Storyline

In order to change the course of history, a scared and cynical Peter Petrelli travels back in time from four years to the day his brother Nathan revealed the existence of the super-humans and was the one who shot him. In attempting to capture future Peter, Matt Parkman gets teleported to a desolate African landscape. In Japan, Hiro takes control of his father's company when, courtesy of a DVD, he and Ando receive instructions from Hiro's late father about a deadly secret contained in the office safe. Hiro can't help but open the safe and the contents are promptly stolen by a "speedster"; a woman with super-fast speed called Daphne. Meanwhile, Nathan undergoes a religious experience while recovering from the shooting and is offered a new job in Congress by a shady blond government woman named Tracy Strauss, someone who looks remarkably like the late Niki Sanders. Elsewhere, Sylar confronts Claire, whose alone in her house, in a bid to get hold of her powers. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When Syler cuts off the top of Clair's head, why isn't her hair cut off as well? When he replaces her skullcap, long hair is still attached. In order for her hair to have remained unscathed, he would have had to have levitated it and spun her around as he made the cut. See more »

far away from season one...
23 September 2008 | by (Vienna) – See all my reviews

Though season two looked pale, I had hopes for the third "Heroes" volume. These hopes crashed during the first two episodes.

One point I'd criticize is the missing build up. You may expect one action sequence following the other - without substance and content. Character development (which in my opinion is one strength of season one) almost fully disappeared. While during season two the characters already turned more and more black and white this trend seems to find continuation. The story at several moments gets bloodcurdling stupid (soap opera style). Not that "Heroes" is known for realism. Only it can be too much none-sense and this show deserves better.

In a short: Pointless and very confused start of the new "Heroes" season. Perhaps some writers were still striking. Eventually if you prefer action that lacks content you might enjoy it but for your own sake do not try to think about it.
