What the hell is going on here?: "Heroes" the very late recap

Because of the fires in San Diego, a lot of the regular programming was pre-empted because of the fire coverage. As a result, a lot of the shows were aired over the weekend. That being said, here's a quick and dirty "Heroes" recap.

When we last left off poor Molly was trapped in her nightmares and Matt and Mohinder were both lost about what to do. Molly before she conked out tracked down Matt's dad who apparently had connections to the old heroes. Matt hooks up with Nathan and they fly to Philadelphia to confront him. It turns out that Matt's dad is a louse and he's the one stalking the old heroes. We also learn he has abilities similar to this DC Comics character.
We also see that his dad his headed to get Bob who runs The Company.

We also learn that the Company has sent an agent to find Peter (Kristen Bell) and she's willing to kill to get answers. Unfortunately her first victim is the guy who owns the pub where Peter's been hiding. Peter and his new girlfriend are hiding out in an apartment and Peter accidentally taps into Issac's powers to paint where he should go next. (So I guess Peter "permanently" retains powers.)

In New Orleans, Micah helps Monica get in touch with her "copycat" powers. She apparently can do anything she sees, like muscle memory. Micah shows her a comic book that Issac did (He must have done a bunch before his death) and shows her a character called St. Joan (two guess who this is going to really turn out to be.)

In Japan, Ando gets help deciphering Hiro's writing and we see them prepare for the battle of "The White Beard." (YAWN!)

The episode ends with Mohinder showing up at Monica's door saying he needs to help her and Ellie ordered home by her Daddy.

Episode grade: B.

What the hell is going ON with Heroes this season? I know it can get better, but right now I'm thinking, this show couldn't even FIND the drain, let alone circle it.

I know Tim Kring and his team of demented minions can do better than this because they spent all of last season doing better than this. I just wish they'd get back to making the kind of magic I know they're capable of.
