The 'Heroes' Begin to Plan

"Save the cheerleader. Save the world." It's cryptic for sure, but it makes more sense to us since we know who "the cheerleader" is and our heroes do not. The question is, from whom does Claire need saving? She's indestructible. I thought it may have been from her father, but I'm just not sure that he's that evil. He seems to want his daughter to be safe versus bring her harm. Plus, I don't think that he has any power over the heroes. Now, his mysterious friend is another story. We've seen him (Sylar?) render Matt's powers useless and erase the quarterback's memory, so I'm sure he could cause Claire to be powerless as well. The only problem -- he seems to be under the control of her father. And why is Claire the key to saving the world? Is it her power, her father or both? And while we're on the topic of questions, why did "Future Hiro" speak perfect English, but "Present Hiro" only speaks some? Perhaps, it has to do with what happens when all of the heroes come together to save the world. Out of all of the powers, Peter's is probably the most interesting. Being able to take on whatever power he is around came in very handy last night. He was able to finish Isaac's painting of the future to better decipher the "Save the cheerleader. Save the world" clue. And damn this show for always ending at the most crucial points. Hiro finally got through to Isaac, and talked to Peter who was at the studio and it was just in time for the two to discuss where they should meet (per "Future Hiro's" instructions on the subway train). Honestly, this show manages to get better and better every week with its intriguing story lines, central quest, awestruck moments (Nathan's flying) and shocking revelations. If you missed last night's episode, you can watch it from free at nbc.com.

Here's my problem with the whole "Save the cheerleader. Save the world" thing: I would mind if she died for good. And hopefully take the osmosis guy down with her too. The show would be much better without them.
