Was I supposed to care that Sylar is good or evil or somewhere in-between????
While watching the show I'm surprised that Sylar didn't say "Live long and Prosper" or "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few". yeah I know shameless Star Trek plug, but I laughed after [SPOILER - highlight to read]: Danko put a little knife in the back of Sylar's head and after Sylar got back up and said "that hurt"
What is the explaination for that? Is there anyway to kill this dude?
I'm with you about the caring if Sylar is good or evil. I'd lost trying to figure that out a long time ago. I applaud them for using his new shifting powers to try and tell an identity crisis arc, but at the same time, it seemed kind of repetitive. We've seen Sylar search for "who he is" with his dad...only to figure out that it's his mom who helps ground him in knowing his identity? Seem like a few steps back to me.

i am starting to get labled as a heroes hater....as me and my friends watch the show...but is it because i love the show so much...and know it has such potential.....i am not even sure...but this episode failed...big time....this is part 1 for the season ending?...and it felt wrong on so many levels. I was not happy with the "13 hrs ago" lead up to the press conference...nor the identity crisis....Matts situation was somewhat interesting....i think his acting is top notch..and carried the scenes well.....i actually understand the Sylar incident.....he did mention how small the spot actually is....and Danko only used the knife on the shapeshifter..not the real Sylar....but as a whole this episode just did not do it for me...Michas role seemes out of place and rushed..hiro and ando...i dont even know what to say..and how many characters are going to keep giving us the emotional turn around...over and over....but in the end ...i still watch the show and my friends still hear me grunt with displeasure...although my friend agreed with me about last nights episode.
Boring ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ...and same old is the character this way or that way. Is Sylar good or bad same old stuff again. Hiro and Ando, just meh....same old again. Matt was ok, over all a big snore and this EP dropped the ball.
It ws borring. Since when did they turn Sylar into Golum? lol When Danko said that he found Rebel and Sylar saw it was Micah. I was like you better not capture him and kill him off in the next episode. I like Micah alot. I hope to see his character in the future.
While Sylar's situation seemed lackluster as a lead-up to the finale, I was pleased with the episode overall. I'm wondering what's going down with Hiro having a massive nosebleed from using his power, Matt nevers fails to impress me.
I thought for sure that Nathan was a dead man at the end, as I've become expectant. And I'm glad Micah got away.
Sylar's switching back and forth between himself and his mother reminded me strongly of Hitchcock's Psycho, having issues with his mother and turning into her to talk to himself... eerie.
I actually like how the used his mother to explain his Identity Crisis, cuz it finally put to rest that awful "search for my past" arc, and we went back to season one for explanation. It was nice to see Ellen Greene back (wonder who else from Pushing Daisies it's going to make a cameo )
I like the Psycho/Gollum approach to Sylar's inner demons, it was nice, and we also got an explanation as to how Sylar can turn into somebody without touching them.
One thing I really hate though: why did the clothes changed with Sylar?
We've seen in past episodes how he remains with the same clothes regardless of who he shapes into, why change it now. It's so random, and... retarded.
I understand it helps keep the mystery of her mother talking to him, but, it's was a really long stretch.
I didn't like Matt though, some more flip-flopping: "I'm going to escape with you to protect you"
"I have to stay behind and fight to protect you"...
Hiro and Ando were meh, but I found some of it enjoyable, though Hiro's whining it's beyond annoying... he got that nosebleed coming
Micah was ok, but I found it unlikely they will find him the way they did... I mean, how did he not see then coming...
I'm also tired of good-Sylar... hopefully he helps everyone just to prove his powerful enough...
Loved Danko's face at the end... really don't know what to make out of it, maybe Danko didn't hit the sweet spot, maybe Sylar's molecule were rearranged or something... dunno
At the time Sylar got stabbed, he was him, not someone else... though the recent shapeshift may have something to do with it
Overall I was quite impressed with this episode. I though they were gonna pull another "Truth and Consequence" on us (they still did, with the preview, mostly showing what happens in the season finale, instead of the actual episode).. but this episode turn out to be very enjoyable. I liked it even more then the last episode
"When Gotham is ashes, you have my permission to die." -BANE
He just has to find some of their D.N.A. to use. Makes prefect sense to me.
Thou I was also greatly annoyed with the cloths changing as well. I mean it made since back when Candice did it and Sylar had her power in the alternate future but with this shape shifting its just stupid and poor production on the shows editing.
My guess as to Hiro's nose bleed is its a response from Mattie's turning on an ability he'd lost. Like continuesly forcing your body to do something it shouldn't be doing.
None of them sparkle!

I think Hiros problem started with keeping another person out of his time loop...first the baby then....it was the first time he had ando out of the time stop that he had a headache...and the second time his nose started to bleed....that was my impression....just my 2 cents
