That was pretty boring, a lot of setup... Sylar still not interesting and not dead. Oh how much better even season 2 was in retrospect.
I agree.

I think I've watched my last ep. of this show.

I'm going back to "24".

When did Sylar gain the ability to morph his clothing? When the show decided to take another shortcut?
It wouldn't have been so bad if they clearly didn't show us before that Norman Bates couldn't morph the clothes. It also flies directly in the face of how they're showing/telling us his power works, but whatever, it's a sloppy change but it moves the story along.

I like to complete things, and I'm so close that I'll ride this season out. But I can't see coming back next season.

Well, I'm not sure if everyone got the same preview of next weeks episode as I did (Watched it on Global TV in Vancouver) but one line/scene that they showed might have given away the whole big ending on the season (ie, who dies).

It involves some speculation, guesswork, etc... but if anyone wants to know what the scene was and what I think will happen please look at the spoiler below.

I stopped watching 24 during season 6 and I'm really glad I did. Season 6 was horrible like season 4.

I heard that 24 recently brought back a popular main character to life after that character had been dead for nearly two seasons. It seems death is utterly pointless on that show.

Too bad, this season is really gotten the show back on track.

If you watched the show and heard the how & why, you might see the character did avoid death. Besides, how is death pointless if everybody else who has died over the last 7 seasons has stayed dead but one?

I havent seen this version of the promo but some of the other slight spoilers Ive read on other boards match up with your theory. I hope its true b/c:

Why was Micah surprised to see Sylar was a shapeshifter when he witnessed the Sylar-as-mom moment, but the night before he saw Sylar shapeshifted to pretend to be Micah?

I just found out on another forum the guy Sylar killed tonight was Clint Howard. I thought he looked familiar.
Hard to miss when he had his name credit superimposed right over his face at one point.

Because he was watching an unbalanced invincible serial killer have an argument with himself in the form of his dead mother he killed?

Average. I was hoping that they could capitalize on last week's episode showing the Heroes starting to organize. But noooooooooooo. We get more Sylar mommy drama (that whole shape shifting conversation thing got old real fast) and, oh look, in pre-Fuller fashion, they all get caught.......again!. One step forward, two steps back!

The only enjoyment I got out of this episode was when during the stupid Sylar and his Mom scene I started singing a rousing rendition of "Suddenly, Sylar" in my head.

I loved this episode and give it one of the few Excellents of the season.

I especially liked the whole Sylar/Mommy Psycho thing going on. Pretty creepy...

The Sylar/Mom stuff was interesting... Although it breaks the established rules of that ability. But who's paying attention to details?

Claire's hairpiece is looking more and more ridiculous for every episode...

I found this episode pretty boring. I'm so tired of Sylar especially.
