No real big surprise here. Did anyone really expect Kring and company to kill off David Anders’ Adam Monroe for good? There is the making of a great villain in the character, and definitely someone more interesting than the speedster girl they’re going to be introducing as Hiro’s nemesis in Season 3. Really, why would you swap Monroe for a new villain when Monroe is right there, waiting to resurface from his gravely prison, and pick up right where the two left off trying to destroy Hiro for the sins of the past? Boggles the mind.
Anyways, about David Anders’ impending return to Heroes Season 3, TV Guide’s newest spoiler dude Matt Mitovich had this to say in response to a question:
Please tell me we haven’t seen the last of David Anders as Adam Monroe on Heroes. — Stacie
Matt Mitovich: No, Heroes fans have not seen the last of Anders. And that’s the truth. (Now would you be so kind as to tell my sons that good things come to those who say please?)
It sure looks like Season 3 is going to be jam packed with villains. Anders is back, there are 12 new villains, the speedster Daphne… By the time the film hits Season 4, scorecards will be necessary to keep track of who is new, who has died, who has died and come back, who has died for good, and who is adopted, and who relates to who…
On the bright side, at least David Anders will be back. He talked more about his return to the show here.
