    He did what he had to do once he decided to keep Claire for his own. Instead of being the ‘Company Man’ He saves her and saves himself. I expect that he will still have some moral abiguity in his role with the company but he is like some form of an underground railroad that frees gifted people and the slave master that runs them at the same time.

    His first name should be Jacob. Jacob was the character in the bible known as the “heel grabber” He stole the birthright of his older brother, worked seven years to earn the right to marry the woman of his choice but when the sisters were switched he worked another seven to get Rebbeca.

    In order to secure a blessing from God he wrestled with God until God gave the blessing but caused him to walk with a limp for the rest of his life.

    HRG is Jacob, wrestling with the right thing and the immediate. All the while taking lumps to get what he seeks.

    I think you don’t understand a bit of it FuDy.. HRG isn’t a genuinely bad person. The script wanted us to believe he was evil and always has ulterior motives. Maybe, at the beginning of his career, he made decisions on a deferent pov, but as his love for Claire grows, he’s able to look to himself in the mirror and reconsiders his loyalty to the company. In order to keep her from them, he protects his family the way he knows best.

    I’ll honestly hope that the Haitian guy truly is on HRG and Claire’s side and it isn’t a double plot with the company. HRG puts Claire’s faith into his hands, but I’m not sure if we could trust him.. This episode is closing with the Haitian clearing HRG’s mind so the Company wouldn’t be able to trace his memory and finding out what is really happening. Although I truly hope he won’t erase too much, because this otherwise could jeopardize his feeling towards Claire..

    what I am curious about is how Hiro’s dad is connected in the Company. Does he know that his own son has power?

    anyway re: HRG, I believe he did the right thing. Im just wondering how much memory he asked to be erased

    HRG tells the Haitian, Go deep. Take anything that would lead them to her.

    From this statement, it seems like HRG wants the Haitian to erase every memory of Claire.

  • NickO

    The plot lines wanted us to believe he was bad, but he was a good dad after all. However now with out the memories of Claire, he’s gonna be a baddie. Maybe Claire will have a Luke Skywalker moment.

    What this boils down to is “CONFLICT”. (& superbly done too)
    The conflict between loyalty to the company (HRG, “I would do what I have always done: What I’m told.”) and the love he has towards Clare.

    HRG is a baddie. Regardless of your opinion regarding his actions here. But it was good to see him choose his love of his daughter over his loyalty here.

    As the Haitian says she was no longer safe in plain sight and needs to run. This was HRG’s only option to keep her from the Company’s clutches.

    What i would like to know (apart from HRG’s first name) is:

    Who has authority that surpasses HRG’s and is important in Clare’s life?????

    /// Who has authority that surpasses HRG’s and is important in Clare’s life?????

    I’m starting to think the Haitian disobeying HRG, because he thought that keeping her memory would actually protect her more than erasing it.

    So, the Haitian wanted to help both HRG and Claire.

    The lines between baddie and goodie are not as clear as you would like.
    If you had children it would be obvious to you that HRGs’ main fear is for his daughter. In our lives the fear for our offsprings safety does not show as much, however imagine if you where faced with the horrors HRG faces with regards to his daughters safety, and you will realise that a parent that cares will go to inconceivable levels to protect their loved ones.
    Mark my words, he will come out of this saga as a “goodie”, even if it takes a while. Its very hard for love for your family to turn you down the path of evil.

    Haitian removed from Bennet anything that might lead The Company to Claire, and I would imagine he also meant anything that might incriminate himself. This means he does not know that he is partly responsible for her escape. However, that doesn’t change how he feels about her, or what his tendencies in a similar situation might be. This may have cleared his conscience, but the scruples that led him to the decision he made are still there.

    I don’t think anyone on this show is 100% goodie or baddie. As fans of this show, apparently we’re all comfortable with the morally grey.
