Heroes -- "Duel" -- 12/15/08

Photobucket

Synopsis:

Spoiler:


In the aftermath of the showdown against Arthur Petrelli, his sons find themselves at war, with Nathan making a gambit that will have global repercussions. Meanwhile, Sylar captures Claire, H.R.G., Meredith, and Angela at Primatech -- igniting a tense face-off. Elsewhere, Ando, Matt and Daphne try to rescue Hiro -- and Dr. Suresh may be their only hope.



Last new episode of 2008 and the end of "Villains." The show returns February 2nd with Volume 4 called "Fugitives."

Maybe this has been discussed and I'm missing something, but who is that in the right background btw Parkman and Sylar and opposite Angela? Is that Molly?

I hope for some closure but I don't have high expectations at the same time.

Enjoyable episode.

Spoiler:
I highly dobut Sylar is gone. It wouldn't surprise me at all, if he's one of the people to help the captured "heroes" during the end of the next volume.

Glad to see him working again.

Good end to that story arc. Interesting direction for Nathan to take but kinda surprised that there aren't any sentinels involved.

Pretty good episode; next arc looks like a movie that was out a few years ago...can't remember the name, though. Can anyone jog my memory?

it seems to me that they were ripping off the movie SAW in the way Sylar is torturing HRG, claire, etc.

And there's the original story-telling I was hoping for! In all seriousness, though, I think this next arc could be really entertaining to watch.

Episode was OK. Any other show and I'd say Sylar is dead, but this show has no balls, so they'll find a way to bring him back in the next volume. Most likely either a chef or a real estate agent.

Pretty solid ending to the volume, although Peter should have shot Nathan and Sylar should have killed Ma Patrelli. Thin the herd, dammit!

I'm not a fan of giving the last remaining normal person, Ando, a power, but I have to say, I like his power.

I really enjoyed this episode far more than any other this season. Still didn't like the lack of closure; Ando has the power he had in the future but does that mean the future is still not going to happen the way Hiro saw it?

The next chapter should be awesome, unless it gets muddled in the mythos.

There's no way Syler is dead, the same thing happened to Peter in Season 1 and I think I've seen this story before there was this comic some years back it was called X...something?

Nathan is making little sense, "lets give everyone powers" now, lets round them all up? Of course Sylar is fine, they need to end him at some point though, it has gone on long enough. Hiro needs to get his powers back (in some ways again) And we never find out why giving everyone powers does that Hiro saw to the world, makes makes so much explode? At least the coming half of the season will not be about the world ending.

It was a good episode, looking forward to more.

I did not understand a few scenes from the ending involving Hiro.

How did the other future artist show up? And how did Hiro have the formula?
