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 »

Quotes

Peter Petrelli: [as he's starting to lose control of the radiation, and sees Claire approaching with a gun] . Do it! Do it! You're the only one, Claire!
Claire Bennet: [sobbing] Tell me there's another way! Please!
Peter Petrelli: Shoot me! There is no other way!
Nathan Petrelli: [swoops down from the sky and lands between Claire and Peter] Yes there is, Claire. The future isn't written in stone.
[gently lowers the gun Claire is holding]
Peter Petrelli: I took his power, Nathan. I can't control it! I can't do anything!
Nathan Petrelli: [walks calmly towards Peter] I'm not leaving you Peter. ...

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.
