New Heroes timeline theory

May 1st, 2007 (11:02 pm)

Okay, I'm trying to work out what could have happened in the original timeline up to "Five Years Gone" here.

Sylar gets to Claire at Homecoming and kills her, gaining her regen powers.
Claire comes back from the dead after this and Bennett hides her away.
Peter never meets her, never gains the regen powers, thus allowing him to get that massive scar across his face.
Hiro meets Sylar in New York, and after Ando is killed, stabs Sylar with the sword.
Sylar regens and runs.
Peter explodes killing most of New York.
Nathan blames it all on Sylar and rides this into power.
Specials get outed, and hunted throughout the world.
Bennett sets up an underground railroad, and Hiro funnels Candace and DL through that.
Sylar gets to DL and Candace, kills both and takes their powers.
Using Candace's powers, Sylar kills Nathan and takes over his role.

Hiro has managed to change the past then. By getting Peter to Homecoming, he stopped Sylar getting Claire's regen factor. Just as when he went back to Charlie, he's managed to make a small change in time, but the general flow of time keeps going.

Though the fact that Peter has a scar, and yet Sylar still seeks Claire's regen powers seem to contradict each other.

My head hurts.

Heroes sidenote. Calling these two wacked out theories now :-
1) Ma Petrelli has a power of prophetic dreams. Peter's been demonstrating these powers over the season, so he had to pick them up from somewhere.
2) Charlie was going to die from a brain anylism amyurism anyerlism trouble before Sylar killed her and took her brain. I suspect that is still in Sylar's head now and could be the ultimate end of Sylar. Just the most delicate TK touch....

i think original timeline was:
Sylar kills Claire
Sylar gets powers from "Radioactive" Man
Sylar gets powers from shape-changing girl.
Sylar gets Nathan's powers.
Hiro stabs Sylar, but Sylar heals quickly.
Sylar blows up NY, heals with Claire's powers, assume's Nathan's identity.
Everything goes on as planned sans Peter guilt.

after Future Hiro intervenes:
Peter saves Claire
Peter gets "Radioactive" Man powers
Sylar gets shape changing powers
Sylar gets Nathan's powers.
Peter blows up New York
Sylar as Nathan blames it on Sylar.
Everything continues.

The difference is Hiro. Since Hiro's powers are time travel, he is now outside the whole space time continuum. So he is a time anomaly. So, Future Hiro remembers everything that happened to him. He doesn't remember the new timeline.

Also, current Hiro went to future New York before he got a chance to try to stab Sylar. The fluidity of the future shows what happens if Hiro doesn't run Sylar through with the sword.

At least, that's what I think.

Of course, it still doesn't explain the Peter scar.

Trouble is Candace of the shifting powers was name-checked by Bennett and FutureHiro as going underground after the bomb. So those powers were grabbed by Sylar after the bomb.

Best theory I've heard on the scar is physological guilt from blowing up New York won't let him heal all the way.

I also don't know how kosher Bennett's underground railroad is since Sylar got both Candace's and DL's powers. I'm guessing not very kosher at all.

So sometime after New York was blown on either timeline, Sylar assumed Nathan's ID.

I also heard that same theory about the scar, and that sounds like it could work. I didnae want to present it with my other theory cause I like to believe I came up with my theory all by myself.

I believe Nathan started the witch-hunt off after the bomb certainly, given Sylar's comment about him betraying his people.

Bennett mentioned to Matt that his deal was that he could let the minor cases melt away, but he always turned over the dangerous ones - ie DL and Candace.

Well, they'd get sued for sure if they used the M-word. *grin*
