I am very sure you are correct. The lady who he got the power from (her name escapes me) dealt in illusions (ie, becoming Sylar, the twins, etc.) - the illusion included the beach.
I for one like the Sylar character, as well. Yeah, he is a bit comic bookish - but there are dabs of that throughout the show.
And am I crazy, or was that Nichelle Nichols as Nikki's mother in law (say that five times fast)? Could we be witnessing a Star Trek reunion here?
In fact, I would not be surprised if she was one of the elders with a power - and, again, we have met three of those elders, right, if this is correct (herself, George Takei, and Cristine Rose). All three have been in ST (herself and George - rather obvious, Rose appearing in parts one and two of ST:TNG's Birthright episodes).
In fact, if Linderman (Malcome McDowell) was an elder - there is yet another Star Trek connection.
I know that has nothing to do with the plot itself - but I find connections like that rather fascinating.
