Holy Shocker! A Major Death Is Coming to Heroes - Featured

Ouch.


This one is going to leave a mark.


Sources over on NBC's Heroes confirm to me [E!Online's Kristin Dos Santos] that a major death is in the works, and this is not one that will go unnoticed by even the most casual fan.



It is huge.


So who is it?


Well, you know how these things go...We can't come right out and name any names. (Unless someone can hook me up right quick with the Witness Protection Program?)


However, I will tell you that this leading character is a male, and he is not necessarily pictured above. (He might be, he might not be.) And he is one of the original cast.


And you thought Hayden's same-sex kiss was surprising, eh?


Clearly the producers are pulling out all the stops this season in an effort to ramp up storylines and pull out a big watercooler-worthy surprise.


But I have to say that I, for one, will miss this guy. Big-time.


Now here's the fun and torturous part for you: Start guessing below...

do you really think that would kill Peter I really hope not cause then I am going to be extremely mad but it could be Noah because he doesn't really have a story with him or even Matt no story now that Sylar os back but although what happened with that one criminal. What about Nathan I mean he is sorta dead already but still alive maybe that is what they mean.

It had better be Hiro.Because if he goes all miracle-cure and then also someone else dies instead, it will be a travesty wrapped in a disaster.

I'm guessing Hiro too. Peter should take his ability go back to the past to copy his original ability not some diluted chemical version but I think the creators don't like how powerful Peter will be and they're probably trying to get rid of all time travelers anyway.

Well you could say it is Nathan Petrelli. though he kinda already died, but now with the Nathan(Sylar) being killed, and coming back as Sylar, I don't think we'll be seeing Nathan at all anymore.
Also, I think the reverse is going to happen. Matt is going to lose control of himself and Sylar is going to get full control of Matt.
Hiro won't die, too much of an original cast member, he pretty much is the show starter. He will get cured somehow.
They can kill off his buddy though. I think they have steered his power too far away from its original purpose to enhance the powers of others and towards the whole "I can shoot red lightning BS"
Claire can't die, so that's out.
Mohinder might die, but I would assume he'd have some sort of Jimminy Cricket role to help other heroes out even after he's dead somehow. How can they have the story without the narrator?
Those are my predictions... oh I could see Angela dying too, she's pretty much worthless. And I wonder what happened to her sister?

If it's Mohinder I will just laugh, because seriously WHERE DID HE GO? He's been absent from all season 4 episodes so far, and I really want him back. He's the most unfortunate character out of the entire cast, why make it worse by killing him?
I think it's going to be Hiro (but that may be too obvious for these scheming writers) or Noah, because he's lovable, but also expendable (altho i would much rather matt die).I won't even count Nathan, because he's already dead. really.
at least it isn't sylar dying. if he dies, i would have no reason to continue watching this show...

Sylar can't die. He is the driver of the show, and they just brought him back to life.
Nathan already died. So if this whole shbang is leading to the death of Nathan, then I'm going to be VERY disappointed, as well as many others will be. I think the writers have already implied Nathan is gone.
If Mohinder dies it couldn't possibly be for an interesting reason, He hasn't been here. They have mentioned his name however, and I believe he is not yet gone from this show. It would simply be too boring and no suspense if Mohinder died so I don't think it'll be him.
Peter's power has recently changed, and his character has been out of whack since season 1, and now there JUST starting to get back to it. I think the writers are trying to make those such as Hiro, Peter, and even Sylar who literally have the power to control the world be simply less powerful. I think they don't want Heroes to be so superior to the average human. I could see Peter dying for this new Andrea girl, and I suppose it would be a loss, yet an approachable death so I wouldn't necessarily rule him out although I believe their could be better.
I truly would be really angry and disappointed if they killed off Hiro. Hiro is the ONLY character who has truly grown on me. All the other characters (some more then others) have elements we can all relate too, but Hiro is truly the only high quality, thoroughly characterized character and it would serve more worse than good if they killed him off. I'm convinced they'll find a way to cure him and hopefully they can stretch it until the end of the season and make it somewhat dramatic.
Ando is expendable, and Hiro's character would drastically change if he died. Definitely a possibility.
Matt is also definitely a probable choice and in my prediction/opinion this is who they will/should kill off. I personally love Matt, he was and still remains to be one of my favorite characters in the show. However he is going slightly insane, and he is a character that is in my opinion "too powerful". Nobody should be able to put thoughts into someone else's mind. It would be so sad and so unfortunate if he died heroically, and I would certainly miss him. Matt is probably the best choice in my opinion.
So From Most likely to die to least: Matt, Ando, Peter, Mohinder, Sylar, Nathan

I really wish the marketing guys at Heroes would stop pumping up the "major death" plots. It is part of what is making the show lose fans when the character doesn't actually die or only dies in some sort of technicality but is still brought back in some way. (Nathan and Nikki are the prime offenders)
I really hope its not Hiro. He consistently has the best plots on the show and is by far the most enjoyable character.

From what I'v heard this sounds like the real deal...as in the real, good, old fasioned, dead as a doornob, rigor mortis, boohoohoo, time for a real funeral, and all that fun stuff deal. As far as that goes I want it to be Hiro (I love him but I will be mad if the whole "im gonna die" deal isnt gonna follow through) AND someone else. Claire? it would be fun to see Sylar remove Claires brains and destroy them as that would permenantly kill her.

If they kill Peter or Sylar I am DONE with the show. They're the only reason I watch honestlyPlease don't let it be them! If it has to be a major character I'd vote for Hiro, I'll miss him but not as much as the other two

Well you know it can't be Hiro as in previous episodes he was seen in the future as a samari warrier. He was angry over his friends death, that he blames himself, I would think that his friend is going to die, so that he can conclude his journey as a samari warrior.

I have a feeling it's going to be Hiro... As somebody mentioned previously, the writers should QUIT with the major death plot already. It's not original and is a desperate attempt to boost the slipping numbers. Is it me or the show this season seems to be almost as lost as the 2nd season?

it's disappointing that Mohinder is gone so far and i also miss his narrations it had a big impact on the show. and nikki is pointless btw, if hiro dies the show is going to turn for the worst. in the last episode hiro showed up in front of peter if peter takes his power and travels back in time to copy sylar or his own power or somehow regain his abilities then sylar as we all know is going to be back in action then we might have our hero and villain back again then the show might become interesting again. if noa dies then we lost the veteren of snag, tag and bag .

unfortunately, the death that occurs will be that of the main character, peter petrelli, that is the only way they could make things interesting, i hope it isnt, but hey, you know these producers always screw up somewhere, hero's is the greatest program on tv, and i hope it continues for a least another 2 or 3 seasons

The show has gotten so bad and off track, it's disappointing.
Hiro - too predictable. The writers won't make the death so obvious.
Matt, Mohinder, Noah, Ando - not a big deal, the story line can go on without them.
Peter - big mistake. He's too important for the show!
Nathan - really is already dead, so it's possible the writers are trying to milk for viewers by announcing a big death, when their "big shocker" is technically already dead.
Sylar - I'll stop watching the show. He's the best character by far.

Although it seems obvious that Hiro is the most likely to die, in the first season, the older Hiro teleported on the train and told Peter "save the cheerleader, save the world." If Hiro dies, then it's impossible for him to teleport and tell Peter that in the future.
Also, I don't think it's Peter. First of all, he's my favourite character. I would love if he was able to have more than 1 power at once again. But also, the future Peter has a big scar on his face. If he dies now, once again, he couldn't teleport either.
