Don't Look Back

As Eden and Mohinder search Chandra's apartment for clues about his research, Eden notices that there are messages on Chandra's machine. After a message from Chandra's boss at the taxi service is a message from Sylar. Partway through the message, Chandra picks up the phone, and the remainder of their conversation is recorded. Sylar describes a "hunger" he can't control, and claims that Chandra "made him" that way. Chandra says Sylar is a murderer and that he wants nothing further to do with him.
