This first portion was rather short, about 3 minutes, but I liked it and the related graphic novel was cool. I'm beginning to wonder if Rachel is just reliving what happened 12 hours or go, or if Angela is using her ability to have a dream. Might Angela's ability actually be the same as Sanjog's? I'm guessing we're going to find out rather soon...--MiamiVolts (talk) 18:15, 16 December 2008 (EST)

My thoughts

Any one think that the explosion that happened was actually them at pinehearst? and it happened when flint blew up the formula? Or is it possible that this was suppossed to be obvious and I didnt pick up on it quickly? Also, did rachel ever inject the formula, or did use a power she had previously? she didnt seemed to surprised when she teleported.--Alchemist (talk) 14:46, 17 December 2008 (EST)

  • I think there was a BTS video where they said it was the same explosion at Pinehearst, and now "we get to see what happens to the rest of the Marines" or something like that. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 18:56, 17 December 2008 (EST)
    • Yeah, it's the Behind the Scenes video for Part 1 that says that.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:04, 17 December 2008 (EST)

Rachel's power

  • On Scott's page,it saids that he was the only Marine that recieved the formula so I guess that Rachel's power is natulal.SPARTAN-077 17:48, 17 December 2008 (EST)
    • No, Scott's page needs to be updated since we don't know that. Though I thought there was a line in Dual that said a dozen soldiers were being injected right then. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 18:56, 17 December 2008 (EST)
      • I think the line was that a dozen soldiers were being prepared to receive an injection. However, Ryan is right that we don't know if anyone else got injected. Regarding Rachel, as far as we know she manifested without an injection.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:03, 17 December 2008 (EST)
        • In this webisode they referred to "When the times comes," of them getting injected. None of them had been injected yet, so the ability is natural. Also, in "Dual," it did say that at first, that more marines were being prepared for injection, but later Scott says Tracy was worried Nathan hadn't returned so postponed this. Super-Hiro

Part or Chapter?

  • I thought its "Chapter" instead of "Part".--NiveKJ13 (talk2me) 15:22, 18 December 2008 (EST)
    • Both terms have been used, so they are interchangeable but we are being consistent in using part.--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:47, 18 December 2008 (EST)
      • "Part" hasn't really been used on-screen has it? I don't get it why we keep insisting on it... --Pierre 08:44, 19 December 2008 (EST)

Injected, or inhaled?

  • I understand that in all previous forms of the formula, it is injected, but if you watch Mohinder when he lands in it, it enters through his mouth. Is it possible to say (theorize) that the formula need not be injected? Following the Mohindy example, it might be possible that everyone there inhaled a gaseous form of the formula. Anomy 16:20, 18 December 2008 (EST)
    • It's also possible that it just needed to be physically rubbed on his body and he never ingested it orally. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:24, 18 December 2008 (EST)
      • I agree; I always thought it was just because the formula came into contact with Mohinder's scales that he was cured. Sincerely, Thrashmeister [ U | T | C ] 08:42, 19 December 2008 (EST)
    • True, but that doesn't really help for Rachel's new ability. NOTE: Before any body questions as to why she didn't spasm like the injected on did, note that Mohindy didn't either, and also note that this is not a physical ability like the injected dudes was. Anomy 16:26, 18 December 2008 (EST)
      • I don't think there is any evidence yet, that Rachel was injected. It is just as possible that she is a natural evolved human who just manifested the first time in this webisode, since we know eclipses caused many of our first-season folks to manifest, and an eclipse had just happened. At this point, we can't confirm where Rachel's Teleport ability came from. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 12/18/2008 16:29 (EST)
    • I watched the scene again, and Mohinder doesn't get "cured" as you put it, until the formula splashes into his mouth. Angielynne 16:26, 19 December 2008 (EST)

Old vs New formula

Anyone else think that the 'unauthorized' version of the formula Angela accuses Rachel of stealing is Mohinder's /an un-catalyzed version? That really seemed to pop out at me when i watched this, plus the fact that they found it in a lower lab (not mohindy's since that was in the process of blowing up) makes me think it may have been one of his earlier attempts.

Also for the record, I think Rachel's ability is natural. Her ability manifested itself in an adrenaline-pumping situation, as we've seen many of our original heroes do. Also, as someone above mentioned, there WAS an eclipse just a short while ago....Thelink 08:40, 19 December 2008 (EST)

Next-Previous Ordering mess clean-up

I've tried to fix the problem they've created with releasing multiple arced webisodes at the same time (Recruit and Hard Knox being intermingled on release date). Since each webisode arc is a stand-alone arc not related to the others, the previous and next links only link within the current arc. The webisode template on each page at the bottom gives the read the opportunity to go to any of the other arcs, and navigate through them. This way, we don't get into the mess of trying to tie different webisode arcs to each other in the navigation, which makes it really confusing. I hope this makes things more clear, and gives the webisode pages a better flow...since they aren't chronological animals like the episodes and graphic novels have been. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 01/6/2009 10:55 (EST)

  • Actually, the Going Postal, Hard Knox and The Recruit web series are chronologically related to each other, but in actuality that shouldn't matter since for the graphic novels, we still list the non-storyline graphic novels as being in sequence with the other graphic novels. I don't see what's wrong with doing so here for consistency. I had it listed the same way we list graphic novels series that are published out of order. I think that we need to use that way to be consistent. I undid changes to it twice before, and discussed it with those who changed it and RGS. To clear up the confusion, I added nextpart and lastpart after suggesting it. I don't consider removing the next/prev webisodes completely from the infoboxes an improvement.--MiamiVolts (talk) 14:31, 6 January 2009 (EST)
    • Not wanting to step on your toes at all here. To me, the way they released(are releasing) the Recruit and Knox stories intermingily (sp?) makes how we do the 'next-previous' look really odd; even with adding the 'next-prev' part qualifiers to attempt to make it less confusing. My intent was to fix it so that if you went to any webisode; you can easily tell which one goes with it, in either direction; and you aren't seeing pointers to another webisode arc that isn't related to the one you are on. Since the webisode template at the bottom of each page (in the blue blurb) shows all of them in their proper order together, it makes it real simple now to tell where you are in an arc; and what stories go together. If there is ever a time when they run 3 or 4 webisode arcs at the same time, that are multiple series, it will really get to be a huge mess trying to keep things straight. With it this way, it will never matter how many are produced at any given time, or overlap; it will be clear what is next within the current arc; and what other webisode arcs are available. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 01/6/2009 14:55 (EST)
      • I understand you prefer to order them sequentially, but they've released a couple graphic novel series at the same time too. So by your logic, we should change the graphic novel series as well to be consistent. Since we aren't willing to do that yet, then I think we need to be consistent here. If we come to the situation you are describing where we get 3 or 4 webisode/graphic novel arcs at the same time, we should discuss it then to see what the consensus is. Right now, there is not consensus for changing the order to be by series only.--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:28, 6 January 2009 (EST)
