The Hard Part  
I watched Heroes last night, and was not disappointed.

Somehow, I hadn't really figured out that Sylar actually cuts off the top of people's heads and takes out the brains to get their powers. I wonder if he has to eat the brains ...

The scenes between Sylar and his mother are just heartbreaking. When he called Mohinder, after realizing he might explode and kill hundreds of thousands of people ... It was as if he went from being mindlessly evil to being a real person. Then you get to see why he's so screwed up (god, some people need parenting lessons), and then he loses it. I actually feel like he's more of a tragic hero now. And if he comes back to his senses ...

Maybe Sylar will get to save the world.

It was a very good episode. I kind of felt bad for Sylar. I know he's evil and I shouldn't feel bad for him but I couldn't help it.

I felt bad for him, too. I think it's because we got to see the human side of him. He'd always been "the boogeyman" as Molly called him, so it was easy to hate him, or at least not empathize with him.

Now, though, I think his life has just pushed him over the edge. All that "you're not average, I know you could be so much more, succeed to make mama happy" stuff obviously affected him. The part where he asked him mom to say that it was ok for him to be normal just killed me. Especially when she didn't agree.
