This was a bit of a slow episode, but still entertained the hell out of me. I will do a breakdown of the characters, what they did and then let you know how I think the final two episodes will pan out.
Sylar/Hiro & Ando
He is at Isaac’s place painting the future and he thinks he will be the one to blow up NYC. He calls Suresh and tells him that he does not want to hurt innocent people, that he did not mind hurting others with abilities because it was natural selection, but that he did not want to be a mass murderer. Interesting, we see that Sylar is a bit of a complex character, not just a monster.
Hiro and Ando come to the apartment to talk with Isaac, but find him dead. When Sylar comes out of the bathroom, they hide, but he can hear them. When he comes at them, Hiro teleports them. They begin to follow Sylar, and he goes to his mother’s house.
She is a weird a woman, who thinks that Sylar is special and that he should be something important, not just a watch repairman. Sylar then tells her that he is special, and takes the hose from the sink and shoots it in the air, freezing the water into snow, making the apartment look like a snow globe, which his mother loves. He loses control and the globes begin to fly into the air and break, the glass cuts his mother. She runs away from him. As he tries to apologize through the door, Ando tells Hiro he must kill him now.
Hiro says that he cannot, not while he is asking forgiveness. Ando says that future-Hiro would have no problem doing it, but Hiro says that his future self killed too easily, that maybe he should have thought about it more. Then Ando tells Hiro that Sylar will kill Ando.
At this time, Sylar is telling her how he may kill everyone in the city, and that he could be president, she comes out and tells him to leave and then tries to stab him with a pair of scissors. He stops her, but accidently stabs her in the process and she dies. Hiro stops time and comes in to kill Sylar, but he cannot do it. Sylar tells Hiro to kill him, but when he sees that Hiro cannot do it, he calls him a coward and grabs the sword, freezing the blade, which allows him to break it. Ando runs in, and Hiro grabs him and they teleport away.
Claire is going to leave for Paris, but Peter wants her to stay, he believes that he needs her to stop the bomb. He shows her a picture he painted and she recognizes Teddy. They tell Nathan, who says he will call the FBI, but instead talks to Linderman, and later we see Nathan talking with Thompson, who says that the bomb must go off and that Nathan will win the election.
Peter gives Claire a gun and says that when the time comes, if he goes out of control she must put a bullet in the spot where the glass was at. She is the only one who can get close enough to stop him. At the end of the episode, Claire and Peter are outside the building where it happens, and Teddy, Matt, and Mr.B come walking up. Claire and her dad hug, and then Peter’s hands start to glow orange, he freaks out and then starts to control it.
Nathan’s mom tells him that she knows all about him and that she and Linderman, and some others have worked very hard for this moment to happen and that only a strong person like Nathan can heal the world after the bomb goes off.
They are starting to tie in, and it makes me happy. Jessica and DL decide to go after Micah, and they break into Linderman’s Vegas pad, but no one is there. They realize that Linderman has information on all three of them and their powers. Jessica thinks they have Micah in NYC.
In NYC, Micah and Candice are chillin’ and he gets a bit sassy about how he does not like Linderman and wants to go home. Candice (as Nikki, wow, it’s great when someone impersonates a split personality) says that they need to help Linderman. Once she gets a shower, Micah makes a run for it, but everytime he goes out the door, he comes back into the room.
Candice comes out and says that she can make Micah see anything she wants him to see (I guess that settles the debate). She says that she likes him, but that he better help Linderman or she will have to hurt him. I wonder, and maybe Gideon will have thought about this, if Micah could somehow use his powers to talk to the security camera’s and find out what is real and what is not real? Or do her powers manipulate reality? Hmm, fun stuff to think about.
After Suresh talks to Sylar, he calls Thompson. They meet and Suresh says he wants them to work for him in catching Sylar. He wants to know everything they know. Thompson agrees and introduces him to Molly Walker (the little girl that Parkman saved). She has the power to stop Sylar, but she has a disease that prevents her from using her power.
Thompson says that a little girl in India had the same disease, Mohinder’s sister. After some time with Molly, Mohinder realizes where the cure is and that he himself was the cure to saving his sister. He had the healthy antibodies she needed, but he was born too late. He saves Molly, and also gains a little friend, it was very cute.
We have seen the future, and it does not look good. So this is what I think will happen, Nathan will help stop “the bomb.” He will forsake becoming the president and all that. New York City will be saved. Nathan may die saving the city, who knows.
I do not believe Sylar will die, I think he gets away. I think that season two will be Peter, Claire, Mohinder and Molly, tracking other heroes and fighting Sylar before he grows too powerful.
Okay, I know it’s not much of a theory, but whatever. Let’s hear some of yours then.
