Should Heroes slow down and fill in the holes

Heroes seems to be going at 2000mph this season to try to help their ratings and with every episode you are left with more and more questions....


Unfortunately, IMO this is not a good thing. Most questions I have had are my attempts at filling holes in the plot and trying to find some excuse for the careless contradictions that keep occuring. I have read a huge number of discussions of people trying to do the same.


The whole "Claire, Adam, Peter can't die" although they all have done(Adam and future peter Permanently it seems)


What happened to the girl in the burger bar last season who could mimic muscle movements??


Seems they are just going so fast that they are being extremely careless with the "science" that we all try to put to it.


Any thoughts? Any other examples?

yes it's so fast I can't hardly connect the dots. maybe that's the attraction of the show. like the previous seasons, it all comes together in the end.

the first season was definitely as complicated. I'm sure the directors, creators, producers discovered that complexity was the formula that made the show attractive, so as humans do, they push it to the limit!

honestly it shocks me when people say heroes is too confusing. adam dies because arthur takes away his powers. arthur has the ability to take peoples powers.Whereas as adams abilty developed his cells started dying and regenerating in equilibrium. thats why he stopped aging. so as arthur took his abilities away four hundred years of using his powers took its toll.And they never said adam, peter and claire cant die. they die in some excepional circumstances like when their heads are taken off. Sylar even killed peter in season 1 but he came back to life when claire removed the glass from the back of his head.Claire also died in season 1 when that tree branch pierced the back of her head and she also came back to life when it was removed.I hope this clears things up. and also if anyone has any questions i will be happy to answer them if i know the answer.

Ok fill in this blank Satreed if Peter, Sylar, Mr & Mrs Pattrelli have mind powers (e.g. premonition dreams (Angela)) or powers that acquire other powers(the other guys) then where does Nathans ability come from and being the oldest how could he be the only one born without an ability?

well maybe Angela slept with some other guy and had a baby then Mr Pettrelli found out that he had no powers which means that Nathan had no powers so Mr Pettrelli want to kill him =) + Peter and Syler went the same road looking for abilities and trying to understand them and staff like that, but Nathan just dont care and in season 1 didnt even want to hear how Peter was explaining what happening to him.... so Nathan and went his own way as guy in diplomatic. so yeah that my side of understanding =)

satreed, I get what happened to Adam and i understand how someone with cellular regeneration could die. But Sylar told Claire that he couldn't kill her even if he wanted to.
If it now ends up that Nathan isn't a Petrelli then I am gonna be annoyed. But it would make sense as the other family members have real powers and his is artificial. It seems that the writers have backed themselves into a corner on that one.
No-one has explained yet where the muscle mimic girl has gone, also West(claire's love interest from season two). If Claire can grow back a little toe why didn't she grow back her skull cap and hair when Sylar took it off.
Answers on a postcard.....

greatest1eva: its not necessary that a person whose parents have abilities that he must have abilities as well. I think it comes down to probability. because its all based on genetics right. so it means that if both your parents have an ability you stand a better chance of having an ability but it does not mean you have to have an ability. an example of this is mohinder suresh. his dead sister had an ability where as he did not.Nathan got his powers from the formula when he was young. his body was able to handle it because he carried recessive genes of the abilities in him. but he had different powers because his genetic make up was different. in the 1st episode of the 3rd season mohinder told maya how everybodies ability would be different based on their D.N.A or something like that.

Miffy jeff: i think sylar told claire he could not kill her because they wanted to change his character. i mean they are trying to turn him into a good guy. they are trying to blame everything he has done on his powers (the hunger). maybe, he said it because he could not kill a person whose abilities he was not taking. i think they are going to explain more about claires powers later.it also makes sense if he meant he cant kill her permanently. because if she gets shot once th bullet is removed she heals right. maybe if her head is reattached after its been taken off it heals as well. Adam was killed permanently because his powers were taken.On the whole i believe they will answer this question later on in the season

you're right heroes isn't that confusing but they never seem to answer any questions til the end but i guess that the thrill of it all....
About nathan ... who says that he doesn't have any abilities ... like mohinder said everyone's abilities show up in different ways and Nathan unlike his brothers never went looking for his which means he could have one but just not know it. I mean how did he come back to life in the beginning of this season if he had no other powers than flying? The only person who could have saved him was claire, adam or linderman and none of these three pple were there at Nathan's resurection... this makes me believe that Nathan has some innate ability to absorb powers that we are just haven't discovered yet (my guess is through blood ... his body remembers the blood given to him by adam in second season and kicked it into gear again when nathan needed it)
as for the other characters such as mika, and the muscles mimic girl, and wess ... im sure they were just written out so that other stories could be told.... maybe there story is already over or maybe we'll see them again... it doesn't matter .. they weren't central to the underlying main plot of heroes...

Couldn't Hiro go back in time to when Adam was alive and warn him about Mr P? Then he'd still be alive?Oh, my head hurts.....

Terisha i dont think nathan has any ability apart from his flight. angela said he was not born with an ability in this season. and also she can see the future so if his powers were going to manifest she would have known about it and they wouldnt have needed to inject him.I think he came back from the dead because he had adams blood. i think the blood was still in his system or something, so he healed that way.
