Establishing shot of an eclipse. Wait, what? Why don't they tell us about these things?
So despite the fact that we left off with Bennet ready to splatter Sylar's brains all over like an overripe grapefruit, Elle and Sylar are now on the floor, having just Done It. So did Bennet just decide that he needed a cup of coffee at that moment? Or is he just into Villain porn? If it is the latter, he was probably disappointed, since they're chastely covered up by some blankets, like, nice of Vortex Guy to leave them lying around. This show. If it were supposed to be a comedy it would be a whole lot better. Elle wonders if their powers going away is a permanent thing, like, OBVIOUSLY not, and seems happy about the prospect even though she was freaking out about the possibility before. Then again, she likely just got devirginized, which certainly can affect your outlook on things. Sylar says it would be what she wants -- a chance for them to reinvent themselves without powers. The only way to get through the writing in this subplot is to adopt a Guy-Pearce-in-Memento-like memory capacity, so that's what I'm going to have to do. Sure, that's exactly what she wants! If only I could remember her name! Blonde Girl says that whatever they were just talking about is "scary," and Guy With Eyebrows agrees and adds dreamily that it's "unexpected." Before the schmoop can continue, though, we see a red dot on Guy With Eyebrows's forehead, and he and Blonde Girl roll to the side just in time to avoid getting shot. The two of them scramble for their clothes, which I guess means they were just fooling around, even though I wouldn't have guessed that's Guy With Eyebrows's thing. Blonde Girl is pretty cute, though. The two of them manage to get their clothes on before a man with the cutest Horn-Rimmed Glasses busts in the front door. Less cute is the enormous gun he's wielding, which he then puts down for some reason in favor of drawing a handgun, so I wonder what the point was of bringing in the massive weaponry, especially since it might be used against him. What was I talking about? Oh, that HRG (seems like a good nickname) stupidly cocks his gun, which gives away his location so that Blonde Girl can shoot at him with another handgun. Blonde Girl and Guy With Eyebrows then try to run out the front door, but they do so without any covering fire, so it's not a big surprise when Blonde Girl ends up taking one in the leg. Oh, dear. I mean, I get the vague feeling that I'm supposed to be rooting against her, but she's just so darned cute!
