Best episode ever!
26 March 2009 | by (Tehran, Iran) – See all my reviews

"Have fate and you'll get what you deserve." This is proved after you watch the 20th episode of Heroes; A series which had been deteriorating since a long time ago, and I had no hope to see it getting back to where it was in the first season. Although there were some single episodes that thrilled us sparkly, but there weren't a continuous improvement in quality of the scenarios. However, now we obviously see a great advance in recent chapters - began with chapter 15 and picked at 20th so far- where the characters having been sorted neatly and in a scheduled appearance and events are making much more sense than before. Chapter 20, cold snap is a pocketful of dramatic stories, which has been parted from one another carefully. Having revealed the big secret of Nathan, Danko is planning doing his dirty job easier then before. He decides to use Tracy as bait to find the mysterious Rebel. However, before he could do anything, Rebel has freed the prisoners. After a few minutes, Rebel's identity reveals and surprises us all. Micah, whose character had been almost forgotten, shows up and solve an important part of the puzzle. While everyone was thinking of Nathan, or Angela Pethrelli, bringing the Micah character up was a fabulous and creative idea. His ability to control every computerized system brings sense to all the messages sent to the heroes. Although hard to accept a minor character such as Micah as Rebel, it was good move introducing him into the series again.

Matt Parkman's worried for Dafney's terminal wound, takes her to the hospital and tries to ease her dramatic death. Meanwhile, we see yet powerless but determined Hiro and his friend Ando trying to save Matt Parkman whom they learn is the real Parkman's child. Soon they find out that he also got a power, which is the ability to give power to everything he touches. Here is the climax of the season we have all been expecting, when Hiro takes his power back, though not completely but it's still exciting. Mama Pethreli who originally designed the plan for offering the Rebel to Danko ,now running away from his men and being trapped in an elevator. Suddenly out of nowhere, Peter turns up and saves his mother. To conclude, The final battle of Stacy with Danko's men is actually a stunning scene which deeply affect the whole episode. The beautifully design of the cold snap scene, comes with the upsetting death of her at almost no price. The chemistry between Matt and Dafney is very right and believable, but it ends here. I think Tim Kring's team has found the right path again and are choosing their succeeding steps very carefully planned. If they go on in this way, we can expect a very thrilling and rare ending to this season; something that could finally bring back the peace between audience and the series.
