In case you’ve been living in a cave, you know that the final two episodes of Heroes Season 3 begins next week with “I am Sylar”. That leads into the final episode of the season, “An Invisible Thread”. We already told you about a major plot from the last episode, but here are some more news about that major death we’ve been hearing about. Also, a lot of Heroes castmembers will be jetting off to visit fans at conventions, and we have info on who will be going where.
First up, William Keck over at TVGuide had this about the season finale, including the much-talked about death of a major character who has been on the show since Season 1:
A show insider says the April 27 season finale will be a big episode for the seemingly indestructible baddie. “After taking on the shape-shifting ability that further complicates his identity crisis, Sylar is responsible for a hero’s death,” says my mole, adding that Sylar’s “comeuppance will be poetic.” Apparently Sylar’s victim is a hero who’s been on the show since the first season—and because I’m hearing Hayden Panettiere (Claire), Milo Ventimiglia (Peter), Masi Oka (Hiro) and Ali Larter (Tracy) will all be back for Season 4, we should perhaps be worried about Sendhil Ramamurthy (Mohinder), Adrian Pasdar (Nathan) or Greg Grunberg (Matt).
The consensus among many Heroes fans seems to be Nathan getting the shaft for good. Then again, how many times has Nathan supposed to have died, but didn’t? And besides, the character is just going in circles now. Then again, you can say the same thing about Mohinder Suresh…
Speaking of Sylar, BroadwayWorld.com has news that Mister Gray’s mother (played by Ellen Greene, pictured below) will making a return appearance in next week’s episode, “I am Sylar”.
Onto Heroes convention news. Fans of puppet master Doyle will be able to catch the actor that plays him, David H. Lawrence over at the Xanadu Convention in Las Vegas from April 17th through 19th, where he’ll be appearing with others from the sci-fi, horror, and fantasy world. Head over here for more information.
Meanwhile, across the pond the Heroes-themed Eclipse 3 Convention is gearing up for May, and Heroes castmembers that will be appearing include Greg Grunberg (Matt Parkman), Ashley Crow (Mrs. Bennet) and Ntare Mwine (Usutu). They tell me more guests will be included in future dates, though no names are known as of this writing. This year’s event will be held at The Park Inn Hotel in Northampton, UK.
