I have been holding my breath about Heroes. Last year was such a big disappointment. I didn’t want to jinx the chemistry that they have started building for this year. Bringing Heroes back to it’s roots (what roots it has after only a couple years on TV)… The whole eclipse thing is great. Good vs. Bad. Heroes vs. Villians. I LOVE IT! Angela (who the show has built us as being a villian, but it really a hero) facing off against Arthur (her long presumed dead husband who is a really bad villian). Making Sylar their son. Turning Sylar into a kind of good person that no one really knows what to think of. Getting rid of Hiro’s memories, turning him into a 10-year old again. Nikki/Jessica/Tracy…is she on the good side or the evil side? Bringing back scenes from the first season, tying it all together.
Now this all being said, I have some problems with the show. The eclipse took their powers away? We are led to believe in the first episode that Sylar had his powers before the eclipse. So did Angela and Arthur Petrelli. And so did the Haitian. We know Sylar and the Haitian have lost their powers. The original eclipse (the one in the first season) did not bring about these two people’s powers, so why is it taking their powers away?
If anyone has any thoughts on this let me know. I hope that the writers can explain this away…because as we know, anything is possible in the Heroes universe.
