Fight or Flight is another excellent episode of "Heroes"
29 October 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

With Molly in a coma, Matt vows to find his father who made her that way. When he gets to the station, Nathan's still there confronting him about his mother. Matt promises no harm to his mother and tells him about his journey. Nathan wants to come along and won't take a "no". When they arrive there, Matt is reluctant to knock so Nathan does. He also tells Matt to treat his father, who he hasn't seen in 25 years, as just another suspect. Matt does his duty and arrests him then, in trying to read his mind, finds out Dad has the same power. In fact, after he leads his son to a secret room, which Nathan later follows in, his powers are a little more advanced in that he can project Matt and Nathan's worst fears in their heads with Matt confronting his ex with a baby she says is theirs and Nathan confronting his bloody self climaxing in them fighting each other with Matt's dad long gone! In New Orleans at work, after talking to the police and lying about not knowing the attacker's face, Monica goes home to find Micah playing the piano. Then, without knowing it, she suddenly copies his skills with a quicker pace! This frightens her but Micah puts her at ease when he reveals his skills with the TV. So she tests her skills by doing the "Double-Dutch" jumping rope she couldn't do before. She succeeds. Ando goes to a scientist to help clear some characters on an ancient parchment left by Hiro from the 17th century Japan. Hiro had remained to help find Tekezo's girl's father. The last part is really difficult to read so now Ando wonders if Hiro is still alive. Feeling he has no other choice, Mohinder takes Molly to the Company's headquarters to have her taken care of there. As he talks to his superior, Niki as Jessica storms in and tries to kill the superior whose name is Bob. Mohinder tazers her and then later tries to get her to escape but Niki really wants to stay in order to get cured. Bob gives Mohinder an assignment which leads him to New Orleans where Monica answers the door. It's during all this time that Noah on the phone, who's with the Hatian in Odessa, Ukraine, (not Texas like I thought last week) warns Mohinder what the Company is capable of. In Cork, Ireland where Peter and Kate share some intimate time, Peter looks into his box and finds some plane tickets to Montreal. He then looks in Kate's canvas and paints a picture of two men at the doorway under some street signs there. Also, a mysterious woman named Elle (Kristen Bell) is looking for Peter. She's revealed to have powers of lightning coming out of her hands which Peter also had the last few episodes. When she confronts Kate's brother Ricky at the bar, Ricky claims he's never seen Peter but Elle had already talked to others (including the one who tried to kill Rick the previous week) who had seen him and locks the door before she does her deed. So when Kate finds out about it, she's in tears as Peter tries to console her and vows vengeance...Wow, another exciting episode of Heroes has come and gone! Loved the editing of the Nathan/Matt fight in which Matt was supposedly fighting a guard from jail and Nathan was supposedly his bloody self. Also loved the Monica/Micah bonding. Looks like Peter is getting out of Ireland with maybe Kate in tow. How is Mohinder going to fare in New Orleans with Monica and Micah? And just what is Noah and Hatian doing in the Ukraine? Kristen Bell was okay in her "Heroes" debut. And was that really her "Daddy" she was talking on the phone? Lots that and more to ponder so until next time...
