Sylar meets his Daddy (who is actually Lex Luthor's dad, so wrap your brains around that)! Claire starts working at a comic book store, because cheerleaders love comics.

This Invasion of the Body Snatchers remake, starring Nicole Kidman as the psychiatrist who discovers that an alien epidemic affects humans whilst they're sleeping.

Now Silas has a national hero he can manipulate to suit his Kingly needs, and of course all hell breaks loose. But it's got Ian McShane, so check it out on NBC at 8 PM.
