Couch Baron: C | Grade It Now!
There's…Another Part?

Sandra brings a tray in for Claire, but drops it in horror when she sees her, like, do people outside of TV actually do that? Especially in this economy? The reason, anyway, is that Claire is bleeding all over, unconscious, and not looking well...

...but at least she's not squealing like a pussy, which is what Sylar is doing, and Elle tells him so in so many words before finally managing to pop his shoulder back into place. The whiplash of her character notwithstanding, Bell makes her really enjoyable. Sylar pants and groans for a while but at least thanks her, and then checks on his powers, which are of course still gone. He goes and picks the gun up as Elle worriedly asks what's happening to them, and Sylar says he doesn't know, unnecessarily and annoyingly adding that he used to understand everything, but nothing makes sense anymore. What complete bullshit, especially since it took you until this season even to be aware of the stupid hunger that apparently makes you tick. Sylar says they're just human now, and Elle disbelievingly asks if he's okay with that. He says it's actually a relief, as the need to have power is "so numbing," He says he hasn't felt like this since his time with her that they made up two weeks ago, and she rehashes the retcon as she tells him with pain in her voice that it was her fault that he became that monster, as if she didn't gleefully get him to commit murder in this very episode OH MY GOD are they trying to drive me crazy? Anyway, the writing here is giving me the appropriate and very real sensation of being in a Tilt-a-Whirl, so rather than vomit on my computer I'll just tell you that the drawing of Sylar kissing Elle comes to pass. And that's not the only thing that's passing around here. Suddenly, the camera darts back, and we're watching them make out through the sights of the gun that Bennet has trained on them. And I love both those actors, as I've made clear, but if Bennet doesn't kill at least one of them it's going to be another in a long season of cop-outs. We'll find out next week.
