Michael Ausiello over at Entertainment Weekly has written two more scoops on the upcoming Heroes Season 4 (set to premiere in September), including more information on Claire’s relationship with her roommie (and yes, it appears to be of the romantic variety), and something about Nathan’s childhood. He also has the definitive word from Hayden Panettiere herself about rumors that she wanted out of the show at the end of last season. In a word, it’s not true. So let’s move on to the scoops.
On Claire and her new college roommie Annie, to be played by Rachel Melvin:

He adds “at least that’s the plan”, perhaps saying it could change? The last time Heroes attempted anything involving the sexuality of a character, it was pretty much a disaster. Remember Zach?
About Nathan and his past:
Remember me telling you that producers were casting an 11-year-old version of Nathan? Well, thanks to Adrian Pasdar, now we know why! “I absorb a memory from an article of clothing that sends me back in time to when I was 11,” he explains. “Something happened to young Nathan but old Nathan doesn’t remember it. How can that be? It has to do with a character we have met before.”
Remember, it’s not really Nathan, it’s actually Sylar in Nathan’s body, thinking he’s Nathan…
