As usual, typed while watching, spoilers, maybe ranty, etc. (After watching, oh yes, it's ranty.)


1. Previously on: half lost due to changing tapes from Chuck; once again, we get to see Mom forget I've had that ability before, Samuel pitched a monumental hissy-fit, Sylar was in the closet with Claire.

2. Samuel at the carnival - the carnival is closed because everyone saw what he did, and Lydia is pissed at him. Um, yeah, you ARE the villain. Oh yeah, you love them, as long as they do whatever you tell them to. Samuel, you do not understand love -- obsession, maybe, but not love.

3. Yay, vision dreams... And mom calls. Nifty.

4. Matt comes home and there's Sylar. Wow, talk about unwelcome house guests...

5. Claire's going to see Bennet, Gretchen is there with her but isn't going in with her. "We were in a good place before all this." Yeah. We KNOW. And then the writers did... this. Oh ick, Blondie. So, once again, Bennet will be acting like a moron who can't find his way out of a paper bag, and she'll be the brains of the operation. And they're hunting down the carnival. Yep. There goes the 'Claire hates what Bennet does' bit again. I don't get why she doesn't get it (oh, yeah, the writers. That's right...)

6. Matt & "Gabe" (*snicker*) - Matt doesn't want to help, but he's kind of talked him into it. Maybe. (BTW, don't fix him before I get the full empathy back, huh?)

7. Oh, thanks, Mom. You want to be sure I'm okay? I'm NOT OKAY, and it's your fault. I'm going to go after him, so this could be interesting...

8. Claire & Gretchen - Claire wants to go warn the carnies. And Gretchen's not talking her out of it.

9. Yep, here we go, Blondie has the brains, Bennet's running off half-cocked. *sigh* I HATE WHEN WRITERS DUMB DOWN THE REGULARS TO MAKE THE NEW CHARACTERS LOOK GOOD!!

10. Claire shows up at the carnival and warns Lydia. Jamie Maddrox is listening, & goes to warn Samuel. Of course. And he's spinning his webs yet again. "You have to turn yourself over" -- um, you mean "turn yourself in"? Claire's trying to talk sense into him, but I don't know if he's REALLY going to listen, or if he's going to go in and try to kill them/bury them. Bennet and that cell phone, on missions, again. *snicker* Bennet's going for it? This could be messy... (I still don't get how Bennet & Blondie could be a Primatech team, considering it's long been established "One of us, one of them")

11. Samuel speaks to the carnies, and manages to get them to be sympathetic. Sneaky fucking bastard. Okay, is it Jamie Maddrox firing? 'Cause Bennet a) wouldn't miss and b) wouldn't fire haphazardly into the crowd. Samuel would already be dead, and he'd be the only one. Just don't quite know how Samuel had time to set it up considering he was with Lydia and Claire the whole time as far as I know... But anyway, now Claire will be pissed again because she'll believe Bennet broke his word and blah blah blah...

12. Matt & Sylar - Matt can't do it. Interesting...

13. Yep, called it. Ooh, did Blondie get hit? And oops, there goes Bennet. Lights out. Ack, Lydia got shot? Is Claire going to use her blood to heal her? What's the matter, Blondie, not ambidextrous, too? I was pretty sure you could do EVERYTHING... Oh well, now Lydia has to die, since she knows. And no, it's not too late, damn it, stupid fucking writers. *sigh* SO. They could salvage this by having Claire wait until she's alone with the body, bring her back and tell her to run after Lydia tells her the truth, but they won't do that because they need Claire to think Bennet is an evil lying bastard. And of course, they've managed to kill off the one new character I like the best. Way to go, writers!

14. Okay, Claire's trying to call him... Oh yay, now they're going after Claire. HAH. "We're better than this." Yeah, oh, you're SO much better than that. Right. At least she believes he didn't do it.

15. Matt & Sylar - Oh Janice, you really shouldn't have done that. Jesus, Matt, that was hideously, hideously evil. Matt, what the FUCK?! Was that an echo of Maury, or leftovers from Sylar in your head? Ah, I'm here. Fix me please! And good gods, don't let Janice give you advice about me!

16. Emma goes to the carnival. Now. Yeah, great timing. Well, she'll be totally snowed.

17. Heh -- yep, snagged his ability. He doesn't have to save them, I could take the abilities and save them. Really, I could! MATT YOU BASTARD! DID YOU DO THAT TO ME?! (Or am I just stuck in there where Sylar is?)

18. Blondie is calling... who? UGH. TRACY. Well, there's a perfect storm of obnoxious characters and crappy writing about to happen...

19. Edgar's back, and at least blaming Samuel for 'letting it happen' - if he knew the truth he'd have julienned him already. And now Samuel's going to sell them a boo hoo story. And get them all hyped up to attack. Oh, just great.

20. Next week: I'm still trapped, but Sylar's there. Claire is going to try to rescue Bennet, and Samuel's going to possibly bury them. How nice...

I think Peter's just stuck there because Sylar believes it's real.

Unfortunately, if Matt has gone to the Murray side of the Force, he may just have shoved Peter in there and locked the door.

However, I do like the consistency they've shown with him though. We know he's capable of being dark (just ask Molly) and that he can be very "the end justifies the means" type of guy. And after basically being mind-raped by Sylar, (this is what you get agreeing to stupid plans like Mom's) I'm sure that he's probably missing a few of his morality points.

Exactly. This show could be so much better, but the writers are far too lazy to do the work.

...The show hates me and my muses. Seriously. I mean, SERIOUSLY? WTF, "PUT PRESSURE ON IT!"

It's just so wrong. So so wrong. Why have magic healing blood that can RAISE THE DEAD -- hello Bennet AND Maya -- and have her stand there and do nothing.

And this after Mohinder's lameass exit back to India to USE Molly to find bitchy Mira???

Ugh. Just...ugh. Even Adam's awesome of last week doesn't make up for this stupidity. I'm sorry, but...Hiro gets a miracle heavenly cure for incurable brain cancer & Lydia DIES while Claire is RIGHT THERE????

But didn't Jack Coleman say in his blog that Noah hadn't died right away, and Mohinder had Claire's blood right there for immediate access? On the other hand, Nathan and Lydia died before they could get transfusions. Maybe the blood can help people who are hanging on by a thread, but not who are already dead?

Actually, having read more reaction stuff, it seems her blood can pretty much restore the dead to life, lol.

(And no worries, not feeling yelled at. ;) )

I wonder if she's really dead. I mean, it seems she is, and there isn't much wiggle-room, and I doubt the writers think like that, but I found wiggle-room in Elle's death, for crap's sake.

I don't know if he did or not? If so, that's now how it was presented on the show, 'cause Noah was looking pretty dead and they were in a Company-ish facility when Mohinder hooked him up. I mean, they could have ret-conned the hell out of it, but it still annoys me when writers won't be consistent. Maya was dead--Claire's blood brought her back. They've given a clear indication that the blood can raise the recently dead in the show--if they've changed their mind about that, then they need to show it can't in the show, too--or at least have Claire say "wait, I can save her" and then have the blood fail. The fact that she didn't even try, when she logically shouldn't know the finer points of what she can and can't do is just bad writing that makes canon!Claire look like an idiot, and Lydia and Nathan's deaths both clumsily contrived. As professional writers, getting to live the dream so many others are struggling for--I just expect better of them than that.

Unless Claire wanted her dead for some reason. Dun dun duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuun. Or maybe just to appear dead.

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuun!
