At any rate, Peter pushes Nathan off and he starts falling through the sky. Nathan yells after him, to no avail. Peter screams and finally explodes in a mini nuclear blast. Down in the plaza, Claire and her father look up at the explosion and realize that Peter and Nathan have, indeed, saved the world. Unfortunately, Nathan's in bad shape and has basically passed out in the clouds. He's dropping through the sky like a stone when suddenly Peter appears and scoops Nathan up and flies back to New York. This whole scene is so totally effin' awesome I can't deal. I suppose it also helps that both Peter and Nathan are more attractive than ever throughout it, what with the intensity of emotion and brotherly love being tossed around like beer nuts at a cheap dive. Mmmmm. Beer nuts.
Cut to Niki and Micah at Roosevelt Hospital in Manhattan. Micah's asleep in her arms as she watches the news. A doctor arrives and informs them that D.L. survived the shooting and is going to be just fine. Niki weeps with gratitude. Then we cut to the Dominican Republic to get backstory on two characters we could care less about. That's right. Even though the Wonderless Twins weren't part of the original storylines last season, we have to suffer through their stupid expository storyline. Do you really want me to go into excessive detail here? Because seriously? Their whole backstory can be summed up thusly: Alejandro marries a bitch whom Maya hates, and Maya catches her cheating on Alejandro and has her black-eyed meltdown for the first time and she kills everyone and Alejandro finds out and hates her and Maya cries and becomes a nun and Alejandro turns her in to the police and Maya cries more tears of blackness and Alejandro stops her and they both realize their powers and then they go on the run. The end.
I really could care less about them. Sorry, actors -- you're lovely. But this story makes me want to poke my eyes out with chopsticks.
So, yeah, it's four months ago in the Dominican Republic, and Maya's acting more like a jealous girlfriend than a sister at her brother's wedding. She chastises him for marrying someone he's only been dating for four months and tells him that he barely knows her. Also, she's totally dancing with her ex-boyfriend at the moment and she's obviously enjoying it. Alejandro's a blind idiot who thinks that it's totally over between them and that his new bride loves him the most and that it's all going to be shiny and happy and awesome. Maya thinks he's a fucking moron.
