So does anyone else think that Peter will ultimately be the one to face off with Sylar? Last night he was able to use Sylar powers...what is he capable of?

yeh peter can copy someones power once he c ame incontact with them or their users...but he has to remember how he felt at that moment only then he can use that power. I loved the new ep of heroes, a lots happened...am curious what's gonna happen next. like someone said here earlier...it's great not to know where the writers are taking this story, I agree. All I care is that its great and its totally unpredecitable (sofar). peter has def a cool power...and abt hiro being comical, I agree but I think its gonna change...because when his future hiro appeared to peter he didn't look like this comical hiro so I think they'll make his charac more serious soon. ~MSD~

Hi Ms1981d, I believe you're right about Hiro eventually emerging as a force to be reckoned with. If and when his character does undergo a transformation, I hope that the writers don't strip him of the qualities that currently make him so endearing. One of the things that I find remarkable about the show is: After this many episodes, it's still not clear exactly who is the primary protagonist. Is it Syler? Or, is it the cheerleaders father, with his misguided attempts to affect the outcome of the paradigm shift? Or, have the villains only started to be revealed? Hmmm, makes ya' wonder! Tune in next week to the same bat-station!

I also agree about Hiro. I just love that they keep him going in and out of story lines in English and Japanese. If you're like me you're usually doing something else while watching tv and with this show I have to give pause to whatever else I may be doing. I enjoy it. Have you seen the trailers for next week? Seems as if they'll be explaining a little more into Claire's back story and also into her dad's.

Excellent point about the Japanese subtitles forcing us to be 'really present', instead of in and out while the show airs. It seems that we have three "Heroes" fans here. Would you consider leaving this thread open Sunnyckell, so that we can continue this dialogue? I know that I'd love to chat after we find out more about Claire and her father. As for "Jericho": it is on Wednesday 8pm (I think it's 8pm). It's set in small town Jericho, Kansas -- in the near future. A series of bombs destroy most of America's major cities. The show is about what a town of survivors (and refugees) does after the fact with no outside communication, or resources. Great character development, excellent cast, and it's as thought-provoking as it is entertaining.

Good morning Sunnckell & Ms1981d, Last night was interesting. I was glad that we started to get some background history. Although it was 'out of form' to only see a few of the characters. Of course, last night's episode was full enough with just those few. So where do you think "The Haitian" is taking Claire? And, do you think he knows where others are? Like the "Invisible Man", who it seems he grew up with? I wonder too, if "The Haitian" knows where others are are, if the writers are planning to have Suresh (with Sylar) in toe, hook up with the "Haitian". Hmmm, do you think "The Haitian" can make "Sylar" forget that he obsessed with collecting all the powers out there? Could Sylar become one of the good guys? What did you think about last night? Toodles for now.

I'm not sure where the Haitian is taking Claire. I have no idea. Yes, I think he knows a lot more than we realize. Especially if most people think he can't talk - not a big threat if people think you can't spill the beans. I don't know about Sylar being able to have his mind wiped. But, what about Peter and the Haitian? Can Peter do that too? I don't know if I see Sylar turning...good question though. You know what I wonder? How much of Bennett's mind did the Haitian erase? Oh, and what about Hiro's dad...that blew my mind!

Good morning Sunnyckell, Do you remember the episode a while back where Hiro and his sidekick ran into his father in Vegas? When Hiro first went to steal the sword from Linderman? That was our clue that Hiro's father was involved. But, I was shocked to see (little) Hiro on the rooftop when Claire's mothers home burned. Wouldn't Hiro having a power indicate that he was inclined to inherit it from his father? I think you're right about Peter being able to mimick "The Haitian's" power. So maybe the two of them together can clear Sylar's mind, eh?

Hello ladyluna! Okay. I thought Hiro's dad was connected in some way at the time of that episode when he tries to persuade Hiro home. However, is that even his real father? DOES he have powers like Hiro, or is he just a surrogate father like Bennett? I still don't know what I think about the whole Sylar thing yet.

Hi Sunnyckell, Usually when I watch a movie, or show I have the ending figured out long before it gets good. One of the things that I really love about "Heroes" is that I don't have a clue where they're going with this, and I love that. Obviously it's heading for a showdown. Yet, I'm finding it wonderful that I don't care when, or how, or between whom. I'm just enjoying being 'taken on the ride'. The character development is fabulous (Hiro is a great comedic presence in the story line), the intrigue and pace are great, and the story line is ... well, it's a mystery to me. Geesh, I feel like a kid again watching the old Batman and Superman shows. It's all so 'hokey' and larger than life, and really, really fun! I suspect you're right about Peter and Sylar ... but at this point, I'm perfectly happy to see three or four (or more) seasons pass before the showdown occurs.

I have to agree with you about figuring out the endings to shows long before it gets good. I think that's probably the majority of the reason I posted this question. I was thinking last night that I can see this show go on for quite sometime and I hope it does. A lot of my friends don't like the show, they say it is too hard to follow. I disagree. My husband and I look forward to watching it and apparently so do you. Thanks for your comment.

Yes Sunnckell, I like it very much. In fact, it's one of two new shows that my husband and I look forward to watching. The other is "Jericho". Have you seen it yet? Other than news and the history channel, we don't watch very much t.v. Before this current season, there wasn't much on that we liked, especially on the major network stations. It seems that the programming directors of the networks finally figured out that the slew of reality shows were not generating much viewing, with the exception of "Survivor" and "American Idol". I have yet to see either, but the airwaves were inundated with reality shows for a while there. It's nice to have some well-written entertainment again!

No, we've never seen Jericho. What type of show is it? We're big History Channel watchers as well. I agree with your theory on reality programming, but I don't know if I see too much of a decline to be honest. Check other networks - they are running rampant.
