This is perhaps the most anticipated series cliffhanger of the television season for yours truly; being the über-geek that I am, I find this sci-fi “comic’book” style show fascinating, and very thought-provoking.
Monday is the climatic event we’ve been waiting for all season – will the big bang happen, or not? Will the”Heroes” get incinerated in the ensuing disaster? Will all hope be lost?
Good questions. Last week’s episode already blew me away, with both Linderman and Thompson getting the heave-ho out of the series, both in dramatic, and fitting, fashions. Micah Sanders manipulated a congressional election for Nathan Petrelli, who then begins his turn towards the dark side; D.L. Sanders gets shot (but it never shows him dead; just some food for thought); Molly is revealed as the “tracking system” that must be stopped at all costs; Hiro and his dad go at it with some nice swordplay in a bid to teach the time traveling young man how to defeat the enemy; Ando goes after Sylar, who in turn gobbles up Ted’s “explosive” personality for his own agenda; etc. etc. etc.
LOTS of information revealed, still a LOT more to come.
Predictions? Don’t know; this show is just crazy enough to let you second guess yourself. I thought I had some of it figured out, but now…I just don’t know. I believe that New York will be saved from disaster, perhaps by a jagged piece of glass and some last-second flying abilities. I believe Sylar will escape to come back and haunt the “Heroes” on another day. I assume that Micah’s role in the future timeline is bigger than anyone imagined, as shown by Isaac’s painted revelation. But these are only guesses.
We’ll see on Monday! Tune in on NBC!
