A brand new Hero appears in the form of Hana "Wireless" Gitelman. She's like a Blackberry, only with a leather jacket and boobs. Isaac spills his guts to Bennet about how Peter's alive and in New York. Bennet gives him a gun so that he can save the world from dangerous invisible guys with emo bangs. Mohinder and Sylar are on their Cross-Country Ride Straight to Hell, and their first stop is at Dale's garage in Montana. She has superhearing, and the first thing she superhears is Sylar's heart beating abnormally quickly because he's so close to the braaaaaains that he's reaaaaaally excited. Claude continues his Education of Peter with a little stick-play on the roof (dirty!), and they discover that Peter absorbed Sylar's telekinesis. Then Claude hits him in the face with his staff. And, no, that is not a euphemism. Mrs. Bennet collapses in the kitchen, and Claire calls her father while Mr. Muggles laps up spilled milk from around his food-giver's body. Mr. Muggles: "What? Two-second rule, dude. Plus, I was thirsty. Shut up."
Elsewhere in storylines I'm tired of fucking seeing, Hiro teams up with Tom Cullen to go after Ando, and Matt and his wife fight about the diamonds he stole. Yes, they're both about that exciting. Hiro? Still doesn't have the sword. Matt? Still doesn't have any balls. But, the show picks up a bit in the most awesome moment of the episode: Peter saves Claude after HRG and the Haitian Sensation attack them on the Superroof. How does he do this? First, he freezes the taser prods in mid-air, then dumps Claude over the side of the building, then he FLIES AFTER HIM and FLIES OFF THROUGH THE SKY. Kick. Ass.
After we learn that Claude has been on the run from HRG for years, the Invisible Duo figure out that Isaac was the one who gave them up for bait. Peter is understandably peeved. Simone goes to see Nathan and tries to convince him to go public with their abilities. You can imagine how well this goes over with Nathan. Matt meets Radioactive Ted and Wireless in a cemetery and they convince him to join forces with them in order to locate and take down Bennet and OWI. Claire's mother has a brain hemorrhage thanks to the Haitian Sensation, and little Clairebear has had just about enough of her father's lies. But the minute she declares that she wants to protect the family from Bennet, Matt and Ted show up to get answers to their questions. And, finally Angry Peter confronts Isaac and gunplay ensues, only the bullets don't wind up in Peter, they wind up in Simone, who shows up at the last minute to give Isaac's key back. So much for a romantic reunion, huh, Isaac?
Previously on Heroes: Claude smacked Peter around and lo, the world it did rejoice because that shit was AWESOME. Oh, wait. That wasn't the last episode. In fact there was a notable absence of both Claude and Peter last time and, lo, the world it did cry because we had to watch Hiro and Ando do stupid shit in Vegas while Matt and Jessica shot at each other and Claire didn't get to spend any quality time with her Flydaddy. I think if Claude HAD been in the last episode, there would have been a few other Heroes I'd have liked him to smack the hell around. Truly.
This episode is brought to you by the letter KICK ASS.
Somewhere in the Nevada Desert. RadioacTed is hanging out in the Unabomber's old shack, boiling water with his index finger in order to enjoy a nice spot of tea, when an IM window spontaneously opens up on his computer. It's someone named Wireless, and they'd like to get to know him. This wouldn't be odd except that the computer is not currently connected to the Interwebs. A point which Ted brings up to Wireless. Wireless just says that she knows what "they" did to him and then sends him a drawing of a gun with a needle at the end that matches the hash marks on Ted's shoulder. He says they should meet. She tells him to turn around, and there she is: Hana Gitelman, a.k.a. "Wireless." She tells Ted that she can download wi-fi and radio waves, just like a computer. Ted doesn't believe her until she responds to his questions by answering them through the IM window without touching the computer. He asks her why she came to him, and she tells him that "they" got to her too. She shows him her hash marks and says that she can find the bad guys and Ted can nuke them.
Cut to Claire, who's standing in her kitchen, upset that her mom has seemingly lost her mind. She runs upstairs to find her father, but runs into her brother instead. She tells him that something's seriously wrong with their mom and drags him downstairs to the kitchen. Problem is, once they get there, Mama B is back and so is her mind. There's no evidence that just minutes before, Mama B recognized neither Claire nor Mr. Muggles. Mr. Muggles: "Yeah -- what the hell was THAT all about? If she doesn't recognize me, do I still get food? Because that's really all I care about here." Mama B just tells Claire and Lyle to set the table and get ready for dinner. Lyle quips that if their father were there, he'd totally drug test Claire.
