    this week was...solidly grounded.

    high on action? not exactly. but it doesn't matter. this really is like the character-based season 1 focus. they're putting character development before plot. this turned out to be a down-to-earth sort of story, very firm. and while i could argue that it didn't really advance the story much, it certainly did set the stage for the last 2 episodes.

    the twist at the end was good, but i thought sylar would have to touch nathan first. i guess he might've, earlier, but still, good. so he doesn't need to touch someone to turn into them? all previous transformations seem to indicate that he does need contact, and i can't really remember when he touched nathan.

    next episode's called 'i am sylar'. haha. bit odd, but i think we can guess what it's about...

    I don't recall the shape-shifter touching Sylar before morphing into his form. So the answer is no, he doesn't need physical contact?

    Edit: I think Nathan and Sylar met while working for Mr. Petrelli. My memory on volume 3 has almost faded, bad season I guess.

    etufo: HS is most likely going to die sooner or later. Who will kill the cool character killer?

    Popo: well, obviously going by that logic, HS will have to kill himself...

    The shapeshifter was in the club with Sylar, there was tons of opportunity to make contact. As for Sylar taking Nathan's look, I'm assuming it might have to do with his other ability of learning the history of a person by touching an object. That ability he took from the girl that was fed to him by Angela in the beginning of season 3.

    Good Times

    not necessarily, it could have to do with his ability to understand the powers. he always was able to learn how to use the powers faster than the people who originally had it.

    ^Yeah, he probably reached a level with the power where he doesn't need physical contact to shape-shift. I know this may be a stupid question, but how come when people shape-shift, they can automatically change their voice to sound like the person they're copying?

    ^hmm, hadn't thought of that. makes sense that he reached a higher level of power. he does seem to shift shape faster now too. and i guess that transforming changes his entire body and not only his face, so even his voice would change too. everything except the DNA, of course. but then again, i think the writer's are less concerned with the science and more with the story...so you see how nathan sounding like sylar would be a bit of a problem for them...

    i think that if they get alice on their side...woah. they could just remote-bombard building 26 with lightning or something, and danko can't do a thing. they'd have their own Storm. i can just see sylar drooling over her power already...

    ...but looks like we won't be seeing her for a while. for now, her only role was to put angela's mind to rest. but she might be appearing in season 4, which is, apparently, called "redemption". i guess that would mean they avoid the whole world finding out about them, and maybe try to go back to their normal lives...AGAIN...

    but with sylar probably going after the president himself within the next two episodes, i don't think it'll have such a neat ending. either way, there will never be any 'normal' for any of the heroes. which is sorta sad, in a way.

    i'm hoping to see sylar's father, alice and claude in redemption. but yeah, maybe sylar can alter his vocal cords as well as changing his shape.

    How is Sylar still able to function even though there's a knife stuck at the back of his head? I'm so glad Micah was not another one of Sylar's victims.

    I think as a general rule for american tv sitcoms, children aren't allowed to die.

    As for Sylar, man that's bs. With the only weakness gone, there's absolutely no way to beat him now.

    Good Times
