Samuel and Lydia the Tattooed Lady are discussing Sylar. Samuel can't believe how he doesn't live up to the hype he's heard about the guy for years. Samuel wonders what happened to him to make him so beaten and afraid. Lydia's not sure, but she thinks there are two sides at war within him. At this, Samuel jumps up and goes to Sylar's trailer, where he looks in and sees him asleep. He knocks on the trailer's giant sliding glass door (which is very cool; who wouldn't want a trailer with a giant door like that, though it might be impractical for hauling purposes -- which isn't a problem for these guys, since I doubt they ever travel by driving). Sylar comes out and Samuel greets him by name and asks how he slept. Sylar asks why Samuel would call him Sylar, and Samuel says it's his name. Sylar says the police told him his name was Gabriel, which makes Samuel even more puzzled that Sylar doesn't even know his name. He tells Sylar he thinks a great damage has been done to him and that he came to the carnival to heal. Or maybe he came to the carnival because it appeared to him right as he was running from police with dogs and guns? I don't know. Just another theory. Samuel asks Sylar to spend the day among the carnies and, with time, his memories will return. He asks Sylar what he'd like to be called, and Sylar says, "Call me Nathan." Mysterious music plays, which is silly since this IS NOT A MYSTERY TO VIEWERS. I think the writers need to realize that just because a character's memory has been erased doesn't mean ours has. We know what's going on, so cool it with the build-up. Opening title card.
