Yeah, the pop-ups were obscene, but NBC is going to milk their big hit to help feed the new bastard-children shows. Can't wait for that cross-over with Bionic Woman
If there was any moral/theme to tonight's episode, I would have to say that if you have powers, your personal life is destined to go straight into the crapper. Nathan, Parkman, and worst of all, the Bennett household having to integrate with the Cali lifestyle. No wonder Claire was willing to take that leap. Brrrr.
It seemed to me that was how Nathan ended up looking after the trip to infinity and beyond, and may very well be his current appearance which is somehow being concealed, as if he had gotten something like Candace's powers, or perhaps more likely, the undefined powers of either one of his parents.
I thought the ep was okay, and served its primary initial purpose, which was to throw us a few mysteries, while laying the foundation for the issues to come.
Chance favors the prepared mind
