Heroes - Ink (09/28)

This was a good episode, but it seems like not too much happened.

Matt - Still being haunted by Sylar. He tells his sponsor/partner that he has broken his 30 day sobriety and "used" and his drug is his power. They are staking out a place and his partner doesn't think he can handle it. But Matt convinces him he can. While they're searching the place for drugs Sylar is constantly bugging Matt. He leads him to the bathroom and finds a stuffed pink bunny. Sylar is trying to make him use his power to find out what's going on. He finally finds a ransom note put together by cut up magazines. Matt finally uses his power because he thinks a little girl's life is at stake and finds out she's under the stairs. He finds her and she's dead and Matt looses it and beats up the guy. His partner comes in and Matt tells him what's going on. Turns out there was no ransom note and no little girl under the stairs. Sylar's response "I used your own power against you" Matt is in big trouble so he does the logical thing and uses his power to convince his partner that the guy attacked him and Matt had no choice. Looks like Matt is going to help Sylar get his body back.

Samuel - He is dressing up in a suit and talking to Lydia (I think that's her name). He tells her he's found Joseph's replacement (that's his dead brother) and that he needs to go to his hometown. He sucks up some ink with his hands to be used later.

Peter - He is being sued by someone he saved. The guy that is suing him is Samuel. He claims he was on a bus and Peter was not being careful and hurt his shoulder and now he can't work and he wants some empathy. All Peter does is say he was not on the bus and he is being scammed.

Samuel goes to Peter's apartment and inks himself in a newspaper cut out of the bus accident and Peter comes home and sees he was indeed in the bus. He finds him at the park and he tells Samuel he's sorry that he didn't remember him. Samuel decides not to sue him and they shake hands. He does something to Peter I just know it. We find out he put a compass on his wrist later on when Peter sees it. That is after Samuel visits his family home (his parents were the butler and maid) and there is party going on and he asks if he can come and see where he used to live. The lady says it's not a good time and closes the door. Samuel gets angry and causes a sink hole. That is where Peter comes in as a paramedic and sees the house inside the sink hole and his compass appears. With Samuel looking on.

We meet a new person named Emma. She is deaf and can suddenly "see" sounds. She doesn't understand this and goes to her Doctor. She tells her that sometimes things like that happen to people that loose one of their senses and other senses are heightened. Turns out Peter meets Emma since she works at the hospital and he needs to see Samuel's file. She points to a note that says request need to be written down. He sees she has headphones but nothing plugged into them. Later on she is sitting at a park and can see the music coming from a cello. The guy gets up to get a hot dog and she starts playing. Which gets Peter's attention since he's also at the park.

Claire: She has to deal with Gretchen knowing her power. Except she's avoiding her and then when confronted she tells her she didn't see what she thinks she saw. Noah is there to take Claire to lunch and invites Gretchen to come along. He figures out that Gretchen knows and wants to call in the Haitian to erase her memory. Claire objects and tells him that she'll take care of it and that she's grown up and needs to deal with her own problems. So her and Gretchen talk in her room and Claire tells her everything. Then she invites her to be her roommate. I don't trust Gretchen and I think she has a hidden agenda.

TV again

I got caught up on my shows this weekend. This includes: Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, Grey's Anatomy, The Office and the new show Flashforward.

The Vampire Diaries
I read the book series and so far a few things have changed. But overall I am liking the show and will continue to watch it.

Supernatural:
I LOVE this show and will of course watch it. I'm curious to see where they are going with this whole Apocalypse thing and Lucifer coming to earth. Next week's episode looks good with Dean going to the future 5 years and seeing himself and Sam. Looks like Sam indeed became Lucifer's vessel.

Grey's Anatomy:
George O'Malley is dead and it looks like the season premiere pretty much wrapped up everyone's grief so I don't think we'll be seeing too much of that. With Seattle Grace merging with Mercy looks like everyone will be fighting to keep their jobs and they'll probably introduce new characters.

The Office:
It's all leading up to Pam & Jim's wedding and the pregnancy. Last week's was pretty funny and now both Jim and Michael are in charge. Also Dwight did not look happy about this.

Flashforward:
It had a Lost feel to it and did interest me a lot. I'm thinking there are some people that did not black out and they probably have something to do with it. Also where was Demetri? Shouldn't he have been in the car with is partner and both waking up at the same time. Plus he didn't "see" anything when he blacked out. Either he didn't black out or something else happened with him.

Looking forward to Heroes tonight. Also I wish Chuck was on right after Heroes like last season. But Chuck won't be back until February I think.

Heroes - Season Premiere

I have been reading the graphic novels online. There were not too many this summer, but the last two were about Tracy. Basically she talked to Micah and got information on all the people that worked in Building 26. She set out to kill everyone and Noah Bennet was the fifth one. So it was no surprise to me when his car started filling up with water. Then Danko came and saved him and wanted him to join him to kill Tracy. Noah refused and he ends up talking to Tracy and tell her that he wants to help her and that he will take care of Danko. He takes care of Danko by having the Haitian erase his memory of Tracy. So Tracy goes to Danko's apartment to kill him but he doesn't recognize her. She changes her mind about killing him and turns to leave but hears voices and follows the sound. A really fast guy with knives is killing Danko and looking for something. He tries to kill Tracy but she's made out of water and doesn't die and the guy leaves. She calls Noah and he gets a key from Danko.

The key belongs to a safe deposit box. Noah convinces Peter to come with him and Peter only agrees because he wants the super fast ability. What's in the safe deposit box? A compass that doesn't work, except for when Peter holds it. The super fast guy comes and Peter steals his ability and they fight. Noah wants Peter to keep the compass but Peter just wants to live his normal life. Of course this is a big mistake because Fast Knife guy gets Noah and takes the compass.

Who wants the compass? A carnival guy named Samuel. His carnival is full of people with powers and his brother just died. His ability is to use ink on people and he has the power to make the ink do whatever he wants. This ability combined with a tattooed woman somehow can help him. He puts ink on the girl's back and that's how he knows he needs to kill Danko and that Danko has the compass. Fast Knife Guy is a carnival guy and Samuel makes him go get Danko. He is also looking for a new teleporter guy and finds out he needs Hiro.

Hiro on the other hand is not doing too well. He's dying because his ability is going haywire. He'll freeze and leap in time without being able to control it. He goes back 14 years to a carnival that Ando and his sister went to. At that carnival Hiro got his fortune and Hiro spilled a slushy on Kimiko's favorite dress and that's why she hates him. Samuel ses Hiro from the future and tells him he needs to change something from the past. Hiro refuses, but Samuel (he has the compass tattooed in his arm and it's moving wildly) pushes him and the slushy gets spilled on him instead of his sister. He leaps back to the present and Ando and Kimiko are together and have been for years. Hiro tells Ando about changing things and says that he must go back in time and change the wrongs.

Claire is off to college and meets her roommate Anna. She's an overachiever and has charted her whole life. Claire also meets another girl named Gretchen (something is not right with her) and they become friends. Then she finds Anna has jumped/pushed out the window. Gretchen thinks this is suspicious and tells Claire they need to find out the truth. She wants to steal a cadaver to probe that Anna was pushed because she would have landed differently. Claire can't sleep and decides to jump to see if Anna jumped. She lands the same way and figures out that Anna did kill herself. She pushes her ribs back in and fixes her broken arm and looks up and Gretchen is looking down at her. Uh oh!

Peter is again a Paramedic and is obsessed with saving lives. He has Monhinder's ability and he uses it to save people and he keeps track of it. He's so obsessed that he works non-stop. He says he's trying to make up for all the wrong that the Petrelli family has done. He gets Fast Knife guy's ability so he can be faster and save even more people. He hasn't talked to his mother in weeks or his brother (who is really Sylar).

Speaking of Sylar/Nathan, he's confused. He has lunch with Angela (she has a dream that it's Sylar that comes and the same scene is repeated only with Nathan) and she's freaked out because she sees that Sylar is trying to come out. Nathan/Sylar makes his cup move towards him and blue electricity sparks in his hands. He calls Peter and he leaves a message. Looks like Sylar will come out soon.

Matt is working for the police department and living with Janice and baby Matt. All seems well until he starts seeing Sylar everywhere. Looks like he has a part of Sylar's mind in his own. Sylar is trying to get him to use his ability and Matt refuses. He gets paranoid that Janice is having an affair with the water boy and finally uses his power on him so he changes his route. Score on for Sylar!

At the Carnival, Samuel says they need to gather the Heroes. On the girl's back we see Peter, Sylar and Claire. Somehow they need to get them.

I thought it was a good episode and I'm very curious to see who Samuel is and what is the deal with the compass. Looks like it only works for people with powers since it didn't work for Noah. Also is Samuel good or bad? I liked seeing Sylar and Nathan and like how they were able to put both in the episode.

A Little Late

I watched The Vampire Diaries on Thursday night. I have read the books by L.J. Smith and so I knew what the show would be about. I thought it was a good show and I'll watch it again this week. Well probably not until this weekend because Survivor starts on Thursday at the same time as Vampire Diaries is on. But they did change some things. Like giving the main character, Elena a teen brother instead of a 5 year old little sister. And they left out one of her friends. But overall I liked the show and though the two vampires were good in it.

Another show I watched last Thursday was Supernatural. I watched the first 3 seasons this summer, I had seen most of them but I was not an avid watcher until last season (season 4). So it was good to get caught up on the show. So I was very much looking forward to season 5. I thought the episode was good, but not great. I guess I was expecting more. Hopefully this season does not disappoint me.

Show looking forward to this week are:
Thursday, September 17th
CBS 7PM - Survivor:Samoa
CW 7PM - The Vampire Diaries
FOX 8PM - Fringe
CW 8PM - Supernatural
NBC 8PM - The Office

I'm thinking this weekend I'll be watching The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural & The Office

Also very excited for the season premiere of Heroes on Monday, September 21st. It is a 2 hour premiere and I can't wait!!

This weekend



Bees...aren't they cute? Well they are until you get stung by them and find out you're allergic to the sting.

The weekend started out fine. We went to the Renaissance Festival on Saturday. We took both of the kids and met sister-in-law, brother-in-law and nephew there around 9am. I even got a Henna tattoo on my arm of a dragonfly. We were sitting down eating a turkey leg when I got stung around 10:45. My arm swelled up and I got ice on it, I thought I would be fine. Until around 11am Dan said I was starting to get hives on my neck and face. We made it to the first aid tent and they gave me two benadryl pills and kept me for 1/2 hour. Dan in the meantime when around with the kids looking at the animals. I met up with him and we just took our time heading out, got apple dumplings and some sugar coated almonds to eat. On the road home I told Dan that my throat was a little swollen and that I was getting dizzy so we should stop at urgent care. At Urgent Care they gave me a shot of epinephrine and prednisone and kept a watch on me for over an hour. Then I had to go fill a prescription for an epi pen (which I have to always have on me) and prednisone (5 day supply). We got home Saturday night and were tired, but my arm felt better and the hives were totally gone.

Sunday we just hung around at home. I went to the grocery store with O and Dan went to Home Depot and Menards with X.

Yesterday we made snicker salad (snickers, apples from our tree, cool whip with vanilla pudding) and went to in-laws for a bbq. The kids had a blast but when we got home all hell broke loose because it was two kids that didn't get a nap. They both went to bed around 8pm last night.

Oh and I forgot to say how X's first day of school went. I got a call from the nurse around 11am saying he fell off the monkey bars and bumped his nose but he was fine. When I picked him up he was a chatterbox and his nose looked fine. He was very excited to be going back again today.

First Day of School

It was the first day of school today. We got lunch packed last night, which consisted of a ham and cheese sandwich, granola bar, blueberries and chocolate milk. We also picked out an outfit and packed the backpack. X was so excited last night he could hardly fall asleep. But this morning he woke up without any problems and was ready to go.

Getting breakfast for everyone. He was such a helper this morning, he filled all our bowls and got spoons and even milk.

Even the cat joined us for breakfast:

Heading to the car. He said his backpack was heavy but it didn't hardly have anything in it.


In the car, he insisted on holding his backpack and lunchbox on his lap.


We parked on the street and he is walking to the building.


In the cafeteria waiting for his teacher to come and take him to his classroom.

I pick him up around noon so I'll post how his first day went.
