has come a long way from the premiere.

    About Lost, yes this show is soooo much better. Lost is going to be like The X-Files, with no big questions answered.

    I was jsut blown away by this episode.

    The new hero, the way she was checking out Mr. Bennet... I tihnk she can see through things.

    And my one issue I had from this episode... why didn't the Haitian stick around so that HRG can administer the tranquilizer?

    That was one of the finest , if not the finest, pieces of television production I have ever seen. The cinematography, the acting, the story, the characters, the soundtrack...can it get any better?


    I've watched it three times so far and I still get goosebumps during the end sequence when the Haitian is leaning over HRG.

    Great ep .. i watched it sooner then most, couldn't wait for official topic, had to say something, but didn't want to put too many spoilers. Prolly the best ep so far. I really hope Haitian doesn't go to deep on HRG, so he remembers his love for Claire ... after this ep it would shame if they turn him into bad guy.

    Hiro's dad ... that was one that made me O_O (i really didn't expect him there, specially considering WHERE they were)

    Claude was bad guy? I wonder who he saved ....

    Scenes in Bennet house were great ... i was actually shouting at Claire not to try to save her family ... i couldn't believe i did that ....


    What a show ....

    So much happened in this episode.. Mr Bennett having flashbacks with Claude as his partner before the Haitian... Hiro's Dad on "The Roof" with Claude and HRG and Little Hiro playing his gameboy, Claire saving the day and walking out charred but healing all the way, Ted almost going nuclear (sounding pretty demonic too), Matt and HRG working together, a younger Claire helping HRG pick out his glasses and of course the ending... what an ending O_O

    Agreed. I was impressed by the number of answers we got in the episode. of course there are more questions but still this was an amazing episode. Just when I was beginning to think Bennet was a jackass he almost redeems himself. He really wears gray well.

    Spoiler:

    How did Claude even survive?

    3 fatal bullet wounds and falling of a bridge?



    Amazing/Emotive episode!


    It was great to see Claire showcase her super-power and show how much of a hero she is by ...
    Spoiler:

    .. saving the day and neutralizing super Ted!


    This is the same NBC that (we) I was cursing a few weeks ago!

    It's a joke. My way of deflecting attention from my own obvious heroism. You'll get used to it.
