Trivia - Quantico Office

Mohinder says he faxed the list "to your Quantico office". The most likely recipient in Quantico, VA is the FBI. If so, Mohinder is making things difficult for himself: one of the largest FBI field offices is in New York City, and Headquarters is in Washington, D.C. The facility in Quantico is merely the training academy.

  • I don't see this as a mistake on the part of the writers, or the character. Having been a teacher himself, it's more plausible to presume he may have connections in Quantico. We don't know enough to assume he's "making things difficult for himself." In fact, sending it to the New York office, or Washington DC, may have set himself up for ridicule. Whereas if he could send it to fellow teachers, perhaps someone who knew his father even, would have given him better odds of being taken seriously. -- ZachsMind 17:33, 2 February 2007 (EST)
    • You make a good point that he may have been calling a contact. However, the tone of his conversation sounds very much like he is imploring somebody he doesn't know, not like he's informing an old friend or even a casually acquainted colleague. But you're right that we don't know enough to assume that he's making things difficult. I'll change the language so it says "may be" instead of "is". — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 18:27, 2 February 2007 (EST)

Claire's Door

I was just watching the reairing of Fallout on SciFi and, for what it looks like to me, Claire's door all of a sudden closes for no reason. If anyone can explain please do, as it seems to me that the door is possessed... --BottomlessPitMan 21:03, 30 March 2007 (EDT)

  • Maybe it's just weighted. Some of the doors in my home close on their own, too. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:57, 30 March 2007 (EDT)

Sylar's attack on Eden

I watched the season 1 episode Fallout again and it raised some questions:

- How come Sylar doesn't want to "take the gun and blow his brains out"

Possible Answer: Mr Bennet said that Sylar's abilities didn't work in his cell. So the same happens to Eden's ability.

- How come Sylar managed to use his ability, Telekinesis, within his cell?

Possible Answer: ????

- How come Sylar said, when Eden wanted and could shoot him, that it wouldn't hurt him? And she actually believed him.

Possible Answer: I guess he meant that he could stop the bullet, since his telekinesis did work.

Why did Sylar even say that, a bullet to the head means your dead ... right? Why did Eden believe her? Did anybody else had this question? I would really appreciate it if somebody could explain.DarthYotho 09:26, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

  • I don't understand your last question. Are you referring to Sylar's line, "Oh, Eden, you know that won't hurt me," when he's talking about the Eden's gun? Eden knew he had the power of telekinesis and, he was right, he could probably deflect the bullets, just as he's done in a few other episodes (Parasite, How to Stop an Exploding Man). So instead, Eden made a split second decision to kill herself rather than let Sylar become even more powerful. Does that help a bit? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:56, 2 April 2008 (EDT)
  • The best explanation I've heard for #1 is that Eden made her command conditional ("I'm going to put the gun in the tray, and then you're going to blow your head off"). Since the condition was never met (she never put the gun in the tray), the command never took effect. Had she managed to get the gun in the tray before he pulled her in, it would have worked. As for #2, one of the interviews claims that it was the Haitian doing the power dampening, and that a deleted scene showed Eden distracting him and getting him to leave so her power would work. Sylar probably figured out that since she expected her power to work, his probably would, too. He's clever like that.--Hardvice (talk) 19:50, 2 April 2008 (EDT)
    • Thank you guyss! I'll relook the deleted scenes, cuz I usually look them after the episode but I think I skipped them on one disc or something. But that happens sometimes that they cut scenes out which raises some questions to fans who want to know "more" you know and who think the scenes through to see if they make sense.. Questions answered DarthYotho 13:41, 3 April 2008 (EDT)
      • AFAIK, it's not one of the deleted scenes on the DVD (in fact, I don't know if it was even filmed), but one of the writers mentioned it in an interview (not sure which one, but I'll look when I get a chance).--Hardvice (talk) 14:17, 3 April 2008 (EDT)
        • From and interview with Tim Kring: "They have had him pretty drugged up. That in conjunction with the proximity of the Haitian and Sylar was supposed to be subdued enough to not be able to use his powers. As for Eden, there had originally been a scene that clarified that she was able to distract the Haitian in order to slip into Sylar’s cell. It was our intension that this allowed Sylar the extra power that he needed to overpower Eden. However, I hope it was clear that she killed herself in order to keep Sylar from getting her power." -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:59, 3 April 2008 (EDT)
