Heroes: Nothing to Hide slowly provides some details to main characters
7 November 2006 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Peter dreams of his former patient Charles Deveraux from when he was a nurse and tells him he can fly. He then wakes up and hears knocking. It's his girlfriend and Deveraux's daughter, Simone. She tells him her father died a few hours ago. Meanwhile, Peter's brother Nathan is having brunch with a reporter at his mansion with his mother and his wife who is confined to a wheelchair and has been for about six months. Peter comes in and embellishes a story about how his brother went to Vegas to find a female doctor to treat Peter's "mental illness" to explain reporter's question of Nathan's time with a woman there. That woman, Niki, wakes up from her defeat at the hands of her ex-husband who knocked her out by phasing through her. She calls Nathan for help in finding her son but Nathan declines. She then goes to a friend who she tells about her alter ego. It's about this time that her ex is on the road with their son when he arrives at a scene of a crash where there's some fire involved. Hiro and Ando also arrive. As the ex phases through a car door to save an unconscious passenger and then carries it out, Hiro stops time to save the ex from getting killed in the explosion. Afterwards, all go their separate ways. Matt the cop is assigned plainclothes to help in a case involving comatose bodies. Despite some of his mind not working properly, he does well enough to get another chance on a detective exam. Unfortunately, in reading the mind of the man who tells him about this he also finds out this man's been fooling around on his wife and punches him out! In Texas, Claire's friend has found the tape of Claire's quick recovery from accidents in his bedroom so no need to worry about anybody finding out. However, Claire's little brother finds it and plays it on his computer just as Claire finds out. Little brother runs with Claire and friend after him and locks himself in the family van. Claire explains to sibling why she doesn't want parents to find out as brother finally unlocks door and gives Claire back tape. Finally, as Niki's ex and son Micah arrive at motel at night, Micah, alone, goes to an out-of-order pay phone and, as he touches it, miraculously gets phone to work as he calls his mother. Niki answers as her bad self startling Micah who asks for her real mother. The bad self, who identifies herself as Jessica, mentions some terms of which Niki comes back just when the ex comes over to Micah. As Micah hangs up phone his dad asks who it was. Macah answers that he was just pretending to call and, sure enough, as the ex takes the phone it is once again out of order...Not too much action but still compelling as we see revelations of Nathan's family life for the first time here. Nice intro of Rena Sofer as his wife. Loved her since I first saw her as Bonnie Haines in Ed. Also worth mentioning is the original Shaft, Richard Roundtree, as the bedridden Charles Deveraux. Quite effective in his all-too-brief scene, both here and in the first episode. Almost didn't recognize him without his mustache! Overall, an intriguing episode that should provide more excitement for next week.
