Now on his own, Sylar finally finds his biological father, Samson Gray, a reclusive, lung-cancer ridden taxidermist, to confront him with questions about his past, but soon learns that Samson is not who he appears to be. Meanwhile, Nathan continues to lock horns with Danko over the hunter's tactics to eliminate people with abilities, after he tries to frame Parkman for an attempted suicide bombing. This leads to both Nathan and Danko going behind each others back to unseat the other. Nathan becomes wary about Danko going rogue and the hunter interrogating Tracy, as well as Nathan's mother, Angela, about Nathan's own ability. In California, Claire takes Alex's old job at the comic book store where she is given a message by 'Rebel' to help out her former nemesis, the puppet master Eric Doyle, when he too is targeted by rogue agents. Also, Hiro and Ando return to California where they are led by clue from Rebel... to an infant Matt Parkman. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


In the restaurant, Angela Petrelli tells Danko that two blue eyed people can have a brown eyed child. This is not true because the gene that gives people blue eyes is recessive which means that someone has to have two of those genes to have blue eyes and that if they even had one "brown eyes" gene that they could pass on to their children then they themselves would have brown eyes. It is however possible for two brown eyed people to have a blue eyed baby. See more »

An okay,occasionally good episode,
25 March 2009 | by (Bangladesh) – See all my reviews

The beginning of volume 4 was excellent,but it has gotten downhill since. However,with this episode the tides just maybe changing.While this was just an okay episode compared to the episodes we've seen on this show before,it had certain great moments that managed to surprise and excite me.Sylar's father using that weird siren song power was the first surprising moment on this show for quite some time.I had been reserving my judgement on Sylar's side quest until his meeting with his father,but it was everything i hoped for.Finally,Sylar has a clear motive for grander things.Samson gray's dialogues reminded me of Linderman's speech to Nathan about a life of meaning,which encouraged Nathan to go for the presidency.With Story lines,hints and rumours all pointing towards a possible "Five Years Gone" future we saw in season one,Samson's speech maybe indicating why Sylar went after the presidency in that timeline.Angela petrelli's confrontation with Danko was very satisfactory.Cristine rose is indeed a great actress and her character is one of the few best written one's of the show.Some of the other story lines,however were not that good.Claire's attempt to help Doyle was too predictable and boring.That scene where Doyle attacks the female agent had no urgency or emotion.Also predictable was Danko pushing Nathan out of the window.Overall it's a mediocre,verging on good episode.With Bryan Fuller coming back in the next episode,things just maybe looking up for Heroes.
