Out of Time is a way excellent episode of "Heroes"
13 November 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Before I start, let me make a correction: The woman that Peter has been hanging with is named Caitlin, not Kate. Okay, so while Noah was in Odessa, Ukraine, his wife has allowed West to come in the house to have breakfast which Claire just found out when she and West were text messaging each other. Her mom loves him. Still in 2008 New York which has been mostly abandoned because of a virus, Peter and Caitlin are separated-with Caitlin about to be deported back to Ireland-as Peter encounters a man who explains about the various dead bodies in a warehouse and then Mrs. Petrelli who tries to bring her son back some of his lost memories as well as mentions that his brother, Nathan, is dead. Still in the Ukraine, Noah calls Mohinder, who's having second thoughts about bringing The Company down, and tells him not to stray from the original plan. He also tells him about one of the paintings depicting Mohinder shooting a gun. Mohinder doesn't understand since he has no gun in his possession. Later, as he's talking to Bob, they're confronted by Nathan and Matt as they reveal the picture with marks on people indicating their deaths with Bob being the next victim. Seems Matt's dad is in the building to wreak havoc on everyone's minds with Niki confronting her late husband D.L., and Matt confronting his dad in their old apartment with Molly-still in coma but recovering-also stuck there. Matt, using his newfound power of keeping people in their hellish nightmares for good, traps his dad in his prison just as in reality the father is lying comatose on the floor and Molly wakes up having heard Matt say, "I love you." Nathan helps Niki by having her inject the anti-virus needle on herself. However, despite that, she may still die. It is around this time that Bob tells Nathan that his brother Peter is still alive. Back in 1671 Japan, Takezo Kensai had Hiro drugged and captured but Kensai's former girlfriend, who now loves Hiro knowing of his abilities and heroics, convinces him to teleport them to safety. Later that night, Hiro attempts to defeat the enemy troops by setting fire to their tent of weapons but Kensai tries to stop him there. After the fires spread, Hiro tries to save his idol but Kensai chooses to stay as Hiro teleports to safety. Next morning, he reluctantly says goodbye to his love as he quickly goes back to the present and an ecstatic Ando who then has to tell Hiro about the tragic fate of his father. In California, as Claire and West are kissing, Noah has arrived back. This scares West as he leaves abruptly just as Claire explains that the Horned Rimmed Glasses guy that abducted him was her dad. Noah now knows a little about Claire's boyfriend. Back in future New York, as Peter sees Caitlin about to be taken away, he suddenly finds himself back in the present in a strange place with a guy named Adam waiting for him. He looks just like Takezo Kensai...Better than usual episode for this season. My favorite scene is when Matt hugs the still comatose Molly and declares his affection for her which she later reciprocates. His father looks dead but I couldn't really tell for sure. Nice to see Leonard Roberts back as D.L. Should be interesting to see how he dies in next weeks flashback episode. Lots of things to ponder so until next time...
