Tonites episode of NBC’s Heroes entitled 6 Months Earlier answers quite a few questions about the show and the heroes. The title, 6 months earlier, comes from Hiro traveling back in time in order to save Charlie, the waitress, and we are shown how all of the “heroes” begin to learn about their powers.
It opens with Dr. Suresh meeting up with a man named Gabriel Gray. Dr. Suresh tells him he is a genetisist and believes he is a part of the solution. He tells him he wants to run some tests on him to confirm his suspicions about him. During the test, Dr. Suresh tells him he has made a mistake and that he is not the man he is looking for. Gabriel becomes angry and storm out with the name and phone number of one of the other people Dr. Suresh is looking for. Gabriel contacts the man named Brian Davis and informs him that his name is Sylar. Which came from the type of watch he was working on at the time. Brian Davis shows Sylar that he is telekenetic and can move objects with his mind. Sylar attacks Brian Davis from behind cuts his head open with a rock sculpture in order to get to his brain and see how he is peforming the telekenetics. Somehow Sylar is able to figure it out and goes to Dr. Suresh to show him that he can do it. He tells Dr. Suresh that he will help him in his hunt for the other Heroes he is in search of.
We then see the brown hair girl assistant(Im not sure of her name) being pulled over by Matt (the cop). She uses her powers of mind control and tells him he would rather be eating a doughnut and suprisingly he seems to agree goes back to his car and drives off. The Haitian guy is then seen standing there staring at her and takes her to Mr. Bennet (Claires father).
Claire the cheerleader is told she will be getting a spot on the cheerleading team and after getting in an arguement with another cheerleader accidently cuts her hand. Suresh calls and tells Claires father he wants to talk to him about her.
Nikki is at an AA meeting telling of her past when she sees her father, Hal sittin in the audience. They have a conversation in which he appolgizes for not being around and says he wants to meet his son in law and grand son, Micha.
Peter Patrellie is the next hero we see and he is having a part to celebrate becoming a Haspas nurse. Nathan, his brother informs him that he has to prosecute Linderman, who is their fathers biggest client. On the way home from Peter’s party a car forces Nathan and his wife, Heidi to crash. Only Nathan flies out of the car to safety while his wife is left in the car to crash. This is how she ended up in the wheel chair that we saw in earlier episodes. At the hospital, Peter asks Nathan if there was another car involved because he had a dream of the wreck happening. Nathan tells him yes and that it was one of Lindermans guys. To me it looked alot like Mr. Bennet was the man driving the car, but I could be wrong on that. A few days later is suppose to be the day of the trial for the Patrellie’s father but Nathan informs Peter that their father has died of a heart attack and to be thankful that he died without knowing his sons were about to stab him in the back by prosectuing his client.
Next we see Mr. Bennet talking to the brown hair girl with mind control powers. She tries to use her powers on him and make him let her go. He tells her that she has always been able to get what shes wanted, until now, because he is able to say no to her.
Matt the cop, is up again and he is shown preparing to take his detectives test, which we later find out in the show that he fails again, due to his dislexia.
Since Hiro has gone to far back, he decides to stay with Charlie and work at the restaruant in an effort to save her life. He gives her a Japanese phrase book, and proves to her that he can time travel. He convinces her she is in danger and offers her a plane ticket to Japan. She agrees to go, but then later informs Hiro that she has a brain clot and is dying. Charlie then tells Hiro she loves him and as they are about to kiss, Hiro accidently time travles back to the present day.
Next we find out more about Nikki’s past in wich she is visiting the grave of her dead sister, named Jessica. Which just happens to be the name of her alter ego. So this means that her dead sister is the alter ego of Nikki when she becomes violent. Hal then visits Nikki and her son Micah, but Jessica decides to show up and confronts her father about the abuse he put on her and we find out that Hal choked Jessica and ended up killing her. Jessica tells him to leave and stay out of Nikki’s life forever.
In the closing scenes we see Mr. Bennet talking to the brown hair girl and he tells her that what he wants her to do for him is to get his daughter Claire off of Dr. Suresh’s list of people to find.
That covers the major points of interest from the show, but we did find out that in next week’s Heroes Mini finale, that one of the Heroes will die.
Which one do you think it is and why?
