Mohinder Suresh: [voice over] When a change comes, some species feel the urge to migrate. They call it zugunruhe. A pull of the soul to a far-off place. Following a scent in the wind, a star in the sky. The ancient message comes, calling the kindred to take flight and gather together. Only then can they hope to survive the cruel season to come.

Heroes: Hiros is another excellent episode of the best new series
24 October 2006 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

At the end of the last episode, Future Hiro contacted Peter on a subway train with Hiro having stopped time for everything and everyone around them. He instructs Peter, "Save the cheerleader, save the world." Then he leaves as everything moves again. In Las Vegas, Claire's dad and his black assistant are holding Peter's brother Nathan in custody but Peter manages to fly off before they can do anything to him. Present Hiro and Ando are thrown out of a car near a diner after being beaten by guards from a casino. Ando goes while Hiro stays at the diner. Hiro looks out the window and sees Nathan landing in the desert with nothing but his pajama pants. Nathan comes and orders some food and a shirt while Hiro introduces himself and mentions his powers. Nathan then offers Hiro a ride. Meanwhile, Matt the cop's wife is on the phone worried about her husband when she sees him on the couch waking up. He's been gone for a day and doesn't remember much. He reads his wife's mind and eventually fixes her dinner and they start to make love. Claire the cheerleader and the quarterback are in the hospital being treated for injuries. Claire tells her dad what happened at the bonfire. The dad confronts the quarterback and threatens him, then has his black assistant do something to his mind. When Claire tries to apologize to the quarterback for wrecking his car, the quarterback doesn't even know who she is. Niki the stripper returns home to find the police there looking for her ex-husband believing he's there. Ando trespasses and gets held for questioning. Niki lets him go then we find her ex hiding where no one has found him yet. Matt goes to a convenience store to get his wife some ice cream when he hears a customer's thoughts of robbing. He confronts him and convinces him to put his gun down on a shelf then takes the gun himself and frightens the customers before passing out. Ando and Hiro reunite and call Issac the artist at his home where Peter is finishing Issac's painting of the cheerleader running from something that's covered in blood. Peter answers the phone with Hiro on the other line but since it's Present Hiro technically they haven't even met yet...Another intriguing episode with some revelations that are sure to be answered in future installments. Most entertaining characters in this episode are Hiro and Matt. Most loathsome is definitely the quarterback. This is the best new series on television right now, so by all means check it out if you haven't seen it already!
