Best scene was Zeljko Ivanek's character Danko - he gets around, last year Damages, this year True Blood, and now Heroes - leading a military unit, firing in cold blood at some of our heroes. Claire and Daphne are shot dead - guess who survives. It was a powerful scene.
HRG is not quite going along with Nathan, who is not quite as evil as he seems, either. Danko is. And, at this point, he's the worst point-blank villain.
Sylar, who's become a dark knight Batman, is probably not as bad as Danko either. And Sylar has picked up a kindred spirit, a dark squire Robin. He lived next door to Sylar's real father ... I'd say it's at least a 50/50% chance that they're brothers.
I'm liking the pace and the action in these 2009 episodes. Less metaphysical angst, more bullets, makes for better Heroes...
