Ali Larter on Tonight’s Heroes Finale and Tracy Strauss in Season 4

If you were at the movies this weekend, you might have caught Heroes’ Ali Larter in the #1 movie in the country, “Obsessed”. Well Ali still has her day job, which is Heroes. While on the Jimmy Fallon show last week to promote “Obsessed”, Ali talked about the Heroes Season 3 finale, and the possible return of her character Tracy Strauss for Season 4. VERY MILD SPOILERS in the video after the jump.

In short, Ali says that her character is still very much alive, and the Season 3 finale will hint at what’s in store for her, including the evolution of Tracy Strauss’ freezing powers, which will now involve water and steam, apparently.

    Very mild spoilers but it’ll be good to see her come back. Her acting is pretty damn good and the character is a very good one to have around.

    What was the point of a fight that no one could see?

    How did Peter get Sylars abilities and how did sylar get flight?

    The So a lot of you called Sylar is Nathan and Nathan is Sylar.

    You know what’s going to happen he is going to find out what Matt done and go after everyone who had a part in this.

    In the end did it look like Peter was eyeing Nathan pretty hard?

    • SomeGuy

      The point, my friend, is a very simple one. Lower rating = less money = less visual effects = more focus on characters shape shifting than seeing an epic battle between 3 characters we’ve been waiting to see brawl.

      Likely, Sylar will come back, and probably will go after Matt Parkman. But I think, other than Sylar, Matt is probably the most dangerous of them all by the way his abilities have evolved and could actually stand a chance against Sylar. Yes, if Peter gets his full ability back then Matt and Peter can most likely kick Sylar’s a$$ lol.

    • SomeGuy

      Also, Sylar doesn’t have flight. He can also control himself with Telekinesis and floated down. Sylar doesn’t need or want Nathan’s ability, plus he was kind of in a hurry so he didn’t really have time to take it.

      • Cody

        no, i think sylar was in fact using flight. i think he obtained in from empathy like he did with shapeshifting and doyle’s power (which he used on claire.) many of the powers in this show have their own sound effects. telekinesis has that sort of windswept sound, matt’s mind control and mind reading has that certain sound i can;t really describe, nathan’s flight has sort of a bird sound, which you could hear when sylar landed. that leads me to believe sylar was actually flying. also, when he was controlling claire, there was a sort of child-laughter sound, which makes me think it’s doyle’s, although i never actually paid much attention to any sounds from his power. watch the episode on nbc again if you don’t believe me, but this is what i think happened.

      • SomeGuy

        Yah that’s likely the case, but I don’t believe so, personally. I was said before most of what Sylar can do (back in season one) was a result of his telekinesis. He’s mastered it so well. In season one he flew from a stand-off with Matt Parkman after trying to kill Molly Walker, he slowed his fall from Homecomming when Peter took him down, which he also did for Peter in Volume 3, and he can also likely move people with telekinesis as well. If you think about it, flight and “puppeteering” seem very inferier (sp?) to telekenisis and doesn’t fit Sylar’s character to get powers that he doesn’t need when he already has the superior one. He wants power, and he already has it. Killing Nathan was all he needed to do to get even more power, he didn’t need flight.

      Done!! Finished!! No More!!! This show now officially sucks applesauce!!! Sylar/Nathan??? Are you kidding me??? What a waste of time!! Next season I’ll find something (anything) to do for the hour that Hero’s is on. Big Pauly

    You know, when I first saw her at the end of the episode I kind of thought it was the third sister (note that Niki and Tracy were two of three triplets given power by Zimmerman).

  • billy-the-kid

    In the end with Peter and Sylar what was going on?

    At first it looked Like Peter had the same power as his father but Sylar still has all his abilities.

    Sorry but Tracy is the new villain is lame why not give us someone new. They should have a real villain like “the joker” from the last Batman movie. Anyone agree or do I stand alone?

    • SomeGuy

      You’re alone. Heroes isn’t that kind of comicbook style show. If that were the case, they’d be wearing costumes (please don’t recall Ando’s costume lol)

    • mama3

      I think she is a good villian with a lot of people (including Nathan- well “Sylar-as-Nathan”) to go after. Plus if she comes in contact with Micah she will have an inner-battle to face. I think it should be a good story line.

  • Think Fast

    I think the Tracy as a villain will be a fine line, esp after what happened in Cold Snap. It will mean that she could easily go either way, esp if they bring Micah back in. As for Sylar/Nathan, I think it will make an interesting story, esp if they basically have “Nathan” learn he is also Sylar and starts a multi-personality thing (which was hinted that Sylar might be developing in I Am Sylar), so they can keep Nathan on and make the Sylar character even more unpredictable (who will he be next week, Sylar or Nathan! dun dun dun).

    I think Mohinder will start to have a larger and legit role in the show by trying to help Hiro. Claire will become an agent, possibly daddies partner even. They will bring back Claude (due to fan reqests) at least one episode in the next season, and possibly the Haitian (and possibly just to off him sadly). I think Peter will either have all of Sylar’s powers or possibly if he learns to use the ability as SYlar did, “fix” his DNA back to his original power (someone else suggested that)… or they might keep him as a cunning one at a time heroe with a large store of potential powers in Nathan/Sylar for him to use.

  • SomeGuy

    it just dawned on me that Peter has Sylar’s original ability, thanks for reminding me. That could very well be the logical answer to Peter getting his powers back.

    They better find something good to do with Hiro. As one of the most popular characters on the show, the way his character is heading isn’t a good road.

    And what happened to Claude? I thought he was supposed to be in this episode? What’s the significance of the title exactly? “An Invisible Thread”

    “An Invisible Thread”? Did you not listen to what Mohinder was narrating?

  • Clark1250

    Good one Paul and I have to say this was one of the greatest episodes and I think Peter has all his abilitys back why else would Sylar morph right back into his old self? Plus I bet Nathan/sylar will come to know who he is and that is old tracy come on now water controll think about it. So wonder what they will have Mohinder and every character barely mentioned doing next season?
