11:09 PM 11/18/08 · Back during the 1st season of Heroes I proposed a connection between the eclipses and all of their powers. I figured the logo had to be more than something pretty to be in the opening credits and the eclipses in the show did seem to coincide with great changes.Not everybody warmed to this idea.Most thought I was more than a bit nuts.To all of you that scoffed and ridiculed me for suggesting it...you are all poopie heads!Ha!
Well, I wasn't one of the people who scoffed at the idea, but it doesn't really make any sense. Most of the characters manifested their abilities in Six Months Ago, some even before that. The fact that it is now canon is a huge plothole.
Adam had his abilities in the past, just a bit after an eclipse that Hiro witnessed. Different eclipses.
I know, but I didn't mention Adam in my post. The fact still stands: Claire, Peter, Nathan, Gabriel, and Niki all manifested their abilties in Six Months Ago, and even if we were to pretend that that episode never happened, most of the characters were already using their abilities in the pilot, before the eclipse took place. It's a plothole.
Before that one. They may've activated from a previous eclipse.
.. do eclipses occur that often?
Complete ones, no. Partial, yuppers!
