Overview:

Matt and Daddy Bennet journey through Company Central. They meet Molly and Mohinder, and Thompson meets a bullet. Peter stops himself from going nuclear and plans to skip town with RadioTed and Claire. Their attempt is thwarted when Sylar helps AudreyClea to track down RadioTed. Sylar then intervenes and gives RadioTed a good ol’ scalping. Hiro visits the Samurai Workshop and finds Papa Sulu there. Strenuous training ensues, and Papa Sulu totally kicks Hiro’s butt for most of it. Micah rigs Nathan’s victory in the election. Before Linderman can exploit the kid further or put any more bullets through D.L., D.L. phases a fist through the guy’s brain. I’d add how brilliant this episode is, but that sort of goes without saying.

Overview:

Sylar realizes he’s the bomb, feels guilty, and decides to visit his mom. Hiro follows Sylar to his home and plans to kill him. He fails.

In other news: Jessica and D.L. are part of Linderman’s superhero breeding program, Nathan’s just about ready to blow up New York, and Mohinder gives Molly Walker a blood transfusion to cure her illness.

Overview:

Hiro and Ando get a glimpse of the future. Peter goes nuclear, New York explodes, and Nathan covers it up by pinning the blame on Sylar. Sylar scalps Nathan, uses Candice’s ability to masquerade as President Petrelli, and organizes a mass culling of superheroes everywhere. Peter and Niki hook up, Matt sells his soul, and Claire becomes a waitress. And Mohinder? Still being duped. It seems the only way to change the future is by getting Present-Hiro to slay Sylar, which pretty much takes us into the final three episodes, but also raises a bunch of questions about who these characters are, and who they’re turning into. And it’s awesome.
