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

When the recap is shown Noah fires the gun at Thompson head and kills him, with one shot. In the previous episode he fires the gun twice to kill him. See more »

an underwhelming end to a great season
22 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this season started out so well. it produced some of the best sci-fi /superhero story lines and characters i have seen in my 45 years of TV shows i can remember(i am 50).the show was way too short. the fight between sylar,peter and hiro was almost laughable.these are super-powered beings.there should have been more carnage,chaos and drama.Tim kring brags that he has never read a comic-book.maybe he should. NBC should have shelled-out some major bucks for this. this is their only real hit. they should have gone all-out to make this one for the record books.maybe Alan Moore's miracle man finale of Olympus(issue#15) should be consulted as a reference.if Mr. kring is going to mine a genre,even one he does not respect,he should do some research.
