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.

Trivia

Shooting in a public plaza for the climax posed several problems. They were not allowed to begin filming until after 7pm. The two children involved were only allowed to stay on set till midnight. And while it appears that most of the cast finally assembles together for the first time in this scene, logistically most of them had to be filmed separately due to availability issues. Overall, the scene took five days to be filmed. See more »

Goofs

After Nathan flies a nuclear charged Peter into the air he explodes, yet the lights and the power in New York City remain undisrupted. All of the power should have gone out due to the Compton effect. When a nuclear explosion occurs in the atmosphere, it creates an E.M.M.A. pulse; a photon wave of up to 50 Billion Megawatts. (Such a feat was displayed in an earlier episode when Ted Sprague shorted out the power in the Primatech Paper building in order to escape.) See more »

Mohinder Suresh: [narrating] We dream of hope. We dream of change. Of fire, of love, of death. And then it happens. The dream becomes real. And the answer to this quest, this need to solve life's mysteries finally shows itself. Like the glowing light of a new dawn.

A let down.......
5 June 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Too much expectations from the last episode..... it seems the producers were in a hurry to finish the season.... the story in this episode could have been faster and a huge battle between sylar n peter was expected with a lot of special effects(like 5 yrs down the line!!)... the earlier episodes set the tempo but the last episode terribly failed at that....the makers of the show it seems ran short of money for the ending.... sylar was eliminated (not sure) tamely n there could have been several other ways to stop peter (throw him in the ocean..... or he could have flown himself.... hiro could have teleported him in the middle of a desert..... or simply outcold him by hitting at the back of the head!!!).. tooo many flaws n bad action in this episode...... all in all a poor ending to a brilliant TV series.....
