SYLAR page 5

Here's page 5. There was a huge debate here that Sylar has some sort of Super-Jump after reading this. I'm just glad that it didn't read that he can fly. The script actually says:

"The driver's door is open and Sylar is Telekinetically moving himself to a safe place against the mountain."

So he can't fly. NBC were very specific in my notes that Sylar cannot fly. I believe because it's one power per person. Nathan can fly, therefore Telekinesis means you can't (in the HEROES universe anyway). I drew him hanging onto the branch to further illustrate that the jump he made was impossible, but he certainly didn't fly. I also wanted the branch to be kinda thin to give you the idea that he's holding his own weight with his Telekinesis.

Again, check the coloured version for what Annette did. She basically blew life into the piece. The blurs, smearing headlights, helicopter, police lights... It all brings it to life.

Wouldn't this be the first time Sylar's used his telekinesis on himself? fairly certain he's only ever used it to on other objects before.

I believe this page would be the first instance that he uses it on himself. He alludes to it in Episode 16: UNEXPECTED. When Sylar confronts Dana and she says, "I didn't hear your footsteps." He says, "There were no footsteps."

Which to me implies that he floated there using his telekinesis. Unless anyone has any other ideas...?

First, great post, Jason. Thanks for the clarification and the info from the script. It's interesting how specific NBC is in the script.

As for Sylar using telekinesis on himself, he also used it in episode three (One Giant Leap) at FBI Headquarters; after Matt shot him, he seemed to "fly" upwards to avoid the shots.

Thanks again, Jason — can't wait for the next installment!

Yeah, that was my assumption, too, when he said that, so I thought your interpretation of this particular scene was appropriate, Jason.
