Thanksgiving - Let's Fill The Turkey!
26 November 2009 | by Gustavo_LequericaSee all my reviews

At last one episode that I truly like this season and is a Holiday episode. The positive aspect of this episode was that in the narrative structure was more like season one episodes as the reason is it was divided into three stories that seemingly interact with each other… except with this case was with Thanksgiving.

In the first story we see a Petrelli Thanksgiving reunion in which nothing really happened except that it was the first time we see Sylar back in his own body and the omen of "Nathans" end. There was more of exploration of the Nathan/Sylar paradox which let me to think that the writers had the idea of using the Ultimate Gwen Stacy character in which two character are fused into one leaving one character with the characteristics of the other one and maybe in this case it will be a more compassionate Sylar who is going to have the stoicism of Nathan.

The second story was with the Bennetts, this so far was the least interesting story of all the three presented because it didn't showed anything interesting except that Claire is going to explore the Sullivan Brothers Circus, which let me to think that the writers had to find an excuse to write off Madeline Zima character of the series.

The third story and in my opinion the most interesting one of the three revolved around the Sullivan Circus which at least was exposed who killed Joseph Sullivan than none other than Samuel in a fist of rage but to cover his crime he continued to lie to the other circus performers that their charismatic leader was killed by someone else. In a weird thought now the fourth season it's started to gather strength in his narrative and the dynamics and it even gave the looks that the show can survive without becoming a clone of Charmed .
