It was the answer to the problem of [SPOILER - highlight to read]: Peter having over a dozen powers and being the most 'special' character on the show- taking it all away. They were having to make Peter not know what to do with all his power... and now [SPOILER - highlight to read]: he doesn't have to worry about it.
Sylar was feared as a villain because of what he could do; kill you and take your power, violating you in a highly personal way and ending your life.
Linderman was feared because he was a mob leader and had a great deal of charisma behind him. I liked that Linderman did not have some lethal ability; the irony of the man who could heal being the one who wanted to blow up New York.
Adam was feared not because of what he could do, more because of what he wanted to do. Unleashing the virus and wiping out the world population is horrific and slightly psychopathic. Same thoughts with Adam; the man who can't die is the one who wants everyone else to.
Arthur... yeah, it's his power... though it makes sense as it [SPOILER - highlight to read]: connects to Peter quite well; Peter is (or was) v2.0 of Arthur's ability. Same with Sylar, being able to figure out how to take abilities. Nathan being the odd one out, of course, but now we know he wasn't born with it...

I found some things that made me laugh (Hiro & Ando), but i find so much that just makes me want to stop watching....i really dont care for much of this show anymore. The formula for this show is not working anymore for me, trying to keep track of all the characters is one thing...then we have such butchering of the characters....that i find myself just not caring to even try and keep track.....anyway.......ok episode that just leaves me with no excitement for whats to come.
Well I bet I know where Peter's scar comes from now. Thou, I'm kinda hoping he somehow avoids getting it now that the timeline's changed. Never like it on him.
I actually loved this episode, by far the best and the only one I've truly enjoyed since the season premiere. Still some stupid things I don't give a rats ass about and annoyed by giving everyone abilities!
But while Aurthur having an ability as well still annoys me, I did love how they worked it in this episode. Having him take away Peter's powers I hated but I'm going to love watching him still take them on now powerless and then try and get them back somehow. Maybe the formula but that'd probably mean he'd have to regain all his others and that would annoy me much more so. I am hoping thou, now that he's human maybe he can get with Bennett and learn how to be a real hero powerless, only to regain his abilities and be all the more badass like in the future!
Really looking forward to next weeks Peter vs Aurthur story and seeing how Peter deals with his father. He's always been the other son, the one daddy knew wasn't Nathan! Now that he's finally made his way and proved he's much more than Nathan and his father manages to take that away form him too.
Could someone tell me thou, why they had to kill Adam? That really sucked ass and I don't see why that should've killed him. I mean if he just stole his power and not his life force or whatever then it should have just made him normal human. He would've finally been vulnerable and started aging normally but he shouldn't have rapid aged or whatever to dust like that IMO.
If it negated the healing his power had done to his body keeping him young then it should have negated the injuries healed on Peter when his was stolen as well. Correct?
Unless Claire's healing factor is different from Adam's. Which is entirely possible, but they've never mentioned it being different.
None of them sparkle!

I haven't finished watching the episode yet ( I saw up until Sylar vs Peter fight) will finish it tonight... but I must say I am impressed with the episode so far, I think it's been a fun episode, Doyle is such a good villain, enjoying the "roulette" game he maks them play, and it was a good way to catch him the way Claire did, Hiro and Ando are still idiots, but I found their travel to Africa chuckle worthy... Adam.. I just knew it, I love the way he told Knox he didn't get it... and that was the last of him... shame, interesting character, but unable to do anything other than use his wit, which didn't help him in the end
... Mohinder's still a douchebag but the way Daphne told him he was as bad as the rest was funny, and well deserved
... still haven't watch how it ends, but so far it's been a good episode, probably the best this season... though not great

I guess its also ironic how the man whose power is to take away others powers and make them his own is trying to give everyone else powers. but i don't think sylar is Arthur v2.0. Arthur's ability takes significantly less effort than Sylar and is far more effective.
