Advertisements Ok, surprised no one mentioned this theory. (Or I missed it). Sylar *does* have the power of illusion now. He just doesn't realise it yet. The illusion you make is for *someone else*. There's no one else in that room, if there were, they would have seen Sylar's illusions. We have no idea what Candice has been seeing all along. Sylar is just assuming that she was seeing her own illusions.
