Heroes News Round-up: Sylar’s Comeuppance, Convention News, Cast Updates

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. Head over here for more information.

    My money’s on Nathan being in grave danger yet again. I can see Angela seeking redemption for not protecting her son enough.

    I think that the goofy shape shifting twist at the end of the season will be Sylar shape shifting into a woman, to become pregnant, thus having little Noah.

    • blaccjacc

      Yeah…..that would be sick….NO DEAL

    • http://www.myspace.com/tarot999 Tarot

      I’m still thinking he becomes a roach not unlike the one we saw throughout season 1

    • mattt

      That would be creepy, disturbing and outright awsome at the same time. That might make sense too actually, because sylar is gunna turn into someone ‘shocking’ (elle)

    Why is it a foregone conclusion that the guy getting blasted is Nathan? From pic #2, Peter is the Petrelli brother on Sylar’s right. I don’t see anything in pic #3 to clarify which Petrelli it is, except that… this Petrelli SEEMS TO BE ON SYLAR’S RIGHT.

    All Peter has to do is, what, touch or get near Sylar? Then he’s got all those powers that Sylar has–which would explain future Peter’s freaky abilities.

    • macmikey

      Having made that last remark… a Peter who can’t die and a Sylar who can’t die remind me of an old Star Trek: TOS episode (“The Alternative Factor,” first season), about a character named Lazarus who has an antimatter counterpart. In the end, the only way to save the universe is to trap both Lazarus’s (Lazaruses? Lazari?) in some realm between the matter and anti-matter universes, fighting each other for all eternity. That was the one TOS episode that kept me up at night when I was a kid… still gives me the creeps…

    • Serecho

      it is nathan look at peter he wears the darker pants and you can see that it is nathan

      • FutureVillain

        Agreed with Nathan in this one but that doesnt mean he will die with only one blast, but if he is being charged too much he might, like when Elle killed Caitlin’s brother Rick. The only character to ever survived a blast from Elle, except Peter, Claire and Sylar that have or had regeneration, is West from 2×09 when he tooks Claire before Noah is killed.

        From the pics that doesnt mean Nathan will die in that part, but for the creators it would be necesary if one of the character gets killed, cause of the two brothers and characters, Peter is the only one who can defeat Sylar from all characters, well soo to speak, making obvious that they may kill him.

        Speaking of Nathan’s possible fate, he may get blasted and fall down unconscious, or badly wounded and he dies after Peter and Sylar finish the fight, and has his last words with Peter and Claire. My guess is that Peter throws Sylar to the window behind him while he is blasting Nathan, the fight finish and returning with the Nathan’s last moments, it will be hard to endure loosing him since he is a characters to hate and next to love, if they kill him I preffer the show comes to an end the next season, since it has been spreading that it may be short.

        Besides, for the record, killing him, being near Claire, could be stupid, since she knows that she can heal him or reviving with her blood, remember at the beggining of season 3 when she wants to go to Odessa, Tx to heal him when F-Peter shoot him and he refured that Claire’s assistance in helping Nathan to heal. Poor guy, in total he has died or about to die 5 times from all characters, this time he may refuse to be saved by Claire in decide its now his time, and accept his death, that coul be touching but still sad for fans.

        Nathan reminds me of Krillin from Dragonball Z as far as death counts throughout the series.
        I hope he makes it to the end though. I was assuming someone else might die and those spoiler pictures are just to make us think he was. Buut, then again, nobody’s really been that close to Sylar’s two choppy fingers and survived to tell about it other than the people who can regenerate. Even Ando was far enough away.

        Anyways.. I want Nathan to live, but I suppose his death would be better than them deciding to bring back the Haitian just to have Sylar off him. That would suck.

  • xericho

    i think the shapeshifting ability also has a side effect like sylars hunger side effect of his ability. the shapeshifting ability could have a side effect of making you believe youre the person you’re shapeshifting into or just plaing making you schizophrenic, maybe absorbing memories of the copied one?

    like x-mens rogue perhaps?

    i seriously thing each ability should have a side effect, the imbalanced ones anyways, or else theres no good plot anymore.
    (like elles waterphobia or the spike to the nape for claire and sylar)

    • UnsungHero

      FINALLY! Someone who agrees with me!
      Hiro’s nosebleed seems to suggest that his powers have limits too. I hope they take note on your comment and really take the opportunity to flesh out the limits of Hiro’s power because for now, it seems to come and go as the plot demands.

      Even if it was something like Hiro can only use his ability so many times in a day…just whatever. An official explanation for his on-again-off-again powers needs to be implemented and fast!

    I don’t know maybe it will be Micah for some bizzare reason but I bet in reality it is Nathan.

  • anonymous :)

    Yeah it is possible that Nathan might die but I think if they keep bringing him back the show is going to become a tad boring. We know that Sylar and Nathan are going to battle it out in the end of this season, but Danko isn’t sure which side he should be on because he knows Sylar is a murderer and a liar but he also knows that Nathan is sort of a hypocrit because he’s locking people up who are just like him, and that’s not fair. he also hates him because a lot of his friends have died fighting the heroes, as he’s pointed out in previous episodes.
    Sandra shouldn’t die because I think that her character could do so much more, if they work in a particular way she could actually save the show. Like tricking Sylar into going somewhere where claire could be, and then stabbing him and burning him.. haha I know I’m soo violent!
    Noah has to stay because he plays a really important part, and I think there’s some part of him that we haven’t actually seen yet, all his guilt and family problems could eventually tie into the series finale.
    Peter CANNOT die, if he did i would never watch the show again, he and claire are some of the more gentle characters, who bring some mystery to the show- like, why is Claire so special? We know she’s the catalyst but Sylar clearly knows something else about her that we dont and she wants to find out.
    And Peter can travel back and forwards in time, we’ve already seen claire attempt to shoot him, but he moved at the last minute- lucky break! So what’s gonna happen now when he travels back?
    And I don’t think Mohinder should die either, although he’s served his purpose I think we could see more of him and maya together, perhaps working together to drug Sylar, once Mohinder gets over the thing with his dad and the government.
    And we should DEFINATELY see more of Lyle Bennet. He barely has a part in heroes as it is! Being Claire’s brother is hardly a position in the series. We need to see him either commit crime or help Claire and her mum defeat Sylar and keep him away from their family.
    LOL I DON’T WANT ANY CHARACTERS TO LEAVE HEROES OR KILLED OFF BUT IF I HAD TO CHOOSE ONE I WOULD SAY MOHINDER BECAUSE HE HAS ALREADY DONE HIS JOB AND WHO KNOWS, MAYBE MAYA COULD TAKE OVER FROM HIS WORK. WE’LL HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE. LOL DUNNO WHY I WROTE IN CAPITALS!
