The line that's being drawn in the sand this season was made even clearer in this episode, and it's quite a surprise which side of the line Sylar's currently standing on. But this hour was not the Sylar show we've been seeing lately, but was more about Papa Petrelli getting his groove back, which he did in grand fashion. Also in this episode, Hiro made his way to Africa with Ando (!), Parkman and his turtle returned to the states, Daphne was pretty much everywhere and Mohinder tried to get the best of Nathan and Tracy. Plus, Claire played a game of Russian roulette and much, much more, so let's jump in.
This episode found many of the Walkers struggling to give up something of value in order to move forward with their lives, regardless of the emotional consequences. Nora found herself selling off William's old possessions to make way for a new office. Kitty had to give up being Robert's "stellar" communications director to publish her book. Kevin was tempted to replace Kitty on Robert's staff, but it would mean giving up all the work he had done toward becoming partner. Sadly, Rebecca doesn’t get a reward for what she gives up: Her seemingly good-intentioned attempt to move past her issues of distrust with Holly only brings Rebecca more reason to keep her distance.
"I always felt we met so both our lives could be better."
No matter how much of a loner Don Draper is in the boardroom, the statement above (and the woman who spoke it) just might explain why it is that, in the two seasons we've known Don, he's always seeking some sort of extra connection. Before fully immersing himself into Don Draper's life, Dick Whitman had a special partnership with the real Don's wife, Anna, and thought he had found something similar in Betty. But of course, he's jumped from woman to woman since then, looking for a partnership that does make both lives better. In this episode, Don reconnects with Anna (and the world), while Betty, Bert Cooper, Pete and Joan all make (or break) their own special partnerships.
