This was so *fast* - it never stopped moving. Matt is still sweet (and how could his wife cheat on him?) and Mohinder is gorgeous, and it's so cool he actually has a power.
Ted (Radioactive Man)'s power is heartbreaking. Then again, so is Matt's, and maybe Isaac's.
But my heart? Belongs, as much as it could to a fictional character, to Hiro. Because he is a hero. He has this way cool power and all he wants to do is help people with it - he's never going to forgive himself for letting the "poker men" die. And he and Charlie were the most adorable thing EVER. Instant chemistry, you know? And he could have told her he had his power, but he didn't. "I have to power to teach Japanese really quickly." Hee.
And so when she was killed, it *hurt*. I should have expected it - there was this shadowy TK-powered person and it was all sinister - but I didn't. I just had this picture of the three of them traveling (because she so wanted to travel) and being heroes in their own way. And instead, she was killed and it hurt.
And Hiro looking so happy at her birthday party...this is where he learns English. This is where he learns to fight with a sword. This is where Hiro takes the next step on his journey - and it was because he didn't do the right thing in Vegas.
