  • Very interesting Samuel episode.

    How sweet! Sylar wants to be good… we know how that ended the first time around. Then again, both Peter and Angela had a vision of Sylar trying to help Emma. Sylar's darkness comes from his primary power – the need to consume power, remove his powers and he might stop. Matt didn't take that chance – he used that trick he learned from his father. Bricking an immortal Sylar up in a wall is very Poe.

    I like the symmetry of Peter saving Sylar – I always liked the brief time when we thought Peter and Sylar were brothers. They'd make a formidable team, much like Peter and Nathan at their best.

    Samuel's plan is brilliant – make it look like Noah went back on his word, making himself a martyr (giving them something new to be afraid of), make his people even more afraid of persecution and getting rid of Lydia. He can feed their anger and make them an army.
