Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Ando Masahashi (as James Kyson Lee)


Having time-traveled four years in the future, the future Peter shows his younger counterpart that people have access to drugs that give them various super powers and some of them will destroy the world. Past Peter is forced to run from the dark and evil future versions of Claire, Daphne, and Knox, all of whom work as killers for government agencies to track him down.

From his spot in Africa, Matt Parkman has a vision of his future in four years in which he is married to Speedster Daphne and is still looking after Molly Walker whom also works for the agencies.

Tracy learns more about her origins from Dr. Zimmerman, and Nathan receives more tips from the ghost of Mr. Linderman over his position for congress. Also, Mohinder learns that the powers he gave to himself are ... Written by Anonymous

The title is taken from J. Robert Oppenheimer's famous quote of the Bhagavad Gita after the first atomic detonation, "I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." See more »


Future Peter is ultimately killed by Claire because he never absorbed her power to heal. Peter's power of absorption works by him coming into close proximity with other people with abilities. He should have absorbed Claire's ability when he froze time in the season 3 premiere and took her gun. See more »

What's happening to Heroes?
7 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It seems to me that the Heroes writing staff has simply run out of steam. I personally still think the first season of Heroes was probably the best single season of any TV drama in the past decade. However, season 2 was iffy at best and season 3 is proving to be even worse. The writers of Heroes seem to think that the more superpowers, character deaths and reappearances (in one form or another), and blood relationships between characters that are revealed, the better. However, at this point the show is becoming an uninteresting mess of characters in the present and future who flip flop from one moral extreme to the other, often for no explained reason. As this goes on, I find it increasingly difficult to care what happens to any of the heroes (or villains, depending on how you look at it). I had high hopes for this season to revamp the series and leave behind the lackluster plot twists of the second season but despite ignoring many of the events that occurred last fall the show has only managed to come up with more contrived interactions between people with special abilities.
