Huh.

I always wondered why Noah would suddenly need glasses at his age. --  Seclusion  talk / contribs 03:48, 26 February 2008 (EST)

  • Why couldn't he have just been telling the truth that he got older and needed glasses? It was an okay novel, but not terribly exciting. I was hoping for War Buddies, Part 8. :( As an aside, it is interesting that there was/is an actual "Butler" family. The Bennets borrowed their name in Volume/Season 2.--MiamiVolts (talk) 04:26, 26 February 2008 (EST)
    • I was hoping for them to go ahead and jump into Linda Tavara's backstory. D: --NellaBishop 06:28, 26 February 2008 (EST)
      • Yes, that's what I am hoping War Buddies, Part 8 will be about (assuming there is one).--MiamiVolts (talk) 06:31, 26 February 2008 (EST)
        • I think Linda's story will continue. I don't think it'll be called "War Buddies". Everything in the War Buddies story has been about Dallas and Austin. Unless we see Linda meeting Dallas, I think Linda's story will stand on its own. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 08:18, 26 February 2008 (EST)
      • I believe this was the story Chuck Kim talked about here. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 12:59, 26 February 2008 (EST)

Level 5

I bet Grigsby will be one of the villains in Season 3. He's in the cell on level 5, and Angela said something about escaped prisoners from level 5 in the sneak peek... --Looky 08:14, 26 February 2008 (EST)

  • I doubt it. I can only think of one instance in which a character started in the graphic novels and ended up onscreen: Hana. The purpose of this graphic novel was very much to explain Noah's glasses, not to introduce a new character. Grigsby was a byproduct of the story, not the focus of it. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 08:20, 26 February 2008 (EST)
    • Well, he could be the second. And his power could look great onscreen. :) --Looky 08:22, 26 February 2008 (EST)

The Haitian

I love him too much now. Even Bennet cannot believe that he got the Haitian working with him. To be honest, though, I think he just fell asleep in the graphic novel - the Haitian wouldn't get knocked out by a pansy like Howard Grigsby. --DocM 09:36, 26 February 2008 (EST)

Trivia

  • Lots of little easter eggs in this novel. Mr. Bennet saying "HRG" reading the eye chart, Grigsby, the Butlers. --Hero!(talk)(contribs) 13:01, 26 February 2008 (EST)

What about Company Man?

I have a hard time making this fit with the scene from Company Man where Noah picks out his glasses. He said that his father needed glasses at the same age that he was. That's quite a coincidence. Claire even wondered if this meant that she would need glasses too, which prompted him to reveal that she was adopted. Conduit 15:12, 26 February 2008 (EST)

  • Actually, it does fit with Company Man. He was lying to his daughter the true reason for his vision impairment, and that his father needed glasses at the same age that he was was also likely a lie.--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:44, 26 February 2008 (EST)
    • Kinda shows the fickleness of little white lies-- one tiny secret can reveal a much bigger one. --NellaBishop 16:23, 26 February 2008 (EST)
      • Indeed, this novel has me thinking now about what Noah's parents did for a living (i.e. if either of them worked for the Company).--MiamiVolts (talk) 16:33, 26 February 2008 (EST)

Season 2

Would the healing blood not have cured Bennet's impairment? --mc_hammark 11:26, 24 August 2009 (EDT)

  • Not sure, healing wouldn't work on already healed tissue, say scars, so since his sight was already "scarred", I don't think it would have. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 11:41, 24 August 2009 (EDT)
  • But it healed Nathan after he was burned by radiation. It was around, what, three four months after that and the skin underneath would have begun to heal. I suppose it may just be a plot hole to keep his glasses. --mc_hammark 11:44, 24 August 2009 (EDT)
