Heroes Episode Recap: "Tabula Rasa"

Oct 19, 2009 10:48 PM ET by Adam Bryant

Watch Episode

In this episode of Heroes, Samuel welcomes Sylar to "the family" by leading him on a journey of self-discovery that Samuel hopes will return Sylar to his killing ways. Meanwhile, Peter sets out with HRG to find someone who can heal Hiro's brain tumor. And while Peter's away, Hiro puts on a magic show to help Emma see the brighter side of her ability.

The Circle of Life

When Hiro confesses that the destiny of his cosmic bucket list must have brought him to right a wrong in Peter's life, Peter thinks it's exactly the opposite. Peter vows to find someone who can heal Hiro, so he steals Hiro's power of teleportation and pops in HRG's bathroom. ("It's been a long time since I teleported," Peter quips.) HRG exposits that Claire's blood won't save Hiro, but he remembers a kid, Jeremy Greer, who the Company once tested and who was healing near-dead insects. Perfect!

Peter and HRG teleport to Jeremy's house, but it's not a very lively (get it?) place. All the shrubs are brown and the place smells like death. Inside, the guys find out why: the corpses of Jeremy's parents are stinking up the place. HRG exposits that Jeremy's ability isn't only healing, but full control of the circle of life. Somewhere along the way, Jeremy's power turned him into a killing machine. And even though his hands are deadly weapons, Jeremy decides to use another deadly force to scare off the intruders: a shotgun.

HRG tells Jeremy he's there to help, and insists that they've met before. (The Company wiped the kid's brain after their tests were done.) Jeremy laments what his life has become, but just when HRG has calmed him down, Peter teleports in and a shot is fired. Peter freezes time, but realizes he's frozen it moments after the bullet has pierced his chest. He falls to the ground, bleeding out, and HRG begs Jeremy to save him. Jeremy insists he will kill Peter, but HRG notes that even though he's touching Jeremy, he's not dying. Now in control of his power, Jeremy revives Peter, who takes Jeremy's healing power and heads to the airport to get back to Hiro. HRG decides that he needs to get back to work helping those with abilities, and apologizes for failing Jeremy the first time around.

Building a Better Sylar

"What is a man without a mind?" Samuel muses in voiceover. A broken vessel? Clearly, Samuel is a man who believes we all have a compass that guides us, and he is more than a little dismayed that the Sylar's is broken. Indeed, the Sylar that Samuel thought he was bringing into the family doesn't exist anymore, at least not outwardly. The name Nathan still is the first in Sylar's mind, and he remembers being a hand-shaking politician and flying fighter jets. Sylar's memories these are not, but Samuel is a patient man. He's going to bring out the memories of the animal inside.

Step 1: Invite the police captain who is hunting Sylar to the carnival. Samuel reasons that Sylar might accidentally kill Captain Lubbock if he sees him, which Samuel thinks might open the skull-splitting one's mind. Step 2: Introduce Sylar to Damien, the man who can open up Sylar's mind. In the House of Mirrors, Damien flips a switch inside Sylar, and he (and the audience) is treated to a greatest hits album of Sylar's kills. (Still miss you, Elle!)

Sylar doesn't want to believe he is a killer, but Samuel convinces him that he was brought to the family because the outside world made him a monster. Here, he can defend the family from those who hope to harm him. And since Sylar's gotten his memories back, Samuel no longer needs Captain Lubbock. Samuel sics Sylar on the policeman, but he refuses to kill him, instead warning him to run. When Lubbock won't lower his weapon, Sylar is unable to control his electrical power and shocks him. (Samuel defines this as muscle memory
