By way of an 18-hour flashback, we watch Sylar losing his ability to distinguish himself from the people he shapeshifts into, eventually settling on Nathan and plotting to assume the president’s identity. Inbetween, we see Sylar morphing into Aunt Gray and having a conversation with himself (!), averting death even after Željko plunges a knife into the back of his head (!!) and briefly giving Micah a place to stay (!!!). Meanwhile, Matt returns Baby Matt to Janice, then realizes that his dream of a happy family life won’t be an option until he shuts down Goon Squad Central. Which Hiro and Ando were haplessly attempting to achieve until Hiro’s time-freezing gave him a nosebleed and a killer migraine.
