Heroes Episode Recap

While our regular Heroes recapper, Julie, is out traveling the globe (she’s so fancy), our Battlestar Galactica recapper Jo has stepped up to be our hero and provide this week’s recap. Thanks so much Jo!! Remember…comments are currency.

Title: “Chapter 15: Run!”
Original Airdate: February 12, 2007
GMMR Recapper: Jo

Nathan talks to the previously presumed dead PyroMom. He’s concerned and suspicious about his campaign but also wants to see his daughter, so he does what politicians do best- throws money at the problem and hopes for the best.

Mr. Bennett escorts a feeble and glazed over Mrs. Bennett back into the house. She has an appointment with a neurologist (like a real one? Or the Haitian, you tricky HRG) to find out what’s causing her headaches and memory loss. Claire cops a ‘tude with her dad, who’s handling it.

Jessica takes some base and powder to her telling tattoo. Darling, you could just put on a different shirt…anyways, she fakes out both D.L. and Micah with her best Nikki impression, while the real Nikki watches from the TV screen. Jessica pulls out a ticket to LA and her gun for her next assignment from Linderman.

Matt dresses for his first day as a rent-a-cop. Janice is concerned he’s taking his gun, but he’s bringing it for the extra cash and the extra cool factor. Matt stands at the airport with a sign for “Mr. Malsky”. Malsky, the dude that busted Jessica out of jail, is less than enthused. Matt hears Malsky thinking about the exchange of money for diamonds and how they’ll be lucky to get out alive.

Hiro and Ando conspicuously sneak into Mr. Linderman’s hotel in search of the sword. Ando is distracted by a crying showgirl named Hope. She spins a sob story about an abusive boyfriend and leaving behind her purse. In exchange for the purse, she will introduce them to Linderman. Ando decides it’s his turn for destiny and goes after the purse, dragging Hiro with him.

Dressed as a bellboy, Ando wheels a room service cart that’s hiding Hiro into the boyfriend’s room. They search for the purse while the man showers. Hiro wants to give up so Ando locks him out and keeps looking. The man comes out of the shower just as Ando dives under the bed with the missing purse.

Meanwhile, the people on The List have more than just superpowers in common. None of them want to talk to Mohinder. After several hang ups, he reaches Zane Taylor who is eager to meet with him.

Zane, a punk rocker who can melt things with a wave of the hand, rushes to the knock on his door. Sylar pretends to be Mohinder. I can’t decide if I’m creeped out or in love with Sylar. Either way I can’t take my eyes off him. Could you imagine him and Jessica in a fight? Zane shows off his gift and well, that’s just an invitation to have your brain eaten.

Nathan wants to see PyroMom and his daughter, much to his mom’s chagrin. Mr. Bennett busts Claire for skipping school and presents her fake tickets to the aquarium as evidence. He grounds her indefinitely. She calls PyroMom and asks about her real dad. PyroMom gives only half of the story. Claire ignores her PyroMom and shows up at the trailer. She tells Claire about half of the money Nathan promised and how she’s leaving for Mexico. Nathan arrives to apologize and Claire overhears everything from outside. She throws a rock at his car for not wanting to meet her. When she comes home, her mother is scared of her beloved dog and doesn’t recognize Claire.

Matt and Malsky walk into the diamond store for the exhange. Matt overhears the jeweler thinking about the hit on Malsky about to go down. Malsky grabs the diamonds, Matt grabs Malsky and they both run. Muzak plays as the hitman, Jessica, waits patiently in elevator. Hee. Malsky stole Linderman’s money. He tries to bribe Matt with a diamond to help him escape. Matt hears Jessica thinking “two in the bodyguard and Malsky gets one in the gut”. Gun drawn, Jessica walks out into an empty hall.

Hiro overhears Hope talking about how they just got played. He confronts her and she responds with a fist to his face. Hope manipulates Ando into leaving with her. Hiro is released from his broom closet by a gaming commissioner.

Malsky wheezes down the stairs. Matt hides him and goes back after Jessica. Nikki pleads with Jessica and Matt hears it all. He calls the cops before Jessica unloads a few rounds at them. Matt captures her in the stairwell. He cuffs her to the railing and goes in search of Nikki. He hears Malsky hiding the diamonds. Jessica kicks him Bristow-style through a window, landing Matt unconscious and dangling from a sign.

He awakes to sirens below and crawls back in the building. He finds Malsky’s head and feet lying unnaturally beside each other in an “as gruesome as network TV can be” moment. The cops clean up the scene and bash Matt in their thoughts. He chooses to take the diamonds for his trouble.

Mohinder arrives in Virginia and meets Sylar, who’s sporting Zane’s Ramones T-shirt and superpower. Mohinder steps around the puddles as Sylar fixes him tea. He melts a toaster of the non-cylon persuasion with his hand. Mohinder wants a DNA sample from Zane. Sylar obliges and sneaks into the kitchen to Zane’s body and collects a swab for him. Mohinder warns “Zane” that there could be people who want to hurt him but not to feel alone because there are others like him out there. Sylar wants to come along to convince others to talk to Mohinder. And eat their brains.

Jessica’s next hit: Nathan.

Jo works a boring job in a small Texas town and reserves the right to spell it “ya’ll”. One day she’ll be a novelist, but until then you can read her sarcastic thoughts about TV at http://brickstorm.blogspot.com

    I so wanted FlyDad to see Claire! Sylar scares the life out of me, but I thought he was cute (albeit annoying) on ’24’ so now I don’t know what to think of him…

    okay, ya’ll refresh my memory. Didn’t Nathan see Claire when she visited Peter in the hospital? so wouldn’t he recognize her picture on the phone?

    Overall, I didnt think the episode was overly exciting…I was missing Peter and Mr. Invisible…but I can see the Matt and Nikki/Jessica storyline coming together since he can hear the thoughts of both of them.
    Great Recap! Thanks!

    Jo, I was wondering that too. I guess either he has a bad memory, or he did recognize her but didn’t say for whatever reason.

    it was a dream, wasnt it?

    Thanks, Jo! I didn’t read the recap, since I’m trying not to spoil myself, but I’m sure you did a fantastic job as usual. 🙂

    How did Sylar know about Zane anyway? Just by coincidence (again)?
