Storyline

In the season finale, Ando fears his friend is powerless to keep him alive, so he steals Hiro's sword and goes after Sylar, himself. Nathan comes between Peter and Claire. Jessica tries to find her son after Lindeman and DL get killed and finds Nikki occupying the same space as herself. Mohindar does everything in his power to keep Molly alive, even though Noah Bennett wants her dead, thinking she's a missing link. And it all sets the stage for the showdown between Sylar and Peter.

Goofs

After the fight with Sylar when Peter starts to become radioactive, there is a far off shot of Peter glowing and we can see the bright yellow of his glow emphasized on the ground. However, in the next shot we are right next to Peter and there is no glow on the ground at all, only on his hands. See more »

Terrible!
31 May 2007 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

I usually don't do this, but this episode was so bad, I just had to post a comment. And my critics go to the direction. This particular 23. episode is so pathetic and badly done it constantly jumps into your face. Look, the characters are made as if they are stupid. They are pure unintelligent. I asked my self a couple of times "Why? How come they don't do that or do this?" And Peter has a scene in the middle of NYC and there's nobody in the street. Have you ever been in NY? And the final scene is also 'empty', but immediately after it, people are walking all around. Where were they a minute a go?! And the lady sugars her coffee and leaves the scene. What!? Allan (director) please: you have to do your job (better). Peolpe are not that stupid or that illogical. All in all, the episode starts very promising and it gives you something, but as it goes on and develops, it just goes downhill. I'm so sorry THAT was the last episode of the season.
