Hiro tries to talk Adam Monroe into helping them track down the Formula, but the man who killed Hiro’s father isn’t very happy about being trapped in a coffin since the end of season 2. When Adam refuses, Hiro stops time and traps him in the coffin again, causing Monroe to call Hiro a “Japanese Nazi.” After accusing Angela of being the villainous mastermind behind the missing Formula, Adam offers to help find the real leader of the villains.
They go to a bar for help, but Adam Monroe tricks Hiro and Ando and escapes, because, as Ando explains, they’re the “worst heroes ever.” Unfortunately for Adam, he’s knocked out and captured by Knox, who has teamed up with Daphne on the order of Linderman.
The burgeoning Evil League of Evil tries to get Hiro to join them, and Hiro thinks he can use this as a chance to find the Formula. Knox has a tough initiation ritual: he wants Hiro to kill Ando. Hiro takes a sword and, regrettably, stabs Ando in the chest. At this point, I urge you to check out BuddyTV’s exclusive preview of next week’s episode
if you want to know how this plays out.
With Knox, Adam and Hiro on board, Linderman commands Daphne to get one more member for their group: her future husband Matt Parkman. Daphne agrees, although she figures out Linderman isn’t really there. What she doesn’t know is what Heroes finally reveals in the final minutes: Linderman is a creation of Maury Parkman! That’s right, Matt’s crazy dad is back, making Nathan think he’s talking to God and orchestrating the team of villains.
Meanwhile, Angela has another future dream in which Tracy, Nathan and Peter are all dead at the hands of a mystery man with the apparent ability to paralyze people. The man in Angela’s dream is also the one pulling Maury Parkman’s strings. He’s being kept alive on a respirator, and his name is Arthur Petrelli! If you were shocked, you didn’t watch the previews or read the first paragraph of this recap, because a perfectly awesome twist was totally ruined by the promotion department of NBC.
