Heroes! Episode 3

Sylar  Angela

Episode 3 continues this fascinating dance between Sylar and Angela Petrelli.  Can't find the words to explain just how cool and interesting and brilliant this development is.  As a fan of actors, watching Cristine Rose and Zachary Quinto bring this dynamic to life is truly thrilling.

From a purely artistic point of view, the show is doing a bang up job muddying the lines between hero and villain.

Big YAY for Milo as both Peters and Jamie Hector's escape from capture by Sylar and Noah. (which means he'll be on the show still!).  Lame power though, Jamie.  Sorry brother.

That said, it seems Matt Parkman will be stranded outside the storyline a la Hiro Season 2 until some big reveal around sweeps.  Eh, unenthused.  Love Greg Grunberg but Parkman is a snooze.

I'm still irritated by Ali Larter's transition to someone entirely new, but there's a nice twist at the end of the episode that has some real potential.  Seeing Micah (a lil grown up) again was nice. 

The best scene in the episode was one with Claire and her biological mother, Meredith Gordon (played by Jessalyn "Asshole" Gilsig*).

It's nice to see Claire step outside of her usual victim role (and acknowledge it) and one is always happy to see Gilsig in anything.

Lastly, so glad Mohinder wasn't in this episode.  Not feeling him at all this season.

*"Asshole" is what Gilsig's character always called Christian Troy on Nip/Tuck. I'm sure Gilsig is not an asshole.
