Does Syler have the power to compell people to do what he wants like that one girl who blew her head off? Because sometimes he seems to be talkiing like her. Like his voice sounds like many at the same time.

She killed herself before he could "acquire" it.

But Eden met with Peter in Suresh's apartman, so why can't he use her ability? :confused:

Sylar - he can be easily defeated by the Haitian. If they want to stop the exploding, than Hiro should teleport the Haiti to the square (he let Hiro use his ability on him), so Ted, Peter or Sylar won't be able to explode. :o

Peter only uses the ability when ha thinks about that person and what they can do. That means he can do all kinds of things if he only knew. Like maybe his mother...

Like Doze said, he needs to know about the ability and remember Eden and the way she made him feel. He only met her briefly so he may not even remember well enough. But his body should remember how to do it, unless that memory can fade just like the memory of a person can, entirely possible I think.

How I think its works is that he auto absorbs the abilities when he is close to them and it is instinctually active around them. To use the abilities afterward he has to consciously recall how that person made him feel. Like how memories are linked together, but the ability is linked to an emotion (Hence, he's an Empath). So if that emotion comes out so does the ability. This explains how he used Telekinesis on Claude without consciously thinking about Sylar. He was feeling frustrated/scared like he was in Homecoming and that was enough to bring out the Telekinesis.

I think to prevent him blowing up at the start of Landslide all they have to do is have Ted run away. Peter will still have his ability but it won't be automatically active. Then he needs to stay away from Ted and concentrate on not activating the ability on his own, which seems to be pretty easy as he's never accidentally activated an ability unless pushed into it like with Claude.

I don't think he eats the brains. "In Six Months Ago" they kind of insinuated that he takes things apart to see how they tick. On heroeswiki.com (http://heroeswiki.com/Main_Page) they refer to his power as Intuitive Aptitude and give this description: Intuitive Aptitude is the ability to analyze complex systems and intuitively understand how they work without special education or training.

This would explain several things like how he was able to know that Mohinder's father's watch was broken from across the room when he said "It's Broken. I can fix it" and then right before taking Telekinesis from Brian Davis and saying "You're broken. Suresh was right. It's so clear now. How it all works, pieces fitting together. It is in the brain.". And also when Bennet had him in that cell and Sylar said to him "Because I can see how things work. What makes things ... tick. Like You".

Didn't Molly tell Mohinder that Sylar eats brains?

Thanks. I thought the same that Eden didn't use suggestion when she met with Peter. And how can he use Sylar's abilities, if he don't know whom should Peter remember? Is the picture of Sylar enough for him to activate every Sylar abilities? ;) What about the Haitian? Peter and he met on the roof, when he flied away with Claude. The Haitian forget to use his ability against them? :confused: Peter should use Parkman's thought reading against Nathan, than he will know what his brother is planning against New York. :)

Peter has met Sylar twice now, he remembers him well. This should be enough to activate any of Sylar's abilities in himself. But to actually use the ability, he needs to also know how. He can't use Sylar's ice ability for example if he doesn't know it exists. He can use Telekinesis because it was forced out of him when he needed to defend himself against Claude (like a reflex action), he also saw it in action in Homecoming.

With Eden its the same thing. Peter should technically be able to use suggestion, but without any knowledge of its existence or who Eden was he has no way of accessing it. We also don't know if his body forgets abilities in the same way you can forget memories. I think it would be cool if he did, the powers are in the brain after all. Since he barely met Eden and has no idea who she was, he's probably forgotten about her completely and in turn maybe his brain also forgot how to use her power.

I hope HRG will give him some idea about Sylar and Eden. :D

What will happen when Peter will meet with Nikki/Jessica? Will he have an other personality too or he will be able to turn off his dark side?

In my opinion Nikki just has a plain old split personality disorder and her special ability is just that of immense strength/agility.

I think that was just a child's wild imagination...

I'm not sure about that.

Whenever the FBI had found one of Sylar's victims (remember they were tracking him) the heads weren't just opened up but the actual brains were *missing* as well.

If all he needed was to 'see' the physical structure of them why would he take them with him.

He could need to study them for a while in order to fully integrate their power. Or maybe he eats them. I don't know. I read in an interview that Tim Kring said we will find out early next season what he does with them....

I don't think he eats them but he might take them and study them by cutting them into smaller pieces and stuff .
