Clear and Present danger - discussion...- mild spoilers -

This is an unsettling episode - the rounding up of 'different' people by someone who should know better. I felt discomfited, partly by the time change again - months after the previous events - and partly by what was happening on screen.

I think for the first time I actually cheered for Sylar, a character they started to allow to develop, but then decided (very abruptly) against it.

I will watch the next episode tentatively, fearing any subsequent plot developments, but something in me hopes they bring this series to a positive end. If they can really only imagine the world heading towards the dark place it was at the start of the third series (Peter being shot by Claire etc) then I don't think it's one I'll invite into my house on a regular basis. Most people are more positive by nature. I know I am.

I agree that I was thrown off by the time change - I either missed something right at the beginning, or they didn't make it extremely clear how long it had been, and even if they were clear, the transition was a very bumpy one.
I don't really understand why Nathan is helping head this "round up the heroes" thing since obviously he's one of him, but I'm really hoping more of that will become clear along the way. I too am doubting how well this will all be played out, so I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for some good plot developments that make this all cool instead of more confusing and scatterbrained.

I'm actually liking the start of this season more than the last one, so hopefully it will continue being a bit more exciting.
Regarding Nathan, it is odd, but the arc was established last season when he took his father's side, basically saying it was a good idea with poor execution by his father. This is what drove the wedge between him and Peter.
The time change was bumpy, but I picked up what happened after it had gotten into the story a bit.

The end of the last episode (the very end after it says "Volume Four" "Fugitives") shows nathan talking to the president and it says "3 weeks later" (or something very similar to 3 weeks later). very bumpy.

Yes, I remember the meeting in the limo at the end of the last season etc. But it was more the parallels with real life that I think were disturbing me. I don't think they could have been laid on more thickly if they'd tried - we plainly saw references to Guantanamo Bay (orange suits, hooded prisoners) and to rendition, and I was deeply uncomfortable about the whole thing. I felt the dark future was off track from what could have been a really positive story and I'd hate to see it really head in that direction.
