    I'm still of the impression they are one and the same.

    I don't really see how good of a guy he can be when he killed Chandra.

    Although I did just find something interesting on IMDB while I was looking up Chandra's name. They list Sean Bean as "Paul Sylar" in three episodes. Of course we all know how relable IMDB can be. Considering I sure as heck didn't see him in "Better Halves" I'm writting it off as a hoax.

    I seriously geeked out at that. I <3 Sean Bean.

    Dammit, that brought me down to earth. [face_frustrated]

    Double damn...

    Heroes (Paul Sylar) - Paul Sylar is NOT played by Sean Bean, contrary to rumours and the IMDb

    Well i always thought Claires dad and Sylar were different but i thought maybe there was more of a connection between the two like their paths have crossed which may have started Claires dad on the path he is on now.

    I think the Claire's dad is a bad guy, but not "the bad guy", if that makes sense.

    if Claire's dad is bad I think it's on a much smaller scale of what to come in the future.

    While I'm starting to come around on my Sylar=HRG theory. I still don't know if one will necessarly be more bad then the other. I defintaly think they are connected.

    love this show
    Tim Sale's artwork is so awesome!

    Hiro's the BEST

    Future Hiro - hes got a sword! so bad@$$!:cool:


    have some theories:
    clairs 'foster dad' might be a gov. agent tracking/tagging the "supers"
    keeping them in line, ect.
    think he might turn out to their commis. gordon......down the line.....maybe....? i duuno

    clairs real dad might? be sylar? maybe? (scary)

    Fascinating theories Bar_Bar.

    Ones I'd like to see actually. Goes with my thinking, especially with Clair's dad.

    clairs real dad might? be sylar? maybe? (scary)

    Scary is right, but I can see that. Someone who might pull Nkki to his side, if she isn't already?? o_O

    A talkbacker on AICN made a good point about the enthusiasm people have for this show, stating that it's not bound by any existing canon or continuity like Smallville, or a movie about Spiderman, Batman or the X-Men. Every week reminds me of going to the corner store when I was a kid and dropping down a few quarters for the latest Daredevil, Captain America, G.I. Joe, Ghost Rider or Punisher.

    It's completely fresh, a modern grown-up comic for those of us who grew up with cape-and-tights superheroes. I have ideas about where the show will go, but the writers keep me on my toes.

    o.k. so we have our Heroes,
    then theres gonna be Villians, right?

    is Nikki evil or just misguided? she is the POWERHOUSE of the group,
    will she be brought in, or continue the dark path? Mica will factor into that...

    IF Sylar IS Clairs father, would she join him and together they could ect,ect,ect


    whatd make a great episode is once the gangs assmembled, who take lead?

    flying senator? "im a polition, i lead!"

    vision painter? "no! i see whats about to happen, follow me"

    Hiro would be:D

    cheerLEADER "GOOOOOOOO TEAM!" j/k

    It'll be Peter. He seems to be the key. More then Clair. Makes sense too. He's been in his brother's shadow now he has the chance to be someone to do something. He's already accepted his abilities while the others try to hide and reject them. He'll be the leader.

    Another superb episode. I growled in frustration after DL and Micha drove away from Hiro and Ando.

    Loved Hiro's comment about wishing for super strength as well. LOL

    Very interesting about this incendiary man's comment about blowing up the city.

    I liked getting a little peek at Micah's power/s. Still not sure about what side Nikki's on, or more to the point, Jessica's.

    This show is just too damn short though. :p

    Sad to see Richard Roundtree pass, but as long as his daughter sticks around, so will I!

    Glad to see I was right about Micah having a power doing with machines. That should be interesting. And more heroes on the way it seems. And it seems next week will finally solve the issue with Clair's dad. Part of me really hopes he's not evil and is instead trying to prevent whatever is happening. But he could be a very interesting villian if done right.

    i haven't seen this new episode yet but i'm sticking to my thoughts that Claire's dad will ultimately be good. it just seems to obvious that he's setup as a bad guy

    Good episode. I had a feeling that was what Micha's power was. Seems like he has put two and two together and figured out whats going on with mom. He obviously doesn't know the full extent otherwise he wouldn't of set his parrent's up for round two.

    HAve to say I chuckled at Micah pretty much demanding to talk with his mom while on the phone with Jessica. Doesn't surpise me he was very much more aware of what was going on, though it does make me wonder what the problem is with his parents, or if it's just a matter of Jessica feeling that DL cramps her style being in Nikki's life.

    I think Nikki is on Nikki's side. There really isn't any 'sides' yet. The only people so far who have a sense of purpose / fate / mission is Peter, the Painter and Hiro.

    Could that radiation guy be the actual eventual explosion in NY?

    That was a cool episode. Micah manipulating electronics is pretty sweet, and I thought it was funny when he asked Hiro's friend if he was the guy that showed at his house looking for his mom. =D= for the mind reading cop for punching his "friend" for sleeping with his wife.

    When the old bloke died in the dream sequence, I obviously didn't know it was a dream at the time. I thought that Peter was going to jump out the window and fall to his death or do something stupid, because, he obviously only flew that one time in the presence of his brother due to his power mimicry.

    Was it a dream though?

    I'm not quite sure yet what it was but the dad seemed to think that it was real. Maybe Peter was having some residual effect from being around some one we don't know about yet or maybe its part of the root of his powers.

    Edit: Did you guys see these?

    I would disagree about there being no sides yet. There's always a good and bad side, in fact Micah was just telling his dad this last episode about being a good guy vs bad guy.

    I would think Sylar thinks he has a purpose as well, though what he's doing cannot be construed as anything but bad.

    I loved Matt punching his so called friend. My heart breaks for him thoug, he's trying so hard to make things right with his wife. [face_love]

    I wasn't surprised that the cheerleader drawing has the highest bid.
