Building 26

For all you Heroes fan out there who missed Monday’s programme here is a quick recap of this sci-fi thriller.

Although she is meant to be behaving herself and attending community college, Clare can’t help getting involved.   When the mysterious Rebel texts her and asks her to warn Alex about being abducted by the US governments she feels compelled to get involved.  No sooner is she at the comic book store warning Alex when “HRG” shows up to take him away.  Some quick thinking by Clare gets Alex and herself out of a tight spot.  She also tells her mum what her dad is up to which causes them to spilt-up for a while.  While drowning his sorrows in a local bar, Noah is drugged and captured by Peter, Matt and Mohinder.

Sylar and Luke are still on the road trying to find Sylar’s father.  So far, Sylar hasn’t given in to any temptation to kill Luke and steal his abilities.  The US authorities spot Sylar on a motorway CCTV camera and track him down at a roadside coffee shop.  They send in the Special Forces to try and bring him in.  Of course, once again, they are no match for Sylar who gets away, although Luke is left behind.  Have the authorities captured their next killer with special abilities?  Well no, not quite.  Sylar shows a most uncharacteristic change of heart and rescues Luke (as well as taking government communication equipment so that he can monitor their activities).  Is our villain changing….?

The show also included the antics of Hiro and Ando sent to India to stop a wedding.  Between them they manage it.  Again the mysterious Rebel makes contact and tells them to protect Matt (who now has Isaac’s ability to draw the future). 

The big question in my mind is who is Rebel?  Angela Petrelli is the obvious choice, but perhaps we are about to be introduced to someone new on Heroes.  What do all you Heroes fans out there think?
