Watch Out for That White Death Pod!

Am I a bad POC for not actively engaging in the Great Cultural Appropriation Debate and not being offended by all the great many things I'm apparently supposed to be offended by? Sometimes I wonder.

Chuck

So Roark Industries is supposed to be Google, right? They have those little ball things at Google, I think. And they dine on sunshine and rainbows and have personal masseuses and get to see all the blockbuster movies two weeks early. That's what I hear about Google.

I was about to say something about the guy asking what Chuck did after "graduating" from Stanford, but I just remembered that the CIA gave him his diploma. So I guess he can put that he graduated on his résumé?

I can't believe Chuck pulled a gun on Casey. Casey! A tranq gun, but still. That kid's got balls.

The whole Internet basically figured out that Orion was Chuck's dad, so that was no big surprise. Even though he didn't really explain exactly how he faked his death. And I didn't totally follow the reason he had to leave to protect Chuck and Ellie. And I forgot what happened to their mom. Did she die?

Bakula's looking better than Chase.

Heroes

I really think the show has been markedly better since Bryan Fuller's return. Unless I'm just seeing what I want to see. But it just feels more like the show we all loved back in season one.

Now that Sylar's a shapeshifter, I keep thinking Everyone Is Sylar. So in that first scene I thought Sandra was Sylar, but nooo, it was Danko who was Sylar for no apparent reason. And then later on I really did suspect Sandra was Sylar and she was. And then I thought that Noah was Sylar and he wasn't. GOD. I'll bet it's fun for the actors.

I'm glad Bennet didn't just take Sylar's body at face value, and I love that Sylar really can push his buttons. It was fun yet sad to see Bennet become more and more paranoid. I don't remember what Sylar really has against Bennet, though. Why the sudden urge to Destroy Him? I mean, sure, they've kind of been archenemies since the beginning of the series, but Sylar's motivations have been especially murky this season.

Loved the explanation for how Sylar survived the Primatech collapse. Ha, melting glass. I will actually buy that, whatever.

Are we supposed to feel sorry for Danko? Because I do not, although that story was interesting. He is kind of a person! And, damn, if Matt had actually gone through with killing Elena, I would have wished for his swift death so very fast.

I love that this show will still have an entire scene in subtitled Japanese. And...then introduce a Japanese-Texan, haaaaa. That guy needs to come back somehow.

Ando's faaaaaaaaaaace was great.

What happened at Coyote Sands? There are bodies with holes in their heads. I WANT TO KNOW THE ANSWER TO THIS CRAZY MYSTERY THAT WAS JUST RANDOMLY INTRODUCED MYSTERIOUSLY IN THIS EPISODE. WHAT THE HELL.
