Heroes question [Jul. 23rd, 2011 at 11:08 am]

I'm still plugging away at How You Sleep (and of course the latest chapter completely changed), and I realized I can't remember something:

Why, in Volume 3, did Peter need to absorb future!Sylar's intuitive aptitude?? All I see in heroeswiki is that future!Peter told him he needed it to Save the World. But what would IA have helped? Would it have just made Peter more badass to take down his dad? Or is this just another Heroes plot point that didn't really make any sense and went nowhere?

Uh, wow, I totally forgot about that plot point. I had to jump onto Netflix to figure this out. What I got from Future!Peter's conversation with Present!Peter is that our Peter needs to stop "somebody" from making the formula that can give people abilities and he needs Sylar's ability because it'll help him figure out exactly how to do it without screwing up like Future!Peter constantly does.

Hahaha! "You need Sylar's power to cure our Fuckupitis." I guess that's as good an answer as any.

Although, even with IA, Peter still screwed up and wound up getting all his powers taken away. Poor bunny. :(

Well, when you're getting a plan from a guy who admits that he's screwed up one too many times, seconds before he gets shot in the back, you know you're doomed for failure. :P

Side note: rewatching that scene reminded me of how unintentionally hilarious Peter's douche-walk is. You can't help but giggle when there's two of them, walking like hired thugs side by side XP

LOL Douche-walk. It's especially funny because Peter just isn't that threatening to be thuggish. Even scarred future!Peter, since we know he's still a screw-up.

Speaking of duh moments, I just remembered I have Netflix streaming and I could've checked this myself. :P

(Ugh, the Sylar-Claire boyfriend-girlfriend picture makes me want to punch my screen still.)
