jerked us viewers around is when it provides us tedious subplots centered around tangential characters. This episode we got some more backstory for the Honduran Wondertwins. Backstory which didn't explain anything that we hadn't already guessed: Maya kills people with her leaking black eyes, Alejandro heals them. WE. GET. IT.
Speaking of tangential characters, we also found out the specific fates of D.L., Niki and Micah, although I don't recall many plaintive cries from the fanbase asking for them. D.L. had his heroes death replaced with a lamer one, and Niki managed to develop another, trampier personality. Although I'm all in favor of television characters - and indeed females in general - having trampy extra personalities, this all felt like wasted screen time to me.
Is Bob running the same Company as Linderman, or are we dealing with a splinter group this season? Here's why I wonder:
Last episode Bob said that Linderman was Adam Monroe's disciple. Yet Adam claims to have been held prisoner by the Company for 30 years, stretching well back into Linderman's reign. Something isn't adding up here. The math, obviously.
Sylar was rescued and imprisoned by Candace, who was last seen working for the Company. But she reported to Thompson and Linderman. Is that why Sylar was being held in Mexico, and not Bob's woefully insecure holding area?
