Heroes 2x09 Cautionary Tales Census

Er, warning, I get very angry in here.

Race

Hiro - the only saving grace in this episode.

Kaito - officially dead.

Kimiko - silent. Why am I not surprised?

Mohinder - ARGH PLOTLINE OF STUPID!!

Gender

Angela - ok, I lied, she was the other good thing about the episode.

Kimiko - silent

Molly - mindcontrolled by the man acting as her dad!

Claire - OMG HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE THIS STORYLINE! DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH ALLCAPS TO EXPRESS MY RAGE!

Seriously. I spent this entire episode yelling, "I fucking hate this. I hate it. I hate it." at the screen. The only reason I finished was to write this up. Like, I am thisclose to quitting the show.

First off, the confrontation with West. So suddenly everything's Claire's fault? Excuse me? Spygirl? Who exactly was the one pushing the relationship on her in the first place, asshat?

Then Noah and West. OMG HATE. HATE SO MUCH. I DID NOT THINK I WOULD EVER HATE MR. BENNET BUT I DO NOW! And it is not the happy to hate kind of enjoyment at his greyness. No, it is a I want to whack him over the head type. Seriously. Seriously?! He SYMPATHIZES WITH WEST?! Mrs. Bennet says West is LIKE him?! And somehow, given the smile on her face, I don't think she means "bullying, manipulative, and wrong." OMG. OMG. Just. Two men trading Claire around like an object. She gets no say in anything. The whole thing is about which one she will choose. And then, the two of them ally when yet another man kidnaps her!

I mean seriously! The trade-off scene? Two women/girls in bondage being traded off by groups of white men. Great. And then Claire gets shuffled off by West again. I cannot believe the show is honestly asking us to take West as a romantic interest. CANNOT BELIEVE. And somehow we are supposed to read all of his prior actions as GOOD because they were for her protection?! Excuse me while I throw up a little in my mouth here.

And who are the only other women in the storyline? Oh yes, a helpless mother who basically does everything her husband said and approves of her daughter's skanky ass boyfriend because he is like Mr. Bennet! And then there Elle, the psychotic killer. (Personally I like Elle, but that is despite everything we are being told about her.) Oh, and not just that... Elle can't just be a psychotic killer, no, she has to be oversexualized and run her hands over any guy she meets. WTF SHOW?! This is after you told us last week that she seduced Adam when she was 18.

And the entire storyline is to a) reduce Claire to a commodity (not only is she traded around from father to boyfriend to enemy and over again, she is wanted merely for her blood, not for who she is) and b) provide Mr. Bennet with a tragic death. Except he gets to recover from it. Hi, where was this magic healing blood when, oh say, Kaito or DL were dying? What, magical healing blood is only to resurrect dead white men and re-prettify them?

And? The plotline makes no sense even on a non-gender level because they had magical healing blood Adam locked up for FORTY YEARS. And for some stupid ass reason, they never got a reserve blood supply? What? How dumb is that?

ARGH. Just. ARRRRRRGH. I HATE THIS EPISODE WITH THE PASSION OF A THOUSAND FIERY SUNS! HAAAAATE. HAAAATE.
