[first lines]
Mohinder Suresh: [voiceover] When the moon passes between the sun and the Earth, strange fascination takes root in the heart. And suddenly, anything is possible. Its power is undeniable; its beauty mesmerizing; its lure biblical; its meaning unknowable. And as quickly as it comes, it disappears, leaving us to dwell on our own insignificance, in the face of God.

Not as good as some, but not bad
22 November 2008 | by LaFeeChartreuseSee all my reviews

This episode felt like a bit of a letdown after the intensity of its predecessor, "Villains", but still had some fairly compelling parts to it. Actually, it probably wouldn't have felt disappointing at all if the one before it hadn't been so powerful.

Probably the best part of this one is the encounter between Sylar and Elle, which makes a very effective conclusion, or at least continuation, to the arc that began in the past in Villains.

The storyline concerning Matt and Daphne seems like it should have been able to hit the same level, but never quite does - I think because the actress playing Daphne isn't that convincing when it comes to showing extremes of emotion. She'd been effective in the part up to now, but I think some of this episode's events demanded more emotional intensity than she was capable of, and came off as a bit flat as a result.

Still, an enjoyable episode overall, even if not really on the level of some of this season's others.
