Detail of 'Yuuwaku' by Audrey Kawasaki
Sorry for spamming your flist. resol37 commented on something I noticed in the Heroes S2 opener, but then forgot about: how much the apartment door in Parkman's hostage training scenario looked like Virginia Gray's apartment door. Well, there's a reason for that... 

The door in Parkman's training scenario:

The door to Virginia's apartment:

The hallway is configured a little differently--the little alcove Gabriel is standing in front of doesn't appear to be in the Parkman training, and I don't think the light behind Parkman's head is present in the Gabriel shot--but it's definitely the same door used in both shots, and the walls may even be the same color.  I hope they did that on purpose to mess with our minds, and not just getting sloppy with set recycling.

I just want to say upfront here that I usually hate people who refer to themselves in the third person with a serious passion. I'm putting this aside for the moment because...

resol37 FTW! *dances*

I'm seriously glad you brought that up, because the door numbers pinged in my head too, but I forgot all about it under the influence of Mohinder. I could not have told you what her apartment number was, so it's a bit odd that I recognized it just from the numbers' shape.

And I am so curious as to how the girls at Striped Wall get such good quality screencaps. Is it mostly due to having HD copies of the episodes? Because you can REALLY tell how crappy my screencaps are compared to theirs.

Ho-ly crap! I KNEW there was a reason I was paying so much attention to that door. The whole time they were focusing on it, I was like "16! 16! Who lives in apartment 16!?" I kept going down the list in my mind... Sylar, Peter, Mohinder, but I could not come up with anything. Then when he entered the apartment and I did not recognize anything I felt stupid. At least now I know I was not going crazy.

I'm surprised I noticed it at all, really. But I was so proud of myself when I did.

Oh my GOD. He must be pissed that they're using his mum's apartment for police training. But then, he can't really say much, I guess...
I wonder whose job it was to clean up that "painting?"

I started to make a joke about an OWI bag-and-tag team being sent out there. Then I realized that if we met another Linderman-like character, and I spotted a picture of that blood painting in his place, I would freak out...

Like I commented to resol37, this is really neat.

And sort of sad. As if it weren't bad enough that poor kooky Virginia lost the pretty door plaque for the "1"...

I had concocted a story in my head about how Gabriel found the pretty door plaques in an out-of-the-way shop, but they were out of "1"s, so he just bought her the "6" and told her he'd go back and get her the "1" later, but then he announced he was going to shut down the watch shop and travel the world for a while, and so she never got the "1". But she went ahead and put the "6" up, and touched it frequently as she came in the door because her boy gave it to her, and wished he'd come home and visit her soon.

That's...actually even more sad, isn't it?

I mean, C'MON, these are the same people who thought Gabriel's watchmaker glasses would be creepy.

I'm convinced we all hallucinated that remark. Honestly, how can anyone look at a dorky guy wearing glasses like that and NOT be completely charmed?
