Noah, Claire, Angela, and Meredith find themselves trapped at the Primatech by Sylar who locks them in the building and subjects them all to various mind games. Meanwhile, Matt, Daphne, and Ando seek refuge at the Mendez loft where Daphne plans to steal a sample of the power-giving formula to give to Ando who wants to rescue the powerless Hiro still trapped 16 years in the past, who continues to struggle to find his true origins with his younger self. Back in the present, Peter faces off against Nathan, Tracy and the security detail at Pinehurst to stop Mohinder from reproducing the formula, and finds allies in the form of Knox as well as Flint who also want to stop the production of the formula, leading to a fiery showdown for all.

Matt explains how moving faster than the speed of light will allow someone to move back into time, but this is incorrect. According to the Special Theory of Relativity when moving faster than the speed of light, the time dilation will become a complex number instead of a negative number. See more »

Nathan Petrelli: It's not dad's plan anymore, Pete, it's ours.
Peter Petrelli: What're you talking about?
Nathan Petrelli: The plan. It's ours. All of us, making the world a better place. Don't tell me you're gonna try and get in the way of that.
Peter Petrelli: You sound just like him.

Heroes...but not all
25 December 2008 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

It is easy to understand how many people won't get what complexities of human mind they want to approach. First of all the series may be named HEROES, but it has only two people that fulfill this aspect, Hiro Nakamura and Peter Petrelli, they are so alike, they will always fight for the well-being of their families and friends, the other characters are just humans with powers, I agree that maybe the way they present this changes is sometimes too superficial and fast, maybe because every volume is too short and has too many things to show, but they can improve that. Dual was a chapter in which they present the characters as humans, capable of anything, could Sylar be good? can Nathan be evil?, of course, just like we can, the cliffhanger is not only if Sylar will come back, I guess the most important part of next volume should be how to return Hiro his powers, because he is the balance of the show, of the whole plot, he grew up to be a hero, and should have his powers back.
