Heroes Spoilers: Company Man, Season 1, Episode 17

This is the Heroes spoilers blog for "Company Man", the next episode of Heroes, season 1, Episode 17. The "Company" in the title does not refer to Primatech Paper of PrimatechPaper.com fame. Oops almost forgot the standard disclaimer ... watch out spoilers ahead blah blah blah.

Heroes "Company Man", what a great title for this episode. The Heroes spoilers are on ever ambiguous H.R.G. Who is he? Where is he from? Why is he teamed up with a super hero the "Haitian"? Where did he get indestructible Claire?

Easy, we get answers to all these questions. H.R.G. it seems is part of a different "company", the implication being he's with the CIA. We do not know if he has been duped though. (It would be ironic if H.R.G.'s life has been a complete lie, to himself as well as his family?) You be the judge from this Heroes spoilers clip:



Pure speculation here, but maybe elements of the government decided they need to track the Heroes with superpowers, to track the threat, but not resort to assassinations. So the Heroes, like the "Haitian" may have agreed to cooperate, and team up. Pure speculation though, not spoilers. But are spoilers speculation? ... Only the blogger knows for sure ;)

As we already know from the previews, the H-M-T team (Heroes heroes Hana, Matt, Ted) go to confront H.R.G. They arrive at the H.R.G. manse before anyone arrives and start rifling the papers for information as shown in this recently released Heroes spoilers preview clip:



It turns out H.R.G. dissembles and stonewalls under interrogation. So, they decide that Matt will accompany H.R.G. to the paper factory of Primatech Paper (spy agency front operation?) and H.R.G. promises answers there. To keep his good faith unstable Ted will hold poor Mrs. Bennett hostage. We already know H.R.G. treated his family callously, so this will show us whether he has any honor:



Here is the official Heroes spoilers press release from NBC. Like all spoilers, we take these at the Heroes Spoilers blog with a grain of salt:

TAKEN HOSTAGE BY RADIOACTIVE TED SPRAGUE AND MATT, H.R.G.’S HIDDEN PAST IS REVEALED AND NOTHING WILL EVER BE THE SAME FOR CLAIRE


Claire is pitted against H.R.G. because she knows part of his secrets.

H.R.G.’s (Jack Coleman) past catches up to him as Matt (Greg Grunberg) and Ted Sprague (guest star Matthew John Armstrong), come to Texas looking for answers, and take him, his wife, son and Claire (Hayden Panettiere) hostage — leading to a tragic, explosive showdown. Secrets are revealed and new threats to the “heroes” are introduced.


Enjoy...
