Heroes is already two episodes into its current 5-episode arc that will conclude with Episode 11, “Powerless”, which may or may not be the final Heroes episode of Season 2 — If the writer’s strike continues, then yes, but if the strike is settled by then, then no. Since we may all get our Heroes Season 2 finale sooner than we expected (or, obviously, wanted), let’s look on ahead at the three remaining episodes in what might very well be a very shortened Season 2.
Season 2 Episode 9 (2.09): “Cautionary Tales” November 19, 2007
Convinced that the Company is close to finding them, H.R.G. (Jack Coleman) prepares the family to run — but Claire (Hayden Panettiere) has other ideas. Meanwhile, Hiro (Masi Oka) returns from the past and learns of his father’s death. Grief-stricken, he flings himself into past and makes a stunning personal discovery. After a charged first encounter with Elle (Kristen Bell), Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) makes a decision that could change lives. Meanwhile, Matt (Greg Grunberg) struggles with his expanding mental abilities and Maya (Dania Ramirez) and Alejandro’s (Shalim Ortiz) relationship is tested as they travel with Sylar (Zachary Quinto). Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) meets someone who could unlock his past.
Season 2 Episode 10 (2.10): “Truth and Consequences” November 26, 2007
Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) travels to Primatech Paper in Texas with his new friend to destroy the virus, which will kill 93 percent of the world’s population in the future — or so he believes. Niki (Ali Larter) returns to Micah (Noah Gray-Cabey) with bad news. To right a wrong, Monica (Dana Davis) puts her abilities to the test while Hiro (Masi Oka) goes after his father’s killer. Meanwhile, Matt (Greg Grunberg) uses his mental abilities to track down the last person in the company photo. In addition, Nathan (Adrian Pasdar) learns his brother is alive. Outside of New York, Maya (Dania Ramirez) must choose between Alejandro (Shalim Ortiz) and Sylar (Zachary Quinto).
Season 2 Episode 11 (2.11): “Powerless” December 3, 2007
Deep below Primatech Paper in Odessa, TX, Peter’s (Milo Ventimiglia) reunion with Nathan (Adrian Pasdar) turns violent when the brothers, Matt (Greg Grunberg) and Hiro (Masi Oka) all clash thanks to Adam (David Anders) and his pursuit of the deadly Shanti Virus. After watching his heroic cousin captured by a street gang, Micah (Noah Gray-Cabey) turns to the one person who can help him save Monica (Dana Davis) — his mom (Ali Larter). Meanwhile, Maya (Dania Ramirez) tragically learns how much of a monster Sylar (Zachary Quinto) really is during his kidnapping of Molly (Adair Tishler) and Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy). Meanwhile, Elle (Kristen Bell) decides to play hero to get back into her father’s (Stephen Tobolowsky) good graces.
