Heroes: Going Postal #3: Let's Talk


The knock at the door is of course more agents (again dressed in black suits so as not to confuse us).

After pressing ear plugs into Gina's hand and shoving her out the door, Echo lets the agents in. They of course don't want any trouble. They just want to talk. The trouble is, so does Echo. And he does... and more agents die.

We then skip forward thirteen weeks to find Echo bound, gagged and a resident of Level 5. Angela Petrelli's there, observing him through the glass. She lifts a finger up to her lips and goes "Shhhhh," a scene reminiscent of Sylar shushing Jesse Murphy in the episode "One of Us, One of Them."

And so the webisode ends.


I have to say, I was a little disappointed with the wrap up. How did The Company finally capture Echo? Is Gina dead? What happened to the cat? If the writers intend to answer some of these question in the series proper, then the webisodes may yet turn out to be an interesting addition to the Heroes canon.

But as a stand alone story, there just wasn't enough screen time to make you really care about Echo DeMille. His powers were vaguely interesting. But haven't we already had a sound manipulator? His abilities seemed identical to those of Jesse Murphy. So why was Echo restrained in his cell at Level 5, while Jesse was allowed to roam free and ungagged?

And I can't help but feel that the Constrictor was a feeble villain, with probably the duffest super power I've seen on the show. Great for taking lids off jars and cracking walnuts. Useless for just about anything else.

Lets hope there's a satisfactory payoff somewhere down the line.


Gina: "What are you gonna to do?"
Echo: "Tell these guys to get the hell off our front porch."

Agent: “We just wanna talk.”
Echo: “Nah, you're gonna listen.”

Angela: “Echo, Echo, Echo. You always were the mouthy one. I guess some things never change. Welcome home.”
