Heroes music picks up as Gretchen and Claire laugh in their dorm room. Ando and Hiro talk in Hiro's hospital room. Janice Parkman plays with Matty. Then her doorbell rings, and she answers it. It's Sylar, who introduces himself as Gabriel, a friend of Matt's from the 12th Precinct. He asks if there's any way she could tell him where Matt is since it's really important. She says sure, but then, "I'm sorry. Have we met?" Have they met or is she just remembering the Sylon sex? Also, I think the music here is ominous, but since we know he wants to have his powers removed, is it really scary that he'd go looking for Matt? I mean, who better to remove your powers than the brain-controlling guy?
Next week: Sylar tells Parkman to purge him of his powers, or he'll use them, use them all. Claire tells Lydia (through touch, for some reason; if it were to keep it quiet, it doesn't work since Lydia says it all out loud) that her father's coming to kill Samuel and it's not going to end well. HRG's the carnival sniper, then Replicating Eli hits HRG in the face with a shovel. It's probably naïveté, but I keep holding out hope this show will get good again. But when the previews aren't even exciting, it's a sure bet the episode won't be.
DeAnn, a writer and editor in Portland, Oregon, knows people do stupid things in college, but making out with Sylar? Really? You can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
