Episode Recap: "The Eclipse, Part 2"

The loss of abilities may have scared the heroes and villains in the previous episode, but in the conclusion of "The Eclipse," it was the lessons each character learned from their inabilities that seemed to matter most. Nathan decides that some power was necessary in a world of evil, Daphne learned to forgive herself and make her past wrongs right, Hiro remembers that heroes exist to give hope to the hopeless, Mohinder learns that the evil brewing inside of him may not be a side effect of his injection and Sylar decides that no one can really ever change themself. Throw in a few deaths (some permanent, others not so much) and the regaining of powers (that was quick, huh?) and you have one wild episode. Let's dig in!

"that was quick"....that was the longest eclipse ive ever known, seemed to last for hours, they normally about 4mins! the thing i dont get is, if all the heroes got their powers at the last eclipse, how did adam have this powers way-back-when? if people did have powers before the last eclipse(which they did), surely someone would have put "two and two" together about how every eclipse they lose their powers? i mean, there must be about 4/5 total eclipses every year, if they handed over claire when she was 1 and now she is 16/17 thats about 75 eclipses! i love the show, but every new ep just seems to be adding more and more plot holes!

There is only one total eclipse every one to two years. There is also typically one annular solar eclipse, where the moon doesn't completely cover the sun, in one year. Just a couple of facts.
Anyway, the show does have a few plot holes. Do the heroes get their powers from the eclipse, or did the group of scientists that include Hiro, Nathan and Peter's parents invent a formula and inject it into babies? Maybe both? I love this show and will continue to watch. I just hope they explain some of these holes.

Elocin, you might be right about the amount of eclipses, but the fact remains that in the last 15 years of claire being handed over, there will have been more than one eclipse, so why did nobody know about the link between eclipses and their powers?. and to greenly, yes i know thats when adam got his powers, but then did he lose them at the next eclipse? and then continue to lose them at every other eclipse in history? when he had his power taken away from him by peter and nathans dad, he died of old age,......why didnt he die when there was the last eclipse? i really think the writers are making it up as they go along.
