There has been some debate over Sylar's watch on some of the forum boards. Some believe that Sylar wears two different watches. After viewing them side-by-side I think that there is only one watch and it is a Sylar worn only by Sylar. The above image shows the watch after Chandra Suresh's murder (left) and six months ago (right). The watch on the right is not embedded in a case and covered with a crystal and therefore "looks" different than the other. This difference has been used to argue that there are two different watches. The only real difference that I can see between the two watches is that on the "6 Months" watch, the word "Sylar" is clearly visible. In the other one, where the watch is broken, you can't see where it says "Sylar" because the hands are in the way. The two watches have too many similarities to be different. What they have in common: The ball at the end of the second hand is identical. The minute and hour hands are the same. The triangular pips pointing to the hour numbers are identical and the winding mechanism is identical. They are, in my opinion the same watch.
P.S. Peter's watch, on the other hand, is a Nixon.
Also, there was additional speculation that in Peter's dream sequence that the sound of a ticking clock could be heard. I have watched the episode a number of times and find that the ticking is actually the "blinking" click-click-click of the construction arrow sign "> > >"in the background of the dream. The sound can only be heard when the arrow sign is visible (and just after it leaves the screen). It is not a Sylar sounding watch ticking.
GRAPHIC NOVEL 12
Also, Graphic Novel # 12 "Super-Heroics" was released today (12/12/06) at the NBC Heroes Graphic Novel page.
While in a comma in the hospital, presumably after his dream sequence in "Fallout", Peter struggles literally with his inner self. This issue of the graphic novel resembles a true comic book more than any other previous issue. Peter, and his counterpart, are dressed in familiar super-hero garb (to quote Ando "tights and a cape") and are battling for domination over the other. After the battle the antagonist is revealed and Peter realizes that he has been fighting himself. While we are certain not to see super-heroes in tights and capes in the series this issue gives us an insight into Peter’s emotional state. The fact that he considers himself a good hero is weighed down by the fact that there is potential for both great good and great evil in all people. Peter understands this and fears that he may not be the “good” hero he wants to be. The doubt entertained here is probably something any normal person might experience when found that they possessed an extraordinary ability. I enjoyed this issue for all the above reasons but also because it appealed to the teenager in me. Obviously, after all the thought and analysis required to publish this site I sometimes forget that “Heroes” really is a great deal of fun and presented to us for our entertainment. The graphic novel “Super-Heroics” brought me back 30 years, even if for just a moment of pure comic entertainment, and for that I truly appreciate their efforts.
P.S. Episode 12, which is scheduled to air January 22nd, 2007 is entitled “GODSEND”.
