Ok, admittedly i've been one of Heores' biggest critics recently but i must say i rather enjoyed this one (i even reweinded it a couple times, which i haven't done for a good while)
The plot is now firmly in place, admittedly it took a while to get there, but with the exception of Hiro & Ando, we pretty much now know the goals of each character and there was a nice plot twist with the change in command from Petrelli to Danko.
I prticularly enjoyed seeing Sylar interact with his father (It would probably be a good idea to sign John Glover on for a few more episodes as he is a great actor). The best thing to come from it was that Sylar seems to have rediscovered his hunger, and with that little push from his father is now going after the big fish (as shown by the final scene).
All in all, theres a decent set up now, im actually intrigued at how it will be concluded. Hopefully Sylar will join the hunt and Peter will regain his old abilities. Maybe then we'll see another one of their classic battles. But knowing the writers of heroes im pretty sure they find a way to screw it up.
would have been an 8/10 but the special effects in this episode were pretty good. Loved the scenes with Nathan flying
