So, what did you think of last nights episode?

What was up with Mr Thompson knowing and going to Nathan's office? Does he now know about Claire going to Paris? And what about Mrs. Petrelli knowing and talking to Mr. Thompson and Mr. Linderman? This is all getting weird. They ALL know each other. I think Mrs. Petrelli is one of them as well. What do you think? And what about her saying Nathan has to blow up NY for a greater purpose?

I'm confused already as to how they all know each other. I think since Linderman is a powerful figure, Nathan is somehow working for him to climb up the ladder. But what's the deal with him? He experiments with people with powers right? So what exactly does Thompson do? 'Coz he worked with Bennet before with Hiro's dad... Okay I'm lost now. I don't know why Nathan tells everything to those two people. Why do they want to blow up New York? What are they saving it from? From people with powers? I've seen the show from the start and still I don't get this... And Peter seems to be outside the loop in his family. Mommy Petrelli seems to know a whole lot more than she's revealed. It's like all of them are trying to stop each other.

I believe way back Nathan mentioned that Linderman and his father were friends a long time ago. A lot of us have the theory that Linderman, and the Petrelli's as well as Hiro's father all used to run together in their younger days, and are all connected somehow with their own special abilities. Thompson and Bennet both work(ed) for the same organisation owned by Linderman dealing with finding "heroes". It would seem that Thompson is higher up on the totem pole than Bennet. As for blowing up New York, read my post just above yours. I dont think Peter is aware of why they want him to blow up, but he only knows he does/can blow up.

As far as I know they need Nathan to win the election. So that after Peter goes nuclear he can be there to help NY pick up the pieces, making him a prime candidate for presidency in 5 years (or less) time. Im not sure what the Petrelli's do/used to do. I know Nathans character was a district attorney, as well as a Navy Pilot. I have a feeling that the father also was in the Law Arena but I cant recall for a surety. They seem to be a prominent family though.

Okay, you see, I did not see this show from the very beginning. So, I did not know all the history of the Petrelli Family. Thank you! :-)

I'm pretty sure Thompson knew Claire was going to Paris. It was Nathan's suggestion and it seems he tells them (Thompson and Linderman) everything. They want the bomb to explode (Linderman said it himself two episodes ago and Angela Petrelli also said it on the last episode) and they think Claire should be far away from NY, so this way she wouldn't try to stop it from happening. I think that's why Angela and Nathan asked Claire to go to Paris... But I don't know why they all know each other or why they all want the bomb to explode. Probably Angela and her husband were connected to Linderman in the past by their abilities, work (speaking of that, what did they do, exactly?) or something else.

Yeah, what is Mrs. Petrelli's ability anyway? Like I said on my previous comment, I started watching this show half way through the season to really understand all the charaters and what is going on.
