Heroes 4-8: “Shadowboxing”

Is your head still hurting from last week’s episode? Mine too. I’ve thought about it more than anybody really should, and as near as I can determine, that episode should have exploded the space-time continuum. But luckily, things happen in a linear fashion this week, so it should be much simpler.
By the way, I watched this week’s episode with my friend, Lana. She had a couple of observations that didn’t occur to me, so I’ll give her proper credit when I get there. It’s also possible that I’ll be stealing a couple of her jokes, as well as her crush on Sylar.

In the back of an ambulance, Peter is treating a survivor of a train crash. He uses his power to fix him, and it’s clearly a strain. You know, I think this is the third train crash on this show. Trains are not a safe method of travel in the Heroes Universe. The hospital is a blur of activity because, you know, train crash.
