22 September 2008 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I know i should give it a 10 because it's my favorite show, but still it's not a pice of art... ti'll that time i'll give a maximum of 9 out of 10.

I can wait to see this one because I've already been reading the plot that goes like this: Nathan's shooter is revealed. Elsewhere, Sylar visits Claire; Hiro and Ando guard a dangerous family secret and fret over the bleak future involving a dubious woman (Brea Grant); and Suresh makes an important breakthrough.

Every single episode ends like this... i hate when they do that!But still they got to push u to watch the next and to not forget what happen in the last one... i meen how could u ? :))

Now this should be interesting... hihihi! :D
