Monhinder left his apartment with Maya and brought her to Pinehearst to be "cured". That involved Arthur Petrelli taking her power away. Apparently she is leaving the U.S. and making amends for all the people she's killed. So good bye Maya! I'm glad she's gone because I really didn't like her.
Peter was stuck, without powers, at Pinehearst. His dad was trying to get him to work with him but Peter said Arthur is evil. Arthur Petrelli is evil and creepy. Then Arthur decides to let Mohinder use Peter as a guinea pig for testing the formula. Just as he's about to inject him, Sylar shows up to rescue him. There's a fight and Arthur comes in and talks to Sylar. He tells him the "truth", which we don't really get to hear. All we find out is that Angela tried to kill Sylar because she had a dream about what a monster he would be and that's why they gave him up for adoption. So now Sylar has joined Arthur. Peter still refuses and Sylar throws him out the window.
When he lands and isn't dead, because Sylar made sure he didn't die, there is Claire and Elle. They were both going to Pinehearst to find out what was wrong with them. Elle's ability is out of control and Claire can't feel pain. Claire helps Peter and Elle decides to go into the company even though Peter tells her not to.
They call Nathan over and he talks with Peter. He tells Nathan that their father is alive and he's evil. Nathan promises to not go to the company, but it's a lie. Him and Tracy are going to work to take down the company.
Daphne is supposed to kill Matt, but his dad doesn't want him dead. Arthur ends up killing Maury and Daphne goes to Matt's place to kill him. She points a gun to him but he convinces her not to kill him. Knox comes and tries to kill Matt and does, except in only happened in his mind. Turns out Daphne is still working for Arthur because we see her talking to him on the phone.
Hiro and Ando are in Africa still. They eat that stuff that makes you see the future. Hiro's eyes go white and the show ends.
Next episode we're revisiting the past for all of them. I missed not seeing Noah this episode, although I guess he was in one scene. Also what happened to West? Did he just fly away to never return? I'm not sure if I like Peter without abilities. I do think he'll get them back somehow though. Oh and what about Caitlan? She's stuck in the future and Peter just totally forgot about her. And Molly, where is she? I know they said she was somewhere safe, but where is that?

I read this book a while back but wanted to write about it. It was a really good book. I actually ended up liking this book better than the Twilight books. The book is The Host by Stephenie Meyer and it's an adult book. It's about an alien race, called souls that take over people's bodies. It's like Invasion of the Body Snatchers. This is from the alien's point of view though. If you haven't read the book don't read what I'm about to write.
Melanie is captured by souls who then inplant one into her. The souls take over the bodies and the previous inhabitant pretty much ceases to exist. In Melanie's case she didn't want to stop existing and the soul they implant, Wanderer has to share the body. Melanie tries to fight Wanderer by showing her how much she loves Jared and her little brother Jamie. This then leads to Wanderer to also love Jared and Jamie. They set out together to find them and they do in Arizona. They are held prisoner there and eventually help the humans. Wanderer helps them and shows them how to take the souls out without killing the host or the souls. Wanderer ends up falling in love with Ian, a human. She accepts that she has to be taken out of Melanie and put into hibernation. They take the souls out and put them in a hibernation chamber and are sent back to a station where they are sent to another planet. Except that she doesn't want to go into hibernation she just wants them to let her die. So she is taken out of Melanie's body and the humans decide to implant her into a 17 year old. She then gets to be with Ian who she loves. Melanie gets her body back and is able to be with Jared. At the end of the book they run into another clan that also has a soul helping them.
Stephenie Meyer says she's planning to write two more sequels to this book. I really hope she does.

Next week is Halloween, I can't believe it. It sure snuck up on me. I still have to make a belt to go with Xavier's costume. I think I might do it tomorrow morning. We're going to a Halloween Carnival at the community center on Saturday and he needs his costume. I'm still giving him the choice of a Jedi or warrior. It is the same costume and same belt. The only difference is wearing a light saber or wearing a sword & shield. I was also going to make a sheath for his sword and attach it to his belt. I'll post pictures of the kids after Halloween.
