Wow, that would be a really cool power to have... [a minute later] and there's Sylar, oh crap =P
You know, i would have added something along the lines of "and if i _do_ die it's not your fault for helping me."
"do you have any idea what this means to me?" "you'll survive" ha!
Now if anyone can take Sylar down Peter can, but only if he can learn how to use Sylar's powers quickly enough. Which is especially ironic if Sylar's been stealing his powers as well. So what do you want to bet that Peter _does_ die, but then gets regenerated by absorbing cheerleader girl's powers, ala Rogue and Wolverine in X-Men?
Either that or everything goes pear-shaped and next episode we get to see how Hiro comes back from the past and fixes it.
And now Peter is going to get arrested, great. Although in this case Sylar actually put his hands on his victim (isn't that breaking his modus operandi a bit?) so hopefully there will be forensic evidence to indicate it wasn't Peter. Plus if they analyze the blood he's soaked in they're going to find out it's his own blood, and won't _that_ lead to quite a few questions... Of course Claire could come forward and clear him as well, though i'm not sure if her dad is going to let her have that opportunity.
Cute girl is a bene gesserit! And i can't tell if they actually killed Sylar or not. That would probably be wrapping things up a bit quickly. The stereotypical stupid thing for an agency to do would be to try and keep him prisoner and either analyze or control him. Good luck with that.
Huh, there's a lot of solar eclipse like things reflected in the window at the hospital.
That's dumb. She had a fatal disease so it's supposed to be okay that she died, right? =P And it really sucks that Sylar got her power. Bad enough that he had almost unstoppable physical powers, but now he's a genius too? Unless of course it turns out her power is to give yourself brain aneurysms that turn you into a genius for a few months before you die :) Still, not as bad as if he'd gotten the regeneration power.
So Sylar's ability to steal powers is tied up in an ability to tell if something is "broken"? So he pulls out the brains and just looks at them and intuits how they work and then can duplicate it? Or does he just eat the brains or something? I wonder if he got a job as a brain surgeon and could get at people under operating room conditions if he could learn people's powers without killing them.
So what powers did that little girl from the crime scene have? Sylar wouldn't have come back for her if she didn't have something good.
And we've had Mr. Pryde (CL? JL? JD?) getting shot as one of the cliffhangers for two episodes now.
