Heroes - Meet The New Conspiracy, Same As The Old Conspiracy

(Episode: A Clear and Present Danger. Spoilers ahead.)

The series has largely reverted to the original plot, except now it's the Department of Homeland Security (or a subsection thereof) playing the role of The Company. Nathan wants to protect the world from mutants, so he's hired goons to round 'em all up, save Claire. They botched the capture of Sylar, who is looking for his birthdad.

How is it that the taser darts worked on Peter but not Sylar? They've both got the same regenerative power, although acquired by different means.

And what possessed Hiro to think that Ando could act as a superhero? His power enhances others mutant powers.

Cheerleading acrobatics come in handy - you never know when you have to kick the head of someone driving a moving vehicle.

An allegedly-dead noncorporeal Usutu (I hope they explain this) is playing Obi Wan to Matt Parkman, lending his precog talents. This suggests that the "spirit walk" paste from last season was a sort of placebo, that the spirit walks were Usutu projecting his power all along.

Maybe the plane will crash on a mysterious island with strange hatches - oops, different network.
