holding out for some heroes (until the fall)


I’d like to open up discussion for the Heroes season three finale. Technically, volume 4 finale. No reruns tonight. It’s been a week since the season finale aired. You’ve had time to catch up. So it’s fair game to talk about, especially for those who might have Heroes withdrawal already. But I will say SPOILER ALERT to be fair for those that are like me, and watch shows a month or so after the air date.

I’m upset with the big fight scene with Sylar, Peter and Nathan. I understand why they did it, to see if Peter managed to get Sylar’s power… but still. Only showing flashes of light that flashed on Claire’s face as she watched behind closed doors? Boo! I’m glad network TV is free. I’d want my money back for a fight scene that you don’t even get to see. Especially a fight scene as climatic as that. During the season finale! However, I understand why they did it like that. So they could set up for the twist in the limo when Sylar goes to shake hands with the “President” who really isn’t. Turns out, it was really Peter! And then Peter get’s the upper hand, by stabbing Sylar with that drug that knocks him out.

But having Sylar brainwashed to play the role of a deceased Nathan? Interesting… I don’t really mean that in a good way, but maybe the writers have something cooked up for that twist. I admit, I was shocked that Nathan was the one to be killed off (again). I was under the impression it was a female cast member. Then again, I was under the impression three people would be killed off… or leaving the show… or something. Then I started to worry it might be Hiro. No, not Hiro! Way too early to say, since he was shown walking away at “Sylar’s” burning. (I think, my memory is fading.) So we’ll see what develops next season with that.

What I have a growing interest in is Tracy’s revenge or redemption… I’m not sure. But she formed out of liquid all T2 style to kill a man who wronged her. And she was naked. For stunts like this, and the violence Heroes has already shown, they might need to make the jump to HBO or Showtime. Or maybe Ali Larter just likes being a tease. Let’s not forget, her original Heroes character Nikki/Jessica was an online stripper and call girl for a certain currently deceased senator. I’m just saying.

So after the little teaser for season four, or volume five, will I return for more in the fall? Probably. I’ve been around since the beginning, and it’s been a staple in my Monday nights ever since. Plus I feel as though the show will be as awesome as it once was. A lot of people lost faith in it since the second season. Even I’ll admit it lost me. I personally liked the “Villains” volume, many people didn’t. But you can’t win them all, right? So let’s see where this adventure takes this time, shall we? Your thoughts, feelings, for this season and/or the next, let me know.

  1. I actually liked the way they did the fight scene. Heroes has had plenty of fights, so I didn’t feel like I was missing much – and sometimes I like it when they put my imagination to work. Then again, I’m not the biggest fan of fighting.

    The Sylar/Nathan situation is predictable, I think. We already saw him tinkering with a clock, which tells us that Sylar is still in there, so we can expect his personality to return slowly, over time. Keeping Sylar alive was dumb. I don’t like it when characters on a show like this make dumb decisions – especially when they should have already learned their lesson. I did not find it believable that they’d let Sylar live (even in another persona) after everything they’ve all been through.

    They never should have killed off Nikki. This business with the triplets is lame. But I like the new ability Tracy has acquired. I’d like to see her meet up with the fish boy that Claire befriended (whatever happened to him anyway?).

    The best moment was that scene in the limo when Peter tricked Sylar. I didn’t see that one coming.

    I’ll definitely be back next season.

      I’m definitely not a fan of fighting. Well, not me in a fight anyway. But I love a good fight sequence as long as there’s a good enough reason (person A hates person B, begin).

      So I went around asking some friends and family, they all agree that keeping Sylar alive is a mistake. And I agree with you, no rational person would allow to live, memory wipe or not. …That is if we lived in a world of superheroes. This season should’ve ended on the high note with Peter tricking Sylar. Then burning Sylar’s REAL body, or maybe hacking it to pieces, or something that will pass network censors.

      I’m interested with Tracy. That’d be interesting for the fish boy to be a sidekick of some kind, I don’t know how long that would last because Tracy’s character seems better suited to be a lone aveneger… or revenger. I heard some word of some new characters or scenerios for the other characters, and I gotta find out what happens with Hiro (and Ando) and the others.
