Heroes Cautionary Tales S02E09 (NBC)

Adam Monroe is Takezo Kensei.

How does a guy stay alive for 400 years without aging a day?

That’s the big question. In this episode, we see that all that Isaac Mendez has painted will come true. I find that this power is a really cool one. Future painting. The other power that I found interesting was Monica Hawkins’ muscle memory.

All the players are congregating to Costa Verde for a showdown. Things are not going as planned for anyone. Noah has alienated his daughter. Suresh is trapped in the company’s lies without even knowing.

This was an excellent episode. It’s all leading up to the mid season which will be the end of the second season of Heroes. More answers are revealed in this episode. Great stuff.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.
