Sylar Part of Danko’s Team; Celeb Baby News and More

This week’s episode of Heroes starts with a recap full of footage no one but the production staff has ever seen. Danko and Sylar look through the window of Danko’s office. Danko says to Sylar, “See that agent over there, to work with us you’ll need a new identity.” Then he gives Sylar the agent’s name and life in order for Sylar to work with Danko’s team. So if you’re among the many who fast-forward on their DVR after recording this show, you may have missed this part.

The beginning of the show opens with Claire asking, “So what now?” Nathan answers that he’ll return to Washington “take responsibility for my mistakes and talk to the President.” Is this a subtle apology from Tim Kring for how this season went way off track? As we know from last week they see Nathan on television conducting a live press conference from Washington as the same moment Nathan is eating a hamburger with his family. Nathan asks, “Who the hell is that?” HRG answers, “Sylar.”

Former teen star Melissa Joan Hart considered baring all in a raunchy shoot for men’s magazine Playboy during her heyday in TV hit Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

The actress was desperate to shed the good girl image she earned though roles in kids TV hits Sabrina and Clarissa Explains it All, and came close to accepting Playboy boss Hugh Hefner’s $1 million offer.

She tells NYPost.com’s PopWrap blog, “They came around and offered me a million dollars, which I had to seriously consider. Initially it’s like, ‘Yeah, I’ll take my clothes off for a million bucks, are you kidding?’ It’s the big question: what will you do for a million dollars?”

Hart, now a 33-year-old mother-of-two, turned down Hefner, but agreed to strip to her underwear for rival magazine Maxim.

He says Harper Willow is named after his great-uncle Harper Bonebrake.
