Heroes Reborn 1.4: GPS RIP

Heroes Reborn continues to move along at a breakneck pace, literally in the case of at least one major character in episode 1.4.

Molly Walker, as I said in previous reviews of the reborn series, was one of my favorite heroes in the original series. I would have liked to have seen more of her this Fall, but I guess taking her own life had a heartbreaking logic.

It's a victory for our side - the E.P.I.C. locators can no longer hijack her power - but it comes at a tragic price. The two sides will now be a little more evenly matched, but as long as the distaff half of the killing team is on the loose, no hero will safe. Fortunately her partner apparently has a conscience, and indeed is beginning to display heroic powers himself. On the other hand, it was sad to see the priest shot to death by another deadly hero hunter, before the priest had a chance to thoroughly turn to fog.

The myriad story lines are beginning to coalesce, as the butterfly woman leaves the Arctic and Miko comes to America, and I'm looking forward to more.
