Was anyone else disappointed by last night’s overly-hyped fall finale of HEROES? I’m not sure the episode really delivered on that ‘stunning climax’ the NBC marketing machine had brainwashed us to believe was coming. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed the episode and found ‘Fallout’ overall quite enjoyable. I just wrongly assumed that I really would be left with a jaw-dropping finale.
I think to ensure I enjoy this show in the future, New Year’s resolution number one may have to be to stop believing anything that NBC promises. HEROES will be far more enjoyable if I lower my expectations just a bit. That said, the episode had some really interesting scenes, and I’d like to elaborate on a few below:
I’m really enjoying Mr. Horn Rimmed Glasses. What exactly is his job? Is it somehow government related? Who is his Boss? He definitely was answering to someone on his cell phone, I wonder who.
Nice to see Isaac doesn’t need to be high all the time to paint. While the dinosaur was indeed surprising, the great thing about HEROES is that that we may never see that scene. Who knows how far in the future Isaac paints.
Claire and Peter had a great scene together, as Claire realizes for the first time that she isn’t alone. Peter truly is a hero, having saved Claire’s life with no thought of his own.
Eden was the big death? really. Damn you NBC Marketing!
The Haitian finally spoke, and told us that he is going against his bosses wishes. I wonder who his boss really is and why Claire’s only friend had to have his memory wiped.
Finally, the Niki/Jessica story-line just isn’t working. Let’s hope that the second half of the season, Ali Larter has something more interesting to do. I really don’t care about her story and find myself anxious to fast forward (or ‘Sookie’) through all of her scenes.
