Talk:Sylar's cell

From Heroes Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Had problems adding images for some reason - but I'm still new to this Wiki thing. Think we should have an article for the cell as this is bound to be a central location for a while, in addition to the effect that it has on the powers of evolved heroes.

capitalization

  • FYI this article should be renamed "Sylar's cell". When deciding how to capitalize an article, imagine how it will appear in a sentence. e.g. "Eden approached Sylar's cell and..." (Admin 23:50, 8 December 2006 (EST))

Cell blocks powers?

  • I'm hearing around in a couple places that Sylar's cell has some kind of technology that was blocking Sylar's powers. Are there any credible sources for this, or is this another case of "Sylar eats the brains" where everyone just assumes it's true? :) (Admin 22:32, 11 December 2006 (EST))
    • Never heard of it. It's a cool idea, but I don't think it's the direction the writers are taking. Who knows - maybe I'm wrong... - RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:08, 11 December 2006 (EST)
      • I'm probably just listening to too many theories, it's rotting my brain. ;) (Admin 23:10, 11 December 2006 (EST))
    • Mr. Bennet told Sylar that his powers wouldn't work in the cell. We never got any explanation for why that would be the case, but it seems logical that Bennet would have some resource available to keep Sylar from escaping. It may have been something as simple as drugging his food (which he never seemed to eat). Whatever it was, Eden didn't expect it to keep her from using her own power, and I'm sure she was quite surprised when Sylar yanked her through the window. --Ted C 23:29, 11 December 2006 (EST)
      • The theories I've heard seem to think that Eden deactivated the power blocking field or whatever so she could use her suggestion on Sylar, but that he got her first. The first time through, I assumed it was just because the Haitian was around (and Bennet didn't want to draw attention to his abilities and make him a target). After all, when Sylar gets Eden, the Haitian's off not-wiping Claire. However, on second viewing, Bennet really does seem to imply it's something about the location. And you're right, it would make total sense for an organization like theirs to develop a power dampening field ... especially if they study the Haitian's powers. As theories go, this one is better than Micah as Iron Man, which is what I'm using as my crackpot/plausible ruler.--Hardvice (talk) 00:06, 12 December 2006 (EST)
        • I wouldn't be surprised to find that the room is constructed to block mental powers in the same way that The Haitian can. Perhaps it was learned by studying The Haitian? It does seem like even at the end it blocked Eden's power as well which may be why he shrugged off her command. I wouldnt be surprised to find that he has some power over magnetic fields. So perhaps while it blocked his telekinetic power, he took advantage of her holding the gun to pull her into the glass that way. It could also be used to explain how he took out the lights at the high school when he attacked Jackie. In any event, this is pure theory at this point, I'm just waiting to see how it plays out.

          • Assuming that there is a technological mechanism keeping Sylar from using his telekinesis, it may not be affecting all of his powers equally. In particular, if it didn't suppress his Intuitive Aptitude, he might be able to figure out how the system works and circumvent it. --Ted C 15:14, 12 December 2006 (EST)

Name change

Since this is no longer Sylar's cell, should this article be renamed? AWI cell or Primatech cell perhaps? --Parlemer 01:28, 27 February 2007 (EST)

  • Do we have any reason to believe that Sylar's cell and Ted's cell are the same cell? They could easily have more than one.--Hardvice (talk) 01:42, 27 February 2007 (EST)
    • Looks damn close. Same spot with the sink and toilet, same weird caulking job on the walls. Granted, there's no proof it's the same room, but I think it's pretty clear it's the same room that production used for filming.--Baldbobbo 01:48, 27 February 2007 (EST)
      • If they're not supposed to be the same cell you'd think they'd make it more obvious.. even the door to the cell and the door to the viewing chamber are in the same location. I guess we could start a new page for Ted's Cell though ;D--Frantik (Talk) 01:49, 27 February 2007 (EST)
        • I think a page that's neutral to the occupant would be a better idea, and redirect any reference (Sylar's or Ted's cell) to it.--Baldbobbo 01:54, 27 February 2007 (EST)
  • Let's have a new article for Ted's cell since we're going to have new pictures and all. Perhaps new furniture or other items specific to the work they're doing on Ted. Plus it's the safest way to go unless Mr. Bennet says something obvious like, "A man named Sylar once sat right there." We can also always note in the article that Ted's cell may be the same room as Sylar's cell. (Admin 01:57, 27 February 2007 (EST))
    • Gonna make Ted's cell, just almost a copy of Sylar's, will need a picture.--Baldbobbo 02:14, 27 February 2007 (EST)
      • I don't think "Notable Ocupants" on either is necessary though, since the title of each IS "Sylar's/Ted's Cell"... it kinda blatantly states who the occupant is :P--Riddler 02:23, 27 February 2007 (EST)
        • Maybe in Ted's case, but not Sylar's since three different people were in it.--Baldbobbo 02:25, 27 February 2007 (EST)
          • There may have been 3 people in it but I wouldn't consider Mr. Bennet or Hank occupants, they just visited, even if Mr. Bennet did get locked in.--Riddler 02:26, 27 February 2007 (EST)
  • Ok, "Ted's Cell" and "Sylar's Cell" are identical in every way except the bed has been turned 90 degrees. I don't think it's speculation to say they are the same cells.. any more than it's speculation to say that we say Simon's dad's rooftop in Company Man and not some identical looking rooftop. :) --Frantik (Talk) 11:13, 27 February 2007 (EST)
    • They're using the same set. That doesn't mean they intend them to be the same cell. Presumably, multiple cells in the same building would look pretty darn similar, so there's no reason for them not to use the same set. That said, I just don't see how we gain anything by speculating that they're the same cell, and having two separate articles is more useful in any case.--Hardvice (talk) 15:56, 27 February 2007 (EST)
      • I think it's even more speculation to say that they're not the same location. There is no evidence to support the fact that they could be two different cells. However there is evidence to support they are the same cell, specifically: they look perfectly identical, down to the location of the lights outside the room and even the imperfections in the cement. --Frantik (Talk) 19:06, 27 February 2007 (EST)
