Good point. That whole tumble off the top of the bleachers, right.
It would seem that passive powers must activate automatically...but if he's exposed to a passive power does he know he's acquired it? Ferinstance, if he met Monica would he know he had her power, or would he have the same discovery experience that she did?

The discussion about the regenerative blood & passive powers is what got me thinking about canon. I get the feeling that no one has "written down" how it works, and it's likely to vary story-by-story, writer-by-writer (assuming that is, that there's more than one writer helping in Heroes).

I think he would sense it. Remember his persistent dreams in the beginning? May take him a while to figure it out, but he should sense it. And since he's been through that evolution a number of times, it shouldn't take him anywhere near as long as it took him to get flying.

Three hour? All I saw was a pre-show at 8 and the new episode at 9 (of course, I didn't scroll over to the 10PM position).
The recap showed scenes from the 3rd season not featured in the 2 hour premiere and some cool behind-the-scenes F/X footage for some of what we saw last season (the shots of Nathan saving Peter before he explodes were really cool to watch from the F/X and bluescreen perspective).

Yep. Last night *rocked*. I like how they're bringing back "oh sh$#!" moments at the episode's end followed by "to be continued..." :D

Though I've always wondered what the Chinese connection was to that show. The symbol on the costume is the Chinese character for "middle" (China was "The Middle Kingdom", in the sense of the being the center of the world; the Japanese retaliated by pointing out that they were the source of the sun, Nihon).
