    I felt like I was watching a What If? comic, I swear.

    It's interesting to see some of the parallels between the Heroes Universe and the comic book (Marvel in particular) universe.

    I thought it was a fantastic episode - I can't wait until the finale.. and then I won't be able to wait until the next season.

    Best. Episode. Of. Heroes. Ever.

    I hope I'm not the only one still watching this!


    I'm a couple of episodes behind, but I'm getting there.

    Improving in leaps and bounds every week.

    Also,

    This is my favorite show since Lost. It brings back memories of when I was into comic books as a child yet makes it more real world than super heroish.

    Still can't figure out why at the end Petrelli didn't just freeze time and toast Silar though. Or use Hatian power on him.

    Maybe Sylar has those powers as well, and therefore is immune to them?

    I think that Sylar needs to kill people and mess around with their brains to gain their powers... so he couldn't have Hiro or the Haitian's powers since they were alive up until just before the confrontation with Peter. He DOES however, have Claire's power, so killing him may or may not be possible anymore.

    That episode was awesome. But Brian278 is right. There are some rather glaring inconsistencies in the show, but I choose to just ignore and let the good times role.

    If Claire's power meant you couldn't be killed, then Silar couldn't have killed Claire and got her power in the first place.

    It will be interesting to see what the chain of events are that might lead Peter to blow up NYC, and what Silar's role is in those events.

    Well she can't be killed by like stabbing, breaking, crushing, burning, freezing, or whatever, but if Sylar eats the part of her brain that holds her mutation, should we expect to see a full size claire burst out of Sylar's chest like an alien? That would rule.
