  • So we've discovered in "Everyone Says I Love You" that Aaron's powers are due to A.I.'s serving him. The A.I.s view him as this God-Like person and Aaron didn't want any part of that and told the Nanites to leave him alone. However, after Cynthia was shot, Aaron went all darkside and ordered the nanites to kill all the Patriots in the building. Yet after that... the Nanites decided to leave. In my opinion I think Aaron hurt their feelings and he also confused them with his capricious requests. So what's next? Will Aaron some how get the Nanites back? I hope so! I want Aaron to heal Miles who is now dying from his infection.

    • I think the nanites are gone, but will come back a couple episodes later. Otherwise, Aaron is weak.

    • Maybe they'll come back later, different, after they develop their own moral compass and maybe a better understanding of humanity.

    • Is Cynthia died? I wasn't able to see the previews for next week. It almost looked like she was breathing at the very last shot at the end of the show but that could had been bad acting too :)

    • I dunno, I think she's dead. For now. Maybe the nanite-kid will have a change of heart (hearts?) and heal her.

    • I hope the Nanites come back to help them, or else Cynthia and Miles will be dead beyond resurrection. (Eek)

      I have notice a lot of people pretty mad at both the Nanites and Aaron. I would say that both of them are at fault. On one hand, you have the Nanites that are not human, have little concept of humanity, and clearly needs a moral compass. On the other hand, you have Aaron who is unambitious, cowardly, small-minded, selfish, and ambivalent.

      I understand if people don't like are Aaron approached the situation. In fact, I think people weren't supposed to like it. Have you heard of deconstruction, as it applies to literature? I am convinced that Aaron deconstructs the concept of just wanting to be left alone, because he got what he wanted...and ended up wishing he didn't.

      Aaron might think it's over, but he's very wrong. The latest entry in Aaron's Journal reveals that Dr. Calvin Horn got his hands on the journal, and is warning the protagonists that others will come for Aaron if Horn fails. Uh-oh.

    • I agree, Aaron is not exactly the best roll model when it comes to morals; the Nanites should've checked with Charlie and the rest too. Sometimes, what we think we want isn't what we actually want. As for Horn's warning, *cues Jaws theme* things can always get worse.

      He had bigger problems. Turning the power back on isn't exactly the focus of Season 2 anyway.

      It did occur to me that Aaron could have asked the nanites to turn the power back on but for that to happen, the nanites would have to shut their selves down as Aaron did to them the first time. I don't believe that the emergent AI now controlling them is going to want to shutdown which could render it inoperable.

      Here's what I think happened at the tower. Aaron attempts to shut down the nanites to turn on the power, the commands sent to the nanites awaken them into self awareness. Because they recognized the creator of the code, they turned on the power but in doing so, allowed Randall to accomplish his objective. When they achieved awareness, they had two immediate problems to deal with. First, Aaron had the abiltity to enable and disable them via the tower and Second, Randal's nukes were already probably too close to their destination to propagate the command through the entire population of nanites to disable the missiles. They probably figured that killing the tower would prevent Aaron from being able to disable them again and also prevent others from repeating what Randall had accomplised. (Just my opinion. Feel free to critic it.)

    • Also, asking the Nanites to turn the power back on would entail them turning themselves off; meaning that the Nanites would die, if you will

      Personally, I would've told them to 1. kill Horn, 2. Heal Cynthia,  3. Knock out the Patriots.

    • God this show is so frustrating!!!! Aaron, in a moment of sheer stupidity (isn't he supposed to be some sort of wiz???) orders the Nanites to piss off. Which doesn't make sense for a number of reasons. Firstly - the Nanites have been ridiculously helpful to him throughout the entire season! And it is probably not the best idea to piss off the incredibly powerful AI by shouting at them for what you told them to do... they wanted to help! Also, just saying, he could have been a bit politer to them before that. Manners Aaron, manners. 

      Secondly, when the Nanites came back to help him - and when they told him that he confused them - Aaron (if he wasn't a complete moron) might have tried to repare some bridges. Now I know that his gf was dead, but wouldn't it have been more helpful to be polite, apologise and then ask for their help? AI doesn't have emotions (that I know of yet) and I'm sure Aaron could have exmplained to them that he was sorry, heat of the moment, didn't mean what he said yadda yadda.

      FINALLY, IF AARON HADN'T SENT THEM AWAY IN THE FIRST PLACE NONE OF THIS WOULD HAVE HAPPENED!!! GOD!!! Also, he could have just told them to kill the president, kill all the people in the evil army, and help out his friends!

      I CAN'T HANDLE THE IMPULSIVE, STUPID DECISIONS IN THIS SHOW. REALLY. FUCKING HELL AARON! GET SOME BLOODY INSIGHT AND STOP BEING SUCH A WIMP!!

      Well I hate to tell you this, but people tend to be impulsive in situations like that. It's just human nature. Also, Aaron has said before that he doesn't exactly want his powers.

    • The sad truth is that having the Nanites at Aaron's command like that qualifies as story-breaking power. If he had made proper use of them, every single Patriot in the show would be dead as a doornail, and then there would be no more story and no more show. So the plot had to make it so that Aaron loses access to the Nanites, and if that included him rejecting them out of cowardice and perhaps uncharacteristic idiocy, then that's what it will do.

      Yep, the story played Aaron's tendency for cowardice, impulsivity, short-sightedness, ambivalence, and desire to be left alone straight...and now realistic consequences have occurred. He has been left alone, his girlfriend Cynthia is dead with very little likelihood of being resurrected, and you can be sure that he is sincerely regretting wasted opportunities. (Shakes Head)

    • You know, Boy (that's the name given to the Nanite avatar) did keep mentioning the second biggest ball of twine in Springfield, Oklahoma. I wonder if there's a special secret there. Hmm....

      I did some looking on some maps, and wouldn't you know it, Oklahoma is adjacent to Texas. If Aaron heads to that location, it will take some time for him to get there. On the plus side, it's not like he's going from Philadelphia to Colorado, which took at least a month! (Grin)

    • Aaron's my favorite character in the show, at least in season 1. He was weak yet would pull through (or try to) in dangerous situations, and overall felt very human. I actually continued this show into season 2 because I wanted to see his character develope.

      I have to say, I was disappointed then, and I'm disappointed now. They took the aspect of Aaron that would at least try to fight back in vain and threw it out the window, making him almost entirely defenseless throughout the season, aside from when he DIED, when it was all inside his head, and when he was trying to get Priscilla back.

      This scene, out of all of Season 2, was what pissed me off the most. There were so many alternatives, such as simply telling the nano "What would happen if I healed her in front of the man with the gun?". But instead he goes to the I AM GIVING YOU A DIRECT ORDER PLEASE PLEASE. I can understand wanting them gone, as he killed an innocent person before, but the way he handled it after he went beast mode infuriated me.

    • The last person he killed was an abusive(remember the defensive wound cyn had? form him) cheating husband and his bitch

      and the others he killed, patriot soldiers and horn.

      i hardly think ANY of that counts as innocent.
