After being lured into thinking last week's episode was good before writing my recaplet and then realizing it really wasn't, I can safely say that this is, in fact, the best episode of the season so far. And while you might not think it deserves a B if you compare it to B episodes from past seasons, I have to grade this season on a curve. So, a B this season is like a Season 1 C or something. It's getting better but nowhere near where we'd like it yet. Anyway, previously: Peter liked being a paramedic because he saved so many people. He got a healing ability from Jeremy. Emma's mom, Dr. Ratched, wants her to take her life back. Parkman explained to Janice what he did to Sylar in the season finale, and how he's not being haunted by Sylon. Samuel took in the real Sylar, who doesn't know himself. They baptized him. Claire nearly got her new BFF/girlfriend killed by their sorority sister, Becky, who's also Samuel's niece.
We pick up exactly where we left off with the sorority girls two episodes ago (am I the only one who is annoyed that every episode has ended with "To be continued..." but we don't get the continuations until two episodes later? I didn't think so. When did they start doing that, anyway?): Ditzy and Snotty wonder WTF ("why the face?") just happened with Claire healing and Becky being invisible, etc. Claire plays dumb, and says she just saw Ditzy and Snotty get attacked by wild dogs. She quickly fake-deduces that the water bottles they gave them must have been drugged. Claire and Gretchen get the other two to agree to keep it a secret so the sisters won't know they got to them. Ditzy and Snotty leave, and Claire's like, "See? Problem solved." Gretchen smartly says she thought the problem was a homicidal invisible girl. Oh, that? Claire asks if she's okay, and Gretchen says she's actually not since Becky just tried to kill her.
Peter's in the back of an ambulance with a guy who was on a subway crash (apparently a collision when something jumped the tracks if the radio chatter in the background is to be believed). Peter heals the guy, who can't wiggle his toes but then can. Oh, and Peter's wearing a blue glove when he heals him, so he can heal through rubber or latex or whatever. And I'm not seeing it as an homage to Firefly, as much as I'd like to. When they get to the hospital, Peter's partner wonders if he's okay since he looks exhausted. He also points out this is the fourth patient who isn't as bad as they thought, so luck must be on their side. Emma watches them walk past and then we get her silent perspective of the post-subway-crash chaos. She looks at the news and sees what's going on.
