    I won't say too much about it yet, but I liked it. IMO, the upwards swing is continuing. This was a nice, more low-key episode that focused on the development of the characters and their relationships with each other. Oh yeah, and the insanely high amount of character stupidity we've seen throughout most of the season also seems to be decreasing, so they get definite points for that. :techman:

    One thing, though: I wish we knew for certain just what powers Sylar has. There were a couple of times I wondered, "How exactly did he do that, again?"

    They better never kill off Sylar. He is like 50% of the show. If they do it would be like Stargate without, well a Stargate.

    Honestly, I thought all the characters got development, even Denko. The shapeshifter was cool. I almost wish he could continue, but the way they handled it worked.

    its the first time Danko was a real character & not a cypher.

    so do you all think HRG will buy that really being Sylar in the bag?

    As someone posted upthread, it was a low key episode but a good one.

    When Sylar becomes a woman, is she anatomically correct and fully functional?

    That was actually decent, or was that my imagination? Didn't buy into Claire "imagining about her 'real' dad all those years." She didn't know she was adopted until she was 13 and Noah is your real dad, you little brat. They were well acted scenes, but this desire to bond sure came out of nowhere. I actually bought into Peter and Angela; they were the best scenes of the night and wow, what an improvement in Sylar and the hunters' characters. They didn't seem cardboard for once and--is it my imagination--or was Sylar appealing and kind of sexy in a homicidal way? :wtf: Quinto's too good for this show, and Zeljko has an upcoming stint on Big Love next season as Nikki's ex-husband.

    Drop the dead weight with Claire and there might be hope to salvage this puppy.

    RE: what Dorian said --
    Yeah, I thought Claire's desire to bond with Nathan did kind of come out of nowhere, especially considering how pissed she's been with him lately -- but I thought the scenes between the two of them were well-handled, and almost touching in places.

    Plus, it's better than listening to Claire whine constantly. :bolian:

    Well....Nathan's been cute this season. :cool: He's got 2 sons to bond with if he needs to bond. Wish he'd remember them. It makes him seem like a neglectful asshole that they're never mentioned.

    Clare needs to go away. Preferably last week. Add "can hold 22 shots" to her list of overwhelming and utterly useless abilities. :rolleyes: Noah's your real dad, you brat. Claire bugs me. Can you tell?
