DISCLAIMER: THIS IS A LONG POST AND THERE WILL BE SPOILERS. IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THE EPISODE AND DONT WANT IT RUINED DO NOT READ THIS POST.
FOR THIS POST I AM GOING TO TRY SOMETHING A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT. USUALLY I JUST GO FROM TOP TO BOTTOM OF WHAT HAPPENED IN THE EPISODE. OFTEN TIMES THOSE POSTS GO BACK AND FORTH, SO IM GOING TO INSTEAD GIVE YOU EACH CHARACTERS HAPPENINGS DURING THE EPISODE INDIVIDUALLY.
this episode is set 18 hours before last episode’s events.
sylar is going through an internal struggle. he must maintain his identity as one of the agents under the hunters regime, as everyone thinks sylar is dead but he has a desire to be the powerful sylar that people are used to. he craves the power. rebel is still trying to help those with powers and sends a message to a man named tom to leave his apartment. before tom can leave sylar shows up and takes the mans power, which it looks like was the ability to destroy things with the pointing of a finger. he leaves the words i am sylar in blood on the wall of the victims home.
during the raid on rebels hideout sylar runs into rebel who tells him he could switch sides and help those on the run. he helps rebel escape the grips of the hunter and takes him to his home. rebel oversees sylar shape shifting between himself and his mother (not his biological mother). rebel continues to tell sylar to switch sides and sylar swiftly kicks rebel out of his home. he says the next time he sees him, he will kill him, but i don’t believe that.
sylar transforms into nathan and holds a nationl press conference. during the press conference he calls out the president. if sylar can come into contact with the president and he is able to transform into him there is no telling what he can do.
the hunter gets a tip as to where rebel is hiding. he takes his team, including an undercover sylar to the building. as they enter the building we see rebel packing his bag to make his escape. as he is about to leave sylar enters the room. the hunter chases down rebel and one of the agents shoots him. he falls into the water, but then we see rebel overlooking the whole showdown. must have been sylar posing as rebel.
in the final scene of the episode, we see the hunter sticking a knife into the back of the head of sylar. this should presumably kill him, however he gets up and pulls the knife out of his head. the hunter looks at him in shock.
HIRO & ANDO:
hiro and ando go to isaac mendez’ house to set a trap for the agents. as they get there the agents storm in but just in time hiro freezes everything. only this time, ando didn’t freeze. maybe his powers are evolving. for some reason hiro resumes time and lets ando get hit with some form of dart then freezes time again.
the two are able to escape from the guards with one of gps units.
they arrive at building 26, but when hiro tries to freeze time he cant and gets a severe headache and a nose bleed.
parkman was asked by hiro and ando to go destroy building 26, but he wants nothing to do with that plan. now that he is with his baby he plans on returning the child home safely and seeing to it that the boy will always have a loving father. he arrives at his baby mama’s house to discover agents are bugging her residence.
he finds his old badge and has an epiphany. he needs to go back and fight with hiro to get his life back with his wife janice and their son. before they are able to leave agents storm into the home.
ANGELA, CLAIRE, NATHAN, PETER & NOAH:
still in coyote sans, they group sees the press conference on tv and fear that the president will soon meet with the fake nathan allowing sylar to take his identity. fearing this, nathan takes off to try to stop sylar. the real nathan arrives at his office in washington dc to find the fake nathan, who quickly transforms back into sylar. after a brief conversation nathan is shot in the back with tranquilizers by the hunter.
after writing this, i realize i absolutely do not like this format. i apologize for this, and next week the review will be back to normal. tried to make a change and it didn’t work. cant win the game if you don’t play.
