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...
