Mohinder Suresh: [voice-over] Is it man's ability to remember that sets us apart? We are the only species concerned with the past. Our memories give us voice, and bear witness to history, so that others might learn - so they might celebrate our triumphs, and be warned of our failures.

Four Months Ago...was a compelling flashback for our "Heroes"
6 December 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

As Peter meets with Adam, who previously we saw as Takezo Kensei, we find out they have a history. Adam gives Peter something that makes him remember what he was doing four months ago: After brother Nathan flew Peter away from New York into the stars, Peter told his brother to let him go. Nathan obliges just as he's caught much of Peter's flames so Peter, after dousing his in the wind, catches Nathan again with his charred body and takes him to a hospital, only to disappear through walls before anybody can reach him. In the Dominican Republic, Maya witnesses his brother Alejandro getting married. She also witnesses his new wife getting it one with her ex-boyfriend soon after and after a few choice words, Maya kills them as blood spills from their eyes. Soon, the entire wedding party is dead except her brother who is puzzled. They escape. Back in Las Vegas, Niki, D.L., and Micah are a happy family again. But Niki still worries about herself and starts taking pills provided by the Company. Then she stops. D.L. gets a job as a fireman and saves Molly on one of his assignments. He's now a hero on television that Micah sees again and again. On his 11th birthday, Nikki puts up a brave face but with the pills gone she gets a new personality: Gina. Gina runs to L.A. where D.L. finds her at a club as she snaps back to Niki. He then gets shot by Gina's partner as Niki looks on. Back in New York, Peter is with The Company with Bob and Elle keeping an eye on him. Elle develops more than a passing interest in him with the way she keeps electrifying him with her hands and her teasing how he'll like it along with those pills he keeps taking. In the adjoining cell is Adam who had been there for about 30 years. He convinces Peter to break out and stop taking the pills. Meanwhile, Nathan's mother convinces his wife Heidi that Nathan is suicidal like his late father. She tells her that he needs some space. Heidi agrees. Back in the Dominican, Alejandro finds Maya is a nun at church and proceeds to have her arrested but she kills the cops then stops as her brother holds her hands. At the funeral, Niki is holding his father's award plaque as the family from New Orleans console him and Niki. After the breakout, Peter and Adam find Nathan and Adam fills Nathan's vial with his blood which cures Nathan as his skin goes back to normal. Peter and Adam leave quickly as Elle and the Haitian find them. Elle causes Peter's shirt to go on fire but Peter takes it off before it could burn him. The Haitian stops him and uses his hands to wipe his mind and then puts him in a crate that ends up in Ireland. It's at this time that we return to where Peter starts remembering as Adam tells him it's time to save the world...Wow! Great chronicles of what happened between the last season finale and the beginning of this season that included many of the main characters and some of the new ones. Too bad about D.L. Kristen Bell sure is creepy and sexy at the same time. So we now know why Heidi left Nathan. And what Elle's connection to Peter is. Can't wait to see the next episode so until next time...
