Heroes – S01E18 – Parasite

Tonight’s episode: “Parasite.”

And now finally we meet Linderman! They’ve built up Mr. Linderman since day one so this is some freaking crucial casting for tonight’s show.

Last week’s episode might have been the best one of the series so far, so I am really excited for tonight’s show.


  1. Saw the episode yesterday night (it airs early in Canada)
    I criticized the predictability of the show last week, but trust me, tonights show is AWESOME!
    i wont spoil anything but there are twists a plenty!
    be sure to check it out if you can, its one of the best of the season,

    plus the casting of Linderman made me smile, im a big fan of his…

  2. “There is only one thing to do with a parasite, kill it before it kills again.”

    Awesome! A sure sign that he’s gonna get away.

  3. spider-man 3 preview after the show. good news for us.

  4. Bye bye HRG

  5. I can see from the commercials that Linderman is Donald Sutherland.

  6. Thank god the Petrellis are on the side of good. I may have got a bit misty on that one.

  7. Yes! Even better my droogies!

  8. Holy Moley!

  9. Disliked:

    Peter running away from Issac(good special effects, bad acting)

    Mohinder’s lackluster revenge attempt towards Sylar

    Nikki, nuff said. (How can an actress so hot be the worst part of a TV show?)

    The Shapeshifter, she could be a lame way to throw in shock value then ret-con it.

    Freaking Adam Sutler V for Vendetta as Linderman?!?!


    Suresh taking Sylar down!

    Nathan + Hiro in Vegas = Brave and the Bold #1, sort of.

    Ando’s return.

    Sylar VS. Peter!
    Not Sure:

    Freaking Adam Sutler V for Vendetta as Linderman?!?!


    “I do not make you happy, just safe”

    Maybe you should have thought about that before you shot her… twice”

    I’m going to take some of your spinal fluid, and it’s going to hurt

    I knew you’d set off an alarm eventually

  10. Syler is freakn’ creepy, brrrrrr!!!

  11. Malcom Mcdowell buddy, clockwork orange!!!

    the shapeshifting girl was SMOKIN’!!!!!

  12. If your reveal of the villain is a surprise, don’t put the name, Malcolm McDowell prominently in the credits.

    I don’t know, while last week DELL I really enjoyed myself, this week DELL I just keep seeing everything happen just before DELL it really happened. The ending was DELL interesting, but now we’ve got a while to wait.

  13. Freaking Adam Sutler V for Vendetta as Linderman?!?!

    So are you joking?

  14. I like the ending and i thought about peter geting his head cut. I guess this is the scar that future Hiro was talking about before he started talking about the clair.

  15. Good call chris, i didn’t even think about this but it make total sense, i hope your right. that would be pretty cool

  16. Hmmm… I wonder…. if he had his head chopped off, would putting the chopped off part next too his scalp cause him to automatically recall (that should so be his ‘superhero’ name: Recall) clair’s power and heal himself?

    and for the “But if it wouldn’t work for Clair why would it work for him” people, maybe they just didn’t think of it with clair because no-one knew her power and wouldn’t have thought too try?

  17. It’s a good thing I wasn’t paying attention to the credits because I “ooh!”ed when Malcolm McDowell was revealed.

    Frakkin’ awesome.

    Don’t know about the beard, though.

    Nathan not painting Linderman’s brains all over the kitchen was so frustrating yet completely in character.

    The ending was delightfully gory.

  18. Linderman’s power? (I’m figuring he has one) Too ‘see’ a person’s secrets, hence being able to easily blackmail anyone?

  19. I sure wish I wasn’t paying attention to the credits.

    And did anyone else catch the names of the FBI agents? Quesada and Alonzo? I thought that was cool.

  20. I did catch that on the names. My wife: not as impressed with my discovery as I feel she should’ve been.

    The beard is awesome. That guy’s face is grizzled.

  21. So does Peter have all of Sylar’s powers now?

    Also, was Mohinder nailed to the ceiling or was he simply supported by Sylar’s telekenesis?

  22. The thing about this show is that I don’t know who am I rooting for anymore!!!

  23. Also, was Mohinder nailed to the ceiling or was he simply supported by Sylar’s telekenesis?

    He appeared to be very poorly duct taped.

  24. So are you joking?

    Yeah,sort of; I though that Malcolm McDowell was channeling John Hurt in V a bit. Could just be me.

  25. Heroes Changes In Season 2

    Tim Kring, creator of NBC’s hit series Heroes, told SCI FI Wire that the upcoming second season will constitute a new volume in the multi-volume series, with new characters and an entirely new storyline. “If you remember, the opening of the pilot pronounced the episode as the beginning of Volume One,” Kring said in an interview. “Volume One comes to a conclusion at the end of episode 23, and Volume Two starts with the opening of season two. And Volume Two is a different story.”

    Kring added: “We could have new people and new storylines and new ideas and new threats and new bad guys and new heroes. So I would prepare the audience for that idea, that it’s not just a continuing serialized storyline about only these people. It’s a little more the 24 model than the Lost model.”

  26. Heroes Changes In Season 2

    Sounds like a good way to avoid things getting stale and frustrating in a Lost sort of way. I just hope they don’t completely dump all the characters. I suspect Hiro is too loved by the audience to ditch him completely.

  27. That ending is the best way I’ve ever seen to get rid of a character’s annoying haircut.

    It was brilliant, the way Nikki and Linderman killed those feds, because feds never tell the rest of the FBI where they’re going to be during the day. So they’re in the clear there.

    It’s so good to see Hiro get his groove back, though now I’m eager to find out how it happened. I imagine the sword symbol (that is also the jewelry symbol and the tattoo symbol) is this year’s Dharma logo.

  28. In about 10 years there are gonna be some sorry fuckers sporting that tattoo.

  29. Unless they’re still making it and it’s still good

    Makes me wonder how many people got Stargate: SG1 tattoos WAY back when. Hmmmmmmmm.

  30. Anyone mad about Studio 60 moving?.. Anyone watching the new follow up the Black Donnalies?

  31. Moving?

    It’s over dude. They haven’t said so officially, but it’s over.

    And because of that very reason, I refuse to watch the replacement. Which for someone with the name Flanagan is not an easy thing to do.

  32. Apparently, America refuses to watch it too. It got lower ratings than Studio 60.

  33. Suck it Haggis!

    Stupid Crash movie…

  34. I’ve really liked it, but if feels more like it should be a film than a network series. Maybe a HBO series. Speaking of which, am I the only one that thinks the Walking Dead would be a great HBO or Showtime series?

  35. I am really enjoying The Black Donnellys but I don’t think it’s the right fit for the night and probably for network TV. Like Studio 60, it’s a bit too complex for the night, probably. People just wanna watch Caruso on CSI: Miami and not have to think too hard.

  36. The need their Who blasting out at them before they can see dead bodies… it all makes sense now!

    Perhaps a bit of mindless fun isn’t so bad…
