Last night’s episode of Heroes was very interesting. Not only did we meet a few new characters but we also learned just how small the Heroes world is.
Mohinder was sent out on a mission to talk to a new hero and we find that it is a character we already know whose powers have only recently manifested. We found out who the nightmare man is. We know that somebody intended to retrieve Peter from the shipping container. Those points are important but they also open up new questions.
Let’s look at Mohinder first. He was given an assignment to talk to a new hero. Wait a minute? How does the agency know when a new hero gains their powers? If they already have this ability why did they need Molly to find people? Why do they need to tag heroes at all?
What about Matt’s dad? He is the nightmare man and able to kill with that power. I now believe that no one was on the roof with Hiro’s father but that he was instead caught in a nightmare and jumped off the roof. Same thing with Mrs. Petrelli, when Mark broke into the holding cell there was no one else there; she was causing her own wounds! This leads me to believe that the nightmare man can reach across vast distances to implant thoughts, suggestions and nightmares.
What about Peter? Who is this new girl that is looking for him? Why was Peter shipped off to Ireland in the first place? Peter is practically Superman!!! No shipping container will hold him!
I can’t help but feel that the second season of Heroes is a show in search of a plot. While in Season one we met the heroes and saved the world I do not know what the point of season two is, do you?
