The Heroes Season 4 Major Character Death Revealed. SPOILERS!!!

So yes, it’s now official. Remember those rumors we posted earlier of a major Heroes character from the first season biting it for good in Season 4? Well Nikki Finke over at Deadline Hollywood Daily spoiled the surprise earlier tonight, and as a result the other outlets who have been teasing the news, including Kristin over at E! Online, have confirmed it. THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO TURN AWAY BEFORE THE IDENTITY OF THE PERSON IS REVEALED BELOW.

The big news is that Adrian Pasdar has been let go from the show, and didn’t know his character Nathan Petrelli was going to get a final death until he actually read the script. Ouch.

Which begs the question: how is this supposed to be a “water cooler” moment? Nathan Petrelli died last year, and was just living on through Sylar. I don’t see how this is supposed to be shocking. Heck, the only reason it’s even a minor surprise to me is that they’ll actually kill him off for good this time after teasing it for the last three years.

So, Nathan Petrelli will be meeting his maker for good in an upcoming Heroes episode. Good decision? Bad decision?

    They already killed him. Why is this suprising or relevent?

  • jodeo

    Not surprised.
    It does mean Sylar will reunite with his body, er mind. So what comes of Matt Parkman? Can he use his mental powers to get out of trouble?

    It'd be great to have a cliff hanger involving Gabiel's dad. Sylar has no nemesis of his own. Peter? Nope. Yet Peter once had 'the hunger' but that's gone.

  • SomeGuy

    So they're keeping the tradition of killing him off every season eh? Meh, I'm sure they'll find a way to bring him back and kill him in season 5. It's just expected now.

  • stillaware

    I just hope the show cancellation rumor is FAKE, because this show is too good to only have 4 seasons. And yeah, the water cooler moment was last season when Sylar slit Nathan's throat, THAT was unexpected.

  • bradc78

    where is mohinder? is he coming back?

  • stillaware

    Watch the newest episode and you'll find out at the end 8P

  • nolanabrahams

    So you mean to tell me that Peter learns to live with that hunger he had or is he going to loose that ability of his?

    You can say that again, this show is truly that good to only have 4 season's they need to at least let it go till 10

    So is it final that Heroes will end at season 4?

    “Which begs the question: how is this supposed to be a “water cooler” moment? Nathan Petrelli died last year, and was just living on through Sylar.

    Of course with Peter now having the ability to heal and Hiro still able to time travel they can always go back and save him over and over ad naseum. Actually I like the character but I think the show is backing away from all things political…a wise move.

    Keep Nathan and his ability to fly, but get rid of the political aspects they were delving off into. With the amount of “abilities” they can create (many untapped as of yet) and the amount of new and unknown actors who would love a chance to be on the show, there is no reason it couldn't go on for many years to come.

    Let's hope it does…

    This is not good.I liked him.

    As I said earlier, Nathan's death (remember only a few people IN THE SHOW know he is really dead) will piss Peter off. So what I see happening is that Peter will gather HRG, Claire, Hiro, Matt, and who knows who else to go after Sylar and his carny friends…thus the turning point in the season that was talked about earlier. Hopefully Peter gets his “sponge” power back because that would be awesome, and all out war with Peter facing off with Sylar.

    After “Once Upon a Time in Texas,” I thought they were talking about Suresh, but of course they would by talking about character that was already dead! This doesn't shock me like Heroes normally would, but the good thing about this is that Hiro will probably save Suresh after all.

  • dozer420

    sucks he had to read the script and kinda get fired at the same time…feel bad for that. I have always liked the character Nathan and thought he always served a great significance but I am cool with him passing. This will surely open so many doors for Peter to become his own man in a great way.

  • aspirapolvere

    And I was actually worried about those spoiler warnings… Well, I think the show needs some new blood. It's not necessary to kill off everyone, but Kring's original idea of introducing new groups every season seemed much better. Now it just feels like these characters are losing their purpose. Only Sylar's story remains interesting. Don't get me wrong, I still love this series (my favorite, along with The Office)
