Godsend is a welcome continuation of Heroes in the new year
30 January 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

It's been two weeks in TV time since the last episode as we open with Peter in a hospital bed. Watching him rest are his brother Nathan and their mom. Simone comes by and brings flowers. Claire is in the kitchen with her father pretending to have little memory of the day her former cheerleader friend Jackie was killed. Back at school, she encounters Zack and tries to refresh his memory of their unique friendship but Zack has no recall. Niki has had a hard time in jail, especially whenever Jessica appears as D.L. and son Micah try to cope without her. Mohinder finds out Eden was once known as Sara Issacs and that her dead body is somewhere in Canada. Matt and his partner try to infiltrate Horn-Rimmed Glasses' workplace in order to find Syler but all they find is paper. And Hiro and Ando are in the Mueseum of Natural History in New York as Hiro discovers a sword of a Japanese legend and attempts to take it in order to get full powers back. Meanwhile, Peter has dreams of destroying New York and gets out of the hospital to find a man from those dreams who claims to be invisible. Nathan and Simone later go to Issac's apartment where they find Issac who tells Simone he's now clean and that he's still in love with her. Hiro and Ando arrive at this time and mention while they have the sword, it's a fake and someone named Linderman has the real one...What I've just mentioned are mainly set-ups for many exciting encounters that will happen in future episodes. Nice scenes between Claire and Zack as they reenact his filming her stunt from the pilot episode. Funny use of Hiro in using his reduced powers during the sword-taking scene. Also humorous was Matt's telling his wife about his mind-reading abilities. Touching scene of Niki and her son before Jessica took over and got herself abducted by the guards. And interesting scenes between HRG and Mohinder about a possible, if reluctant on Mohinder's part, team-up. Lots to think about before the next episode. And I'll be waiting with bated breath...
