Storyline

Back in India to mourn the passing of his father, Suresh encounters mysterious dreams of the past that force him to question what path to take next. Continuing their journey to New York, Hiro and Ando stop at a Texas diner and meet someone interesting: a waitress named Charlie who has her own special ability of instant learning. But the shadowy serial killer, Sylar, finds her first. Intent on getting back to her normal life, Claire focuses on Homecoming preparations, unaware of what's to come. Meanwhile, H.R.G. and his associate Eden, focus their attentions on another "hero": Isaac Mendez whom H.R.G. (Mr. Bennett) confides that he needs his help to find Sylar before he kills Claire. In Los Angeles, Parkman and Agent Audrey Hanson interrogate the nuclear man, Ted Sprague, about his abilities and learn that he too was abducted by the mysterious horned-rimmed glasses man.

Quotes

[first lines]
Mohinder Suresh: [voice over] The earth is large. Large enough that you think you can hide from anything. From Fate, From God. If only you found a place far enough away. So you run... To the edge of the Earth, where all is safe again. Quiet and Warm. The Solace of salt air. The peace of danger left behind. The luxury of grief. And maybe, for a moment... , you believe you have escaped.

possible theory as to what is going on
17 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The show has a bit more violence than I am use to, however the plot has me hooked. Heroes reminds me of Highlander with a twist. In Highlander, Duncan would end up killing/beheading the rival and taking that person's power/life experiences in the process, because in the end, "there can be only one" of these special immortal people.

Sylar has been a mystery up to this point. He killed the professor (Chandra Suresh) , a family in LA, taking at least one brain that I remember. Then at the police station Sylar tried to get the surviving family's little girl, but Matt stopped Sylar by shooting him. Sylar regenerated himself and jumped up and away. I theorize that Sylar kills people with his mind and then eats their brains to absorb their abilities. He then killed the waitress because he needed the ability to learn things faster like languages, etc. This ability would open him up to travel anywhere in the world and learn the language and culture there. He is now after the cheerleader because she can not die.

If Sylar has this ability, to not be killed, along with the other abilities, he could rule the world. He would be invincible. That is why "if you save the cheerleader , you save the world." Peter Petrelli is also a key figure who has not been highlighted as much. He temporarily absorbs the powers of the person he is with, i.e. Isaacs' painting prophetic paintings or his brother's ability to fly. If Peter can get close to Sylar, it is possible Peter could turn this ability Sylar has on Sylar to defeat him. It seems that Sylar can sense the special abilities of these people, as he tracks them down, so if Peter is close to Claire, it may confuse Sylar long enough for the other Heroes to protect Claire.

Just some rambling thoughts....
