Hiro and Ando look at one of Usutu's paintings and see what is suppose to be the Pinehearst logo but it is slightly different. The painting shows the heroes symbol and its mirror image which together resemble a DNA strand with two nucleotides on top and one on bottom. The Pinehearst logo, however, looks like a DNA strand with two nucleotides on top and on bottom. See more »


Daphne Millbrook: I have to go back, I don't have a choice.
Matt Parkman: But you don't trust these people.
Daphne Millbrook: If you can read my thoughts, then you know that I don't know if I can trust you either.
Matt Parkman: Forget your thoughts! What is your heart telling you to do?
Daphne Millbrook: Same as it always does: keep moving too fast to get caught.

Losing my patience...
26 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

I am a superhero comics reader (or used to be), and I have never been impressed with this show. What you never do in the comics is to have several characters who can absorb everybody else's powers, because it's too easy and too unrealistic. Yet this show is more about power-swapping than about anything else. Suddenly, in this season, Suresh is acting totally out of character, Sylar is becoming a good guy for no reason, Peter's powers are impossible to keep track of, time-hopping is getting out of hand and making the story almost impossible to follow, and now we have Arthur Petrelli having powers that can absorb Peter's but not vice versa. At the same time, stupid things are happening. WHY did Meredith go to see Doyle without a plan when she KNEW what powers he had? Doesn't make sense. The story is losing both coherence, logic and entertainment value, and will soon be about as ridiculously nonsensical as Lost. A superhero comic wouldn't be caught dead having this kind of story, and if it did, no comics fan would buy it.
