The whole kissing thing wasn't as horrific as I was expecting, but still, it's a pretty shameless move and it was completely pointless since the girl apparently has no ulterior motives or relevance to the plot other than a love interest for Claire. I am kind of interested in the whole sorority invisible chick, and as much as I hate acknowledging positive aspects to Claire's storyline, I liked the little twist.

As for Sylar...I doubt that's the last we'll see of Nathan. I'm just wondering how we'll get him back now. I'll probably be in the minority here, but some of Zachary Quinto's acting here was painful to watch. I did like the psychiatrist girl and Ernie Hudson though.

And what happened to Mohinder? I mean, is he on maternity leave or something? This the weirdest sudden absence on a show I've ever seen that does not involve the star getting pregnant. :P

Once again, with sound deaf girl, not entirely sold on her yet. She is sort of likable, but I can't really see her story going anywhere. But Peter wasn't entirely annoying with her.

And no Tracy, no HRG, no Mohinder. They could've cut down on Claire's stupid and unfunny sorority interviews to include something from them. Tracy and HRG have all been pretty good this season, but they're not really getting a huge plotline like they should.

I'm loving the way the carnival is linking up with every other storyline, Claire, Peter, Hiro and now even Sylar, really glad it's Sylar that ended up taking the place they have empty too.

I hope he dosn't go on a mad one and massarce the Carnival tho, cos thats easily the most interesting part of this season, and Rober Knepper is awesome.

Decent episode, but I still think the Claire/Gretchen lip lock was gratuitous.

It will be interesting to see if Sylar flips completely back to the dark side though. It would be good to see him lose some of the serial killer edge. The character has a lot of potiential...

But, I agree with Nick, it would have been nice to see Tracie and Noah, I agree with you that we could have used a little less of the Claire Q&A/Speed Dating though. It seems like TPTB are really trying very hard to make a focus on Claire, and that can be a slippery slope if they are not carefull how they handle it...

I actually kinda enjoyed Claire's storyline today and I did not see the bit with the invisible sorority chick coming. That was a nice twist. I'm finding something hot about Gretchen in a weird way, so I enjoyed the kiss.

Zachary Quinto was awesome this week. Unlike Nick, I thought his acting was amazing and I'm even more into his story than I already was. Speaking of him though, where the hell is Parkman again? I actually cant believe I'm saying that, but he's been on the money this year too.

I still dont know what to think about the deaf girl. I dont know where she fits into anything. Unless she is related to someone at the Carnival. The stuff with them was great in this episode too. It was nice to see Sylar being taken in. But where did it go at the end? Did Samuel just make the trees grow in front of it or something?

Wow what an amazing episode! So far episodes have more character centric and lessed focused on the special effects( Volume 3) Love what thier doing with Peter, having him reconnect with people through Emma, which will hopefully bring his original ability. Finally we got the Claire/Gretchen kiss and it was pretty good glad we can rule her out as villain. I still trying figure out Samuel's endgame? The Sylar scenes were amazing! Brilliant acting by Zachary Quinto. I"m conviced that he will recieve a Emmy nomination along with the show itself Overall, great episode. :thumbup:

Another solid episode, I really hope the ratings would stop decreasing tho, at the rate that they are we mightn't even see out the full season. Great job by Zachary in this episode, but what is up with his hair?? :P

Oh and where the hell is Parkman, he was totally kick ass this year so far.... I can't believe I miss him!! :O

This episode was "meh" at best. Zachary Quinto was great this episode. I really couldn't care less about Emma(the deaf girl). I am still curious about Mohinder. I mean seriously, where the hell is he? I really like Robert Knepper's character Samuel. But honestly "Redemption" isn't living up to the hype. So far this season has been good then bad good then bad. I hope it gets back to the craziness that we're used to. I'm still hoping this show "redeems" itself.
First he said "We're never going back" Then "We have to go back!" Now its "We never even have to come here in the first place" Just make up your mind Jack!

What the hell are you talking about LostFanJim?
Volume 5 is the best season yest (Apart from 1)... Volumes 2, 3 and 4 were rubbish, terrible, insanely shocking.
3 and 4 were obviousl yterrible from the beginning.

This is the first time since season 1 I have been looking forward to watching Heroes.
There was no hype to redemption, which is one the reason I think it is doing better for me.

Oh and Mohinder scoop;
Spoiler (Click to reveal/hide)
He returns in Novemeber


I like teh deaf girl, her chemistry with Peter is really good.
Sylar is just a legend, great actor withing Quinto.
Parkman is a legend, as is Greg.

I was never a fan of Nathan, but he will be back I am sure.

So does anyone else think Sylar's soul/memories are still stuck in Parkman and he'll need Parkman to track down his body for him and when he does... everything is going to kick off! :w00t:

I think so, to a certain extent. I still think Sylar is in his body but not all the way. Just minor traces of him. And when he comes face to face with Parkman again, I think Sylar will become whole again.

I mentoned this elsewhere, but what if, by putting the part of Sylar that Matt has does something to change Sylar into a completely new personality? Where you end up with a Sylar/Matt combo personality. Maybe even being a 'better' person thanks to some of Parkman's mojo filling in some of the Sylar gaps... :hmm:
