This show finally -- FINALLY! -- starts to get interesting by moving the plot forward instead of just going around and around in circles. Still, I reserve the right to take back this positive opinion of the episode once I've seen the end result (and, really, once I've rewatched it), but so far, it's mostly not bad.
But first, the bad: Sylar wants his powers to go away and forces Parkman to try to remove them by threatening Parkman's family. Matt finally buries Sylar's powers and puts him in some sort of nightmare version of his head, then decides he'll put him behind a brick wall (a la Cask of Amontillado and Oz). He's well on his way when Peter shows up looking for Sylar (after having his mom's dream that Sylar's the only one who can save Emma and everyone else), steals Parkman's power and realizes Sylar's in his basement, and heads down to free Sylar from his own nightmare.
