Articles for Heroes Reborn Season 5

Now that Sylar‘s officially back and in the arms of his newfound Carnie family, it‘s time to jumpstart the real Sylar courtesy of Samuel the barker in the Heroes episode "Tabula Rasa." But before we move on to the preview, here‘s what happened so far: Instead of recruiting Claire, the Carnies take in Sylar just in time to hide him from the cops. After some girl-on-girl action, Claire and Gretchen are welcomed into the sorority while Peter and Emma bond over their abilities. Hiro, on the other hand, teleports in Peter‘s apartment and collapses. Read more »
Nothing big really happened in "Tabula Rasa," the sixth episode of Heroes‘ fourth season, so I was a bit disappointed that the story didn‘t significantly make a big leap forward. There was also no mention of Claire‘s college adventures from last week nor did it tap on Angela‘s quest to find her missing son Nathan. However, I give credit to the coherence of the three student-teacher story arcs tackled through Noah and Jeremy, Emma and Hiro, and Sylar and Samuel. Read more »
Now that Emma has seemingly embraced her powers on Heroes, thanks to Hiro‘s little magic trick, we‘ll probably be seeing more rainbow colors as she gets more embroiled in the drama of helping others and saving lives. But there‘s a lot more in store Emma, according to series creator Tim Kring, who promises that the crack Emma made in her wall in the episode "Hysterical Blindness" is the just the beginning of what she‘s capable of. Read more »
Heroes is gearing up for Halloween by kicking off tonight‘s episode with a screaming scavenger hunt. "Strange Attractors," the seventh episode of the fourth season, finds Claire (Hayden Panettiere) and Gretchen (Madeline Zima) being hazed by their new sisters after being invited to join the sorority. However, they quickly realize that the sorority‘s initiation ritual maybe more than just a game when their lives become at risk.  Read more »
This week on Heroes, it‘s all about Noah and Tracy trying to save young Jeremy, Claire seeking a normal college life but exposing herself in the process and Matt trying to quiet those voices in his head but to no avail. After a relatively slow-paced interval, "Strange Attractors" provides us three storylines with continuity and the promise that it will all add up to something someday.  Read more »
Tonight on Heroes, Hiro (Masi Oka) travels three years into the past to save Charlie (Jayma Mays), the love of his life from the hands of Sylar (Zachary Quinto). But as we all know, changing the past results in some dire consequences for the future. So the question is: Is Charlie worth it? We find out in "Once Upon a Time in Texas," the eighth episode of Heroes‘ fourth season. Read more »
Someone‘s going to die on Heroes and it‘s someone that "will go unnoticed by even the most casual fan." Is it Hiro, Peter, Nathan or HRG? Sure we‘ve heard tons of rumors surrounding a major death this season on Heroes, but so far we haven‘t stumbled on anything substantial that will allow us to put a name and a face on the controversial character. But it looks like‘s Kristin Dos Santos has finally learned the identity of the said character and unfortunately, his departure is sure to break a lot of hearts.Warning: Major death revealed after the jump!!! Read more »
Once upon a time in Texas, Hiro met a waitress named Charlie. They fell in love but didn‘t get the happy ending they deserved because Charlie died at the hands of Sylar, leaving Hiro heartbroken and lost. Last night‘s episode of Heroes revisited this love story as part of Hiro‘s quest to right the wrongs of the past only what followed was a complicated set of cause-and-effect, reminding us that toying with the past will most definitely result in dire consequences for the future. Read more »
After taking last week‘s trip down memory lane, it‘s time to revert our focus to what the fourth season of Heroes is really all about: Redemption! But redemption is not only about our heroes seeking salvation, nor is it just about the show‘s attempt to spring back to its former glory. It‘s also about the Carnival trying to recover from the loss of their leader and seeking revenge in the process.  Unfortunately for our heroes, things are already falling into place for the Carnies. Proving that he‘s mastered the art of manipulation, Samuel already has Hiro at his beck and call and this week, he sets his eyes on Claire to get through her dad. Read more »

I recently stopped by AOL‘s popular television podcast DVR Divas. The show is an overall review of the fun and crazy shows on TV, andthis week I stopped by to offer up my unique and very compulsive loveof TV.If you don‘t know, I watch A LOT of TV.  Basically, I‘m like one of those people on the A&E documentary series Horders, only with television.  I watch more than 50 shows every week on a regular basis, everything from cable gems like Dexter and Sons of Anarchy to mainstream hits like Grey‘s Anatomy and Dancing with the Stars to guilty pleasures like One Tree Hill and The Vampire Diaries.  Read more »
It‘s time to move on from the events that happened in the infamous roadside dinner in Texas to the events that transpired two weeks ago on Heroes. While the three-character arc per episode has made storylines a bit cohesive, it makes the show a little bit confusing to follow because of the sporadic continuity. But if you‘ve stuck by this show through thick and thin, then you‘re already used to this minor glitch. Now on to the highlights of "Shadowboxing," the ninth episode of Heroes‘ fourth season.  Read more »
A mini reunion takes place tonight on Heroes as Peter, Nathan, Sylar and Matt all come together in the same room for the first time after all that body switching mess in the third season finale. Matt, however, is still subconsciously trapped inside his own mind while his body is in critical condition after being shot several times in last week‘s episode. While Matt saw his self-sacrificing deed as an effort to stop Sylar from taking over his mind and body, it looks like he failed to see that his heroic effort will eventually bring Sylar closer to his own body. Warning: Video and episode photos that contain spoilers are posted after the jump. Read more »
After two months of watching Heroes, we finally get some answers to the baffling mystery that is Samuel.  But that‘s not all we get from "Brother‘s Keeper," the 10th episode of Heroes‘ fourth season. There‘s also significant progress about the whole body-switching mess involving Sylar, Nathan and Matt now that the truth has been revealed. Read more »
Good news Chuck fans! Instead of keeping the spry dramedy on hold until March, NBC has set an earlier-than-expected return for the "average computer-whiz-next-door." Chuck kicks off its third season on Sunday, January 10 at 9pm with two action-packed, back-to-back original episodes before officially moving to its regular timeslot on Mondays, beginning January 11 at 8pm. Yes, this means we‘ll be getting three hours of Zachary Levi over two nights is a row!  Read more »
It‘s Thanksgiving on Heroes and Noah has a few surprises for his guests. If you recall, Noah didn‘t really do anything on last week‘s episode but this week he‘ll be hosting an untraditional dinner for the timely occasion which includes ex-wife Sandra, daughter Claire and friends Lauren Gilmore and Doug Douglas.NBC has released a promo trailer for tonight‘s episode that includes some spoilers so watch and read the rest of this article at your own risk.   Read more »
It‘s Thanksgiving but there‘s nothing to be grateful for, at least for most of the characters of Heroes. Hiro still hasn‘t found Charlie, Claire is not in the mood for the holidays while Peter and Nathan are still dealing with the fact that real Nathan‘s already dead.  Read more »

As Heroes concluded what vaguely looked like its mid-season finale, the show alluded to the five stages of grief (denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance)--- all of which I‘ve gone through unknowingly as I watch the first 10 episodes of the fourth season play out. This week, though, it‘s all about acceptance of the things we can‘t change, what is and what should never be.  Case in point: Nathan Petrelli. Ever since Sylar killed Nathan, and Matt instilled Nathan‘s memories into Sylar‘s head, leading him to shape-shift into Nathan at the end of last season, Heroes fans knew that it‘s only a matter of time before the show officially pulled the plug on the U.S. senator. And so, what might as well be the worst-kept secret of the TV season happened last night. Read more »
Fans mourning the loss of Nathan Petrelli on Heroes may have yet another death to grieve for. Word on the street is that NBC will finally pull the plug on the troubled series after years of enduring harsh criticisms and rocky ratings.  If this is true, season 4, which is ironically called "Redemption," will be the show‘s last. Read more »
Hearing about rumors of NBC pulling the plug on Heroes after its fourth season have triggered a lot of emotions among fans--- with some looking forward to a long overdue cancellation, while others are still hoping for a renewal. But hope is not entirely lost, at least according to castmember Dawn Olivieri, who plays the carnie Lydia on the troubled NBC series. In an interview with Digital Spy, the Heroes actress has somewhat reassured fans that the show isn‘t likely to get the axe, in spite of rumors that season 4 may be its last. Read more »
Heroes continues its fourth season tonight with a two-hour special episode that kicks off by paying tribute to a fallen hero. Last time we saw the NBC series, Peter used the Haitian‘s ability to get rid of Sylar and bring back Nathan, but was forced to accept Nathan‘s fate as his brother leaped over the edge of a building. Read more »
Heroes returns with a two-hour episode that revolves around a fallen hero, a quest for revenge and a diabolical master plan. Last time we saw Heroes, Claire decided to stay in the carnival, while Peter used the Haitian‘s ability to get rid of Sylar and bring back Nathan, but was forced to accept Nathan‘s fate as his brother leaped over the edge of a building. Read more »
With less screen time and a storyline that‘s getting more and more complicated, Hiro Nakamura is turning out to be one of the least intriguing characters on the fourth season of Heroes-- at least in my opinion. He‘s stuck in a love story that will most likely have a bad ending (considering his on-screen love interest Jayma Mays is on another show) and he‘s still struggling with the consequences of his brain tumor. But his portrayer, Masi Oka, seems optimistic about his character‘s direction. Warning: Spoilers ahead! Read more »
Can people with special abilities live in the real world out in the open? That seems to be what the Carnival is struggling with, much like the very premise of Heroes. With five remaining episodes left before season 4 comes to an end, we‘ll hopefully get some answers as Samuel‘s master plan comes to fruition. Series creator Tim Kring hints on several things to expect for the last episodes, including a strange alliance and what should be done to take down this season‘s villain.Warning: Spoilers ahead!!! Read more »
Just wishful thinking? Maybe. But Heroes cast member Greg Grunberg, who plays Matt Parkman, doesn‘t "have any doubt that the show will be back." And that‘s in spite of wobbly ratings and cynical spectators who seem to proliferate each week.  Read more »

Haiti native Jimmy Jean-Louis, who is perhaps best known for playing "The Haitian" on NBC‘s Heroes, is struggling to locate his family and friends following the powerful earthquake that struck his nation. "I have not slept yet. The second house that I grew up in was down, and some relatives have died, from what I have been told," Jean-Louis said Wednesday. "I haven‘t been able to reach my parents. I have heard that they are OK, but I do not know what is going on around them." Read more »
Hiro‘s life hangs in the balance as his brain tumor worsens in the Heroes episode entitled "Pass/Fail." Tonight, Hiro is forced to deal with some of his past decisions which may lead to his demise when the verdict of an unexpected trial is revealed.To catch up on last week‘s episode, check out this article. Read more »
Last night‘s episode of Heroes shed light on the morality of Hiro‘s past decisions, among other things. Using Hiro‘s worsening condition, the show gave us a glimpse of Hiro‘s time-altering adventures and reminded us of the long forgotten reason as to why Hiro started to use his powers in the first place. Read more »
While NBC is embroiled in a late night scandal, things are just asbleak and horrifying for the network‘s prime-time schedule.  Lastnight‘s new episode of Heroes was watched by just 3.9 million viewers, an all-time low for the once beloved and Emmy-nominated series.If you‘re wondering what happened, ask yourself two questions: did you used to watch Heroes and are you still watching now?  Heroespremiere with over 14 million viewers and hit its highest point in theseason 2 premiere with almost 17 million.  It‘s now less than a quarterof that.  Read more »
Though there are a lot more important things I‘d rather focus on, it seems like Hayden Panettiere‘s new hair do is getting all the buzz and attention these days. Apparently, the 20-year-old Heroes actress, who plays Claire Bennet on the NBC drama, decided to go through a drastic makeover by coloring hair her red. And critics are having a field day over it! Read more »
After paying Claire a visit, sharing that awkward kiss with her and deducing that he must rid himself of his powers in order to be human again, Sylar visits the home of Matt Parkman, whose unsuspecting wife welcomes him in, in the Heroes episode "The Art of Deception." Read more »
"The Art of Deception," this week‘s Heroes episode, sort of served as a turning point for several characters. Samuel had one in the wake of his destructive rage that swallowed an entire town, as did Sylar, who decided that the best way to feel like a normal person is to take away all his powers with the help of Matt Parkman.While most characters were at crossroads, it didn‘t really feel like the show was gearing up for something big even though this episode was supposed to serve as a stepping stone for whatever it is Heroes has planned for the finale.  Read more »
Another actor has joined the DUI bandwagon. Adrian Pasdar, who is perhaps best known for playing flying Senator Nathan Petrelli on NBC‘s Heroes, was busted for suspicion of drunk driving early this morning after police spotted him swerving recklessly.

Tonight‘s installment marks the penultimate episode of Heroes‘ fourth season and yet it feels like there are still so many mysteries left to be resolved. Who will stop Samuel? What will happen to Sylar? And will there be more odd revelations? Hopefully, we‘ll inch closer to those answers in the episode entitled "The Wall." Read more »
Dawn Olivieri may be done playing Lydia on Heroes but she‘s well aware of what‘s in store for next week‘s fourth season finale. And while she‘s not divulging any details, she does hint that more secrets will be exposed and even assures fans that they‘ll be pleased at how the season wraps up.  Read more »
With the conclusion of Heroes drawing closer, we‘re now left with two major plots: Samuel‘s wicked end game and Sylar‘s quest for normalcy--- which are likely to traverse in tonight‘s episode entitled "The Wall."   Last time we saw Heroes, Samuel framed Noah as the person responsible for the Carnival shootout that caused Lydia‘s death so he could redeem himself in the eyes of his Carnie family. Sylar, on the other hand, decided that the best way to feel like a normal person is to take away all his powers with the help of Matt Parkman, who then enclosed him with bricks in his basement.  Read more »
Heroes may have pulled the plug on Lydia but at least another TV series will be breathing new life to her portrayer Dawn Olivieri. According to TV Guide, the recently killed Heroes cast member has been cast as a werewolf on True Blood.  Read more »

Tonight will be a night unlike any other. It‘s the fourth season finale of Heroes (or possibly series finale) and hopefully, there will be proper closure to the tons of questions that need to be resolved.

If past Heroes finales have thought us anything, it‘s that we can expect to see all the good people with abilities, even those long-forgotten ones, to band together to bring down one big baddie. And that‘s exactly what happened tonight in the episode "A Brave New World," only this time, the villain we‘ve come to know and love since season 1 actually turned out to be a hero. Read more »
Now that Heroes has finished season 4, the ball is in NBC‘s court aboutrenewing it for yet another season.  Given NBC‘s recent track record ofdecision-making, we suspect Heroes will be renewed for another fiveseasons right after The Biggest Loser is expanded to three-hourepisodes.But this is a very bad idea.  Despite ending with "To Be Continued," the start of Volume 6 is as good as any place to end the series.  Keeping Heroes on the air is a deadly mistake NBC should avoid at allcosts.  Here are just five of the best reasons we can think of tocancel Heroes right now.  Read more »
Whether it‘s on Twitter, Facebook or some fan-made campaign sites, loyal Heroes supporters are desperately trying to save the troubled NBC series. And all their efforts have seemingly increased now that the show has wrapped up its fourth season, which earned mostly unpleasant reviews.   Read more »
Looking for new updates on Heroes hasn‘t exactly been a walk in the park these days especially since the NBC series already wrapped up its fourth (or possibly final) season. One blind item, however, caught my attention and though it doesn‘t really directly talk about any of the show‘s cast members, it does give away some clues that make me think otherwise.    Read more »

I had never been to Costa Mesa, California before this past weekend.  So why did I make the hour trek out from Los Angeles?  I had to be at Loehmann‘s to see Band from TV!  Like any obsessive House fan, I knew that they would be playing.  Who‘s Band from TV, you ask? Band from TV is a band with TV actors that play solely for the charities of their choice.  So why did they decide to play at a department store?  Well, as it turns out, it‘s not that weird.  According to one of the band‘s founding members, Greg Grunberg of Heroes, playing at Loehmann‘s makes perfect sense because Grunberg‘s iPhone app "Yowza" offers coupons to the discount department store.  Listen to the exclusive interview with Greg Grunberg  Read more »
