You mean the almost Mr. Troi is going to be on Heroes? Man, I have got to get caught up with this show.
Make sure you're on something when you do, to numb the pain after the first season. It gets bad. Really really awful.

Is Quinto still in it? Does he appear shirtless at least once after the 3rd ep of Season 2? Then I'll be good.
Once, in a scene with Kristen Bell. That I can recall, it's his only shirtless scene in the series.

And I'm not commenting on the actor's orientation, but boy did he look uncomfortable being nude next to a female. That's all I'm saying.

I think I read somewhere that he is actually gay. Not that there's anything wrong with that

No he didn't. Don't denigrate his acting skills like that.

Re: Sylar gets some SERIOUS competition (Heroes' casting spoiler)

This is good news. My hope is that they'll play a Jekyll and Hyde thing with Nathan-Sylar for most, if not all, of the season and focus on giving the new villain time to shine. Then they can return Sylar to form next season. They have an interesting set-up going and they really shouldn't blow this too early. Give it time to develop instead.

Just sayin' he's talented enough that he could play that scene convincingly regardless of his real-life inclinations towards Ms. Bell, whatever their origin might be.

His scenes with Hayden Panetierre are convincing enough to creep me the hell out, after all.

Zachary Quinto and Kristen Bell are friends in real life. I imagine it was awkward doing the making out while half naked scenes. But I certainly didn't notice anything off about those scenes. I guess that's why they are actors.

You mean, you read that people are actually speculating that he's gay because they actually don't know a thing about his personal life, but they still state is as a fact, as if they are not actually talking out of their asses?

He was shirtless in season 2, right before and while making out with Maya. Then again in season 3 in the cell with Elle, and then in the makeout scenes

And I am sorry, but I think you're just seeing something that wasn't there, because of your preconceptions/wishful thinking... To anyone else, that scene looked HOT and Sylar sure did not look "uncomfortable" with Elle.... Or, if that's uncomfortable, I'd love to be that uncomfortable with someone.

Oh, and he did not lie next to KB/Elle... he was lying under her.

Way back in the day, I guess.

This is the sort of thing I was hoping to hear. Most Heroes watchers I know are convinced that Sylar is going to obliterate Nathan's personality within the first six episodes. I'd prefer an ongoing Jekyll-Hyde thing, so a) we aren't relying on Sylar so much, and b) Quinto can get time off for more movies.
Wow, it's really hard to imagine that guy clean cut. He's good at playing a bad guy, it will be good to see him on Heroes. Just so long as he doesn't do that annoying 'stick his tongue out crooked when he's thinking' thing.

Can I have an "Amen"?

Honestly, Sylar's gotten the hottest love scenes in the series thus far (Maya and Elle). Though there's not much competition. I mean, Peter/Simone and Peter/Caitlin? Non-entities. Matt/Daphne? Cute (and Daphne did have an extremely touching death scene), but Grunny isn't exactly someone I'd describe as "smoldering".

And I can't help it if I'm more than a little excited about where Sylar/Claire is going. I'm disturbed enough to enjoy a plot like that (let's face it: the hottest scene in the series so far was "Eat your brain? Claire, that's disgusting." as he's leaning over her exposed brain in a low voice.) Also note his creepy behavior in Claire's bedroom back in season 1 (he runs his hand along the bed right before he heads downstairs with Mr. Muggles).

Yeah, the resident creep has been intrigued with the idea of Claire and spending immortality with her for a while. It's just too juicy to stop a plotline like that. Throw in the fact that he now has daddy Nathan's memories for extra wiggins. It's fun exactly because of how horribly wrong it is and how he's going after the person who hates him the most!

I'm actually convinced that the reason Claire got tossed out the door in the finale was because she rejected him (from the behind shot, he's leaning into her). He was certainly hinting in that direction that whole scene.

Oh, I'm quite intrigued for season 4.

And yeah, I'm one of those people who is definitely on the bandwagon of there not being a show left if you lose Sylar. And it would be awesome if there was an ultimate twist like with Micah's "You could save us all." I'm a sucker for redemption stories, so if they want to continue in that direction, I'm all for it. Ultimate evil is also fine. But I think after meeting what he was becoming (his real father), his priorities have become finding someone to share Claire's eternity with. And he wants someone he can never harm or kill, even if he wanted to.

He's totally pathetic, but doesn't want to be pathetic. There's a part of him that wants acceptance/love (hence the parental/mommy issues), but of course, he's practically irredeemable because of his "gift" (the hunger). He's forced to kill because of his gift, yet even though he can now get abilities without killing, he feels like he's losing a part of himself. And with the fact that he's losing himself in the shape-shifting, he tries to retain what made him "Sylar". And with the Nathan-brainwash, he's going to be even more desperate to be himself.

People bitch about Heroes after season 1, but I actually liked season 3 just as much as season 1. Really. Some of my favorite moments in the series are without a doubt in season 3. Sylar talking to himself back and forth as him and his mother was amazing. As was the whole stealing of Claire's power. And the "Runaway" and "We Gotta Get Out of This Place" moments with Danko. Oh, and Noah/Sylar's team-up at the bank and saving Claire from being sucked into the portal. And dare I say it: Daddy Sylar in the future. Waffles!

And I just love Sylar/Noah scenes and their brief partnership. Their dynamic is one of my favorite things in the series. Angela's playing with Sylar was almost as epic. And more Gabriel Gray scenes are always up my alley.

Then again, I wouldn't cry if the cast was just whittled down to the Bennets, Petrellis and Sylar.

I did like Danko, though. He was way over his head with trying to use Sylar, but he was still an effective creep. And Micah redeemed himself as Rebel from all the boring Niki/Jessica/D.L. stuff (once again, Sylar brings out the interesting in the other characters). Hiro/Ando need to just go away already (medieval Japan was the worst arc of the show). I loved Mohinder when he was trying to avenge his father's death (once again, Sylar brings out the best in the character), but him with superpowers was deeply underwhelming. Mohinder, Matt and Molly was cute, however.
