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 look for allies and finds one in a very subdued version of Sylar. 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. In the present, Hiro and Ando are locked away in a Level 2 prison cell where their situation starts to drive a riff between them. 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

Goofs

Future Peter is killed by Claire, not because he never absorbed her power to heal (he did in the first season) but because the Haitian blocked his regeneration power. Claire knows that she can definitely block it by putting something in the back of his neck, like hers was blocked by a piece of wood in season one. She even tells the younger Peter she can kill him with a bullet in his neck. See more »

Quotes

Claire Bennet: You're not gonna kill me.

What's happening to Heroes?
7 October 2008 | by SuikenUserSee 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.
