I'll play! Did it involve a sword and stabbing motions, at which point you blinked and then screamed "Noooooooo!" like a Skywalker?
Cuz that's what did it for me. Although the scene by the carousel got kinda close...
I couldn't say anything but "NO" for at least ten minutes.
I might have stopped mid conversation later that night in order to say "No" repeatedly, along with a few choice words about how much of an idiot a certain someone is, as well as to curse Kring's name because that was probably my favorite friendship on tv for a long time...
If it really happened the way it looked like it did (I can harbor the hope that it was some kind of deception, right? Right?) I also felt like the build up to it was too brief and forced.
::weeps and flails::
Yeah, I figure it didn't really happen. Hiro stopped time, arranged for a realistic looking Ando-dummy, then stabbed the dummy. Or something. It was a very realistic dummy though. Still, I think deception is definitely the case here.
Maybe there's multiple Andos (Like how Jessica was actually triplets) and Hiro replaced the good Ando with an evil triplet. Just like the evil!future!Ando was the other evil triplet. Ando would never ever try to hurt Hiro, right? Right? ::shifty eyes::
The hell he wouldn't. Ando knows full well that's Hiro's Hero Complex can be completely overblown. He'd probably commit seppeku after doing it, but if he thought for any reason that Hiro's continued survival was sufficiently damaging to the world that killing him would help save lives, he'd do it.
Of course, at the piont where Hiro was killed, it looked a lot like it was too late for the world anyway, so Ando was really just carrying out vengence for Hiro's lack of foresight and the resulting end of the world. But still.
Hmm. I find this explanation acceptable. Not preferable (c'mon, Ando triplets is an awesome idea! heh) but if Hiro screwed up, it would be the honorable thing to do as his best friend...
Okay, so I feel like my comment here was totally vindicated, having watched last night's episode. (And hopefully I'm no spoiling too much by saying that.)
In the spirit of spoiler free: ditto. This season is making me so many shades of pleased. :)
I'll play! The first two guesses don't count, do they?
Seriously, Heroes. WTF.
"All of them"?
There was definitely a lot of internal flailing on this flatmate's part at least.
I just - it's all a big dream coma after Nathan was shot, isn't it?
I wouldn't put it past them, that's for sure.
There is nothing, nothing I would put past them right now.
*munches on popcorn*
I couldn't even flail. I just flat-out don't BUY it. It's not even denial by effort of will, it's just ... seriously, writers? Seriously? You expect us to believe that?
Not a chance.
