Find That Package Boy!

**Heroes Spoilers Below**

Saw the new episode of Heroes and gotta say, I enjoyed it. Lots of new interestin' developments. If any of you are big fans and have not yet read Watchmen, go read it. Seriously. The references to it are impressive.

Specifically? The notion that the destruction of half of New York could be a good thing.

Three things real quick-- Linderman's acquired the techno-wizkid Micah. The only reason why that I can think of would be to fix the elections? The counting will be done on computers, and the boy's proven he can do pretty much anything he puts his mind to when it comes to technology.

Thing #2-- Isaac (rest in peace) was confident that he had told the good guys how to defeat Sylar once and for all. We haven't seen any paintings at all to suggest anything of the kind. What we did see was Isaac handing his sketchbook to a package boy who's confessed to being a big fan of his work. We don't know what else is in that sketchbook. Deliver us, Package Boy!

Thing #3-- A time traveler's best friend may turn out to be himself. Hiro encounters a future version of himself, sword drawn, at the episode's climax. Ever read The Time Traveler's Wife? It's one of my all time favorites. One of the best scenes takes place in a museum, in which Harry DeTamble takes his five year old self on a tour, after-hours. Over the years, he teaches himself how to fight, how to pick locks and other handy skills for the person occasionally-naked-in-middle-of-nowhere. The definition of self-taught.

Anway. Very cool ep, very cool stuff. Neat.
