That was a pretty strong finale to vol 4. I was kinda hoping for an explanation of w/e is wrong with Hiro but I guess it'll have to wait.
The way they got rid of Sylar without actually killing him was pretty clever.
I was hoping Peter would get his powers back when they went to fight Sylar but it doesn't look like he'll actually need them... at least for now :)

Nice start to volume 5 too.

I really think that finale was amazing. I thought it would be Nathan to die, but what they did to Sylar, I never saw coming. I really can't wait until next season to see what happens next.

I thought the finale was disappointing. The fight between Sylar, Nathan and Peter, what could've been an amazing technical achievement and a really BIG moment for a season finale, was pushed behind closed doors. Literally. And while I thought the business with Sylar and Nathan was clever, it seemed to come WAY out of left field. I mean, maybe there was a deleted scene that could've built up to it a little more, but when they came back from the commercial, the plan was there and fully formed. And it wasn't that great a plan either. Gee, remake a serial killer into a senator and your son. I mean, yeah, I knew Angela was twisted, but she HAD to know it couldn't end well. Everyone knows nothing has ever come back to bite her in the butt before...And lying to Peter! Great idea! He's not going to overreact at ALL when he finds out. BUT, my biggest gripe, is that all of this could've been fixed with a little of Claire's blood! I mean, they certainly made enough use of it in season 2. While they were at it, they could've fixed whatever's wrong with Hiro. The whole situation seemed very contrived and put together at the last minute.

I mean, overall, I'd say it was averagy. Certainly not worth the three and a half stars rating in the Heroes section. Two and a half, MAYBE three stars.

Yes, that's my biggest problem too.

Oh, Claire can heal, and her blood can also heal and bring back the dead... but let's not use it to bring back Nathan. Let's not even bring up the subject...

That's stupid writing for you.

But overall, it was an "ok" final. I was expecting Hiro to die after all his bleeding, but he didn't. I actually think his death would have been more meaningful, and brought the show up a bit.

If they would have used her blood to revive Nathan, and still make Sylar forget his past, make him believe he's a better person, I think this episode would have been alot better.

The fact that it can heal in the first place was the stupid writing that really derailed the series. Up until that point when someone died they were dead. They've tried to correct that by ignoring that it happened, and that's one of the few things they overlook that I can live with.

As usual, they're pretty much locked in for that "ok" but not great finale.

The thing about Claires blood is that it's already canon. It was the company that revived Bennet using Claires blood, and Mrs Petrelli was part of the company and should know about the healing properties of Claires blood. Hell Bennet might even know, I can't remember if they told him how they brought him back. Either way the fact that using Claires blood wasn't even mentioned doesn't make sense within the context of the universe.

Bennett wasn't dead I believe... Or at least a 'little' dead. Nathan's blood was gushing all over the floor, I don't think Claire's blood would've helped much.

Season finale was okay, not great though. A good way to keep both Nathan and Sylar around.

Volume five promises to be interesting, with Sylan and our new female baddie.
Well, at least the lucky b*stard got to see a naked Ali Larter before he died.

Pretty mixed finale, from the fight behind closed doors to the death and how it was all dealt with (e.g. Sylar) and the obvious discrepancies with the healing and blood etc

was very clever how Peter took Sylar down, I honestly wasn't expecting that

I wonder if Peter only took the shapeshifting ability from Sylar though, I think its a good way to put Peter back to normal is through touching Sylar

hehe and that Sylan situation (love the term Sylan tba lol) is going to cause a lot of trouble lol

Lastly I was sort of hoping that Ando and Hiro might have worked together better, Hiros power always did seem a but straining (gritted teeth etc) but if it was so bad maybe Ando could have supercharged him to make freezing time easier; Andos power seems a bit underused, when they could have twisted out a lot of things to make them better

but Sylar was on excellent form hehehe

So Nathan/sylar hybrid is the new enemy next season fun. As well as with water lady killing random people. And the company is reborn. I am so hoping that next season everyone is together from the first episode, an the first seen is them all having some sought of board meeting discussing the company, with them about to authorised there first mission.

Again the fight between nethan and peter and sylar was rubbish. I think they should of shown more and made it bigger and left at the drowning sequence at the end for next season and use that money for the sylara and peter and Nathan fight scene.

So peter is back to his full power, well unless he was stupid and did not absorb Sylar base line ability and then use that ability to absorb the rest of Sylar powers.

Hiro has as the potential to turn into the most interesting character and storyline in the next chapter, how far is he willing to go to keep his power an stay a hero.

As to Claire blood we were never told to the extent that it could be used repaired damage bodies, or how long it takes to take effect. But again they should at least tried. And just use Parkman to make the forget. Which would means that the company started on the same foundations as the previous one, lies and deceit.


Not telling peter and the rest of the gang about there plan was stupid.
And it also obvious that Sylar brain with claire healing power would eventually repair what parkman did.

What a strange way to keep Nathan and Sylar around... hmmm.

Aside from Claire's blood not being used to bring Nathan back, I really liked this finale. Sylar was in top form and the brothers working together to bring him down (even though we didn't see much of it :( ) was great.

It's definitely taking the series toward a (hopefully) interesting Volume 5.

Also, going by the episode's title, was anyone else hoping that Claude would make an appearance? :P

i think it was too late for claire blood to heal nathan, sylar cut his neck making all the blood pour out his body would of died and his brain i guess

peter should be on top form in the power department

i have a feeling sylar will regain back to himself

niki back should bring some storylines with it

Overall, I thought this episode was quite a good way to finish the volume, though I don't actually like the 'Sylan' storyline. The issue with Claire's blood (which could have been used to heal Nathan) wasn't missing anything. There was no reason it wouldn't have worked, the writers simply choose not to include it.

Claires blood can bring back the dead, and heal the wounded. Making excuses about Nathan having too big a cut, or no oxygen in his brain etc is just that: excuses. The only reason Claires blood wouldn't be able to heal someone, is if they were a pile of bones. If there is a brain, and a heart, I'm pretty sure her blood will heal any wound. Nathan's throat included.

What will now annoy me, is that once Sylar gets his real memory back, that'll be the end of Nathan (unless they actually kept his body in storage, and bring him back to life later). Sylar will turn evil at some point again, and we'll loose Nathan because of it.

As for Tracy, I don't think she is going to be a bad person. I think she'll turn out to be good. That 'chat' she had with Micah had to count for something. Those 'four' that she killed with water were probably people who tortured her when she was being held in Building 26. No doubt she'll be after Danko soon, and as bullets pass through water, will be interesting to see how he'll try take her down.

PS: I don't see either, why someone didn't think to tranquilize Sylar earlier, and then burn him like they did. I'd be willing to put money on the fact that his ashes can't reform.

Edit: I doubt Peter has many more powers either. I'd be willing to bet he only 'took' the shapeshifting ability from Sylar. If he took them all, then he'd have first healed, and secondly, he'd have been able to fly. He couldn't do either. If he had any brains, he should have took that empathy power (can't remember what it is called, but in short, it allows him to take a power without cutting open their head). Looks like he is still only able to take one power at a time.

This was the most disappointing season finale I ever seen, with all the bells and whistle for it and what we got in the end a battle behind close doors literary, and a little scene with Peter tranquillising Sylar and then in the end WTF :? could they not just used Clairs blood to heal Nathan. And for God sake all I sow for a whole season was a storyline with Sylar getting powerful and more powerful by each season. And thinking back now writers hated when they made Peter very powerful and it seems now that they are repeating their mistake again. Sylar getting more powerful and tormenting the rest was just too boring to watch over and over, I think they should kill him once and for all this Season and change the Baddie, cause if they keep it up the same way and the writers are still in love with EMO Sylar and his weirdness I will stop watching this show!

Oh... and WTF "Sylan" who ever came up with this Sylar being Nathan needs to be hang from a tree, I can see from a mile that Sylar is going to remember who he is in mid season by probably shooting a lightning from his hands and asking wtf I cant do that, then slowly regaining his memories and blah blah blah.....this starts to look more like a cheesy soap with superpowers than live action comic, we havent seen a decent fight since IDK Season 1 maybe..... I think I should end here now before it gets out of hand

Unfortuantly the action sequences and fighter scenes will probably be decrease further next season, especially with network slashing the budget for next season and still keeping much of the cast.

The lack of fighting didn't bother me at all, Heroes has never been a show with lots of action, take the first season for example: it was great, but did it have action and fighting? Nah.

I hope they do the Sylan storyline well, I'd like to see him using his abilites thinking 'wtf i can't do that', and when he finds out he's Sylar he goes 'no I don't want to be him', instead of having him regain his abilities and memories, going full-Sylar-psychokiller again and starting over for the 4th time. No, this Sylan thing can be pretty refreshing if written well.

I think when you're suggesting that someone be hanged from a tree, you've already crossed some sort of line. :| Lighten up. Its a freakin' TV show.

Also, have you honestly been watching this show just to see some flashy fight scenes every couple of episodes? There have been some in the past but that has never been what this show has been about.

So peter is back to his full power, well unless he was stupid and did not absorb Sylar base line ability and then use that ability to absorb the rest of Sylar powers. I'm pretty sure he just took shape shifting, because he was pretty specific when he told Sylar that he bet he didn't think he'd take that one. Sylar's might take more time and effort to absorb people's powers. If you want a more logical explanation, Peter already took Sylar's base ability once and had that whole issue with the hunger and crap, so I'm sure he'd want to avoid that again.

Woooaah...loved that.

Great stuff from sylar and claire. Shame about peter and nate vs sylar, but I've given up hoping for it so I dont really mind. Mama petrelli was great in the little screen time she got and sylan is a gonna be a great storyline next volume. AS for ali larter (ill have some that!)

The whole claires blood thing, while I realised it, It didnt really bother me because the healing thing stopped death and that knocked any significance of death from Heroes. SO I'm glad they just left it behind.

Overall... very good, could of used ando more though

My expectations for "Heroes" have been fairly low of late. Like many others, I had hoped that Bryan Fuller's return to the writers' room would provide the jump start necessary to get the show back on track. Initially, it seemed to be happening, but the past few episodes have been uneven and full of the usual plot holes. So coming into the finale, I wasn't expecting much. In fact, given how often the writers for "Heroes" blow the landing each and every volume, lowered expectations seem fairly justified.

So it's not surprising that the writers failed to deliver an on-screen showdown between Nathan, Peter, and Sylar, with powers on display. As soon as the Petrelli brothers rushed in to take down Sylar, I knew those doors would close and we wouldn't see anything substantial, just the aftermath. A lot of pieces of the finale puzzle were missing in the same manner. In a way, there was simply too much story to tell.

Given some of the plot elements in "Caprica" and the most recent episode of "Dollhouse", this episode felt rather timely. If all the memories, experiences, and personality of an individual can be absorbed into someone, if the original dies, does that individual live on? Or is it a shadow of the original person, something that should never be attempted? And what about the original personality, buried and suppressed? There are shades of "Babylon 5" in there as well.

It seems like a bit of a cheat, yet another way to kill a character yet keep them around, but the end of the episode (technically, the beginning of Volume Five) clearly shows that it will be a little more complicated than that. I don't expect Sylar to remain caged for long; the character and actor are too popular for that. After all, Sylar always seems to be the best part of each volume's finale.

The plot twist did allow them to take the most powerful character around and put them under lock and key. In the process, the Company was reborn. With all the familiar characters standing around the pyre of Fake!Sylar, it brought to mind the Twelve and Adam Monroe. The finale makes everything seem happy, as if a major problem was averted, but this all seems like repeating the sins of the past. Matt was right: keeping Sylar alive at all is a terrible risk.

Not all of the plot elements were as interesting or logical. One can understand Angela's decision to use Sylar to keep Nathan around in relation to her recent talk about family and experience with Alice. Hiro's wear and tear from using his ability seems to come out of nowhere, and it feels like the writers just wanted to give Hiro back his ability long enough for it to be available when needed.

It's also a bit too much of a plot convenience for Peter to acquire just the right ability to fool Sylar. At least, that's what Peter made it seem like when he taunted Sylar in the limo. If Peter's drug-induced ability is to absorb another person's ability, only one at a time, wouldn't he have acquired Sylar's core ability? In other words, wouldn't Peter have what he acquired when grabbing Sylar's ability back in the third volume? It didn't quite add up.

The stage is set for the next volume, which may or may not play over the course of a shortened spring 2010 season (ala "Lost" and "24"). Does the title ("Redemption") refer to the characters, the writing staff, the producers, or all of the above? I suppose only time will tell.

That being said I was quite pleased with the finale' I would have liked to know more about Hiro's condition and I'm a little frustrated that Ando never supercharged him or Claire didn't give him a little blood. Also, he still can't teleport. What they did with Hiro was frustrating this season, and Peter but at least he is back.

I like that Sylar will be back to fight another day, he is a great villain.

May be the secrete service guy just knows there not senator in town that does not have a little dirty secrete that they do not want the public know about and so have learnt or been taught not to ignore it and not to ask questions about it. In this case is was a secrete daughter. It probably not the worst he seen in his career around in washington escorting the president around. How ever I was surprise how easy it was to convince him to go along with the plan with Parkman there to manipulate him into doing it.

Peter had no powers till he injected himself with the formula, which gave him that limited ability. When he touched Sylar in the finale, he now has the same kind of power he had when the series started.Actually, he hasn't.

If you read my original post, I said why then. If Peter acquired all of Sylar's abilities, he would have a) been able to fly after Sylar / Nathan (he told Claire he can't fly anymore) and b) Peter would have been able to heal his wounds. He was bleeding.

Therefore, Peter is stuck with the 'one power per time' as he has been since he injected himself with the formula again. Currently, Peter has the ability to shapeshift. Chances are, next time we see him, he'll have something different.


I liked it. It's a clever way to progress the story and keep both actors around.It is a clever way to keep both the actors around, the only problem we have no, is we know that at some point, Nathan's character is going to be gone for good. He practically is dead already. If Sylan heard that clock was out, how long will it be before he figures out more, and realizes the truth?


Since the problems are coming from the fact that he's using his powers in the first place, I'd imagine having Ando super-charge him would only make it worse.I don't know...

If you think about it, if Ando uses his ability on someone that already has the ability, surely it would take the load off Hiro? - I swear Noah called him 'Hero' in that episode too.....

Yes,,
this is an anooying episide, very entertaining, but the part of the Heroes them that went along with the Syler plan to take new form and bcome Nathan, was an idiotic plan and you mentioned some very big gaping plotholes and things that didn't make any sense. They probably could have brought Nathan back and Syler is still there. Hence, the clock scene at the end.. and Angela knew it was still Syler under that skin. A long list of sloppy writing.

of course maybe the future episide wil clean up these crzy threaded story lines and fix these problematic developments. Like I said half of the Heroes team is off their rocker and is defintely not thinking right..

I know some fans don't like messing with time, but I can see where Hiro's power could help. But now, poor Hiro can't use it.. or he dies.. Dammit, I really like changing/manipulating time, one of my all time Favorite sci-fi thingies..

Suresh was all "OMG HIRO IF YOU USE YOUR PAOWAR AGAIN YOU COULD DIE!1" sure enough Hiro used his power again... collapsed but didn't die and then he is just standing there fine all of a couple of hours later at Fake-Sylar's cremation ... Shouldn't he have been at a hospital or something?

They missed an opportunity for Hiro be comatose and do the equivalent of Quantum Leaping or something interesting like that.

I just think its funny how when it first happened people were like ''oh they're gonna use that all the time now this ruins heroes for me'' and now they're yelling ''use claire's blood you idiots!! if you don't you'll ruin heroes for me''.

I love how people absolutely hated when they introduced the whole Claire-blood-healing thing, and now they're trying to pretend it never happened but the fans are once again furious that they changed it back.

It seems to me that since Bryan Fuller came back, they've been trying to undo the mistakes made in season 2 and 3, and the healing blood is not the only one.

I never liked the Clair blood thing but the least they could do is be consistant I mean for g**s sake don't we deserve that at least.

1. No Claire, didn't your Dad tell you 'not' to get fooled by Sylar?

2. Liked the Petrelli double act.

3. Liked Peter's use of shapeshifting.

4. Not so sure about "Sylan".

5. What fate Hiro?

That was a pretty strong finale to vol 4. I was kinda hoping for an explanation of w/e is wrong with Hiro but I guess it'll have to wait.
The way they got rid of Sylar without actually killing him was pretty clever.
I was hoping Peter would get his powers back when they went to fight Sylar but it doesn't look like he'll actually need them... at least for now :)

Nice start to volume 5 too.

I too would have liked to hear an explanation with Hiro.. Even if it was only an initial diagnosis..

On the sylar issue, while it was inventive, i doubt it will stand for long. Sylar seems to be rather strong willed..


I really think that finale was amazing. I thought it would be Nathan to die, but what they did to Sylar, I never saw coming. I really can't wait until next season to see what happens next.

I was saddened to see nathan die for good.. You would have thought either Noah or Claire would have thought to inject him with her blood to ensure he got healed up.


So Nathan/sylar hybrid is the new enemy next season fun. As well as with water lady killing random people. And the company is reborn. I am so hoping that next season everyone is together from the first episode, an the first seen is them all having some sought of board meeting discussing the company, with them about to authorised there first mission.

I too would find that sweet, if the first ep for S4, shows the new "Company" having a sort of board meeting..


Again the fight between nethan and peter and sylar was rubbish. I think they should of shown more and made it bigger and left at the drowning sequence at the end for next season and use that money for the sylara and peter and Nathan fight scene.

It was rather crap.. All we saw was claire getting tossed out the room, some sounds of crashing in the backround, Claire looking through the slit in the door at a 'glow', peter walking out (well more like stumbling out", nathan getting tossed back in and sylar showing up and TK slitting his throat..


So peter is back to his full power, well unless he was stupid and did not absorb Sylar base line ability and then use that ability to absorb the rest of Sylar powers.


It looked like all he took was the shape shifting. BUT maybe he took more. Who know's..


As to Claire blood we were never told to the extent that it could be used repaired damage bodies, or how long it takes to take effect. But again they should at least tried. And just use Parkman to make the forget. Which would means that the company started on the same foundations as the previous one, lies and deceit.

Exactly. Seems Angela doesn't want to learn from mistakes...


And it also obvious that Sylar brain with claire healing power would eventually repair what parkman did.

True. Plus with all his powers, surely he has absorbed something that would help him free himself earlier..


Well all in all, a decent wrap up to season 3.
