Heroes Season 2 Episode 3: Hanging Questions

This Monday's episode (3) of Heroes on NBC was in many ways excellent. Good to see Claire getting a super-powered boyfriend, Sylar back in his evil business (if not recuperated in his evil powers), Nikki back in any kind of business (and I don't believe D. L.'s dead), and Hiro and Peter moving along well in their (separate) new stories.

I especially enjoyed Hiro's messages to Ando from the past, and the danger that Mr. Bennet now seems to be...

But I'd like to see a few more answers, already, about how Peter and Nathan survived that explosion in the sky. For that matter, even Sylar's survival - "scraped off the street" by illusion-casting Candice - is in want of more explanation.

Presumably this information will be revealed as the series proceeds. But I'd enjoy the excellent new stories more if I knew a little more about how characters who are supposed to be dead ended up alive and (more or less) well.
