Even though Heroes
fans are still reeling from the Big Bad Biohazard revealed at the end of the last episode, NBC is already coming out with preview footage of next Monday's all new episode, “Out of Time.” The official press releases clues us in to the storylines moving forward in the next episode. Continue reading for mild spoilers about what's to come in this new episode, and also to see special video clips from “Out of Time.”
In this episode, we'll see Peter (Milo Ventimiglia
) and Caitlin getting a tutorial in future biohazard crisis management. Also, “Hiro (Masi Oka
) and Kensei's (David Anders
) legendary journey takes a dramatic, final turn.” The one word in that sentence that should make all Heroes fans happy: “final.” Looks like our boy will finally be escaping the purgatory that is feudal Japan soon and returning home. Too bad for him the news isn't good, as he still has no idea that his father is dead. Meanwhile, the Claire/West borefest continues as we slouch towards the reveal that HRG is West's kidnapper.
Most exciting, Mohinder (Sendhil Ramamurthy
), Parkman (Greg Grunberg
), Nathan (Adrian Pasdar
), Niki (Ali Larter
) and Bob team up to fight the Nightmare Man, aka Papa Parkman. That is one eclectic group of individuals, though I'm not sure how flying, mind reading and alchemy can take down the Nightmare Man. It will be quite interesting to see the Nathan/Niki dynamic, given their history.
There's no word on Sylar and the Honduran Wonder Twins, so we may be spared at least one of the show's many floundering storylines this week. Kristen Bell
fans will have to keep being patient: Elle doesn't return until episode 8.
Now, onto the exciting video footage from “Out of Time.” There are three clips to choose from, and first up is a scene of HRG (Jack Coleman
) studying the recently discovered Isaac Mednez paintings while calling up Mohinder. There are two very interesting things to come out of this clip. The first is that the painting I previously claimed was Peter shooting lightening from his hands is actually Mohinder shooting a Company-issued gun. Either my eyesight is going or Isaac was a terrible artist. The second is that Coleman is great at playing a total bad ass.
