Heroes -- "the Second Coming/the Butterfly Effect" + Recap = 3hrs -- 09.22.2008


"the Second Coming"

The first chapter of Volume 3: Villains kicks off moments after shots rang out, as the shocking identity of Nathan s assassin and the reasons why the Texas press conference had to be cut short are revealed -- immediately throwing Peter and Matt into unexpected, uncharted territory. With his powers partially restored, Sylar decides a visit to Claire could give him a boost. Meanwhile, in Tokyo, Hiro and Ando are charged with safeguarding a family secret that could split the planet apart, and discover that the path to a grim future starts with shady speedster, Daphne. In New York City, thanks to Maya, Suresh makes a startling breakthrough that could change the world -- or just destroy his.

"the Butterfly Effect"

Angela confronts her much-changed son, Peter, as the bursts of violence around them only hint to the catastrophes to come. First, Sylar declares war on the Company by attacking their main facility, and finds even more than he bargained for on Level 5. During a devastating battle with Elle, a dozen savage criminals -- all with terrible abilities -- escape. Meanwhile, Claire discovers something new and unexpected about her abilities. Determined to reclaim his family s terrible secret, Hiro and Ando track Daphne to Paris. After a fateful night, Suresh is thrilled to find his research, his life and his relationship with Maya evolving in leaps and bounds. Stuck in unfamiliar territory, Matt finds a guide to help him.

I know what you mean.

Right now the only real conflict I have is between RAW & Prison Break (along with Yankees games, but they're repeated immediately after the game is over). Now with Heroes coming on, i'm definitely jammed during 9 between that, Prison Break & RAW.

And once Samantha Who? returns... :

Same here, glad to see someone else feel that way.

I'm pretty freaking psyched about Heroes coming back, it's been far too long. I'm mostly spoiler free, so these two episodes are going to be great viewing.

What has it been like 9 months since episode 11 of last season aired?

Hopefully with all this extra time they had, Tim Kring and his writers will create a knockout of a season.

I think Sylar wants a high-5.

Who is the chick behind him?


It never dawned on me till just now that Claire's friend Zach (season 1) is now John Connor.

I'm assuming the recap episode comes first, and not after the new episodes as implied in the subject header.

I'm in. Hopefully the 2-hour premiere can keep me interested enough to take it in one viewing.

I have to say...I don't have very high hopes for tonight. I hated last season (as most did). I'll be watching prison break tonight and recording this. I hardly even remember what happened last season. Can anyone give a quick recap of the ending?

Is the first hour an actual episode or is it just a bunch of fluff of the premier night? Just curious as the info on the first hour doesn't mention the show but just behind the scenes with the cast and crew.

I only recently saw Season 2. Managed to get in on the Borders coupon for Season 1 and Season 2 on Blu-ray. I can't wait for this tonight. I quite enjoyed season 2.

I hope this season really delves into the nitty-gritty about Maya's power. I want to know how it works, exactly how long it takes, etc. Or at the very least, I'd like the recap hour to be a "best of" featuring her character.

i thought Maya and her now deceased brother were one of the weakest links in 2 years.

Most of my friends have said they'll give it 2 episodes to redeem itself or else they're done for good. I think I'm onboard with that.

I can't wait until we find out that The Company from Prison Break is the same Company from Heroes that also called themselves the Dharma Initiative before changing their name in late 2011 to Cyberdyne in order to insure that the existance of Skynet remains a mystery because it was being developed back in the sixties on a mysterious island whose location can only be found on a series of 6 "cards" known as Scylla which will also unlock the secret of the Shanti virus that threatens to destroy Skynet via a group of super-powered individuals.

Perhaps I should have wrapped spoiler tags around that.

2 episodes? So your done with the show after tonight if it doesn't grab you right away? The 2-hour premiere is actually 2 episodes back to back.

That's frankly more than the show deserves IMO. This is not like Lost which was mediocre for a little while before making its comeback. Heroes sucked bigtime last year.

And unlike Lost or 24, the writing was so inept that they've almost backed themselves into a corner that they can't get out of with ridiculous plot devices like Claire's magic healing blood or Hiro's time travelling ability.

Yeah, I'm attached to Big Bang Theory and Prison Break, so Heroes gets the backburner - watch later treatment. Still looking forward to the season though.
