"To prepare for the confrontation ahead, Hiro follows respected businessman, husband and father Arthur Petrelli in the days before he "died" -- to discover what drove him to create rival company Pinehearst and strike at Angela. Later, a moment unfolds where Sylar, horrified and guilt-ridden, might have stopped his murderous pursuit of abilities -- that is, if H.R.G. and Elle had swayed from their monstrous assignment. Finally, under the wing of Company man Thompson, agent-in-training Meredith watches her new life go up in smoke, following the arrival of her hot-headed brother."
hot-headed brother, huh? does this mean [SPOILER - highlight to read]: Flint is Meredith's brother
"When Gotham is ashes, you have my permission to die." -BANE
Will [SPOILER - highlight to read]: Arthur take Hiro's powers?
I think that would spectacularly suck for the victim, but I think perhaps they are beginning to take the route of 'these guys don't need their powers to be heroes.' Otherwise Peter's out of the running, honestly.
Uncle [SPOILER - highlight to read]: Flint, eh? Oh geez... well, I guess there's a reason he doesn't have a last name, yet.
Just because your related doesn't necessarily mean you get the same genetic traits.
Especially when your mixing traits that are so very different. Ex. Fire and Flight. Plus Nathan's abilities apparently aren't natural so that could play a hand in how Claire developed healing too.
Either way I like the sometimes random and sometimes identical powers feel.
Btw Loved watching Peter taking charge like that. He really seems to be allot stronger than he'd been made out to look since the beginning of the show.
Perhaps Peter is the strong one in the family for more than just his powers. He just doesn't use it aggressively like the rest of them do. He seems more defensively strong and take more charge when others need his strength.
Lol that would be ironic, they gain his strength and he gains there's lol
So this whole things just gonna be an expansion of the six months ago episode form season 1?
None of them sparkle!
Sig by Scythe!
Anyone else think that their might be more to Nathan now? I'm excited because he's my favorite, and this new Petrelli based storyline is probably gonna bump him up from off the sidelines. I want to see him get involved with the fight.
Oh, just a thought on the Elle & Sylar relationship, because I've rewatched some of the scenes where they are together or reacting to one another...
In "Powerless" (2x11), Elle realizes that Sylar is in Mohinder's lab. All that comprises their interaction is Elle shouting "Sylar!" and striking at him with lightning, and him running the hell away because he can't fight back.
In "The Butterfly Effect" (3x02), when Sylar attacks Level 5, Elle accuses him of killing her father and he responds by saying he's killed a lot of people, and that she is as much to blame for that as anyone.
At the time, saying that makes no sense, but I can see how they tied in that connection. I remember people saying it was nonsense.
We also don't know anything about Sylar's activities between the murders of Brian Davis and Chandra Suresh, and the murders of Molly Walker's parents.
Good episode, I thought. They meshed it well with previous episodes.
[SPOILER - highlight to read]: New powers shown! Metal man and mind bullets!
And I wonder if Arthur has the Haitian's ability or if he used the Haitian to erase Angela's memories. Either way, somehow he got a hold of telepathy. I have to wonder if Angela knew his power was to steal other powers, rather than telepathy.

Ok episode.....i thought the Sylar parts were boring as all hell,some of the episode made me think a little...which was good, but as a whole...it was just a filler episode that had allot of unnecessary scenes and dialog which really did not feel it fit into past continuity
Arthur may be getting Hiro's power now. Talking about Hiro....hes a total IDIOT! He knows there is danger around. Instead of stopping time right away he would always looks around first and than he gets his ass kicked.
He is driving me nuts, this guy with the most powerful power in the show and hes a idiot.
Mind bullets? I thought it was just controlling air? And thats how sylar gets around without any foot steps being heard... and possibly how he climbed that tall building when Matt shot him...Do we need spoilers still?
