Recap

This was the worst episode of any show I've ever seen. Here's what went down:

- Peter and Sylar were stuck in the latter's nightmare and eventually broke through a brick wall that magically popped up because they sort of made amends. Once they got out, they ran into Eli, who was sent my Samuel to keep these two away from the carnival. Who knows why. Peter barely even has any powers any more.

- Claire was shown a slew of memories of her father that revealed: he was married to a woman named Kate who was killed by a special. She was pregnant with his baby at the time and HRG went on a vegeful spree from there. He killed another special in self-defense and was eventually recruited to join The Company. After two years, they encouraged him to find a wife and start a family because he had to chill out and settle down.

Claire didn't like learning all this, but none of it actually mattered. At the end of the episode, Samuel buried the trailer these two were in deep in the ground.

He also announced he was taking the carnival to NYC to cause some serious havoc. So that's the exciting storyline heading into next week's finale: Samuel is going to NYC with his fellow carnies and Emma is apparently set to kill thousands of people because Sylar and Peter are being trapped in a basement. Can't you feel the tension?!?

Having now seen the season finale I'm still unsure of how I'll regard season 4 in a few weeks or months. The main problem with the show (as I see it) is there are just too many storylines going on and there is no continuity in the series. In season 1 every storyline logically progressed the final battle with Sylar, but now they all seem like random events with no connection to each other. So many things happen then are never mentioned again as if they never occurred. It's very frustrating to try to take the show at all seriously when so many details are never explained or even touched upon again, or even worse lamely wrapped up in the last 5 minutes of the season finale (Charlie's fate, Samuel's plot, etc...). C'mon people you can do better than this!

kinda corny at times. i liked the sylar/peter friendship because if kindagoodsylar/reformedsylar was ever going to happen, it would be this way(over a span of years) and not some "all the sudden I'm your brother and love you now".
so there was no change in Claire's opinion to her dad. ABOUT TIME. she is way too emotional over stupid things. It was a psychological roller coaster that ended back at the end. that is fine. not everything needs a huge character change with loads of dramatic words and feelings. that is unrealistic.
i liked learning about HRG's past anyway.
the Samuel reeking havoc thing is a little redundant with NYC. they should go to DC or find a better place.
and where did matt go? so he finished barring sylar and then left peter there? he is probably going to save them form Eli next week.
overall this season is WAY better than 2 and 3. i personally like to pretend 2 and 3 never existed 4=season 2. i fill in the blank plot holes myself. it is not too difficult and it is mentally rewarding.
